Spring Flowers & Spring Showers

If it weren’t for the spring showers we wouldn’t have these beautiful flowers, so instead of being bummed our spring picnic got rained out I am going to be grateful for the amazing time we had regardless. It took me a day to come to this conclusion, I was pretty bummed that I couldn’t continue with the planned out shoot I was imaging but after seeing these kiddos embrace the weather and play together outside, it all felt so right!

My in-laws grow daffodils and whatever they don’t end up picking blooms in the field, this year we took advantage of the beauty and captured our kiddos. It was a pleasure to have Julie of Quantum Images Inc out in the field capturing the chaos of 8 kids and 5 adults playing around the flowers. We had some good falls and one of my favorite parts of all was coming in when we were finished and Sophie said, “Fun.. Mommy!…. Fun!”

  • When you aren't wearing make up how do you feel? Honestly, does it feel good and fresh or do you feel like you aren't put together? A few weeks ago I picked up my daughter from preschool and was feeling insecure about the fact that I wasn't wearing makeup, I wondered what other moms were going to think. As the thought passed through my mind I had a laugh that I even dwelled on it. I reminded myself that I don't care what others think of me. I'm confident in who I am and some days I just don't have time for makeup.

  • Today was basically a bucket full of tulips, long but overflowing with goodness. Making a conscious effort to put down the social media / work emails and be more present. It feels good.
