This boy turned 8 months old on the 8th. Seriously, this little guy is such a happy little love. He’s started holding my face and leaning in for kisses, he sits up all on his own now, he’s fascinated by the dogs water bowls just like oaks was, he smiles 90% of wake time, and is oh so happy when chasing big brother and pulling his hair (sorry Oakley 😂). Oh, Declan, i love you so. Also, that last photo 😂😂😂😂. Oh, and if you don’t have a personalized blanket for your little yet, @libbyannquilts makes these aaaaaamazing blankets! Oakley has 3 and Declan now has his own plus a plushy mini size one for traveling!! Love her shop and blankets!
Today is one of those days. Oakley has a fever, Declan is very congested and having a hard time breathing. Oaks is refusing to be apart from me so he is currently sitting on my lap in my office as I try to get anything done today.
I love detail shots. I shoot cropped in a lot because I love the intimacy of a tight photograph can present. But, then I remember how beautiful our surroundings are too and challenge myself to get wider photographs.
There is an amazing field outside my sister’s new house, so I took Oakley out to it ... ask me how hard it is to get a newly turned two year old to take photos. 😂
Dear Oakley Eastwood, • Last night as I held you in my arms over your crib, I brushed your wet curly hair through my fingers and kept asking myself where the last two years went. Your head still tucks under my chin but it takes up so much more room. Your arms that once barely spanned my chest now wrap around my arms as you squeeze hug me. Your once old man hair style is now a head full of blonde curls. You have grown so much over the last year, physically, verbally, and emotionally. You’ve traveled, met new friends, and even gained a little brother. Oh, baby, you are the best big brother too. Thank you for making me a momma, for showing me what true conditional love is. • Happy birthday! • 💙
Have I told you about my love affair with black and whites lately? #blackandwhitephotography #rvaengaged
I was showing my photography students images from this engagement session and when I flipped to this image they said “whoa!! Is that her ring?!” I think some of my girls have new inspiration for their future rings, can you blame them? So flawless. #ksantbrides #engagementrings #rvaengaged
This couple and that frickin light! Oh man. Saturday evening was a good one! Cannot wait to share more from their engaging session. #ksantbrides #ohwowyes #rvaengagements

One of the best accessories a girl could have! #ohwowyes #weddingshoes
This time last week we were getting ready to celebrate this gorgeous girl and her new hubby. About a month ago we dressed her up and took some amazing bridal portraits! Even though that day was crazy and her zipper broke right after we got her in her dress, requiring the shop owner to drive to my house to cut her out of said dress. It all worked out and we got stunning images of her! We love you @coco.nicole11 thank you for being one of my best friends and aunt coco to my kiddos.
Here is to mommas and their sweet babies 😍
