out-of-the-office. :PERU:

hi friends!  i am on my way to a remote area outside of iquitos, peru & i’ll be out of the office until wednesday, 8/10!

i’m going to be living here on “the beautiful sweetheart”…

swanky, huh!!!

if you need anything, please send an e-mail & i’ll get back to you as soon as i’ve had a chance to catch up with my precious family!

i will have absolutely zero communication while i’m away, so please be patient until i am able to check back in with my real life before i get back to your real life!

enjoy the next few weeks, & please pray for our safety & some great images of peru for my camera!

thanks & blessings, js

cooper. :baby:

happy first birthday to sweet, blue-eyed cooper!

i first met cooper at his grandma’s amazing restaurant… the kennebec cafe!  he is blessed with an amazing family… & a gorgeous mommy!  cooper had just started walking when i went out to his home & i was so excited to see him waddling around doing “the franekstein”!  when i got to hang out with him i learned that little boys like to eat bucket hats, watermelon & rocks… they start loving wrestling at an early age… and all of the little boys around here have eyelashes worth obsession over!  cooper & his sweet family made my day…

happy, happy first birthday sweet cooper!  i loved spending some time with you learning all of your hilarious baby boy tricks!

Cooper’s first b/d photos captured his sweetness, good looks, joy, baby antics, and more– the photography did all this and the subject made it outstanding. Will enjoy looking at the photos over and over again. Granny Franny (Cooper’s great Grandma.
