Project 52

Week 16 of 52:  Places.

Oh, the places you’ll go.  And we’ve been to many together.  Jason and I.  And life always leads us right back to our comfortable bedroom.

It was another one of my insomnia cases. Up at 3AM staring at the back of my eyelids.  Trying desperately to fall asleep.  I opened my eyes and wah-lah.  This heart shined gracefully across our wedding photo.  It made me smile and remember the day.  The place.  The feeling.  The love.  My Valentine’s Day Scentsy burner sits on our dresser and illuminates hearts all over our ceiling and just one heart placed just so.  It takes me back to that place of love.

ISO 6400, 1/40 sec (wowzer!  that’s why it looks so light outside, it was pitch black in our bedroom and I had to manually focus.)

Erin.  Baby Bump Numero Dos.

She’s glowing.

And so is her excited family.
Ben is going to be such a fun BIG brother!
They took their engagement photos right in this exact spot five years ago.  Erin’s idea to come back for her maternity session.  How cool?!
One became two.  Two became three.  About to be four.  In five short years.

Introducing Kinley Lynn. Columbus Newborn Photography

Kinley Lynn. Newborn.

Born April 9th at 8:59 AM.

She’s just a little thing, weighing 6 pounds, 9 ounces and 20 inches long. Momma didn’t know she was going to be so little based on previous ultrasounds. So Kinley gets to go shopping for new clothes and she’s barely a week old!

All because two people fell in love…

Long beautiful eyelashes and pretty blue eyes.  Love.

Every detail.  Just perfect.
Proud parents.  Love at first sight.  Congrats, Chris and Courtney!  So very blessed!

Week 15 of 52: Color

Finally a warm day in Ohio.  Thank you, sweet baby Jesus!

The photo on the right… that right there I just have to frame.  It makes me smile so big.  It’s the perfect depiction of her innocence, curiosity and potty-training age.
I know we are supposed to only be posting ONE photo for this project.  But…I am a rule breaker and well…I just LOVE how absorbed she becomes.  I love these little captures that freeze time.  It just makes me want this moment back.

Week 14 of 52: Create

Gymnastics is a wonderful sport where you turn and twist and create this beautiful form of art with your body.  I am very proud to say I coach children this amazing sport and I am constantly in awe of the beauty and grace these gymnasts learn and execute.  Here’s a photo of Celi competing her balance beam routine at a gymnastics meet on Saturday.  She even finished it with a smile!
