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!?

The last time I took pictures of Madison – she was just a little girl!!

Now she’s having her OWN little girl!!

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE spending an hour with you – but sometimes a mini session is EXACTLY what you need!!

GORGEOUS!!

Madison & James – thank you SO much for asking me to capture this BEAUTIFUL time in your lives!!

It’s a VERY good thing we did their maternity session when we did!! These photos were taken on a Sunday & their baby girl was born Tuesday!

She was about a month early!! She is doing wonderfully in the arms of her mom & dad!

SISTERS

FIFTEEN YEARS! I’ve been taking their pictures for almost 15 years!!

She was 6 months old when I met her mom. HOW!?

Aren’t they BEAUTIFUL!?

We always need a shot of the twins! They were the first babies that Jared held!!

I quit my job with Amy almost 11 years ago to pursue this full-time. Those girls were my test subjects more times than I can count!

I stopped into the office recently to drop something off and saw the photos of the girls all over Amy’s office walls. Photos that I took – years ago.

THANK YOU SO MUCH AMY!!!

 

WAITING ON BABY

Kellie messaged me about a mini maternity session – and as much as I LOVE full sessions with you – I totally understand the want for a mini session!

We met a little later on a Saturday morning and caught some shots while their baby boy is still on the inside!!

BIG SISTER!!

The sweetest moment!!

BEAUTIFUL!!

Kellie & Jason – thanks for meeting up with me! I can’t WAIT to see that sweet little brother!!

GRACE UPON GRACE

When I met Missy for her little guy’s 6 month photos – she told me she needed to recreate a photo that she had of her older son when he was little.

And we promptly forgot during the session. So we planned a playdate and I took the shot.

Fast forward 7 years – neither of us remembered to do one at Grace’s session – until her mom mentioned it!

BUT – now that Missy is more family than new friend – it wasn’t a problem.

She stopped by one morning and we got the shot – plus a few more!!

Also – she crawls now. She just woke up and started crawling one day – and she won’t stop moving!!

THAT’S THE SHOT!!

Or even that one!!

LOOK AT THAT SMILE!!

Isn’t she just LOVELY!!!
