Today one of my best friends and I attended a tea party thrown by our local library. We were absolutely blown away by the beautiful decor and had a great time!

My Navigator

BVLM5938.jpg

Recently I made the decision to buy my son a compassย so that he could act as the navigator for our adventures. I wasn’t sure if he would love it for five minutes thenย find another thing to play with or genuinely be interested in using it but I took my chances. As it turns out, he loves using it to guide us wherever we go!

With that in mind, we set out for a nearby park in which we went on a search for water and ducks.

He figured out how it worked quite quickly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I feel certain that our compass adventures are just beginning, and that my tiny navigator is developing a sincere reverence for the world around him.

The Poetry of Seasons

Processed with VSCO with a8 preset

Every time the weather begins to change I can’t help but feel a sense of promise within my soul. The process of the changing seasons is comforting to me and I always find myself looking forward to the next season that is to arrive. The ebb and flow of natural change does feel a bit like poetry to me.

I’ve yet to make any concrete summer plans apart from scribbling a few locations that I would love to go to. Hopefully I will become a bit more organized soon so that I can properly plan an adventure with my family. Do any of you have any summer plans?

Butterfly Garden

Hello again,

I recently took some time away from posting here in order to meet the demands that graduating from college require. Completing my Bachelor’s Degree was a huge accomplishment for me and I know that myself and my family will certainly benefit from my education. Since then, I have been adjusting to days without a schedule and viewing them as days brimming with possibility.ย Oneย of the first things I knew I wanted to return to as soon as possible was shooting with my camera. And my son was more than happy to jump on the chance for an adventure with Mommy. ๐Ÿ™‚

After some time off it felt so good to get back to doing what I love. And I’m so excited for all of the adventures that this summer will bring!

Gender Reveal

Some of mine and my husband’s close friends recently found out they were going to have a baby, and since then there has been an awful lot of debate over whether they were expecting a boy or girl. A few days ago, Carissa and Jacob finally found out what they are having ๐Ÿ™‚

Bluebonnets in March

Bluebonnets are a characteristic sign of spring in Texas, and luckily for us there is a field of them not far from where we live!

Of course, it was also a great opportunity to snap a fewย mama and son photos while we wandered among the beautiful flowers. James was very intrigued and kept asking to pick them!

And I couldn’t help but get a few photos of him with the Easter bunnies I recently made for him. ๐Ÿ™‚ He usually doesn’t take to stuffed animals but he’s given them names and clutched them the whole ride to the bluebonnets!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI hope you all are having a wonderful start to spring and if you are in Texas, be sure to see the bluebonnets! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cooper & Family

If you saw my last photography session with this beautiful family several months ago, then you might recall that Trisitn was pregnant with little Cooper. But he finally arrived!

I had the best timeย taking these! The love that this family has for one another was so apparent when I walked in, and it was such a privilege to capture it through photographs. Congratulations, Coston family!
