My daughter keeps sneaking in my room night after night, and when I wake up with dead legs (because she doesn’t lay beside me on my kind-sized bed, but right on top of me) I can’t get angry because I know some day I’ll miss it. she’ll be too big to want to sleep in my bed and I’ll wonder what happened to my baby girl.

I took a little break from sharing more of these words from the heart/ love letters/ things I want my children to know (I’m having an identity crisis with what to call it). If you’re new to my blog (or not) I have to tell you, I updated my 365 love letters section, and messing around with those posts I realized WOW my photography has made an improvement. Check it out.

But first, a quick photo tip… Catchlights. I love them. I think they’re best when you’re standing near a window, with your child looking toward you, yourself positioned in front of the window (yet not blocking the light) is that confusing? Hope not. I did the opposite with the fridge shot below to create a deep shadow.

I've decided there are few things in life as adorable as watching a kid discover snow for the first time. My Texas kiddos froze their butts off but had a blast in Utah making snow angels and tubing. Of course in true paparazzi fashion I got it on video. New #ontheblog link in bio! #HeresToFirsts #MakingMemories #letitsnow
So very thankful for these three. And a rare family photo we captured today! #happythanksgiving
He's got snow in his fro! Today was the first time my kids saw and experienced snow and it was magical. We went tubing and again! was this guy's word of the day. #HeresToFirsts #makingmagicalmemories
These two... #icanteven. And yes, getting this picture was as torturous as you can imagine. My fam is trying something new this Christmas. Details on the blog. Link in bio!
Every year we pick out a new @hallmark Ornament. 2015 has been the year of Disney for my family. Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and in two weeks, a Disney Christmas Cruise. I could think of no better ornament than Mickey ears to be our family's keepsake on the tree this year. And it even sings! (My son quickly realized this... Oh boy) ?. #keepsakeit. #promo
I had no idea my husband would be such a hot Hook ?. #happyhalloween
This week I'm shooting a photography course on photographing children. Coming soon to a website near you! ?
This *may* be my favorite shoot to date. Lil' J was as playful as ever embodying her current favorite princess. All of the photos are now up on the blog. Plus a Q&A with Lil' J about the process. Link in bio. #dressupwithj #princesstiana #disneyside
It's a shame I'm her mom. This girl loves to cook SO much and I do not. But I'm resolving to make this something we can do together. Her bright, excited and happy face makes the kitchen much less gloomy for me. Check out these peanut butter banana bites she whipped up for her and her brother after school.
