Pudge's first haircut. Normally we leave this to the professionals, but given how stringy and uneven everyone's hair was looking, mama went for it. (thanks for the pep talk Britt) This girl has had a full head of hair since the minute she was born, it was a sad moment to trim up the curls at 15 months, but it was necessary. The first haircut always is a milestone for parents, for no real apparent reason other than your baby is growing up.
Happiest of days to all the dad's out there. Thanks for hanging the sun moon and stars for us and the kids. Cheers to the fathers that pull their weight, ask the questions, hold the baby, hold the mamas, hold the hearts and the tears and read the stories and do the bedtimes and wash the dishes and clean up the kitchen. Here's to the dads that chose to be involved because our children deserve it. cheers to you.
You taught me that kids are meant to play and be loud and be messy and that they can't hurt nothin when they would run wildly by all the expensive looking things in a home. You taught me that the moments and the laughter and the togetherness matters more than just about anything. You made sure memories were made and everyone felt welcome. You taught my kids silliness and giggles and adventure and wonder, you treated my kids like they were a piece of your family - those things I'll never forget. Your smile was big, your soul was full, and there's not a single person you encountered that could call you a stranger. You loved like no one I've ever known and it's no wonder why your family is filled with such amazing people, they were guided by you. Thank you for letting me into your home and your family, you have forever anchored yourself to a piece of my heart...there may never be a time that this will hurt any less, but I look forward to the day that it does.
How wonderful it is to share life with someone who is both your safe place and your greatest adventure...Siblings.
The last moments before getting into the car, butterfly filled stomach, knowing you're on your way to meet your baby...I think Belly birth day sessions are going to be my new thing.

I’ve had the honor and pleasure of photographing a lot of really cool things in my 10 years of business… but what tops any photograph I’ve ever taken are the memories of these women right here, some of my best friends swimming in the pool of motherhood right alongside me. On days where the waves crash against the rocks a little too hard and you need them to hug you and bring you a bloody Mary while you cry, to the days where our kids hit milestones and we are able to rejoice together while celebrating one another, these are my people. •This is motherhood• Happy day to the wonderful women that ride this wave with me, I hope you feel the love today 🖤
