Finally met & took a few pictures of Emma, Katie & Isaac's daughter.

I can't wait to take their family photos in a few months!

This is Noah when he was three months old.

Christian woke up this morning crying that he was not feeling well. I agreed to let him stay home, so he ended up taking a long nap. When he woke up, he was feeling so much better & now he is ready for school tomorrow. Sucks that he missed the first day back, but sickness strikes whenever it feels like it & doesn't care much about time.

I attempt the 365 photo challenge every year, but somehow never make it past Summer. I really do enjoy the photo challenge though so here's day one! The difference this year is Christian won't be my subject every day. He gets tired of me taking a picture of him every day so I will have to find something interesting in my every day boring life to photograph. It will definitely be a challenge!

My family & I traveled to Georgia to see family we had not seen in over five years. I loved watching Christian interact with his grandparents. <3

Basically the visit consisted of eating a bunch of delicious cookies & staying up super late. I took a bunch of photos of our airplane rides & of John, Michelle, & Ben talking about video games. We opened awesome presents for Christmas & ate delicious food.  I had an awesome time visiting with them. Felt like we never even left. Hopefully, we will go back sooner than five years.

My sister in law, Michelle, & her boyfriend, Ben.

Christian & his gramma built & painted some birdhouses! 

Kinda weird to see someone using a phone attached the wall, right?
Gotta document that for the future.

I really had an awesome time photographing Michelle & Ben. They just celebrated their one year dating anniversary. Seriously one of my favorite couple's photo shoot I've done so far. Click the link below to see their photos. <3

The day after Christmas, I finally got to meet Elizabeth & Abby. And then I forced everyone to stand together to take pictures. I can't wait to print these ones out!

I have photographed this family three times - the first maternity session, their family session, & now this session, which I freakin' adore:

Didn't get very many pictures tonight since it was pretty dark. These are just a few before the light went dark. We ended up having to go to another neighborhood since everyone has kids & was out. Hah!
