Easter weekend was fantastic!  Our beach sessions went off without a hitch and the weather couldn’t have been more gorgeous.  I wanted to share a more personal post of our own family’s weekend.  As you can imagine…with 3 kids, my husband and I rarely have a chance to get out by ourselves.  Well, we just celebrated our 9th anniversary this past week.  9 years!  I can hardly believe it has been that long, but as they say…time flies when you are having fun.  Anyway, my mom was kind enough to take care of our 2 oldest kids and let my husband and I (and Ivy of course) have a little getaway by ourselves.  The big kids just love spending time with Grandma, so they hardly noticed we were gone and well, Ivy seems like a piece of cake when you are used to taking care of 3.  It was a great, relaxing weekend and it was so much fun experiencing everything for the first time right along with Ivy.  I wanted to share just a couple a lot pictures from our trip…

too much fun in one day makes a very sleepy baby…

This girl is growing so fast!  If I could slow down time, believe me…I would!  I know one day I will love having these photos to look back on and see how much of a blessing she has been to us.  I can’t believe I get to kiss these sweet cheeks whenever I want.

I can’t believe in 2 days my Ivy will be 8 months old!  It has been a whirlwind since she was born, but a beautiful one.  She has already brought so much joy into our lives.  I can’t imagine life without her.

She’s here!

July 13, 2011

Yes, I am a little late in posting this.  Ivy made her arrival on June 20th, 2011.  I had forgotten just how much a new baby could change things and just how little time you have especially with 2 other children at home, so I am just now getting around to posting her photos.  I will be picking up sessions again full time in September and taking limited sessions during August.  Thank you all for your patience while we welcome our sweet baby girl into the world!

Maternity Leave

June 8, 2011

I am officially on maternity leave from today through the end of July.  Still no baby, but hopefully she will be arriving any day now!

I will be accepting very limited sessions during the month of August, so if you need an August session and are not a Grow with Me member please go ahead and get on the schedule now to make sure you get a spot.  I will be coming back full time in September.  I will be checking email throughout my maternity leave, however it may take a couple extra days for a response.  I hope you all have a wonderful summer!

A few pictures of the soon to be big sister.  Her big brother wasn’t interested.

Ludington, MI ~ 2010

July 22, 2010

We had a great time visiting the family this summer.  If you have never been to Ludington it is definitely worth the trip.  We don’t get to visit as often as we would like, but when we do we have such a nice time.  Here are a few photos I took while hanging out at my Grandma’s house.  There are so many beautiful areas around I will have more coming.  Just wanted to go ahead and post a few.
