She didn't want to wear the outfits I painstakingly purchased. Heck, she didn't want to wear shoes. She wasn't interested in meals. The only thing she wanted to do with great enthusiasm was take a bath in the hotel room whirlpool tub each night with her mermaid tail on (and meet princesses... and shop... and eat ice cream...). So we went with it. Clara is no[...]
I remember texting Whitney about our potential plans to go to Mexico for a family vacation. "Go, go!" she encouraged. Gosh, but the possibility of missing her second daughter's birth weighed heavy. Fortunately that little love was in sync with the idea, too, as she arrived just before I left the country. I had the pleasure of not only meeting and photographing sweet J[...]
Ooooo... what a fun little morning with this sweet family, recent transplants from New Orleans.

I have loved documenting this fun family, and boy, do I laugh so much when I'm with them! Happy 1st, sweet B!
I remember the weeks leading up to my children's first birthdays vividly... so many shared stories that started with "remember when we..." as we counted down the days and hours. I caught myself doing the same with Harrison, the little love whose entrance I witnessed a year ago. It's emotional, isn't it? And insane how much happens in the first year... from a pooping, [...]
