This was my favorite type of session to do. Jordyn’s mom mentioned she was into slides at the park, so it was obvious choice on where to photograph her. I love to include pieces of them in the photo…who they are, what they are about. I enjoyed setting her free and following her around the park from here to there. That is one of my favorite things to do with my children…follow them and let them lead me through their view of this world. I captured some truly genuine images of Jordyn, just doing her thing and I couldn’t be happier.

first day

the first day of school…such a magical time. Getting back into the routine, being a year older, meeting new friends…this kid is READY for it. He loves school and would go every day if he could. He is so far from me in this category and I couldn’t be happier about it. He has been getting up early for the past several weeks in order to prepare for this day. When I was in school, I would sleep up until the very last second and quite honestly, I still do that. I am so proud of this kid for being responsible and taking pride in his education.

We are taking a HUGE leap this year by switching schools. Seth completed grades K-5 at Roosevelt and this year he is transitioning into the catholic school scene by attending Holy Family Elementary. He has really been up for the change and I am so thrilled that he is taking it so well. The uniform is obviously our biggest change and when we got in the car and he sat down this morning he commented ‘these shorts are so short’. He is used to wearing big ‘ol nike shorts that go down past his knees! The sad part is that the shorts actually fit, which is something he’s not used to. He looks so stinkin’ handsome all cleaned up and proper.

I tortured him with a few photos this morning…

figured out

Just when I have this summer thing figured out…it’s about to come to an end and that makes my heart sink. Getting up early, dark days, routines and schedules, running from here to there and cold weather really brings me down. We stayed out last night til the sun went down and this was my last photo of the day. After I took it, I stood there breathing in the perfect air and reminded myself to remember the feel of it. I reminded myself to remember that moment so I could come back to it during those rough days of winter.
