This first image couldn't explain it any better... Where has the time gone! There are no words to describe the joy this little man has brought to our lives. We love you Sawyer!
And you know the thing about lil brothers...
She's passed down many things to me. How to be a strong independent woman, memories of fun road trips to see family, hard work, making dreams come true, tons of evidence of bad hair days, and a serious love of photography... Happy Mother's Day to all the AMAZING mothers out there, putting in the crazy nights and sometimes endless days! A special thank you to my mom, and all the wonderful woman in my life! And a thank you to my two children who have turned my life upside down for forever more- I can't imagine my life without them. I just hope I will always be there to lift them up and teach them to follow their dreams.
And this is my third Mother's Day, hard to imagine how fast they are going by!
Now I feel old, I can say I remember this little one being born! The days are long and the years are short. My little cousin will be heading into high school next year- oh the fun and adventures ahead! Enjoy!
Yes, it deserves a full blog post! I went to Eugene because I had to see it with my own eyes (surprise!). My amazing friend finished the Eugene Half Marathon. And yes 13.1 miles is a lot, but if you know Erin, it was like she ran to the moon and back. I tried to take Erin to the gym back when I was in college at the U of O, and it was comical. But after her brother became a cancer survivor, she decided to dedicate a run and raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Enjoy! And check out their site if you would like more information. I love you Erin, I am sooo proud of you!!!
Trying to find a picture of my favorite Father's Day memories was hard. Most of my favorite memories with my Dad growing up- we don't have pictures of. The first play he took me to, Pirates of Penzance. Our camping trips to the sand dunes riding dirt bikes. Days spent at the lake jet skiing. I can't even think about all these without tearing up like a big baby. I am a Daddy's girl. And there are no words to sum up just how much my Dad means to me. He has set the bar in my life of what it means to be a man. He is superman, he can do anything and fix anything. He sacrificed so much to just always be there for me in a number of ways. I will always be grateful for the things he taught me, even when he wasn't talking. I love you Dad for all the adventures we've had, and all the fun to come!
*And yes you will probably see me tearing up at every Father Daughter dance I photograph.
Time has been going at warp speed with my two little ones. And it's hard to believe, but Mr. Boone is 1! He'll forever be my baby, and I had him promise me not to grow up too fast. He braved the snow and cold (22 degrees) for a manly sled shot, and I had to try one in the same outfit that Sawyer wore at his 1 year session. Let's just say they were two very different experiences. Here is Sawyers for a baby flash back.
Just because Fall is a beautiful time of year...
I got to have lunch with my oldest and dearest friend from when I lived in Bend, I saw a family grow from a couple that I photographed 3 years ago, and photographed an elopement at beautiful Salish Lodge. And then to top it off, a serious jaw dropping big beautiful moon and the crazy smoke from the Blewett fire on my drive home.
(disclaimer I am not a landscape photographer, never will be, just don't have the patience, this photo does not do it justice)- Enjoy
