Ethiopia

I’m not sure how to share all that has happened since I last found the time to catch up on my blog.  We traveled to meet Teagan in early May.  He is absolutely precious.  As a nanny carried him down the stairs to meet us for the first time, he called out “Mommy! Daddy!” and...

This love is a reflection

their world

I may not have won the give away for a family session from Melissa Zihlman Photography, but I did find inspiration in the series on her blog documenting the every day life of her two sweet little boys.  As I capture this scene unfolding in front of me, I am reminded of why my journey in...

The gift of capturing an ordinary day…

That is what I strive to give my clients and now I am hoping to have the same for my family. I am really excited that we are finalists in the “all you need is love giveaway” from Melissa Zihlman Photography. Melissa lives in Texas but she will fly to the winner’s hometown...

and so they grow.

My babies both had birthdays this week. It seems so fitting that they are celebrating together since they have such a special bond. Riley simply adores his little sister. He can never get enough hugs & kisses and tells me everyday that she is the most beautiful baby in the world.
As we...
