ben at 3 1/2 months

I am without words this evening, as life has a way of sometimes leaving me speechless.  I must say, however, that I am madly in love with little Ben’s mohawk.  I really hope he still has it at his 6 month session 🙂





Peace, love, and baby cuddles ♥ anya

arthur and his peeps

I had the most FABULOUS time photographing 4 month old baby Arthur and his delightful family!  It isn’t often that I get an outdoor evening session and I was reminded about how fabulous the light is, and also how much FUN it is!

Arthur shows his brother and sister who is REALLY the boss in this family …..  😉








That is what these images are to me. It does not matter to me that I felt fat when these photos were taken, or that I really don’t like the outfit I am wearing. What matters to me most is that in these photos, you can see how our family used to be. My children have documentation that there was a point when we were happy, and that their daddy loved them very much.

People often question how much they are willing to spend on great photography. Great photography and timeless images do not come cheap. But I can assure you that they are worth every single penny. These beautiful images and this canvas collage were created by the amazingly talented Anna Mayer

Thank you Anna, for creating priceless memories of our family together.

My entry way

when life gives you lemons …

go to Mexico! My family spent the entire month of November traveling around Mexico. We experienced Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, and all points in between…because we drove…yes, drove! We then flew from Mexico City to Merida and once again…drove…the three hour drive to Tulum. At the end of our trip we decided to play tourists for a couple of days in Cancun, just for the heck of it. After a month all over Mexico, Cancun seemed ridiculously cheesy 😉

For the entire month, we spent only 3 nights in a hotel. During our time we rented two homes on the beach as well as an apartment in the Historic District of Mexico City. It was absolutely fabulous! These images are from beautiful Tulum. We hung out on the beach, body surfed (well my kids attempted), snorkeled, built sand castles, ate fantastic seafood, and just basically enjoyed each other’s company. At first my kids were a little culture shocked by the fact that we had no television, our home was powered by a wind generator, and internet was spotty, to say the least. But they came around and got used to it. They even learned how to play with one another without arguing (novel).

(and no, driving in Mexico was not scary in the least….even getting lost in Guadalajara and taking a 3 hour tour through the mountains at 2 am)


peace and much love ♥anya
