I came across this quote today and simply fell in love with it.. and, well, it is so me. 


"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love." -Zooey Deschanel

“I will not play at tug o’ war. 
I’d rather play at hug o’ war, 
Where everyone hugs 
Instead of tugs, 
Where everyone giggles 
And rolls on the rug, 
Where everyone kisses, 
And everyone grins, 
And everyone cuddles, 
And everyone wins.” 
-Shel Silverstein

Where everyone hugs 

Instead of tugs, 

Where everyone giggles 

And rolls on the rug, 

Where everyone kisses, 

And everyone grins, 

And everyone cuddles, 

And everyone wins.”

Had a great session with this family today.  A digital preview for now, I can’t wait to see the film images I took of these four :)

Though I’m delving more into film I still do digital and honestly I am always torn between the two… I more often prefer film but the digital works really well for my newborn sessions.

How ironic of me to share this photo of Opa not long ago.. sadly he passed away a few days ago.  And while we miss him terribly already, we find much comfort in knowing that he lived a very long and good life.

Cupid’s bow. 

Loved little Miss Eva. Both for her sweetness and the fact that her lips crest up at the sides and are shaped like a cupid’s bow just like Vasili’s :)

I heart you my new little friend.  
Downloading film scans from my Iowa trip now (posing was done by Brittany Woodall of Baby as Art), what an awesome surprise it was to get these today!
