Oh hey there sweet boy. Yes I forgive you for the ear pricing screeching you have been into recently. No big. Basically you can get away with just about anything when you look at me like that 😏😉 #skykingston #magicofchildhood
I can’t get enough of this little lady, ever. She’s become the most cuddly, smiley and interactive person with so much curious about the world around her.
The hat she has is wearing was my baby hat that my mother had saved all these years, and the booties are a very special gift from a friend that you might have heard me talk about a few months back. Melissa @josiahandco
is a mom who makes these adorable warm baby booties by hand as a means of healing and remembering babies that did not get to have a life outside the womb. She is a touching storyteller and a master knitter of these adorable and super practical little treasures.

You. Guys. You see this right?
I’ve got nothin. Pure childhood beauty and innocence wrapped in a golden hour, pink field, boho image. .
This kid asks daily, do I have something in my ear? Sometimes he strikes it rich.
Always a soft spot for dads and their little girls. Her tiny hand goes straight to my heart.

Maternity sessions always give me really BIG feels. It is an honor to capture such a pivotal moment in the lives of others. One of my biggest regrets is not having done photosessions for my pregnancies. I allowed my self-consciousness to deter me from having them done. If I am being totally honest, like painful honest, pregnancy for me physically wasn’t too bad but man was it hard on my mental health. (The labor/birth is a whole other story 😅)But I do wish I could go back and tell my pregnant self to just do the dang thing, get those photos done. And to be present in this season, let go of negativity and enjoy the journey in all of it’s uncomfortable messy glory. Because mama It’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be totally worth it.

It would be remiss of me not to mention how thankful I am this year. To be candid though, not a day goes by that I don't think about how blessed I am. #grateful
This weekend is about family and remembering how much we have to be thankful for! We are thankful for you! Come join our shop family by joining our VIP group on Facebook!
A little SP Take last week...or was it 2 weeks ago, who the heck knows?! Things have been moving at full steam over here and sometimes ya just gotta put on the breaks, Pour a big glass of red, And collapse on your kitchen floor. 🤣 or in my case, mix yoga with wine and take a picture while you’re at it. 🤣
Of all of the things to be thankful for (the list is countless) the one thing that rings true to my life would be traditions and storytelling. As a child, during Thanksgiving, we would make the four hour drive to my grandparents home and spend the week with them. There house was a ranch style, set in a suburban neighbor, and at the time, before it developed more, I guess you could say they lived in the country-ish. We would drive up to their home, enter the driveway and the garage door would magically begin to open and they would walk out and greet us at the car. We would go inside from the cold weather, and be welcomed by the thermostat set at a stable 90 degrees and we would all change into shorts and t-shirts. My grandpa was a wonderful story teller, (I miss hearing his stories so much) and he and my grandma would have us come into the dinning room and once the dinner had been eaten, cleared and cleaned, he would get a tin of cookies out of the closet, gingersnap, set them on the table, get a deck of cards from the oak armoire and we would play hearts and enjoy sweets until 10pm. During this time, I feel that I learned so much about where I came from- because they would just talk and share and I would just listen and I loved it. Form how hey met at the roller skating rink, to flying over Saint Elmo’s fire and so on, finding out “where I come from” has been a very fun mystery to slowly solve, and because of the time well-spent together, I feel such a deep appreciation for the past. If I could have one more day to relive with someone, it would be them, it would be simple and we would share cookies and play hearts so I could “shoot the moon” one last time with my favorite people. 🎄🎄Welcome to #ourlittleholidayloop

There’s just something about dads and their little girls that just gets me every time. It’s probably because I know they willingly play dress up and can sing the Vampirina theme song by heart (you’re singing it now aren’t you 😂). There’s something pretty sweet about that.
Sorry it’s been too long since I’ve shared any love on insta!!! Thanksgiving is coming up which means family time, holiday cheer, and lots of yummy food! So thankful to have shot this adorable family session last weekend! These little boys were filled with energy and giggles! They made all of us smile especially their proud parents! 🍂🦃🍁
I’ve been a bit quiet on the social front, ‘tis the silly season after all! But I’m back and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to! This little lad and his gorgeous family are getting their gallery tonight and I can’t wait for them to see it. Don’t ya just love how he’s resting his little mouth on Dad’s shoulder. My youngest does this to me too when she comes in for a cuddle... and while she might slobber on me, I still think it’s the sweetest and I’ll miss it when she stops.
Double tap if you hate doing the dishes! 🙋🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️

The best part of having kids is getting share all the best parts of your world with them. You rediscover your favorite places and experience adventures with a new sense of wonder. They remind you to stop and enjoy the little things and try a new path that maybe you’ve always overlooked. Sharing those things you hold dear with the people you love most, that’s all that really matters in this life.
My favorite game for toddlers who are sick of photos is ring around the parents. Works every time. ✨👌
I’m a strong believer that the fuller the hands the fuller the heart. Ask me again when I have more kids but c’mon moments like this. That’s the good stuff.
What an amazing camping trip this was. Just blown away by God’s goodness and beauty!
Her heart is wild + full of magic ✨
Everly is off for her big school orientation today! 😭 She is SO excited to join her big brothers at school + meanwhile I’ll just sit in the corner + cry! 🙈😭😂 .
Anyone else sending their babies off to school next year?
We made sugar cookie dough today so we can bake tomorrow. I took a picture of Gwen standing on her little stool looking cute while mixing, and then almost died when she said, “You should use that thing so we can take pictures of both of us.” YES, please. Literally ran to grab the intervalometer before she changed her mind. This is such a great solution for camera-averse kids. (Ahem. We all know #photographerschildsyndrome
is a real thing.) I don’t have to bug her to try to get a good shot; I just set it down on the counter and continue what we’re doing. I know I already raved about this wonderful thang, but photo friends, if you didn’t see that post, you NEED one! I love it. Today I set it to take a frame every two seconds and just let it do its thing for a minute or so while we did ours. So easy. #our_everyday_moments
She is wild and drives me crazy and oh how I love her✨
Ready when you are Bebe 👶
And I thought I loved you then.
