5 Moments – August 2017

Each month, I look back in reflection on my favorite moments, captures or days. This, in a nutshell, is what I love about photography; documenting the little things. It also provides a glimpse into the past to provoke emotions, share memories and tell stories.

1.This Moment, With This Family

I love when families come back with more babies so I can tell their story even further. I will not dwell on the details of it but they opened their home to a small foster babe and we were able to capture some amazing memories during their time together. This shot was one of my favorites.

2. Vacation

It took us until the end of summer but we finally went on a family vacation. After finding the perfect school for our littles, it hit us that the summer was closing in on us, and quickly. We threw some plans together, loaded up the family car and headed west to Colorado for a week. It was marvelous and exactly what we all needed to end the summer on a high note.

3. The Eclipse!

I’m sure we have all heard enough about the eclipse but part of me doesn’t want to stop talking about it. I was not very interested in it before it happened. Sure, I thought it was going to be cool but I wasn’t planning on going out of my way to find a great spot to view it . Boy, was I wrong. I had completely underestimated the beauty and experience of this amazing event. I was able to catch a few fun photos after picking my jaw up off the floor.

4. A Taste of Fall Weather

In St. Louis, we had a few glorious days of cool mornings that we soaked in right before those August days of summer hit. We pulled out the robes, poured some hot cocoa (coffee for mom and dad) and enjoyed the cool breeze.

5. We’re Growing Our Family

In case you missed it via social media, we are happy to announce that we are having a baby this winter! Everyone in the family is overjoyed and waiting patiently for the little one to make it’s appearance.

As a busy mother of 2, I know how quickly time can slip through your fingers.
