If you feel like photoshoots have taken over this blog lately…. it’s because they have. I fluctuate between scrambling to meet deadlines at work (read: going through all sorts of exciting charts about urban migration in 19th century France because YAY) and scrambling to get photos back to people in time for those all important Christmas cards.

Who is now almost 2, soon to be a big sister, and basically ready for college? How did THAT happen? But enough of that — here are some fun shots from my quick afternoon with Mollie and her parents.

His imagination plus these sunny blooms is making my Monday bright.
