Happy Anniversary! | Taking Care of Each Other

These two cuties recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary! 25!!! That’s a big deal!!! When Annaliese contacted me about doing a session for her anniversary, my heart melted. I love that she wanted photos of just the two of them. I always try to get “just mom & dad” during a family session, and I’m usually met with “we haven’t done photos like this since our wedding.” All the more reason for me to take them then!!! It’s so important to do things that preserve and strengthen your relationship with your spouse. My husband and I went out for a walk one evening years ago. We ran into some friends who were a few years older and wiser than us who were also out for a walk. In our short conversation, the wife expressed how important it is to do things with each other now because when the kids are grown up and gone, they want to still like each other. It’s kind of funny, like “of course we will still like each other”, but it’s easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the kids, or taking care of your job, or taking care of the house, etc, that you forget to take care of each other. So, whatever anniversary you celebrate next, whatever number of Valentine’s Day this is for you, remember to take care of each other <3


New Life, New Love | Family

This cute family recently welcomed this sweet, little guy to the world. You know, there is something special – or lucky – about being the youngest/one of the youngest kids. When you are a new baby and you have older siblings who are old enough to really dote on you, it’s a really amazing relationship. And when you are the fifth or sixth, etc kid with a little bit of a gap in between, your parents have had enough parenting experience that they aren’t newbs anymore, and they’ve had enough of a break between babies/toddlers (and maybe they know you are the last) that they really relish and have fun with the newborn stage. I’m not trying to promote having a gap or whatever, and of course everyone is different and what may work well for some, won’t work for others, but even in my own family I see a difference the way I parented my first kids and the way I parented my later kids and the relationships of the older kids with the younger kids. And having a gap before the last, even my small gap of 4 years, ended up being really nice and having the older kids being older is really nice.

Anyways, this mama is one of the coolest mamas I know. She loves shoes, and is super creative with them. Her shoes for her session were darling, although I’m not showcasing them very well 😉 Next year, I will plan much better for a location that will be more conducive for heels. Her choice of baby clothes so fun as well. I’m only slightly disappointed that Baby Brother didn’t wear his Nirvana shirt… Coolest Mama = Coolest Baby Ever.
