Now I've tasted chocolate, and I'm never going back!

A week ago today, we went and had Asher's pictures taken by my friend Allie (who by the way, I went to kindergarten with!) at Gardener Village in Sandy. We also had a couple family ones done, and they ALL turned out SOOOOO great. I don't think I will ever be able to go back to JcPenney portraits again. I was so unhappy with his 10 month pics, that I could never bring myself to go back, even though they are so cheap. So here we are , Asher is 14 1/2 months, and he finally has new pictures. Oh well, they are so great, that they make up for the huge gap in between. Here is the link for those of you who feel like looking at all of them.

I also just have to do a little PR work for Allie. She basically started doing photography because she was quite displeased with the cheapy studio places (like JcPenny) and so she decided she wanted to give it a try. She invested in an amazing camera, hopped on the internet, learned all she could, and practiced practiced practiced! I love her work! It is so creative, and the quality is amazing. She basically just came and hung out with us for an hour or so, and just let Asher do his thing (which is great, because the few times we tried to make him do something or go somewhere, he flipped his lid...Mr Independent!) Both her blog and her website have awesome examples of her work, most of which are of her adorable daughter. Thanks again Allie!

I haven't got the disc of pictures yet, so these are just the ones Allie posted on her blog, but I will post our favorites when we get it.

Hi guys! I found you through Sarah and Mike. They are neighbors of my brother and sister-in-law. What a small world! How are you? I love your pictures. He is adorable! I am so excited that you have a blog and I can see what you have been up to. What did the world do before blogs? Hope you guys are well.

Morgan, those turned out AWESOME! Your friend did a great job. I love how all the shots look so natural-- rather than stilted, stiff portraits.

Hey guys!!! Asher is huge! He is getting so old! We feel like we are missing the best parts of his life. Congrats on a newbee! You guys are WAY ahead of us. We have a lot of catching up to do. So I see that we need to guess the sex. A friend told us to guess hermaphrodite so that we would only be half wrong no matter what, but I don't we will do that. My guess is a girl because Asher would be such a good older brother!
