I love 2 year olds. My son is almost 2, and I’m sure I don’t need to mention the wonders of the amazing two-year-old. At two we all seem to have a mind of our own, and usually we know what we want. My favorite part of photographing them is their smile. I have yet to meet a two year old who will smile on command, but with the help of a little silliness from behind the camera I get the most genuine expressions from my two-year- old clients. It’s kind of the best.

Just before Christmas, this little girl decided to give her parents the best gift they thought possilbe! How cute is she?! This newborn session was a delight, and such fun celebrating her very First Christmas. Her expressions were endless, and she was so perfect down to the smallest detail. Thank you, little Harper, for playing dress-up! You have wonderful parents, and many “firsts” to enjoy this year!

I absolutely LOVE this family. Love their joy, love their attitude, and love the baby mohawk! I am always so thankful and honored to be someone’s photographer. I still can’t believe I get paid to be a part of capturing memories and smiles. One year olds are some of my favorites, and the smash cakes just top off the cuteness…especially in this one.

These were taken in and around Waxhaw, NC. It’s a quaint little town with some great photo ops, but what really makes the photos are the faces in front of the lens.:)

On Guard Everyday

Incorporating a little bottle of genius…

This is week 3 of looking at the uses for On Guard. It’s one of my favorite oils, and probably the most used oil our house besides lemon, and melaleuca, and lavender, and…. I guess we use a lot on a regular basis! Anyway, we love On Guard. Here are a few ways we use it everyday:1. Topically on my son – We dilute On Guard in coconut oil, and put it on my son’s feet everyday. He’s 19months old so who knows where those sweet little hands will wander or what will end up in his mouth. Giving him a dose of On Guard, gives me just a little more peace of mind.
2. Easy Hand Sanitizer – I love to pull out my little bottle with diluted On Guard, and spray with pleasure anywhere I go. Grocery carts, the park, changing tables, highchairs, and if I wasn’t afraid of offending someone I might even spray toys at a friend’s house… maybe. The point is, the list goes on! Here is a recipe for sanitizer: On Guard Hand Sanitizer
3. A few drops for me – On guard is amazing for my son, and amazing for sanitizing, but I also love to use it myself for my body’s benefit. I put a little on my toothbrush every morning. My mouth feels cleaner, and I get the extra benefits of aiding my immune system.
4. Cleaning – We talked about how On Guard assists your body in ridding itself of viruses, well, it also can rid those germs from your dishwasher, your counter tops, laundry, your bathrooms, and many more just by adding a little to some DIY cleaning recipes. (You could also use lemon, but I love On guard!)

Happy Oil Using!!

On Guard Mister Virus!

Using On Guard to Support Your Immune System…

Continuing on this month of uses for On Guard. This week our house experienced a little bit of a nasty stomach bug. My husband is hardly ever sick, but when he is, it comes on STRONG. It used to be that when we got sick in our house, we rested up, made sure to keep well hydrated, and waited for our body to rid itself of its ickies. It’s horrible watching someone be miserable, and not be able to really help them. Can’t I do something, ANYTHING more? With my little tools in a bottle, the days of feeling helpless are now a thing of the past. I now feel empowered to give my family extra tools to help support our bodies as they fight off sickness and heal. The oils didn’t heal my husband, but the goal was to help support his body in what it was already doing. This is what we used:

Take it in a roller or in a capsule, and it can support your powerful, and complex immune system in fighting off its little attackers. Learn more about different ways to use your oils here: http://www.neweverythingessential.me
