I have totally neglected my website as of late and I feel terrible! I have good reason, though:
I’m a nanny! This is my first week caring for the cute kiddos, so I’ve been trying to fall into a routine. I get to hang out with a toddler all day and read Frozen books, swing, color and decipher babble. 😉
I’m also a fresh part of a really cool new app called KKTalkee, which helps people in China learn better English through live video broadcasting. Basically, I deliver a bunch of content and then answer any questions and encourage them to speak. I’m really loving this because those who know me well know I’m a total stickler for grammar and spelling, and I’m also following in my grandma’s teaching footsteps – just in a modern way.
It’s been a week of firsts! Glad to have the nerves shaken off and ready to grind 🙂
When Moo.com has a sale, I always take advantage. It seems like these sales happen right as I’m running out of business cards – win! Anyways, I was taking advantage of this sale last night, which meant perusing my photo catalog to pick out my favorite photos from the last few months, so I can print them onto my new set of business cards. It sounds silly but I hardly ever look back at my work, so going through all of these photos totally brought back memories. And made me homesick.
In no particular order, here are a few of my favorites from last fall:
I think I’ll look back through my work more often. This was just what I needed to cure my homesickness ❤ I can’t wait to start networking here so I can get some more amazing clients!
The perks are endless – I work my own hours, doing what I love. But my favorite part of my job is easily the amazing people I meet. I have met some incredible people through my lens, like the Peck family.
It has been unbelievable watching these two sweeties grow.
The very first time I saw these two was around Easter last year! It’s absolutely insane how fast they grow up!
I saw them again for family photos in April
And then in June to take some Fourth of July photos before I left to go back home for 6 months while Bobby was in school.
Landon, who turns 1 on January 7th…
Adalena, who will be 3 on December 28th!
I came back to Kansas to see a sweet (almost) three year old talking up a storm, and this little guy taking his first steps just before his first birthday!
The older they get, the more and more alike they look. I had a blast capturing them for their benchmark birthdays 🙂
Adalena was a princess, and of course Landon got to smash a cake!
..Which he was not interested in at all.
Bath time afterwards was fun though!
We finished our photoshoot by playing hide & seek and saving mom from monsters.
I am absolutely fascinated by siblings – the ways they interact, how they can be so alike and yet incredibly different, and how cool it must be to have someone who just gets it.
Before you get to thinking that I’m a total nut case, you should know that I’m an only child. I didn’t have any partners in crime until my childhood best friend and her sister became my step-sisters when I was 10, and then I also gained a younger step-brother a year or so later. In short, I have 2 sisters from another mister and a brother from another mother. While that is incredibly fun to say, I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to have this:
These two are an absolute joy! I coached Kate, the taller (but younger) of the two, who is just the sweetest thing ever. After meeting her older sis, Kassidy, I can totally see where she gets it. Shoutout to you two for being the most photogenic sisters ever!
