What’s this…?

Two blog posts in one day?!?!   That’s just crazy talk!   I know what you’re thinking…”Are all of your clients drop-dead gorgeous, or what??”  And the answer is, “Yes, why yes, they are!”  It just so happens that beautiful (inside and out!) runs in this family – AND their extended family!   These precious ones are cousins to those lil ones I just posted earlier today!   I can honestly say I’ve never met a sweeter, kinder, well-behaved, more respectful bunch of kids…them’s good genes!  

I always look forward to this session every year.  For some reason, these kids inspire me…they are my muses.  Maybe it’s because I have been capturing them since I first started my business.  They’ve been with me and watched me grow as a photographer and throughout that journey, they have always given me their complete trust and confidence in my vision and who I am.  Just puts me to ease and as always, some of my favorite images that I’ve ever taken come from their sessions.

Fall has arrived!

Ah, yes…it’s that time of year again, my friends.  I can tell by the fact that I’ve been sitting in this chair in front of my computer for the past 72 hours straight, taking occasional potty breaks and getting a few winks of sleep in every once in a while.  I’ve also broken my oath to not drink Diet Mt. Dew ever again. { That didn’t last very long, did it??}   Thankfully, I’ve been sick the past few days so there isn’t much more that I could be doing than working.  Don’t judge me, my pajamas are very comfortable.

I will say, however, that the BEST part of this time of year is getting to see my favorite families once again (Yay!) and be amazed at how much the little ones have grown!  They seem to know how to steal my heart away with a single look and make my day brighter with their sweet smiles!  These two little guys are no exception.  They were certainly a workout (maybe even more than the 10 miles I ran that morning!), but I couldn’t help but melt like putty in their hands.  They just keep getting cuter each year and this year they brought their beautiful lil sis along.  She was so calm and sweet…so lucky to have two older brothers to look out for her.  I truly love this family, I cannot say enough wonderful things about them!  It was so hard for me to keep their family pics under raps (so as to not spoil their Christmas card…which ROCKS, by the way!!), but I couldn’t resist – here’s just a few for now.

Where did our summer go?

I cannot deny it…I apologize for the lack of posts and neglect to my blog.  This summer has been filled with science and fine arts camps, playdates and sleepovers, family get togethers, catching up with old friends, swim lessons, early morning runs, weekend getaways, gymnastics classes, countless homecooked meals, daily trips to Blockbuster, and lots of just good, plain fun.  As quick as it started, it seemed to have come to an abrupt halt.

We are going on the 5th day of school now, and slowly but surely life is falling back into a scheduled routine.  Room by room, my house is gradually moving from chaos into some state of order.   Funny how order only returns to my home during the school year when the kids spend 4-5 waking hours here, most of which is spent doing homework, eating, bathing and getting ready for school, gymnastics, and soccer.

I was off most of the summer, but had the privilege of capturing this lil cutie patootie for her 1st birthday!  As difficult as one-year old sessions are (mainly because they will only stay in one spot for a MAX of 5 seconds!), they are totally worth it!   To be able to capture their sweet smiles and cute expressions is priceless!

For those of you that have inquired about Fall sessions, I am considering offering only a very, very, very limited number of sessions in October.  More details to come soon!

Spring has sprung!

I am always fascinated at the start of a new season…the temperature changes, flowers bloom and fade, colors shift all around us.  And certainly, just as the seasons change with time, we seem to undergo growth through our own personal seasons – seasons of joy, seasons of sorrow, seasons of change and opportunities.  It is my prayer for you that you will find your purpose and fulfillment in each season of your life.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.  Ecclesiastes 3:1

I was just at this same park a few weeks ago, not a single leaf on the trees…it’s amazing how quickly life blooms when you’re not noticing.

Thank you, sweet C, for letting me spend some time with your little ones in the midst of a hectic schedule.  Love and blessings to you and yours!
