Amid the sleeplessness and teething, amid the to do lists, errands, packing and wrapping, there is much to celebrate and much to be grateful for this Christmas season. I’m ready to shake off the former and embrace the latter, as we begin new traditions as a little family and introduce Zaya to the tried and true traditions we’ve carried through the years. So here’s to finding joy in the chaos, warmth in togetherness, and a New Year bright with potential.

Merry Christmas!


Last week I blogged my cousin’s super sweet baby girl, and today I’m blogging her sister’s second baby boy! Steve and Courtney and Koah welcomed Davis Chance into their hearts and homes in October (the same day as my sister’s wedding! It’s been an eventful year for my family). I had the fun privilege of photographing this new family of four on a gorgeous Fall day not long ago. Everyone is pretty smitten with the new addition…particularly big brother Koah…


Sweet little Sadie Joy was born to my cousin and bestie last month. She was prayed for and hoped for and is loved so very much by so many. But especially her first time parents, Megs and Trevor. Megs and I grew up together and to now have babies who will grow up together is a pretty special thing. Four of us cousins had little ones this year, this beauty being the only girl, so you can imagine how doted upon she is…and how fun it is to have a baby girl in the family to shop for!

Sadie Joy, we love you so!
