By His Grace

Meet sweet Alannah!  What an angel baby!  Can you even handle those cheeks?! What a joy it was to watch big sister stick to her side like glue.  Wherever baby was, big sis had to be. Little brother wasn’t so sure about the new edition but in his own precious way, he stole time with baby […]

The First of Fall

When she first contacted me, I had my mind made up that I would not be taking clients here.  I had my reasons and they were sound BUT…there are just so many beautiful people, untold stories and amazing places to see here that I could not NOT photograph them.  It had been a bit of […]

and then we had korea

I said I wasn’t going to take any sessions in Korea.  I said I wouldn’t have time.  I said that I would be traveling too much and I wanted to focus on my own photos.  I said this wasn’t the season of life for me to be working. But these people were a good reason […]

he reads

this kid decided he wants to read today.  so he picked up a book…and he read. sitting next to him, hearing him put the letter sounds together and beam with joy over his success?  it was enough to make me tear up. even though we have incredibly tough days of not understanding one another, it’s […]

bubble walk

we haven’t made an official summer bucket list but this was something we have wanted to do for some time.  couldn’t find any bubbles in the home (mom of the year) so we made some.  hence the pipe cleaner wands and lack of bubbles.  used a pinterest recipe but had to substitute two of the […]


i watch them play.  in and out of the curtain, laughing and running into each other.  two point five years apart, roughly. when i look at them, i see that the oldest was once four.  and he was once 18 months.  and it’s hard to remember what he was like then.  moments flash back between […]

mini.  something small of it’s kind. mini person.  mini sweater.  mini big boy jeans with mini pockets.  mini chocolate in mini hands.  mini little man who big time melts me. #mini #projectlife365
