A couple weeks ago before fall arrived, these 5 cousins invaded poor grandma’s house for a sleepover. They loved every minute of it.

And it took until a few weeks into first grade, but that big guy down there finally lost his first tooth! He’s got a super cool story about it too…dad yanked the thing out with his bare hands! (ew)

I don’t normally photograph large family get togethers, but these guys have been with me since the very beginning of my photography journey.

And they’re just so darn cute.

So when Kate asked if I would be willing to photograph all the siblings families together for her parents, I just couldn’t say no.

It sealed the deal when she said there would be a newborn among the crowd. We’re nearing the time in my life when my littlest is getting to be more of a little *kid* than a *baby*. And this is a dangerous time because baby fever hits me like a truck. And then we end up with more babies! So my getting a baby fix is very important to sanity of my entire family ;).

Well hey there friends! I do believe this has been the very longest break I’ve ever taken from my beloved blog. I’m going to be honest with you. Life has just gotten in the way and I am still figuring out how to get back on my feet as a mom of 3 and a family of 5.

Yes…our baby is now 2 years old.

Yes…I should definitely have my act together by now.

I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe I should have taken some organization or time management classes in college. Or maybe I never should have signed up for Pinterest.

I definitely should have never signed up for Pinterest.

But…it is what it is :). Summer with a 10 year old, a 6 year old and a 2 year old very nearly killed me. We took a lot of amazing family trips, we did swim team, we did camps, we played and played and were hot and sweaty and had friends and neighbors over and stayed up late and just generally had an amazing time. I got to meet and photograph some wonderful, beautiful families and can’t wait to find time to share all of them with you!

And somehow…here we are…almost 1 year since my last post! Let’s start catching you up with some of my most favorite families of the past year!
