This was from last year, it was a spur of the moment thing to bring my camera with us. Looking at these pictures now I am so glad I did. Like every other mom I take a gazillion pictures of my kids and very few pictures of myself and even fewer pictures of their dad. It’s going to have to be a new tradition, pictures of them for Father’s Day. And even though I can just pictures my daughter’s face at the thought of “more pictures?”, ha ha, she’ll appreciate it later.

Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome father’s out there!

My kiddo graduated from Kindergarten yesterday. So crazy, because in kinder they are still little, but first grade seems like big kid territory. She wore this same dress on her first day of school and when I compared her to herself 9 months before I couldn’t believe it. Official big girl first grader. I was planning on just taking a couple of pictures so I took her to this little mustard patch down the street from her school. But her being her, she starting running wild and I had to chase her. So it ended up being a full on photo shoot. The location and light were just too perfect. And this dead tree she just had to climb is awesome.

I drove by this meadow the other day and it had been completely mowed down. The wildflowers across the street didn’t make it through the last heat wave either. I’m glad I got to shoot here a couple of times but it also means spring is almost over and summer is near.

I love her! And I love working in the studio. I love me some natural light but I’m now split. No matter what the weather is like outside, no matter what time of day, you can shoot and the possibilities are endless.

This is from my recent trip with the Babiekins team to New York. We shot the sweetest little girl, Ryleigh, who drove from Pennsylvania and we walked all around the city in the Flatiron/Chelsea area. This was seriously the highlight of the trip. Ryleigh was so fun, we were going up and down each street and she was telling jokes and singing and laughing. And I took her to a spot where the Empire State building was right behind her and it hit me, I’m taking pictures in NY. Insane. I love that city, I fell in love. It really is as amazing as everyone says. I think about going back every day and I miss it. And this shoot sums up the trip perfectly it up perfectly, the buildings, the energy, the people.

I had the honor of shooting sweet little Cohen in the flowers for Babiekins Issue 12. Cohen won the contest to be on the cover and here she is-

The rest of the wild flowers for now. We had a mini heat wave last weekend and when I drove past this spot almost all of the purple flowers were gone. So sad, until next year I guess.

Can you tell I love wild flowers? A lot. I drive my kids crazy because I turn down side streets to look for them. When I saw this field I literally gasped and my daughter said, “what, what happened?! and rolled her eyes when I said “look at those ones!” I found the perfect spot and I never want it to go away. It was the perfect spot for the amazing Kayla. I love working with her. She’s so much fun, we were chasing lady bugs and stomping nettles. I have a lot more to share too, just you wait.

When we were at Petite Parade we interviewed the oh so stylish kids of celebrity Stylist June Ambrose. From the Babiekins blog:

For the Babiekins team, exploring the Big Apple meant red eye flights and a whirlwind visit. But when it comes to PetiteParade in NYC, Chance and Summer Ambrose (children of June Ambrose)  had a different perspective — and we just love it!

BABIEKINS: What was your favorite part of the fashion show?
CHANCE (11 years old): Ummmm…ALL of it!
BABIEKINS: And what was your favorite part of the show, Summer?
SUMMER (8 years old): I liked the Target dog!
BABIEKINS: What did you think about the Petite Parade fashion show?
CHANCE: I think it was amazing!
