If you follow me on FACEBOOK – you should know that we have a pretty awesome inner circle of people in our lives.

Sometimes I forget that Sierra & Jose are quite a bit younger than us!

In early November – Jose turned 30!! Sierra will turn 30 a couple of months after I turn 40!

ANYWAY – we gathered at their house with their people to celebrate!!

The night before the party – we got together for what was supposed to be friend-family photos around the fire pit – BUT – it was COLD & windy – so we just hung out in the kitchen eating dinner instead!

Fitzy is three weeks older than that guy in the red and about 2 years younger than the guy in the black! He considers Aaron his best friend!

Enoch & Aiden on the trampoline Friday night!!

I LOVE that our guys have each other to grow up with!!

OH MY HEART!!! THAT SWEET GIRL!!

It’s not a birthday party without some guns – right!?

That was a test shot – but LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND!!

I’m told it’s a rare thing to find people like this. It might be. I do know this – at the risk of sounding ridiculous – we are blessed!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

Jose’s little sister came to celebrate with everyone!!

GORGEOUS!!

THIS!! These people – this moment. We’ve all got stories & some of them are unbelievable. I have one word to explain why all these people are here in this picture – together.

GRACE. Meeting Jesus completely transformed Cody’s life. It’s not my story to tell – but I do think he’ll be sharing it sooner rather than later – because it’s amazing.

Watching him live his life & living this life with them – it makes me cry!

THANKS!!

Before we called it a night – we are those early bedtime friends – I had to grab a few silhouette shots from their back porch – BECAUSE – look at that!!!

PERFECTION!!!

Jose – HAPPY BIRTHDAY – here’s hoping this is the BEST YEAR YET!! WE LOVE YOU!!!

MOTHER & DAUGHTER

I tried to take a few photos of Ericka & her girls when we did their silhouette session – but her littlest was NOT having it!

Ericka spent the weekend with my sister at my parents – and they wanted an awkward family photo!!

On Sunday – we tried for some shots of Ericka & her girls – but that little thing was STILL not happy about it!!

TEN!! SHE IS TEN!!!

SUCH A SAD LITTLE FACE!!

THERE’S A SMILE!!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

ERICKA – you are AWESOME & STRONG. I LOVE YOU!!!!

Mara got her turn with Grace too!

GAH!!! THAT HANDSOME HUBBY & THAT GORGEOUS BABY GIRL!!

We went looking for caterpillars but didn’t find any – Aiden wanted a picture in the field!

THIS MADE ME LAUGH SO HARD!!!

Aiden & Enoch wanted to take pictures of ME!!

THAT SWEET FACE!!!

I ran inside to grab that sweet girl – because I NEEDED some photos of her in the flowers!!

MY FAVORITE SHOTS!!!

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!

Enoch needed a turn with Grace too!!

Did you know that I wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic and NEVER photograph people – unless they were in those remote places that Nat Geo sent me to!?

NOW – ALL I do is photograph people. Babies. Toddlers. Kiddos. Families. Seniors. Engagements. Weddings. And then it starts all over again!!

AND I WOULDN’T CHANGE ONE THING!!!!
