I haven’t seen Myrana since she was pregnant with her oldest little guy!

I was so excited when she asked if they could schedule a summer session!!

I LOVE THAT ONE!

She really wanted a picture of the two of them if it worked. IT WORKED!!

Stay tuned for the rest of their sweet session!

I’ve been taking photos for Heather & Melvin for quite some time now!

This year – they came to my FAVORITE creek and explored!

I ADORE those shots!

Stay tuned – this session was a fun one!!

A DAY IN THE LIFE

This guy – he has short legs like his dad. But he REALLY wanted to climb this.

And then he lost his shoe. And I laughed. And I took pictures. And then I helped him up after he got his shoe.

But. I laughed.

Can you find the Enoch guy!?

I noticed birds building a nest on our light. We have LOTS of great nest spots on the back deck. But NOT here. So I put a snake up. But they didn’t care. The tin foil worked!

Boxes from the FOOD PANTRY!! Imagination!!

Enoch’s favorite snack – dry elbow noodles!! I find them EVERYWHERE!

UNO!! SUDOKU!!!

BANDITS!!

We got LOTS of apples at the FOOD PANTRY so we made apple crisp!!

This guy – his mind RACES!! He’s getting stuck & obsessed again. It’s how his anxiety comes out. So we’re all working together.

And I can honestly tell you that the majority of our time together is joyful!

THAT PICTURE – can you HEAR his laugh!? It’s my new favorite!!

What are YOU doing to spend your days!?

Which one will win!?

He looks VERY nervous!

SNAKES!! Thankfully I’m not afraid of snakes – because we’ve run into LOTS of them!

We lost a car – and the boys tried their hardest to find it – BUT I had to stick my hand in that hole and search for it!

MEAT STORAGE!?

Mom – will you hold my hand!? YES SWEET BOY!! Because one day – you won’t ask me!

Throwing cars off the waterfall – finding the small silly things during this crazy time!

Another snake!!

MORE SNAKES!!!

Enoch said – Mom!! This looks like a tiny little honey bee nest. It’s so cute. Can you press it in a book so I can give it to the girl I’ll marry someday!?

And then my friend Ericka told me about Trypophobia!? Have you ever heard of that!?

ONE MORE POST about our day!!

THIS IS US

We spend our summers outside. The past two summers have been spent creek exploring. WE LOVE IT!!

In September – I asked Megan if she would take photos of us in our FAVORITE creek!!

BUT – we grabbed a few shots with the neighbors first!!

The boys brought some LEGOS with them. Because this shale is the PERFECT place for LEGOS!!

I ADORE THAT SHOT!!

That might be my FAVORITE picture of us!!

LOVE IT!!

Those shots – they mean the WORLD to me!!

I LOVE THAT ONE TOO!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH MEGAN!!!! These are my FAVORITE family photos yet!!!

THAT TREE!! It’s my new favorite place!!

OH MY HEART!! THAT SHOT – SO BEAUTIFUL!!

THAT GIANT SMILE!!

These are my FAVORITE sessions!

We had scheduled our session for early October – but alas – the weather said differently!

Thankfully we got a lovely late October evening!!

I love her. Wearing her fancy dress & playing in the rocks!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS – so much happiness!!

*E* thought of this spot all on his own – that kid has an eye!!

Heather – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me back into your lives year after year!!

Amy makes leather jewelry. And I happen to LOVE leather jewelry. And she happened to need some pictures taken!! WIN WIN!!

And these kiddos NEEDED a creek to play in!!

THIS SPOT!!! THAT SWEET BOY!! THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS JOB!!

The rain held off until just about THIS moment – but we were done – it was PERFECTION!!
