5 Moments- July 2018

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.Chunky Babies

Two questions for you:  1. Does it get much better than chunky babies in a baby pool splashing wildly? 2. How in the heck have you all been staying cool this summer? I generally try not to complain about the heat in the summer or the cold in the winter but holy cow this summer has been no joke. So we’ve spent a lot of time, attempting to cool ourselves down. Which I really can’t complain about because it’s given me views like this… 😍

2. Me and My Boy

I finally got a moment to be on the other side of the camera and used every second to enjoy some time with my boy. (Side note- props to my hubs for capturing a few shots and every one of them was in focus!)

3. The Sunflower Days of Summer

I wish these flowers lasted all summer long. Their beauty is breathtaking and their size is really amazing but holy BEES. Even though I know that bees like flowers and these fields are full of flowers, I hadn’t put 2 and 2 together. So when we arrived at the fields, I was taken back and a bit terrified of the number of bees buzzing around. While I was frozen by fear at times of maximum-buzzing, this little adventurer was busy zigging and zagging through the rows, running up and down without a fear or care in the world. To her, the field was a maze and she acted as though nothing else, and no one else, was around. I loved watching her explore and it inspired me to a be little less scared.

4. The Hammock

A new addition to the neighbors yard and a great place to hang with your buds.

5. Adventures in CO

A weeklong vacation in Colorado allowed for lots of exploration time around the mountains. This girl’s fearlessness (see sunflowers above) was non-stop when climbing, hiking, and zip-lining. She’s a natural born leader and I was happy to follow closely behind as she lead the way through each adventure.

Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a St. Louis Family and Lifestyle Photographer and this is my blog!  

As a busy mother of 2, I know how quickly time can slip through your fingers. Being able to take the most simple and precious moments in my daughters’ lives and turn them into art that our family can admire forever has been a wonderful experience. The best part about it? I can do the same for you.
