Archer at 9 Months

Archer is 9 months and 10 days old. I’m a little unnerved at how quickly all of these milestones are coming up and how big he is getting… big personality, big head, big appetite, and big trouble. Ares was not pleased that I wanted to use the dump truck as a prop and promptly brought…

Fields of Gold

“I want to be like a sunflower; so that even on the darkest days, I will stand tall and find the sunlight.” Summer is approaching it’s end and there’s evidence everywhere from the leaves are beginning to turn, to the teacher meetings this week, and the mornings that have a glorious crispness in the air….

Three, Six, Nine (and Six Months)

For nearly a month now, I’ve had “Take Archer’s 6 Month pics on my to-do list.” And I’m satisfied to say that about five minutes before he turned seven months old, I got them done! If that doesn’t deserve a self-high five, what does? I also realized my family is at this neat moment where…

Family Photos Spring 2020

Last month, we had family photos taken by my friend Tricia! The purpose was for the Hudson Neighbors magazine feature, but she was kind enough to snap way more for us. I know it seems like we are always getting family photos done (and it sure feels that way for my own family I know!)….

Cece’s Photography

One week ago I let Cece borrow my old Canon rebel with the kit lens. She had asked if she could use it a few other times, and honestly, I’m running out of ideas and activities around here so I said sure. I gave her a few tips, but then just let her do her…

Archer’s Three Month Photos

In early March, just when Archer turned 3 months old, my friend Tricia efficiently and beautifully captured some great milestone photos of him. His little personality and really just been starting to come out… little smiles and smirks when he gets his way, BIG smiles when he’s getting attention, and complete contentment just to be…

Archer Quinn’s Arrival

One week ago all of our waiting ended and we finally got to meet our last and littlest, Archer! I had been debating the idea of having a birth photographer this time as each of our babies’ birthdays were easily the coolest days of my life… however, my actual memories are pretty blurry and Joe…

Photos with Sparky the Unicorn

A couple weekends ago our family had a unique opportunity to meet Sparky the Unicorn and have some photos taken with him! Originally I had only signed up Rosie for photos, but upon actually seeing Sparky, Cece changed her decision about declining photos with Sparky and barged jumped into the shoot too. All of our…

July 2019

Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a…

Love, Marriage & a Baby Carriage

This spring, Joe and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. We had a pretty fantastic date night and ended the evening by doing a photo session with my friend Rachel. She heard it was our anniversary and said we should probably celebrate with some photos. Her work is STUNNING with a gorgeous story telling style…
