My favorite season! I hate hot weather so I'm super happy that the temps are finally going to start cooling off. Fall makes me think of sitting around a campire, laughing and eating s'mores with my family. Of course it's also a gorgeous season for photography. I do still have some availability for October and early November if anyone wants to fit in a portrait session with their family, pets, kids, friends etc. Fall photos are great for Christmas cards, and it's not too early to start thinking about those.

Here are two fall snapshots of my favorite photography subject to get everyone in the Autumn mood.

It is officially the last day of summer so get out and enjoy it! Go barefoot, eat some watermelon, and sit in the dirt like Hayden or just take a little walk. We'll all be wearing coats and boots before you know it!

My baby boy turned one yesterday! I baked him a giant, chocolate cupcake to celebrate, but he was more interested in the candle.

Hayden is One

Once we blew the candle out, he lost interest and actually seemed to think that the cake itself was really gross. He was very unhappy sitting next to it and even kicked it a few times to move it away.

Hayden is One

Of course we acted like fools trying to get one good, happy photo, but this is the best smile we could coax out of him.

Hayden is One

He did eventually try a bite and hated it so there weren't any cake eating photos. He got his feet covered in icing though and ended up getting his second bath for the day. Baths are his favorite thing to do so that was definitely his favorite present.

My little baby is growing up too fast! He has more than doubled his birth weight and is sitting up now. I pulled out the old scale that I used for newborn photographs so that I could document the change.

Before anyone asks... I did not let him balance up there on his own, but I edited my arm out of the photograph.

Oh How Quickly They Grow


Here are a few photographs that we took outside on Saturday.

I do have some wedding stuff to post too, but I have albums and orders to finish up before I get around to it.

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.

Happy Valentines Day

Whether you're recently engaged or have been married for decades, I hope that everyone takes the time this weekend to reflect on how important your loved ones are and to let them know what they mean to you. In my opinion, our relationships are really what make life so rewarding and wonderful.
I am especially blessed to share my life with a wonderful husband and a perfect little baby. My days are filled with so many wonderful moments now, but some of my favorite come just as Hayden is waking up - when he looks at me with complete adoration and joy like I am the most important person in the world. His love is so pure and magical. I wish that all love could be so simple.

Happy Valentines Day

Here are a few more recent photos that I love. These next two are such "Hayden" looks.

Sometimes he'll just sit and stare at his hands as if they are the most amazing new discovery, but he's also in love with his feet.
