I was so grateful when I was asked to shoot Melba's 100th birthday party. Her sweet niece had no idea what to get her for her birthday and then she decided that having someone come in and shoot the party would be just what she wanted. I have to say that this is one of favorite shoots so far. During my time with sweet Melba I learned so much about her.... she met her husband at chruch, she never learned to drive, she has two children and not one single grandchild, she has a smile for days, a love of jewelry, and that she was able to get around just fine until she fell a couple years back... can you imagine....up and walking at 98 years of age!!!
She greeted every guest at the party with a huge smile!! 
Family flew in from out of state to celebrate, so not only was is a
 birthday party but it was also a family reunion. 
Lots of photographs were shared. 
Melba and her sweet niece, who is now a great friend! 

Melba and her care giver.
They have been together for over four years!!! 

I got to hear her secrets.....
"I have never had my picture taken so much in my LIFE!" 
When everyone sang to her she was very moved.....
Ok, so maybe I was too. :) 
This is how I will remember Melba, my new friend,
 with a HUGE smile that lights up the room.

her hands......

Oh, how I hope I look this beautiful
when I am 100 years old.

She holds their hands for a while.....
their hearts forever.

First my weekend started off with a play put on by the Lakewood YSA ward.

Then I was blessed to be asked to shoot Melba's 100th birthday party.
I can honestly say that she smiled the entire time.

Little L Sneak Peek

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting this little man. He is one little guy with a HUGE personality!!! He was so much fun. When we grows up he wants to be a fire fighter so it is only fitting that we ended our session at a fire station.

H kids Sneak Peek

I had SOO much fun yesterday! My first session was with the H kids. They are just too darn cute for words!!! Now, I would be lying if I said that these boys didn't make me work for every single smile they gave me. I did find the way to their hearts..... bubble gum! :-)
