What you don’t see is…
Yep… it’s December. Enjoy :)
I wish you could have heard her laugh - it was the BEST!
A few weeks ago, I took the boys to the beach... by myself with the goal of taking pictures of Rhett with a sailboat. We loaded everything up and Rhett was happy as a clam in the wagon. I let Landon run around and play for a minute before getting Rhett ready. He freaked out the second his toes hit the sand. There was no way I was leaving the beach empty handed though. With lots of cuddles and some help from big brother, I was able to get my creativity fix.
I think this was my fourth session with this family. When we first started working together, we had to prop this little guy in a basket because he couldn't even sit yet. I'm pretty sure I hit my step count for the day after his session. We spent the morning running around Hampton Park looking at ducks, climbing light posts and sitting in oak trees. I love this family so much and it's been so fun to watch these kids grow up!
Want to know something really funny and SO #momlife? I wrote this blog post June 2016 and never published it. My baby is all grown and the field is full of houses, but there is no better time than the present to hit publish! Goodness gracious, y'all!
This session was a combination of two ideas. Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned a field? This field is actually just a few cleared lots in the back of our neighborhood. Every day when I drove past it I just knew it was perfect for pictures. For weeks, I tried to take Landon out there but something always seemed to come up - a thunderstorm, a melt down...
At the same time, I had also wanted to take pictures of Landon eating ice cream or a popsicle. I mean, is there anything cuter (or more terrifying) than watching a toddler eat a treat? The only thing I couldn't figure out was how do I keep a popsicle cold in the crazy South Carolina heat?
BINGO! I'll take Landon out to the field!
And I kid you not. TWO days later they poured foundations, so my field is no more.
