Spencer Family Isleworth Shoot

I had the great opportunity to photograph this beautiful couple on the beautiful grounds of Isleworth. It was a combo to create a masterpiece.

And who can resist their precious little girls.

Thank you so much guys for a beautiful evening. I'm amazed at how long the girls lasted at so many different locations. It was one of my favorite shoots to date! I hope to see you again soon!

Mango teething

When Boston was a toddler and starting to teeth I gave him the seed of a mango and he LOVED it. Ever since then it has been my kids favorite thing to teeth on and Sydney followed right along like her brothers. It might be messy but it sure is fun!

Church Shoot

I had the great honor of getting to do photo shoots for all the families at First Baptist Windermere. It was very fast paced and no time to really pose people and get them into the positions I would have liked or I never would have gotten threw the almost 200 couples in a few hours. But they still turned out great and I'm excited to share them with all the families.


I wanted to share a game with you that we love at our house. It's called Hyper Dash. Not only is it a super fun game for the kids but they can play it by themselves or with others, it makes them active as they run around, and it helps learn colors and numbers. In the picture above I had Asher put them all close together but usually they spread them across the room and chase down the one they need to touch. We have had this game for many years and it never gets old.

Making journaling a priority

Wow life is moving so fast for me right now that it all seems to be such a big blur at moments. People often ask me how in the world I have time to do a blog with everything else going on in my life and the answer is very simple. If I don't make time to do it I feel like life is quickly slipping threw my fingers like sand. And once the sand has fallen there is no way to remember the grains I was just holding onto. Once I have put something into writing it just feels more like it really happened and I'm not as worried I might forget it. Especially now since it feels more and more like I'm losing brain cells with each night of homework. (It's sometimes hard to believe I was once very good at Calculus and took AP classes in high school.)

I saw a notebook at Target that had the cover above. I had to take a picture of it because it summed up my writing in a way I had never really thought about before. "We write to taste life twice." Ahhh....it's so sweet. And here I have been running a race with school starting, new therapies and diagnosis with the kids, my photography business, starting to shoot for Disney, 4 kids (really that one alone is enough).

There's many nights I sit down lately with a stack of things to do that would put anyone on medication and the last thing I feel like doing at the moment is adding blog writing to it. But if I don't the tension builds in me. I can feel the stress strangling me. I worry about losing moments, forgetting the little things the kids do. And then I realize that it's been several days since I've written and recorded the amazing moments in my life. I'm so blessed with so much.

I do hope that my crazy rambling helps you in some way. If you aren't recording your daily moments I really encourage you to do so. If it's only a few sentences each day. You will cherish them in the future.

So write people!

Take the time.

You will be happy you did and one day your kids will thank you!
