Amberly & Chris in Wright Park: Family Maternity Session

I recently shot my first photo session. Ever. I webt to Wright Park in Tacoma, WA, with my dear friend, Amberly, and her beautiful blended family: her son, her partner, Chris, and his two kids. The sixth member of their family is due any day now!
For the family session, I shot with an old school SLR camera, but supplemented with my iPhone 4S. Here are my favorites from the iPhone photos (I have yet to get the developped film back). By Erin

Phoebe Turns Two


I’m filled with joy. I’m filled with sadness when I think of time passing. I’m so happy; Matt and Phoebe fill me up in ways I could have never dreamed. I want to always be this happy. And part of being happy, I think, is not trying to hold onto happiness like a Thing, but to let go and let life pass through you. And sometimes you’ll be sad. And that’s ok. And it will pass. And sometimes you’ll be over the moon. And that’s ok. And it’s ok when it passes. But the JOY comes not from any one innocuous moment or feeling, but from Being OK no matter what comes to pass. So. On this birthday. I remind myself: there are joys unknown yet to come. And all thing that come must pass. And JOY lives eternal.


Birthday breakfast.


Lunch at Phoebe’s favorite spot: Shakbrah Java.


Juggler & painter & acrobats in the park!


She picked out a bouquet. Yellow roses? Girl’s got CLASS.


Impromptu mini party with family & close friends!


“How old are you Phoebe?”
“TWO!”

The joy of my heart

I find myself caught up in adorable moments, full of laughter and silliness; suddenly I realize my mind isn’t deep enough to bottle up each nuance of glee. Oh. There is so much happiness. And it passes through my fingers like water. And I know I shouldn’t try to capture it…I should embrace it and set it free. But that’s hard to do, because sometimes I’m so happy it makes me sad…sad because I wonder if I’ll ever be this happy again. ^_^ The Greater Truth is that we experience slices of heaven on earth, and there is fullness of joy to be found in God. My heart opens and closes, like a baby’s eyes open and close while waking from a dream. I still have fears to overcome, and my faith muscle still has growing to do. But…in the meantime…I’m grateful for these moments. My day is punctuated by smiles. And in this I find peace.By Erin

Outing after a Sick Week

I’ve been sick and stuck indoors for a week, so it was nice to get out and stretch my legs with my little lady today.


She carried this calico critter around in her pocket all day.


We made some new friends at the beach. They had a dog. Love this dog.

Meadowwood Farm in January

We took a trip today to Meadowwood Farm to buy some raw milk, but they were all out. So we visited the animals, instead.


Photos taken with my iPhone 4S.
Edited with the app “fotor, photo effect studio,” using the “Warm Green” filter.

December 20th: Baking, Friends & Movies

It was a full day…


Our babysitter, Allex, whom Phoebe loves.


We used this peanut bitter cookie recipe, with the suggestion in the comments to combine white, brown & powdered sugars.


(We went out to see reindeer with Stacy & Scout, but I didn’t get a picture of them because shy Phoebe was on my shoulders the whole time.)


The day wasn’t over yet! We came home and had a special after dinner treat: cookies & another Christmas movie!


xoxo
