When I was around 10 or 11 years old, my Daddy took us to the Rodeo that came into town. I’m 28 now and can still remember dressing up as a cowgirl. My Mom even used her brown eyeliner pencil to put freckles on my face (beause all cowgirls have freckles, right?). When I heard the rodeo was coming, I knew I had to recreate the memory for my family. Micah, our sweet 3 year old, loves Woody from Toy Story so he brought him along. We all dressed up in our rodeo gear and headed to the event. My Mom and Dad were there, so of course they spoiled Micah even more by purchasing a soda. It was a great time and I am thankful for the great memories from the rodeo.

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Something about it is so romantic and gives me the fuzzies in my tummy. You know what I’m talking about? It’s not so cold that you have to wear a heavy coat and its not blazing hot. The weather is so beautiful, so lovely. We will be offering fall mini sessions from now until mid-October. Get ready to fall in love

I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this beautiful birth story. I do believe the photographs will speak for themselves. Natalie labored for a long 26 hours yet had a smile on her face and a positive attitude the entire time. We laughed a lot, especially after a nurse said that laughing causes more contractions. There were several brave women next door who labored naturally and at one point Natalie exclaimed, “They sound like dinosaurs!”. We all laughed quite a bit over that statement and I assured her that those noises were normal (at least I hope so because I had a natural labor and was VERY loud). The nurses, midwives, and doctors at Vanderbilt were simply amazing. Phillip did amazing in helping Natalie through her labor and initiated a dance party to keep her spirits up (and to get the baby to come on out). When Amelie came into the world, Natalie kissed her sweet little cheek. As soon as Natalie quit kissing Amelie, she would cry and Natalie would kiss her cheek again. This had everyone in the room crying from the utter sweetness.

I could write on and on about the sweet and cherishable moments from the day, but I will let you enjoy the story yourself. Please take your time as you scroll through these photos. I hope you enjoy the story of Amelie Mercy Bernier coming into the world.

What is summer without being a butterfly in the butterfly garden? Claire, who is now 3, melted my heart as she freely twirled and danced and played in the local butterly garden. Within the short hour that we spent together, she became Elsa from frozen, played in her castle, and dressed up as a butterly fairy (in hopes to call out all the butterflies of course). The wonder and innocence of a child is such a treasure to behold. Here’s to year three, precious butterly fairy!
