East Timor: Not my normal blog post

December 17, 2017

Dear Wyatt

This isn’t my normal blog post, but my son is anything but normal when it comes to some things, so I figured it was appropriate for his blog.

Wyatt and I have been reading this book, Junior Genius Guides: Maps and Geography by Ken Jennings, as we go to bed each night. I’m usually the one that pushes for a more “story” kind of book as opposed to facts. But I really am starting to like this book. Tonight we ended with the activity called first and last. It’s where you name a place: City, state, country, continent, ocean, mountain, landmark. And then the next person has to name one that starts with what yours ended with. And if you can’t you’re out.

As we named places I thought about what the book said earlier in the chapter. That National Geographic surveyed college aged Americans only 70% could find the…

Maggie 7 month portraits

December 17, 2017

My Dear Maggie


As I look down at your sleeping face all I can think about is how blessed I am to have you in my life. Your perfect little nose, your lips pursed together as if the bottle was still in your mouth, your plump cheeks that everyone always talks about how they want to just kiss them all over, your eye lids closed just right not too tight but just enough, resting each on the other. You are beautiful. You are perfect. You are a gift from God. You make our family perfect, and whole.

Your heart is beautiful. Everyday I see you and your brother interacting together and the love you have for each other and I just know our family is whole. The way he comes over to give you a kiss when you cry or bump your head and only his kisses make you all better again…

Wyatt 6 year portraits

December 12, 2017

Dear Wyatt

Dear Wyatt,

Wow you’re 6 years old!!! Its crazy. I don’t even know where to start. Right now I am trying to write you this letter while in the other room you are playing the “Velociraptors Storybot” song and running around pretending to be a velociraptor. So pardon my focus.

You have grown up so much over the past year. You have become a big brother, and honestly I have never known a big brother as amazing as you are, and I had a pretty amazing one. From the moment Maggie was born, and honestly even before, I knew you two would be close, and I knew there was so much love between the two of you. I still can picture like it was yesterday you coming to visit us in the hospital, Aunt Michelle and Uncle Scott Myers brought you. You walked in with flowers and a cute toy…

Miller Family Portraits

December 11, 2017

A few weeks ago I was so honored to take the portraits of the Miller family. The boys were so much fun to photograph. Their personalities were so photogenic and I think really came through in the images. Erin really wanted some pictures with the fall colors in the background so we went to one of my favorite places to see the brilliant fall colors. We spent a lot of time enjoying the weather, it was beautiful. And patiently waited for the sun to be in the perfect spot for the perfect lighting. The boys were very patient, I was so impressed. Its really nice to see two siblings getting along and really being friends with each other. I am sure it isn’t always this way, but it was really nice to see that day. Thank you so much Erin for the opportunity to capture your family. You have a beautiful family. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures.


Wyatt 6 year: Sneak Peek

Dear Wyatt

Yep he’s 6. I can’t believe it either. Here is a sneak peek of our shoot the other day. A huge thank you to my friend and assistant Lindsay for always finding time over the years to help me with Wyatt’s photoshoots. He kind of loves her. And no matter how much time has passed since he has seen her, he always asks for her to come help.

Maggie 6 Month portraits

November 9, 2017

My Dear Maggie

Dear Maggie,

Wow this month flew by quickly. You have grown so much over the last month. Well I would like to start with all your life we didn’t think you were small, but apparently you weren’t huge at all. You always were low on the percentile marks at the doctor when it came to your weight, but lets be honest they weren’t the ones carrying you around so what do they know. Needless to say your rolls finally caught up to you. This month at your check up you were in the 81 percentile. Your brother won the guess before they weigh you contest, he guessed 18 lbs. And while he wasn’t exact he was close, you weighed in at 18.1 lbs.

In case you are wondering once you hit a certain age your weight will not be documented for all to see. But while I have you on…
