Maeve’s First Painting

Maeve had a great time perfecting her first masterpiece! She was literally squealing with excitement as I was squirting the paint onto her palette. It always amazes me how children just know when they are about to experience something wonderful…even if they have never experienced it before. It’s like their inner awesomeness tells them, this is about to blow my mind. The first time I think I really realized it was at my niece’s birthday party. It was a couple months ago, and Maeve saw a cupcake. She had never seen one (that I can recall), and for that matter, had never tasted one…nothing even close. But as soon as she spotted them…the circular motion with her right hand on her chest (the sign for please) and “mo, mo, mo” exploding from her mouth were ON!! More please, she kept asking! More??? She’d never even had one! How did she know they were so tasty and yummy?!?! Inner awesomeness.

That was the case with painting. She hasn’t seen us paint before and yet, as I was setting up…her hand and her mouth were at it again. “Mo, Mo, Mo!” Soooo…without further adieu, here is her inner awesomeness painted onto a canvas…

As you can see, it started with the paintbrush, which quickly led to using her fingers, and hands, and oh…how does this taste?! And…just for fun, I’ll put it in my hair and on my body too. Just for fun!

And clean up…

Thank you for your inner awesomeness, Maeve! It is more awesome than I ever dreamed possible…than I ever thought possible.

Until next time…

We have been photographing Emma since she was 9 months old! And now…she is all grown up!!! Okay…not exactly! BUT she is in preschool now!!!! This is what Emma told her mama when she asked what she wanted to be when she grew up…

Quite possibly the best answer…

Favorite color…

Thank you SO much for including us!!

We are only slightly biased about Thomas Byron Gold the fifth!! That’s right…number 5! It has been so awesome to watch his mama grow, and we are truly excited to watch him grow as well! You know you guys are nothing short of awesome! Naturally, so is number 5…

Duh! Of course we had to do some CrossFit ones! Although, little baby Gold wasn’t quite up for it…

So outrageously sweet…

We’ve got nothing but love for you three!!

We were so thrilled to get the chance to photograph Paige…Amelia’s younger sister!! We photographed Amelia through her first year and loved watching her family grow. So, it was an absolute pleasure to watch their family expand even more with the arrival of Paige. Take a peek…

Ummmm…perfect BABY…

And perfect little toys too…

LOVE the pouty lips…

Thank you so much for including us in Paige’s life as well!!! Much Love to you all!

We headed over to Florence for Elise’s senior portraits! I absolutely loved the fact that you were down for anything, Elise. Thank you so much for being so sweet and easy to work with. Also a big thanks to her mama and sister for coming along to get Elise to loosen up ;)

Take a peak at how absolutely beautiful she is…

Stunning…

Her eyes were to die for…

I loved how vibrant the moss was! I did absolutely no enhancing to it…

Since Elise wanted to go to the beach, I, of course, made her get in the water ;)

I will end with another fave…

Thanks again!!

Of course this shoot was a little more special than just any shoot…because it was my sister! She is pregnant with baby girl number 2 and due so soon (but not soon enough)! Besides the fact that it’s my sis, she totally knows how to work the camera ;) which I LOOOOOVE! Take a peak at how super cute their soon to be family of four (well, five with PC)…

Halo is kind of outrageously cute!!!

This is honestly adorable! I love…

And I know you’re gonna hate this one Stace, but it was just too incredibly sweet not to post…
