Sweeney Family

Well it has taken me a whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile to get to this post…. (This is a theme these days –haha)

I am thankful that I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet family that we know through our school:

This family is so sweet and fun. I truly loved my time with you guys and am so happy with how these turned out. You guys are precious. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

So Glad It is Summer!!!

Our life has been very busy the last few months… We have put our house on the market, moved, and designed a new house (that will hopefully start construction TODAY) .And while doing that we had the normal extra “end of school year” activities. Have any of you read this:

If you haven’t, you totally should (if you are a mom of school aged kids). I could so relate, especially this year!!!

Anyway, I am trying to update this website and get to blogging again, because I simply love it. We have so much going on right now and I want to remember and share with you. So, I have been going through some of the photos that I have taken this past year and I came across this one:

I love it so much.

These guys are all cousins. Can’t you tell that they love each other? There is something special about cousins.

So I am hoping to get to blog more if time allows.

Priority is my kiddos. I love not having to wake them, and not say “hurry up” and “get this” and “get that” and “let’s go”…. What a sweet relief.

Let’s enjoy.

Happy Summer!

Sarah started taking a combination of Ballet and Jazz class this year.

It has seriously been the sweetest, cutest thang ever…

My girl has so surprised me. I really thought Jazz would be more her thing. Sarah is a very bouncy, twirly, busy, kind of girl. We had tried Ballet a couple years back and she just could not stay still long enough to learn 1rst, 2nd, 3rd, etc, etc, positon….

But this time it is very different. She “feels” the music. She acts the motions… Does that make sense? She gives Ballet a little added drama twist. And…

is very elegant in doing so…

Don’t you love it when they surprise you?

There are many sides to our Sarah…

She’s crazy and wild, yet so tender and sweet.

May she always be…

Amy, your photos always bring tears to my eyes. Sarah is indeed an elegant, beautiful young lady with a skip in her step that no one can match. What a joy she is!

Nana’s Pictures


Yes, I am still playing catch up…

But I can’t let these memories just pass without documentation….

I am a little bit nuts about my photos…

No one ever really wants to take them at the time….

But, I have yet to meet one person who wasn’t glad to have them once they get them…

Even my brother has a deep appreciate for these pictures and let me tell you…. He is worse than any child about the “family shoot”.

I love watching people see their photos for the first time….

They see these moments in time forever frozen…and their heart melts.

Moral of the story. Give the photographer in your family some respect…

You will forever be grateful. I promise.

And those that come after you will know a little bit about their history…

What’s the saying?

“You have to know where you come from to know where you are going?”

That could have some truth to it, I guess…

Either way, I just know these make me smile.
