Cowboy Boots and Wildflowers

This recent senior session was so much fun! If you follow my blog you know I shoot a ton of young children and families so having someone old enough to follow directions that I didn’t have to chase around was a fun change:)This beauty was a natural in front of the camera – she will be graduating soon and wanted a few senior portraits:)

graces . . .

1. Finally got my haircut Sunday after about a year – feels nice to have all the dead ends gone:)
2. Booked a flight for my mother in law to come visit for awhile – we are all looking forward to seeing her!
3. Ellie cut her first tooth! She also transitioned to her crib last week like a champ with no disruption in her schedule – she is such a good baby <3
4. Christian is all registered for transitional kinder in the fall – how is my baby already done with preschool?!
5. Hubby took some shots of the kids and I this past weekend – was nice to get in a few pics since I’m usually behind the camera – especially since the times flies so quickly and I need these pics to look back on and remember how small my babies once were <3

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:)
