I am so excited to share a collaboration with Danielle Thompson!
She is a phenomenally creative force in the craft industry,
creating her vintage Kitchy digital kits for scrapbooking & crafting.
I knew when she contacted me a few months ago that I wanted to capture
her signature colorful style in some special way.
We put our heads together and decided on a “Moonrise Kingdom” movie theme.
Her plan was to give the photos as a birthday gift to her husband, who is a big Wes Anderson fan.
The movie is set back in the 60′s in a quirky,
understated style about an adventure between two runaways.
It has about as much vintage feel as my smitten heart can handle.
Danielle put so much thought and care into all the details of the session.
Her boys were so adorable with their boy scout gear!
Each of the patches on their shirts carries a special meaning.
Their cooperation made the session effortless & fun. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Sitting at my desk editing this sunny session on a dreary day,
and it’s cheering me up! :-)
We visited family in Oklahoma for a week this summer.
I throughly enjoyed myself watching our kids play together,
eating my cousin’s scrumptious cooking,
sewing, shopping, taking pictures around their mini farm. One evening we got out and took their family pictures.
Aren’t they adorable? mmmm…. I love them!
It makes me happy to capture a family that is so near and dear to me.
I’m thankful that our children have the opportunity to grow up together.. just as we did.
Soo many happy memories! ..and many more in the making. :)
Life is full of beautiful moments to capture.
When Madelyn told me her favorite color was red,
I thought of the vintage dress in the corner of my closet just waiting for its time to shine.
She loved it and it all came together so beautifully!
Best wishes Madelyn!
I’m sharing Madelyne’s senior session in two parts.
We shot these in early spring and more a few months later when everything bloomed.
Madelyne has big dreams as she heads off to college.
She aspires to be a fashion designer.
I think she is a natural and I hope that her dreams come true!
Mother’s Day is this weekend, and my heart is full. :)
I truly LOVE my role as a mother more with each passing year.
Sometimes I wonder how I could have been so lucky?
These children of mine are so sweet & deeply caring, it makes my heart ache sometimes.
It’s important to me that they grow up understanding what true love is.
I want them to know how much I love them, but also how much more deeply God loves them.
Understanding this unconditional love is the best example we have to love others.
I hope you have a special Mother’s day!
I talked husband into manning the camera for this fun session with Autumn & I one afternoon.
I will say, he did a fine job.. so many keepers! :) I love a retro laundromat.
(wish I would have tucked my oldest in here too.. what was I thinking?)
