Mother & Daughters

Photobucket I honestly pinch myself sometimes at how lucky and truly blessed I am to be able to know so many wonderful people in this world. Life truly is a miracle in every way, shape and form. Photography for me has truly strengthened that belief for me even more...as I am able to spend such treasured time recording and documenting moments and relationships with these amazing people. That was what this photo session was for me. Such a special and treasured time in so many ways...almost breathtaking actually. It was like taking a step back in time to a moment where I used to babysit these girls when they were just starting out...and now...they are beautiful young women who are now ready to take on the world. Wow, how incredible. How truly lucky am I to be able to capture them now as such beautiful women with incredible spirits and such driven hearts and minds. And to Mom T. What can I say? I have known you since I was a little girl and you have raised such amazing women...truly a reflection of your heart and soul as they stand before you now. And as always, you look absolutely incredible in these photos. Thank you to all of you for giving me such a wonderful evening of reconnection and creativity. My spirit and soul thank you. I hope you love the photos...there are many many more! Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Sweet Smiles

Photobucket Truly a great day it was to be able to photograph one of my best friends, her mom, and her beautiful baby girl. We had such a fun time spending the afternoon together...and through the many "wardrobe" changes were able to capture this little ones true little 6 month old glittering spirit. I honestly have way too many favorites, but these photos definitly top the list of melt-your-heart moments. She is truly a doll and has grown up so quickly. It just seems like yesterday when I took her newborn shots...and now...wow time surely does fly. I hope you love the photos and I was able to capture her little spirit for you to forever remember. I love you J! Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

New Beginnings

Photobucket Today I was so lucky and fortunate to have been chosen to document the end of one chapter. A new beautiful baby girl is soon to be welcomed into this world and I was asked to capture some maternity moments for this beautiful couple as they are entering a new chapter of their life...a new beginning. Everything went so smoothly, it was truly a wonderful day. There were so many great captures, and I hope that this couple loves my interpretation of their story. Thank you again for allowing me to document these moments for you. I hope you love them as much as I do. At this point, it's hard to pick a favorite as they all tell such a beautiful story. Enjoy these last weeks as you anxiously anticipate the arrival of your beautiful little angel. You will both be amazing parents! xoxo Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Chances Are...

Photobucket Chances are, some days, life and time go by so quickly that I never get a chance to tell you how much I appreciate and love you. Chances are, most days, the ways you take care and love me, our home, our life, and our little family may seem to you to go unnoticed, but truly know that I see every little thing that you do for us and I cherish it unconditionally. Chances are, tomorrow will be another awesome day where through your actions and words you will make me feel like the most important person in the world...yet again. So grateful to know and be married to the most wonderful guy in the world! Chances are I have already told you this today, but I would just like to say it once again.

Inspire

Photobucket Lately I have been inspired by so many things. I just love it. Frankly, being inspired is truly what keeps me going...keeps me energized. I was looking through some of my photo files on my computer and I came across this one. I love how one minute, a photo will just be a picture to you...and then another moment it will stand out to you so strongly that you can just feel the image and hear the story behind it. That is what this photo has become to me. I always had loved it, but I never really NOTICED it until just a few days ago...and how it totally inspires me. It inspires me for so many reasons...but mostly I think what inspires me most is that it represents to me the unbreakable bonds I share with so many amazing women in my life. Each one so different, with their own stories and journeys to experience...yet we are all the same. We are all connected and supporting each other in our journey's ahead. That to me....is truly inspiring. I am so lucky and I love each of these girls to pieces. They are all incredible. Other random things that are inspiring me lately have been the birds I hear singing at 5am. The smell of my shampoo in the morning, the fact that I do not have to wear socks with my shoes either these days...oh bless you spring! :) Music of course, photography blogs, vanilla body lotion, watermelon, my running shoes, magazines, journaling, my clean kitchen and right now...the way my house sounds at night. So peaceful, relaxing and oh so comforting. It truly is HOME. And I LOVE my home. I love how the most random things can be so inspiring. I love to feel energized, especially at times when a person can just feel so tired...and I am sure we all know how that feels. In a world that is in the midst of hardship and chaos right now, with all of the storms and bad weather and loss that is going on. I just feel so aware and blessed of all the things that are soooo good. So unfortunately underestimated and taken for granted at times, but oh so good.
