the best moisturizer I have ever used.
this stuff is phenomenal.
And, I'm so excited that the new JC Penney's has a Sephora, and they carry Philosophy products! This moisturizer is $25, and worth every penny. Here is the info from the website
clear makeup skin perfector for day and night
look like you have perfect skin, even if you don't with the present.
the present allows you to play beautifully during the day as a colorless skin perfector that camouflages fine lines and wrinkles as well as pores and gives the skin a flawless airbrushed appearance.
the present also allows you to sleep beautifully in the evening as its unique formula helps seal in your treatment products and moisturizers, provides natural antibacterial benefits all while providing a beautiful, natural airbrushed finish.
the present clear makeup is a must-have item in the philosophy lineup.
Go try it, and thank me later. Smooches!

**Michelle, I love your phrase so much, I just had to use it here. I couldn't help myself. I've been lol everytime I think to say it but stop myself.**
I had THE BEST visit with my best friend and her family over the holidays. They were here from Idaho for two weeks (we won't talk about why their trip was extended for a few days), and I was overjoyed to see them and get to know my little nieces better. Last time I saw the girls was when I flew to Texas for Kennan's christening. She was only 6 weeks old and had an awful case of acid reflux. She was not a happy camper. Boy have things changed!!! I felt like I really got to know her and bond with her, and I miss her incredibly.
Where's Aunt Sammy???
I'm right here saving all of my bubbles and chuga-chuga choo-choo's for you. I love you so much little lady! I can't wait to see you again!!
Jackie, I love you and miss you. Your family is so beautiful and perfect. I am so grateful for the time we got to spend together. I wish you didn't live so far away. I know 30 years could pass, and it would still be just like we saw each other yesterday....me in my yellow tube socks and you with your lipstick that actually looked better on me. (lol, remember when Carol actually said that? Oh well, she got me back with the eyebrow comment. hehehehe) I know it won't be that long before I finally come to see you in Idaho, and I can't wait to see your life there. Give the girls tons of hugs and smooches for me. You can give Kevin a hug, too. ;)
Tons of love to you.
I think I was at their home close to 5 hours, and Mom and Dad couldn't have been cooler. Thank you guys for understanding!!! As it is with newborns, you don't know if the session will be done in 40 minutes, or if it's a game of waiting out the cries, feedings, and changings (or, more often with the naked shots - clean ups). Logan settled down just long enough to get some of my favorite newborn shots to date!! It was so worth the wait, and I hope you both love these as much as I do!! Thank you for welcoming me into your home. Congratulations on your gorgeous baby boy!
I'm also introducing a new line of collages and wall art. Below are two examples.

I have so much to be thankful for, and I feel very blessed and excited heading into the new year. It's fun for me to think how many things will be different at the beginning of next year. I often look back at the past year, and I just marvel at the way things have changed. Life never ceases to amaze me. :) While I of course can't predict what exactly this year will bring, I do know that there will be a lot of changes coming up for my business. I'm so excited to soon unveil a new face to Samantha Uphold Photography. Nothing is completely worked out yet, and I'm still contemplating some of the details. Stay tuned for all of the new changes!! Also, I'll be holding a few contests in the near future, so be on the look out for those!
This past year has been so wonderful. Thank you to all of you that have made my first season in business a success!! I couldn't have done it without all of your support and encouragement. Much love to you all!
