Evelyn 🌼 Daisy
………..3️⃣🎉……..

.
.
Milestone photos are some of my favorite to photograph especially when they’re of my own kids.
.
.
Our Evelyn turned 3 today. I can hardly believe she’s been part of our family for a whole 3 years. 🥺
She is spunky, sassy and so sweet!!
She loves just about everything but her favorite interests are play-doh, picking flowers, Minnie Mouse and Gabby’s Dollhouse and she’s a huge fan of lollipops. Lately she’s been really into telling knock-knock jokes. She’s always the comedic relief in any room and her sunny disposition really is what I love most about her!
.
.
Happy Birthday to our little Daisy 💛🤍

Sharing the very first from my fall minis!! This sweet girl was such a little ray of sunshine for her mini session! Too cute for words!!

Thanks to everyone for hanging in there, waiting to see your sessions!!

In August, I joined a book business selling children’s books and my busiest season doing that and my busiest season with photography has collided!! 😅

I’m still weeks away from any deadlines- don’t worry!!
I just wanted you all to know on top of being a mama, wife, and photographer I also have that on my plate!! I’ve been LOVING that, just not quite as much as my first love 😉📸

I’m so excited to bring you more mini session images, senior sessions, and a wedding !! Stay tuned and thank you for your support!!

I’m in love with this moody/industrial senior session!!
.
It started to pour down rain in the first 10 minutes of Rowans shoot. That didn’t dampen her mood though and I loved that about her! We got drenched and had a ton of fun! Her parents own this old junk yard up in Chelatchie and it ended up being the perfect spot!! We worked until it was literally dark!
.

I can’t wait to see where life takes you Rowan! I hope you have a great senior year!!
