Hayden, Ben, and I all had birthdays recently so we were able to celebrate for several weeks in a row. The best part was that I only had to make one giant cupcake. Hayden loved lighting the candles and singing Happy Birthday repeatedly, but he isn't a fan of getting messy so no cake smashing for him. When it was Ben's turn, he happily sqished icing in his hands before dumping the whole thing onto the ground and diving in.

As usual, they wouldn't cooperate for photos together. Maybe next year...

This next photograph shows my first attempt at a tent (and was obviously taken before we mowed the yard).

We're having a mini baby boom in my family where both of my sisters and my sister-in-law were pregnant at the same time as me. My older sister lives out of town but happened to be visiting Knoxville when she went into labor and gave birth less than half an hour after arriving at the hospital. Little Landon weighed 8lb 5oz and was only a few hours old when I took these photographs at the hospital.

I know that some people have been wondering where I've been lately, and I apologize for being MIA. For those of you who don't already know, Marcus and I are expecting another little boy this fall!

While I did photograph some weddings when pregnant with Hayden, it wasn't easy. This time I decided that I would only photograph a limited number of portrait sessions during the pregnancy. That means that there is less to put on my blog but more time to spend with my growing toddler and getting ready for baby number two.

It seems that I picked a very good time to be pregnant as several of my friends and former clients are also expecting. I'm so excited to meet the babies, and I should have some very cute newborns to share in the coming months. For now, here is a photograph from Lisa's mini maternity session. She's expecting a boy and a girl. Twins!

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!
