and then we jumped in front of the camera

yesterday, i had an amazingly fun photo shoot with my cousin, lauren, and her little boy, henry. i'm already drooling over the images and can't wait to finish editing them and show you all!

at the very end of our shoot, hero and i decided to jump in front of the camera and had my sister, sarah, snap a few quick pics of us together. this one is my absolute favorite! her face!! i seriously can't believe she's going to be 1 year old next week.

after yesterday's shoot, i decided i really, really love photographing mommas and their babies. it was so fun to give a well-deserving mom a chance to just sit and play with her baby while the moment was carefully captured and documented for her to have and keep for always.

evans siblings photo shoot


before you get too annoyed, i'm working on setting a separate blog just for posting pics of my photo shoots as i continue to explore this new-found hobby and extension of our film business- photography.

i know there's a stigma of being just another "mom with a camera" but whatever. i love when i feel like i have something that i'm actively working on, and striving to learn more about. and that's what photography has given me. not only is it a creative outlet, but it's a chance for me to try to cultivate something, create work for myself, and interact with people outside of my little sphere at home with hero. plus, i'm really enjoying it!

hope you all had a great memorial day weekend!

emma's senior portrait photo shoot

friday night, i had the fun opportunity to do a little senior portrait photo session. I LOVED IT. it was a blast getting to play photographer for the weekend! and can you even believe how beautiful emma is!? unreal.

seriously every shot of her was stunning but these few are some of my absolute faves.

if you're looking for an inexpensive photographer, shoot me an email! i'd love to get more practice and who knows- maybe in the future, we can even add a little photography to our film business :)

i got their midnight dip swimsuit in charcoal for our trip to LA and can't tell you how much i love it. before this suit, i've never ever felt comfortable enough to wear a swimsuit without some kind of board shorts to cover my hips and thighs. and never in my wildest dreams would i have ever guessed that i'd post actual pictures of myself in a swimsuit sans board shorts on my blog! but thanks to albion fit, i can finally ditch the faded, 7 year-old roxy shorts and not even feel bad about it! yes!
