I don’t blog often enough, and I realized this even more when a good friend (who happens to be doing some work for me right now) pointed out that she didn’t realize I was so busy because she isn’t on Facebook. Those that DO follow me on Facebook see WAY more pictures than they probably should. Ha! So…it’s my goal to get caught up on here…and STAY caught up. And with my new girl, Monique’s help I think this just might happen!

So…first  up. The Ducky Mini’s. Seriously my most FAV ever. I love these kids!! I love these sessions. Oh, I could go on and on. I almost want to add another day. They were that much fun!

Thank you to my wonderful clients for keeping me busy, always!

I love the theme we stuck with for Chloe’s 7 month pictures. How adorable is she? I always love my time with Marco & Sarah, and this shoot was extra fun since her Uncle’s got to hop in for some shots, too!

I met baby Drew when he was just hours old, photographing him for the very first time in the hospital. It’s hard to believe it has already been a year! We celebrated Drew’s upcoming 1st birthday with a fun photo session, complete with a cake smash and naked baby pictures. Because really, what else is cuter than a naked 1 year old bootie? Can’t think of much!

Thanks for an awesome session Michelle & Tim! Happy 1st birthday Drew!!!

Seriously Reilly, you might be the cutest little red head ever! So glad I have been able to document this sweet little girl every year. And her boots- I loved the so much I got a pair for me! xxoo

My first little girl turns 6 on Sunday.  I can remember the moment she was born so clearly.  I can remember the doctor laying her in my arms after what seemed like forever and that realization that we got to take her home with us. I was forever responsible for this little life. What a scary and surreal moment.

I question my decisions every day. The little things- should I really send another Uncrustable in her lunch this week instead of a nice, healthy home made sandwich? (the answer to that one after a sleepless night was a loud yes) as much as the big ones-   am I letting her become her own person, am I spending enough one on one time with her, does she feel safe and secure?

Every mom does this, I know, but there is something about your first born that makes you question it all a little more. This time last year we made the decision not to start kindergarten yet. She made the cut off, but barely. She was shy, still very unsure of new situations, and her confidence needed a little boost. I might not always make the best decisions with what to pack in her lunchbox, but holding her back a year was definitely one of the best ones we have made.

This six year old girl is about a thousand times more confident than the 5 year old I remember last year. She was actually disappointed to hear they didn’t stay at school for lunch the first few weeks of school and has asked several times if she could stay for daycare after school some time.

But at night, when we tuck her into bed, she still requires the same routine she has needed for years to fall asleep. A story, a kiss, snug as a bug tuck in and a loud “MWAAH Mommy!!”. If I don’t respond back with “MWAAH!” or if some part of the routine was not quite perfect we have to start over. That’s the baby in her coming out, and when she shows up next to my bedside in the middle of the night because she had a bad dream or when I find her sleeping on the bottom bunk with her little sister the next morning it makes me feel good. My baby is still in there.

She has the biggest heart, always concerned about her sisters, especially Madison. If she gets a treat at school the first thing she does when she gets home is shares it with her little sister. Melts my heart every time.

This weekend we will celebrate. She opted for a family party this year with a special outing instead of a big friend party, so we will see where that takes us. Her one big request was dinner at Shogun. She has mastered chopsticks and wants to show off her new skill to the rest of the family.

Happy birthday my sweet little girl. I love you more than you will ever know.

Kyle and his paper airplanes. Despite the record breaking heat and humidity and swarms of bugs, we managed to pull it off.  Walking away from the session, I wasn’t sure we got anything great, but when I got home and went through them I couldn’t pick my favorite of this cute little guy!

Jill, thank you! I can’t wait to see some of these hanging in Kyle’s room!

Also, special thanks to my dad for making all the paper airplanes!
