Would you believe she was the boss of this session??

Looking at this face, I’m sure that isn’t hard to believe.  This was a quick little session outside the studio for her 2nd birthday. She totally ruled the morning. Totally. In all the best ways;o)

She’s been around for a while now and has earned the right to do so! Her tearing up on the dance floor last spring, her sitting up here (9mos??),  and there are several more linked there and a couple I’m missing . . . wow, she has grown up fast.

What exactly is that sound?? Do you know?

What exactly is that Roar you feel in your soul but you also hear with your ears as you stand at the edge of the ocean? “That endless thundering motion” as one song says.  I’m personally quite certain  it’s the voice of something deeper calling to something deep within us . . . There is nothing more satisfying than standing there with that Roar of the ocean surrounding your soul. It’s one of the few sounds that truly quiets my mind. Regardless of how deep you go . . . anyone can relate to that!

It’s deafening.

And overwhelming.

And satisfying.

You’ll feel found, no matter how alone you may be.

Your soul is seeking just this, whether you know it yet or not! It’s part of why standing at the edge of the ocean seems to “wash away dirt from the soul”. I don’t believe the poets of our past just happened on lines like this. They were seekers and they discovered something. What exactly did they find at the edge of the ocean and the tops of the mountains?? Where are your favorite places to seek?? What have you found or Who has found you!? Have you ever thought you’d found something and considered it to be true only to discover you hadn’t at all?? Now that is a weird feeling . . . that will make you question everything. And that is when you truly find what you were missing . . . or does it find you at just that place? I’m not sure yet and really, chicken/egg/who cares. Just a long wordy way of saying, the edge of the ocean is a great place to start if you are looking for something;o)

Look how much joy  our souls found at the edge of this Texas ocean!!! yipee!! And, onto the pictures from a seriously lovely night in Galveston.

Talk about a seeker . . . you should have seen this little boy looking out so intently and snatching his prized creation back just before the thundering motion could sweep it away. He did this until it was completely dark. While I was focused on his mom (because it was technically her Mother Love session – that actual session coming NEXT), I could not ignore my intrigue over his intently focused side missions and wanted them to have their own spot on the blog.

Check out his face! I can totally relate – so focused you are distracted.

What happens every time another baby is born?


They grow!!!

Another little sweet thing turns one. I have a lot of these to blog. Before fall sets in, I’m going to try to give them each their own special spot on the blog! Aren’t his eyes magical?

Little windows to the soul. When celebrating the big 01 . . I’d really rather not waste time getting messy and sticky with a cake (although we do sometimes), but use the extra time to capture that unique glow each little baby human is growing into. Gosh it’s sweet! I feel like it’s an important time to celebrate them as a baby still. Because when you look back at this time, they’ll look so little and to you. And you’ll say, “How did it go so fast??!”

Drool and all!!!!!



silly little boys . . . of all the girls I rave on and on about . . . he seriously is one of the boys who has been around here the longest!  . . . He’s a complete joy and always full of personality. Looking back at his old sessions is mind blowing.

His session Last year, and the year before, about this time . . .  he’s another sweet angel who completes my summer!! It feels like we are sprinting toward the school year now!!

At least that means we are closer to fall.

everything lovely


I’ve said it before and will say it again . . . girly little girls are too much fun!!! Her newborn session (here) was just as girly.


And her one year session from just a couple of weeks ago now! This is one of my favorites of hers. . . She is so happy!
