Haylee Marie at Two!!!

Haylee Marie turned 2 this past Sunday, however we celebrated with a big Princess Jasmine birthday bash on Saturday with all her family and friends. Haylee calls her Pancess Jamine haha. It was the perfect weather! We had a little breeze which was nice while the kids ran around the yard. Haylee shared all her bicycle, power wheels, car, and wagon with her friends. They had a fantastic time playing with bubbles and water guns too. The water guns were the perfect idea for the weather and kids!!

I will say it so many times, but here goes one more! She is growing up so fast!!! I get emotional thinking of how it felt like yesterday we brought her home, cut the hospital bracelets off her tiny wrists and how full of joy she has brought us since that moment we laid eyes on her in the hospital room at 11:34pm. There is no greater feeling. I am a little sad she is another year older, however I fill so much happiness and blessed we are celebrating her 2nd birthday. It's truly the best!

She had the best birthday with all her family and friends. She ran around laughing and playing with her little friends. I'm so blessed they were here to celebrate with her!! (Thank you so much for coming) It brought me so many smiles watching all of the kids playing with her on her birthday. One of her special friends Princess Jasmine stopped by the party to wish her a happy birthday!!! (AKA Auntie Emily LOL) Thanks so much Emily and Mala for helping make our little one's birthday so special.  

Thank you to all of our family and friends for coming to celebrate! Thanks for everyone's birthday messages!

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Charlotte NC Engagement- Maurice + KaShara

Although we had overcast weather and it was in the 60s, this engagement session turned out to be the best! There wasn't any wind and these two are wonderful! Souwan, Haylee and I drove out to the Noda area of Charlotte to meet with Maurice and KaShara at Amelie's. I had a wonderful time getting to know all about the two of them and details about their upcoming fall wedding. As soon as KaShara and Maurice walked in with huge smiles and hugs, I knew this was going to be a great couple to work with! I have known Maurice since college and was so thrilled that they reached out to me on Instagram. I easily fell in love with KaShara and just knew this is a match! We went out to Noda and our old college stomping ground Frazier Park behind Johnson & Wales. Noda is filled with really great places to photograph from all the beautiful buildings and the artistic work! Frazier Park brought back memories for all of us! They have the cutest furbabies who they used to bring to Frazier. I l…
