welcome to the world Piper

My very first lifestyle session was with this beautiful little babe. I absolutely adore the photos. It was so relaxing & fun to go into my client's home to do the newborn session. In fact, I am doing two blog posts because I just couldn't narrow it down to one :) (to see more of her session, click here)

Welcome to the world, sweet Piper!


weeeee on the swings

'One swing set, well worn but structurally sound, seeks new home.Make memories with your kid or kids so that someday he or she or they will look into the backyard and feel the ache of sentimentality as desperately as I did this afternoon. It's all fragile and fleeting, dear reader, but with this swing set, your child(ren) will be introduced to the ups and downs of human life gently and safely, and may also learn the most important lesson of all: No matter how hard you kick, no matter how high you get, you can't go all the way around.' - John Green

Our local park is well worn. Actually it's fair to say it's over worn. 20+ years ago, I swung on these swings. Today the equipment rusts away & sits haphazardly. A new park will be built in the near future. For this, I am thankful.

my 2(+1) on 2sday: 30 toes

'Brothers & sisters are as close as hands & feet.' -Vietnamese Proverb

Our week: healthy kiddos- finally. daytrip to Anchorage for Ry's doctor appointment- exhausting! bare feet- dirty laundry? tummy time- Ella's getting strong! fresh air & lots of rain...happy Tuesday! p.s. one thing I learned? capturing 30 tiny toes in one picture can actually be an adventure!

cm monthly challenge: sweetness & love

February has ended & with March comes my post for the Clickin Mom's monthly challenge. This month our group is focusing on 'how I view sweetness & love.' There are so many ways to define these two words. I knew I wanted to photograph my boys for it, but wasn't sure what setting to use...so I let the wild rumpus start on the bed. They wrestle, tackle & irritate each other just as often as they make each other laugh & smile & it all usually ends with hugs & kisses. My boys are my sweetness & love, just as they are that for one another...enjoy & be sure to check out all the other work this month.

Thanks for stopping by & please be sure to head on over to view how Susan views 'sweetness & love' (Susan Edge Photography).
