Daily, with the Jenks :: Columbia, Tennessee

This session was the perfect example of why documenting the everyday is so important. Beautiful, intelligent, funny, loving Avery is three years old, and she has already beat cancer in her young life.

I asked Avery’s mom, Tiffany, to share a little about their experience:

After a few months of Avery being ill, we received the news that no parent ever wants to hear. Our sweet little Avery, only 27 months old, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer on April 9, 2013. Avery had an extensive abdominal surgery to remove her tumor and spent a few weeks in the hospital. She has since shown no evidence of disease and continues to be monitored by her amazing doctors. Each time we go for a checkup, she shows us how strong and brave she truly is.  Avery is doing absolutely amazing and thriving more and more everyday. She loves to swim, play and has become quite the artist. Family time is so very, very important to our family even with the simplest of things like playing in the backyard playground to singing Katy Perry in our playroom. Prayers for Avery’s continued health are always greatly appreciated!!!” 

I was incredibly humbled to photograph a day in the life of this amazing family. A little bike riding, exploring the garden, putting on a “concert”, and playing baseball are all such simple things that this family now cherishes even more. I loved my time with them so very much!

 If you’d like for me to photograph a day in your family’s life, please write me at molly@simplyMphotography.com.

Danielle Brooks - Molly, These are SO great! You did a wonderful job!

August Goals

This is going to be a hard summer to let go of. I have really enjoyed my time the past few months – lots of lunches with friends, a beach trip + an international trip (will blog about it one of these days!), a slower yet fulfilling schedule of sessions, good books were read, and plenty of time at the local pool! It felt more like a summer should…on the slower side, but just busy enough.

However, my little heart beats faster when I see the school supplies out at Target (“…a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils”, anyone?) – or when friends post pictures of their kids heading off to preschool. Fall IS my favorite season, and there’s so much good that always comes in those cooler months. I’m already thinking of where I want my personal life and my business to go before Christmas arrives, and I look forward to sharing it all with you!

My July goals were short, but fairly tough: be present, and trust God. Honestly, these are two things that I will be working on the rest of my life! I’m not an all-or-nothing person – I think any progress is still progress. There was at least one time in July that I chose God over worry…and that was a huge deal for me! Maybe in August I’ll shoot for two times – gettin’ crazy over here.

(I did also finish the gallery wall above our couch! Yippee!)

August goals:

  • Finish The Book Thief before our next book club. A few girls from our church began a book club last month and I did NOT finish the book on time (though I lead the discussion…). I’ve heard great things about The Book Thief, and I’m excited to read it! (If you’re looking for a book club near Spring Hill, I’d love for you to join us! Send me a message!)
  • Finish my session Welcome Packet. I was able to be mentored by the amazing Gina Zeidler this spring, and she got me working on a new welcome packet for when new clients book a session with me. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and it feels good to have it 90% completed. Need to add in a few more items!
  • Catch up on blogging. This is really a fight with myself. It bothers me that I have more than a dozen sessions waiting to be blogged, because I hate having things hanging over me that need to be done. All of my clients have their photos, and that’s the most important thing, but I would love to have all sessions scheduled and ready to post! I’m shooting for getting half of this accomplished before September.

 

What are YOU hoping to accomplish this month? I’d love to hear!

Link up with me over on The Tiny Twig, too!

 

 

Jack | One Year :: Franklin, Tennessee

Jack is one cute little guy, y’all. From his newborn session, to six-months, to now, he’s been quick to smile and *always* wants a snuggle from Mommy and Daddy (which leads to sweet pictures on my end!). I’m so thankful to have gotten a chance to document his first year!

Jack’s parents signed up for my “Welcome, Baby!” First-Year Portrait Plan. If you or someone you know is expecting, and would like to learn more about these sessions, email me at molly@simplyMphotography.com.
