Tea for Two!

Peyton Elizabeth is so excited to share that this September she is going to be a Big Sister! Finally, someone to have tea parties with all the time!


Just look at this sweet smile. When I ask her where’s the baby she is already pointing to my belly and beaming with joy. I am so excited to see what a great big sister she is going to turn into.


We don’t find out if it is a boy or girl until later in the month. I am so excited I can hardly sit still.


And now we have time for some out takes. It has been extremely windy here for the last few weeks. I finally was fed up with waiting and decided to try my best at making this photo happen. You can see the cherry blossoms swirling around like a snow storm.


The two blue balloons were the first to go- shortly after the below photo the pink ones popped as well. Peyton just kept yelling “oh no! my balloons!!!” It was quite precious.



Valentines Day Photo Shoot

For my birthday in November, my husband and mom went in together to get me the best gift ever: a DSLR. I have been wanting one for at least 5 years. Since November I have been trying to slowly take some time to learn how to take better pictures. I am not yet shooting in manual but I have learned a few things. I have also decided that themed photoshoots are my new favorites. Here are some pictures from a little Valentine Mini Session with my sweetie.

I could just squeeze her cheeks all day long. DSC_0845 - Version 2 DSC_0854 - Version 2 DSC_0859 - Version 2I love this small quilt. My mom made it for me when I was little.  So happy I get to use it for P now. DSC_0876 - Version 2I saw this rug on a Pinterest photo and set out to get it.

All my props were from Target. They really had a fabulous selection this year.

Are you doing a Valentines shoot with your little one? If so post a link so I can ooh and ahh over them. Holidays really are so much more fun with kids.
