Father's Day this year has been one of the most memorable in recent years for our family. One Wednesday, June 17th, my sister Laurie gave birth to a 6lb/4oz little man. He is the first little bundle of joy to grace the presence of my immediate family so you can imagine the amount of happiness that comes with it. My mom and I have spent nearly the entire week with Laurie and her husband Adam as they have begun to adjust to this little life in their home. What a couple of amazing days it has been! My dad was able to make it down yesterday and we have not been able to wipe the smile off of his face since. We are all looking so forward to seeing this little man grown up before our eyes, and could not be any happier for Adam and Laurie and their now family of three.
here's the little man about an hour after he was born...all kinds of awesome

Last week I set out with great friend for the east coast. Our plan was to see as much of the New England states as we could in about 4 full days, and that we did. We landed in Boston at 7am last Thursday morning and hit the ground running. First stop was the beautiful Cape Cod.
Next stop, was the middle of nowhere in NY. It was full of all kinds of awesome. We went white water rafting along the Hudson River. It was the one of the best parts of our trip...one of the best ways to experience nature for sure! I didn't get a ton of pictures here for obvious reasons, but here is the stellar school bus that we rode on to get to the start of our adventure on the river.
Next stop was Mendon, VT, where we stayed on a apple orchard for the night. This place was amazing!
For those of you who don't know her, meet Reena. Along with being one of the absolute travel friends you could ever ask for, she is just downright one of the most incredible human beings on the planet. She is kind, wise, loyal, honest and amongst many other things loves to laugh out loud quite often! Anyway, snapped a few of her in the orchard.
We took off from there and headed for New Hampshire, driving through the White Mountains. We stopped off for a hike, which proved to be nothing short of breathtaking.
To finish up our trip, we headed back for Boston. We took a bit of the long way and drove through the southern part of Maine on the way.
I loved the fisherman on his boat at sea.
Boston, MA. This city is quickly becoming on of my favorite that this country has to offer.

Three weeks from today, Josiah and Erica will be wed! A few weeks a ago we headed over to USD for a little engagement session. Josiah is studying law there, so the location was special to them! These two are easy on the eyes to say the least and a lot of fun to work with. I have very much enjoyed their friendship and absolutely cannot wait for their wedding. It is going to be one beautiful occasion and I know they will shine in front of the camera! Congratulations you two. You guys are amazing!

I met Eric and Adj in college at Cal Poly. No need to mention how many years ago that was! I actually spent an entire year sharing the same room with Adj in a house with 6 roommates. Our room was predominantly purple (not my choice) with several N Sync posters (ok, so that might have been my choice!). Needless to say it was a great year. We all became very close friends and to this day remain that way.
Eric and Adj have been married for a couple years now and I was so excited to hear a while back that they were expecting their first child! Yesterday, Cianna Nichole Dean was born at 5:49pm, 6lbs/13oz/17.5 inches. I was able to get to the hospital to meet this beautiful baby girl, and that she was. Adj is doing great, I had so much fun spending some time with the three of them today. For those of you who know Eric, he is the proud papa that you could imagine he would be.
Seeing these little humans reminds you of the miracle that happens when a child is born, and how precious and special their souls are. I know that Eric and Adj will provide an amazing and loving home for Cianna to grow up in. As an honorary aunt, I will certainly love to spoil her when I can!
So, without further ado, here are some photos of the gorgeous Cianna. Congrats Eric & Adj. She is a beauty!
She has got a head of dark dark hair going on. In my book, that makes her awesome!
She decided to open her eyes (and her mouth) for the camera!
She loves her mommy!
Her precious little feet.
Her first head shots. Never too early to start a portfolio!
