During our session, their mama showed me her phone; on this day five years ago, I did their last photo session (& I think it was the last time I saw them!). They drove over an hour to come see me for a mini, and I couldn’t have been more excited to see them all! As you can tell from the photos, the kids have grown so much, yet they look exactly the same 😍♥️
A cozy Saturday with a little Jan Brett. What are your favorite winter/holiday books to snuggle up to?
We finally put together our coffee table. It’s meant for the front porch, but I don’t want to wait for Spring 😅. Coffee table legs are handmade from @cascadeironco
and the finished walnut slab is from our local @desmoineshardwoods.

More mini session Christmas magic 😍
I use natural light in the studio, which changes all the time. Some days it’s bright, some days it’s dull. But the best thing about it is that the different light makes every shoot I do unique. Also, check out my new rocking horse!
When you just really love your Mom ❤️
This gotta be the most joyful photo I have taken! Children and animals bring so much joy to our lives! I will never stop counting my blessings 😊 I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and don’t forget to appreciate the little things in life! #whpjoyful

She wants to sleep but she won’t close her eyes. I think she’s making sure that I’m not leaving her. She smirks at me, watches me sip my coffee, and licks her lips imitating me. I wish I could bottle up her sweet little smell and live in these moments forever. #lyraharpe
Your family is beautiful just the way they are. Let me help show you and from now until January 1st get $100 OFF your session! Ps all sessions include a lay flat album 🎉

Baking cookies with my littles 🍪
Tried a few different wee wreaths this week using some wire rings I got in @sostrenegrene
but am now definitely going to have to switch into finishing off my to-do lists rather than all the making loveliness I’ve enjoyed!!! If you want some ideas for supporting local families running businesses this Christmas check out my stories...some amazing independent stores on there!
Hope you’re snuggled in - our day has been wet and wild so glad to be chilled out by the fire this evening! Happy Saturday evening xx
Every Christmas Eve, my Mom would read my brother and I the Polar Express until we heard Santa’s bells outside of our window. We used to bug out in excitement. The next day, we couldn’t wait to see the decorated Christmas tree he would leave on our front porch with two special gifts left hidden in the branches. One year, we received a bell from Santa’s sleigh. 🌙🎄🎅🏻 December really is the most magical time of the year. Spam me with your Christmas family traditions! ❤️
Merry everything and a happy always 🎄
Fresh bay leaf wreaths this year. 🌿
I haven’t been that present lately on Instagram. If you know me, then you know my hiatuses are quite predictable after a while. I am the worst multitasker I know. If something new needs my attention then something else must go 🙈. There was a lot going on at home and my family was over from overseas. .
I had so much creative work planned out to do for Instagram that I just couldn’t bring myself to post regular pictures. Just so badly wanted to do the magical ones only that I obviously didn’t have time for. But I guess something is better than nothing right ( before more of you start unfollowing me🙁 )
Here’s one of my precious cutie all ready for holidays in this beautiful dress from @ralphlauren
😍 . And I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Xx 😘 💕
Lets talk about the three year sleep regression. How serious is it? Apparently it involves excessive night wakings and very early morning wake up- both of which we are dealing with now. It appears I have a newborn again. Either I blocked it from my memory or Ze’ev never went through this one. Please tell me it only lasts a few weeks and we are on the last leg of this. Mama needs sleep.
Oh Hadley, you are perfection 💫
How many of you over-achievers already have your shopping done, presents wrapped, cards sent, and cookies baked?!? Maybe just some of those things done? None of them? I would love to know where everyone is at with less than two weeks til Christmas!
Acting like she’s reading a book....while slowly sneaking up the stairs. Sneaky sneaky👀👀
Grey December days. #film
Look at these beautiful mom-to-be. They are just glowing!
just like every year we have our books Advent calendar
same books like last year-one new
wrapped in paper I’m saving whole year from packages I get or craft paper we use at home for many different projects
the excitement every morning while unpacking another book of the day is the best-kids taking turns ,every day one of them unpack book and have gingerbread cookie from our gingerbread advent calendar .
I’ll post about our Advent books in stories and save it to my highlights
most of the books are about advent time and Christmas ,some are more just winter books
Iv got many books in thrift stores -online is also few good book thrift stores ,some were gifted some bought ,it took years to have 24-and we have even more now )
They stay out till about half of a January and then go back to box to wait for next December and I’ll bring up our seasonal winter books
kids love to see familiar books and stories each year it truly became one of our very favourite Christmas tradition ✨

How naptime looks around here. And sometimes the middle of the night too. It’s kinda the sweetest (and sometimes the hottest) thing ever.
brief. fleeting. golden. magical. whole. #life
On this day last year 😭. No snow this year.
