Mommy and Me Minis!

If you mamas are anything like me you spend most of your time behind the camera and not enough time in front of it. Your kiddos need pictures with their mamas! They don’t care if you are 5 lbs overweight or have permanent circles under your eyes from lack of sleep – they think you’re beautiful just the way you are. So this year I am introducing mommy and me minis – come get in some shots with your kids and then get them printed so they will have them to cherish forever. You can bring grandma too if you want a shot with your mommy;)

You will have your proofs back by May 2nd to allow time to print gifts etc. These minis are for mamas and kiddos only – no family pics! If you are interested in family pics there are still a few spring minis left! Email me with questions or if you have a pre-paid mini you’d like to redeem:)

Tutus and Lightpoles :)

A few weeks ago I got to hang out with one of my favorite families – you may remember them from this post. I have seen them quite a few times in between these posts but I am terrible at keeping up this poor blog:P










graces . . .

1. Ellie will be well dressed thanks to some awesome hand me downs from the beauties in this post <3
2. Clients turned friends – thankful to have a few of them:)
3. Watching my little clients grow and change over the years
4. Trying out a new spring mini location this year – I have shot there before but never done minis there so we will see how it goes!
5. One more family day tomorrow before I head back to work next week:(

More Family Fun!

This was my first time hanging out with this gorgeous family. I don’t shoot a ton of older kids so it was a fun change to not have to chase them around;)









graces . . .

1. Currently addicted to instagram shops – particularly ones that sell moccs and leggings – I can’t believe how many talented crafty mamas there are out there!
2. Dinner dates and train rides with good friends <3
3. My new Erin Condren planner – love a fresh new planner and added bonus that my babies are on the cover:)
4. Lots of birthdays to celebrate this month!
5. Got to snuggle my good friends new little guy this week – can’t believe my little gal was that small just a few weeks ago!

Family fun!

Remember this little guy? He’s a big brother now and I got to hang out with his family again just before the holidays:)I think it might have been the hottest day of the year or maybe it just felt like it since I was 8 months pregnant but the kiddos were troopers and we got a lot of great shots!










graces . . .

1. Spring minis are booking quickly – a little over half full!
2. A few fun family activities planned for my last week of maternity leave next week – so sad to leave my baby but grateful for last last three months off with her <3
3. Baby girl is a great sleeper and so happy and smiley when she's awake:)
4. Didn't quite meet my goal to finish our family albums while I was off but I did get my Chatbooks printed – order yours if you haven’t yet!
5. Christian is the sweetest big brother – always talking to baby and asking how she is etc. <3
