hope you had a very special easter celebration! happy easter from my little munchkins (and me)

this is my little boy. and today, he turns seven years old. jackson orian... we love you more than simple words could ever express. you are the bravest, hardest working little boy. you are generous, you are so smart, and you delight in the happiness of others. seven years ago you made me a mommy, and i have treasured every day since- just like i treasure you. happy birthday, my sweet jackson.

there are those experiences in your life that you truly will never forget. getting to be a part of sweet mayson's birth is definitely one of those. i have three children of my own, but all three were born c-section.  i've never actually seen a regular birth. so when my dear friend, jenna, asked me to photograph hers, i was excited and, admittedly, pretty nervous .  jenna was scheduled to be induced early in

today my baby turns three years old. i don't know where the time has gone, but i sure wish it would slow down. i was setting up for a shoot in the studio when she came in and asked me to take pictures of her like "my babies". so i sat for about 15 minutes and just took pictures of her. smiling, acting silly, talking... just being herself. trying to capture all her little faces

nine little cousins

January 16, 2013

this past christmas, we had the opportunity to spend several days with my husband's family. we all live in different places, so it was extra special to spend a few days together, especially for all the cousins. we have a grand total of nine kids, three per family, ranging from eleven years to six months old. needless to say, it gets LOUD when we are all together, but totally worth all the blown eardrums. we

have a SUPER halloween!

the frazier family

this family is extra special to me. this is my big brother, my beautiful sis-in-law, and my adorable nephews. i love that we live close enough to see one another and that our kids can grow up together. they are pretty awesome... i think it must be genetic :). this is liam.  he's five. he's crazy-athletic and all sorts of spunky fun. this is aidan. he's eight. he's super smart and a mega-talented artist.  and he was game mvp right

i was so glad that little ephram was born just days before my trip. that meant i was able to take pics of him in the hospital and at his home. but we had to do a real newborn portrait session for him too, even though he was just three days old (not normally when i photograph newborns... just a day or two too early!). he wasn't too sure if he wanted to cooperate with

oh, this baby. his mommy and i have been friends for a long time, so i couldn't wait to see his sweet little face. but he made us wait... an extra 11 days! my plane tickets were already booked, so i was worried he wasn't going to come in time. but he did. and he is perfect.... all 10 POUNDS and 10.6 OUNCES of him! i got to meet him while he was still in the

this baby girl is extra special to me... she's my new niece! i was in love the minute i laid eyes on her. those perfect little lips and awesome hair... her big brothers are going to be busy protecting her when she gets bigger! love you so, sweet adalyn! xoxo- your auntie.
