It’s been a few days since I last posted, so I wanted to share a couple of goofy photos I collected while visiting at my Aunt Lila and her fiance Carter’s house. I enjoy being able to see the little trinkets people decorate their homes with, especially at Lila and Carter’s house.
Carter seems to enjoy small animals and dinosaurs with.. monster heads? Also small fuzzy goats. Not to mention that they seem to have an obsession with the Chupacabra, and like to spend time together drawing pictures of what it would be like to be him.
Hope you guys enjoy the photos
Christmas this year was a number of events all mashed together between two days.
Christmas eve started the festivities off at my mother’s parent’s house when, after work, all the aunts, uncles and cousins all head over to partake in dinner and present opening madness. The morning following (Christmas day in real time) starts off with Santa presents, laid out by the fireplace at home. Next to visit is my father’s parent’s house for breakfast and more partaking in presents. Then I went to Matt’s family’s house for 2nd breakfast and Santa gifts/family presents, leading into lunch with Matt’s grandparents. Finally, dinner back at home with all sides of my family, and Matt
Christmas was a little wild this year. All craziness aside though, it was very enjoyable, and I was able to capture a few memorable images from all of the places I visited throughout the holiday.
(There are two ways to enjoy Christmas, as shown above)

Last month, I was extremely excited when Cory and Kerilynn Cooke asked me to photograph their 4 week old son Jaxson. Of course I agreed. I went over to their apartment to capture him hanging out, doing what babies like to do (make happy little noises and stretch a lot).
Meeting baby Jaxson was a touching experience. I was amongst a family that just brought a new, tiny person into the world and it was very clear that Cory and Kerilynn couldn’t be more excited and in love with their son. It was definitely a beautiful encounter for me to share in.
Cory and Kerilynn : I’m so glad you guys had me come over to photograph your new family. You’re both awesome people, and are awesome parents. I can’t wait to see Jaxson growing up, and of course can’t wait to photograph him again whenever you want!
