Forever Daddy’s Little Girl Sessions

When we paid to have my wedding dress sealed and protected in a museum-style memory box, we didn’t plan on busting into it before our daughter joyfully asked for it for her own wedding. But a nine year old girl with gorgeous long eyelashes and the sweetest “pleeease, can we Mom, puh-leeeease?” changed all that. As we prepare for the upcoming “Daddy’s Little Girl Sessions” on Sunday March 15th, we agreed we’d shoot images of Lauryn in my precious dress. And little did I know the experience would bring us one of the most amazing moments together in the nine years I’ve known her. It was emotional watching her giddy girl face as we opened the first box to reveal the perfectly preserved gown, tied around a plastic bodice mold. I forgot how pretty the fabric and beading were and she was mesmerized by the glitz and glam of the whole thing. I felt this emotion come over me as we both gazed at the thing like two little girls ready to play dress up. And getting to capture all the next hour of her getting laced into it and parading across the field outside made the cost of resealing it completely worth it!

Valentine Unicorn

Excuse the “phone photo” quality….┬áThis kid has some crazy antics! Love this valentine idea he mustered up while looking at Pinterest with us!

Milestone Photography

I love portraits that capture milestones. First claps. First crawls. And I really especially love missing teeth! Once the adult teeth grow in, I feel like no matter how small, those “babies” no longer look like our tiny kids! So capturing these last moments of young childhood is the joy I have in photography. Look at this kid with his first “growing my hair out” milestone AND two missing front teeth. Love him!

“Buckeye’s Best” Perform and Raise $$ for their Schools

“The little boy who did the Indian-style dance at the end of the night was cute! He was the BEST!” ~ Chase and Lauryn, Blue Oak Montessori.

Last night, all the the schools in the Buckeye School District came together to raise funds for the Buckeye Education Foundation. The BEF provides additional funding to the elementary and middle schools it represents, supporting libraries, PE departments and providing technology and tech training to each of the schools. More than 30 kids brought their best talent to share with a packed Community Center in Cameron Park.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the best moments of the night. If you weren’t able to make it to the annual event, you can still donate to BEF by checking out their informational link at

Holiday Portraits

Two sets of braces and two toothless smiles makes 4 out of 5 of our little family these days. Matt took the pics so he’s not represented on this side of the lens. He also doesn’t have braces or missing teeth so he wouldn’t necessarily have fit in! Happy Holidays from the Suehowicz Family!
