Yep, I just messed up my fun little instagram puzzle I had going but oooh - I just had to share :) Such a fun session last night with @rachelturley.  They were seriously singing for me "Oh, how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above. Bees were humming, sweet birds singing, Music ringing thru the grove." You guys are so awesome!! And yes, we successfully avoided the active beehive a few feet away.  Always an adventure!
Thanks to everyone who participated in our #hugsfromhollyday last week.  Galleries have been sent out and the blog has been updated - not that's it's totally up to date but it's at least less behind than usual :) Enjoy! πŸ’•
Happy Saturday!

I'm always amazed at how awesome my families and seniors look for my sunrise sessions.  They totally rocked it this morning! 😍😍😍 Naps this afternoon anyone?
A big thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate #hugsfromhollyday with us today and our free Holly sized photo sessions!  What an amazing evening!  So much love and snuggles - I think we have a new tradition! πŸ’•

#hugsfromhollyday
Join us this Thursday, May 3, as we honor and celebrate #hugsfromhollyday. Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious. Let's spread this joy as we scatter sunshine in Holly's honor on her birthday. 
Here's how YOU can get involved on Thursday, May 3:
1) wear PINK in Holly's honor
2) make a plan to share hugs and spread joy and love through acts of heartfelt kindness for those in your community. Smile more. Compliment somebody. Write a kind note. Share treats (or chicken nuggets). Do a free lemonade stand. Leave a bigger tip than usual. Pay for the person behind you in the drive through. Donate a book in Holly's honor. Turn up the music and dance...the list is endless. Be creative!
3) capture your family spreading joy and post your pictures using the hashtag #hugsfromhollyday

Share this! Shout it from the rooftops! Let's spread kindness and love and make Thursday a HOLLYday!

Continuing the random, cool tip - every image you take has the image number embedded in the EXIF data.  You can check your shutter count for your DSLR anytime.  I use Bridge - so File - File info... - RAW DATA <aux:ImageNumber>308875.  Yes, I do tend to overshoot just a little πŸ˜‰
Happy Monday!  Don't mind my posts while I try a little something new.  They may seem pretty random for a while, but bear with me (or unfollow if you prefer - that's fine too :). Just having a little fun with Instagram. 
And yes, this is my very squirmy very mobile and totally adorable baby Drew growing up way too fast! 13 months this week. πŸ˜™ 
Enjoy!
Anyone who's done the Baptism Photo adventure with me know how much I LOVE baptism photo sessions! πŸ€—  Just under a dozen little ones so far this year and all up on my new blog - yay! πŸ•Š  Link in profile.  Check out all my new little besties :) This is the perfect time of year for baptism photos before my crazy Christmas family photo rush which pretty much lasts July through December. πŸ˜™ And big thanks to all the awesome moms!! @turleyseven @mymogilife @stacidgray @eattolivedaily @tarajohnsonbennett @traceyguevara @eschaumann @kristalynep
Wow!  What did Erin talk me into doing 😜 Any of you who know the adorable @erinschurtz of @mommihealth knows that she has the most amazing ideas and has this talent of getting everyone excited right along with her!  Just ask her about our Noah's ark meets Play-Doh meets sandbox YouTube shenanigan! πŸ¦πŸ‡πŸŠπŸ•Š Good times!  She's got a new Moms Go Live adventure and I guess since I have 9 kids and love being a part of all of her adventures, I get the honor of being her featured guest this week!  Come join us Tuesday morning for our discussion of chaos, quirky kids, faith, and fun and how I juggle all that with my photography business. πŸ“·  Link in profile.  Come cheer me on and hold my hand as I get totally launched out of my comfort zone. πŸ˜‚ πŸš€
