Happy first day of spring! I can’t really complain as our entire winter felt like summer. Somehow, I am still ecstatic about the change of the season. There is no better way to welcome blooming flowers and sunshine, than this little spring miracle. Hello Kate. Welcome to the world :)

What a great way to start my morning! Look at these precious buns! Baby Easton was such a delight to photograph. His mama and him shared so many sweet moments as we chased him around the beach. What a great, upbeat duo! Thanks for setting my day off right :)

I can’t believe my little guy is already one! I’m so sad that he is a toddler. I’m just not ready to be angry with him :) Happy Birthday you monster. At least you smiled for me at 7 days old!
