Wow, has it really been almost a whole month since the last time I posted?!?!  Where have I been??

I really couldn't tell you.  But I do know that Kansas has been pretty much covered in a blanket of snow in the past 2 weeks.

On a recent "snow day" (i.e. day where I didn't feel like digging my car out so took the day off) I ran around in the backyard with Daisy playing in the snow and snapping a few photos.


Yes, the snow goes all the way up to her belly.

On another snowy evening the hubs came out to enjoy the snow as well.
What a stud.

(Please ignore the fact that my fence in the background looks a lovely shade of lime green.  I'm really not sure what that's all about.  I think it's some type of mold or mildew growing.  Awesome.)

I hope to post more of my "snow day" photos soon... I'll try not to make it another month from now ;)

one year

It was right around this time last year that I photographed my niece, Alexus, for the first time.  I can hardly believe that an entire year has gone by…and I really can’t believe how much she has grown up in that year.  If you’d like to take a little trip down memory lane, click here to see my post of those first photos when she was just a few weeks old.

And now, a year later, enjoy some photos of her from her first birthday party.


A few days after the party, I went over and had a one year session with Lexi.  It really is amazing how our sessions have changed over the past year.  At the beginning it was a matter of plopping a baby down in some good lighting, and seeing if we could get her to smile.  Now, I find myself chasing a toddler around with the camera, trying to catch all the giggles and smiles I can.


I’m really looking forward to another year of photographing this little doll.

Happy first birthday to my favorite one-year-old! :)
