The Girls {Parker and Peyton}

I just wanted to share some of the pictures I have recently taken of the girls together! Might I add how proud I am of Parker. She is the best big sister. She loves holding Peyton and helping us with her any chance she gets. I pray they grow up looking out for one another and remain close throughout the rest of their lives. Love them!

Daddy and Me {Chris and Peyton}

Here are a couple cute shots that I captured of Chris and Peyton! Please forgive the different colors and hues in these photos, but I am playing with Lightroom and loving some of the different looks.

We have some exciting news to share! (Yes, this is a very delayed post.) For the past two months we have been busy adjusting to life as parents of two now that we happily introduced Peyton Emma Haas to the world on Jan. 27, 2014. She has been a wonderful blessing in our lives and we look forward to watching our girls grow up together.

My goal as a mother of two now is to make sure I capture just as much of Peyton's life that I did of Parker's, which is why I set realistic expectations from the beginning with Parker. For Parker, I knew I would have a hard time making a legit baby book for the second kiddo so I created a photo book of her first year instead. And just like for Parker's first year, we have a growing Picasa photo album - which is where I have stored all of my photos online since before Chris and I got married - for Peyton's first year for us to pull from already. 

Without further ado, we are pleased for you to meet the newest addition to our little family.

Parker {She's Four}

Today our daughter Parker turns four! She is the silliest, cutest little girl we know. 

Some fun things she's saying these days include: "micaloss" = lipgloss and "appointment" marker = permanent marker. She has a doll named Tewalla, and at one point, wanted to name Baby Haas "Sotars" if it's a boy, "Bella" if it's a girl and then changed her mind to name the baby "Joshua" because she definitely thinks she is going to have a brother. She loves to color, play hide-and-seek and sing herself to sleep. Every morning she eats waffles with syrup and loves to rummage through my purse for gum! These are just a few of the things that we love so much about her. 

Happy Birthday, Parker!

36 Weeks {My Maternity}

Here I am 36 weeks pregnant trying to take a couple self portraits before this baby gets here. I guess I wanted a little more proof that I was actually pregnant. I am usually behind the camera, but I decided to step in front of it for a couple quick and sweet shots with my daughter Parker and Baby Haas. You should have seen what I had to do to take these photos. It was rather exhausting, but I think these few proved the task well worth it in the end. I really need to invest in a remote shutter.

Haas Family {2013}

I wanted a couple portraits of the entire family this year versus taking maternity photos. We were able to capture a few good ones thanks to my brother Kevin's assistance.
