Some personal FUN!

2 days in a row?! Now this is a big deal.

All you moms out there know how hard it is to get 3 minutes to your self. Especially when you start your day with two babies in your bed. (aka- who sleeps?!) But here I am- showered, dressed (well sort of. as long as pjs count), fed and sitting alone with my second (reheated twice) coffee actually blogging and emailing and editing away.  It’s a big deal.

I am planning on keeping things simple around here. (I write like I talk. Those of you that know me, know this.) But I do want to share a few pics of my people with you guys. Isla Drew turned ONE. WHOA. I have 5 kids now and 0 babies. That hurts. I still want 100000 babies. Which I thought that feeling was suppose to go away once you were done having kiddies. Nope. Anyways, she’s awesome and loving and silly and truly a gift. Funniest little unicorn you ever did see. She adores her brothers and they are obsessed with her. She fits right into their crazy, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Some of our sweet friends and family are in these photos as well. Life is so precious, I want to remember every moment. And every loved one.

Oh and some exciting news…my good friend Jessy (fab photog) and I are hosting our very first Photog Mama Photography class in a little over a week. I can’t wait to share all the fun with you guys. ❤

ok Happy Thursday beautiful friends!! xx

RuffleButts and RuggedButts Spring 2014

Charlotte, NC   {commercial photography, child photography}

I have been so blessed to be a small part of such incredible businesses in the past year, I can’t even begin to express all my gratitude and respect for each and every one of them. I have learned so much from these experiences and people, and appreciate all they have trusted me with.  Having your own business is like having your own baby- and I am so sure it has to be difficult to rely on someone other than yourself to do the best for your business. I am so thankful that Amber and her entire family, and team at RuffleButts & RuggedButts have trusted me me with their photography needs!

RuffleButts and RuggedButts are beyond cute. If I had a little girl, I’m sure I would have her in RB every single day. Little girls in ruffled bloomers make the world a happier place. Their newer boy’s line, RuggedButts is also so so cute.  My boys love how soft all their clothes are too, to top it off!

I am so excited to share a few images from their just released Spring 2014 line with you all! We’ve had to wait since our big shoot this fall so we didn’t spoil all the excitement with their big spring release! It’s hard to pick my favorites from 100+ outfits we photographed to share with you all…but here are some of them!

Also, if you haven’t checked out RuffleButts or RuggedButts by now…get on it! Your kids will thank you!
