Ryan, his mom and I met up Saturday night - and it rained and rained. :( We'd already rescheduled once due to rain (which never ACTUALLY happened) - so we decided to go for it anyways, and see what we got. Definately dark outside, and definately WET, but we had fun anyways! Ryan got excited about the bubbles and the cars, the puddles and the umbrella - and BOY does that kid move FAST!! I could barely keep up with this two year-old! And I thought that MY two year-old was busy!! :) These three are finished so far - I love the second one!

This past May, we went on a cruise to Alaska - hands down, one of the most BEAUTIFUL places in the world! On the way we stopped in Victoria and went to the Buchart Gardens. I'd been told many times how lovely the gardens were, how amazing, gorgeous, etc . . . but it's hard to imagine a place when you have NO idea what to expect. I had NO IDEA what we would see, besides gardens (and honestly, I thought - how stunning can a garden be??). :) Well - turns out it really IS one of my favorite places I've ever been - and I've been a lot of places!!
Unfortunately, I don't remember much of the story behind the gardens, other than they use to be some sort of quarry and it was like a big hole in the earth. Then a woman (Ms. Buchart??) came along and looked at this hole in the ground full of rocks and saw this garden . . . and she set about to make it so. (Obviously not on her own - it's HUGE - but it was her idea initially.)
Anyways - should you ever be in British Columbia, and happen to be on Victoria . . . go visit these gardens. :) I posted a lot of my pictures on flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/elisabethnixonphotograhy/sets) - but these are a couple of my favorites. (Someday I hope to get to the REST of the Alaska pictures but for now, it's just flowers...)

Kalyn came over Tuesday night for the smashing of her birthday cake. What a blast! And FYI - you can WASH and WASH and birthday cake frosting STILL will leave a little stain and slipperiness to your floor! :) There was a LOT of sugar in that cake - probably what helped her last the whole time with such happy smiles. These are a couple of my favorites so far . . . Enjoy!

Today was a big day! First, painting at a friend's house for the morning and early afternoon, then a quick trip to Joanne's for some ribbon and paper . . . and then . . . the highlight of my day! A maternity session with Leah and Matt - it was a pleasure to meet both of you and I hope you enjoy this little preview of what's to come!! I had a wonderful time and am very excited about your photos, and also to get to meet little Jaxon soon and do his photographs as well!! :)

OK what a corney title - but how cute is SHE!! This is Kalyn and last night we took one year pictures - a little early....her birthday is in a month - same day as my Ella - but her parents are trying to stay ahead of the game a little! Smart, huh? :) It rained and rained so we could not go outside as planned - but improvised and managed some pretty pictures inside . . . hopefully we'll have a second session together soon so we can get those outside pictures we REALLY want!!
Check 'em out!
