family at play | celebrating adoption

Just wrapping up this super fun session. :)

I am going to get a little sappy here and say that I feel so fortunate that I’m able to capture candid moments like these.

Look at how little C is looking at her dad as he spins her round and round at the park — adorable grins like that don’t just come from saying “cheese.” And the little dimpled darling (oh how mom said she wanted those captured!) smiling away and just having a grand ol’ time as mom pushes her on the swing. And lastly, some guy time as father and son see who can go higher, higher, HIGHER, on the swing (and breaking out in giggles during the attempt). Families just don’t get pictures often enough — I’m guilty of the same thing — but what a memory.

When I got my family pictures done this season, I was in awe of what I saw. Things I always do with my kiddos (those candid moments where I nuzzle, squeeze, smooch, and laugh with them) are now recorded. We have images of our love in full force, which is such a gift.

I want all of my clients out there to know that I *LOVE* that I’m part of your history — capturing moments — and that I take it incredibly seriously.

Now to change the tune a little…
I have one more photo shoot scheduled for December and then some family fun time for me. :) My kids need it, hubby needs it, & I absolutely need it. January is almost booked, too! Only two photo shoots available — contact me if you’re interested!

Have one super day. We’re off to get a pic with Santa, to do some shopping AND spend some time with Mimi. Woo hooo! ~m

OH…and my sis will be out here again. Any funkTASTIC photo shoot ideas for us? We like different, you know! :) IF, your idea is chosen (OR you can send me a fab location to try out if you don’t have an idea, per se) THEN I’ll send you a $10 Starbucks gift card!!! Yesssss….. You can comment or send me an email at by the end of the day to be eligible for a DELISH gift card. I KNOW it’s cold out there for most of you, so this is a necessity! :)
