The Taylor Family

Introducing the Taylor family! 
I had so much fun with them! Dakoda and her little brother, Sawyer are just over-the-top-cute!! And seriously sweet! Thier Mommy, Tiffany, is my 2nd cousin, but we don't see each other very often, so it was so nice to hang out with them for a while. Tiffany and Josh brought the kids over to my house and we enjoyed the woods, 
the fallen leaves and the golden light. 
So glad to finally share their session with you!

Victoria is ONE

Back in October I was able to do a session for my friends, the Kilby's. Little Victoria was the Birthday girl and it was fun as the family gathered around her to celebrate. I know you remember her from last year, when she came to my studio for a 5 month session...she was the cutest! Remember her hair? Go refresh your memory here

This time I went to see her at her home on the Kilby farm. You'll notice the animals in some of the shots, which I love. It was a special evening. Little Victoria was wearing a dress that was hand crocheted by her Grandmother on her Daddy's side. What a precious heirloom. 

My favorite part of the session came as the sun was setting over the cutest little barn that sits unpretentiously at the back of the property. Little Victoria was just as cooperative as she had been months earlier and she sat like a pro and posed for me as the sky gave us the prettiest colors. Wow! I sure do love my job! 

Special thanks to the Kilby family for having me! I always enjoy my time with you guys!

My Friend, Peyton

My little Granddaughter, Peyton June is 2! She had her birthday in October, so we had fun taking pictures in the woods and playing in the leaves. This girl is a happy little soul, so getting her to smile for Mimi was a breeze! We just played like we do every day! 

It's been so fun watching her grow and learn moment by moment. She has recently made amazing progress in her verbal skills and she just says it all! One of her favorite things to say lately is, "You're my friend, Mimi". I'm sure you know how that melts my heart. She loves to pretend to be talking on the phone, "I'll be there! Okay, bye", she says. One of her favorite things is doing puzzles. And listen, she's not messing around with any toddler puzzles with little knobs on the pieces. Peyton can do large puzzles with smaller pieces...even if there is no picture to work from. She impresses me! But her most favorite thing is throwing, kicking or bouncing a ball. We have spent countless hours "playing balls".  She instructs me..."two hands, Mimi". 

Peyton June is such a sweet little person...we are friends for sure and I hope we always will be. Her hugs and kisses and conversation are all a huge part of my life. 
I love her so much, but the cool thing is, I really like her, too

Peyton is a BIG Toy Story fan. More recently she has entered a Mickey, Minnie phase.
