Picture Day: Part Two

Last week Ang wrote a post about how it was time to update our pictures.  We have been hiding behind our ski goggles long enough!   April Gallagher at https://www.facebook.com/makeupbyaprilgallagher used her amazing skills to make us look better than the “everyday us”.  She does such fantastic work if you need makeup for a special date night, wedding, or prom, check out her page! The day was a little drizzly, typical for the PNW, but we were able to get some good lighting with Heather Boren @ heatherboren.com.  She is a very talented photographer who has good vision and beautiful results.  So we of course wanted pictures on the porch.  We really wanted to post it side by side of the picture of my great grandma Mamie.  How fun is that?  These pictures are a century apart.  So cool to connect with the great grandma I never knew.





We like the house in the background in this one.

It seemed so funny doing headshots, I don’t think I have done that since my wedding pictures!   But that was just a few years ago….hahaha!!!!  Now that we had them done, I love them both.  So if you are a mommy out there, always the one behind the camera, take a few minutes to get pictures of YOU!  One day your kids and grandkids will thank you.

Picture Day

Heidi and I decided it was time to update our profile picture from our ski goggles to something hip and cute. Except I really don’t feel hip and cute lol. I’m a mom with teenagers who constantly remind me that I’m so un-cool! Because that’s what teenagers do!  No, seriously I love to craft and decorate my house and I feel pretty confident in it. When it comes to my wardrobe I kind of stress out, I think I do an ok job but it doesn’t come easy to me.

So we headed out for a shopping trip and had so much fun. We kept cracking jokes about how cute and trendy we were going to look. We found a few things that were cute but we weren’t to exited about it. Then we made it to target and I saw a picture of a model with the cutest outfit all pulled together. Ta-Da thats exactly what I needed, lol. We had so much fun pulling it all together from there. Here is what we we decided on.

This is my outfit.

This is all from Target

We made a whole girly day out of it by getting our make up done by the amazingly talented April Gallagher. https://www.facebook.com/makeupbyaprilgallagher

Heather Boren Photography http://heatherboren.com out to my moms house so we could get our pictures taken on the same front porch as Heidi’s great grandma Mammi.  I know Heather is going to work her magic and we’re  going to have some beautiful pictures to show you.



Thanks to my mom for letting us come out to her house and being so supportive of us!  I love you!

Can’t wait to share with you how they turn out.
