Miss Ava {her first year video}

Ahhhh. Another first year baby done. We are always so excited to see them grow up, but when we go back and look at them as a tiny baby it pulls at our heart strings. Why do they have to get so big so quickly? We love when the whole family comes to every session during the first year because we adore seeing the whole family in the video. Watching Miss Ava grow up in her mom’s, dad’s, and big sister’s arms is totally sweet. I can’t get over how adorable she is with her...
The story behind the song, “O Holy Night”

The story behind the song, “O Holy Night”

Did you grow up listening to Paul Harvey and “The Rest of the Story” like I did? I loved his voice, it was a time-machine we traveled through the radio waves of the broadcast to a different place and learned something new. I usually listened to it at my dads cabinet shop over lunch. We all got quiet while we ate, and the familiar voice of Paul Harvey told us stories and narrated history and the present in a way that gave hope. I loved the stories and waited in anticipation for the...

Deck the Halls {from the lodge}

Decorating for the holidays one of my favorite things. It doesn’t matter how old I get I love pulling out the ornaments and reliving the memories of all of our holiday treasures. We decorate the Sunday after Thanksgiving in our house. We used to wait until after my son’s birthday (Dec. 8th!) but he started to beg to “do the tree!” so we do it now before his birthday…December birthdays are tough!   We have to check the lights. Every year I swear they work when...
Magic

Magic

Photography for me is magical. It gives me a chance yes to stop time and hold a bit of my kid’s innocence forever, but more than that it helps me to find ways to make ordinary moments magical. One may have looked in the room and said…”wow..you should dust!” but it looked like pure magic to me. The way the light hit every bit of dust that morning. Charles was getting ready to head outside (dressed way too warmly by the way) and just happen to be in the room when all of...
Miss Adeline

Miss Adeline

We had a great time meeting and photographing Miss Adeline and her family. Kim was even able to get some sweet video! Addi is two, and we love the independence that comes with this age. With two year old’s sometimes we have to get creative… take juice breaks, dance breaks where we all shake our booty, include a little “spike” dino in the pictures, and do whatever the toddler wants. We are a-okay with that because we want them to like us, and to have fun! We might not...
