Good Luck next year Cameron…I know you are going to do great!

I knew when Caroline contacted me that she was going to need a unique session. I knew right away she was not a “flowers in the field” kinda gal, and I wanted to make sure she felt comfortable being who SHE is (since this is all about her after all). We had the best time hitting the playground and capturing her giant smile. She made me laugh several times–she’s has a very witty sense of humor. She plays many instruments in the school band and we wanted to include a little of that too. I think this session fit her perfectly!

It’s so awesome when a client comes back to me for another session. First, because I love that they were so happy they wanted to come back for more, and second because it’s so fun to see how much the kids have grown. These three are a hoot! I was shocked when the youngest just started talking to me…last time I saw him he wasn’t speaking in complete sentences! We had a great night. Enjoy…

Today I woke my kids up at 6:00 AM to watch the sun rise. This is definitely not common in my house (we are usually still sleeping until AT LEAST 8:30/9:00 AM most days!) We are having a great time all together on vacation this week (nap time right now).

As we watched the sun rise on this beautiful day I felt so blessed. God is good.
