a whirlwind!

In a few recent posts, I’ve eluded to the fact that I’ve had a lot going on and got a bit behind on blogging. Finally, I’m here to share some photos of and details of the crazy exciting things going on. Read more…

a year of ak

Over the past year, I did a mini session bundle with AK. She was born a month early and came out tiny! It was very exciting to see her grow over the year into a bubbly happy 1 year old from just a tiny 5 pound baby. It’s also good timing since I’m just about to restart that journey, with baby #2, so it’s a nice reminder of how much things change over a year and how sleep deprivation in the beginning eventually gets better and leads to a kid full of personality! Here are some of my favorite photos from the year. Don’t forget to contact me today if you’d like to set up a newborn session or mini session bundle!

i’m still here!

I’m still here! Life has been a bit crazy lately with some various activities in addition to growing a baby. Yesterday I had a session with these guys, who I haven’t photographed since last year. It was great to see them! Here’s one of my favorites from the session. I’d like to get back into the groove of normal blogging, but I don’t think that’ll happen until I make it through some big events (non-baby related) throughout the next couple of weeks.

fall

wednesday photo share: fall

This week, the blog is a bit quiet as we’ve been busy with fall activities lately. I continue to work on my latest quilt, and taking candid photos of the fam, including A pictured here ferociously enjoying the leaves, but things have been fairly quiet in terms of photo sessions as I move into my 8th month of pregnancy.

A has picked up a lot of new vocabulary words lately, like “ha” (hat), “ba” (bag), keys and shoe. She’s pretty good at mimicking words, e.g. she was able to mimic me saying the word “dizzy”, but then she doesn’t reuse those words. She’s very good at getting into trouble, and making a pouty face when she knows she’s getting into something she shouldn’t. She seemed to enjoy getting candy for Halloween (see below), but wasn’t quite sure how to trick-or-treat and was scared of a lot of kids dressed up with scary masks.
