Last month I shared that my daughter started preschool & I couldn't have imagined it going any better!
She is learning so much more than I ever could have taught her at home.
No matter how many times I had tried to teach her to count past 11, she always got hung up on the teens, but her teacher must be a magician {and a saint} because not only is she counting to 20, but in just a month she's counting to 30 and beyond!!
I am one proud mama!
 
Last week, Norah got awarded the Star Student title!
She got to be line leader whenever they left the classroom, there was a day where her teacher shared all of her favorites with the class, and most importantly, she got to bring home their class "pet," Sparky!!  Norah had the job of caring for him and I had the job of  documenting all of their activities in a photo journal.
My favorite 4 this month are of Norah & Sparky doing some of her favorite things from sharing an Oreo milkshake, jumping in puddles, going to the library, and going camping!
It was sad to return him to the classroom on Friday, but with any luck he will be back before the end of the year.

Four years ago we welcomed our first little girl into the world.  When she was born, everyone told us not to blink because the time would fly by.  I remember thinking that I would do everything in my power to make it different for us.  We would make the days long and the moments extra special & as much as we strive to do that each day, I have to admit, they were right... it has flown right on by!
The last week of August we sent our first baby off to preschool!
I must have blinked...
Everyone tells me how much faster time flies once your kids are in school & I'm not sure I'm ready for that whirlwind of time.
Be still my heart!!
 
The night before her first day of school I took her into downtown to take her Back to School photos {and to spoil her with ice cream... I am not below bribery when it comes to photographing my kids}. ;)  She is so excited for this new chapter in her life and I am so scared to trust somebody else to love and care on my baby.  She has been by my side since day 1!!  This is a whole new world for me!

Last month we took a weekend vacation to Oklahoma.
It was a wonderful little getaway.
My husband had a huge project coming up at work, so we thought this would be the perfect time to sit back and unwind {can you do that on vacation with littes??}.
 
Our cabin was lovely.
There was a foosball table out on the porch, a hot tub, and my favorite... a hammock.
My favorite images are those of my girls out on the hammock and enjoying the outdoors.
It was a nice, short stay in the cabin. 
My 4 year old speaks often of "our other home."
If only!!!
 

July 4 on 4 - {Summer} - DFW Area Photographer

Hi, there!
I am a family photographer in Providence Village, TX and service the DFW area.  I'm originally from the northeast and have spent most of my life in Vermont.
I never thought my heart would find a home in Texas, but I love it here in this busy metroplex.

For this month, I'm going with a summer theme since I feel as if we have lived in or around the water lately.
 
We live in Texas.
It's hot here!!!
 
This summer seems to be record temperatures, too, so it's either A/C or water for us.
And, with a 4 year old and a 1 year old, we need to find fun ways to get the wiggles out.
 
My oldest is a fish... kind of.  She loves the water, but is extremely hesitant to go under.
We bought a GoPro at Christmas time and I have been itching for an opportunity to use it in the water.  Summer couldn't get here fast enough.
When I captured my 4 year old going under water for the first time EVER, I was ecstatic.  It just confirmed why I love photography.
This image will be framed and featured in our home for many years.

She is a little toy thief.  It never fails, every time we go to our community pool, no matter how many toys we bring, she wants to play with everyone else's.  And, in turn, they get to play with her toys!  Community pool.... community toys.  Win, win!

{seriously, those blue Texas skies are to die for!!!}

This is my youngest.
She is so different from her sister in a lot of ways...
She has curly hair, she said "mama" first, and she LOVES to eat!!
She also loves sunglasses, so don't even think about wearing a pair.  She'll take them right off of your head.
She is one cool girl!
And, lastly, this picture captures so much of my 4 year old that only her mama would pick up on!
Those knotty ringlets... we have never cut her hair & I know the second we do, those baby curls will be gone.
She is holding her favorite mermaid.  If she could be any Disney Princess, I think she would be Ariel {ok, she would probably say Anna, but this girl LOVES mermaids}.
The dirt on her little baby tush, peaking out of her bathing suit... 
...and what you can't see in this picture is she's terrified to run through that sprinkler.  We were all giving her pep talks trying to get her to run through.  It only happened once or twice.

That's it... June summed up in 4 pictures!  I can't wait to see what July has in store for us!
