meet reilly!! she is super cool and has a great sense of style! i love that she is her own person and likes to pave her own way! she is ridiculously smart and self-motivated and that’s pretty amazing in my book!
i can’t wait for her senior session and just know she’s going to have some great ideas for her pics!
so happy to have you as one of my reps reilly!!
i’m going back a little! looking through images from the last couple of years, i realized this favorite family of mine never quite made it on my blog. their session was late in the year and it just must have slipped my mind during the crazy busy time of year!
the parents are so amazing which is why it isn’t a surprise that the kids are ridiculously awesome! i’m so happy to know them all!
beautiful little kenzie ~ quite the entrance she made! she created quite the stir because she wasn’t handling her arrival very well. however, she once she was here, she was completely perfect!
because the beautiful little thing was making everyone worry, i wasn’t allowed to photograph until she was all cleared ~ which thankfully, was right away!
this beautiful little guy decided that being scheduled to arrive on a monday ~ well, that was just a little boring for his taste! he chose saturday night instead! i’m quite sure mom and dad didn’t mind the slightly early arrival one bit!
thank you so much to the beautiful mom (of two now), vicky of blue daisy art photography for giving me the honor and privilege of documenting your story! scroll down and click play to see more!
let me first explain that i’m a bit overprotective of my kids. when i take those quizzes online about what kind of parent i am, i get the word helicopter back. my mom friends call me marlin — you know, from Finding Nemo. Whatever!
i’m trying to give my oldest (he’s 11) a little more freedom (not much) so i’ve been letting him do some things around the kitchen in the last several months. one thing he’s taken over is mixing pancake batter and then i will cook them — you know, because letting him be around a hot stove is too much for me. so this morning, his more experienced friend (who has older siblings) was here and said he cooks pancakes at his house. so i let them go. they successfully made pancakes for themselves and the two 7-year-olds as well! i was about 10 feet away in the next room (what did you expect)…
it was a success! now, the next lesson is cleaning up the mess afterward (though it really wasn’t too bad)…
it’s my march 2014 post for “the kids were here” ~ a project with other local photographers which is intended to help us document life’s everyday details (including the messes). life moves so quickly and our kids grow so fast and this project will help us always remember and appreciate our hectic and even a little chaotic lives as they are now. this project is also helping our group get to know each other even better so don’t forget to check out my friend jill gum’s post as well!
