I love music as much as I love photography. In fact, music was a huge part in my life before the photography bug bit me. When I was a kid I dreamed of being on Broadway in New York. I even went to school to be a high school theater teacher when I decided New York was too far away.My life has ended up different than I imagined, but I have no regrets. I still sing for our Church’s worship team once a month. I also sing really loud in my car. My family even tells me to “keep it quiet” once in awhile.

Just please don’t ask to see those videos of me acting… it’s a scary sight.

Today’s pick is “One Step at a Time” by Jordin Sparks

You can listen here

Lyrics:

Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you’ve always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can’t touch

You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you’re gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face and the door keeps slamming
Now you’re feeling more and more frustrated
And you’re getting all kind of impatient waiting
We live and we learn to take

One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen when it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

You believe and you doubt
You’re confused, you got it all figured out
Everything that you always wished for
Could be yours, should be yours, would be yours
If they only knew

You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you’re gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face and the door keeps slamming
Now you’re feeling more and more frustrated
And you’re getting all kind of impatient waiting
We live and we learn to take

One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen when it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

When you can’t wait any longer
But there’s no end in sight
It’s the faith that makes you stronger
The only way we get there
Is one step at a time

Take one step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen when it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen when it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

Baby “G” is one already!!

It seems like yesterday I was doing his newborn photos. He came over for his “smash the cake” session and cracked us up with his anger towards the cake. He was totally fine eating the cake, but at first he didn’t know what to think. The last one on the storyboard is my absolute favorite.

I think it was a very successful cake smashing session. Next week baby G and I are going to do his big boy outdoor photos.

I hope you enjoy the preview!

My dad says this about kids quoting my very wise grandmother.

I’ve found this to be true in my life. No matter how many kids I’ve had during different stages, it was usually one more than I felt I could handle. Now with three kids, I often feel like I need ‘just one more hand’ to get them all wrangled together. Having three kids and two hands always proves to be an interesting experience when grocery shopping (or doing anything that requires running around town). The baby is usually on my hip, Tinker holds onto my pocket and Little Miss usually knows she needs to keep close. I don’t worry about her too much. According to her she’s practically grown up anyway.

Course as crazy as I feel with my kiddos at times, I still love kids. I think I’d have a dozen more if it weren’t for the whole financial/space issue. Though when I see moms with multiple kids, I wonder how on earth they manage. I know my friends with only one or two wonder how I do it.

I just tie a rope, hold on, and enjoy the ride.

Here’s a few from last week of Little Miss M. I had a quick mini-session with her. You can see her sister a few posts below (little miss “C”). Thanks for being such an adorable model. I hope you enjoy your photos!

The beautiful Miss L.

I had the pleasure of photographing and attending her third birthday party this last Friday. She’s an absolute doll. I got this face right before the cake was cut. I love the excitement of birthdays. So much sugar and so much fun.

Happy Birthday!
