Today is my favorite day. August 5th. It’s the day that I get to look into my husband’s eyes and tell him (like I do often!) that I’m happy to be married to him, that I love him more than ever and that I would choose him all over again. 15 years ago today, I was a very tiny, nervous, and in love, 19 year old and I walked down an aisle towards a very tall, awkward, and in love, 23 year old. We knew absolutely nothing except for the fact that we would literally lay down our lives for each other and we both have done that again and again over the course of these 15 years.

While in Paris a couple months ago, we had a special photo session done at the Trocadero, looking out onto the Eiffel Tower. It was absolutely surreal and I am very thankful to our photographer Stacey Reeves for these priceless photos that we will cherish forever.

This family was just so lovely, so fun and so relaxed. That isn’t an easy combination to achieve when you have a toddler and a newborn! But this mom is full of grace and I can see how blessed they feel to be a family. I shot way too many photos this session, and enjoyed every one of them. Check out baby brother’s nursery, what an amazing space to live in, full of personal touches and all done by his very talented mommy!!

Instead of each day wondering what kind of photo to take, I wake up wondering what memory I will want to freeze. Each day has it’s own joy and I want photos that we can look back on and remember what happened…



Like how we found a perfectly intact butterfly while we camped in Tahoe (which unfortunately, one of us pulled an antenna off of it!)




Like how it is still light outside when it’s time for the kids to get ready for bed…




Like how my nephew eats his apple, sinking his teeth into it over and over until the apple is barely eaten and it’s forgotten in the grass… July1-3web




Like how we made a special trip to Home Depot to pick out a cactus and amazingly it is still alive after a few weeks…




Like how restrictions on sugar are very few and far in-between…and that’s ok because they run it off in the sprinklers, pool or bikes…




And when Captain America waved to them at the 4th of July parade, putting a smile on their faces…

This challenge is beginning to be much more eclectic than I set out for it to be! Instead of just capturing Summer images, I’m finding myself capturing moments I just want to remember. That is why I take photos in the first place, for myself or for other people. So we can remember.

Once June 1st came, I quit numbering my 100 days and just went to labeling them the date they were taken! I do know by now I’ve officially been shooting daily for three weeks…and I still love it. Here’s what has been happening since June 1st.

He’s already four weeks old now…the days go by way too quickly (especially for his parents, but also for his Aunt who loves him so much!) But here he is at one day old… (see his mommy’s maternity session here.)
