Like all families out there, ours is very busy. Between all the obligations and commitments, I often worry that I’m missing important times with my family and when I see the very empty baby book that belongs to my third child, I cringe. The poor child has no documentation of his babyhood. I know he […]
The baby’s first day at school went well. Neither one of us cried very much. I feel good, I think he’s going to love his class and make some great friends. I am so excited to see what this year will bring! How are you all coping with the transition to the new school year? […]

This is one of my favorite maternity portraits. The mama floating in the water seems so dreamy and quiet. I have a framed gallery wrap of this in my studio and the printed version on canvas has been mistaken for a painting quite a few times.
After a 3 week separation from Ben while we were in Champaign and he was in Austin, the kids were super psyched that he was back in time to spend the 4th with us.
