1SE: June 2020


And what a wild year it has been.  I am in this weird mood of wishing it away as fast as I can (damn you COVID!) and wanting to savor it as long as possible since it's basically Teddy's first year and I want to savor that last baby goodness for as long as possible. Gah.  The struggle.

Anywhooooo, here's June's 1 second everyday video!

And, since we're halfway done with the year, thought I'd give you a sneak peek of the first half of 2020's video!

Anddddd, while I've got you here, we are officially 182 days DONE with 2020 (WOOT!), so here's 182 tiny squares of my #mooneygrateful366 project!

That's all I've got for June folks! Hope everyone had a good one and is staying safe!  Here's to hopefully a great July!

A Day of Snappin' with Ted

Nearly 8 months old is my favorrrrriiiiitttttteeeee baby age.  Teddy will be 8 months old on Saturday (WHAT?! HOW THO?!??!) and I remember this age so well with the other kiddos.

It's this beautiful age where they sleep so well, eat so well, can sit up but aren't crawling yet, and are just, well, so darn happy all of the time!  I remember this age with the other ones being the 'sucker' age into wanting another baby LIKE NOW!  But this is the first time that I don't feel that at all.  I am so happy with our little family, our 4 kiddos here and 1 in heaven, and I am SO DONE with babies.  I'll just sit back and wait to love on family and friends' babies whenever the come :) This factory is CLOSEDDD for business!

Today I had some free time (shocker! truly!) and Teddy was at this magical age SO out came my camera and off I went to snapping!

Using the inspo from my friend's daugther's shoot last spring, I felt like Teddy's roles also needed to be documented and celebrated...so off I went to snap his delicious self!

Goodness. Baby boudoir should be a thing! HAHA! But how freaking cute is he?!?

He also played a bit with his Clark Bear and that was just the cutest thing ever.  I swear whenever he sees his bear he is always reaching for it and wanting to squeeze it to hear his heartbeat. Sigh. I love that.

After nap time I text my brother asking him if his sink would be available sometime for a sink bath shoot for Ted -- since we have crap light in our kitchen AND our sink faces a wall and not a window.  WELP Ben was like, "COME OVER NOW!" so off Ted and I went for some sink bath snappies!

I had Ben and Erin blowing bubbles from a wand over my shoulder and it was just amazing.  I just ADORE how these pics turned out SO SO SO MUCH!  I took a billion so trying not to overload you here with a million snaps -- haha, but yeah.  It was a good day all around for pictures with my almost 8 month old and his big self!  I know I'm going to miss this age so much -- so I feel like all of my cooperative sitting and being a happy baby photo ideas need to happen ASAP!

Have a good one friends! Happy {almost} July friends!

Location Scoutin'

I took the girls + Teddy with me (and Mike! yay for him being off this weekend!) location scouting today and oh boy.  I am just OBSESSED with the spot we found!

It's not a 'new' spot; I've snapped there in the past...but just hadn't been anytime recently.  That changed today and oh boy!  I cannot wait to offer up this spot to some upcoming clients for their sessions!  EEKKKKK!  I think it's going to quickly become one of my favorite spots again.

We were only here for maybe 20 minutes, but dang.  I took SO MANY PICS and had a hard time culling them down for which ones to share here! HAHA! I hope I'll get a lot of new shoots booked wanting pics here cause I'm just obsessed with this spot (and there was NO ONE THERE! YAY!).

Anyways, thanks for dealing with my photo dumpin' on ya once again! I think our location scouting was just PERFECT tonight!!

SPOILER:  We have been swimming. A LOT.

Mostly in our backyard pool, but we've gotten to go to a friend's house and swim AND The Lodge outdoor pool opened up last week so we've been there too!

Honestly, what the heck else are you to do all summer when things are still mostly closed?!  YOU SWIM!

We've had a few friends and family over to swim too and that has been oh-so-good as well.

I cannot say it enough how grateful I am for that early pandemic panic purchase and how wonderful it has worked out for us thus far.  I'm sure we'll be practically living in it allllll summer long!

So yeah.  This post is a gigantic (maybe my most yet??! I think there's over 100+ pool pics just from the past few weeks here. YIKES! HAHA) photo dump of splish-splashing...but I feel like it sums up SO MUCH of our life right now that I needed to bloggity blog all of our pool snaps thus far into the summer :)


If you've made it to the end of this post I'm clapping for you and commending you for sticking with this gigantic blog post photo dump until the very end.  You're a finisher indeed :)

I'm sure there'll be more pool pics to come soon...just you wait! HAHA!  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer too and hopefully staying nice and cool out there!
