Dear Sweet Greyson

My Sweet Greyson, 
 
Joy. You are pure joy. You are one of the happiest little beings I have ever seen and being around you just makes my heart want to burst. Oh how I love you my sweet boy. Nana says that after she spends time with you she feels all filled up. She says its hard to explain, but I know what she means. Your happiness and smile do wonders for the soul. The excitement and love you have for the little things in life are contagious and leave people feeling happier. You are joy. 
 
Love you! 
 
Mommy 
 
PS Stop growing up so fast! :)

Unplugging

Sometimes you just have to unplug, unwind, and go to the beach. You have to take in the sunshine, watch the waves, and count the kites dancing in the sky. Walk along the shoreline. Have no agenda... or any idea what time it is. Pour a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Take naps. Everyone needs time to just relax and recharge. One of the best things for my soul is sand between my toes and quality time with my little family. 
 
Sometime you just have to unplug. And that's just want we did.

Memory Making Moments

As a photographer, it's my honor and joy to document moments. For amazing moments are what make the memories that will last for a lifetime. I have always said, those big moments like a first kiss on a wedding day or the announcement of the new Mr and Mrs at the reception are so important to document. But for me, my favorite are those small in between moments. The candid ones that may go unnoticed but once seen and captured, their beauty is remembered and truly appreciated. These sweet moments in time go as quickly as they come and documenting them so that they are never forgotten is what I love. My desire is to always see what others may miss, photographing the moment before it passes so the feelings and emotions can always be held near and dear. 
 
One of my favorite sweet moments from this past weekend's wedding!

In Between Moments

Whenever people ask me what my favorite part about being a mom is, I honestly can't pick just one thing... watching him grow, hearing him laugh, seeing the world through his eyes... But I do know one thing, it just keeps getting better and better. As Greyson is getting older, his cute little personality is melting hearts, especially mine. He is becoming a little boy right before my very eyes and sometimes I just wish time would slowwww dowwwwn.  
 
I never want to forget the everyday small moments that are the highlight of each day. Bath time, snuggles, blowing bubbles, reading stories before bed, petting Remington, playing Peekaboo... Even though these moments are candid and not "perfect" with spit up on his shirt and my hair not brushed, I always want to remember these raw moments. Because this is our real life. And to me its beautiful just the way it is. So I told Chris I want to remember to photograph as many of these small moments as possible. To not just photograph the birthdays, holidays, and milestones, when Greyson is in a clean outfit and when I'm showered and out of my PJs with makeup on. I want to remember to photograph the random Wednesday mornings right when he wakes up smiling ear to ear. The Friday evenings when we read him stories and tickle him just to hear his sweet laughter. Because these small in between real moments are my favorite.

Play. Nap. Repeat.

My dear Remington... he is the sweetest. I am pretty sure he thinks Greyson is his and I am totally okay with that. He keeps his eye on Greyson all day and takes his job very seriously. He follows me from room to room with Greyson as the baby eats, naps, and plays. Being an older brother is an exhausting job, but somebody has to do it! :) And oh how I love watching them play together. Thats right, play together. When did Greyson get old enough to PLAY!? He reaches out for Remington whenever they sit together and Remington licks Greyson's toes whenever he gets the chance. Then there are waves of giggling and smiles. It's like an adorable Hallmark card that has come to life! 
 
Oh how I just adore these two. With Remington sleeping on a pile of laundry fresh out of the dryer and Greyson taking a nap next to me, I am so grateful for the small beautiful moments that fill my days.
