Matt, Alicia & Delilah

I met Matt and Alicia for the first time two Sundays ago and immediately felt like I had known them for a long time. They are both so welcoming and friendly and conversation was easy. Perhaps the coolest thing I learned about them during our shoot was that they first met each other in the fourth grade! They were friends through school, started dating (if I remember right) their senior year of high school, and were married a few years ago in a small ceremony. They began to expand their family soon after by adopting Delilah from the local SPCA. (She is really the sweetest, happiest girl! and so pretty!) We had a fun, early morning walk around Matt and Alicia’s city and I was able to catch some really genuine moments between these two; they are simply very easy with each other.

Sidenote: I would LOVE to see pictures of these two in fourth grade together!!

Matt and Alicia- you guys are the best! Thanks so much for a great morning, and congratulations on your NEW! home!!



Dean & Nekol are another family I met 6 years ago (!) when Amara and my son, Grant, started preschool together. Amara held her own for quite a while as the only girl in a class of 5 boys! Different elementary schools mean we don’t see each other much anymore, but it was so awesome to hang out for a little bit and get family pictures! I was so sad to hear that they recently said goodbye to their first boxer baby, Bailey. But I was able to meet their new puppy, Brooks. Brooks is a gorgeous boy, full of puppy playfulness and bark. Amara woke up on this morning not feeling very well, but you can’t tell at all by looking at her pictures! She loves cheerleading and was even willing to show me a few moves!

Love you guys!!

My Little Birdy is not really my bird. She belongs to one of my dearest friends, Heather. But her girls call me Aunt Danie and my boys call her Ms. Aunt Heddar and that makes her partly my Birdy.

Birdy is Taylor’s nickname, but Bird-zilla is what she is most often called. She shares a middle name with her Aunt Nicole. She loves orange juice, her big sister and her big dog brother, Harley. She climbs on whatever needs climbing and appears to be a natural little athlete. Yet, she adores her princess tutu (made by yours truly. so honored!) and her pretty necklaces. I still can’t believe she stayed still long enough for me to get this many pictures.

I really love this girl.

Little Girl Skipping
Richard Armour

I say, and may be thought absurd,
A little girl is partly bird.

You say, she has no wing or feather?

I say, behold the dancing leather
Of shoes upon her skipping feet.
How seldom sole and sidewalk meet.

You say, she is earthly bound,
Unable to get off the ground?

I only said – recall the word –
A little girl is
partly bird.

And if she cannot soar the skies,
She has the urge and tries and tries.
