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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

Three!

My sweet little goose,

Tonight we gave you kisses and put you to bed for the last time as a two year old – I can hardly believe you will be three in a few short hours! You are so excited for your birthday this year – you have been talking about your Elsa party for weeks. While this age has been a bit challenging it’s also been tons of fun – your little personality is so cute and you are so smart and fun to talk with. You are always singing and dancing around and asking people to play with you “just two minutes”.

You are still a great sleeper and a pretty good eater. You and brother share a room and go to bed at the same time each night – I love listening to you guys chatting before falling asleep and you often play games – throwing your lovie and bear from your crib to his bed and back and I can hear you giggling away while you do. In the morning I always hear wake up brother, good morning brother on the monitor – so so cute. Your favorite things to eat are “basketti”, chicken nuggets, fruits like bananas, mandarin oranges and blueberries, cereal, toast and all kinds of snacks. You’re constantly asking for a snack πŸ˜› You are obsessed with all things Elsa and frozen and you love other princesses too especially Cinderella and Belle. You and brother are also huge fans of the movie Sing and know the whole soundtrack by heart after listening to it thousands of times in the car. Your love of Mickey, Minnie and Peppa are still going strong as well. You love going to daycare and playing with your friends and you love our weekly trips to Chick fil a with friends. Much to this tomboys dismay you love all things girlie – you LOVE shoes and twirly dresses and all kinds of accessories – secretly I love dressing you up even though I don’t enjoy that stuff myself. I never imagined myself a girl mom but watching you grow and develop into a sweet little lady has been one of my life’s greatest joys.

Happiest of birthdays to you my sweet girl – I can’t wait to see what this coming year has in store for you. Mama and Dada and Christian love you so so much <3 Love, Mama

You wore this dress at least 75 days out of the last year so it was only fitting to take your birthday pics in it <3

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!
