My husband the photographer

i've been pretty stressed out lately. for lots of reasons but mainly because we've had a lot going on. earlier this year we had planned 3 or 4 trips for this summer, and a couple of weddings. since the summer has started we've had a lot of unexpected trips thrown into the mix. it's been hard not so much because of the traveling but because of the reasons we've needed to travel. sometimes i get pretty bluesy. i miss my mom. this last weekend we finished up with the weddings and troy and i were reminded of how much we love taking pictures... okay rephrase... how much we love taking pictures together. it is our stress reliever, it's fun! when we were done i didn't care so much that we've been living out of duffle bags, spent tons of money on gas, lost sleep, and have been, at times, emotionally spent. Troy has many talents but the one's that especially stood out this weekend were obviously photography and his ability to make me laugh. it's impossible to be grumpy around him for very long. he cheers me up and i love him for it. um disclaimer, we don't just mess around at receptions but we did snap a few funny pics just for us... for keeps.

Evie has gas! it transforms our sweet little red haired baby into a red faced one as well! a good friend suggested we give her a warm bath to help her relax. we didn't have a baby bath so we fashioned a little baby hot tub. we got to witness the most wonderful transformation and SURPRISE!!!! so do you! troy captured it on film.

She's the best! Can't imagine my life without her!
