Lil’ Luna Link Party 103

This week’s Link Party is brought to you by:

Jaclyn Olmstead Photography

I was ecstatic that Jackie was willing to do our family pictures this year. She has been doing photography for years but has just recently started to do more and grow her clientele. Not only is she super affordable but she does great work!! Check out the photos she did of this from last week:

{The fam – and yes, I LOVE this couch Jackie brought!!}

{Love this one of the kiddos!}

{Evie – Gav – Lily}

{Love this pic and the hubby and I. Dang, he’s hot!! 😉 }

Oh, and….


Yep, it’s true!! I’m 14 weeks along and we couldn’t be more excited! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been slacking in emails and other things, this is why. I’ve been super sick but know it’s all worth it. We want a big family and I ain’t getting any younger, so we’re very happy about this. 🙂

But…. we’ll have several months to talk about this, so let’s get back to the pictures…

Here are some more AH-MAZING pics from Jackie…

{Love this pic of my best friend’s family!!}

A note from the Photographer:

Hi, I’m Jaclyn! A full-time stay at home mommy and part-time photographer. My most frequent clients are definitely my two kids. If they could talk, I know they would tell you how I am constantly taking pictures of them! One day they will appreciate it 🙂:). I have been taking pictures for family and friends for sometime, and finally decided to turn this love and hobby into a little business! I believe that everyone deserves to have beautiful pictures that are also affordable! I can’t wait to capture your lovely memories for you to share and cherish!


Well, Jackie is awesome and will be giving away


to one lucky Lil’ Luna winner!!

That includes a 1 hour on location family photo shoot as well as a disc of up to 30 edited images.


But that’s not all – this isn’t only open to AZ East Valley readers. Anyone can enter to win and if you’re out of state you can gift this giveaway to any friends or family you have in the Phoenix Area. Call it an early Christmas Present!! 😉
