This is the month that Graham decided that he wasn’t happy to just be sitting. It was frustrating to him watch Harper move and crawl and get wherever she wanted to go. He would sit and flap his arms up and down as hard as he could almost as if he was trying to fly. Poo guy! It’s tough being the youngest out of the whole crew! Graham’s 7th month included a big trip out to Arizona. His Aunt Emy went with us because this conference is where we get to see so many of our students and I need to be as present as possible while we’re there. It was such a gift to have Emy there! I didn’t document that trip on my DSLR but I did make sure that there are plenty of iPhone memories in the family Chatbooks!
Graham’s 7th month was from October 23rd until November 23rd so technically, the Halloween pics in my past post were supposed to be included in THIS post but you know what, it’s hard to keep the exact dates straight! ha! I’m hoping if we have a third baby here on earth, he/she will be born on the 1st of a month so that it’s easy to keep their monthly posts straight!!! Wishful thinking, right?!
I think one of my favorite things about this month with Graham has been watching him become so interactive not only with us but with other babies. At the United conference in AZ, he was constantly trying to touch Mason Olmstead and it was so cute! They’re bound to be buddies! I love hearing his cackle of a laugh and seeing how excited he gets when Evy gets close to him. He loves her and it makes my heart so happy.
Here are some key memories I want to remember from this month! :
Graham and his scrunch face!
Evy loved hiding from Uncle Corey in the bushes!
We love Mimi and Grandaddy so much!
Thanksgiving at Grammie and Paw’s house!
She loved this!
And she loved this too! You should hear the songs she “plays”!
Some of my favorite moments are evenings at home with the kids…..
Favorite from this month!
The best Dada!
Real life: Photographing a toddler
My family constantly reminds me of when I was worried she didn’t have any personality. ha!
What a little cutie!
He was obsessed with his tongue this day!
Oh hey cutie! “I didn’t do it, I swear!”
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
This beautiful wedding day took place in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just past the Virginia state line. Wild Goose Farm is a venue that I’ve never photographed before and let me tell you, it was a treat! We didn’t even have the sun join us for most of the day and yet we were able to capture beautiful portraits! Between the horses, old fences, stunning estate home, lily pad covered pond, old stone walls, rustic barn, open fields and a historic stone arch, I was in photographer heaven!
This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
