I have one more of these posts. One. How is that even possible. My little guy is going to be ONE next month and I wish I could say that I’m planning a big first birthday for him but I’m not. I can’t! COVID-19 has struck and it has struck HARD. We’ve been quarantined at home for weeks now and we have no idea when it’s going to end. I’m thankful for our home, our family and that we have land where the kids can run around and really not feel the affects of this at all.
Graham will never remember this time in history. The only thing he may notice is that Evy had 40 people at her first birthday party and he’ll probably have 10… MAX…. because that’s the guideline right now. I hope our families will be able to get together to celebrate his first year but if not, I know we’ll find a fun way to celebrate with just us.
Graham has come out of his shell this month!!!! Here are some things that I want to remember from his 11th month of life! :
Wacky colors day at preschool and she was NOT feeling having her picture taken!
Learning how to cut with scissors with Grammie!
Kinectic Sand for the WIN!
Harper…. she is the cutest, most animated ball of chunk!
Just a random afternoon doing some yardwork… I have a feeling these images will be some of my favorites decades from now…. just a peek into our daily lives.
FRIENDS! Without PANTS!
Hanging out with Miss Erica while we work!
Making peanut butter energy balls!
Hanging with Miss Whitney!
Her love hurts sometimes.
This is one of my new favorite pictures of them….
Those blue eyes!
Quick play date with Sisi!
Bokeh Boy came home for a little while and Graham LOVES him…. but also grabs his face and Bokeh is NOT a fan of that!
This was the beginning of COVID-19…. thank goodness for these cars!
This bounce house was 110% worth the investment. We got it for Evy’s birthday party off of Amazon. It fits in a duffle bag and blows up in literally 1-2 mins!
Adventure walks with Mimi have resumed. We sure did miss her while she was gone after her stomach surgery.
Emy and I wore these dresses when we were this age! Seeing Evy and Harper in them made Mimi’s day!
Harper: “Ah! I’m naked!”
Harper: Gotta cover herself up!!!
These just melt me. I love him so much I can hardly stand it!
Joe Joe has started his own Transformational Coaching business and we’re so proud of him. We’re also SO thankful that he’s around all of the time now! These pictures are such a beautiful representation of the little moments he doesn’t miss anymore.
Quick family portraits during COVID-19!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
