Cooper James || Oh How You've Grown || 2nd Birthday

Cooper our sweet little man, you turn two today, and while I can’t believe it…your daddy and I are doing a little happy dance that for the first time in 4 years we are officially out of the baby stage...and we survived. You are just learning to talk (your first word was Hi!) and you can now hold your own in battles with your sister. You took your time walking, but are now running circles around us. We still have to work on that binky but we’ll get there.  You make are hearts full and our family complete.

I don’t think there’s any denying that I’m a lil’ bit obsessed with my littles. I love shooting weddings, families, and just about any special event, but when I’m not clicking away capturing other’s beautiful moments I’m always craving capturing my own.

I really believe that life is all about collecting beautiful moments and I treasure every time I can get my wiggly, yet adorable, little rugrats to give me a smile or sweet candid moment in front of my lens.

Our sweet little girl, it’s hard to believe you turn three today.  I just laid you down for your daily nap and while I sit here reflecting on all of the wonderful little things I love about my little girl I find myself thankful that 1. I have you and your brother on the same schedule and 2. That I’m fortunate enough to be here everyday with you watching you learn and grow.

When we found out we were having a little boy, I knew even then that milestones like his first haircut would be cherished memories.

So in an effort to preserve those locks just a bit longer, your daddy and I couldn’t help ourselves to do a little styled shoot with you. You’ll look back one day and google search “manbun” and see where we found our inspiration. For just a few more days you’ll be my topknot and someday I’ll get to look back on these playful little images with a smile and all the memories wrapped up into your year with long locks.
