TWP - Big News!

4 years ago, I started this business because God told me to. It has been His business this whole time. He has led it + directed it. I'm just... there.

But now, 4 years later, God has moved our family into a new direction. We are in the process of trying to adopt a girl. (YAY!!!)

I will still be doing photography but not nearly as much as before. Instead of doing 4 shoots a week, I am now only booking 1 shoot a week + I am going to be spending a LOT more time with my wonderful family. This decision to cut back on photography happened about a month ago + I have been booking less and less since then. So... I am STILL doing photography, but my first available opening is now in October.


But the GOOD NEWS IS...

My WONDERFUL Company Photographer, Jodi Baker, may be able to get you in much sooner. Her contact number is 910-215-5605.

Cooper + Houston @ the Pool

I LOVE summer time! The boys and I have been keeping track of how many days in a row we can go to the pool. So far, we have a 14 day streak going.

Here's Cooper showing us his INCREDIBLE surfing moves...





Houston ran up to me + decided to start dancing. I was laughing so hard I could barely shoot the camera!


We woke up to rain today, but if it clears up even just for a bit, we're hitting that pool! This could be Day 15!

Bailey, Connor, London + Liam

Dan is our Web Specialist here at TWP + he is AMAZING! One of my favorite things to do is to hang out with Dan + his family! They are SO MUCH fun! Dan + his FABULOUS wife Donna have 4 children.... Bailey (9), Connor (8 in 3 days!!!), London (5) + Liam (2). I have photographed their family several times now. The first time was before Liam was even born + way before I began blogging.

It has been such a joy to see their family grow + change over the last 4 years. Here are some of the photos from our shoot a few days ago...

Donna brought along bubbles, which is always fun...


Bailey is in gymnastics + is FANTASTIC at it!



The very first time I photographed their family, I brought along some apples for the kids, thinking that the apples may be good for some photos. Donna said that those apple shots have been her favorites, + so she brought along some fun green ones for the shoot.

I love, love, LOVE Connor's freckles!

And I LOVE London's glasses... SO CUTE!!!

And little Liam LOVES to play hockey + to punch daddy with his BIG gloves...


Liam + mommy...




When Donna + I talked about doing this shoot, she had said that she just wanted photos of the kids this time. But... since Dan + Donna were both there... we just HAD to get in a few Mommy + Daddy shots!


Dan, THANK YOU for ALL the wonderful web help you give me! You are AMAZING + you have such a delightful family!

The Ninja

Yesterday, Winston got all dressed up in his 'ninja' clothes, as he calls it. He wanted to go outside + show me all his ninja moves. Now, I realize that I am his momma, but I must say that these moves were pretty impressive!


Awe, the concentration...







The 'Crouching Tiger' ...


Great moves, Ninja!

Adeline

Remember Natalie's maternity shoot? (Click HERE to see those images.) Well, now little Adeline is nearly 8 months old and is just as cute as can be!



And Adeline smiles a LOT!

















Natalie, it is so fun seeing you be such a FABULOUS Mommy! Little Adeline is so blessed!
