august photos.

to say i have taken a lot of pictures this summer is an understatement! capturing time with family and friends, farmer’s markets, nature, leland, business photo shoots, and more. phew! most of them don’t even end up online or on facebook, etc. because i love keeping those memories close. i still don’t know how i feel about putting my little one’s pictures all over this blog to be honest, so i don’t do it too often. i haven’t spent much time on the internet or too many blogs lately (mainly because i’ve been so busy) and i do miss catching up on some reading. although, it is so refreshing to step away from technology! however, this little place isn’t forgotten and there are a few pictures taken as of late that i want to share…you know, some before and afters of jay’s extreme haircut and all ;) some of these i’ve posted over at my photography blog.

the haircut!! sorry for the model-like pictures :)

now for the pre-haircut photos….

another handsome one! (my brother)oh my!! leland’s face in these two…

some photos we took a while ago…

phew. that was a lot of pictures :) hope you all are having a great weekend!! i’m going to go enjoy some time with my husband and eat some nutella & strawberries…the best!

much love.


Love all the photos, especially the last one! Wonderful colors and such sweet captures.


thank you so much hannah! :)

These are so good! Your little one is adorable.

I was wondering, how do you store your personal photos? Do you have an external hard drive? I have so many photos but I’m afraid if my computer crashes I’ll lose them all. Thanks!

You look gorgeous, as always!! And you always have the best pictures. I’m a little jealous :)

You have such a beautiful family!
Nutella & strawberries are the BEST!

Looks like you guys have had a wonderful summer so far!

Your blog might be my new favorite of all time. I am currently obsessed with natural light photography. I am trying to capture some images similar to yours but no luck so far, but then again, I am not a photographer…. just someone who loves playing with a really nice camera that I still don’t know how to use!

following you!

p.s.– I currently have a giveaway for cute custom necklace from ashley from the shine project on my blog. You should check it out and enter! The Shine Project Giveaway

I just stumbled upon your blog and just love it! Your photos are beautiful. Where did you get the darling floral top? We have family pictures coming up, it is exactly what i’ve been looking for!

I always enjoy looking at your photos – you have such a good eye!

No way…Leland??? That’s my hubs’ name!

This is really random BUT just today I was trying to figure out what would go really well with Nutella aside from toast… and you just said strawberries, and my pregnant tummy said YES!!! haha… Anyway , beautiful photos as always! I know what you mean about not being sure about posting your baby’s photos on your blog… I’m questioning that too… and i’m sure I won’t be doing it too often either…Although I do plan on sharing photos of her every once in a while. You have good looking siblings! What a sweet family!

Your blog is making me realize that I need to have me photos taken with my daughter, she is going to be a year next month and we don’t have very many photos together, thanks for the reminder. :)
