jalen and shawntel engagement

Sweet, sarcastic, down to earth, fun loving, just a few words that I think describe Jalen and Shawntel. I met this couple on a cool, rainy spring day at the park. I brought my cute bubble umbrella and thankfully the rain held off just long enough and we didn't even need it. So looking forward to their beautiful summer wedding!

room makeover

Because "picture perfect" does not exist in this home (and darling I try). Because the second I pull out my camera to document my girls room makeover, bedheaded, pajama clad girls dart back and forth in front of my lens, rumpling blankets, throwing pillows, setting up tea parties. Here are the photos of my girls room the way it will usually look (who am I kidding this is probably the cleanest it will ever be) beds not perfectly made and toys out. But that's the beauty of the boho look...if I can call it that. I am no decorating expert. I just love putting together the things that make us happy and work for our family. In this room that was color, unique finds like our sweet elephant (homegoods), soft bright bedding (ikea), and my new favorite pink wall color (angelic by sherwin williams), oh and the fun throw pillows (found by my sister at target). I'm hoping to fill this room with lots of secondhand treasures from my favorite vintage stores in old town BG. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for letters to hang above the beds, and throw blankets for the foot of the beds. Thank you Katie and Melea for getting this done with me in extreme makeover style!


My beautiful niece Madison snuck in on our sisters trip to FL. We were happy to have her. And I was happy to have a model for some beach photos...practice for her senior photos?

tea for two

Piper Jane and her sweet friend Kinley drinking tea in "the daffodil garden". Sylvie has been spreading her creative wings lately, party planning, and setting up photo-shoots (she usually steals my phone to take her photos) are her favorites. She helped style this sweet little tea party shoot in minutes.

hadley joy

I was so blessed to go visit my niece Ally and meet miss Hadley Joy last weekend. Ally's second baby and first girl. She is such a sweet relaxed little love. She cuddled up in her moms amazing fur comforter and let me take as many photos as I pleased.


So these photos may not be super recent but they are still super cute. Jolene always has the most creative ideas for her boys photo shoots. Since these would be for Christmas cards I decided to wait a little while before blogging them because I for one love to keep my photos under wraps before I send out cards. So Merry (late) Christmas from these sweet boys!

I'm dreaming

Well we were dreaming of a white Christmas...didn't happen this year but maybe next hey? 
Me and Sylvs were cleaning up our Christmas decor and we came across this fake snow in our Christmas village. She stuck on a hat and scarf, we gathered up the snow in grocery bag and headed outside. Love that this girl enjoys photo shoots as much as her mother.
