A few months ago we got official notice from the Army that we were being moved from Tacoma, WA to Miami, FL. I was super excited to get out of the rain but I knew I would miss my friends, and I do miss them so much. I had the most incredible friends in Washington, and Noah has grown up with their little ones over the last couple of years. There were a lot of tears shed during our many goodbyes, but I am thankful for Facebook for helping us all keep in touch.


April was a crazy month -- saying our goodbyes, packing the house, staying with friends, driving from Washington to Florida, staying with family for a week during the drive, and everything else that goes along with moving. And as usual, I documented our journey in photos ๐Ÿ™‚ I took hundreds of photos during in June, especially during our trip, and here are some of my favorites.

Moving is not all bad! Noah has a blast playing with the packing materials and boxes that the movers brought! I steadied some boxes for him to play on and made a maze from them for him to go through, which all seemed to help him adjust to the new changes.

I tried to make our goodbyes as fun as possible. We played at the park with our friends, had a goodbye party, got invited to friend's houses, went to a couple of bonfires, and visited some Tacoma and Seattle touristy attractions for the last time ๐Ÿ™‚ And I can never resist taking photos of my friend's little ones (a few are included below).

I can't resist the photos of Noah and my husband at the Seattle Aquarium!! He is such an incredible dad!

And now for our 7-day drive across the country...It went much better than we expected! Noah slept a good part of the drive time and the hardest part for me was sharing my space with the dogs. Our 80-pound American Bulldog thought he was a lap dog, which was definitely a problem when we were in close quarters for 7 days ๐Ÿ˜‰ I had to kick him off my lap many times because I couldn't feel my legs!

I know! I am just about 30 and have never been to a real wedding...sad, right? It is, but I had the time of my life. It was seriously the most fun I have had in years! And there is noting better than spending time with friends and family!!! And did I mention how handsome my little man looked in his tuxedo?! Adorable is an understatement! I might be biased, but I'm pretty sure he's the cutest kid I've ever seen! miami fl child photographerboy in window
On another note, I am usually the person with the camera up to my face for an entire event. I had multiple opportunities to photograph the bride, the happy couple together, the bridesmaids...and so on...and who did I photograph? The kids ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I always gravitate toward the kids!! All of you mommas out there know why! They are the most interesting and fun. They are always doing something outrageous, funny, awkward, or cute...always! And so I pulled my camera out when the kids (my son, the ring bearer, and Lucy, the flower girl) were being really cute in the Limo. Here are a few of my favorites: miami newborn photographermiami child photographerhappy boy in tuxedogirl in weddingflower girltoddler looking out windowsad boy in windowgirl in limotoddler girl smilingbewildered toddlertoddlers looking out window
And how cute is that last one!! The two little one's are all dressed up and ready to go, but hesitantly looking out the window to figure out what is going on. I'm so glad I didn't miss that moment! Now you ask, "How did they do?" They did surprisingly well getting down the aisle! After we walked down the aisle, we sat in the front and watched Frozen (Lucy's favorite) silently, and I fed my little man half-melted, soggy Tootsieย Rolls that I had shoved in my dress. Lol! And it worked great. Chocolate is my secret weapon! We had only a few random, loud outbursts from them and we were super proud at how well they did. And no wedding post would be complete without a photo of the bride ๐Ÿ™‚ ย And while my settings weren't ideal, and the bride is a little out of focus, I love this photo and know the rest of the bridesmaids will, too (besides Tiffany because your head is hidden ๐Ÿ˜‰ )! brides and bridesmaidsbouquetsCongratulations Becky and Jim!!!!!!
