this year’s favorite reads: toddler edition

Around here, when we find a book we love, it gets requested over & over & over & over, until Mom/Dad can’t take it anymore.  Overheard last night:  “What should we read tonight?’  SPEEDSTER COLIN!  ‘But we’ve read that every single night this week… pick something else.’  SPEEDSTER COLIN! At least the kids have a...

one year!

Jillian, You are one whole year old now, baby girl!  And I know it’s cliche, but I have no idea where the time went.  I really feel like it was just yesterday that I was passing my due date and waiting for your arrival.  What a year it’s been, baby girl! It seems every time we’re...

eleven months!

Jillian, You are eleven months old now, baby girl!  That means there’s only one onesie left in the box.  Whew.  I can’t go there right now.  Because, in this moment, I just want to cherish every last drop of you as an infant (you’ll be my baby forever, but I believe the term infant officially expires on...

ten months!

Jillian, You are ten months old now, baby girl!  And these were definitely the hardest photos to capture yet!  I put you in your monthly onesie, laid you down onto the usual blanket and instantly you were OFF!  Crawling away before I could even lock my camera focus.  (You can crawl on your knees now,...

nine months!

Jillian, You are nine months old now, baby girl!  I can’t believe you’ve already been in our world for as long as you were in my belly!  This morning, while I was feeding you, I suddenly remembered the moment of our 20 week ultrasound when we found out you were a girl.  It was such...

eight months!

Jillian, You are eight months old now, baby girl!  Your life is much faster paced than your brother’s was as this stage and YOU WANT IT TO MOVE EVEN FASTER!  The army crawling has gained speed, but, if you had it your way, you’d be running alongside your big brother.  Soon enough, Jilly Boo, soon enough....

seven months!

Jillian, You are seven months old now, baby girl!  We are starting to get into a good groove and time is flying.  Speaking of ‘flying’… that hair of yours.  Keeps growing straight up!  (no seriously, I wet it down a few minutes before these pictures were taken). As your Granny Janny says, you’re a ‘mover...

six months!

Jillian, You are six months old now, baby girl!  One half of a year.  Wow.  There is something a little unbelievable about that. This month was our toughest month.  Somewhere around four months, you forgot how to sleep.  While we stumbled through sleepless nights and catnaps, my happy baby slowly faded and you became crankier & crankier....

little miss lily

Seattle may be a big city, but sometimes it feels like a small town.  Especially when I meet new clients that are related to previous ones!  Little miss Lily here is actually little Luke’s cousin! Back in December we met in my favorite Lincoln Park for a fun-filled morning.  Having grown up in the midwest, it still...

jesse & henry

Family photos at a Christmas tree farm?  Yes.  Always yes.  This was my first photoshoot after maternity leave and I LOVED IT!  Jesse & Henry’s parents wanted some updated family photos for their holiday card so we drove out to Trinity Tree farm in Issaquah, even though we are both West Seattle families.  The drive was...

day in the life [march]

Wow.  Exactly four months have passed since my last day in the life post.  It felt really good to bust out the big gun [my ‘fancy camera‘] and take some everyday life photos again. March 9, 2015 [Colin is 2 years old, Jillian is 5 months] Good morning! Lately, Colin starts his day by standing at the corner...

five months!

Jillian, You are five months old now, baby girl!  And already I can hardly remember our family without you in it. The most noticeable change this month has been your activity level.  Gone are the days of setting you on the bed & knowing you’ll still be there if I blink.  Now, I lay you...

happy valentines!

Not feeling the love this year?  Think Valentines Day is a stupid holiday?  By the time you scroll to the bottom of this post, I think you’ll have a change of heart. Go on… I dare you. Still not ready to ‘be mine?’  Continue… HUGE thanks to My Three Little Birds (my favorite West Seattle...

this year’s favorite reads: toddler edition

My two-year-old loves books.  I suspect he gets it from me [we established earlier this week that I read a lot of books] because his Dad mostly reads a lot of sports scores… and work email.  But every night before bed, the two of them settle into our big gliding chair and read bedtime stories. This...

two months!

Jillian, You are two months old now, baby girl.  It truly felt like last week that I was taking photos of you in your one month onesie, and here four whole weeks have gone by.  Life has been moving in warp speed since you arrived [and I thought things were flying by with just your brother…...

colin is two

Colin, What an incredible year.  A transformative year, for both of us.  I think back to 12 months ago and you were just a baby.  And now, you’re a a little boy.  There are no more onesies in your wardrobe.  Your shoes all have thick soles. The bottles have been pushed to the back of...

day in the life: november

This ‘day in the life’ was a lot harder to document than prior ones.  My hands are full these days and it was a little complicated to juggle the toddler, newborn, and camera.  I was really surprised when I uploaded everything and found I had more photos to share than I did from any of...

one month!

This time things are different.  I was frightened about welcoming a second baby.  I remembered how much I struggled when I first became a mother.  How much work it was to take care of a newborn.  The exhaustion.  The physical pain of recovering from delivery.  Oh, and breastfeeding is NOT EASY.  I didn’t feel like...

day in the life: september

In my last day in the life post, Colin was 18 months old and had just started walking.  Even though our routine has stayed pretty similar, I knew I wanted to fit in one more ‘day in the life’ before we welcome another little one.  I have a feeling I’ll enjoy looking back at these photos, remembering simpler days,...

mommy & me mini sessions

This year I celebrated Mothers’ Day with Mommy & Me Mini Sessions.  And they were SO MUCH FUN!  It was a joy for me to photograph the obvious love these moms have for their kiddos, as well as the sweet affections returned from their little ones.  [I know, I know… having a kid of my...
