Miss M | Thirteen Months

Miss M is a full on toddler now – toddling from here to there – usually with her hands straight up in the air, either for balance or because she’s used to holding onto our fingers. She loves to eat, she’s a great sleeper, and she does pretty darn well traveling. She’s starting to be more opinionated too – don’t you dare grab her toys, spoon, or paci without a fight!

See how she’s grown over the last month, or compare her to her sister at this age.

A Fish out of Water

My Lil’ Miss K (age 4), just completed summer swim lessons. We hired a high school lifeguard to give her private lessons in our neighborhood pool. Best. Decision. Ever. It sure beats group lessons with 8-12 other students any day, especially when she’s nervous about putting her face in the water and thrives with one-on-one attention. Two months later, she is much improved and much more comfortable in the water!

Portrait Session | Anniversary Photos – Wedding Dress and All

This is the first couple I took “professional” photos for – engagement photos over a decade ago. Now, ten years later, I have the honor of shooting their anniversary photos – with Lauren in her beautiful wedding dress (it still fits!), and their three children. I love the idea of re-creating wedding photos to show what has changed, and what hasn’t, over the last decade. I may even steal the idea myself next year. 😉 Congratulations to Lauren and Justin on their 10-year anniversary, and thank you for your continued faith in me to capture your beautiful family!

Miss M Turns One

My baby is ONE! My emotions aren’t sure whether to be excited or sad about my littlest turning one today. I think it’s a mix of both. She’s had a busy week with 4th of July festivities, and she’s got a busy weekend ahead with her big birthday party. She’s now drinking cow’s milk from a sippy cup, climbing up everything (like up and over the couch), standing up from the floor, and taking a few steps! She’s starting to say more words with meaning now – it’s fun to have two-way communication with her!

Check out how she’s changed since last month. Since this is her last “first year” photo, I’ll be moving away from the rocking chair pics to photos standing with Daddy, like we did with big sis.
