✨Happy Friday!! ✨

I remember when I was taking this picture, I kept oohing and aching, @ellenpyoga must have thought I was crazy. But I loved it for so many reasons. .
.
I think the biggest reason is because of how I see Ellen. To me, she is filled with endless energy, enthusiasm for life and light … she is full of so much light! As a yogi, she is dedicated to the practice of yoga, and as such when her world went a β€œlittle” (#understatement ) sideways, I got a first hand seat at watching how she is able to keep her sh*t together. .
.
Ellen, I adore you, LOVE your news and can’t wait to play in #Morroco

Hello to Milo, our #potcake pup β™₯️
.
He is my daughter’s bedmate, confidante and a teacher to those who don’t believe that ALL things can and WILL be eaten.
.
Milo lived on his own for almost three months and still isn’t quite sure what to make of us, but I’m thinking we’re starting to break through his feelings of fear that we won’t always be here for him. .

What an amazing time it is to be a senior in high school.
.
.
You are at the first of many crossroads you will meet in life. .
.
As a photographer, seniors are a joy to capture.Β Β They are energetic, they are so crazily hip; they are effortlessly beautiful.Β Β They are a seemingly clean slate waiting to be filled with knowledge and adventure.
.
.
I could not have loved my time with these four girls any more then I did.Β Β Thank you @lexxhidalgo for gathering your friends to make this session a complete success.Β Β I cannot wait to share with you ALL the amazing images … but until then… enjoy this little taste of what’s to come! .

We’ve all got both light and dark inside us.Β Β What matters is the part we choose to act on.Β Β That’s who we really are. -JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix.
This is Max.
.
.
He is my teacher.Β Β He is my critic.Β Β He is my champion. Β And.... he is my oldest child. .
.
It is the most infrequent of events that I get this child to sit in front of the camera for me.Β Β More often then not he has his own camera in his hands and chooses to not get in front of mine.Β Β That’s ok, I’m learning that if I can get Mickey in the shot, he will indeed sit for a few minutes. .
.
I am proud of him. He is so strong in his convictions and will work hard for what he believes in. Β He is studying psychology in school and anyone who knows him well, knows it is probably so he can continue to outwit his dad and me.
.
.
And I love him ❀️

I LOVE this shot, it speaks to me about resiliency.Β Β About the power to overcome.Β Β To me, I look at this image and I recognize that light and dark, yin and yang -that one does not exist without the other.Β Β But often we need to get to the other side before we recognize the strength that was birthed from our struggle.
.
.
Our luck held this morning, as it started to drizzle just as our session was coming to it’s end.Β Β We got a small peak of the sun but mostly it was a cool, damp morningΒ Β filled with the knowledge that the rain was coming. Β Which isn’t something I mind so much, a good thing too because it’s meant to rain all weekend! What are you doing?Β Β Will you dance between the raindrops?? .

Although he doesn’t often allow me to capture him in front of my lens in anything other then snapshots taken with my cell, my younger son allowed me to capture him QUICKLY the week before he headed back to FSU to begin his junior year. (As evidenced by the second picture! I had him all serious ...& then πŸ’₯ gone!) .
.
I have spent years making fun of my mother for kvelling over pictures. Now don’t get me wrong, I have spent my life cataloguing my family in pictures, -but I have officially gone to the dark side where I want to just pin this moment and the next to the board, so I can look at them slowly, lovingly because I am afraid I might miss a single second. .
.
My yoga teacher would tell me to simply stay mindful. But even as I write that sentence I know that the mindfulness makes me recognize how exquisitely fast it all goes by. Simply telling them I love them doesn’t feel like it’s enough. So for today, I will continue looking at this picture and sending warm fuzzies to my younger son. .
.
and fair warning … once I did ONE child’s picture, I begged the other TWO to let me get them as well. More Blakesberg babies -who aren’t such babies anymore to come β™₯️

What an amazing weekend I had which was capped off with a group senior session. Many thanks to Lexi, Sally, Madi & Brooke who made me smile the entire shoot. These girls are undeniably beautiful but they are also strong, resilient and so very smart. ✨

Thank you for coming out to play in front of my lens ... I can’t wait to share the rest with you! ❀️ Make-up by IvyLeez

This is my mom.
.
.
And today is her birthday! πŸŽ‚
.
.
πŸ’₯ Happy Birthday Sheila πŸ’₯
.
.
This picture was taken this past Thanksgiving … as I say that, I realize that holy sh**, almost a full year has past since we took this.Β Β Even 10 months later, it still has the power to make me smile.Β Β It still has the power to bring quickly to mind how absurd my children are.Β Β It still has the power to make me reminisce about being in everyone’s company and laughing at all the things that family’s do when they are together. .
.
And it makes me feel grateful. .
.
so help me wish my mom a very ✨HAPPY BIRTHDAY✨, I’m looking forward to filling your year with lots more laugher and shenanigans… and photographs … lots and lots of photographs! .
.
I love you β™₯️

It is with a heart filled with so much love that I post this image from a recent family session. This is Grace, no longer a senior but rather an #FSU freshman. Next to her is her smiling Mama... happy because her girl is doing all that is meant to do and so very proud that she’s off to college and incredible experiences that await!
.
.
The flip side to that smile is the Gracie-sized hole that sits in her heart as this year she doesn’t get to take that first day of school picture.
So @Gracelanders .. if your reading this ... on Monday as you start your first day of #freshman year ... have someone take a picture and send it to your mama ... β€˜cause I KNOW she’s already missing you! .
.
So ... as I head to #olympicheightshighschool to pick up my sophomore age daughter, I will probably hug her twice as hard with the knowledge that the clock is ticking for me as well β™₯️

And so we bid a fond farewell to #hiltonheadisland .
The beach sunrise was beautiful but couldn’t hold a candle to these two β™₯️
.
#seapines, #hhi, #sunrise

I woke up with the need to hear the ocean’s lullaby in my ears & sand under my toes ... how lucky that this is my morning view ❀️ it’s gonna be a #seapines kind of day
