Milk, cookies, and a baby brother.

On Drew's first day back from maternity leave, she was sweet enough to meet us in a field for a little session with the girls and Shane.
All of my favorite things in one place...
Sunshine, a tent, handmade dresses, daisies, a quilt, and cookies.  
Not to mention my super cute kids.

The girls mauled him, as usual.
Drew was able to coax some happy smiles from Mr. Serious.
Cookies were devoured.
Milk miraculously wasn't spilled.

But I totally cried happy tears when I saw how Drew captured the love and bond between our four gifts.





Thank you Drew for continually capturing the beauty of the moments that go by much too fast.
You are our fave!

See more happy pictures here.
Seriously.  Go.  It is so worth it.
While you are there tell Drew that she's rad.  Because she totally is.

Candy necklaces for bribing purposes.
Dresses from Blue Corduroy.

Tie tutorial from Crap I've Made.
Best photographer in the world, DrewB.

    BTW, you did a great job speaking in your session. I went into it thinking it would be good but it totally exceeded my expectations. I came away with alot from both you and Jeanette. Thank you!

  30. Seriously, I don't know if I've ever regretted letting hubs get a vasectomy and not going for a boy more than after that picture of Shane smiling with his beautiful blue eyes. My 3 girls need a baby boy to love and hold!!! Such blessings.
