Ryder & Jackson – 10 Month Portraits

These two honestly get more adorable every single day and it’s getting more and more difficult to narrow down the photos from their sessions!

Their 10 month session was done in two stages. Ryder was up first while his brother was having a nap!

Check out this lil’ man’s smile! It melts my heart. You can’t see it here – but he’s got his first tooth hiding in there!

Both of the boys are loving their new talent of standing – and Jackson especially loves sitting…

Lil’ J tells the most hilarious jokes. He even finds his own jokes pretty funny.

And this is officially my longest post ever… these kids need to stop being so darn cute. (I’m kidding of course!) They do need to stop growing up so quickly though! I have this funny feeling that there won’t be many more posts before they are running around in these sessions. Which means these sessions might suddenly become a little bit harder with them running around.

The face Ryder is making in the second row of this series is one of his favorites.

Easter Blessings

Happy Easter everyone! I hope that everyone has enjoyed this beautiful weekend as much as I have. The sun is finally shining and it’s starting to really feel like spring might be here to stay (fingers crossed anyways!) There really seems to be that ‘springy happy’ feeling floating around.

This year my mom and dad hosted our big family Easter dinner at their place so I’ve spent a relaxing weekend with family. We went to the Easter Sunday service yesterday and during the service my mom reminded me of a photo I captured a few years ago. I really just wanted to come home and share this image with everyone.

Just to finish off – some lyrics from one of my long time favorite hymns. Perfect for Easter. 🙂

Now You are exalted to the highest place
King of the heavens, where one day I’ll bow
But for now I marvel at Your saving grace
And I’m full of praise once again
I’m full of praise once again
And once again I look upon the cross where You died
I’m humbled by Your mercy and I’m broken inside
Once again I thank You
Once again I lay down my life
Thank You for the cross, my friend

Truman – Wainwright Easter Bunny Sessions

This handom man was a blast to have in the studio. His smile and amazing personality shone through. He had so much fun he didn’t even want to leave afterwards. It melted my heart when he gave me a huge hug goodbye.

Miss Kaycee – Wainwright Newborns

I had the pleasure of hanging out with this sweet little girl when she was 5 days new. She was so cuddly and cozy – I think she only opened her eyes to check things out once or twice.
