Family Session | Las Vegas Photographer

Lissables Photography | Las Vegas Photographer

Last January I embarked on a new journey, professional photography. You see if you know me in any way, you know my camera has been attached to my hand since 2007. It’s been my greatest passion and I feel that I have grown as a photographer in those 6 years. Back to the story, my first client of Lissables | Photography was under 10 pounds. Little Brynlee was just 4 weeks old, and although that’s above the average newborn photography stage, she was a perfect little model. I was hooked. It’s been one year to that date, and to commemorate it her family booked another session for all the siblings. Focusing on little Brynlee of course!

Happy 50TH Birthday Mom!

Mom's Birthday

These are the day’s that are especially hard to live 1,300 miles away from my family. If I was home I would have given you 50 hugs and Sawyer would have given you 50 kisses! But life is not always perfect and I can do all that in just one week! We are so excited to be joining my Mom in BC, she rented a cabin for a month to celebrate 50 amazing years. And each week she gets a new special visitor! So I, the worst flyer in the world, agreed to take my 1 1/2 year old on a plane by myself! I must love you a lot Mom!

Mom's Birthday

For those of you who don’t know my Mom, let me tell you about an amazing woman. She was born in Denmark, on her parent’s farm. Where they happily lived for the first 4 years of her life. But my Grandparent’s decided the move their entire family to a new country, Canada. So they jumped on a plane to start a whole new adventure, in a country they didn’t know, and a language they didn’t speak. She overcame such a big life change so early in life that she knew she was destined for great things. She pursued her passion early in life and was assisting by 16. She met the man of her dreams a year later but wouldn’t let him know that for another 3 years. She traveled on her own back to Denmark, and again to Australia. {Reading her diaries she kept from those trips inspired me to travel on my own before getting married!} When she came back she realized she still loved that surprisingly shy guy. He proposed in the rain in 1982 and a year later in all 80’s fashion, they were married.

Moms birthday

Four year’s later THE GREATEST GIFT EVER WAS BLESSED TO THEM! I was born, followed shortly by a a slightly less {love you too kimmy} greatest gift, my little sister. There was year’s of struggling and and pursuing her dream even further. Soon she had worked hard enough to open her own Salon. Before long they were expanding to a bigger location. She is one of the most amazing business woman I know. Her staff is extremely lucky to have such an amazing boss. She worked so hard and all to give us the perfect life. We didn’t have everything but because of their hard work we had a beautiful house and took amazing trips as a family. She was diagnosed with melanoma early in life. An extremely scary life threatening skin cancer. {this is why I lecture everyone I know about staying safe with sun and skin care.} I was too young to realize at the time how fearful the future was for her. But like everything else in life, she took it on whole heartedly and went into remission. I often still think about how differently things could have gone, and how much I know she mean’s to me. She inspired my love of both scrapbooking and photography. She makes me smile every time we are together. One of the biggest things she has given me, is continuing to visit me a country away, whenever I need it. She has just started the new adventure of being a Grandma, and like everything else in her life, she excel’s in it. I love to watch both her and Sawyer light up when they are around each other.


Mom's birthday

 My mother has truly lead an exceptional life. And today we are all celebrating those 50 special years. It’s amazing to see how many other people also love my Mother. But of course I love her the most! Happy Birthday Mom, you are the most amazing woman I know. I treasure every minute we are together. Can’t wait to see you in less than a week! I love you. 

Mom's Birthday

I had to add one good old picture! Happy 50th Birthday Mom.

Princess Ariel Cake

Princess Ariel Doll Cake |

I have to confess, I LOVE making princess cakes. Not just love, Love Love. So I jumped at the chance to make one of the sweetest little princesses I know, her own princess cake. Bonus for it being Ariel, a cake I have been dying to make but couldn’t justify as a casual for myself cake.

She was definitely one of my favorites growing up. {Especially since my very thoughtful mom edited out the part where Ursula grows out of the ocean and ruins everything. Nope I had a much happier version of The Little Mermaid.} She held a special kind of magic the other princesses didn’t have. Which is why I felt so terrible ripping off her so preciously acquired legs…But some things just have to be done in the name of great cakes.

The Mom wanted some rings for the kids in the cupcakes and actually came up with the idea for the Sebastian cupcakes. I love them so much that I am going to run with the idea on many other theme’s! {they can be found at party city or online.}

I’m so happy with the way this one turned out!

Happy Birthday Auntie Kimmy

Sister Birthday |

Well it may not be like the good old days where I could surprise you with a locker full of balloons, {And you thought no one cared about you that morning!} It gets harder each year that we are apart to come up with creative birthday wishes. I have to say my second favorite was putting a package in the mail to tell you about becoming an auntie! It was in the mail on your Birthday and delivered for Valentines day. Excellent timing if I do say so myself! Your a wonderful Auntie and I know Sawyer and the future twinkles in our eye’s will come to treasure that relationship. I mean who else would do anything to get a smile out of a stubborn little boy? I love you for that, hate me for posting this…

Sister Birthday |


This year I was even able to save on the postage and send your present home with mom. But I wish I could deliver it in person. I hope you enjoyed it! I had fun picking out things for you and your newly made life. A little necklace with two little birds. You can choose to imagine them as you and I, or how I did when I first saw it, Momma and Brax. All you need is each other. And I hope this new year for you has shown you how strong you are and what an unbelievable thing it is to love a new baby. I see you with him and I know with every inch of my heart that you will be the best mom he could ever have. {Though I think Sawyer would argue with you on that one, but let’s face it we all can’t be as amazing as his mom, wink wink}

Sister Birthday |

I hope you had a wonderful and surprising evening surrounded by all the best people in your life! {Again, except the most important, moi} I cant wait to make more memories with you this year. I feel that we have been able to come a long way in the last year and it is something not everyone could have done. Whether on our trips we have planned, or by distance, I know each day we become more like friends again, and of course sister’s when you steal my shirt or so on! I mean come on, it’s so easy to argue with you, because your ALWAYS wrong!
