Happy 2013…and some photo shoots

2012-12-31 iPhone 67457

It seems like we just barely celebrated bringing in 2012.  And now it’s 2013.  How did that happen? 

I have a sneaking suspicion 2013 is going to be a good year.  I’m working hard on my “one word” motto for 2013 and Dave’s whipped us in shape with some new resolutions.

I’m excited to download New Years celebration pictures but in the meantime, here are a couple photo shoots.

I am kind of secretly happy that my girls and their friends actually ask for photo shoots.

They tell me how they want to pose and I just snap away.2012-11-30 friends 653582012-11-30 friends 653622012-11-30 friends 65391

Claire and her friends did not want to miss out on the fun.2012-11-30 friends 653542012-11-30 friends 65356

But the other girls could hardly help themselves from getting in the shots.2012-11-30 friends 653922012-11-30 friends 65394

The leaf-throwing somehow led to the idea of doing some leaf-raking service for the neighbors.2012-11-30 friends 65415And I love that even more than photo shoots.

I love that Elle and her friends can actually DO their own photo shoots:2012-12-21 elle's photoshoot 66653They just took off and did these on their own one day.

Happy New Year!


  1. The more I see of Elle's photography, the more I love it! She's amazing! Did you say one time that she's on instagram? I just started getting into it more, and I'd love to see her stuff. :) My account is mmmelindy.

  2. I am jealous! Elle is becoming an amazing photographer. If mine photos only look a 10th a gorgeous I would be thrilled.

  3. She is super talented! What fun to have memories as beautiful as those at such a young age!

  4. Help! Sorry to ask a question on your comment section.

    I have been struggling with bedtime with my 3 year old daughter since summer time. Before our 4 week trip to Utah (I live in PA) she slept like a princess. Now, every night is a huge battle and usually ends on a bad note. My husband and I have tried everything.

    Any tips? She is super stubborn.

    please respond to anneggpeay@gmail.com

  6. Those photos are gorgeous!!! I and I am in love with her boots! Where did she get those?

  7. Beautiful photos, they really had a great time! I just got my first DSLR with a remote, it helps so much as I learn :)
