"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very exciting happens, but those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” -L.M. Montgomery

Spending the morning with this precious family was just like that. Simple little pleasures. It was such an honor to document this sweet time in the life of the Robinson family. Enjoy. <3

It's been several months since I've participated in our monthly 10 on 10 blog post and I decided that's way too long. I've honestly not been shooting my kids digitally very much lately. I've mostly been shooting them on film and today was scan day so I thought it would be perfect to jump in with my talented friends to share a bit of personal work. Head on around the circle and visit my friend Kristi and her precious family. You can see her post here

It's been way too long since I participated in our 10 on 10 lifestyle blog circle. The past couple months have been a little crazy around here with busy season and some traveling for our family. So I was determined to get in on things this month! I have been shooting lots of film for my personal work. Mostly because it's so beautiful and has really given me a creative push this year but also because NO EDITING. woohoo! So here's a little mix of some digital and some film favorites from the past month. Be sure to follow around the circle and visit my friend Colie's blog here.

For this month's 10 on 10 I am sharing something totally new for me. I took a film course with Ashley Crawford this past month and I wanted to share some of my film captures from my first two rolls. I have wanted to learn film for a very long time and after meeting Ashley this spring for some headshots and falling even more in love with her work, I had to get in on her next workshop. It has been so much fun for me creatively. It requires me to slow down and take in my scene even more so that my images tell the story's I intend. I feel so stingy with each click of my shutter so that's something that I'm getting used to but I really like how it makes me think. Film isn't something I plan on doing for clients but I love it for personal work because it's so timeless and BONUS! no editing! yay for more time with my family! I am looking so forward to diving more into film in the coming months, so here are some shares from my first 2 rolls!

Head on over to my friend Mary Colleen, who happens to be AMAZING with film and such an inspiration to me! Go check her post out here!

You guys. This session is so special to me. Ashley and I met last year in Austin, TX at Joy Prouty's wildflower's workshop. I loved getting to know her there and have fallen in love with her work. Truly, her photographic voice is so beautiful. So I was over the moon that I got to photograph her beautiful family a few weeks back. We met at 630 in the morning and ended with breakfast, hot coffee and a long talk about our passion. It doesn't get much better than that. Enjoy this sweet family's images. They were a family photographers dream.

Hey Friends! Time for another month of photos from our family for this months 10 on 10(although I'm making it a habit of posting more than 10, woops!) This month has been filled with LOTS of time being outside, exploring and enjoying this beautiful spring we're having here in East Tennessee. 

I hope you'll continue on around the circle and visit my friend Breanna's post. Her Alaskan adventures always give me a case of wanderlust! Enjoy ya'll!

I have come to look so forward to this post every month. I love getting to look back over our personal photos and carve out a little time to be creative just for myself and my family. This month has been filled with the usual slower rhythm of winter. A bit more time spent here at home focusing on school and being together before the business of Spring arrives. I always feel like these first couple of months of the year are spent with a lot of time reflecting on the past year and casting a vision for the current year. Aaron and I want to spend a bit less time looking at our phones and being more intentional with our time, reading and being more present with the children. A dear friend and client of mine passed away unexpectedly last week and her death has even solidified my desire for intentionality. She was a complete inspiration. She DID live intentionally. Her life was a testimony of God's love and faithfulness. She was an encouragement to all those who knew her and she left a legacy of love for her husband and children. Our hearts are broken for her husband and children, so would you please join me in praying for them and asking God to comfort their hearts? 

This year, I've made a commitment to get in the frame once a week. After this past week's loss of my friend Lexi, I've never felt more the infinite value of a photograph. So I am so thankful to have this challenge to be in the frame with my children more. I hope you'll head on around the circle and check out the rest of the ladies in 10 on 10 group. You can head over to my friend Cris's blog and check out her gorgeous work.

Every month when I put this blog post together, I feel as though I just wrote the one for the previous month. But not this time. It seems like a very long time has passed since our last 10 on 10 and so many things have happened since then. Ellie turned 5 last month which for some reason feels like such a big deal to me. I felt the exact same way when Beck turned 5. I think it's because it's such a big year. They grow up so much in this year + there's Kindergarten in the fall, she'll probably lose her first tooth, the list goes on. We celebrated really simply this year just the 6 of us and it was exactly what we needed and honestly what I think made her feel most special. Then of course there was Christmas which was really wonderful. We tried to pack in all the traditions we could and fill their memories with celebrations of Jesus birth and lots of time with family.

Corinne seems to have grown so much this month. She's completely mobile, crawling everywhere, and even standing up. (tears) Then of course, this week, our first snow of winter. We don't get lots of snow here in TN so it is always magical when we do. <3 I know we're supposed to only share 10 each month but I just couldn't narrow it down more than this. I hope you guys are having a great start to 2017! 

Please head on around the circle by heading to my friend Kristi's blog to see her beautiful photos from this past month.

I can't believe another month has passed since out last 10 on 10! Aaron and I are always saying you have no idea how fast time flies until you have children and begin to watch them grow. Seriously though! This past month has been really been a lot of fun in our house. We had our first over night trip as a family of 6 on a mini vacation, had several fun homeschool field trips and have FINALLY begun to welcome fall. The weather is beginning to cool down and the leaves are beginning to change. I started taking clients again regularly since having Corinne, so once again our family is adjusting to a new rhythm. I certainly don't juggle all these things well most days. At best, it's some sort of organized chaos over here. Our house is usually a mess and the laundry is always piled high. But I feel our home is filled with love and laughter and so much Grace upon Grace upon Grace. And for us, that's what we can handle right now. We're thankful for Jesus and each other, Amen. haha!  Thanks so much for coming over to my blog to see some of my favorite images from this month.

Head on over to my friend Kristi Burton's blog to see her 10 on 10 this month. Her post is filled with beautiful fall images and her adorable family.

I can't say enough how much I have loved getting to know this family over the past couple of years. I first met them when we did a maternity session for their first son, then his birth and the rest is history. I've photographed them several times and I always love getting to spend time with them. I love seeing parents blossom into motherhood and fatherhood and as special as it is to see and spend time with a first time mom, I adore seeing a mother settle into motherhood with more than one child. It totally changes the dynamics of your family and stretches you in new ways. Your heart grows with even more love than you knew you had in you. It's amazing how that happens. <3 Enjoy this sweet newborn session with baby Luke and his crew. He is such a blessed little boy. Blessings to you guys and Congrats!

I was so excited to photograph this sweet family again. I photographed them about 2 years ago and absolutely loved meeting them and spending time with them. I knew I was going to love this session because when mom contacted me she wanted me to get some outdoor family photos and to get some of them in their home just documenting their everyday. Which is one of my favorite things to do! Enjoy this sweet session of this beautiful family. 2016-01-11_00042016-01-11_00052016-01-11_00062016-01-11_00072016-01-11_00082016-01-11_00092016-01-11_00102016-01-11_00112016-01-11_00122016-01-11_00132016-01-11_00142016-01-11_00152016-01-11_00162016-01-11_0017
