Oct + Nov 2019

As per usual, I feel like I can’t fully move on to the next season of the year/life until I’ve done at least a wee little blog post bringing everything up to date. Here are just a few happenings and photos from October and November. To be honest, I spent most of my time shooting…

Halloween 2019

Hello from November! Halloween was one week ago and if I don’t post photos of it now, the images and memories will get lost in the abyss of my slush photos and we’ll never see them again! Anyone in the Midwest can agree that it was a frigid one. At least it stayed dry for…

September 2019

Ah, old blog, I’ve missed you so! Fall is consistently a busy time of year, but this one has definitely been busier than most. I knew mama/family blogging would have to get moved to the backburner for a bit, but I thought I would do a brief catch-up on at least some autumnal happenings. Early…

First Days of School 2019

I’m still in disbelief that our girls are this big and this old, but Cece and Rosie began third grade and kindergarten this week. Cece started school this Tuesday and Rosie just boarded the bus for her first day of kindergarten this morning. I’m really glad they were cooperative and willing to take first-day pics….

September & October 2018

  “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” Fall? What fall? Life is zooming by, and I feel like the seasons aren’t even taking turns right now. Over here we went from 90 to 55, as if the weather saw a state trooper. Now…

“Finter” Fun

So winter has come barging in on fall’s territory with quite the attitude! I’m deeming the merge of the two seasons as “finter.” (I’ve checked. It’s a thing. Or at least a hashtag) The above photo was taken the day after Halloween. Nice, right? Even though low temps and the occasional snow have kind of…

I Love Fall Most of All

  I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year.  Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze….

Halloween 2016

  Hi, friends! Last Monday was Halloween and our first time trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. And O M Goodness. What fun the girls had and what an impressive candy haul they brought home! (Thanks, girls!) Cece wanted a mermaid costume this year and Rosie was excited to be Elena of Avalor. The girls let me…

ALL the things!

Well, hi! It’s been nearly two months since my last post. (As you can see, the above photo is from late summer when Target still thought kids carts were a good idea.)  We’ve been staying busy with all things fall and adjusting to Cece’s life in kindergarten. I’ve been taking lots of family pictures and even shot two weddings…

Fall Family Pictures

Back in October I sought out matching sweater dresses and big ol’ headbands as we had our first official photo shoot as a family of four done by Ashley Partch.  ^^^I felt this excited about it.^^^  However, I was even more excited after I viewed our images. I take pictures of my own children all…
