Unfortunately, 6 months at home led to a rough start back to the hardest school year yet. I love that my baby just wants to be with her mom, dad and sister more than anything. But that created some challenges getting back to school and other activities. As we enter this 8th year of her life, she has made some major strides and has learned some very valuable lessons that I hope she carries with her throughout life.

Focus on the positive. Be grateful. Never say you can't.

When Lola was faced with a challenge last week, my heart about exploded when I heard her say to herself,

"I think I can do it....no, I KNOW I can do it!"


Peace out 7! Bring on 8!

Happy birthday, LoJo! (Don't worry, you'll always be my baby!!)

Double Digits https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2020/7/double-digits We are ten! I am trying not to be sentimental today (like where did my baby go!!) but instead feel thankful/grateful/blessed beyond belief that we have a creative, funny, strong-willed, talented, kind ten-year-old young woman in our presence. She made me a mom, and she makes me so proud.

As women and girls, we too often find flaws in the way God made us. If you're short you wish to be tall; and the tall girls wish they were shorter. We want what we don't have. My little girl was blessed with a TON of hair, yet she wishes it were different. So I wanted to show her just how amazing all of those locks are with a "big hair don't care" birthday photoshoot. Let's celebrate our differences and what makes us unique!

Happy 10th birthday to my one-of-a-kind young lady! We love you more than words can say!

Warrior Women https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2020/6/warrior-women "There is no greater warrior than a mother protecting her child. "   -N. K. Jemisin

Mothers have it tough sometimes, am I right? We carry the emotional burdens of our children heavily on our hearts.  When they hurt, our hurt is ten fold. And yet we are the ones who have been chosen in this life to have the gift of making it "all better" for our little ones. We are blessed beyond belief to take on this role, but we were never given instructions on how to do it. We must wear all 100 hats well, juggle 100 balls without dropping one, and do it all while raising our children to become strong, kind humans.

I have only known Becky for a couple of years, but from the first day I met her, it was apparent that she was one heck of a woman. When her baby Luna was almost two years old, she was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, an eye cancer, which led her to lose her left eye. She continues to fight for her baby's health still, while taking care of her family and being a working mother. Becky is strong. She is positive. She is loving. She is fierce. She is everything it takes in a mother to raise strong, kind humans.

Photoshoots like this are what I live for. I wanted to give this mama bear timeless portraits of her and her girls. I wanted to give big sis, the silent warrior and good sport, some much needed princess recognition! And I wanted to document little miss Luna (Becky's "Moon-child") and her sweetness, her beauty and her unphased spirit.

The glass is always half full in this family.

Facts about retinoblastoma: 

▪︎Retinoblastoma is a cancer of the retina, a light-sensitive layer of tissue in the eye. It is the most common type of eye cancer in children. It accounts for about 2% of all childhood cancers. Still, it is rare overall. Only about 200 to 300 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma each year in the United States.

•THE GLOW. This is the most common early sign of retinoblastoma. Normally when you shine a light in the eye, the pupil (the dark spot in the center of the eye) looks red because of the blood vessels in the back of the eye. In an eye with retinoblastoma, the pupil often appears white or pink instead, which is known as a white pupillary reflex (or leukocoria). A parent might notice this white glare after a flash photograph is taken, especially if the pupils are different colors. It also might be noted by the child’s doctor during a routine eye exam. Other symptoms, lazy eye, eye pain, vision problems, redness in the eye, a pupil that doesn't get smaller when exposed to bright light.

•About 3 out of 4 children with retinoblastoma have a tumor in only one eye (known as unilateral retinoblastoma). In about 1 case in 4, both eyes are affected (known as bilateral retinoblastoma).

▪︎25% to 40% of retinoblastoma cases are hereditary. In these cases, the patient has a mutation in a tumor suppressor gene known as RB1. This mutation is found in the DNA in every cell of the patient’s body. It is usually inherited from a parent, but it also can be a new mutation that starts with the patient. In both cases, this form of the disease can be passed down to the next generation. This type of retinoblastoma usually develops before age one.

▪︎Retinoblastoma occurs about equally in boys and girls and in different races and ethnicities. It also occurs equally in the right or left eye. Overall, more than 9 out of 10 children in the United States with retinoblastoma are cured, but the prognosis is less promising if the cancer has spread outside of the eye.

7, Here She Comes! https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2020/2/lola-is-7 I've just realized that my once active blog has simply turned into a way to document my children's milestones. And I'm ok with that. It'll be fun to look back and read about the girls. Of course, it'll get more and more challenging coming up with photoshoot ideas for each birthday –– and what more can be said that hasn't been said already? Well, at least it'll be difficult coming up with new material for my older daughter, Harper. She loves dance, dance and more dance! But Lola, my 7-year-old baby, is the complete opposite of her big sis in so many ways.

She loves everything. She wants to try everything.

So for this year's birthday blog, I'm documenting what Lola loves best –– at least at this point in her life.

This year she has been introduced to basketball. Although she dances (and, out of convenience, I would've loved for her to only dance just like her sister), I shouldn't be surprised that she wants to pick up the one sport that made both of her parents absolute legends.

SO KIDDING!!!! We were average.

Little Miss Lola, on the other hand, could be pretty dang good with that spunky spirit!

We just need to get her to stop doing hip-hop moves down the court after scoring a basket. ;)

The next of Lola's favorite things is her sister. Although she would never admit it, she looks up to her big sis in the most precious way. Nothing is better then watching them crack each other up, have dance parties around the house, and engage in imaginative play for hours.

I adore this photo of the girls side by side. Sometimes I can't tell them apart when I glance at a photo of one of them. However, I see so many differences here...just like their personalities.


Speaking of her sister, Lola LOVES to make Harper laugh. Like belly-laugh laugh. Lola is so goofy. She's an entertainer, and this didn't just recently start. When she was a baby, we would say she was like a tiny royal jester. And so it continues. 

 

I see the performer in Lola. She doesn't take herself too seriously. She ALWAYS dances "like no one is watching."

I wish I could be more like Lola in that respect.


One last thing: our girl loves to read. This is a pleasant surprise to me because I've never been a big reader. Also, thanks to a major parent-fail on our part, we sort of "forgot" to work with Lola (our second child) on letters at a young age. So at her first pre-k parent/teacher conference at age 4, we were told she only knew the letters L, O, A, and X, and it hit us that we should've been working with her all along like we had done for our firstborn! Once we put in an effort on our end, we realized how dang smart this kid is.

She caught up quickly and then some. And now she asks for chapter books as gifts!


Happy 7th birthday, you dancing, goofy, sporty, smarty-pants girl! We love you more than words can say!!!

Last of the Single Digit Years https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2019/7/last-of-the-single-digit-years Nine years just went by and we have a young lady on our hands. Although she looks and acts much older than she is, there are still glimpses of that young innocent little girl that gave us all of our parenting firsts. She still listens in when I read her younger sister a bedtime story. She still lets me hold her hand for a minute when walking through a parking lot before her big girl self becomes self-conscious of it. She still responds to a nickname she received as a baby, Tootsie. She still loves to cuddle before bed. She still belly laughs at her silly sister. And every now and then, I still try to see if I can pick her up (and I still can), because one day will sadly be the last.

She has grown into a true leader. I am so inspired by her passion for the art of dance. Although I feel it may be speeding up time being so involved, it has created a happiness in our lives that can't be replaced. I will take all the busy days any day if it means our girl will grow up learning responsibility, teamwork and how to grind. I just need to be mindful of all of the little in-between moments every day of this last single-digit year and every whirlwind year thereafter. Happy birthday, big girl! We love you to the stars and back!

You'll Always Be My Baby https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2019/2/youll-always-be-my-baby I don't know when my baby went through six years of life, but here we are; and I am trying to not to be sentimental today but enjoy this little one's happiness, health and love for life! She chose to do her "six year photoshoot" while we were at the most magical place on earth a couple of weeks ago, Disney World. So although we don't have a baby or a toddler anymore, we still have the innocence, imagination and magic of Lola's vibrant childhood. Her excitement for things is contagious and I hope she never loses that. 

Happy 6th birthday you sweet and happy thing!

Eights Years In https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2018/7/harper Eight years ago my first child was born. It was a girl and we named her Harper.

When our second daughter was born a few years later, we knew we were in store for a life of Barbie dolls and hair bows, with maybe some dress up and makeup along the way. We pictured them growing tall like their parents and playing volleyball or basketball.

One of my very talented cousins had been in dance for much of her childhood and she begged me to make dancers out of our little girls someday. I hate to admit this now, but I pretty much laughed in her face. There was no way, in my mind, that our girls would dance. If they turn out anything like their mom and dad, they'll be sporty and graceless! Nonetheless, we did put our toddlers into the cute "baby ballerina" classes for our own entertainment. During the first recital, although it was adorable, I felt very out of my element. How could I ever fit in with the dance moms? 

Then when Harper was 6 she was in a ballet number that blew my mind. It wasn't exceptionally difficult or anything. What impressed me the most was that she was front and center and smiling with confidence. Now let me say that all we'd ever known of this child was that she was an introvert. She cried at every birthday party to date when people sang "Happy Birthday" to her! However, to see her fearless, self-assured and actually GRACEFUL made me rethink this whole dance thing!

At 8 years into her young life, she's found the one thing she wants to do, and LOVES to do. I wish I had LOVED anything as a child the way she loves to dance. She comes home from 4 hours of dance class and dances with her sister until bedtime! There are not a lot of things I've experienced as a mother that give me as much joy as watching my girls dance. I'm officially a dance mom and couldn't be more proud! I cannot wait for our family to continue on this new, beautiful path.

Happy 8th birthday to my first baby. Keep following your heart my love!

It's not that often that toddlers follow my direction and show affection for the newborn baby that just entered into their world. But just look at how gorgeous all of these girls are, and the love flowing out of them is just as precious as can be.

My Baby is 5! https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2018/2/my-baby-is-5 My baby is 5 today.

When she was born, the nurses called her "Barracuda Baby" because she ate constantly.

That hasn't really changed!

We heard that a shop called LOLA Boutique was named so because it stood for:

"Laugh Often Love Always".

This set the stage for the happiness that this child not only exudes but creates!

Her cheeks have been one of the highlights of my life! And now she is obsessed with other baby's cheeks!

She asks, "Mom, can I chunk his cheeks?"

(What have I created!?)

Teething brought a brutal two years!

My sister (her dark haired twin), talked me into cutting some blunt bangs when she was one. And it more than worked!

She is loving and affectionate.

She is passionate and thoughtful! 

She is a very unique character! She is the kid that when you come home from work or pick her up from school, she runs to you smiling and leaps into your arms! 

And she definitely brings some drama to many situations! (Lord help me!) 

Today my baby is 5.

As my baby, I want to hold her forever, squeeze her with all my might, and protect her.

But all she wants to do is fly!

Happy birthday to my happiest baby angel!!

But when a family has waited, longer than they thought possible, it becomes so much more than joy. It is thankfulness; disbelief; jubilation; and ultimately, some much deserving peace.

Prayers have been answered for this precious family. Kylie Reese has arrived.

Kristen you are a fighter. You are special. You are everything that a daughter could be lucky enough to have in a role model.

May God bless your family of four.

LESSONS | WICHITA KS CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2017/6/lessons-wichita-ks-child-photographer-jasmin-rupp-photography How to Talk To Your Daughter About Her Body

Eighteen Summers: It's All We Get

The Only Thing I Didn't Give My Kids Is the One Thing They Needed the Most


 

The three articles listed above are some of the most memorable lessons I have learned so far as a mother. They hit home.

I wish I had read the last two sooner.

I am your typical "stressed out", "stretch yourself too thin", "when am I ever going to get a break" mom.

The last night of first grade when putting my almost-7-year-old to bed, she asked if I was going to continue working this summer. The answer was yes. Her response was "yessssssss". Shocked, I asked why. She said because you're bossy and mean.

As if that weren't enough, I then went to lay in bed, defeated, the victim attitude, and read a mom blog called "The Only Thing I Didn't Give my Kids Is the One Thing They Needed Most". I bawled to my husband that night. Sad that my oldest daughter is to the point where she doesn't like hanging out with me. Sad that my 4-year-old baby won't let me kiss her chubby cheeks anymore.

What was the world coming to??? I thought I was having a midlife crisis. 

I vowed that night that I would try my best to be patient and sweet in my communications with my children, and enjoy every moment of motherhood, even in my times of utmost frustration.

That was a tall order and I've caught myself a few times going back to my old ways. But the point is that I see the difference in myself and I am able to control it better now.

And the difference in my oldest child is undeniable. You could see the happiness in her face when we were around each other come back immediately. Her mood completely reflected my own, which I've always known but never truly realized the impact.

She, my unaffectionate one, was affectionate.

One week into her 7th summer and we are feeling fulfilled.


My big girl Harper is turning 7 this summer. I remember being at an age when 7 seemed so old and cool.

She has all of a sudden reached an age when the influences of her peers is seeping into our doors. Therefore it is refreshing to still see her own sweet, funny, inquisitive personality emerge through it all.

The lessons we repeat over and over to her is that beauty is on the inside, never give up and be kind.

We also teach her to be thankful by doing "gratitudes" daily as a family.


My tiny little Lola Jo is 4, although 2 is stuck in my head for some reason.

It is so fun seeing her grow into her own person: the entertainer, the lover, the unbridled spirit.

She copies her sister's every move, she still adores her mommy and daddy, and she eats 24/7.

Her little lisp is irresistible to me, as are her chubby cheeks.


Thank you God for these two little lights.

Her warm smile, big blue eyes and of course a world of fun!

Enjoy and happy Memorial Day and SUMMER!!!

CLARA | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY | WICHITA, KS https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2017/2/clara-jasmin-rupp-photography-wichita-ks The moment I picked up baby Clara out of her carseat, I knew I had a fighter on my hands! At three weeks old, she was strong. She was alert.

Did I mention strong?

Clara wasn't going to make any of her photoshoot easy for us! I say us because at one point it took me and her mommy about twenty minutes with our hands on her trying to get her into a deep sleep. Although she fought us every step of the way, I told Clara we were going to win.

And we did!

Clara is a special one. She has been adopted into a most loving family. She is one of them now.

It warms my heart that I was able to capture some of Clara's first photos. Her beauty is obvious. She is easy to make into art.

 

May you always be a fighter, Clara.

All Grown Up | Wichita, KS Photographer | Jasmin Rupp Photography https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/11/all-grown-up-wichita-ks-photographer-jasmin-rupp-photography My calling as a photographer began long, long ago before I even knew it.

I have the prettiest little cousins and loved photographing them throughout their childhoods.  One day I took a cheap old camera and took some black and white shots of my baby cousin, Maddie at age 3.

I remember being so amazed at her beauty! Those eyes!!

 

So I must admit that I got pretty excited planning for her senior photoshoot which we decided to do at the prettiest place around, the Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine, KS.  

The Arb, but mostly Maddie, did not disappoint.  Such a true beauty she is!

 

 

 

And then as we were driving home, we spotted an abandoned dirt road with the most perfect light imaginable!  We whipped the car around in a spontaneous moment and parked. 

 

 

For those who know Maddie, they are well aware of how talented she is as a dancer. Since childhood, her life has always been dance, dance, dance.  Therefore this next shot means everything to me...to capture her doing what she's always loved in such a beautiful setting. Perfection.

 

 

 

Congratulations baby cousin ... The future is looking pretty bright for you!

COLLINS | NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER WICHITA KANSAS | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/8/collins-newborn-photographer-wichita-kansas-jasmin-rupp-photography As some of you have noticed, I've been a little MIA lately.

This summer was our busiest yet and I wanted to spend as much time with my own babies as possible.

It felt like it had been forever since I photographed a newborn, when in fact it was just a month ago! When a break like this happens, it is easy to forget why I adore photographing newborns. This Wednesday afternoon I had a great reminder of that. Of course, it helps when I am given a "perfect 10" for a model. Baby Collins came to me at about 9 days old. I couldn't get over how gorgeous she was. I laid her down to pose her in a position with which I typically start. For the first time ever, I had a newborn pose her own face on her perfectly laid hand. At that moment, I knew we were going to have a "perfect" session and we most certainly did!

BLESSINGS OF SUMMER | NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/5/blessings-of-summer Have you ever heard the quote, "Babies smile in their sleep because they're listening to the whispering of angels?"

When baby Summer was 5 months in utero, her dad, Aaron, put his hand on her mom's tummy and Summer gave him a little nudge. He felt her for the first time. The next day, for a reason only God knows, Aaron lost his life in an unforeseen accident. 

Then began his safekeeping, guidance and love from afar.

This little girl is an especially blessed one.  She's got a warrior of a mom, an army of love and support from friends and family, and most importantly a guardian that is second to none.  

Summer came to see me when she was just 6 days new.  

I had the honor of incorporating sentimental objects into her first photo shoot. 

Here she is lying in her great-grandfather's crate imprinted with a bow hunter, a sport that her dad enjoyed.

Summer clung tightly to a necklace of her daddy's fingerprint, which her mom wears around her neck.

One of the more touching moments for me was seeing Summer snuggled in with her dad's shirts. The one encircling her was one of Aaron's favorites. During our session, there was a moment when she started to fuss until I laid her here. She settled right in perfectly, as if he was wrapping his arms around her.  

Summer's dad was a hunter and he died doing what he loved. This was a very meaningful image of his first deer and his baby girl. 

I know that Summer will bless this family in unimaginable ways. 

"A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities." - Eda J. Le Shan

She is the rainbow after the storm.

Blessings to Amber, Summer and their families...

(Lol!) I love this first sibling shot and how tiny Kolson is compared to his biggest brother. I love getting to know all of these amazing families.  

I love this job.

Oh and she was just under 6 pounds when these were shot!

​And a big shout out to big sis, Remy, who is only 26 months old! I can't remember the last sibling under age 3 that cooperated perfectly.

I'm just loving these too sisters!!

QUINN ONE YEAR MILESTONE | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY | WICHITA KANSAS BABY PHOTOGRAPHER https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/2/quinn-one-year-milestone-jasmin-rupp-photography-wichita-kansas-baby-photographer It was one year ago that I recall planning for Quinn’s newborn session. With any family, I like to find out what they want and don’t want to include in their baby’s first photoshoot. It was then that Quinn’s very special mama touched my life. She informed me that just a year prior, they had lost their precious 2-year-old Blair to an E. Coli infection. She also said that she would like to incorporate Blair's newborn picture, along with their 5-year-old daughter, Paige's newborn picture. At that point, I was just amazed that she had chosen me for this task. The day arrived when I got to meet baby Quinn and her mom, Megan. Being moved by their loss and feeling the deepest sympathy for days, I have to admit I was pretty nervous and didn’t quite know what to expect. As Megan approached, she had a big warm smile on her face, excited for the day with her newest baby. This put me at ease instantly and I realized what a special gift little Quinn was to this special family ... like a rainbow after the storm.

 

She came back to me 6 months later with baby rolls upon baby rolls of pure joy. 

 

 

I just recently got to see this sweet baby again for Quinn’s 1-year milestone session. 

 

I am reminded each time what a true pleasure it is to spend time with Megan and Quinn. To see someone who had the unfathomable happen to them come away with an appreciation for life and a contagious smile on her face is extraordinary. I have learned a lot from Megan, a true inspiration. The whole "live each moment" thing never quite meant so much.

 

Stop dwelling on the bad. Life is too short. Focus on and appreciate all the good instead. It is all around us.

THE MARTINS | NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER WICHITA KANSAS | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/2/the-martins-newborn-photographer-wichita-kansas-jasmin-rupp-photography Courtnee and I have been great friends since we were ten years old. We ended up in the same dental school class where I met her other half, Blake. For much of those four years, we were the three amigos (or I was the third wheel whichever way you want to look at it! Haha!) I feel like I can say that this couple was the starting point for my photography career when they asked me to do their engagement photos. Then ten years later was our next photo shoot, when Courtnee was pregnant with her first baby.

We've gone from this ten years ago.....

 

to this two months ago...

....and these....

 

It's always been Courtnee and Blake, party of two.

So to see them becoming a party of three and mesmerized by this new little man in their lives is so special to witness. 

 

Greyson Robert was born on January 31, 2016 weighing in at 9.1 pounds and 22 inches.

I love him to pieces already and cannot wait to capture many more precious moments in his life.  

He is dapper like his daddy! 

He's so squishy and cuddly!

And he might be a Texan at heart!!

Greyson, with the parents that you have, you are destined for greatness and love beyond words.

As a newborn photographer, you never know when you're going to have a sleeper or not. Yes, all newborns are sleepers at home; but every now and then some babies just will not pass out completely for their photo shoot.  David did give me a couple of moments of good sleep where he let me pose him, but other than that, his beautiful big eyes were open! Check him out - from his sleepy stillness to his alert eye contact!  I can't decide which is more precious!

WYATT THE WARRIOR | WICHITA KANSAS BABY PHOTOGRAPHER | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/1/wyatt-the-warrior It had been six years since this family had welcomed their last baby...thinking he would be their last. Afterall, they had three beautiful healthy grown kiddos! Then one day they got a shocking surprise...they were pregnant. Excited and stunned, what they didn't know was that this pregnancy was about to take them on the ride of their lives.

Baby Wyatt was born at 27 weeks weighing in at 3 pounds. He spent some time in the NICU on a ventilator with chest tube for 3 days. They actually almost lost him at 4 days old. Then he recovered, grew stronger each day, and at 48 days new was released and able to go home.

This little guy has earned the title "warrior." When he showed up for his first ever photo shoot, I was taken aback. Not only was he a good sized 9 month old baby, but his face just lit up the room. I am honored that I got to capture some of the first portraits of this beautiful child.

Here's Wyatt.

MY THREE-YEAR-OLD BABY | WICHITA KANSAS CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER | JASMIN RUPP PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/1/my-three-year-old-baby They say the youngest child is the outgoing, attention-seeking rebel....clown...performer.

Lola Jo was born three years ago. We thought her laid-back baby personality would translate to toddlerhood. However, when you have a rule-following, type-A older sis to compete with....you gotta push that personality through somehow!  

In those three years, she's earned the titles "Bruiser", "Royal Jester" (by her sister) and most frequently "Stinker!" She challenges us everyday but makes us laugh one hundred times a day. Her spirit shines wherever she goes and with whomever she meets.

Happy birthday, Lo, you funny girl. We love you.

Baby Jude https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/1/baby-jude I would like to dedicate this blog to all the chubby-cheeked newborn babies out there!! Lol! I mean, most babies tend to grow some rather awesome chub on and around their faces at around 6 months of age. However, when a baby comes out of the womb with fat cheeks....now that is something else, and my heart just melts. Precious Jude entered the world at 9 pounds 7 ounces and he couldn't be more perfect.

Just see for yourself!!

Cash https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2016/1/cash Cash is a very special little boy and the best Christmas present this family could have asked for. He was adopted just days before Christmas, and his older siblings had no idea this was coming! I can't even imagine getting a surprise like this as a child! How amazing!

Let me tell you....these children absolutely ADORE their new baby brother!

Congratulations to the Roberts family!

Baby Ben https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/12/baby-ben It has been a while since I posted a blog. Not only was November and December the busiest months of the year, but I haven't had a newborn to blog about in a few weeks. I lucked out in getting to photograph Ben as my last newborn of the year! He wanted to eat at the beginning and then he was out cold the rest of the session...just the way I like 'em! Three smiles and the prettiest lips I've seen made this one successful shoot!

Merry Christmas to the May family!

My Fall Babies https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/11/my-fall-babies In my mind, this photoshoot was going to be a breeze with all the fall leaves, sunset lighting, coordinating outfits and a brand new lens! I just knew my girls would follow my directions because they are used to their mom snapping photos of them. We got to the location and right away I got this one priceless shot of them together looking like perfect angels...

Child Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita KansasChild Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita KansasChild Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas

I should've known that that behavior was going to be short lived. The rest of the time was pure chaos. Chasing Lola wore me out. My bribes no longer worked to get them to sit still! I was frustrated.

However, because of that evening, I've learned my lesson to let go of expecting perfect poses, because capturing the fun of childhood is just as beautiful, if not more so.

And in fact, the results were just perfect!

Beau and Aria https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/11/beau-and-aria Beau and Aria were the first twins I've had in over two years, and let me say, I was nervous for this session! Shooting just one newborn is a challenge, so I didn't quite know what to expect. The afternoon arrived, and sure enough when one was asleep and ready to pose, the other was wide awake. They went back and forth like this for most of the session, however, they did give us little opportunities here and there to get a shot or two in different setups. Finally at the end we went for our most anticipated baking-themed set, as Beau and Aria's family own a local restaurant and bakery called La Galette. I thought there would be no way that we could accomplish this, as the particular pose needed was one of my most challenging and knowing their sleep patterns thus far hadn't been ideal. However, the stars aligned in that moment. It was the first time they both were in deep sleeps, and they fell right into position.

In hindsight, it was the perfect session...with all of its ups and downs!

Millie and Family https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/10/millie-and-family Chris, Katie, and Teddy had the pleasure last week of welcoming Millie Rose into their family. The best part was that they didn't know that she was going to be a she. My most heartfelt congratulations go out this family who I know are overwhelmed with joy!

The Toys have been good friends of ours for a while now, and we always tease them because Teddy is the calm to our little Lola's storm. Therefore, when we heard that Millie had arrived, we had a feeling that she might possibly be the opposite temperament that her older brother has always been. Within my few hours in their home for a lifestyle session, I could tell we nailed it on the head. Miss Millie Rose chose to sleep for a total of about 5 minutes for the entire photoshoot. She knew what she wanted when she wanted it, and she was not about to let some photographer change that! Nevertheless, beautiful moments were captured of this girl with gusto. Can't wait to watch this little one grow!

Meet Millie Rose.

Joelle Newborn https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/10/joelle-newborn It was awesome meeting these first time parents and their little girl. Joelle was a doll with the most adorable little whines I've ever heard. She did so well at her session, but was sure to let me know if she didn't like something. (the little stinker!) She probably learned a little something having spent some time in the hospital upon arrival. Luckily, this little girl is out and perfect as can be!

Here's to my newest family of 3!

That was perfectly fine with me as it gave me the freedom to get creative with lots of other beautiful colors.

Emi, as she will be nicknamed, was sweet as can be and completely rocked her newborn session! Check out this little beauty!

Kauai https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/9/kauai I may have never seen Europe or Africa or even the Grand Canyon. But I have seen Kauai.

Just 4 weeks ago, my sister, Shae, who lives in Denver called me to say she had to go to Kauai for a work trip and asked if I wanted to join her. Neither of us had been to Hawaii and it seemed tempting but of course my initial reaction was, "never gonna happen." I then called my dear friend Jes, who grew up on Oahu and asked two things: #1 "is this unrealistic to even consider," and #2 "do you want to go?" 

Thanks to our wonderful husbands, Shae's boss, and some amazing people from work, we booked our trip.

As the vacation drew near, I dreaded the flight and the 5 hour time change. I wasn't sure if it would be worth it, but I was excited nonetheless to be able to experience this with my sister and to do it all with a once-local to show us the ropes. It was the most spontaneous thing we had ever done.

The trip there surprisingly wasn't that bad at all.

Around noon on Tuesday, we checked into the Kauai Marriott in Lihue, which was a gorgeous resort. We hung out relaxing there that first day. 

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

Then on Wednesday, the whirlwind of non-stop adventures began. Everyone told us, "why even bother to go for just 4 1/2 days", but in that amount of time we were able to travel around the entire island either by car or boat. We were quite impressed with ourselves. That first full day there, Jes and I went site seeing while Shae worked. Our first stop was Wailua Falls.

 

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

To grasp the enormity of this waterfall, in this second picture, try to spot the little white bird in the center of the photo. That was a large seagull next to the heaviest cascade of water I have ever seen. Kauai has the rainiest spot on earth, which would explain the constantly immense amount of water flowing down multiple mountainsides.

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

We then drove on to see the Keahua Arboretum. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

We happened to stumble upon this little lush haven....Kamokila Hawaiian Village. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

I decided to try my hand at paddle boarding. It may have only been for a couple of minutes around the dock, but at least I can say I've done it!

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

We opted NOT to stay and kayak there and instead signed up to go on Saturday when Shae isn't working on a self-guided kayak tour up the river, then hike to the Secret Falls.

That night, we drove to Poipu to eat dinner at the Beach House. We stopped to see the infamous blow hole, Spouting Horn, on the South shore. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

Before dinner we had to have a "Shave Ice", a favorite in the islands. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

And then at dinner, this was our view. Not bad. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

Did I mention that just the driving around the island made the trip worthwhile. I had never seen trees as tall as Kauai's. They just towered like walls to Heaven on both sides of the road. Unfortunately, the pictures do not do it justice, but we tried our best to capture the beauty.

Shae had gone on a helicopter tour before we arrived on Tuesday, and she heard that Kauai is 97% uninhabited land. Here are a couple from her cell phone that she got when flying over the Napali Coast.  Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

So if you're not looking at the gorgeous blue ocean, you are looking at the steepest mountains, or the greenest valleys, or the tallest trees. In fact, Kauai has more beaches, rivers, streams, and waterfalls than any of the other Hawaiian islands. There is so much beauty here.

Thursday night we headed north for dinner but first stopped to see the Kilauea Lighthouse. Walking up to it you say "wow" about ten times, louder each time, the closer you get to the lookout point.

This is what the drive away from the lighthouse looked like. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

We had to eat at the St. Regis Hotel because everyone said it was a site to see. Here was our view at dinner on the terrace.

Friday morning, Jes and I ventured onto a 6-man speedboat tour for 5 hours up the Napali Coast. The company we used was the Na Pali Experience and we highly recommend them! The entire way up the coast, there was a rainbow to our backs.  Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

It took about an hour to get around the military base. But when we did, this was our first view at sunrise. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

And then this...  Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

Majestic and mystical all at the same time. I then started to understand the Hawaiian belief in the spirits and gods. This place was other-worldly.

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Photographer

And then as if the view weren't enough, we were joined by hundreds of frolicking dolphins.

Then came the caves.

Had we opted to take a calmer ride in a larger catamaran boat, we would not have been able to actually go into the caves.

In fact, the waves were so large by the caves that the first speedboat only got to the entrance and then came back out. Our amazing captain maneuvered backwards all the way into this amazing place.

On the way back up the coast we stopped to swim a couple of times in the turquoise water.

At the lookout of the canyon, there was an eerie silence as all of the tourists just stood and watched. We stood higher than the clouds as they slowly blew across the canyon making the only sound up there that of a humming breeze.

Saturday morning we woke up excited to do our kayaking tour. Unfortunately, the rain from the night before caused flooding in the river and it was cancelled. Instead, we rented some snorkel gear and headed back up the coast towards Hanalei Bay. We stopped a couple of times for some more photos of the scenery.

We passed Hanalei and got to the snorkel spot called Tunnel Beach. But first we had to go inside this dry cave, called Manihiholo. Be sure to notice the lady walking in so you can understand the proportion here.

After the cave, we snorkeled. Here is Tunnel Beach (taken with an underwater camera).

And here are some of the best shots we got with the $15 underwater camera.

It was a great way to end the trip!

Going to Kauai, I thought to myself, we need to fit everything in since I may never come back. On the last day, I wasn't worried about missing the kayak tour since I am hopeful we will return again and again. Truly, it was a little Heaven on Earth.

Max https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/8/max Sweet smiles. Little cute bundle. Sleepyhead. When you look at photos like these, it makes you forget the cries and sleepless nights.

Max is the first baby to join the Wiley family. He was as sweet as can be and did a great job during his session, however you can tell this one has a little "fire in the belly." That can only mean one thing ... he will grow to do great things in life!

Max.

Grace https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/8/grace The first time I met Grace was upon entering her home for the first time to do one of my first newborn sessions ever. It is families like the Bengtsons for which I am so appreciative, that were with me from the beginning. They helped me grow as a photographer.  

Grace as a newborn, age 1, age 2, and age 3.

Four years and several photo shoots later, we were able to produce our favorite session to date...Grace and I.

Four-year old gorgeous Grace....

Happy birthday Grace!

Alexander https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/8/alexander Seems like it has been a while since I got to photograph a newborn boy. And boy did I have fun with this one! Alexander was 3 weeks old when I met him, which means I was expecting him not to sleep as well for me since he was outside that 10 day frame. Luckily, he exceeded all of our expectations and slept like a perfect angel! His skin was perfection. His face was irresistible!

Meet Alexander.

Baby Addyson https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/8/baby-addyson This little angel, Addyson, was just perfect for me last week! Addyson was just 4 days old when I photographed her, which was the perfect age, as 4-10 days old is ideal to shoot newborns in these types of photo shoots. With every newborn session the parents get to pick the colors/style they wish to incorporate, and they have full access to all of my headbands, hats, wraps, outfits and props. I enjoy coming up with my own new combinations each time, but I am also open to any suggestions that parents bring. 

Here, I loved the aqua/pink combo that her mom suggested!

All newborn sessions include shots with parents if that is what you desire. Either way you will receive beautiful lasting memories from the first few days of your baby's life. It is my pleasure to give my all to reach this goal as I understand how fleeting these moments are.

I send my biggest congratulations to this happy family of three and am so thankful that I got the opportunity to photograph this dream of a baby!

Sweet Shawnee https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/7/sweet-shawnee I love this job. Babies like Shawnee who give me cheeks for days and a perfect session make it easier for me to say it too!

I love meeting new families with their very first baby. No matter where we have been in life, we all come to that common ground once a newborn enters our world. We all have similar highs and the lows in those first few weeks.

I love chubby newborn cheeks and I can't say it enough!

I love when parent choose interesting colors and styles or bring meaningful props. It sparks my creativity and the outcome is truly unique.

Color!!!

The name Shawnee has special meaning. She is the namesake of her dad's brother, Shawn, who passed away a year ago.

She holds the dog tag of her uncle who used to serve in the military.

What a difference a year can make. I am happy that Shawnee leads this family into a new joyous stage in their lives.

I feel so blessed to have met this strong family which is just another reason why I love this job.

My 5 Year Old Dreamer https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/7/my-5-year-old-dreamer My love and my twin ... our little Harper has turned 5 and she now thinks she should act like she is 15. Five years ago is also when I started my love for baby photography. I give thanks to my first born for being the reason I am a professional photographer today and always inspiring me.

I wanted to include here my favorite photos from each of Harper's milestones: birth through age five. 

 

Out of all of the pictures I snapped of Harper as a newborn, I remember thinking that this one on the left looked the most "professional". After her, I began my quest to learn and learn and learn about newborn photography.

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child Photographer

Harper's was my very first cake smashing session at age 1 above on the right. I learned then and there that grass and frosting do NOT go well together!

 

At her 2 year session, I clearly thought that more was better! It is definitely fun to set up these stylized shoots, but when you have a 2 year old that doesn't look at you or do anything that was in your plans, it can be a bit challenging!

Nonetheless, she did look adorable at her very first fancy tea party! Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child Photographer

At 3, Harper helped me capture one of my favorite photos of my career. This was my dad's favorite shot as well! You can't plan for these moments to happen (especially with a 3 year old), but when the light, hair, expression and camera "click" all at the same time, it is most definitely magic. Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child Photographer

By 4, she knew all about posing for mom.

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child Photographer

 

Then age 5 came around and, boy, has it been hard for her parents to keep up with her imagination. I know we are not the only family that experiences 10-15 outfit changes a day, right? Clothes and costumes are what rule the world of this 5 year old. 

 

Here are some of the outfits that Harper acquired during her fifth year paired with a little magic from Photoshop! This awesome age is filled with everything that is whimsical, and therefore I wanted to showcase that fantasy in images that exceed her vivid expectations! 

What girl doesn't want to believe she is Elsa!

Jasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child PhotographerJasmin Rupp Photography Wichita Kansas Child Photographer

 

Well we had to have BOTH Elsa costumes. 

 

Here is "Coronation Elsa" in full character.

I can't stress enough how much this girl loves anything RAINBOW! Therefore, I give you ... Rainbow Fairy Harper.

Thanks to Grandma, this adorable number has entered the rotation in the last couple of weeks.

And lastly, her newest obsession is that of a woodland fairy.

is who gets to hold baby Susannah.

Yet it was definitely the joy that outshone everything else in the home of Ryan and Molly. I was most impressed with the composure of these first-time parents. It was an honor to be able to capture their new reality just days after Sammie came into their lives. Their little girl was my very first in-home lifestyle newborn photo session.

My Daddy https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/5/my-daddy Dr. Joe Steven, Jr

October 11, 1950 - May 22, 2015

Our Journey

My dad passed away Friday May 22, 2015 after a long battle with cancer. Exactly one year prior, he had to have his bladder removed due to an aggressive tumor. Luckily, they were able to reconstruct a new bladder. Then in October 2014, the cancer came back. My dad began his fight with stage IV cancer at that moment. After his first 4 treatments with chemo and a VERY strict diet and lifestyle change (led by yours truly), the tumors were almost gone! (Two of the most helpful books were "A Definitive Guide to Cancer" and "How to Prevent and Treat Cancer with Natural Medicine.") When we heard that news, it truly was the happiest, most victorious day of my life. We all cried tears of joy at the office the moment we heard. My dad told me I saved his life ...... as we cried together for the first time ever. I will never forget that moment.

So of course, we continued the same chemo regimen. As is common with traditional cancer therapies, he started losing weight because he lost his appetite as a side effect of his treatment. Therefore we started letting him eat just whatever sounded good to him. After all, everything was working so we had a little wiggle room, right? 

About two weeks later, his back started hurting. We were told that it was probably arthritis or the fact that he had lost some muscle mass. After the next 4 chemo treatments, the back pain got so bad that we did another scan. {Enter one of the worst days of my life.} The tumor had done a complete reversal and was bigger now then it was when we began. Feeling completely defeated, we rushed to MD Anderson.

Unfortunately, after just one treatment with the strongest chemo regimen that MD Anderson had to offer, they could tell by his blood work that it was not working. We knew at this point that there was no cure and he had months left. We decided to do radiation to help with the back pain and bleeding that the tumor was causing. Although this was not a cure, we hoped it could buy us a few more months if successful. The radiation absolutely did its job by shrinking the main tumor, however, he ended up with a colon infection that took him down for weeks making him weaker than ever. At this point around the end of March 2015, we heard for the first time that the cancer had spread to his liver and he had less then a month left. 

The End

The months of April and May have been the most invaluable blessings to our family. Yes we had many irritating moments with each other, as my mom, sister and I were gripping to anything we could reach, and my dad was most certainly not the easiest of patients. Getting him to eat was absolutely the biggest challenge we encountered throughout the process, and his siblings and girls at the office can account for that too! It's hard to know what a person dying of cancer is going through, but no one was giving up just yet. And in fact, 2-4 weeks turned into 8 weeks. We did everything in our own power, which unfortunately was trumped by the power of the cancer. With cancer, you get to say and do everything you need, leaving that "no regret" feeling that is often not an option when it comes to death. In that, cancer has an odd way of blessing families. 

The Person, Joe

I joined my dad as a dentist at Riverside Dental back in 2007 and was able to learn his way of practicing dentistry. In fact, he had the pleasure of teaching "his way" to thousands and thousands of dentists around the country for 30+ years. As his obituary explains, he was a nationally recognized lecturer and consultant through his dental company KISCO, whose goal was to make others in the profession more efficient and successful. He believed that one could be a successful dentist while doing "bread and butter" dentistry as he called it. He was known as a leader of the "silent majority." He taught that if you treat your patients like family, as if every one of them were truly important, then you will be successful. His favorite book, by which he lived his life, is Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People". A hard copy remains with him today in his resting place. 

The outpouring of stories about my dad from other dentists and how he personally helped their careers, has been wonderfully overwhelming.  Click here to read just a few of the many comments that have come my way about my incredible dad. Check out this video from a lecture room full of his dental "fans" in Destin, FL this year (the first one he wasn't able to attend in years). 

I always knew that people loved him and appreciated what a funny and kind guy he was. But it wasn't until he passed that I realized the immense effect he had on so many people's lives. His staff at the office adored him and many had been with him for 15, 20, 25, or 30 years! He believed that his own success was because of his wonderful staff of loyal women throughout the years. Going through this process has solidified the relationships I have with these women, as I see the loyalty and love they have had for their boss and friend, which is often rare. I now have some pretty big shoes to fill. And they WILL be filled in honor of my great father.

What I Learned

Pick the right doctor. I have so much more respect for our oncologist because he was open to our ideas along the way. He never acted as if his word was gold, even though my dad thought it was. He was as caring as anyone can be. We were not just a statistic to him. 

Having said that, in the busy world of hospitals/doctors/nurses, no one will look after you like YOU. It is our own responsibility to take care of ourselves. If something doesn't seem right, it probably isn't. 

At the start of our journey, I began learning from the brilliant Dr. Bernie Siegel about all the different aspects that go into treating illness. One of the most inspiring books I have ever read is his "Love, Medicine and Miracles." What I learned from him that I can pass on is that the motivation of the patient to be proactive is crucial for survival of stage IV cancer. You canNOT wait for someone else to heal you. It starts within. And I believe it is possible. Bernie Siegel gave me that gift. The glass is still half full here. 

My Healing

The one thing I wish I had done was to really photograph him at the end, especially with my girls. However, for whatever reason, the timing wasn't right and it didn't happen. Perhaps this is why I chose to make a blog about him. I will always be able to add to it and come to it when I feel the need. There were some beautiful, heartfelt speeches and eulogies written and read at my dad's services. Here are the ones from his rosary service, by his sister Rene Brand and by his best friend Dr. Mark Troilo, who will continue lecturing on his own through KISCO. My husband, John Rupp, gave a very touching speech at his funeral that had the whole place in tears. Here is his. At the meal after his services, this letter was read, which was written by an old friend of his Brad LaFever that touches on every wonderful aspect about my dad. As one of my favorite cards reads, "There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains." I am so proud to call him my dad, boss, and mentor. Here is the video I made to honor his great life, played to some of his favorite songs. My precious Daddy....

Class of 2015 - Jessie https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/5/class-of-2015 It may have only been six months ago that I met Jessie, but she quickly became part of our family ... and just as quickly will be moving on to new adventures in her life now that she has graduated high school. We hired this delightful young lady around the first of the year to nanny for us since I had to go back to work full time, as my dad has been battling cancer for the past year. Both Jessie and her family have been such blessings to John, myself, Harper and Lola during these past few months.

Jessie has been the perfect role model for our girls ... an enthusiastic, charming, independent and poised young woman. 

We just attended her high school graduation party and got to meet and spend more time with her wonderfully cool family. We will truly miss our amazing Jessie but wish her all the best in the world! She will go far.

Just as beautiful on the inside....

Harper and Lola are hooked!

XOXOXO

4Ever Young! 4Ever Fun! https://www.jasminruppphotography.com/blog/2015/5/4EverYoung4EverFun Nothing says fun like four 4-year-olds dressing up, being silly and looking gorgeous! These four beauties exceeded my expectations last weekend. I have been looking forward to this project for a while now, and am excited to use it to help get my blog started! With the help of two Etsy shops, Feather River Boutique and Piper Collins Designs, my visions were accomplished!

The differences in each of these girls is clear when you meet them. However, there are a few awesome qualities that most 4-year-old girls have in common: silliness, silliness and more silliness. The laughter, lightheartedness, and fascination they have for each other was very fun to watch. Makes me want to be four again!

4 and Fabulous! 4 and Free Spirited! 4 and Flawless! 4 and Fierce!

These cute tank tops are from Piper Collins Designs.

The silliness...

And cuteness.

And my second vision was this.

I was so inspired by the beauty in each of these 4-year-olds.

Flower halos made by Feather River Boutique.

The laughter.

Fascination for one another.

Berkley.

Lily.

Alana (whose parents are photographers...no pressure!)

And my own baby Harper.

It was a fun night with four, fabulous 4-year-olds!
