Eli // One Year Old

Categories Photography, Children/Babies

When I was pregnant with Finn, there was another soon-to-be momma at our church who was due to have her first child (a little boy) about a month before me. We would often share knowing looks and frequent check-ins with one another on Sunday mornings. I like to think it was our way of showing solidarity, a little “isn’t this wonderful?” mixed with a little “you can do this!” Now that we both have little boys about the same age we continue to experience shared mom things. When she asked if I would photograph Eli for his one-year photos last spring, I was ecstatic! He’s such an adorable little boy, quick and happy.

He was a seriously great model! I had a ton of fun taking these pictures and I’m excited to share them with you today.

I'm the daughter to a King, wife to a man who makes me laugh, and mother to two boys who add joy and fullness to my life. I am a dreamer, a philosopher, an artist, and lover of things that stir my soul. I spend most of my days at home with my boys, Miles and Finn. We make messes (and occasionally clean them up), we giggle, we run and hide from dinosaurs and monsters and we read lots of books together. In my "free" time I feed my craving for art with various creative pursuits and indulge in tasty treats, coffee, and the occasional, guilt-laden Red Bull to feed my other addictions.

When it comes to my passions, I have many. God, Love, Family, Travel, Music, Design, Coffee... but somewhere near the top of the list you'll find photography. From the moment I turned my camera lens towards a sunset for the first time, I felt an intense desire to somehow steal away the beauty of that moment and keep it forever. Now I walk around thirsty to soak up the beautiful moments around me, add a spark of something from deep inside my soul, then spill it back out to the world.
