Ayres Family Reunion 2010

I had the wonderful pleasure of being asked back to shoot the family reunion of this wonderful family. I might add that they are quite a large family too. This year I saw many faces that I met back in 2007 and I met some newer additions! We had a wonderful time time in Springwater Park taking advantage of the gorgeous scenery.

I really can't believe how much some of these kids have changed, some were one years old, one was still in mommy's tummy and now she has a little brother no less! Some were still babies themselves and some have just grown right up in such nice young adults. It's crazy sessions like this every three years that make me love what I do and being able to capture them again and again. I can't wait for the next one, 2014 I think. Cannot wait. I wonder how everyone will have changed.

school daze

Yesterday was a long whirlwind of a day, Ian had a good day at the new school. My day went relatively well all things considering. Somehow, he went into Grade 3. I still remember JK like it was yesterday and before I know it, it will be high school then college. POOF he's all grown up.

It was bittersweet yesterday not being there to see him off to school for the first time ever, not taking the photos myself. However I made up for it with some fun in the back yard when we got home... see shot on Jeep ;) But yesterday I drove my son to school. On a bus. A school bus. My new part time job that lets me be home with my boys and do photography. It's not a job really, it's easy and so far rewarding. I haven't felt this good about a job in a long time. 99.9% of it is hearing Jake squeal when he sees Ian, and when I see that beaming smile as he bounds up the steps of the bus with a Hi Momma.

Today was the first day back to school. It was adventurous that's for sure! Ian went to a new school today, Jake rode the bus with him, and well, that's me the driver.

I'll post some more photos from the first day :)

hurray for the everyday

Inspired by Ali Edwards blog post today, and of course the Ikea Catalog. So hurray for the everyday.
Hurray for a Grande Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel that brightened my mood today with each sip.
Hurray for a napping baby, especially an extra long baby nap.
Hurray for a short work day.
Hurray for helping hands so I can get a little more done today.
Hurray for scents, like that of my apple cinnamon candle I smell now. Ahhhhh, fall.
Hurray for the everyday.
