I hope your fifth birthday is as fun as your third birthday was!
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.
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’m gonna miss these kiddos something fierce! ❤
Today is Ella’s first birthday!
I first met this sweetie just weeks after she was born. She was so teeny tiny and absolutely precious! It’s been incredible watching her grow and turn into a little girl, seeing her personality blossom and all the possibilities the future holds for her. Here are my favorites of Ella.
Happy Birthday Ella Bella! ❤
