Bye, Bye Blogger

I have officially moved to a new photography blog! It was time! Blogger, you have been good to me:(
I have been needing to make this change for a while now, but with such a busy fall season, I just couldn't put the time or energy into a new project.
My new blog is www.laurenristowphotography.com
I hope you will come follow me as I am super excited for 2012!!!!!!!


Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend! I have been working on editing pictures from the Myer's wedding all week, so I thought I would post a sneak peek of beautiful Chelsea and her ladies.


Randy and Nicole- Engaged!

Fall and early winter has been quite chilly here in Prescott! There have been many shoots over the last few months, that I have thought, "Okay, this is the coldest day for a session." I was wrong! This engagement session with such an adorable couple Randy and Nicole, was the coldest session yet. The high was 34 degrees and the wind chill was miserable!
Randy and Nicole live out of state. They were so excited about their recent engagement, that they wanted to have pictures taken, while they were here for the Holidays visiting family. They were so amazing, and kind to work with despite our FRIGID weather! Beautiful Nicole was even so gracious, even though I know she was so cold! I tried to keep things moving, so we took comfort in the warmth of our cars driving to different locations.


Happy New Year!!

Hello lovely! I sincerely hope you had such a wonderful Christmas and New Year with those that you love! I am not the type to make a New Year's Resolution, because I don't believe in them, but this year I do have many aspirations, and fun things planned. Two things have really been on my heart; take more pictures, and read my Bible daily. Yes, that's right "take more pictures." Not posed pictures or paid shoots, but just ordinary everyday kind of life pictures. I have actually joined two different "52" groups to help keep myself accountable to this. My second thought is spending more time in God's word. Reading my Bible everyday. I just want to open it, and read without any plans, but to to truly allow God's word to inspire me. What are your plans for the new year? 
Of course what would be a post without a picture to go with it?  Here's a sneak peek from the engagement shoot of Randy and Nicole. I have been working on their pictures, and will be posting more soon!


The Long Family

This was a really playful shoot with the Long family! Tara and Jarrod have three adorable little girls, Elle, Claire, and Addie. They were so full of personality and sweetness! 
This was officially my last shoot of the Holiday Season, and what a fun way to end the season it was! Here are a few pictures from our time together.
