Landon, 12 month Mini session Phoenix, AZ

Landon, 12 month Mini session Phoenix, AZ

We can't believe the time has finally come that our little buddy is finally 12 months! It came so fast and now it's here and gone! Mr. Landon turned one in November and with the holidays and sickness we finally got around to doing his little photo shoot last month. He has changed so much from his nine month photos, turning from a baby into a little toddler before my eyes! He is still so sweet with his little grin and tender heart.  We have loved getting to know him and his Mama and of course his big brother Nolan. Megan won Nolan's heart when she gave smarties and now she is forever known as  Mrs. Megan the smarties giver :) Nolan is such a big kid he is now 4! When I first met this family Nolan was 2, he looked a lot like little Landon but a little taller. I love getting to know my clients and grow with them while they become friends and family. 

We look forward to watching the boys grow up and can't wait to document these precious years where time stands still but races by all at once.  Happy Birthday little man! 

Landon 9 months

Landon 9 months

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!  

Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #10!

Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #10!

Please don't sue us for false advertising! We know the title of this post says "weekly" recap, but as you likely already know, it's been a month (or two!) since our last Fri-yay post! We're sorry! We really are! We were so distraught and felt really bad that we couldn't get our weekly posts up for the last couple months as we relaxed on the beach and hung out with family and friends. Really. Truly. We were. Especially after a glass of wine (or two) on the beach in California, our remorse was uncontrollable. Honest. Cross our hearts. Hope to die.

Now that we are back from our excruciatingly miserable California trip (if you haven't picked up on the sarcasm yet, you may need a glass of wine or two on the beach to catch up), we are here to share with you what's been going on with us for the last month-ish! So take a bath in sunscreen and don't forget rinse the sand out of those "hard to reach places" when we're done, because the summer fun is about to get real people!

This week was the first week of school for our big kids. We blogged about it Wednesday.  It's now been three days of lunches, paperwork, stories and new schedules. The kids are adjusting really well, both love their teachers and making new friends. Megan is hanging in there, as someone who doesn't like change much, it's a lot to process and deal with in one week #truth #gracenotperfection. Also the line to pick up the kids after school is no joke and not for the faint of heart. Kids, parents, cars, cross walks, old dudes with shiny vests holding stop signs moving at a glacial pace...well let's just say it's not the most fun part of Megan's day. But she is slowly learning how to handle it: lot's of caffeine therapy and chocolate chip cookie treatment. Next week will be better as we all continue to grow and get used to this new normal! 

Finally, now that school has started it's time to start thinking and planning for the fall! We have already begun booking sessions for the fall! We LOVE all you planners out there who have already contacted us, you make our little type-A hearts happy! We will be sending reminders periodically on Facebook and Instagram (sorry we aren't cool enough yet for Snapchat kids) as well as an email newsletter with dates! If you're a past client, keep an eye on that inbox, and if you are new around here and would like to get on our email list, just let us know over on our contact page! We can't wait to see all of your beautiful smiling faces this fall!

Hopefully now that we are all back in the swing of things, we won't wait another two months to post another weekly recap! Besides, "Fri-yay! Every-Other-Month Recap!" doesn't really have the same ring to it.

Have a safe and blessed weekend everyone!
