Seeing these pretty little blossoms pop up all over town is getting me so terribly excited for Spring. It’s a season I welcome with open arms and such a renewing of my spirit. I want to spring clean and organize everything with open windows and citrus oils diffusing so basically my idea of therapy. AND I’ve got a whole gaggle of spring weddings this year which is getting me all kinds of excited! HELLO & WELCOME SPRING, I’VE MISSED YOU SO! 🌿
This past weekend + this upcoming weekend = MY FAVE of all faves because all I do is photograph mamas of all walks of life. This part of my job is the most rewarding because surely the day to day isn’t easy nor beautiful yet the photographs we make are. Our job never ends from wiping up spilled oatmeal and chauffeuring the tiny humans all over creation to the morning sickness and pea sized bladder that comes with growing those above mentioned humans but having dreamy pictures of you with the ones you love most is the greatest treasure. To revel at the sweet memories that line your hallways as you’re on your way to do the umpteenth load of laundry today - those photographs of you with your littles bring all the joy & gratefulness to the surface. Show them that you were there too. 💕
Oh HELLO. *Cue infamous Eminem song that all the millenials use in this scenario* Long time, no post. Sometimes I need a little break from the social media hustle...I make up the rules for my IG right?! But don't let these words distract you from this darling picture of baby hand dimples cause BABY HAND DIMPLES! I'm luring you in with delicious baby dimples to tell you that there are a handful of Motherhood Mini spots left! The first set is coming up this weekend and mama you NEED to get in front of the camera with your babies - I promise you’ll never regret it. 💕
Today I’m another year older and ecstatic about it. You see, in a world where getting older isn’t ideal, I feel blessed to have the opportunity to continue growing in so many ways and experience all the beauty that God has in store for me. While I may have more grey hairs (those pesky intruders won’t quit!) and less collagen then March 6, 2018 - I’m even richer in love, experiences and accomplishments from another trip around the sun. I made a promise to myself years ago that I’ll always welcome birthdays with open arms and a grateful heart (+ always share my real age!) because not only have I lived so much life these last 26 years, each year special and important no matter the events, but I have the rest of my days with my favorite humans to look forward to and that my friends, makes getting older so special to me. Happy birthday to the girl in mirror - I love you more everyday. You’re special and beautiful and worthy of all that your precious life has to offer 💕 Here’s to year 27!
Soaking up the sweet (sometimes dreadful...) days of winter. Not a huge fan of this season around here but the occasional snow day gives me so much joy and childlike wonder. Snowed in fun with these 3 cutie pies plus their daddy and loving every second...even if we just spent 30 minutes finding everyone’s gear and wrestling it onto them only to have fingers go numb and snow in their boots within 5 minutes. #letsgomakehotchocolate 🤗
This Valentine’s Day may not have been the most romantic one we’ve experienced in the last 11 years - in and out of 4 airplanes with a full day of traveling under our belts - yet I wouldn’t trade one little bit of it. I’m still head over heels for this guy and all that he pours into our lives. MD, I love you, this life we’ve built together & all the life we still have yet to live, hand in hand. You’re my favorite human in the world. Happy Valentine’s Day 💕
My sitter was here today so that means I got all the things done! & it also means batch blogging baby! These cute-sy lovebirds are gracing the blog this fine evening and boy do I love them! It's my ultimate joy when my couples become friends 💕 You know the drill...#linkinbio
Woke up with the strongest urge to be by the ocean today. Could be the -10 wind-chill going on here but it's my fave and I dream about a cozy little place to call home right by it some day. Good thing we’re headed to Mexico in just 10 sleeps! More than ready to have my freshly pedicures toes in the sand & copious amounts of pinã coladas with the best ceviche of your life delivered straight to my chair. Let the countdown to Mexico commence! #tminus10days
I’m discovering the greatest of joys in photographing the simplest of things. ✨
Creating these lovebirds timeline today & I'm all WHY haven't I blogged this yet?! Note to self: don’t hog the lovely stuff!
