This fourth month has really made us realize how much this little girl is changing. The way she looks, the way she interacts, the way she laughs…. it has all changed! I think this is my favorite stage yet! She’s officially moved away from the “fragile” newborn stage. She has been holding her head up since month two, but now she’s less wobbly!! I love seeing her sit straight up, and I’m so thankful that developmentally, she’s thriving! This past month has made me so thankful for her JOY! She smiles at EVERYONE. Her smiles, her giggles and her little personality that are shining through just melt everyone’s hearts.
We love for our friends and family to get to spend time with her because she’s usually happy, smiley, and interactive whenever she’s around other people or out in public! She thrives in social settings (Praise the Lord!) and seems to like noise and staying busy. She still does great riding in the car, sleeping, eating and gaining weight! I mean, have you seen her cheeks?! Wow.
This month she attended another KJP workshop, two weddings, and a couples’ cookout at our house! She tends to be the star of the show… unless of course cousin Micah is around.. then they share the spotlight!
That was one thing that was so special this fourth month. Micah and Emy basically lived with us for three weeks! So Evy and Micah had so much time together, and that means LOTS of pictures!!!! It’s hard to explain how much we love these little people. They have completely changed our family dynamic for the better. Everyone loves getting together, but it’s even more fun when you get to hold the babies!!
So here are some things I want to make sure I remember about month four! :
All of these are from Corey and Morgan’s wedding!!!
“The cousins” from Illinois came for Corey’s wedding and got to meet the babies!!
For those who say “She’s ALWAYS happy”… that’s not true! Here’s proof! Micah don’t lift her dress up! Or eat her arm!!!! She loved meeting her Great Aunt Susan! Evy and her Grammie! This is one of my favorite outfits she owns! Julie Paisley, you have amazing taste! From Ben and Ashley’s wedding! Ha! Her first time in a walker!! She was super alert and excited about it! Not quite as excited about her sunglasses! But loves her hat from Aunt Charlotte! She was “talking” here…. AKA…. screaming. Bokeh doesn’t like her new found voice! More talking…. Knox bear! Gotta keep an eye on these two!!! One of her last good naps in this lounger! She’s outgrown it! But honestly… new mommas, we LOVED this thing!!!! What a cutie! Knox ate his first “real” food at our house!!! Knox ate his first real food while Evy prayed in the living room. haha Her hands! MICAH! What a perfectly symmetrical little face! This may not seem super special, but it is to me. I knew that this was her last night sleeping next to me in a bassinet and in a swaddle, and so I made sure I had my real camera there to capture her sweet smiles in the morning! Micah is sweet… but watch out when he’s hungry! You’ll notice a theme here…. Lots of Michael and Evy naps! Knox came to visit a few times! Front porch sittin! Talks with Grandaddy! First time on the boat! Wind blown! She is now in love with Sophie! The sweetest! Oops! Man down! Hahaha!! Micah!
Kiddie pool time! Grabbing things! Evy was dedicated at Church on Father’s day!! She was dedicated alongside 4lb twins… so she looked huge!
Michael’s father’s day gift! So cute! This sadly describes their relationship. Bokeh Boy just can’t seem to come around!
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
