The moment she realizes not all cameras are digital. #kidsportraits 
What am I thankful for? Well, to be completely honest, I’m thankful that I survived hosting 19 at Thanksgiving this year. Here are some of the reasons why. 1. I’m an introvert. 2. No one in my family had a meltdown while we were in prep or hosting mode (this includes me, my husband and my 3 children - 23,21, 16). 3. I prepared a meal that was free of dairy, egg, wheat/gluten, tree nuts, and peanuts which reduced a whole lot of worry for me as the parent of 2 food allergic kids and also for my food allergic friend. This relieved a whole lot of worry, and no one complained that the food was a little different. I’m also thankful that I photographed a few key moments in the midst of all of the chaos. When I made this photo I had been in the kitchen preparing the remaining platters when I heard laughter and chatter. I grabbed my camera and came upon this scene of my husband and 3 kids serving our guests - everyone was happy, and now I have this photo to remind me that hosting is a lot of work, and can be stressful, especially for introverts, but always worth it. ——————
I am so excited to be participating in #loopof52clicks: a weekly loop where we share a photo from a monthly photography challenge. We hope you will follow along on our journey and be inspired to try some new techniques as well. This month’s theme is “Documentary ” Feel free to participate in the challenge with us by tagging your photos #loopof52clicks_documentary. Next in the loop is @jamye_marie .

During this season of thanks and gratitude We do a lot of hosting and by far my favorite part is decorating! My style is simple, understated elegance and country comfy. This year we had an unusually large crowd and had to set up 3 tables in our small dining room to seat everyone comfortably. But that wasn’t all bad - more decorating for me! If you host, do prefer cooking or decorating? .

This is the baby of our family and there couldn’t be a more accurate image to represent where this boy is at in life right now. He’s got a selection of Real Madrid jerseys that he would wear every single day if he could. He’s obsessed with soccer and is the most competitive person I know. Always with a ball at his feet training or kicking it against the walls in the house. 🤦🏻‍♀️ His current life plan is to play for Real Madrid and buy me a house there so I can go to all of his games. Seems like a solid retirement plan for me! 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ This little charmer is about to turn 8 and still likes me to snuggle him to sleep every night. He cuddles me obsessively (posessively? 😬) and even convinced me to ride in the backseat all the way to Idaho so he could hold my hand the whole way. He’s a social butterfly who would play outside with the neighborhood kids until well after dark if we let him. Personality-wise he’s 100% Scott - with all the intensity and none of the filter, lol! 😂 I’m so grateful for this sweet soul who completed our family! 💙

I love hosting family gatherings. This year we are heading out of town, but if we were hosting, we’d be serving Thanksgiving dinner on my collection of mis-matched thrift store china. 
My little shadow always wants to help, so having her on my hip, licking the spoon is very true to life for us 💕

“Milk in his Mustache” - I can’t think of a more perfect image to capture this in-between stage for the boy who made me a mother. He’s nearly 14, his feet are bigger than mine, he’s caught up to me in height, and he’s getting hair on his upper lip. But he’s also still into kid shows, loves playing on playground equipment, and doesn’t notice when he has food all over his face - which is every time he eats or drinks anything. 😂 He still prefers food from the kids menu, but his growing appetite means that needs 3 of the kids meals to feel full. He’s full of teenage attitude, rolls his eyes at me so hard that I can only see the whites of his eyes, and generally gives off the impression that he thinks I know nothing about life. BUT - he also isn’t embarrassed to give me hugs in front of his friends and say “I love you.” And he’s told me on 2 separate occasions in the past week that Scott and I are his best friends and his favorite superheroes. So maybe we’re not *totally* screwing things up with our firstborn. I love this boy something fierce and couldn’t be more grateful to have this artistic, silly soul call me Mom. 💙

Boudoir sessions were the first sessions I took clients for. 
A decade ago now. And this stunning lady was one of our first clients!
•
It started small and organically. I did the graphic designing of gifts for clients my roommate/friend would photograph - then took a few sessions myself.
•
Mostly what drove me to this work was the session I experienced as a model for my husband.
•
I’ve branched out to families, being a photographer beyond designer myself now, but I will never stop shooting these sessions and getting in them myself.
•
It was the first time I saw photos of myself and thought “Wow? Is that really me?!” Not in a vain way. I’m just not sure I had stopped to take the time to see or celebrate the pieces I love about my body.
•
And it happens for my clients every time. 
We often cry over it. 
It’s empowering and vulnerable and oh so rewarding.
•
It’s a bucket list item, even if it’s not with me. Sure, do it as a gift for someone else, it might also be a gift for you.

This boy. He’s one of a kind. He’s a lover of learning and is particularly drawn to science, math, and learning to speak Norwegian. He’s in the chess club, reads “Chemistry for Dummies” for fun, and he marches unashamedly to his own beat. He stands up for what’s right and shines his kind light out into the world. We couldn’t have made him happier with this T-shirt souvenir from Portugal! It’s his new favorite! I couldn’t be more grateful to have this uniquely wonderful soul call me Mom. 💙💙💙

When I began photography it was so I could capture our family and hopefully make family portraits a bit less painful for my husband 😂... this year our little one had different ideas, what matters is it captured us as we are right now and in that moment.

I am a sucker for beautifully planned and articulated portraits, but sometimes the magic is in the real moments.

Well as you know, I love Christmas and these kids have definitely followed in my footsteps, so what better thing to do on a snowy day like yesterday, than to write letters to Santa!🎅🏻 Ollie, as usual had to get in on the action.

Also-Hoorayyyyy! Thank you so so much to all of you who entered the mentorship giveaway - truly it means SO much to me to see how many people entered and honest to God I am honored. 
The winner of the portfolio review is Jennifer Tate and the one hour of 1:1 is @manfella ! .

3 weeks on...
And life is starting to return to normal. Little lady’s arrival took a huge toll on my body, but this week I’ve managed to regain a little normality. I managed to make it to the school run this week, where I was met by a very excited M, who exclaimed (across a crowded playground), “Mummy, you can walk!” So with the School routine back up and running, a visit to parents evening and a trip into town, I feel like it’s fair to say I’m ‘smashing it!’ - maybe not 😂 #csection #postpartum #mumlife

It’s November and that means it’s time to offer up gratitude to where it is most deserved. Today I am thankful for photography, generally speaking, and more specifically for self-portraiture which has truly changed the course of my life. It’s helped me to see myself in a whole new way, to work through my art from a different perspective and opened up a whole new world of friendships. And while I’m at it, I’m also thankful that our 6 month home renovation is finally complete, and that we got our garage back before the first snowstorm - which always happens to be an awesome location for self-portraits!
✨✨✨✨✨. Welcome to our Gratitude Loop. Life is busy and chaotic and it's easy to get lost in the stress.

Happy FriYAY! We're so excited to celebrate Aunt Jess and Uncle Mark this weekend! Their wedding is tomorrow and we're en route with the flower girl, a ring bearer and enough clothes for a couple weeks😬🙈😂 I was so happy to capture some of my favorite details in these photos - her dimple, her two little teeth, the way she's started smiling with her entire face, and her little nose😍

Happy FriYAY! We're so excited to celebrate Aunt Jess and Uncle Mark this weekend! Their wedding is tomorrow and we're en route with the flower girl, a ring bearer and enough clothes for a couple weeks😬🙈😂 I was so happy to capture some of my favorite details in these photos - her dimple, her two little teeth, the way she's started smiling with her entire face, and her little nose😍 #cys_details  #fam_windowlight  #oem_fromabove  #cc_lookingdown  #mom_hub1126  #stunningbabies  #candidchildhood   #dearestviewfinder  #mymagicalmoments  #cameramama

I'm scared I might get murdered any minute if I don't take him out of the house!! 😩
We have been locked inside for a while as the quality of the air is so bad since the #wildfire started! Today it seems like the worst day of all... I can't even see the mountains outside the window 😭 
We are 80 miles away from it, and we are struggling... I can't even imagine how people who lost their homes are dealing with it... It's all so sad!

What are you guys doing to entertain yourself and little ones inside?
I decided to play with my camera and risked some #freelensed shots... Not so bad for my first time, ha? #canonfanphoto #tsj_indoor #fam_windowlight #fridayfeeling #thefreelensedproject

I bought a pack of 102 vinyl snowflakes on amazon. because a facebook ad told me to. and i’m a sucker for a holiday product that gives me false hope that my kids will engage in a quiet activity together peaceably. spoiler alert: they all fought over the identical sheets of stickers and argued over snowflake placement for 20 minutes. ❄️

And, while ending vacation is always sad, the best part about coming home is being reunited with the ones we love.  Your mother wasn’t able to join us on our trip, so y’all were besides yourself with happiness to be back in her arms (and she may have shed a tear or two). She’ll have to come with us next time ❤️

A roooaaaring Friday to everyone!!!
A roooaaaring Friday to everyone!!!
We kicked mom and dad out of the bedroom and did some special photos to be a “surprise”. It’s a great way to get kids to relax and have more fun - when they think they’re in on a secret!! And then I look at these, and as a big sister myself all I can see is the secrets they will share and the fun they will have. And I can’t wait to document it all. ❤️❤️ .

When your two hour delay changes to a school closing for snow! If you look closely you will see her pj shirt is inside out in the hopes that snow would arrive overnight. She may have also slept with a spoon under her pillow. 😀

We have spent so much of this year working on his fine motor skills. He could do some truly amazing things physically, but was kind of clueless when you handed him a crayon. We’ve come so far this year. He still doesn’t have much patience for coloring, but he’s getting there. 🖤 •

I am taking a wonderful Self Portrait Course with @ourkiddo and just completed one of our assignments to recreate a piece of art. If anyone is looking for a great class on self portraits I highly recommend Laura’s!

I feel that I have lived many lives, I'm sure this is true for most people. Before I was a mother and photographer I was a professional concert singer. I composed, performed and recorded for over 10 years. It was thrilling and hard. 
I had just finished a concert tour, along the east coast of the United States, when I found out I was pregnant. I decided to take a break. My decision was made firm when we found out my husband was being transferred for his job and I had no desire to try and pull together new musicians to work with while caring for a newborn.

After my daughter was born I fell hard for photography and it gave me the artistic outlet I needed and allowed me to be home with her. While I have not given up music it plays a much lesser role in my life at the moment. When I stumbled across this painting I felt a kinship with this woman, she loves her music, yet she sit in solitude without an audience enjoying herself.

Don’t  judge them by their sizes. These girls got big personalities. Totta is always sweet and playful, sometimes a bit too much, like when she bites your socks non stop. Catalina, she could be both sweet and grumpy with a 1 second gap in between. Don’t talk to her before breakfast (not proud to say that she got it from her mama). .

Hello! I'm @alydawnphoto Alyssa! This is a self portrait of me and my babe, breastfeeding. I've been wanting to create a hub like this for a while and finally got the courage to do it.

In the future I will possibly start doing weekly themes, but for now, we'll keep it simple.

I want to feature beautiful Mama's. I want to feature their stories. I want to pass love all around. I want to make people feel loved. So start tagging and I'll start featuring 💞😊 for now this week, I'll feature some of my own motherhood work and then once I get going I'll feature all you beautiful Mama's! Let's build a community full of love and support for mothers everywhere. As a matter of fact, woman everywhere!

Tag a friend you think would LOVE this new hub. 💞

I do not think I caught all Diego's excitement about this experience.
From the first moment on the plane to the last day there were many emotions! How nice is to live this experience through the eyes of your child.

I wanted to start off by saying, whatever way you feed your babies, you are AMAZING. You did what was best for you and your baby. And for that, you are an awesome mama. For me, what works best is breastfeeding. And although I 100% encourage breastfeeding for all new Mama's, I recognize that it's not the best option for everyone.

I'm so thankful for my body, for the amazing little person it created, for being able to feed that little person. Our bodies can do AMAZING things. I will miss this stage when it passes.

Catching up on #thankfulnovember18 - I'm thankful for my body, as well as my favorite color (that teal blue on my dress!). And this is my work. Taking care of that sweet little blonde. 💙 I'm so blessed!

"Shallow values produce empty victories." What are you reaching for? Maybe you aren't a dreamer, but we are all reaching for something. You might just be reaching for the remote or it might be designer jeans. You could be striving towards a better life for your kids or trying to be the CEO of the next big thing. There is nothing inherently wrong with any of those, but just realize you only have two arms. The number of things we can reach for is limited. Check your values, check your heart, and be sure that you are reaching in the right direction.

In my next life I’m coming back as a dog, because belly rubs seem like the freaking best. 
And you won’t have to worry about the internet going out and realize how much we depend on it...especially as someone who works from home 😳. That and how much everyone in our house uses Alexa 🤪

One theme... different perspectives...
.
Perspective... this is something that is truly unique. You can have the same table the same objects; but have different people look upon these objects... You will find the individuals nature within the scene and it will allow you to see through their eyes.

Welcome to the #lovefromaboveloop .
This week’s theme from above is “Creative Light”
Next up in the loop is the talented @sarahkossakgupta .

She ran to see the fresh fallen snow and then kissed the window. And, yes, that’s a bandaid on her head; and, no, there’s not a real owie under it; and you best believe she cried hysterically three days later when I dared to rip it off.

Living my best life! These are the days.....

Because everyone needs some inspiration and motivation behind the camera, I have connected with a group of talented friends to challenge and push ourselves in the simple things... not only to be inspired but to perhaps be an inspiration to others.
The theme for #ourlooptyloop this week is "This is Me". Up next is the beautiful @kellyvia .

Do you ever have those moments when you should be telling your child to stop doing something..in this case, putting his dirty fingers all over the clean glass...but instead you just take pictures and probably look like an awful parent to everyone else in the restaurant? Please don't let it just be me. 🤷 #doingitforthegram

There’s no school today, so I have all three of my wild hyenas home. I love how these two naturally come together. Their love of imaginative play makes me smile. Usually Ashton’s the baby and Jillie is the mommy. Or Ashton is the cat and Jillie is the owner. Or they argue whether to play princesses or Pokémon or Harry Potter; and I issue a lot of reminders to talk nicely to one another.
.
This given moment was from a few weeks ago when Ashton was doing his reading homework. He likes to read to Jillie. He set up this scene himself; I just happened upon it.

I used to do a Day in the Life shoots often. At least a few times a year. My family would just know when they awoke to a camera in their faces that today was going to be one of those days. But I’ve slacked and it’s been a good year since my last documented day of our lives. No more! I’m back! Here’s to more cameras in your faces, family. You’ve been warned.
.
This particular day was last Tuesday, and you can find it’s entirety in my stories. (Plus last year’s version of this photo as a bonus.)
.
.
The days are long, but the years are short. Welcome to our #dayinthelifeproject_seasons
.
We are a group of mamas out to capture every hour in a single day once a season. Here is our first round featuring a fall day. Check out each artist’s stories to see the full set of images from their day. We have all posted our favorite image of the day in our feeds, so be sure sure to follow the loop and check out everyone’s projects. Next up: @sweetwallymomma

This was a long journey. After a 13 hr flight, we took a bus to the train station then took a 2 hr bullet train ride. We landed in China to see the sunrise and got to my grandpa’s just in time for the sunset 😂。 ______________________________________________________

Art + nature = fun. We call these Leaf Monsters. But they’re not scary, Jillie says. They’re nice monsters.

(Check my stories for the b+a and a pull back of the scene.)

One theme, 10 different perspectives...

Perspective... this is something that is truly unique. You can have the same table, the same objects, but have different people look upon these objects... You will find the individual’s nature within the scene and it will allow you to see through their eyes.
