pumpkin pickin' 2017

Our annual pumpkin picking trip! This year we didn't go to Patterson Farm. While i'm a bit bummed, it was jus a super busy time and so we went some place close to home. The Variety Produce place is a local farmer's store and really has a lot of charm! We were able to experience a fun time picking our pumpkins and painting them! This was Haylee's first year painting the pumpkin and decorating it. She truly enjoyed the whole entire experience of picking her pumpkins and decorating/painting it. When she picked the right pumpkin she held it all the way to the car and home! This was very different from our past pumpkin picking trip because she seemed to really get into the spirit of it all. She's growing up ahhh! The painting got a little messy. She decided to mix all her colors together and wanted to use her hands instead of the brushes. Haylee was anxious to put the "face" stickers on her pumpkin, however after the "face" was on she felt it was complete and moved on to something else. Ahh she's still my 2 year old. The little girl who enjoys making a mess and is so fidgety for my camera. And do you see the Minnie hat? She wanted to pose with her Minnie hat, that was a must photo. 

Hope you enjoy our photos!

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…
