As you can see, I had a busy weekend taking photos! Before we started this family portrait session, we commented on how unfortunate it was that the trees had barely started turning. But check out this first photo – we found the perfect tree. I loved photographing this family – chasing around the boys in their element. This is why I’m a lifestyle photographer!
I don’t know about you all, but this is exactly how I feel after Christmas and New Year’s. After all of the celebrations are over and the decorations are put away, it’s still freezing outside and it still gets dark too early. After January 1, I’m always ready for spring!
The post-Christmas blues is part of the reason I haven’t blogged much in the last week. It’s also taken me quite a while to sit down and sort through all the holiday photos. This year, in an effort to not make blogging become chore, I’m not going to set any goals about daily blogging or photography. I’m merely going to blog when I’ve got something good to share. Some of those posts may be quality photos that my loyal blog followers will enjoy, and other posts will be snippets of my life that my real-life friends will enjoy seeing. (After all, the top blog posts of the year where about purchasing our house and re-doing our dining room – neither of which produced great photos.
Happy New Year!
Our (real) Christmas tree this year! I know white lights are classy, but we still love the colored ones.

My husband and I had the best time exploring Moses H. Cone Memorial Park on our fall engagement vacation a few years ago. It was the day after we got engaged, and I was in heaven – with both the gorgeous views and anticipation for what the future held.
Why, hello little guy!
I’m thoroughly enjoying the bright sunny skies and warm temperatures. Yesterday I went for a run through several neighborhoods near my home, and I got to enjoy the scenery with everyone’s flowers and trees blossoming. (Side note: I’m not looking forward to temps plummeting into the 30s later this week.)
It’s been just over four months since I returned from a mission trip to Haiti. It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies and how much I miss it. I just finished my photo book from the trip, so the experience has been on my mind a lot lately. You can learn more about the trip here. I hadn’t posted this photo yet so I thought I’d share it with you today.
