About Me

Hi! I'm Alicia, wife and mother of 4 great kids.  I love creating images that are "worth a thousand words" whether it's in the candid moment, or posed portrait.  I hope you enjoy what you see here, because I love sharing it with all of you!

Thanks for stopping by to see what I've captured recently!  To me a picture really is worth a thousand words, although sometimes, there are no words to express how an image might make you feel! I LOVE photography and preserving memories to last a lifetime. 


Just "Hangin'" Out

After I finished mowing the lawn this morning, I sat down in the shade of our trees to cool off.  The kids were in the tree so I snapped some fun pictures.  I practiced getting proper exposure with effective back lighting.  They love this tree and spend a lot of time up there.  If you ever walk past our house, and hear someone calling out to you - be sure to look up!



"Get your Snacks!"

Okay, here it is - the first official "Cerva's Snack Shack".  I just couldn't bring myself to take them to the pool for the fifth day in a row, so we had to find something else to do.   In hindsight, maybe the pool wasn't such a bad idea after all.    O'well, they had a blast  and spent good quality time together ('cause they don't get enough of that already).


















They sold lemonade, licorice ropes, fun dips, blow pops, and an assorted mix of candy.

















You may notice Canyon eating the candy.  He wanted nothing to do with selling it, so he put no money towards buying it in the beginning.  However, as soon as the "shack" opened, he was the first to start buying.

















Now, tell me this doesn't make you want some strawberry lemonade!



"It's not there"

After 5 LONG days of wiggling a loose tooth, it finally fell out this morning.  She has cried a thousand tears this week, thanks to a few yanks from her dad, the fact that she was "scared" to loose her tooth, and she hasn't been able to bite down on anything.  But this morning, her smile couldn't have been bigger!  Here are a few of my favorite quotes: "I keep trying to wiggle it but it's not there!"  "Maybe I'll get ten dollars!" "I'm excited to have money, money, money!" "I don't want to go any where today - I look like a DORK with a missing tooth!" "It's a bigger hole than I thought it would be - I
can stick my whole tongue through it!"  What a kid!                                                                                          _DSC0001.jpg_DSC0001%201.jpg




Megan LOVES flowers.  She is constantly pointing them out to me every where we go, reminding me of the simple beauties all around that I simply take for granted.

Fun in a 5 gallon bucket!

Every year we buy a cute fun blow up pool, and ever year it pops after the first time we use it!  But hey, who needs a pool when you have a 5 gallon bucket!  Don't look too close at the middle bucket in the 3rd picture.  It looks like we are breaking some serious safety rules!  But hey, I was there the whole time.  I'm sure they don't do this when I'm in the house!!
