{out came the sun}

I was really excited when I woke up yesterday morning and saw the SUN.

I typically always welcome the rain, unless it messes up some fun outdoor activity. But I admit after the week long rain storm and some circumstances in my life things were starting to get the best of me. I woke up on Monday morning and saw blue skies. I was thrilled. Not long after that I found out that some of the most encouraging people in my life, some of my family, were heading to the beach. I didn't wait five minutes before I started packing beach bags. I finished my coffee in the quiet and woke my crew.

The quietness and relaxation of the beach with my family is just what I needed.

My girls are just like their Mama... they LOVE the beach. Their Daddy on the other hand could do without but he loves to make his girls happy and we love him for it! Delaney loves to get a bucket full of shells and entertain herself for hours by washing them off and sorting through them. Its obvious that Avery just loves the freedom and space to run. She also loves the waves hitting her feet.

There is nothing that makes me smile more than a photo like this of my sweet babies. I can still hear them laughing.


  1. Precious!! Praise the Lord for sunshine!!!!!!!! :)

  2. Sweet, sweet pictures! Your girls are too cute on the beach. Glad you had some much-needed family time. I hope this week is better for you! If not, call on your Sunday School Sister! Ha (:

  3. :) Love these...especially the last one...it has been a horrible week in more than a couple of ways. Is that the suit I got Ave like 2 yrs ago?

  4. The more I thought about it....I think that I was just with you when you bought it...unless I am crazy and I did get it for her?? :) Oh and tell B-Rad awesome tat!

  5. Thanks, Carrie!! :)

    Linds-- I think I ended up buying it but you MADE me! :)


About Me

My photo
I am a photographer focused on infant, child, family, maternity, couples and senior photography. I shoot on location, at the location of your choice, in natural light.

I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember - anyone who knows me can tell you that. There is just something about it that makes me smile. After the birth of my first daugther, Delaney, my passion for photography ignited. 33 months later came her baby sister, Avery. I have had my camera in my hand every day since. There isn't a moment I want to miss... the tiny toes, the drool, the smiles, the simple things. My girls are my inspiration for everything. You will often find me in the background snapping those natural moments in life that I don't want to see people forget. Sometimes the best photographs are the ones that are unposed and candid. I love the feeling of capturing such sweet moments and will strive to bring your memories to life in a way that you love.
