I babysat for her family before she was born. Her and her two older sisters grew up across the street from me and were more like little sisters than kids next door. I can’t believe how time has flown by and how beautiful inside and out Anna has become. We had so much fun with Anna and Lynn (her mom) while taking her Senior photos. We had wardrobe malfunctions, an adventure out in the field seen in the photos below, and so many more funny things that made us all laugh! Love you Anna and I wish you the best next year as you start your final year of high school!


A BIG congratulations to my cousin Emily and her fiance Kenny! They will be getting married next August and we are so happy for them! Growing up Emily and her sister Ali were more like sisters to me than cousins. I remember one time they were at our house and we were giving them a bath when a tornado came! We had to pull them out of the tub and run to the bathroom downstairs! I’ve watched her grow up into an amazing, ambitious and loving young woman, and I’m so excited to see what’s in store for these two in the years to come!


On our way back to the USA this summer from Bahrain we decided to break up the trip and stop in Rome, Italy for a week. Luke had never been and I was eager to show him the sites! Rome is a wonderful city with so much history and beautiful architecture. I went about 8 years ago and exploring the city this time around with a one year old was let’s just say a bit more challenging. We had a lovely time though and it was a great stop off before heading home to family and friends for the summer.


To help me with Myla’s one year photos I recruited Sam, Charlotte and their amazing Mom, Katy. I knew trying to get Myla to stay in one spot and handle my camera would be quite the challenge, so I asked them for help in return for some cute photos. Here are a few of my favorites of these adorable kiddos!


It’s been quite some time since I’ve had a chance to make a blog post…probably almost a year! Yikes! This past year has been quite the roller coaster. We started our new jobs, welcomed Myla into our lives and traveled to over 5 countries! With that being said, I’m going to try to do better this year as far as blogging about sessions I do, our travels and just every day life. To start, here are my two favorite photos from Myla’s one year photos back in April. They were taken in the Kingdom of Bahrain – our new home.
