Welcome to another “Life by Len’s blog circle post! I have had so much fun working on this project with so many amazing photographers. Make sure you click on the link to see the next photographer’s post!
This month’s post is pretty special to me. Today marks fifteen years of my husband and I. It’s amazing to think I’ve known him almost half my life and I couldn’t imagine where I would be without him. This is one of our first photo together; you can almost see the sparkle in my eye and feel the butterflies in my stomach. I’m pretty sure he still makes me feel that way and I’m positive that our love is stronger now than it has ever been.
And now fifteen years later, we’ve built a strong marriage to raise our two little stinkers. Two little stinkers who are getting harder and harder to photograph but we love them nonetheless.
Next up is Sherri from Sherri Kelly Photography located here in Tampa as well, go check out her post for this month!
I cannot begin to explain how special this family is to me. We moved into a small little neighborhood at the beginning of this year and I pinch myself every time I drive home just to make sure it isn’t a dream! The B family was the first family we met and they could possibly be the sweetest family I have ever met. When they asked me to photograph their family, I could not be more thrilled. They are the epitome of a family.
Their little 5 year old is such a little cutie so I asked if she could pose for me for a project I was working on. She did so well in front of the camera. Doesn’t she have the most gorgeous eyes ever?
And my one of my favorite photos of all time
Where has this year gone? Thanksgiving came and went and now we are nearing the end of the year. This month’s blog circle is a little different because I didn’t take all of the photos! Sherri Kelly is a local photographer who I met a couple of years ago and I have been lucky to call her my friend. I love meeting up with her and chatting about our crazy photography obsession! This year, we decided to swap family photos for the holidays. I am so glad I did because it is so much better than trying to do it yourself! My boys obviously don’t love when I take photos of them so I was hoping that someone else would have better luck. Well, they didn’t completely cooperate, but Sherri worked her magic and these photos came out amazing! Enjoy the photos and don’t forget to click on the link at the end to follow along the circle!
I did get a chance to get some photos of the kids making and decorating gingerbread cookies. I had the bright idea of making everything from scratch and what a disaster that was! The kids thought it was a flour party and got it everywhere! I was cleaning up flour all day long! We had fun though and I’m glad the boys have this memory to look back at!

This year is slowly slipping away and has it been a year to remember. For this month’s Life by Lens post, we chose the theme “thankfulness”. If you have been following my blog, you know I am participating in a month blog circle with some of the most talented photographers where we document our everyday lives. My life is so blessed with so many things I am thankful for and this post will not even touch the tip of the iceberg but it’s a start.
For my little boy growing up (too fast)…
For candy filled Halloween with the cutest Storm Trooper and cowboy you have ever seen…
For camping with amazing lifelong friends…
For remembering school days…
For traveling and making memories…
For the most amazing man I get to call my husband…

Welcome to another edition of our monthly blog circle, Life by Lens! Hard to believe that it’s been a month since the last Life by Lens post and a month since my oldest has been in school. He is loving every minute of it and doing so well! We decided to go back to the theme idea and we chose to improve on using more of the environment in our photos. I had every intention of taking the boys out and capture some photos at a fabulous location but every single afternoon, the storm clouds rolled in and it was just a torrential downpour that put a big damper on my plans. So I had to come up with a Plan B; shooting inside and using our home as the “environment”. Well that didn’t really work either but I still got these photos that I love of my little peanut in some moody light. Somebody pinch me because how in the world did I end up with the cutest little bug in the world? (Ok, that had nothing to do with using the environment but we all have to agree he is pretty darn cute!) So next time we come up with a theme, I’ll have to redeem myself and come up with something to blow you away!
And did you know that a two year old’s mood can change in a blink of an eye?
Next up is the amazing Nicole Everson in North Florida! She does such beautiful work from weddings to newborns, she does it all!

Summer has flown by and it’s another month for my Life by Lens blog post. I hope everyone has been enjoying these posts because I really love putting it all together. It helps that I have so many wonderful photographers in the circle that motivate and inspire me. So don’t forget to click on the link at the end to see what we are all up to this month!
My little boy is growing up before my eyes. I still remember those sleepless nights when he was a newborn, the excitement of him rolling over for the first time, taking his first steps, his first words (I can’t believe we were ever worried about his speech!), lots and lots of firsts that we were excited about. I never thought I would be THAT mom though, you know the one that will be bawling when she drops off her first born off at Kindergarten? It’s such a huge deal though. Isn’t it? Next thing you know, he’s going to middle school, then high school, getting his license, graduating, going off to college, getting married, having kids of his own, and and and… What? I’m losing it? But it’s Kindergarten people! Where he will be learning reading, writing, and arithmetic, bringing home homework, making new friends, tying his own shoes, buying his own lunch and bringing it to the table all by himself!
Brandon is such a wonderful kid and I know he make our family proud each and every step of the way. Those tears when I take him to his classroom will only be tears of joy because I can’t believe what an intelligent, independent, funny, considerate, and sweet boy he has become over the last five years.
So of course I had to take him out to make sure I document this important milestone in his life. Just look at my handsome boy, ready to venture into the big world!
(Thank you Grandma for the adorable blazer! I knew it would come in handy one day!)
Next up is the wonderful Sherri from Sherri Kelly Photography! I love that she’s in town and we can meet up and talk photography!
Baby Ava brought nothing but cuteness and smiles for her second session with me! She developed a slew of new skills too since last time! She sits up like a champ, rolls over, babbles, and on the verge of crawling. And don’t you just love the adorable dimple? I am looking forward to seeing her again in December for her one year session! I am incredibly honored to be chosen to capture her first year. It can’t get any better than this!
It just amazes me how fast the first year of a baby goes by but I just love seeing my babies change throughout their first year. I photographed Elle when she was just 7 days old, she was just a tiny peanut, again at 9 months and now she came back for her cake smash session. I thought her 9 month session was tough, boy was I wrong! She was so mobile and had her own agenda, just wandering and exploring around the studio with zero interest in taking photos. We managed to get a full gallery of her smiling and having a grand ole time running circles around us! And lucky for us, the rain stopped and the sun was shining just before the session and we were able to take some photos outside. Elle is also going to be a big sister in November! I can’t wait to photograph her baby sister when she arrives! Thank you G Family for choosing me to photograph Elle’s first year and your growing family!
