Summer is flying by and this month snuck up on me! This is a fun project that I am participating in with a wonderful group of photographers where our goal each month is to document our everyday lives.
We’ve been having so much fun this summer doing our usual things. Legoland is still a favorite place for the boys to go. We had so much fun on the 4th of July hanging out there and watching the amazing fireworks show.
Another summer and another trip for my oldest son to go visit his cousin in California. See here he is!
He flew over there with my parents and I will go over and get him in a week or so! I can’t wait to see him! So the little one and I have just been hanging out.
We even re-created a photo shoot we did with my oldest when he was three. My little Super Boy!

This month started with blueberry picking! We found a farm 15 minutes from our house called BlueYouth Farms. We had so much fun picking them, we went twice! Two weekends in a row! I’m pretty sure we got enough blueberries to feed an army!
Then we just put our feet up and try to relax because the rest of the month was quite busy!
Someone finally got a visit from the Tooth Fairy this month! I was told afterwards that the Tooth Fairy was very generous this time and that next time around she may not be!
We traveled down to Miami to be a part of my cousin’s wedding and had a fabulous time at the resort! We definitely will be visiting this resort again! Such a beautiful city!
Got some shots of them in their dressed up outfits! Not cooperating, but what’s new?
I didn’t get to take many photos from the wedding because I was in the bridal party but I did sneak in a few here and there. I’ll definitely be blogging the photos when I’m done editing all of them! One of my favorites from the evening!

This project has definitely kept me on my toes about taking photos of the boys. There’s nothing that makes me more happy than to see a whole album full of photos at the end of the year that I put together. We don’t even have to go anywhere to make the photos special, sometimes even just photos of them in the house doing everyday things are the best ones.
They love pretending to be daddy, putting on his glasses and his work badge. They are so silly sometimes, actually, all the time.
I love every little detail about them. Even when the 6 year old insists on putting a little water balloon in his toes when I wanted to get a photo of his big boy feet.
I wish we take them to the park more to play because they clearly just love it.
Even playing in the driveway is a lot of fun, especially when the weather is this beautiful in Florida this time of year!

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!
2013 was simply an amazing year for my photography thanks to all my amazing clients. There are hundreds of photographers to choose from in the Tampa Bay area and I am so thankful for each and every one of my clients who chose me to capture the most precious people in their lives. Trusting me to freeze a moment in time and hoping these photos will forever be cherished. It was such a tremendous year in growth for my photography and I am looking forward to all the amazing experiences I get to look forward to!
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!
