    I love all of these personality-capturing photos!  She’s my little sweetheart, too.ReplyCancel

Why I started my photography business

I held my breath as the ultrasound wand glided over my belly. Waiting to hear those three words. My third pregnancy, I had two boys already. Each time I had wanted to hear the words “it’s a girl!” but those sweet boys were meant to come into our family first. I waited, hoping so hard…

Location scouting with the family

On a whim we decided to go location scouting as a family last night. I didn’t have anything specific in mind but when I saw this spot I had to pull over. It was just a little spot on the side of a dirt road, with cars passing by on one side and barbed wire…

Me! I do.

A few months ago my mom told me about this great book program for kids. It’s called Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, and from birth to 5 years, your child gets a new book in the mail each month! And it’s totally free to sign up. It’s been so fun to get new books every month…

Sisters

These two are the best of friends. They play together, giggle together, take bubble baths together. I hope they always get along so well 🙂

New Year, New Word

Instead of making resolutions, this year my family is choosing a word to be our theme for the year. I am a fan of making goals throughout the year, and continuously working on things, and I like the idea of having one theme to tie it all into. This word really encompasses just about everything,…

Dear baby: Week 38

Dear baby, Some days it feels like I’ll be pregnant forever, but here we are, so close to the end. You still don’t have a name. It’s never been this difficult to choose before- I always knew early on what name I wanted for your brothers and sister. I’m sure we’ll figure it out- we…

Duck pond!

A client and friend requested this location for her family pics, so I took my family there to check it out. There were lots of ducks and geese, and the kids loved it! The boys tried to feed them, then chase them, and Audra wouldn’t get down for fear of stepping on the little presents…

Dear baby: Week 26

Dear baby, I got to see you again this week. You’ve been a little more trouble than your brothers and sister, which means more doctor visits and more ultrasounds. But you’re healthy, and that’s all that matters. You’re in a breach position, but they say you have plenty of time to turn around. I’d really…

Dear baby: week 25

Baby girl, We still don’t have a name for you. Nothing we’ve thought of so far feels right. With only about 3 months left, I’m hoping we find something soon. You’ve been kicking a lot more lately. This morning I watched my belly changing shape as you kicked and kicked. It makes me smile every…
