Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
While I may not be able to capture everything cute and fun that is happening with my big camera these days, I still bring it out here and there when it feels right. I really enjoy capturing my children in the season of life that we’re in right now. I can already look back on our past family albums and enjoy the in between “life moments” that make up our current reality as a young family right now. It’s the unprompted, unposed, un-curated pictures that end up being my absolutely favorites!!!
This blog post isn’t just of Rhett’s sweet face, it’s a visual documentation of what our overall life looked like his first month!! I think when I look back at the past four weeks, I think about how fast they have flow by! It seems like we just came home from the hospital a few days ago but here we are with three kids!! It’s been challenging, but more than that, it’s been so much fun. I love seeing Evy and Graham love on their new brother and want to see him every single morning. There are so many things that I want to remember from this first month as a family of 5 so here we go! :
THINGS I WANT TO REMEMBER:
Christmas eve with a three day old!!! It was the year of the trampoline!!! The Christmas Eve Christmas story with Grandaddy! Corey and Momo meet Rhett!!! Oh Harper!!! The whole crew! The sweetest! I take pictures with my real camera for the 2% chance that I capture images like this…. I love this! Micah’s birthday!!! Momo’s parents (Greg and Donna!) got to meet the babies! This is such a GRAHAM photo! Please notice Evy dancing in the background…. I cherish these photos of Evy before her accident and she lost her teeth! Favorite picture of 2021 so far! Fake sleeping!
Please don’t miss that Graham “shirt pull” by Dada. We can’t trust him! He just loves Rhett a little too intensely!
Our sweet blue-eyed boy!
Rhett’s face! So unsure!!!
Annnnnd he got licked. ha! Now we know why he looked so worried!
Oh my sweet girl…. you had such a rough week. You busted out two teeth on a playground accident at the Lake House and I think I cried almost as much as you did.
Evy took this!
Thank goodness for our Mimi!
Merry Christmas to Dada!
First bath!!!! And I had so many wonderful/wild helpers!
The look on his face says it all!! She really wanted to help!
Brothers. I didn’t grow up witnessing this dynamic in our own family but I’ve heard it’s sweet!
Rhett you are such a precious little nugget!
I found her “reading” to him!
This was the night we drove down to Virginia Beach for 1.5 hours of a gender reveal for Corey and Morgan with all six kids and we would do it again in a heartbeat! Such a special night!!!
Harper turned TWO!!! k
I just can’t get over his sweet face!!
I just feel like I need to say…. prepare yourself. Prepare yourself for some of the most gorgeously styled details I’ve ever photographed. Prepare yourself for fun portraits and the sweetest ceremony and lastly, prepare yourself for some serious JOY!!
I bought the RF 100mm Macro because I wanted to compare it with my EF 100mm Macro! I’ve had the EF for YEARS but since I upgraded to the R6 last year, I’ve slowly been replacing my lenses with the RF models.
This Dover Hall Estate wedding was one for the books! Wow! Just incredible! From the planning to the florals to the dress and creative use of the property. It was just gorgeous!! We met Ryan and Danielle at their engagement session a few months back and we fell in love with them. They are truly as kind and thoughtful and sweet as they appear.
Oh you are something!!!! We are starting to lose you around the house! You crawl under tables, behind couches and soon, I just know you’re going to discover the stairs! You will walk laps around the ottomans and you LOVE to pull up on everything. I’ve caught you multiple times trying to splash in the toilet and it’s just hilarious… your brother or sister NEVER attempted that!
This day was one for the record books. It was the first time we had photographed anything at the beautiful Ivy Rose Barn and let me tell you, it’s a dream! It was also the first time that I was able to meet Sharon and Turner in person!! This is SO rare for me!! Normally we’ve already met our KJ Couples beforehand but thanks to the pandemic, we never had a chance to!
We’re in a quite a new season. Rhett’s seventh month has been the month where he decided to start moving! No cord, cup, small choking sized object is safe anymore! This happened literally the week he turned seven months and he has been on the go ever since.
