Crown Modena & Friends

I used to live in this dorm called Freeman. The year before I got to Iowa State, they started an annual concert (which I got to help out with my Freshman year there). This year they had some local bands including Crown Modena which has a couple of my friends in it. Here's a couple photos from the day:

Fliers from the past concerts:

Here's the lovely Jacque & her fiance, Brian. Just a heads up, you'll be seeing a bunch more photos of these two soon! I'm doing their engagement photos a week from Thursday!

Next is of my crazy dorm friends...

Sheena, Chelsie, & Brian

I know there are very few band pics, but it was too difficult to choose. If you would like to see more, go here.

Last week was VEISHEA at Iowa State. For those of you that don't know what VEISHEA is go here and here. Plus you should probably experience it in person, it's pretty great.

Saturday on Central Campus.

We stopped by a table to paint a piece of fabric that will be going into a quilt for sick children. The one on the bottom right is mine! [photos in collage are by Sheena.]

I just liked taking pictures of these guys...

Can't forget the Cherry Pie!

And for the grand finale...
The youtube sensation that's spreading across the nation!
Fran & Marlo Cowan who have been married 62 years and are the most adorable couple ever! (Check out their youtube video here!)

And that was my Saturday. Friday night we went and seen Guys & Dolls at Cy Stephens Auditorium (which was amazing!) I still have "Luck be a lady tonight" stuck in my head!

Ma Mère

I had a photo-shoot with my beautiful mother last weekend! Here's proof:

Dear Sheena:

Since you refused to write this blog, I get to choose which pictures will be shown.
All photos of me were taken by my little sister, Sheena:

Chels & I found this trunk in Goodwill the other day. I kinda like it. :-)

Now, since we're pretty much identical except for her gorgeous blue eyes & very pretty hair I think it's only fair that you get some pictures of Sheena:

Please remember: I LOVE YOU SHEENA!!

Trenton James

As we know from my last blog, I'm not nearly as cool as my little brother. I was telling him he should let me try to shoot one of his guns. He had to promptly inform me that the one pictured here would be too much for me to handle. ...gee, don't you love his faith in me? :-)

Well, here you go, here's some more pics of this crazy kid:

Be vewy vewy quiet...I'm hunting wabbits.

This weekend when I came home, I was informed that my little brother was going to let me take pictures of him. Of course I was thrilled!

It was a pretty good weekend. I had a mini shoot with Trenton & the next day with Mom, so you will get to see blog posts of each. Oh, and Sheena took pictures of me... she'll probably bite my head off if I don't have a blog for those too.

I just got home today, but of course I HAVE to post a photo or two.

I'm going to go ahead and give you permission to laugh at me...because, as you'll see below, I'm attempting to be as cool as Trenton:

Ok, ok, you can stop laughing now!
Here's a sneak peek of my little brother in all his awesomeness:

Stay tuned for more!!

If you give a mouse a cookie...

...he'll want a glass of milk. I'm kind of like that mouse, just replace the cookie with a lens. So I went out and took some pictures and thought I'd share them with you:

I think green is my most recent favorite color...

This is my HS class ring. I like taking pictures of things and it was all I had on me during this walk. I'll just go ahead & use this as a shout-out to all the other MT "peeps"

We'll end with this one, which is now my computer's desktop image:

Have a great weekend & enjoy the beautiful spring weather!
