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…

Mamahood at it’s Shiniest

Back at the beginning of summer, I took my own advice and I got in some photos with my kids! We had a mini session with Patty Schmitt Photography. The girls got to have an epic dress up experience and everyone cooperated for twenty minutes of photos. Best Mother’s Day gift I’ve given myself ever!…

Married for 8 Years!

  As of today, Joe and I have been married for eight years! I had planned on posting a few of our wedding photos in honor of our anniversary. But then I got to looking at them and nearly posted 500. It was such a good day and a fun celebration! (And I happen to…

Ares at 9 Months

Yesterday Ares turned 9 months old! He is just a little dude living his best life. He put up with his crazy mama and was a total rockstar for his 9 month photo shoot yesterday afternoon. Getting him to smile at me was easy peasy because he’s such a happy little man. Wrestling his chubby…

Mini Session GIVEAWAY!

Hi, friends! I’ll make this post short and sweet since I know we all have a long holiday weekend to enjoy! I just want to shout a giant THANK YOU to all who asked me to take photos this year! I had a wonderful time meeting new families as well as reconnecting with those whom…

Family Photos 2017

At the beginning of December, my whole family humored me and allowed me color coordinate our outfits and take them out hiking in the woods for the sake of family photos.  Fortunately, the afternoon was warm and we got some genuine smiles out of the kiddos. And since Ares hadn’t yet turned officially seven months…

Six and Three

“My biggest dream come true is my daughter; I’ve wanted her since I was a little girl.” (^^^Shoe credit goes to Grandma Pat!^^^) On my to-do list this summer was to take updated photos of the girls that I could frame, give to grandparents, etc. I finally got around to it this morning!  I also…

Family and Newborn Photos

Last weekend we cleaned up ourselves and our house (kind of) and had some family and newborn photos taken! Since Ares arrived, I only had one photo of him, Joe, and myself (which was of me on the operating table) and none of all five of us. This time, I am extremely aware of how quickly…

Baby Shower Invitations for Girls (and a giveaway with Paperless Post!)

With this wintry weather in full effect, I am eagerly anticipating warmer days and upcoming spring celebrations. (Not that wearing a dozen winter items each isn’t a blast, but I’m absolutely longing for the day where the girls and I can slip on flip flops and be out the door in 30 seconds as opposed to the 30…

Family Pictures 2016… and news!

                  Holiday greetings from our family! We took our Christmas card photos weeks ago (back in October) in an extremely successful 10 minutes session by Joe’s cousin Ashley (THANK YOU, ASHLEY!!!) I’ve been dying to share photos, not just because I love sharing pictures, but so I can…
