crushing the cake…




He started out a little unsure, but soon came to trust these intentions were pure.









A couple was blessed with this beautiful boy,



He no less provides them with nothing but joy




Dane has cooed and has wooed, and has thrived his first year,







You not only smashed it- you crushed it my dear!!



Congratulations little man!!   Way to go!  xxoo

This memory is one to treasure…

When your littlest man



the pride and joy of your littlest family…..{beautiful fun little family I will add}



this littlest man who treasures his momma….



has just become the biggest boy and will forever always be.  And he will share you.  Reluctantly.  For the littlest sister he will love and adore.  Forever.


Just loved this session….

Just loved this family….

Congratulations to all of you!!

Beautiful pictures, beautiful Emily!

The best of.

No matter where you were or how long you had been apart, your cousins were always your best friends.  Time apart was time suspended.  And your laughter was just a hug away.      These little guys just melted my heart.  Best of friends and best of cousins.   Does it get more adorable or all American than this?  Uh uh. It  most surely does not.



I hope you are enjoying the “best of” everything.



life is….




Hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as this new little big sister.   Life is magic.  And there is no reason not to be your true remarkable self.  Let no one get in that way.  There have recently been reminders all around me (us) on just how quickly loved ones are taken from our side.  All the more reason to repeat what I said above.  Life is magic.  It is a gift.  Always be your remarkable self,  and not less than you can be.  Truth be told, this is more a message to myself, I guess, than to anyone.  So I am glad I am writing it down now to go back to again and again when I need to.   Kiss those close to you.  Pray for those who can’t do that right now.  And have a very very grateful Friday.   xxoo
