Day 151

Our baby boy graduated today...he's officially a middle-schooler. His graduation ceremony was this morning and he was definitely the most handsome one there...suit and all! He's had an amazing elementary career with Honor Roll every semester since 1st grade and being a member of many after school clubs. This kid has an amazing future ahead of him and I'm enjoying watching every day go by as he becomes a mature young man. 

You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.You're on your own.And you know what you know.You are the guy who will decide where to go!-- Dr. Seuss

Day 150

The only 19 month old with a cell phone. Well, it my old cell but to her it's a working phone. She'll gibber gabber all day on that thing and sliding it open is not a problem. Messy strawberry banana shake face...gotta love her.

Day 149

I've found my new favorite hand gun! I must admit I love shooting my rifle but this new pistol Pete bought me is pretty awesome. First time shooting it and nearly every shot was dead on...awesome!!!
We took our friend Jackie with us so she could get some practice in with her pistol and I let her shoot my rifle too. Fun morning at the range :)

Not too bad for my first time shooting my new .22!

Day 148

Taking the kiddos out to dinner doesn't happen too often. Luckily we found a place with arcade games to keep them entertained with mommy and daddy had a very quick, quiet moment together.

Day 147


What better way to spend a holiday off with the kiddos then swimming in the pool. I'm pretty sure we spend over seven hours outside and most of that time was in the water. Paige has become such a good swimmer and loves to dive underwater. Kelsey has become so brave and will jump off the ladder and will swim back to do it all over again. I was sad to realize that my GoPro has a scratch on the body lens and can not be replaced, so all of my photos and video have a gray mark to the right of annoying! We will be spending many, many more days like this.

Day 146

A yucky cough means lots of breathing treatments. I'm amazed how she'll hold the mouth piece and sit patiently. Poor thing sounds awful...hope she's better soon!

Day 145

A couple self portraits while I wait to shoot a session in the park. It's hard to get in front of the camera when I'm always behind it.

Day 144

Have you ever seen anyone so happy to clean toilets? And I just love the shirt and shoes with no pants classy.

Day 143

We took a ride to Apopka today to do a walk through of a wedding location I'll be shooting at in a couple weeks. The property had huge oak trees that spread over the entire lawn area. I found one limb that had a little dip in it and I knew I had to put Kelsey in it for a picture. And for all you concerned parents, she was not put in danger for this shot. My mom was behind her the entire time...I just edited her out.

Day 142

There's another aspect of my life that you don't see much. Being a photographer allows me to meet some pretty amazing people and I was lucky enough to spend the morning with a handsome eight day new baby boy and his big sister. If you're on Instagram,  you should follow me and you'll see a few "behind-the-scenes" images from this very session.

Day 141

Happy Birthday to my sweet, intelligent, and funny little guy. I can't believe he's 11 years old and will soon be a middle schooler. He's really grown this past year especially--both physically and emotionally. He's an amazing sone, a wonderful big brother, and (it's hard to imagine,but) a sweet 'boyfriend' to his little friend McKenzie. I love him more and more every day and can't wait to see what he will become.

Day 138

Let's celebrate!
Every year Connor's birthday party gets bigger and bigger and this year was crazy. We started off the day with a Luau themed pool party with water games, limbo, and a fun photo cutout. The kids then sang 'Happy Birthday' while Connor blew the candles out on his beach themed cupcakes I worked ever so hard on. There was punch, chips, and fruit kabobs for snacks (boy can those kid eat). Pete grilled up some hamburgers and hotdogs while I set out the potato salad and coleslaw. 
What a fun and exhausting day...a day I hope Connor will never forget!
