Guess What You Big Donkeys?

At church today I found out that this lady in my ward used to be a photographer professionally and she asked me in the hallway if I wanted her 3 backdrops. BIG ones, as in huge. Like...25'x50'. HUGE. I could photograph the entire Desert Chorale spinning around in tutus on those things. SWEET! That saves my butt about $2000. TIGHT!

Anyway, look at this family I shot this weekend, they're super gorgeous and so fun. The dark haired boy is going on a mission in 2 weeks to Brazil (and Tiffany is supposed to go out with him the second he gets home!) and the girl with the blonde hair is Chelsea. She was just Homecoming Queen this year at Yucaipa HS. She's so cute and I love that girl. She and Tiff have fun together, and Tiff's sad because when Chels graduates next summer, she'll be out of laurels. :( The boy with the longer hair is Cody and Mackenzie think's he a hottie, but he's like 17, and then the youngest girl is Linda, and she has a big fat crush on Jonah. I love this family. Anyway. Here, see some more pics. (if they look a bit fuzzy on the blog, it's because they're HUGE in real life, so click on any picture you want to see in it's true state.)

Merry Christmas! Look how the Lord blesses you!!! What a great gift from that woman. Does she shoot anymore? I would be her best friend if I were you. Get all the pointers and WHATEVER she will give you!
Beautiful family. So, it looks like all your children are already betrothed!

Alli Fantastico said...

Yes, what a blessing huh! Anyway yes, I'm all about pre-arranged marriage ;)

Oh and no, that lady doesn't shoot anymore, plus she was more of a studio photographer. She's like 70 now, but she's a spitfire!

-KJ said...

looks like you are following in her tracks...spitfire! That's how I like them!

The Parrish Family said...

LUCKY!!!! Man that is too awesome! Great shots!

shauna said...

The only person who could "arrange" a marriage for her children is Susan...ala KJ and Kevin!! Mine never would allow it.

shauna said...

BTW...Beautiful shots of that family. How are the foot and Stones?

Alli Fantastico said...

Thanks Tiff! Wanna share? ;)

KJ - Takes one to know one right? (that's a compliment...we get it from our mothers I say)

Mom, I know. You tried with Liza several times and aren't you glad that didn't work out? Heehee. Oh and the stones are still here but foot is just barely sore. Hooray for old Keflex in the cabinet!

Dani said...

Scoooooooooooore *said like the soccer announcer guys* for you on the backdrops! I love the pictures - you've found a niche for sure. Sorry about your toe injury (ouch) and hope the rolling stones roll on by! ;)

shauna said...

I almost made a joke about the "rolling stones" and Mick Jabber for your foot, but Dani beat me to it.

Ba dum ching!

Carla said...

SCORE! Big Time! That's awesome- YA for Alli! Hey, I was gonna write you but lost the paper I wrote your email on. My mind has been lost for a while now and I can't remember if yours or Mike's name comes first! AAHHHH! Plus, I can't remember which post you put it on... Ü Anyways, hoping you are having a great December...looks like you are busy taking beautiful photos- you are so dang talented. I'm thinking next time you come to Vegas, you might have to shoot some of my clan! Love ya lots...

Alli Fantastico said...

hey you need to call me NOW. Oh and I think you just came up with the next Christensen Family Photo shoot ...Susan can make the tutu's.

-KJ said...

You are going to shoot your aunt? Which one? Why? What did they do to you? Really Alli, shooting someone isn't the way to solve anything.

Lisa Mc said...

I didn't know you did photography!!
Your pictures are really good. Call me when you come to town.

Alli Fantastico said...

Oh yes Liza, that Christensen idea is excellent. Tell Susan to get on it.

KJ, Kathy. She has it comin'.

Lisa Mc! Yes I do, and thanks! I will call you when we come to Vegas!

Amber Horspool said...

CUTE! You're awesome!!! I bet Chelsea is so glad she did her pictures with you!!! Austin and Tiff would make a cute couple... She should write him!

Carla said...
