{Sydney}::Class of 2019

Oh sweet Sydney.  Syd is our smart, sweet, talented, gorgeous neighbor.  We have absolutely delighted in watching this young lady grow. She is official “rock star status” with our girls, and is still kind enough to be so sweet to them when she sees them.  Syd was so easy to photograph…and I think it may be because she absolutely has no idea just how gorgeous she is.  We had so much fun shooting this session and I loved getting to see the individual that Sydney is. (I also had a super hard time narrowing down my favorites!!!) I can’t wait to see what’s next for this talented senior! We love you, Syd!

 

{Salvatore}::Class of 2019

It’s summertime and I am so excited to have a few high school senior sessions to share with you.

This wonderful young man, Salvatore, was so fun to hang out with.  His Mama and Dad and huge supporters of our St. Baldrick’s event, and through this we’ve become friends! If you know this amazing family, you know that they are giving and helpful, loving and lots of fun.  Sal started off his session a bit reserved, but quickly was comfortable enough to show his personality. We had lots of laughs and a really fun evening.  BEST of luck to you, Sal, on your senior year (and best of luck to you, Betsey and Joe, on getting through all of these moments with your boy!)

Enjoy!

 

 

Ballet + LAX

It’s been exciting watching the kids try new things and discover some new passions. William tried both wrestling and Lacrosse this year and really loved both! The girls tried ballet (with maybe a teeny tiny push from me 🙂 ) and ended up falling in love with it!  We went downtown last week in their ‘gear’ and had some laughs together…enjoy!

 

We are so thankful for the amazing ballet teachers the girls had this year.  They have learned SO MUCH and can’t wait for more dance in the Fall!

I am happy to report that Will is a totally normal 8 year old boy, making the goofiest faces for most every photo. 🙂

Rick Enslen - As always great photos! Will’s defiant stance and gameface should put fear in his opponents heart! The girls look so poised and natural. You will have to let us know if they do any public recitals. Thanks for sharing! Rick&Marcia

Cate:12…Anna:10…Will:7 1/2

Cate actually begged for a 12 year old photo shoot this year. She had the vision and I was happy to come along for the ride.  This young lady is amazing…she is kind, creative, smart and strong.  Though we miss our baby, we sure love the young lady she is becoming.

Anna also had such a vision for her 10 year old photos back in July. She knew exactly what she wanted to wear and where she wanted to be…her favorite beach.  Anna is so kind and so darn funny.  She brings joy and lots of silly to our house. She is smart, hardworking and beyond her 10 years in so many ways. We adore our little Bug.

Will had to be bribed to put on a shirt with a collar, wouldn’t change out of his athletic pants, and would only agree to a few pictures in our cul-de-sac. So, here is our smart, funny, stinker at 7 and a half.  We love his humor and wit and his tender heart. He is a total joy to be around.

{Cate} is 11

Dusting off the cobwebs on this old blog for some birthday pics of our gorgeous girl.  Life is busy, you know… Cate turned 11 back in November, we snapped a few pics of her in our cul-de-sac in February (oh, how times have changed), and now in March, I am happy to share them with you.

This amazing young lady brings our entire family so much joy. She is kind, strong, always positive, smart, thoughtful and gorgeous. This has certainly been a year of growing for Cate.  She’s learned so much about friendship, especially.  We have been beyond proud of her maturity and grace when dealing with some really difficult ‘friend’ situations.  This amazing girl came to realize the meaning of true friendship and the absolute necessity to treat people with kindness.She makes us laugh and she reminds us to enjoy all of the little wonders life has to offer. Music is at her core, that’s for sure. She has loved taking up flute with the 5th grade band this year.This next year will bring lots of changes again, of this I am sure.  Middle school is just around the corner and she’s already excited for this new adventure. We are so proud of this girl and so honored to be her parents.  Happy 11th Birthday, Cate!♥♥

Aimee - Jaim,

She’s perfection, and I hope she’s ready to become a babysitter! 😉

She’s the luckiest girl to have the mama that you are. I’m in tears looking at these sweet pictures of your glowing girl. And, as always, I’m humbled reading your words of wisdom.

All my love, ALWAYS. xo
