The thunder rumbled outside and the music played on the inside. The dice were rolling and the smiles were contagious. Finally, several moments of pure bliss and I had no idea what was coming next. After our game, while Jonathen hunted for our next game, you came to me arms up high and asked me to dance. I […]

Most days I just crave a glimpse. A glimpse into your world. Your eyes tell a story like none other. When our eyes meet, even for just one minute I melt right in. I study, I treasure, I feel giddy within. For a minute in your world is worth a million in mine.

A look within

Remember this, YOU can achieve anything if you try. Sometimes fear is quick to rush in and take away your anything. Tonight though, that was not the case. I loved watching you master the art of the canon ball. Who knew you had such ups and so much splash. After I caught this you begged me […]

I am surprised sometimes when I get the email that asks about sessions with older kids. It always hits me the same, I do work with many families with small children. But that doesn’t mean that I do not LOVE working with families with older kids too. In fact, I love to. Especially this one. […]

Cross country season is long gone but the benefits, they still remain. You learned so much during that season. I watched as you learned to push yourself, to not give up and to go farther than you thought you could. It will always be something I remember. It was a big time for you and […]

These two were my very first subjects as a little girl. It is so surreal to still be able to capture their connection all these years later and with all that I know now. It was the last day of their visit when the snow started to fall. We had so much snow this year […]

I love it when you are here, you always find a little project to help with. These days there are many little projects around the house that are getting overlooked during our busy day-to-day life, so knowing one of those gets checked off is the best gift. Thanks for being you!

You and I Jackson, we have the sweetest relationship. One that I treasure. I know just what you need, just how you need it and you reward with me with such genuine joy. There have been very few people in this world that you have let in, in the same way. So the first time […]

A little mischievous but joyful grin. Tonight it was warm enough to dance in the sun and run away from mom. A little something we are working on with you at the moment. It is a little independence, which we welcome, with a twist of danger as you learn the ways of the busy street.
