Mason’s debut | Newborn

Dear friends, I’d like to introduce you to the little man who stole my heart last week, my nephew and Godson, Mason.  Mr. Mason joined our family almost two weeks ago, and I got to go out to Wisconsin and spend a couple days with him and his parents last week.  He’s amazing, smells like baby, loves the sound of my shutter clicking away, and cuddles with his Auntie Megan.  I’m looking forward to many adventures ahead with this guy, favorite books, made-up stories, hikes in the woods to introduce him to Edgar the troll, running around Tom Sawyer’s Island at Disney, and watching his life unfold.  Here are a few previews of our two days together, and the first of many photos in this little guy’s life.  Here’s to exciting adventures ahead Mason, Love, Auntie Megs!

Avery | One Year Old!

I cannot believe a year has passed since I first met this little girl.

Avery was wonderful in her newborn and 6 month sessions, I knew her one year old session would be great.  This morning Avery was her amazing-self, full of spirit, laughter and smiles (once we got to know each other again).  We had lots of fun running around on the patio and playing in the  balloons her mom and dad blew up for the occasion.  Serious props go to Avery’s amazing mom for thinking of the balloons.  Like always it was a joy to see this little family just having fun and loving each other.  I can’t wait to see all the adventures in store for miss Avery, and her big life! Happy Birthday Avery!

Happy Birthday Liv! A Golden Book Pajama Party

It seems like it was only yesterday I was driving to HCMC to document the first day of Miss Liv’s life.  Being able to walk beside her family has been an incredible blessing this year.  Not only was it great seeing Liv grow but being able to witness this season in the life of her family was incredible. Liv has two awesome parents who love her and her big-brother Reese with an awesome joy and understanding of the blessings they are.

Tonight I was able to spend the evening celebrating Liv, enjoying the beautiful August night, and hanging out with a bunch of adorable toddlers and their parents.

Thank you Heidi and Jonathan for letting me journey with you this year, for all the ways you’ve continued to model not only Christian parenting but living each day as a blessing from God.

Happy Birthday Liv!

The Crarys {Family}

Jenn and Jeff got married a year ago and I was thrilled to be able to be part of their day.  Jenn is a friend from home and it was great being able to be there the day she got married.  This summer I again got to shoot not only her and her fantastic husband Jeff, but their daughter as well for some Mother’s Day photos.  Such a fun loving and happy family, it was a blast spending the morning with them at Olbrich Gardens in Madison, WI.

Kat & Josiah {Family}

Dear Kat & Josiah, thank you for being awesome. Love, Megan.

If you know Kat & Josiah then you know I speak the truth. They are awesome. If you don’t know them then you’ll have to take my word for it.  I first met Kat my freshman year at college where I was the unsure freshman and she was the crazy-cool RA on the second floor.  Since that time we’ve become friends and through her, Josiah and I as well.  I am beyond blessed to have them in my life.  They are a quiet yet bold witness to what a Christian marriage looks like and are continually trying to live an authentic life.  Thanks for gifting me with the opportunity to capture some of your awesomeness on camera guys!

{I’m pretty sure this was taken after Kat had helped me get the burrs out of my hair after I backed up into them to get a shot prior to this….and then almost did it again.}

Melissa & Joan {Family}

Melissa is becoming a regular here, every other month or so….May, August, October. But this time Melissa’s mom Joan joined us in front of the camera.  I truly enjoy spending time shooting this family.  Both mother daughter are a lot of fun to talk with and it makes the session time just fly by.  Thanks for yet another wonderful afternoon ladies! Enjoy the previews!

The McDowell Kids!

Tonight I got to spend some time with one of my soon to be step-sisters, Becky, and her amazing kid. Becky and her husband, Aaron, recently welcomed their twin boys, Hunter and Hayden into the world. It was a blast getting to hang out with them tonight. Enjoy the sneak peek!

It was a long afternoon for everyone. More photos to come later next week. 🙂
