the park | bismarck, nd child and family photographer

Earlier this spring, daddy built the kids “the park,” as titled by Rory.  They have had an absolute blast playing out there, and it is perfect for this little boy.  Just like a normal almost two year old boy, he adores playing outside, and cries anytime he has to come in.  All you have to do is say “slide?” and he runs as fast as he can to the backyard to play.  I have been wanting to get some photos of him out there, but of course, we have no trees, which meansView full post »

happy easter! | bismarck, nd family photographer

Well, it is becoming a tradition for me to blog photos from our egg dying every year.  I always love looking back on photos of the kids doing something annually.  It is just fun to see how much has changed in only a year.  This was Cohen’s first year dying eggs, so to say the process has changed this year is an understatment!  They both took it very seriously, and were sad when all the eggs were colored. So to begin, here are the photos from 2009, 2010, and 2011… I hopeView full post »

peeee doh | bismarck, nd photographer

Today, I was downloading some images from a recent session, and I started to feel bad looking through all of my cards because they were full of images of my kids from the last two months.  Just sitting there, not really forgotten, but definitely neglected.  I had to document these on my blog, though, because they show the result of what is a big milestone for every little boy…the first busted open head wound!  You know, I am actually surprised it has taken this long.  Cohen is nothingView full post »

valentine time! | bismarck, nd child photographer

I always have fun thinking up ideas for Valentine cards for the kids.  This year, I saw so many cute ideas online, but I had the idea for Cohen’s in my head for awhile.  I decided to use thus image I got of him a couple weeks ago because I figured it went well with the common, cheesy Valentine line. These are Oreo dipper things with scrapbooking paper wrapped around them. Of course, Rory Jean wanted nothing to do with my ideas.  So, we ended up going to Target and I just let her pick outView full post »

cohen at 18 months | bismarck natural light photographer

Finally, some new photos of the sweetest little man ever.  This kid, I have to admit, has me wrapped around his cute little finger.  I don’t know what it is.  I mean, I remember thinking Rory was the most adorable baby, too, but I cannot get over him.  Maybe it is a thing baby boys have on their mamas?  In any event, he is extremely lucky I feel this way because his cuteness cancels out his naughtiness.  Oh man can he throw a tantrum!  And test my patience to the last thread, especiallyView full post »

dusting off the canon | bismarck, nd children’s photography

I think I have been blogging for three-ish years now, and this happens every year.  I finish up the crazy fall photography season, and just put the camera away for awhile so I can focus on my family again.  There is so much to do and enjoy during the holidays, it is easy to do.  In fact, this year at Christmas, I didn’t take one photo of my kids.  At the time, I thought it was a great idea to just sit back and enjoy watching them, but now that it has come and gone, I am a bit sad aboutView full post »

papa’s pumpkin patch 2010 | bismarck, nd

A couple weeks ago, KaCee and Emma joined us at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch.  It was our one and only trip this year, and we always have so much fun out there.  We had so many beautiful fall days, and this was no exception.  It seemed they were a little short on pumpkins, but that only meant it was easier for Cohen to run wild!  Whichever direction we all went, he literally walked the opposite direction.  LOL!  And Emma was just her usually smiley self.  Love that girl!  Rory’s favoriteView full post »

first day of pre-k!

Today was an exciting day!  Rory started pre-kindergarten.  We were thinking that she wouldn’t be able to go to preschool this year just because of the feasibility of me getting her picked up, dropped off, taken to daycare, all of that.  The timing wasn’t working with my work schedule, and I was a little bit disappointed.  But last week, there was a last minute cancellation at the one school that would work for us, and we got the spot!  Last night, she had picked out her outfit andView full post »

life changes

Just a few snapshots of what’s going on in the life of this one year old! A new big boy carseat.  I’d like to report that he loves it, but alas, not much has changed.  He still hates being strapped in 99% of the time.  I’m not sure what I did to deserve the 20 minutes of quiet time when he passed out back there the first time he rode in it.  And I’m not convinced it will ever happen again. And today, his first hair cut!  It was long over due, but I refused to get itView full post »
