AZ Photo Shoots

When Tatum texted to say that her water broke I decided I needed to find a way to get to Mesa. I sent out an email to family members without Tatum knowing that I wanted to come but was wondering if anyone needed photos to help pay my airfare. The last thing I had to do was convince Brandon it was a good idea. He was very willing to take on the extra responsibility as long as I made arrangements for the kids while I was gone. I decided to keep it secret from Tatum with everyone else knowing I was coming. I think Tatum was getting annoyed by everyone trying to convince her she did not need newborn photos done in the first week.  I got in later Tuesday night. Chase had told us to come by their place to surprise Tatum. I knocked on the door close to 11:00PM. I definitely surprised her. It was a great quick trip. I wish I could have spent more time with different people. Here are some photos from the different photo shoots.

I've Been Busy

I have been busy. Almost a month ago I was able to visit my family in Mesa right after my sister Tatum had her first baby. I had four photo shoots while in Mesa to help pay for my airfare. I then came home to my kids first track out from school. I like this year round schedule. Lots of walks, park time, YMCA, and jumping. One photo shoot before Brandon and I left town. Brandon and I cruised for 5 days. Thanks to my mom for being willing to watch our kids. We then came back to our kids last week of track out which I then got sick for the first few days of the week. I have so many photos to share of the last few weeks.

Took the girls bowling first week of track out.
