Blessings abound!

Friends, these are my people. Yes. These people are my people. They like to call it “the people on your ‘Home Team'”… I call it people in “My tribe.” But regardless, they are the people that when life is hard, when life is good, when life is upside down, when life is down right hilarious – you want to share it with your “Home Team” … “Your Tribe.” I pray, truly, that YOU… that WE ALL…  have these people in our lives… because –  heck! We need them. Family. Friends… whoever is in your tribe…  they sure do make life a whole lot better. Because even when life is at its hardest- your tribe encourages you or just stands beside you.. and well makes it better. And in the case of “My tribe” – we can find any reason to laugh and celebrate too! 😀 The stories I have shared with this team, the hard conversations, the laughs, the experiences. Sigh. I am so grateful for them.

Please take time to look at their smiles! And, while you are at it,  take a moment to touch base with the people on YOUR “Home Team” – “Your Tribe”. 😀 Blessing abound!


You & nachos make me happy!

The last time I saw this little boy was when he was just days old. YES! Just a sweet newborn, with his parents swooning and working hard to find their new bearings. Such a unique chapter of life. Everyone is vulnerable and just doing the best you can. I guess that doesn’t change much even as the years roll on as a parent. It just changes. But, as you can imagine, I was over the moon to hear from this family again for some more photo fun.

Ya see, nothing makes me happier than watching my littlest clients grow into… well, themselves. (I mean, don’t get me wrong – nachos make me very happy too… but. 😀 ) It was so remarkable to walk into their homes and see their little man. Time has passed, and they have grown – but, yet, there in those eyes… or in that smile… is the same little guy that I saw last time. I love this part of my job.

I tell my clients, once I photograph you – I don’t forget you. And it is the truth. You have to remember – that I spend several hours after our session staring at your faces – choosing the photos, doing some editing, creating your slide show and gallery. So, whether you like it or not, my friend – we hang out! 😀 So, I don’t forget you… esp your little ones.

So, my heart genuinely swells as I see you all again. And this little man, well… as I told his momma – I fell in love with him all over again. He is something quite spectacular. So laid back. So sweet. A snuggler… so yea, I the love comes easy with this sweetheart.

Check them out. And for even better news… baby #2 coming this holiday season… GAH!





Showing you the love is easy. <3

Right as I was leaving they turned to me and said “Thanks! This was the first time we have ever done a professional photo session”… and later that day in an e-mail “… and it was fun!” <3 My heart swelled.

I am so darn grateful to be chosen to capture these fleeting days of highchairs, cribs, big wheels, first steps, messy faces, airplane rides, toddler toes, lovey’s, book slobber, snuggles… GAH!… so many magical moments in our every day lives…the love and the play.<3 The good stuff. I love capturing it!

Well, these photos below are just the tip of the iceberg. It was so hard to choose what to show you, friends. So hard. <3 But, bottom line, as I was scanning them all – one thing that was easy to see is…this family’s laughter is contagious (They have the BEST laughs!) and the love between them flows so easy. So, I decided it didn’t really matter, so I picked ones that made me smile…because the love is what I really want to show you anyway and showing you that was easy… Life is so good. Take a look. 😀
