Oh my goodness, I am so excited to share these photos with you. I don't even have a favorite. I have like 10 favorites. When Geraldine asked me several months ago to design her graduation announcements, and take her photos for the card.. I was so excited to get her in front of my camera. She is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out! And I was excited to celebrate this accomplishment with her too! After going to school, for what feels like forever, she has graduated with her Bachelors in Nursing and is now an RN! My friends are smart, people. And pretty. (P.S. Did I mention she's single! P.P.S. I can't wait to see who God has been holding on to for her!!) Whoa, tangent

If I haven't said it a thousand times already, Jess and I make a great team! So when she came to me with the idea of a vintage summer birthday party for her son's second birthday, back in probably November haha, I had many months to get excited to get started on the project. This time, she left it fully in my hands on what to do. She just gave me a photo of a lemonade stand that she wanted to make and then said go. I thought about it for a month or two—seriously, she always gives me plenty of time—and came up with using watercolor as a way of coloring in the invitation. And since her colors started as being yellow, gray and white, I thought a simple line art illustration would work perfectly. Just to show Jess the layout I wanted to go with, I sketched out a rough idea. Once she saw it, she suggested adding the pendant banners. Love! And then we also decided to add the blue and green to add some more color and make it more kid like. It was for a 2 year old's birthday party after all. I then traced the photo

Rachel and I had been racking our brains trying to come up with something unique for the little miss' 9 month photos. A few times Rachel had mentioned wanting to get a photo of Amelia in an old wash tub—like a photos she had of herself as a child—so that inspired our outdoor bubble bath session! But first, we had to get a few photos in her Easter dress! What I love most about having these sessions every 3 months is capturing the ever changing personality of a child. Mia loves to clap and gives these amazing crinkle nose smiles! And for awhile now she's been standing up—when holding on to anything she can, but holding mama's hand is definitely the sweetest! And now time for the bath photos! Again, I love how these capture Mia so perfectly. She's so observant, always looking down to explore everything within reach. And of course, once that new found object is within her little hands, in the mouth it goes! These last few remind me so much of Mia's newborn session when she would not leave her mama's arms. So so sweet! Baby Mia

When Lauren and I first talked about getting some new photos of them taken, all she wanted was to take them in the snow. So 2 weeks later, we all drove up to Big Bear, randomly stopping along the road to take some pictures. It had been awhile since the 4 of us had hung out, and I'm so glad my hubby was there with me to help us get smiles from his best buddy.   Seriously, isn't Lauren just gorgeous! The snow really suits her. :) This is by far my favorite photo of the day. And we stopped for one last photo on the way home
