Alissa’s Harry Potter Birthday!

For those who know and love Alissa, summer just wouldn’t be the same without her birthday party! Every year is a different theme, and every year the party seems to get bigger and better! This year was no exception, with a Harry Potter theme! Everyone dressed up as different characters….wizards, witches, professors, dementors, a house elf, owls and muggles! Step through Platform 9 3/4, and into the mystical world of magic! Upon entering, everyone is sorted into their proper Houses, and greeted with cold butter beer and treats to eat. Grab a quill and your copy of The Marauder’s Map to cross off hidden Harry Potter treasures as you look for them on your scavenger hunt! But keep your guard up! There are all sorts of dangerous creatures! From dragons, to spiders, and even giants!

School is also in session at the party. Grab your books and visit each class to complete every assignment given. Mix concoctions at your Potions class, learn to “transform” with temporary tattoos, study the mandrakes in Herbology, and don’t forget to stop by for a quick lesson on Quidditch!

Finish off the night with a ride in the Weasley family car around the Whomping Willow, and a Harry Potter cookie!

**Warning: there are A LOT of photos! I couldn’t narrow them down! Enjoy!

Ven’s Baptism

Not too long ago I had the pleasure of documenting¬†the Baptism of my handsome nephew Steven. Being raised in an LDS household, I’ve never had the opportunity to witness an infant baptism. I have to say, it was very beautiful! I was touched by the love that was felt for this sweet boy by everyone who was there to witness such a special moment. Ven is lucky to be surrounded by so many who love him! And I am definitely a lucky aunt!

HELLO!

Welcome to my blog!! I am so excited to jump back into my photography again! Previously I was known as RaeAnne Photography, but took a break due to illness. Now that I’m ready to greet life again, I felt I needed a fresh start, so hello from Number 13 Studios! I have big plans and dreams for this brand, and I hope you continue to follow me on my creative journey!

For now, a little bit of spring. This little fella is “nesting” in the roof of my carport. He’s a welcome friend every morning.
