Photographic Inspiration

I am beginning to plan out a new photoshoot with a some friends!  It’s been wayyyy too long, and I need to begin being more intentional about shooting on a regular basis for my portfolio.  Here are some images that I find inspiring from a few local photographers (Ericka McConnell, Stephanie Rausser, and Thayer Gowdy).  The date is set for March 28th and all parties are PUMPED.  Here are the beautiful photos by the lovely ladies mentioned above…

This kid. We had such a great day at the park today - he is becoming more and more adventurous, is coming out of his shell more every day, and is starting to try to figure out the social aspects of playing/communicating with other kids. He's just the best. #wildercobalt Wilder turned 16 months old today! I can't believe how big he is getting. He is so curious about every little thing, and has the sweetest personality and sense of humor. Of course his toddler tantrums are insane and overwhelming at times, but overall, the amazingness outweighs the tough parts, and I'm so thankful. ❤️ #wildercobalt This sweetie has been giving me a serious run for my money lately. Toddler tantrums in full swing, and without the language skills to even tell me what's wrong, it really complicates things. Even with all that, his sweet giggles, funny games, and new skills/words he acquires daily cancel it all out. Playing with him and kissing those cute little cheeks make every day amazing. 😍 #wildercobalt Wilder's first tattoo was...a success...? He was so squirmy when I was putting it on him, and he ripped it off too quick, so only about 1/3 of the palm tree wearing sunglasses made it. Oh well. He likes it. 😎🌴 #wildercobalt Today Wilder had his first swimming lesson. It wasn't quite as I had envisioned it...he screamed and cried basically the entire time. 🙈 I've heard that's not abnormal, but I somehow thought we would be different... #yeahright #wildercobalt Today on the way to his 15 month appointment at the pediatrician, he dumped all his water on his lap, totally soaking his shorts (& carseat). 😂 So, pantsless it was! #wildercobalt #15months Last weekend, Wilder turned 15 months old. How in the world is he already 15 months?! He is so curious and loves exploring everything and examining every little detail to see how things work. He is such a sweet-hearted guy. I'm lucky to spend my days with him. ❤️ #wildercobalt My dearest Wilder, how are you already 14.5 months old? You are growing every day, every moment, before my very eyes. You are becoming a human I am so proud of - sweet, funny, loving, determined, observant, adventurous. Last night you were having a hard time sleeping, so I sat with you in my arms for a while. You fell asleep hard on my shoulder, and I could feel your heart beating with mine, the weight of your body getting heavier and heavier, and your breath slowing as you fell deeper into dreamland. In that moment I felt more connected to you than ever before, and I felt deep in my bones and in a soul-wrenching way the complete blessing that you are. On good days and on bad, I am your momma, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was made for you. I love you to the moon and back, little bug. #wildercobalt Happy Easter, y'all! 🐣🐰💐 #wildercobalt Another from the wedding yesterday:
Just taking a quick break from all the playing, dancing and eating!
