Personal | Caleb, One Year

One.

I was thinking I’d write a sweet little note, but there’s just something about your youngest baby turning one that sticks a dagger in your heart. I keep thinking back to the days leading up to his birth, what a rollercoaster it was. Pre-labor that lasted *what seemed like* forever; being sent home from the hospital twice because it wasn’t time yet...and when it finally was, this little man still kept us waiting. If I’ve ever done a hard thing in my life, growing and birthing this boy is it.

But oh was he worth it all. He’s the best snuggler, and he’s almost always smiling and happy. He’s so easy-going -- until he decides he wants something, then he’s incredibly stubborn and determined. Just like his brother. Watching the two of them develop a relationship melts me into a puddle; they love each other dearly.

I could go on and on all day, but I’ll treasure it all up in my heart. Caleb, I love you so much. Happy birthday, little man.

Family | The L Family

This family is a pretty special one. Lauren and I have known each other since kindergarten (which is starting to make me feel old). We were kind of out-of-touch for a stretch because of where life took each of us, but as our seasons started to match again we reconnected.

We got married within a couple years of each other, and now we have kiddos that are only months apart. Hers are pretty cute, aren’t they?!

Is that not the sweetest father-son fist bump?!

Thanks for having me capture your adorable family, Jeff & Lauren. You guys are so fun to be around! I hope you enjoy these photos for many years to come. :)

Anniversary | My Parents

A quick photoshoot for my wonderful parents. They’re goofy, outdoorsy, and love each other more every year. (Truly, they do!)

I love being their daughter!

Thanks for letting me take your photos, Dad & Mom. :)

Personal | Kiddos

Our boys are growing right up! I took a break from posting here every month, though I’ve continued to snap photos of these cuties. Here are some recents — aren’t they cute?!

There’s something about black & white photos, they’re so timeless and classic. I’m loving them more and more.

Love my babies!

Personal | Caleb

Would ya look at that smile!

Somehow six months went by with this little man!  He is so precious to us.

He and Levi are best buds; watching them together is one of the sweetest parts of my day.  What a gift it is to have these two boys as our sons!
