< family >

We had a case of some stomach bug these last few weeks, so I'm just finally getting around to getting these done. I'm sorry for the delay!

< sisters >

I've mentioned a few times that my sister is my best friend. And it melts my heart that my little girls are starting to be best friends. So it's always special for me when I get to photograph that relationship. I love these little girls. And I'm so happy for big sister that she has a new baby sister to share with. That is a gift.


< no place like ... >

... home. It's amazing to me that we only lived in Elkhart for 2 years because whenever we visit, it feels like we're going home. It's not really the city, I guess, but the people we get to spend time with. And the fact that our first 2 children were born there probably has something to do with it, too. Whatever the reason, that's where we go every year for Thanksgiving, and I'm so grateful for these wonderful people in our lives. And I love watching their kids grow up, even if I basically only get to see them once a year. Our kids call them cousins, and why shouldn't they be? My Asian sister-friend and her boys look like they could be related anyway:)

Love you guys. Let's definitely get together before Thanksgiving next year.

< sweet heart >

Where have I been, you might wonder? Life has been a bit of a whirlwind for my family these part few months, and unfortunately, my photography has had to take a bit of a backseat it all. I've picked up my camera and taken pictures, don't get me wrong. I wouldn't be me without it. But I haven't been able to shoot for others much lately. So I was overjoyed this past weekend when one of my best friends came to visit on her way back up from visiting her parents, and I got to take pictures of her gorgeous little girl. And I think we all know how much of a sucker I am for a little baby girl with curls. And not only that, this girl has the most chill, easy going personality. Smiley, too! With the softest, pudgiest, squishy baby cheeks. Oh, how I love babies. I think she and my boy are destined to be best friends. After all, their mommies are. They have no choice;)

< angel baby >

This little baby girl is the new little sister to this sweet family of kids I got to photograph over a year ago (twice!).

This little girl was such an angel during our session. She is 7 weeks old and still slept the entire time, even with wardrobe changes and lots of moving around. And with her perfect little feminine features, I had so much fun! It was sad when it was time for me to go home (and feed my own little one;)).

Congratulations on your beautiful new addition! She fits right into your well-behaved group of children;)
