Sandy family fun :)

One of my favorite things about what I do is watching families grow and change over the years. This family has been in front of my camera many times – the first when their little guy was just a few months old. I couldn’t believe how much they’d grown since the last time I saw them!

Summer Sale!

Planning a summer session or event? From now until midnight July 27th you can snag a discounted full session or two hour party! This is the last sale until the fall so don’t miss out!

Discounted full session/party!

Seven!!

My sweet little guy,

In a few hours you will wake up and be 7 years old – I have no idea how that happened so fast – it seems like just yesterday your dada and I were bringing you home at a few days old – you made us parents and we couldn’t have asked for a better kid. You are an amazing little person – absolutely all boy now and so freaking smart. You suck up knowledge like a sponge and are good at almost everything you try. You just finished kindergarten with almost perfect grades and good behavior all but a handful of days the whole year. You just finished your second year of baseball and did amazing – your fielding and hitting have improved so much. You are a great little swimmer and love being in the water and you are learning drums, ukulele and keyboard right now and loving all three. You love playing games and can kick my butt at rummy tiles, love building legos and can build complicated sets with little assistance and you LOVE playing your ipad or video games especially with dada. You are the sweetest big brother to Ellie – always concerned about her and thinking about her when you’re apart and you will always put down whatever you’re playing to play with her when she asks. You guys do fight like siblings do but the majority of the time you play very well together despite the age difference between you.

Your favorite person by far is still dada – you guys are the best of friends and spend every moment together when he is home. You guys are always off on movie dates, outside riding scooters, having movie nights in mama and dada’s bed at home or playing pads or video games together. You love playing with your cousins, our friday chick fil a dates with Maddie and her brothers and hanging out with Austin. You have lost five teeth so far and I love your handsome grown up smile. It is so awesome to see you building your own relationships, learning so much each day and becoming your own little person. While part of me is sad that my first baby is growing up so quickly, I feel so blessed to be part of shaping you into this grown boy you’re becoming.

Happy Birthday to the boy who made me a mommy and has made me so proud every day since. I cannot wait to see what is in store for you over this next year and I hope it goes a little slower than the last.

I love you to the moon,

Mama

Fall minis 2017!!

Can’t believe it’s time to start thinking about fall minis already!! There are lots of dates and locations to choose from this year – a couple new spots and some old favorites. Use the links below to book your session – if you have a prepaid session on file you want to use just shoot me an email with the slot you want and I’ll block it off for you 🙂 Just a reminder that minis are for up to five people, immediate family only – no grandparents, cousins etc as they are short sessions and get too hectic. The mini sessions are not themed for the holidays as I know some people like to keep the pictures up in their home all year – they are just shorter lifestyle sessions perfect for getting both posed and candid shots of your family/kiddos. Feel free to email me with questions! Links for each day are located below the date/location 🙂
