Staci and Simon

“Mothers are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the Earth.” ~ Marjorie Pay Hinckley

A few days before I left Wildwood, I got a chance to grab a few shots of my photographer friend, Staci (Stacia Shaw Photography) and her young baby Simon. Just so precious.

“As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen”

Meet my handsome little nephew Ty. A strong little man who is at only 7.5 months very close to walking! He is well on his way to adventure, and I’m so happy when we get to see him and watch him grow!

Chase | one year

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
~Shel Silverstein

Chase is a beautiful boy with a bright future! Anything can happen, and he has great parents to help him learn that! As I edited these pictures from Friday, I could still hear his squeaks and squalls of excitement! He’s a happy boy and the world is full of adventure! Happy Birthday, Chase!!!

{sneak peek} CHASE | one year

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

I have been enjoying a cozy winter with my special kiddos, but now that its spring, the shooting season has begun!  I am overjoyed to have been able to kick off the spring portrait season with Baby Chase… he’s a whole year now (almost)!!  Holy cow!  And he is just so much cuteness and kissable chub in one little one year old body!  Look at this winning smile:

“I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.”
― Charles Dickens

Babies!  Ah!  They grow up so fast!  I loved seeing Chase again!  Half a year has passed and he is sooo adorable!  Still lots of yummy chub, deep blue eyes, a smile that will make you smile right back!  See for yourself!

“…and she loved a little boy very, very much -even more than she loved herself.” ~Shel Silverstein

My baby boy turned one this month!  It’s been a great year!  He’s such a fun little man and we all love him so much!  Here are the pictures I took on his birthday:

This awesome and adorable mustache cake was made by Leia over at Eat it and Say Yum!  I didn’t get to try any, but Kal demolished it!  He was so excited and he dove right in and got super messy!

The tie Kal is wearing is from What a Fancy Pansy.
