Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

Isaiah is ONE!

Today is Isaiah's first birthday.
One year ago I was at Deaconess Hospital, with a newborn baby, a loving husband, and a more complete family. I'd have to say that having a baby makes life a bit 'crazy', and in the beginning I honestly couldn't understand why everyone was so happy for us.. but I get it now. Over the year this one little person has so effectively made me love like I've never loved before. I am so happy each time I get to watch him conquer a new skill, or discover something in his innocent way, or just feel his sweet hugs and kisses. Where he is now is such a dramatic difference from a year ago (as seen in my last post), it just makes the year so amazing. We threw Isaiah a fun birthday party yesterday, I'll be sure to share pics when I get them. We had a wonderful day together today as a family with some time at church, baptisms (Isaiah's uncle Matt got baptized today, congrats!), lifestock, the park, and a family nap :c) I don't feel like I've been too emotional about my baby turning one, but I also can't bear to take down the birthday banner and group of pictures that I put up for the party...
This is Isaiah's one year session shot by our friend, Mellisa Green 

Handsome manIMG_4357

I think this might be mid sneezeimg_4411

And just like any other one year old I try to shoot.. Isaiah wouldn't cooperate with our cute ideas
But it didn't stop me from having fun!
so we improvised

Next we changed locations and outfits

I just love when Isaiah squats down like this, it just looks so kid-like :c)IMG_4537

Thanks Mellisa for capturing such a special time!

And as if my son's birthday isn't enough to celebrate, this post actually makes my 500th post, Woo hoo!

Tried to pick a few as my favorites and then realized that I'd basically picked every one. These are great and y'all are all lovely and a half. Happy birthday, Isaiah!
