WHO DOESN'T LOVE A LOVE NOTE?

Did you know that I send out a newsletter?

It's TRUE! I really do.

Every so often, maybe a few times per month, I'll send out a newsletter. I call it "Love Notes." And I call it that because, quite honestly, I don't like to get junk in my inbox, and I don't want to put junk in your inbox, either.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

My mornings usually begin with one or both of you in my bed beside me. Sometimes you wake up before me, and I’m roused by your sweet little hands touching my cheek. Sometimes I wake first, and I try to sneak downstairs for a quiet cup of coffee by myself.

THE MAGIC HOUR FOUNDATION

It has occurred to me, previously and recently, that I and my family are blessed to enjoy relatively good health. Sure, we get colds and ear infections, and my husband and I are old enough to have aches and pains when we sit for too long. But all in all, we are truly fortunate and truly blessed.

THE S FAMILY

There is something so beautiful and so pure and so innocent about babies. And it isn't just that they are tiny and soft and delicate. It's more than how deeply they trust and how vulnerable they seem. It's that they give us hope for the future. Babies remind us that there is goodness and purity in the world; that there exists the potential for a love so strong and so deep that it defies explanation.

THANK YOU AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I’d like to admit something. I’m always kind of amazed when a family invites me into their home to make photos. Home is a most sacred space! Home is where families learn to give and receive love.

A WEEK OF MAMA, DAY 7

You poor button. Something made you cry tonight. Maybe a bad dream, maybe a night terror, maybe something else. But you were crying and crying and crying, and kicking and screaming, and telling me to get out and to go away.

A WEEK OF MAMA, DAY 6

"But I want to come with you," you said. "You can't, dear heart. Not tonight." It's not that we don't enjoy your and your sister's company. Quite the contrary, actually.
