second star {personal}

Introducing our beautiful son, Felix August Alderaan! He was born in our home at 7:23pm on March 3, 2016 - weighing 9 lbs 10 oz, 21 inches long. Djuna is a wonderful big sister and we are all doing really well - although quiiiiite tired, as you can imagine.

i've always heard that you take less photos of the second baby and i have definitely found that to be true. so much less time to lay around and stare at Felix the way i did with Djuna... he spends a lot of time wrap-napping while i chase after his sister and the dogs and attempt to keep us fed and clothed. took me 3 weeks to get to posting this and i haven't even written out his birth story yet but look forward to sharing that soon on my tumblr

i am catching up on sharing all of my work from last season, and looking ahead to an amazing 2016 season with my wonderful clients. this summer booked up fast and it's going to be a good one. cheers!!

 

fair thee well

i will be out of the office Thursday 7/9 through Sunday 7/12 while my family and i are at the Oregon Country Fair - i will be unplugged, following my daughter around Chela Mela and eating delicious fair food, watching fire dancers, and sleeping outside for several glorious days.

i'm a little excited. i look forward to this every year!

i won't have access to email, but i will get back to you on Monday if you reach out! thanks!! have a beautiful weekend!!

love at first sight {personal}

hello friends! just wanted to make a quick personal post to introduce you to someone new and very special - our daughter Djuna Beatrix. she was born in our home on April 17, 2014 at 2:27pm, weighing 8 lbs 13 oz, 20.5 inches long. we are both healthy and so happy!

these first precious days with her have been so amazing and filled with love and support from our family and friends.

i am resting for a couple weeks but already thinking of this upcoming wedding season with excitement. check back for some of my 2014 couples' engagement sessions soon!

it goes without saying that there will be lots of photographs of this child [but they will mostly be on my tumblr]. here is one to start. much love!

djuna, day 6
