Meet Sydney.

She is our newest addition to the family. We debated on having a fourth child, but decided that a puppy is just perfect for our family. My kids’ first names start with the letters K.I.D (in that order) and I always said I’d have an “S” if we had a fourth baby, so hence the name Sydney. Well, that and she’s a toy Australian Shepherd, so it was just perfect.

She is nine and a half weeks old today. We’re in the potty training/chewing phase, but we love every minute of it (well, almost every minute of it. LOL).

In other news: My hubby has officially quit his day job and is going to school full time starting in two weeks. Our family will have a college student, a 4th grader, a Kindergartner, and a preschooler. It’s gonna be crazy around here for the next few years but we’re super excited for the transition. We’ve planned on this for many years and it’s finally all come into place. I will be resuming work as usual. I’ll probably take on a bit more sessions here and there but business will still be very much the same. I’ve been so incredibly blessed to be as busy as I am. There are many many photographers out there and I’m so grateful when I am chosen to be the photographer for my client’s important milestones.

I am grateful and blessed beyond words.

Without further ado, here’s the new baby….

Ten years ago today I married my best friend. I cannot believe how much we’ve been through and how much more I love him than I did the day we were married.

(I know, it’s gag me with a spoon romantic, but please bear with me…)

I love you Derrick Lemmons. Thank you for everything you do. I hope to spend sixty more wonderful years with you.

A picture of a picture from our wedding day. I have this as a canvas on my wall and it makes me smile huge.

(and wish I was that skinny again.  😉 )

The three little people that have my heart.

I haven’t shown much of them on my site lately. Here’s some pics I took a few days ago in the backyard. Unplanned, spur of the moment “session” with my babies. K will be 9 next month, Tinker is 5 and little D is 3.5.

They are why I do what I do.

but my niece is RIDICULOUSLY adorable.

okay, you all know how emotional I get sometimes, but holy moly, my youngest is THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where did the time go???????

We did a session last week and I got so many that are just exactly his personality. LOVE that kid!!!!

“you ruined my life.”

this is exactly him.  a total “cheese ball”

he’s constantly making this face to get us to laugh!!!
