Comfort of Training Wheels

 

Soon it will be time to let go of the training wheels, but right now she wants that support. Although, I want her to learn to go without the support on her bike, I know that this is extra time I have with her needing that comfort of knowing she is not going to fall.  When we move on to the next stage, there will be cuts, bumps and bruises along the way, but I know it will add character and strength to my growing little girl.

As she grows, she will know that I will be her training wheels until she is ready to spread her wings.  I have plenty of time before then and I am hoping to soak every last bit of her experiences in.  JR-2961 JR-2987 JR-2988 JR-2992 JR-2993 JR-2995 JR-2996

Sophia’s 5th Birthday


Sophia is now 5! Sophia is now 5! SOPHIA IS 5?!?! Really?  Where did the time go?  She lost a tooth and now she is 5, what is going on?  Well, we took some fun shots of her for her 5th birthday, just so she can express her personality and what she is currently into.  Don’t mind some of her expressions and poses, I let her just go with the flow because every time I tried to pose her, well, she just did her own thing, and what better way to capture someone then actually just letting them be.  Not every hair is in perfect place, not every wrinkle is straightened out and not every pose is perfect, but that’s OK, because this is real life and this is who she is and this is who I LOVE HER as and why I LOVE HER so.  Leave it to Soph to keep it real! <3  This is who she is, this is what she loves, and that’s what I am going to love about her!

Happy 5th Birthday to my courageous little ninja turtle power girl! COWABUNGA DUDES and DUDETTES!  sorry no booyakasha here…let’s keep it old school.  🙂

Mecionis Family Photo Session

A new family! They were so cute!  These 3 kiddos are so sweet and funny.  The weather was especially nice this day and we were able to get some really great images.  It’s a good feeling when you like what you do and you like who you meet.  Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you all again!

Britt’s 3rd Birthday Session

It’s nice to just see a kid in action, doing what they love to do, playing, running, chasing, just plain ol’ having fun.  That’s what I got to do when I came to take Britt’s photos.  These photos are more of a representation of catching him in the moment and being able to look back at the things that he enjoyed doing as he turned the wee little age of 3.  Happy 3rd Birthday Britt!

Child Quality Time

Every day is a busy day and we all go through it.  Always wishing there was more time in the day to do all those extra things in life.  Well, this time around I decided to capture some moments of my littlest love painting and enjoying her activity.  I was even able to get myself in some shots, that’s a first.  We all need to take a moment though and capture those little bits and pieces of our lives that a occur and mean so much to us and especially the people in it, it keeps the memory alive.
Have a beautiful day!

Amelia’s Newborn Session

Newborn time! I was so happy to see this family again, thanks to a close friend of mine.  This session was all about capturing some images of baby Amelia(I love that name) and getting in some shots of her brother, Lucas and her.
I was able to snap a few shots as he played, read a book to his sister and gave her the tiniest of kisses.   What a pleasure!
