fall is here

Well, almost. It’s still pretty warm here and the leaves have just started to turn colors. But that doesn’t mean I can’t take the dudes out for some pre-fall photos, right? It was time for some nice new photos that can go up on the wall 🙂 And, as you can probably tell, they were more concerned with giggling and having fun with each other 🙂

We know each other since years, since before we moved to California. As soon as we moved back to Maryland K contacted me and wanted a family session. It took us a whole year to set a date and get together. So last Saturday I drove out to their house and we met up for a session. K, your kids are STUNNING and made my job so easy 🙂

tell me a story | april 2014

We had a few warm days this month, lots of rain, but no snow. Don’t get me wrong, I love snow, but I also love seeing nature wake up and kids outside. Definitely the kids outside. It’s so nice to be able to open the back door and they can play outside the whole afternoon.

Here’s one of those afternoons 🙂

And please don’t forget to check out what the wonderful Julie was up to this month 🙂

their world | april 2014

It’s the first month this year without snow! And sun! Lots of sun! We also had spring break, me turning another year older and grandparents visiting from Germany. Needless to say we had a lot to do.

Please go check out the wonderful Jude and see what she was up to this month

tell me a story | march 2014

Rainy days. The snow is gone and we have rainy days. Lots of them. There is no whimsy light to be found, actually, all we have is clouds. And rain. Lots of it. That makes for a whole lot of no excitement in this house. So here is what we did. We had a movie afternoon with popcorn, made dinner and ate it. We also went to jump in the puddles. You should’ve seen the ghetto water casing I made for my camera…really classy.

Please go and check out the wonderful and talented Mindy from Orange Moon Photography and see if they had rain too 🙂

their world | february 2014

Phew, it’s already time for another installment of “their world”. This month has been something. So many snow days, I can’t even tell you. I know the kids liked it, and that’s all that matters, right? Well, I tried my best to catch some of their world with my camera. Here’s snowman building, chocolate in shorts eating, duck feeding and playground fun 🙂

Next up is the amazing  Erin 🙂 You don’t want to miss out on that :)Enjoy!

living in the moment | July 2013

July is over. We’re on the last leg of summer break and the dudes are more than excited to go back to school. I think they’re sick of me. It’s ok. It prepares me for having teenagers in 10 years, when all I will get is an eye roll and a growl that will slightly resemble my name and everything is more interesting and cooler than hanging out with me. Until then, I make them suffer through splash park and pool visits and neighborhood slip ‘n slide meetings. By the way, isn’t it crazy how quick the light changed in these slip ‘n slide photos? That’s the desert for ya… 🙂

Now go check how Stephanie makes her family suffer through the summer time 🙂
