Jacquelyn & Jacqueline

When Baby Jacquelyn was 7 days old her mommy asked me
to come help on a photo shoot with Jacquelyn and her brothers
and sister.

Then right before I was to leave her mommy called and 
said that Jacquelyn and Jacqueline should have their
pictures taken together and that the studio had a purple
tutu so I might want to dress in purple.  

Grandma hadn't even curled her hair that day so she was
glad she got a call about being in the photos!

A quick wardrobe change and some curls and we were all
set for getting our pictures together.

(Of course Baby Jacquelyn's favorite color is purple and she is
a bling bling girl too!)

I had never been to a newborn shoot before and the
staff at
Camera Shy
Lehi, Utah 
were absolutely amazing.  

They had incredible props and backgrounds and even darling
headbands and tutus you could use.

Jacquelyn didn't really want to sleep, but they cleverly
turned on a blow dryer to help her close her eyes and
patiently waited for her.  

I just loved this gorgeous screen painted in four colors.

What a beautiful shot with mommy!

Big sister couldn't be happier!

Here is her loving tribe!

I just love their props.  They take these fun dressers and 
repaint them all of the time.  They told us that when we
came back things would be all different.  

I just love this chair made out of a door and
part of a bed.  A little girl in a pink floral outfit
had her photo taken in it and the proofs were

I would love to have a dresser like this,
 it was just enchanting.

And this aqua blue one was so gorgeous too.  
Everything they had was so up to the minute in style.

Three generations of hands -
grandma, mommy, sister and baby.

Here we got her eyes slightly closed.

The session was only $89.00 and you get the CD of
photos to do with as you please.  

I highly recommend Camera Shy and can't wait to go back
and see what new things they have.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  34. Precious! Photography has improved by leaps and bounds from when our kids were little in the 1970's and 80's. No more stiff shots, all of these are so unique and a good photographer changes it up often. You wouldn't be able to decide which shots were the best and you'd take them ALL! It's definitely a plan...

  35. What gorgeous photos from top to bottom! How lucky that you even were able to wear your favorite color:) What a beautiful grandma you are!

  36. "GORGEOUS,GORGEOUS,GORGEOUS"!!! This is the most incredibly "Beautiful Post"! LOVE EVERY SINGLE PHOTO! Do I see you "GLOWING"! AND PURPLE IS DEFINITELY BABY Jackie's color too!!! These pictures could win prizes and "Hearts would melt at viewing them"! Wow what memories you have captured. (((LOVED IT)))!
    Thank you for sharing...It's taking me time to get around, MY COMPUTER is still having "Problems". NOW my email is DOWN, UGH! I spotted this post on your sidebar and Had TO COME SEE!!!
    Big Squishy Hugs to you and your beautiful family!!!
