its clearly been quite awhile since I last blogged.. I have had a crazy summer full of photoshoots, the kids Zach getting his drivers license this fall etc... things are finally slowing down and I got to take some pics of my kids yesterday afternoon for a bit.. they are forever my favorite subjects
and now my baby girl... who as you can guess is going to be a witch for halloween this year..
i had such a fun time with my girl yesterday... and the boys too..although there photos were quick.. they had more important things to do..
Jacob our second oldest son turned 14 this week... seriously I hate how fast they are growing up.. its crazy he starts high school this fall.. I would like to have a word with whomever thinks this kids growing up crazy fast was a good idea.. I was able to talk him into letting me take some photos.. ( yay ) my kids are my favorite subjects.. so here is Jake at 14..
Happy Birthday to our amazing Jake.. we love you so much ( oh and stop growing up so fast ) love you mom xoxo
Hey... whats up???? I know its been forever since I last blogged.. I have been crazy busy with photoshoots and editing and hanging with my kids.. I love summer.. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.. so far we have been having a really hot sticky summer.. which is awesome.. I know its uncomfortable at times.. but its not grey dreary or snowing so I will take it. Oh on big news.. we had family photos taken.. I did a photoshoot for a fellow photographer Lindsey Robinson.. we decided to trade services.. I have only seen a few from our session but here are some of them.. again these were taken by LINDSEY ROBINSON...
( its interesting to see your kids through someone elses eyes... I love it )
here is a photo my intern Kate took of me at a shoot the other day
and Zach took this one of Kate and I hard at work on a recent shoot..
back to photos I have taken...
she looks so grown up here...
went with my friend Jessie to get her nose pierced and got the other side of mine done.. I had been thinking about it for awhile.. and well just went for it
we have been doing alot of this .. this summer.... swimming
even miles likes to swim
been to the beach a few times as well
Nate built a rock castle
also took the kids to Darien lake this week.. they had fun.. I did not take alot of photos.
Our Second Oldest son had his last day of Middle School today.. as of next fall he will be in High School.. sigh.. where does the time go? here are some high lights from his Middle School Recognition Ceremony this morning.
( waiting to take the bus to Middle School for the last time )

ok so according to her.. the butterfly signifes how much she loves her family. the second one is for her kitten Lily that died awhile ago and " well you know mom .. love really does hurt " and the bottom one is for Lily too.. :)
I love spring.. I love warm weather.. sunshine.. I dont even mind the rainy days as long as its warm.. Ya know.. so here are some more recent photos...
( in the 11 almost 12 years we lived here I dont ever remember this bush flowering )
( workin on the fire pit )
some love for Miles..
we took Brooklynn swimming the other day .. she did not like it.. she was not one bit happy as soon as she got out of the water she did this.
she sure showed us.. she got a bath
I bought my self some Peony.. I decided I was not going to do much garden wise this year.. the dogs always trample everything I buy and its just not worth wasting the money to have dead plants.. but these were on sale and really inexpensive so I bought some.. I love them.
the kids have been doing alot of swimming these are all photos they took with the point and shoot that goes underwater.. I am pretty proud of them these are pretty cool.
my favorite corner of the yard..not quite sure why..
