It’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost a wrap! What a wonderful year it has been, both in my personal life and in my business! My family is happy and healthy! Remington loves being a kindergartener, riding the bus, learning to read, and learning new skills. He loves working with tools for woodworking projects with his Dad. He even shared his old toy workbench with his little brother Emerson. And Emerson knows what a flathead screwdriver is, because his big brother has one too! Reggie continues to flourish in his automotive business, Reggie’s Motorworks. He never stops learning and growing and dreaming of the future. He is such an inspiration to me and to my children!
As for my photography business, I’ve met many wonderful new families and couples this year! What an honor and a delight to witness, document, and share in some incredibly beautiful weddings, senior sessions, family sessions, and more! I have a long list of blog posts to write over the winter season, so stay tuned for those! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who supports me and continues to help me pursue my dreams!
Before we had children, people always said how fast they grow…and, gosh, that is so, so true! We try to spend quality time with our boys, enjoying each day, the good and the not so good, while they are little!
Our boys, Remington (6) and Emerson (who turns 3 on December 22nd!), are growing each day, and they love playing and wrestling and goofing off with Reggie! It is such fun to watch them! And when they climb onto Reggie’s lap to snuggle before bed, when they give him the biggest hugs, when they say “Daddy!” (and “Mommy!”), those are simple, yet amazing moments that I want to hold onto forever.
We love arts and crafts and games! Being creative and feeling inspired are so important to us and to our kiddos. Earlier this year, Reggie hand-crafted this gorgeous table for our unused breakfast nook area. We love that there is always abundant natural light streaming in while the boys paint, draw, race trains/cars/trucks, build with LEGO, etc. It is one of our favorite spaces in our house!
From our family to yours, we would love to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
Thank you, Stefanie Childs, for sharing your time and talent in capturing our lifestyle family portraits. You are amazing! And many thanks to my sweet friend, Julia, for making me look and feel my best! xoxo
