I had one of the funnest sessions I have had in a long time. I love being put in new challenging situations having to figure out the lighting and settings. Sometimes it doesn't work in my favor and then other times it comes out amazing.
This family was so much fun they were up for anything and everything. They are so full of life. It was so easy to so all the love that they have for each other. So many caring and loving moments in just the few hours that I was with them.
There were so many amazing photos to choose from it was so hard not posting all of them. I am so grateful I was able to document this wonderful time in their lives. These moments in our family's lives are fleeting and it is so important to hang on to them as long as we can.
As time goes on those memories fade. But these photos will be here forever for this family to look back and remember and feel the joy they had during this season of their life.
I would love to document your family. Bring your silly, fun, crazy family and just be you! No fancy clothes no pretend smiles just your authentic self. I am up for anything. If you would love to preserve the season your family is in contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the last set I promise. I was packing up to go and the kids were secretly scraping ice from there skates to surprise dad!!! I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did taking them.

This month's topic is faceless. I had a hard time coming up with something our house has been a little crazy. But going through some of my images I knew just what I had to do. We have new dog and his name is Franklin. Well he is full of energy and several times I have tried to take his picture and unless he is sleeping he is just a blur.
He has brought some amazing energy and new life into our home. I am not so sure the older resident dog Hank would agree. Franklin follows him around yelling and nipping at him most of the time. And Hank is really just a grumpy old man. He is beginning to come around a little and every once in a while Hank will play but he doesn't want to let you in on the fact that he really does like Franklin.
Please take the time to see what has done with the faceless theme.
I got to choose this months theme shoes. When I chose this theme I thought it would be fun and light hearted. But then as the weeks went by and I was observing all the shoes in my house the challenge took a surprising turn.
This first image was my favorite. I love everything about this image the texture, the shades the content. These are my teenage daughters shoes. When I look at these shoes I see the scuff marks and dirt but I also see all the things ahead of her and how all those scuffs and dirt are going shape her into an wonderfully amazing woman.
The shoes below belong to my oldest son. He is very rarely here anymore. His life is consumed with work, friends, girlfriends all the things that a 20 year old does. When he is home we cherish every moment. I miss his company but watching him change into this amazing adult is very inspiring.
These shoes belong to my youngest. These are his new light up shoes. He loves them so much her turns the lights off to conserve the batteries. He had been complaining about his toes hurting so off to get new shoes 2 1/2 sizes bigger. I felt so bad one of those mommy guilt moments.
By looking at their shoes it has reminded me how many moments we let just go by with out taking notice. I don't think I have ever really studied my kids shoes before but I plan on not staying so "busy" any more. These are the things I want to remember their little shoes (and not so little shoes) and how they change with how they grow. I wear chucks blue with hot pink laces and I will probably be 80 wearing my chucks.
Now go over to Sarah another wonderful photographer and see what she has done with our Shoe theme.
Where should I begin with this couple? Spring is a long time friend from back when I worked at Nortel 13 years ago Once I left Nortel we went separate ways. But for the past few years our friendship has found its way back. And I am so thankful because she have been a voice of reason for me, an amazing role model, and helped me find courage that I never knew I had. I feel like a little kid when we are together and I am sure the people around us would agree. She is also an amazing artist.
She is my partner in crime. We set out to drive aimlessly and take pictures and always find some interesting and crazy stuff. We will soon be driving to San Antonio together and there is no telling what trouble we will get into. We may need someone to come bail us out for trespassing into an abandon building.
I wanted to do something special for her so I asked if I could photograph her and her husband but the catch was that I was going to ask them a series of questions during the session. I wanted to capture their fun loving spirit and the loving relationship that they have. One of the questions that I asked was does one of you have a hidden talent? I already knew from Spring that Sam could juggle so I surprised them with some juggling balls.
We all have to be adults but sometimes it is nice to let that inner child out to play. I would love to capture your inner child. Click the link to book your session.

I love to have family come and stay with us. It can be exhausting and sometimes you need a vacation after it is all said and done.
But the memories that have been made and the lessons that have been learned are priceless. My son had to learn to share and for a 6 year old that can be very hard. He also had to learn to change his routine a little. And this mamma had to have a lot of patience with a little one that was up too late and up too early.
I will remember the late night conversations, the toys everywhere and the movies and flower arranging in Nana's backyard. And the time that I got to spend with my aunt learning all the things about her that I never knew. I am so thankful for our time together and I can't wait till we do it again.
Family time is all to often cluttered with things of the past and allowing the everyday things to get in the way. There are so many things in our life that Life is too short not to enjoy your family.
I would love to document your family time. Those small precious moments that happen when ours lives are so busy. Let me have a couple hours of your time to slow down and feel the grass on your feet the sun on your face. Be in the space of your family and nothing else. These are the moments that you will remember forever. I would love to capture those forever moments for you. Let's get your family time booked.

Taking my son to the grocery store is a feat. I think he gets sensory overload. Yes, I am the parent whose kid is running around trying to be helpful but all over the place and going back for as many free cookies as he can get. Or maybe it is because when my husband takes him shopping they play hide-n-seek. I am just waiting from them to get banned from the supermarket.
When my aunt came to visit and a trip to the grocery store was a must (I have no food in my house I am not a great cook. We eat a lot of sandwiches). She was kind enough to make us spaghetti and meatballs and not the frozen kind! But I think by the time we got done with our 45 minute trip she was ready to go and hide.
The only camera I had was my phone so these are a little out of focus here and there but I figure isn't life that same way? This is a moment of chaos and crazy that to me was just beautiful and fun. I am pretty sure the other shoppers didn't feel the same way or the worker that had to get a ladder to get my son's flying lion from the top of a shelf. But I saw cousins getting to know each other and kids being silly and fun.
My child is the one with no shoes.
Thank you aunt Carolyn for enduring the madness at my house and I hope we didn't scare you away.
