Oh, My Winnie… two year photos

2 Years

Last year, I recapped this girl’s month-to-month, and I loved doing it. I contemplated keeping that trend going, but this year went by so quickly, she’s turning two before I even got my feet on the ground. It’s hard to believe she’ll be two on Monday. This last year was so full for us, and I am tenderhearted at the fact that it’s already over. Our girl grew leaps and bounds this year, surprising all of us with her words and skills. Her favorite things became her Little People and her puzzles – she can play with either of those for hours. She wasn’t a fan of the great outdoors last summer. It could be because she couldn’t walk, or it could be that she was taking a cue from her momma. Either way, we worked hard at changing her heart and here we are, two years old and she LOVES being “ow-side”. She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Micky and the Roadster Racers.  She also loves watching movies like Sing, The Secret Life of Pets, Monsters, Inc., and Zootopia. Our girl is an animal lover, but only in the cartoon or pretend form. We took her to the zoo, and she wasn’t impressed (maybe because none of them were talking?). Another trait she might get from momma.Getting her to smile at my camera is a full-time job. She’s a busy little thing, never sitting still for very long. One of her favorite things to do is “go, go, go,” which means running laps in our house or across the backyard.  I never want to forget her vocabulary at this time. I think it’s my favorite thing about her being two. Some of my favorite words of hers are:
Mickey – “Cow”
Minnie – “Bee”
Momma – “Baba”
Elbow – “Bel-bow”
Cereal – “Cereoleole” Everything about this kid is my favorite (including those curls). We had no idea how generous God could be, but this past year has shown us again and again that we still have no idea, and He will surpass any expectation or measure we create. She is a picture of His love for us, and we are so, so, SO thankful for the gift that is Winnie.

  • it’s the only photo we have of Winnie with her aunt Sallie because addiction is an evil that doesn’t give up, it’s a villain that won’t quit.
some people would say that Sallie lost her fight, but we know she won the ultimate battle and is celebrating 2 years in Heaven today.
we grieve everyday. it’s been 2 years without her and it’s been 2 years of missing her bottomless joy. but we are certain that joy is all over her face as she’s dancing with Jesus this morning. 🖤 #celebratingsallie
  • Who is ready for fall? 🍁 (aaaand everyone raises their hands 🙋🏼‍♀️😆) I took down Winnie's birthday decorations yesterday and immediately replaced them with all things pumpkin in my house. 🎃🙌🏻

I'm back to work this fall, and I've got some fun things to look forward to. 🍂 I spent the summer building a downloadable PDF of my photography course, and I'm excited to have that available soon - sign up for my newsletter for early access and special pricing (link in my profile). 📷👏🏻

We can’t believe that we’ve been living the best days of our lives for 2 years. Happy birthday to our girl, the most beautiful  and wonderful person I know. 🎈

  • I took the summer off from shooting - we have had so many fun things keeping us busy, and I wanted to keep my sanity (I don’t manage chaos well 🤪).
That being said, I’m officially getting back to work after Labor Day. My girl turns two in a week, so I’m ending my summer break with her birthday. 🎈
My fall mini sessions are happening in a little over a month, so if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s make it happen. (link is in my profile) 🍂
I haven’t been on Instagram for a few days (which shouldn’t really be noteworthy 😆), but there’s nothing new in my feed (thanks algorithm), so tell me what I’ve missed - what’s new with you?
  • photographs are how I will keep her little forever. 🖤 don’t settle for taking photos that are just “ok” - let’s chat about how you can bottle up time with your camera with images that you love. 📷 (link in my profile) #ohmywinnie
