I hope everyone out there has a wonderful and safe holiday. We’ll be catching our towns little 4th of July Parade with the kiddo, and hopefully making it to fireworks (I’m not too sure how Liam will feel about that though…) In case you need a great recipe for the weekend, I highly suggest making my favorite red,white, and blueberry cake. It’s sure to be a hit at any holiday party. Snag the recipe here on Style Me Pretty Living.
OK, so I’m trying really, really, hard not to completely over-share here and make this into the worlds longest blog post, but these two kiddos are just too much. The bows, the outfits, their sweet little personalities… it doesn’t get any more adorable than this. Once upon a time I was supposed to photograph Michelle’s wedding day… until I found out I was going to have a baby… and I was due the day before her wedding (!!!). I was super bummed that I couldn’t be a part of their day, I loved Michelle’s personality and style and was looking forward to working with her. But, sometimes the universe has other plans!
Fast forward almost 2 years later and now Charlotte and Olivia are soon to become big sisters and I finalllllly got the chance to spend some time with Michelle and her family. These two girls couldn’t be more excited to welcome their little sister – they even picked out a special friendship necklace just for her! I had a blast taking a break from the weeks of non-stop rain and spending some time outdoors with this lovely family. Thanks to their gorgeous and stylish mama Michelle for letting me capture such a special time. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you all!

We’ve had a busy spring here at our little urban farm! As summer sets in we’re excited to start to see the benefits of all of our hard work. The chickens are doing great, and we’re anxious to harvest our first crops – we’ve got kale, broccoli, berries, cucumber, zucchini, and tons of tomatoes – plus a peach tree! Liam is most excited about the blueberries, and he loves to go out and visit his “bawk-bawks” in the morning. He even shares his apples with them (well, sometimes…) So far it’s been a pretty good experience, and so fun to teach Liam about where his food comes from.
Britni + Brad are so completely in love, and I had so much fun spending the morning with them. We had the perfect little engagement session a few weeks back (thankfully we had a break in the rain!) and I cannot wait to be a part of their wedding day this July!
It’s pretty hard to believe my little guy is almost 2! This summer has been pretty darn awesome. We’ve hung out at the pool, got him his very first ice cream cone, and have explored every park in town. He’s obsessed with trains, dinosaurs, and cows (that third one came after a recent visit to this place). He is my inquisitive little soul, always cautiously observing everything around him. He loves to laugh, and make everyone else laugh – and he is always talking – always! He brings so much joy to our lives. Some of my favorite Liam-isms as of recently:
Me: “Liam, we’re going to go to the grocery store.”
Liam: “ok… (brief pause) and see a cow?”
Me: “Liam, we need to put on our shoes to go outside”
Liam: “Noooohhhh, dorky!”
Me: “Let’s get in the car and put our buckles on”
(before we even open the car door)
Liam: “Ahhh – no! owww!! it’s too tight!!”
Me: “Liam it’s time to eat dinner”
Liam: “Ok… and see a cow?”
Liam! I love you, you little goofball!
