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….

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…

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!

A Monochrome Morning

Good morning and happy Sunday! It’s been awhile since I took out my camera and just snapped a few photos of my own kids around our house. So on Thursday morning I did just that. And then I made the photos black and white because black and white = artsy. And I really want all…

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…

And since Ares hadn’t yet turned officially seven months…
