in their eyes...

"While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about."

It never ceases to amaze me, all that we learn just by one glimpse into the eyes of our children. When life gets a little unbalanced and the days go by too fast, I love how a simple moment in their eyes brings you back to what is really important in life...and how everything else seems a little bit softer.

Another sweet baby so precious and new a few months back...

And now...

Thank you C Family for choosing me to capture such special moments of adorable Mr. S!

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with family”
~ Anthony Brandt~

I remember being asked by an English teacher in high school what I felt the meaning of life was. Being a deep thinker I loved the question and all the possible ways to answer it. I think the meaning of life is different for all of us, however, I also believe one thing remains the same. That one of the most beautiful gifts it bestows upon us is the journey to finding out exactly what that meaning is. And along the matter which roads, hills or valleys we travel down we will always have our families to share every moment, every memory with.

Here is a beautiful family that I adore. I met with them about nine months may remember this handsome Lil' man.

And today...

...amazing what a few short months can do! ;)

In awe...

I met sweet Miss. J for the first time just over a year ago. She was simply stunning then and her beauty, inside and out, just continues to grow. One of the best parts of my job is meeting such wonderful clients and families that allow me to come back year after year to document this amazing thing called life! I am in awe....Miss. J and your lovely Mommy...Thank you for such a fun morning!

Daughters are angles sent from above to fill our heart with unending love. ~

Christmas in July/Thank You !

Last week my daughters decided all on their own to make a "Wish List" for Santa. It was very sweet and full of magic and wonder. It began with another real dog, goldfish and a hamster to new dresses and a dog coloring book. There were also things as simple as a cupcake and a real flower...just one. But my favorite had to be when one of my girls wrote down that they wanted "fast shoos" (fast shoes) and a music box. They wrote each item on their list in different colors with the lower case A's all colored in. It made me smile and I am smiling still remembering the conversation I over heard while they decided what would make the list and what wouldn't. Its moments like these that I hope to remember and cherish forever...moments of innocence that capture the essence of childhood so well. I am so thankful to document these every day miracles (yes to me they are) for them and continue to be blessed that you allow me to capture them for your family as well. I would like to show my appreciation by having a "Christmas in July/Thank You Give A Way"!!! Inspired by my very own loves!

Brotherly Love

"There's no other love like the love for a brother. There's no other love like the love from a brother." ~ Astrid Alaud

I had another amazing morning with three handsome boys! They are so full of life and love. One of my greatest inspirations is all the wonder within a child, and it radiates from all three of theses brothers, only in different ways and levels of course... Mr. J and Mr. T I had so much fun exploring and searching for snakes and foxes!! And Mr. C you are simply divine!! So sweet! Mom and Dad you should feel so proud to have such incredible children! Enjoy your "sneak peek" and more to come soon!! ;)
