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.
I was gone speaking at a conference and I got a text with a video of him moving that first knee. By the time I came home two days later, he was a mover and a shaker. It’s so bizarre whenever one of our kids hits the phase where we place them in one spot and then find them in a completely different ROOM a few minutes later. We knew he would crawl early because he prefers to be standing these days and he’s more active than ANY of the other kids. He’s SO active in fact that he would rather be exploring the world around him than eating. Nursing is a struggle. Is not even that he doesn’t want to nurse, it’s that he doesn’t want to commit to being still even to nurse because he doesn’t like being still for a bottle either!! It’s a battle but he’s getting chunkier so all is well.
Rhett, you’re our “rally” kid… you can get happy even when you’re exhausted. You can be so far past bedtime and still crack a smile at someone who smiles at you. You are so independent but yet towards the end of this month, you have become very aware of when I leave you and it’s both precious and challenging. :) You’re so strong… you’re so alert and aware of everything around you… you seem to love being where the action is!!! We love you little buddy! This season of life is fast paced and challenging with all three of you but we’re loving it. We’re tired and exhausted most days once 8pm rolls around but we wouldn’t trade you guys for the world!
When I’m scrolling on Instagram or looking through images after a shoot, some images just stand out and capture my attention more than others!
I don’t know if I have ever photographed a more gracious bride in the most horrendous heat! Seriously, Kelsey is a literal angel on earth. She brought her entire family to Virginia from South Dakota for this portrait session and was so incredibly kind even in the midst of 100 degree heat and humidity!
Lenses are NOT cheap, so when you invest, you want to make sure you’re choosing the best option!
If you think about a wedding day and the part that makes you cringe is having to interact and direct the groomsmen, I get it.
This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen, but the timeline didn’t quite pan out like we had planned.. The rings got lost, hair & makeup went long, storms were rolling in and there were some stressful moments!
You’re not going to believe this but this session was probably our easiest DC engagement session to date! We had glow, no crowed, a beautiful setting and the most wonderful couple!
