the {hand-me-down} bike

Got this swell bike last weekend from another family — their kiddo was too big for this cute, colorful three-wheeler and Fella became the *proud* new owner. He loves this thing!!! THANK YOU R Family!!! :)

Although moving comes with its challenges, it’s freed me from my hectic photographer + mom schedule and I’ve been focusing on photographing the “little things” with my kiddos every couple days.

I truly missed capturing the day-to-day lovelies. Freezing the little moments that might not seem important now, but will be even next week, when one stage or phase turns into another. :)

I think of all the little stages Fella goes through, all seemingly sports related. He’ll walk around with a lacrosse net for an entire week, swim goggles the two weeks after that, a golf club, golf tee AND ball the next week, and so on. We’ve had phases with rubber shark boots, hats (like dad!) every day, AND sunglasses 24/7. I absolutely love it and embrace his individuality. :)

For me, and for memory’s sake, I wanted to capture the newness of the bike. How excited and cool he felt perched up on the colorful plastic. How he put his golf ball in the lift-up seat and off he went (making sure it was in there every so often). SO glad I did. :)

And in unrelated news, {HOLIDAY SESSIONS are completely full for Phoenix in October}. If you’d like to be put on a wait list, just email me and let me know asap! You never know!!! I’m going to be putting together a Dallas holiday schedule pretty soon, too!

We’re off to Cali on Wed, where we have lots of family to visit with, Peach’s Bday to celebrate, and some extra-fun time with some AZ friends who we love dearly. I’m having a photo session with a family on AND near the beach and I’m absolutely THRILLED!!! I was drooling when mom wrote me and said they love to LOVE, hula hoop, ride bikes & eat snow cones. Sounds like my kind of family…AND guess what they’re bringing to the beach??? YOU’ll have to stay tuned to find out!

California = beach, family, friends, photo shoot, cooler weather (ahhhhh!), and FUN! Can’t wait!

More fun blog things to share…images, stories, PLUS something from the past that I’m going to start up again…

You’ll just have to come back in a couple days!
Have a super day! ~m
