3.5 Years Old {RDP – June 2016}

blog10

I’ve had to do some major overhauling on my blog this morning because I ran out of storage space. So, if you’ve been a long time reader or if you go searching through the archives, you may notice that many blog posts from the early years are now gone. I have only kept a select few before 2015. I was unable to share these lovely photos of our daughter because I couldn’t get them uploaded (until now)😉 So moving forward, here are a few of my favorites from a little time spent with my sweetie pie down on my Mom’s land.

I really wanted to get out there and snap some shots before all of the wild phlox died. These are my favorite early summer flower… they smell so amazing and are equally pretty.

There was also some sword fighting involved on this day. Of course, it was Capt. Hook she was fighting as he had captured Tinker Bell!

And down into the creek we went, or the “waterfalls” as she calls it.

Even Octane had a cool off (and she never gets in the water)!

And this is the sunset we were able to witness… truly beautiful.

My Girl {June 2016}

blog1

This little gal is growing up so quickly. Three really is a great age and I wish there was a way to bottle it all up and save it for later. So full of life, love, imagination, magic… These photographs are images straight out of my dreams.

She’s not afraid of a thunderstorm. Even though it threatened to rain on our parade, she kept dancing away.

Always been best buds. Octane and Rhilyn.

What beauty! My husband and I dream of living on this road someday. But for now, frequent trips to family-owned land will do.

blog5

Out of all of our dogs, she loves to run the most. Octane, the old girl of the pack. She’ll be 9 on Labor Day this year!

Madelynn Jane {3 months}

blog7

In an effort to get caught up on some blogging, I’m starting off by sharing a session I did quite some time ago. My niece MJ (as I lovingly call her) is now 8 months old but back in March we did a mini session of her for her 3 month portraits.

She has always been such a happy little thing. Apart from her newborn photos she’s been so easy to photograph. Look at this adorable thing!

blog5

Who, me?

blog4

Yup. You, MJ!
Rhilyn requested to style one of her pictures, so here it is. She did a fab job wouldn’t you say?
