Happy first mother's day little sis! I am so proud of you and am amazed at how well you have adapted into your new role as 'mom', as if being a mom is just something that you were meant to be. I love that we have motherhood in common now, that I can give you advice when you ask and that I can be your cheerleader. I feel that when this little man was born, a new and stronger friendship was born for us as well and I am so thankful for that. I'm so happy our kids can grow up together and I'm looking forward to all the wonderful experiences we will have as a family. You are already an incredible mother and I hope you have a wonderful first Mother's Day!
It's no secret I love in-home sessions. I love capturing the connections of a family, especially when a new little person is added to the mix. One of my favorite things about this sessions is documenting the newly formed bond between big sis and her little brother. C is the same age my son and just as spunky, maybe even more so! She had me in smiles the entire time. I think these two kiddos are going to have tons of fun growing up together
Yesterday was my little nephew's birthday!! He's just about the cutest baby I've ever seen. My sister did amazing and is doing great - it's still hard for me to believe that she had a baby! haha! I loved documenting his first day in this world and I can't wait to smother this little boy with lots of love :)
In March we took our first family vacation (as a family of 4) and drove down to SC. It was a much needed sunshine break and escape from the cold and snow of Ohio. The kids were amazing in the car (thank you dvd player and new dvds from the library) and we had such a great time. Ditching the winter gear and feeling the sun on our faces and the sand in our toes was exactly what we needed. We flew a kite every day including at sunrise one day, we collected sea shells, we fell asleep listening to the ocean waves, we had a LOT of laughs and made great memories. I can't wait to go back. We explored Charleston too but I just really loved the beach so I'll share some of my favorite beach photos. After you check out these photos please check out Bee Chalmer's post - I just love her work.
This photo below cracks me up. During vacation Tom and I raved about the king size bed and how roomy it was. We even thought about buying one when we got back home. We felt like we had so much room. Then I came across this photo while editing (taken at night so very high ISO) and I can't stop laughing. King size bed or not, the smallest person always takes up the most space and Tom and I end up with little slivers on opposite ends of the bed.
