Danielle emailed me about photographing her family!

She let me know that she was hoping to get a few photos with their dog – their HUGE dog – and their cat – their standoffish cat.

When I walked in the door – I FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR DOG!!

I nearly forgot I was there to take pictures!! AND HIS NAME IS THORIN OAKENSHIELD!!

So then I had to show them my LOTR tattoo and my beet and STAR WARS and parks & rec – and so on!!

We became fast friends!

She was standoffish – but SO photogenic!!

Danielle has my DREAM hair!!! THOSE CURLS!!!

I will admit – it was hard getting only a FEW photos with their pup – because he stole the show!!

SERIOUSLY!! LOOK AT HIM!!!

ALSO – can we talk about Danielle’s GORGEOUS hair again!?

I took WAY TOO MANY (is there really such a thing) photos – so I’ve got LOTS more to show you!

FARM LIFE

My sister came to visit in July – so we all stayed at the farm together!!

I posted a blog recently where Enoch helped my mom make food for Ebony and feed her. Jack hadn’t been able to help yet – so Enoch had to step aside – which was HARD for him.

You know what else is hard!? Navigating boundaries and relationships with your siblings when you all have kids and parent differently!

My sister lives 3 hours away and my brother about 6 – we live about 45 minutes from my parents. We see them quite often.

And when we are all visiting together – I have a hard time. Because I want to see my family and I want my kids to experience their cousins. BUT I also want my niece and nephews to experience G & Pa without my kids there monopolizing ALL the time and attention!!

SO – Enoch had a little bit of a hard time handing it over to Jack – because we are a selfish race!

AND – he ended up doing really well with the sharing! After his initial whining of course.

Jack is 13 months younger than Enoch – but they’re about the same size – the Trout genes are strong!!

THOSE GUYS – Jack only calls him Enochguy and Enoch usually calls him Jackieboy!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!! Makes me laugh every single time!!

That’s Red and her gorgeous little guy – Brownie!!

I hope we have a few more years with Red!!

Jack with his little arm around G – I know that everyone loves their mom – but our mom is AMAZING!!!

THAT FACE!!! Like I said – EVERY CHILD should grow up on a farm!!

That guy – look at how GROWN UP he is looking!!

THAT SHOT – I see teenage Enoch in that face!!

ALSO – if you need a cat – if you want a cat – DO YOU WANT A CAT!? My parents might have a few you could take!!

Do you drop off your pregnant cats at farms – PLEASE don’t.

We are NOT bringing a kitten home – but if we did – it would be that one!!

FARM LIFE

My parents have a small farm – and Enoch LOVES the cows! He has loved them since he was a baby – even though their MOO scared him so much he shook!!

Right now they have a baby girl that needs bottle fed! E was SUPER excited to help make the formula AND feed her!

ALSO – if you want a little kitten – they’ve got LOTS to pick from!!

Her name is Ebony! Her mom kicked her in the head and wanted nothing to do with her – so my parents adopted her!

I rarely take REAL pictures of my kiddos anymore – it’s something that I struggle with – living in the moment or living behind the camera capturing the moment.

I’m so happy I pulled my camera out for THESE moments!!

KEVIN & CARLA

I’ve known Carla for a LONG time – we grew up in church together! This fall will mark their 8th wedding anniversary!!

I haven’t seen them since that day – so I was SO excited to hear that they wanted to bring their pups for a mini session in the creek!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

SWOON!!

LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL GIRL!!

She really did NOT want to get in that water!

Kevin & Carla – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to photograph you and your sweet pups – AND for traveling so far!!

JAKE & AMANDA

My cousin Jake messaged me about some announcements he needed to make – and was hoping I would photograph their happy news!

SURPRISE!!

There was a mistake in ordering the t-shirts – but nothing a sharpie can’t fix!!

A baby – a marriage – a new big brother! SO MUCH EXCITEMENT!!

Jake & Amanda – I am SO happy for you both!!

Can I tell you something about this guy? It was COLD that day – not terribly cold but cold enough!

He never complained. He almost always had that giant smile on his face!!

I asked him to show me his teeth – he wasn’t wrong! I just meant SMILE with your teeth!

BROTHERS!!

Patti – THANK YOU for coming to Mansfield and braving the cold!!

I hope to see you all again soon!!
