8-year-old Baptism Photos

 My family and I just spent a week up in beautiful Star Valley Wyoming.  I grew up there, but I totally didn't appreciate the beautifulness that surrounded me.  Now, having been gone from there for a LOT of years (I just realized if my graduating class does a 15 year reunion, it will be next year!WHAT?!?!), and living in the dry sagebrushy desert of southern and central Utah, I miss it, and every time I go home, I am amazed at the little piece of heaven that lies between those mountains!
While there, I got to take pictures of my niece, Liz.  She is turning 8 in a couple of weeks, and needed some portraits taken in her baptism dress.  Her extremely talented mom (with some help from our mom) sewed it.  (if you want to learn more about baptism and the LDS faith, click here)


Her big dream was to have a picture recreating the "Three White Dresses" poem (blessing dress, baptism dress, and wedding/temple dress).  This is what we came up with.  I love it!













It is so great to be eight!
