Super Cute Valentine's Day Kissing Booth Mini Session in North Phoenix!

Super Cute Valentine's Day Kissing Booth Mini Session in North Phoenix!

Whelp, it's ALREADY Valentine's Day 2017 and we're over here like, where in the blazes did January go?! Despite the fact that time seems to be speeding up and our three beautiful kids won't stop growing, we took Valentine's Day minis to a whole new level this year! We have such amazing, handy friends (*cough You're the best Jo! *cough*) who built us this super cute kissing booth just for this fun little occasion!

We rounded up the kids, blew threw homework (we might have given them a few answers to speed up the process), and rushed over to one of our favorite local spots before the light faded! And holy sweet, golden sun are we GLAD we did! It almost didn't happen! The struggle was REAL to get these school-dazed kids out the door before that sunset. But we made it by the skin of our sugar coated teeth!

Everyone pitched in to make this one of our most memorable and fun mini sessions yet. Our oldest was such a great helper. He took charge and had so much fun role-playing and getting the two little ones to play along! The other two took the bait and were hooked. It also helped that we had jars of candy lying around everywhere. Our daughter is a woman after her mother's heart and couldn't keep her hands out of the candy jars though! And our poor youngest forgot all his money at home. Thankfully, his older brother and sister were willing to sneak a few chubby cheek kisses, free of charge!

We hope you have as much fun this Valentine's Day as we did doing this photo shoot. Find someone you love, hold them close, and don't be afraid to give out a few kisses free of charge too! Happy Valentine's Day lovebirds!

When we started these milestone mini's last November, I remember thinking that it was going to take forever to get to his first birthday. But now I'm shaking my head trying to figure out where this year went and how it can be that in a couple months almost a year has gone by. It seems like just yesterday that we did his 6 month photos and his 3 month photos. I think it's safe to say that this little chunk has a special spot in my heart and I am going to miss him and his Mama when he "graduates" out of my milestone mini sessions! This month I wanted to try something fun and different so we filled up the sink, poured in some bubbles and let him have at it! It was so much fun to watch him, he splashed and tasted and then tried to climb out ;) Happy 9 months little man, I can't wait to watch you smash cake and learn to walk!  

The Wouters Family - A fun in the sun family session in Dana Point

The Wouters Family - A fun in the sun family session in Dana Point

Dear Blog... We are sorry we have neglected you for a MONTH. It's not you, it was us. We were having too much fun playing at the beach, being lazy and eating too many cookies. We knew we needed some family time. Time to regroup. Time to refresh our minds and our souls. So we took it. And it was awesome. We are so thankful for time together to make memories, to think, to pray and to get ready for the fall! It's going to be a great rest of the year filled with new experiences, new joys, new trials and, thanks to our month off, we are pumped and ready!

 But enough about that, we want you to feast your eyes on this beautiful family! We might be biased about these guys because, well, we've known them for 10 YEARS, but we think the Wouters are pretty awesome. When we first met them we were all young married couples learning the ropes of marriage and adulting. Shortly after we met, both Sherri and I bonded over pregnancy, coffee and eventually babies. Then as the years went on, we had more kids, life got crazy, we didn't hang out as much but we always stayed close. Now that we live closer, our kids are growing up together, we drink wine together, we workout together and we cannot imagine it any other way! In fact thats how we planned their session! They wanted something different, something fun, so we packed up and went to the beach! Their whole family embraced us and allowed us to join in on their vacation and it was awesome. 

We had a blast finding new places, laughing and getting honked at! Yeah, jumping into the middle of a busy intersection to get the shot wasn't the brightest thing Megan has ever done but hey we got the shot! Although we learned that next year we should do the photo shoot at the BEGINNING of the week so we're not all sunburned and tired! 

Thank you guys for a fun week, for allowing us to capture you and your family, and for letting us be a part of your tribe! We couldn't imagine life without you!
