Turning a corner...

This sweet little girl takes every last ounce of my energy. I was telling Dan that some days I feel like I can't get anything done... let alone blog. He suggested just posting these types of pictures... since that really is life right now. Thankfully she's beginning to be slightly less intense each day.

And these moments help to make up for all the exhaustion. I was so worried about them connecting since they are almost four years apart (and a boy and girl)... but they are the best of friends. I love it!

A New Year...

So... I'm not one to really make New Year's resolutions... but this year I decided that I really want to fit the blog back into our crazy schedules. I'm still trying to decide how I want to incorporate the business and Joe's Place sides of life into the blog... so for now I'm going to keep it all here. The simpler the better. I'm planning a series of posts to quickly recap 2011 soon... the biggest change being the addition of weddings to what we offer at 2R. I had the privilege of 2nd shooting 5 weddings for another St. Louis photographer this Fall, one on my own in November, and another with Dan in December. We also had the chance to work with some awesome families on Christmas card photos, a couple of sweet newborn sessions and an engagement session with an incredible couple. September, November and December were an INTENSITY that we've never known before... but we are so thankful for every moment of it and are really looking forward to what 2012 will hold. I wanted end the post with one of our attempted family Christmas card photos (we decided our tradition is always going to be self portraits) that didn't make the cut... but there's still something I love about it.
