so a few weeks ago, i spent the day with my dear friend, nina. in april, she had a baby who i'm basically in love with. i told her as we were hanging out that i wanted to take pictures of sweet harlan. so we ran over to joanne's to get some fabric as our background, which will also be used as the back of the blanket nina is making. it worked out perfectly since it was the day before her third birthday, and it was a blast to be able to get the experience with a baby. here are some of my favorites

this one just makes me giggle. you always need a good screaming picture

sweet smiles

i love that she looks like the gerber baby in this one

family fun night

every fall, kids' city does a "family fun night" event. sunday, 10.20.13, the event was held at alldredge orchards here in platte city. this was actually the first time i had been there, and it is such a cute little farm. this year was different from past years, it was the park hill campus individually. usually we put it on with all campus's together. lindsey did a great job planning all of this on her own, and it was a fantastic turn out. i was able to just go around and take family pictures and some candids for the event. it was a blast.

emmett's face in this one just cracks me up

emmett loves my brother, and my brother loves emmett

emmett's mom is a professional photographer
