Category Archives: Happy Me

This summer has been filled with so many happy moments I haven’t been able to categorize and even think of publishing the images. I have to admit I kind of took a hiatus of taking thousands of photos of my family and doing nothing with them. While I was on maternity leave this summer I truly didn’t really touch my “big camera.” I solely depended on my iPhone to capture a lot. Do I regret it? Some times. Am I happy I lived the moments with my kids and my husband more than worrying about the perfect shot or the high standard of photography one would come to expect from a professional? Yes. I lived every single moment this summer. I looked at my kids with a full heart and I watched them grow more than I ever have. I regret that I didn’t take more real photos, especially of Cameron because he’s changed so much, but I know for a fact that my daughter and my baby didn’t miss my camera. We had  great summer. NOW. It’s back to school. One more year done for Madison. She’s starting her second year of Nursery. She loves her school and her friends so much! She’s learned an enormous amount and she’s not yet even 4! I have no one to thank other than the amazing educators at her school. Not only is she starting school tomorrow but she also started her first day of Dancing School! Her exact words when I asked if she had fun, “I loved it!”

Cameron is starting at his venture at the school as well. This moment is bitter sweet. I know he’s going to be getting the best care next to having mommy and daddy around but it’s still hard. I was with Madison every day for the 1st year of her life. Cameron isn’t getting that same one on one attention for 12 months like his sister did. I can truly say I feel some guilt and I’ve been trying to spend more quality time with him as the days have gone on. Which I’m sure most can understand it’s very hard to get “quality” time in when you have a sensitive 3.5 year old little lady asking if it’s her turn to get love from mommy… Even though when I WANT to love her up she doesn’t need me.:)Either way I know it’s going to be a great day for my little man tomorrow. Tomorrow he’ll start making baby friends and learning how to be independent without his mommy. Tomorrow my entrance to my home will be exciting to hear about the day and read Cameron’s first “day care report.” I can’t wait to learn what he does differently when we aren’t around. Today and this evening to commemorate their back to school for 2016, I got out the big camera. I wanted to show how much of a bond these two have started to form. And show the world how much they’ve grown over the last 5 months.

One of the best things about these photos are the location! Our quiet new neighborhood and our beautiful new backyard. :0) Enjoy.




So it’s been a while since I’ve really blogged or put up any of my work but I can assure you it was for good reason. We’ve welcomed our newest addition to our family just five days ago! We like to call him Meatball because his unbelievably cute cheeks look like they are ready for you to take a nice juicy bite!  Here are a few of my favorite images from his first five days at his new home…
