This week brought kids finishing school, haircuts, wrestling, progress, and fun!  I am SO thankful to be part of LIGHTBOX STORIES and be inspired and encouraged by them to continue to tell my story.  Being a family and lifestyle portrait photographer I “sometimes” focus on documenting other people’s families through pictures, prints, art, and albums, and neglect to capture the memories of my own family:-)  This year I am trying to make sure that doesn’t happen:-)  AND as I keep challenging myself and shooting, I aim to improve my storytelling images so that not only does my family benefit, BUT you do too! It’s win-win!  Thanks for looking at the images of my life and reading my story!

Don’t know what I am talking about?  Check out the FIRST TWENTY-TWO WEEKS of my 365 project.


The last day of school.  We are SO thankful for friends and teachers!  We have been SO blessed this year!365_156_Blog157|365

Daniel LOVES to wrestle, and attack you!  Holden gets in on the action too.  Nowhere is safe!365_157_Blog158|365

You wanted your haircut, but wanted to wait until the end of school.  Shortly after you regretted it…but you have such a good attitude, now saying, “It will grow back!”365_158_Blog159|365

Your faces, usually they are cracking us up, but sometimes you catch us off guard with your soulful gazes.  I am so glad I caught this rare and beautiful glimpse of you.365_159_Blog160|365

Evenings are still spent at the house, but since you have learned to ride your bike, you join us, and enjoy it more:-)  I love this glimpse through the window of your brother riding and you in with us.365_160_Blog161|365

Today, just because it rained, and tennis was canceled we had pancakes, and hot cocoa.  I indulged you with whipped cream and sprinkles:-)  I love surprising you with sweets since, I keep them from you often.  You were happy!365_161_Blog162|365

Progress!  AND cabinets!  They look SO amazing thanks to Tom.  He didn’t plan to install them all, but he did, working tirelessly throughout the week to get them done so the counters could be measured!  It is exciting and I am SO grateful!365_162_Blog

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget to check back next week!

Like MY STORY and want me to tell yours?  Do you need new family images to tell that story on your walls, or in a book on your coffee table?  Are you looking at your kids and wondering, where the time goes, and how they got so big?  Do you want to celebrate who THEY are RIGHT now?  I would love to tell YOUR FAMILY’S story, and CAPTURE YOUR LIFE!   Send me an EMAIL, and we will grab a coffee and get to know each other!
