/Letters to My Children/ September



I really can’t believe it, but tomorrow you will be ONE. Holy moly. Where did this past year go? It has been remarkable to watch you grow from this teeny tiny squish into a sweet, boisterous little boy.


Over the past few months your personality has really started to emerge and while I know I’m completely biased, you are one awesome kid. You are so stinkin’ sweet and funny and curious. You love nothing more than air drumming along to anything that even remotely sounds like music. I don’t know if you’re going to grow up to play an instrument, but you certainly love music – and that’s something your dad and I hope never changes.


You also love making a big ol’ mess. Whether it’s taking all the toys off the shelves or trying to get into Rocco’s food and water, it seems every time I turn around you’re surrounded by a mess – looking up at me and smiling big as can be. It’s a good thing you’re so cute!

I’m so honored to get this front row seat to your childhood… it’s pretty clear to everyone who meets you that you’re a special little guy. And while this milestone is a bit bittersweet for your sappy mama, it’s exciting to think about all the things this next year has in store for you. Walking, talking, climbing, chasing your sister around, and charming everyone with those huge blue eyes.



You light up my life, little boy of mine, and I feel blessed beyond belief that I get to be your mama – on your birthday and every day.


I encourage you to head over to my super talented friend Carrie’s blog (Seattle Family Photographer, YiLi Photography) to read her letter to her children.

Doing something a bit different this month… All of the previous month’s I’ve documented an entire day, so I’m switching it up and documenting a single moment this month. These are from the cabin over Labor Day weekend. Emma had been fishing with her little toy fishing pole for the past year and this trip she was ready to fish for real… I’m so so grateful I had my camera with me as this all unfolded!
