    because this too shall pass.

    First off, thanks for taking a minute to take a peek at something I love to do. Here is where I try my hardest to capture special times in people’s lives. Days pass by quickly and its important to remember the days of new love, little smiles, and old hands. I’m a wife and a mom and I’m not perfect. I know days don’t go perfectly and kids don’t always cooperate. Some days are sweatpant no shower days and somedays are hectic beyond belief. . .but these are my days. Whatever “day” you are in, cherish it and don’t forget them. These too shall pass and they are worth remembering. I would love to capture these times for you.

Wedding Day!

This girl was ready to see her soon to be husband. She was calm and focused and so excited.

Time for the First Look.

Their faces showed EXACTLY how they were feeling.

2014-07-22_0008.jpg

BAM! They were looking pretty good!

Man. Could this bunch be sweeter?

2014-07-23_0003.jpg

Meet Ella Josephine.

2014-07-23_0002.jpg

She’s an absolute doll.

2014-07-23_0006.jpg

Her sisters couldn’t be more excited about her, and neither could Dad.

2014-07-23_0004.jpg

This girl’s hair is to die for.:)

2014-07-23_0007.jpg

Sigh. Absolute. LOVE.

2014-07-23_0005.jpg

This little one is going to be well taken care of. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more protective and loving big sister.

Congratulations!

Ryan+Brittanie. . .ENGAGED!

2014-07-13_0002.jpg

Boy Oh Boy! I was nervous and so excited for Ryan. It all started with a phone call a few weeks again. He had a plan. The plan was to propose to his girlfriend, Brittanie, on July 12th and he wanted it documented. She had no clue.

2014-07-13_0003.jpg

She thought they were just eating at the Boat House and then going on the paddle boats. . .but there was a little more in store for her. (Ryan and I had met and picked a spot several weeks ago. I took pictures as they paddled and then I got to the spot and waited for them to arrive)

2014-07-13_0007.jpg

When they got there I. WAS. DYING. I couldn’t hear them so I just waited for a reaction. . .and there was a good one:)

2014-07-13_0005.jpg

After he asked her there was another surprise. . .

2014-07-13_0006.jpg

Ryan had gotten both of their families and best friends to come and surprise her. They waited further down on a bridge.

2014-07-13_0008.jpg

Brittanie didn’t know they were there so she started making phone calls. It. was. perfect.

2014-07-13_0004.jpg

BAM! She sees them!

2014-07-13_0009.jpg

So sweet and GREAT job Ryan!

2014-07-13_0013.jpg

The celebration began. Nothing beats a hug from Dad.

2014-07-13_0011.jpg

Yea!

These two little girls are so super excited about their new sister and she’s going to be well taken care of by these two older sisters.:)

2014-07-11_0003.jpg

It is so sweet to watch the dynamics and interactions with this bunch.

2014-07-11_0006.jpg

BAM-O! I love this squishy baby shot and I love how Mom is in it. Moms. Your babies are going to want you in the shots one day. They aren’t only going to want to see what they looked like as a newborn or toddler. They are going to want to see you, holding them, laughing with them and loving them. Remember that and get in there.:)

Congratulations on your new little love. She’s a precious one.

Harrison.

2014-07-10_0007.jpg

This session was different. . .and I liked it.:)

2014-07-10_0001.jpg

Here’s why. The session location request was a field and fountain/splash park. It sounded good in theory but was it doable? Was there any way to make it successful?  When it is 95 degrees and super humid a public location with water is pretty impossible. Too. Many. People. So, I was forced to get creative, which was good.

2014-07-10_0002.jpg

We started at a field.

2014-07-10_0003.jpg

Harrison just turned one, and was a complete cutie.

2014-07-10_0009.jpg

Then, we made our own splash pad. It. Was. Perfect.

2014-07-10_0008.jpg

AND he LOVED it.

2014-07-10_0005.jpg

And so did we. What’s better then an excited little one year old. We couldn’t stop smiling at this guy. He was pretty dreamy.

2014-07-10_0006.jpg

Mom and Dad had a little fun too.

2014-07-10_0004.jpg

HOLY MOLY! I LOVE this one.

2014-07-10_0010.jpg

Perfect-o! Super idea! Super fun!
