First post of the year – and first post in a looooong time – I decided to share a little peek of a beautiful birth story that I had the honor of shooting. It was my last session of 2014, and the first one to be shared in 2015 I hope you enjoy!
Andrew and Brittany asked me to photograph the birth of their son. I was nervous, and so excited! This is the first birth I’ve photographed, and it was truly an amazing experience. I love taking photo’s that have feeling. Photo’s that aren’t just pretty, but real. And honestly, a birth experience is real.
I tried to find the balance of being present, and making myself invisible while in the room with them. I captured so many emotions, so many moments, so many feelings, and I am incredibly happy with how they all turned out.
Brittany and Andrew, Thank you. Thank you for trusting me and inviting me to capture this special time in your lives.
These photo’s are part of a sneak peek that I sent Brittany. She gave me permission to post.
It’s so hard to believe that our biggest girl turns six today. I think I may always find it hard to believe, every birthday. It just seems like she is growing up so fast. Sometimes it feels too fast, like I catch my breath and think “Oh goodness! I must enjoy these days, the moments! Before long she will be doing her own thing….” And then she throws a fit about something and I no longer remember that she is growing up fast. Ha.
One of my favorite recent pictures of her. With her cousin and buddy, Jax.

Pumkins, changing leaves, cooler temps, soups and chili, our anniversary and Kennedy’s Birthday, holiday’s coming, and so much more… fall is here! And it’s my favorite season. But it’s busy!! Finding the balance seems to be a little harder this time of year. Which is one reason I haven’t blogged much lately. I feel like blogging is not so popular anymore, but I am hanging in there, not wanting to give it up just yet. So, here I am with a quick little post on a few things we are loving these days…
Cheeseburger Soup. This is a huge favorite with every single person in our family. I actually blogged about it earlier this year, but it deserves another shout-out, because anything that my whole family loves is a good thing! Click HERE for the recipe!
Artforkidshub.com This site is awesome! It has step-by-step video tutorials on how to draw different things. The kids love it and so do I! The guy who does the video’s always has a kid with him, and he is funny and keeps my kids laughing and engaged. Love it.
And lastly, a trip to the Pumpkin Barn did not disappoint….
I hope your fall is off to a fabulous start! Thanks for looking
Alicia chose our focus this time, and she explained that her idea was for us to take photo’s of things people would not find beautiful. Maybe something that would go un-noticed even, yet the photo itself grab the viewer. For us to really see the beauty in the everyday. Well I loved this focus. I often use a hashtag on instagram ‘seeing the beauty’. So I was excited to shoot that way for Click of the Wild. Because it’s a busy time of year, I honestly didn’t put time and effort into it like I wanted too. I got my shot while driving to a shoot with a friend, and the funny thing is, as we drove up on this scene she said “that looks awful!” at the same time I was thinking “cool”! haha! I told her and we laughed at how we saw two entirely different things!
These pine tree’s had been stripped of all their branches…
Now, click over and see what the other girls saw and captured on Click of the Wild. Thanks for looking!
