Be a seeker of the everyday magic.  The imagination of these two little (still little in my eyes) beauties is amazing!  You can see their wheels turn.  “H” and “E” have grown so much since the last time we had a session.   Their mama and I always compare the girls and my boys bc really they have a lot of similarities.  The girls balance each other out, just like “J” and “E”.  I’m glad to say, that even though they have physically grown, they still carry the magic of their imagination. Goofiness is part of the cards.  Nothing is too crazy, and they still hold on to the things that bring them calm and comfort.  Keep it going little ladies!  The world is yours!

 

 

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

Our family motto for 2018!  One wind gust in front of the other and adjust our sails as needed.  So true when life gets so busy- sometimes it feels like a hurricane!  Thank goodness I have my anchors- aka my hubby and the boys (and the dog too;))!  Their love and support are unmeasurable.  I have to admit the sarcasm, pranks and jokes in the house are definitely life necessities.  I shake my head and drop my jaw weekly, but it helps keep the balance and has me laughing long after the situation has passed.  My wish for them is that they keep trying and showing up no matter how strong the wind blows.  We will just help adjust the sails for each other and sometimes all together.

This year’s session was a bit simpler- mostly bc time was running out and the weather wasn’t cooperating.  Thank goodness for Harpers Ferry Adventure Center who were so generous with letting me use a canoe.  If you are looking for some fun outdoor activities – definitely check them out!!  I’m not sure how much longer the boys will venture out with me, but here’s to hoping at least until forever;)!!  Well, maybe 18??

I guess I will have to just pray like crazy and cross my fingers!  I hope you all catch some amazing trade winds in 2018! XO

Do what you love. Love what you do!

Happy New Year! Thank you for choosing me capture your stories. I am so grateful for each and every one of you. I always love to go back and reflect on the year, and I have to say 2017 was pretty wonderful! I still can’t believe this year was B2E’s 10th Anniversary! I’m still floored that this is how I get to support my family! I get to spend gorgeous mornings and evenings capturing all the beauty and fun personalities that each one of you brings.

It’s funny, I take a deep breath and just kinda sink into my chair when I send my last gallery of the year. Phew! When I think about all of the wonderful families I get to work with, it makes it all so worth the hustle. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I truly enjoy telling stories with my lens and showing the world what I see. I love creating! I hope to capture your love stories in 2018 and bring your vision to life.

Best wishes for health and happiness in 2018! Stay tuned for the New Year Newsletter! XO
