Jimmy the Adventurer!

Had an awesome time with this little guy and his grandparents last weekend. We hung out on an airfield and inside this fantastic hanger with an odd dozen planes ranging from WWII to modern! Jimmy loves to fly, loves OSU, and loves his grandparents. It was really fun to be able to capture such a big part of Jimmy’s life and personality; here are just a few of the shots from our session!

Travis Gabriel

Once upon a time my little brother had a son… and this little baby boy completely, utterly, and masterfully stole all the pieces of my heart.

Travis, you are wonderful, and you are loved. Never ever forget it.

Stay incredible,

Ripples Daycare :: Littles Mini Shoot

Yesterday I had an awesome shoot at daycare with all these precious little kiddos. It was so much fun and I could hardly wait to show you a few of my favorite images. The littles were all so sweet and well behaved… we had a really fun time!

Baby hands and feet… so tiny and precious.

Caleb and CaLee are siblings so we did a few shots of them together. I love their coordinating Chucks!

Thanks to Ripples Daycare for letting me come and hang out with you all and take pictures. And also to my Buddie Rachel for coming up with the fantastic idea. =)

Stay beautiful,

Happy 11th Cake Day, Beka-Boo!

This is my baby sister.

Today she turned 11.

I can remember bringing her home from the hospital in a pink outfit with a bow and in a car seat. Or singing All The Pretty Little Horses to her as I rocked her to sleep. Or reading Peter Rabbit so many times that I memorized it. Or having tea parties with a plastic teapot that sang when you poured.

Sigh. I wish she was turning 4, not 11.

But anyway, she’s growing up, a definite little diva, and quite happy to be turning 11. This evening we did a mini shoot on the front porch to commemorate the occasion. Oh and the flower in her hair was actually one I made to put on her present, but she liked it and insisted on wearing it as a headband and making me promise to make her more.

She’s so easy to please. Seriously.

I love you, Beka. Thank you so much for being the reason I’m not the only girl in this family. Happy birthday!

Had a fantastic time shooting it up with this little guy last night. The weather is gorgeous this week and I am loving all the longer days and beautiful light.

Here’s a sneak peek of little man’s baby blues and contagious grins.
