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!

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!”
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!
