Some black-and-whites of my favorite ladies

We had a play date/dinner date with Jake and Emily and Penny this week. Penny recently learned to walk and watching her take proud little steps was far too cute. That little lady has my heart. When they weren’t pulling each other’s hair (in a harmless, curious sort of way way), Cece and Penny were adorable toddling…

Nickless-Moe Family Photos

While Sarah and family were in town, they were so kind as to let me attempt my first semi-official portrait session. I feel like I learned more shooting in those two hours than in the past two months. I was actually exhausted when we finished up! It’s much different than leisurely photographing your own kid. Kudos to people who have a…

One of my favorite weeks…

This is a rather great week going down right now as Sarah and Will are here for seven whole days. AH! We’re pretty much having the ultimate stay-at-home-mom summer experience. We’ve been going on little, yet fun, outings that have included Jimmy John’s, the playground, going on walks, and grilling at our house. We also brought them to Toddler Tuesday at the…

Roman Holiday

I’ve lived in Minneapolis for eight years and had not officially seen a show at the Guthrie Theater until last Friday. And it was one spectacular lady date. My former coworker and current friend, Laura, is in Roman Holiday. The show was absolutely charming and full of energy. I have also never seen such elaborate and…

Jake & Em’s housewarming (aka, all I did was take baby pictures)

How times have changed from Jake and Emily’s last housewarming party! There was less keg and more toys, for sure. A high percentage of our former softball and broom ball team have all had littles in the past year and they are all SO. CUTE. The highlight was all the babies playing in the pool and water…

“True friendship isn’t about never being separated…

2004  2012 It’s being separated and nothing changes.” (OK, maybe a few small things have changed in the past few years ; ) p.s. Sarah and Will just visited again and of course it made me wish that they lived here. I know 400 miles is far to travel for a play date, but please come…

A French-themed lady date

So, if you are one of my lady friends, you can expect that I will take photos during any kind of food-related outing. Can’t help it. I love making, photographing, and eating food, even if it’s all on a very amateur level. Thus, I would like to say thanks to all of my lady friends (and Joe) who humor me…

Cecelia and Penelope getting big!

Emily, Jake, Joe, and I did a little grilling of steak and potatoes tonight and watched the babies do their thing. Meaning poke each other. Try to hold hands. Have conversation. It was rather cute, if I do say. And I think I really enjoy seeing manly men with their little girls. And the little girls being…

Out without a diaper bag? Weird.

On Friday night, I had a pretty significant “WHO am I???” moment as I had a night out planned that didn’t begin until 8 p.m. (FYI, I normally go to sleep around 9, so this was kind of a big deal.) I put C to bed first and Joe stayed home with her so I could have…
