There are so many wonderful moments that I feel extremely blessed to be a part of and photograph. One of the most amazing things I've had the opportunity to photograph and witness are the births of my little nieces. Many of you may recall Lucy's birth story and Lola's birth story. What an emotional roller coaster, yet it's such a spiritual experience, photographs do not do it justice. I was thrilled when Jill and Kenny told me that they wanted me to be there to photograph the birth of their second baby girl Jade. What an intimate experience, to be honest I debated whether or not if I should blog these, but the images are too remarkable to not share (plus, I have the blessing from Kenny + Jill to share). Not to worry, I kept it clean!:) So here you go, let the images speak for themselves and tell this wonderful birth story of Jade Matilda!

Since the arrival of our little Monroe it's been crazy trying to keep up with all three of my kids. I had a goal this year to take more personal photos of my family and document our lives better. I've been doing just that, but have had hardly an extra minute to blog all the fun events and craziness here at the Lyon household! 

So, my kids have been a bit on the absent side of my blog, more than I'd like them to be. I want to include more personal posts in between my wedding/portrait posts. Here are some photos I took of my kids on a random day a few weeks ago while Justin was away at Coachella

I'm truly in-love with each one of my kids, their personalities just keep blooming and I'm trying to enjoy every minute of their childhood before it passes right by me!

Bought these bunny ears at the $1 bin at Target! I think they're hilarious on Monroe!
kids_april12_001.jpgYes....I do let my kids eat Otter Pops in the bathtub!

One of my favorite portraits of Monroe to date! LOVE her little dimple on her cheek below her left eye!

Thanks for humoring my love for my kids and letting me gush all over them:)
