The beginnings of the shoot.

Ok, so I was super, incredibly majorly excited to have The Famous Melissa Fullmer take mine and Kam's pictures in Dallas. Um, not only are they freaking amazing...but it was freaking fun...especially for being in the 90's, super super humid and in the ghetto. We had a ton of fun. I felt bad for her because Kam and I are super not photogenic...we suck at smiling and suck at not making weird faces. I'll post some of the non doofy ones she took later, but for now...let me share with you a story:
Once there was a photographer named Melissa, and she told this old lady to stand under this cute shaded, old old run down building....so she did...and she was starting to pose when Melissa said, "wait, I need to change my card"...so Kristal stood...and waited......then she felt something, as if the old building were leaking. She looked at her shoulder and hair and wondered what it was...so she looked up and saw the world's biggest pigeon. yup......
And no trip to Deep Ellum would be complete with out a taco stand stop......
I'm thinking that a bunch of us should get family pictures taken by melissa in Az next Spring so she'll come out and do them. She's amazing...click on her name on my sidebar to look at more of her stuff. She's de best!

So next year you're making the 35 hours road trip out to see your favorite sister, right? Becuz way not fair to have that much fun with a friend and not a sister. I don't have the amazing photography skills of Melissa, but I'll take you you Melting Pot!

oooh, um, yea, about that...can I fly? Wait wait, I might be pregnant ;) But yes, the melting pot will do...and maybe we could fly melissa out to take pictures of us and our many many children. she's a blast.
But sister, we really do need to plan a little girl's weekend, we can meet up wherever. I'm excited for aspen grove, and glad you're coming...but next year, let's do utah sans kids!!!!
