For this week's theme, I decided to let you see what my actual Morning looks like.  Truth be told, this is my favorite time of day for our family...especially on Saturdays because Andrew doesn't have to get up early to leave for work.  

Somewhere between 5-6am Maggie wakes up and joins us in bed for her breakfast.  We all snuggle back into bed and when Jack wakes up he joins the party.  Typically, we have another addition to our snuggle time.  His name is Mr. Cow, he is my son's very best friend.  In one of the images Jack is making a strange face, but if you can imagine a sweet little voice yelling "Coooooooow" it will fit perfectly.  I hope you have a great Morning!

The Saturday of Easter weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful family!  The Adams go back as far in my memories as I can recall.  They have grown from a family of 5 to a family of 7 by adding a beautiful daughter-in-law and  a precious grandson.  I love seeing my friends become parents and/or aunts and uncles.  Mr. R is one loved little dude.  His smile just melted my heart and even with a tooth coming in, he preformed fabulously for our session.  I am so grateful that I was able to capture this family together and to catch up with some old friends. :)  Thank you Mr. Neville, Mrs. Jana, Heath, Jenni, Kurt and Kami!


I took a different approach for this week's theme.  This past Monday a few of my friends and I threw Poker themed Baby shower for our friends, the Carpenters.  We had so much fun planning and decorating for this non-traditional event.  We had, what we believed was, typical poker night food:  sub sandwiches, pigs in a blanket, chips and salsa, and root beer, as well as entire table full of sweets.  The women put our feet up while the men engaged in a friendly game of Poker.  Fittingly the Daddy-to-be won.  It was such a fun evening spent with wonderful friends.  Here are a few shots from the party.


We love you and we cannot wait to meet this little guy!!!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing my cousins.  They are expecting their first baby in May.  Mr. E will be such a blessed baby to have these two as parents.  I was so honored to be included in their journey to parenthood very early, when they asked me to help them break the news to their families. Through very careful scheming on their part, they arranged to have both families together for dinner and I just "happened" to be there after doing a session and had my camera.  There was laughter, tears, hugs and kisses.  It was a very fun night.  I'm adding this slideshow at the end.

I am blessed to have such a wonderful family.  We cannot wait to meet this newest addition!  Thank you Tim & Melissa!


This past weekend we took a trip to good ol' TX to celebrate our niece's 1st birthday.  I love that it is a custom to recognize the date of someone's birth and to celebrate the year that they are completing.  Watching our children eat their cake and soak up the attention of the "birthday song", makes me hold on to the word HOPE.  I have hope that they will grow into graceful adults.  I hope that the world will be kind to them.  I hope that they will grow closer to Christ every day.  And I hope that they will know that they are loved.
