This month, AUGUST,  was SO busy!  Oh my goodness!  We had birthday camping trips, grandparents visiting, new school years starting, entered first and fourth grade,celebrated moving in, amongst other just everyday stuff!  And the month ended with a special friend’s baptism, what could be better?  I am LOVING capturing our life’s story, the good, the messy, and the boring, it is all part of who we are and where we are in life right now! That is why I am SO honored when I get to capture a snippet of your life, and stop time in the images I capture.  So that years from  now, or maybe just weeks you will look back and smile at who you were then, and remember to enjoy the beauty that is your life right now, even if it feels messy today!   The following are my favorite images of the month:-)  I hope you enjoy!


mud+boys…need I say more, California is experiencing a drought, so the reservoir we camped at was rather low…and rather muddy apparently.365_213_Blog

I love how these images let you see our life, our personalities and the beauty that I am learning to see and appreciate with my eyes.  I am thankful for the assignment to observe, capture and mostly be thankful for our days right now, and be challenged to see the beauty in the everyday.  I am SO excited for what the rest of the year will bring!

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our life!  Now PLEASE go and check out Amy of Sticky Mangos Photos month.  I love this group of photographers!  I am inspired and encouraged daily. AND don’t forget to check back next month as we post our images from September.  The year is going so fast!
