{The Whole Bag!} Holverson Family

Reid and Leah were in Emo visiting family for Thanksgiving so how perfect to get family photos done at the farm Leah grew up at. Her daughters sure have grown since the last time I  saw them. Quite the beautiful, young ladies they are growing into!  Here are my favourites from this family session!

{The Whole Bag!} Mike & Carly

I love that Mike and Carly value regularly having family photos taken. The memories made while taking the photos and the photos themselves are such great keepsakes! I did a few photos of the girls while the littlest was still really little earlier this year but they wanted to save family photos for the Fall. It was a bit chilly when we started in the morning but the colours around their home were beautiful and they were all looking pretty great too 🙂  Here’s a few of Mike and Carly and their four growing daughters!

{The Whole Bag!} David & Beatriz

I had a lot of fun chasing my nephew around for these photos! 🙂 I sure have adorable nieces and nephews!

Bea’s parents were in town for a few weeks so it was nice to get some family photos while they were here as well. We had a beautiful, late summer evening to capture these.

This blog post is a little late coming but here are my favourites from my brother’s family session. Such great people that I’m proud to call family!

Veldhuisen Family

Jeannette told me that other than at her children’s weddings they hadn’t really had pictures of the two of them done since their own wedding! Challenge accepted! 🙂 Nico and Jeannette, I think we got a great one! 🙂

We had the perfect day to get the whole family together! I’m having a hard time not sounding cliche here but …. all because two people fell in love. 🙂 I love pulling together the parents, kids and grandkids and seeing how the family has grown through the years. What a blessing it is to have family by your side.

Hudson {5 Year’s Old!}

Wow, I have a 5 year old!  This Fall I started homeschooling Hudson for SK.  Really we aren’t doing that much this year, but he is eager to learn and I am enjoying it most days. He is learning how to read and practicing writing.  When he wants to he can be very focused and get hard things done. But he has to want to…He has really been enjoying learning words though!

This year we have seen Hudson come out of his shell a lot. He is still a cautious and, at times, shy kid, but he has opened up to visiting his Auntie’s Kindergarten classroom when we are in Emo visiting family. He will play with kids he doesn’t know and engage in activities that previously caused a lot of social anxiety.  I enjoy seeing him interact with others of different ages and try new things.

This past year you have had many exciting and different things happen. In no particular order you…. were a handsome cowboy for Halloween. You build snowmen and climbed trees. You moved into a new bedroom downstairs with your sister. Then upstairs with your sister. And then into your own room next to your sister! You got a NEW sister and two new cousins! You watched, and learned and helped with all kinds of house reno projects (mostly watched) 😉  You truly discovered how sweet snuggling a little baby is. You had all of your cousins sleep over at your house at different times. You practiced on your bike and rode on four wheelers and tractors. You drove 40 hours with your family to visit family and friends. You met some new friends and said goodbye to many good friends this year. You are braver, stronger and taller. You rode a pony, jumped for hours and hours on the trampoline and swam in many different lakes.  You went to many birthday parties, rode on your first ferris wheel and roller coaster and went wall climbing. Our family went camping with Auntie Steph and slept in a tent by the lake. You acquired MUCH Lego!

You are smart, energetic and enthusiastic. You notice and figure things out that often surprise me. Your mind works like your Daddy’s in that way. Right now you say you want to be an Engineer when you grow up. You used to say you would work at Daddy’s office but now your dream is to live in Waterloo with your buddy Logan.  You love Lego, Minecraft and learning. Two of your favourite things are to have somebody play Lego with you or to play “friend’s on the mining game” (co-op minecraft with Daddy). You love playing at the park, jumping on the trampoline and making up games in the yard with Emmy. You adore Arie. You can be incredibly sweet. You are super excited about learning.  If Mom would let you, you would eat toast with honey every single meal!  You have a fantastic smile and I love seeing the handsome, caring boy you are growing into.  We love watching you grow and learn and develop your dreams!

We’re proud of you! Keep that passion to learn alive, son.


Here’s the H-Man through the last five years! 🙂 d’awww

Arwen {8 Months!}

Little Arie is 8 months old! How time flies by. I love love LOVE this kid!
I think this month it doesn’t seem like that much is new, but she’s just that much more confident in all that she’s doing.  She moves around – climbing, walking along furniture, pulling up on everything, getting down from things – with much more ease.  She does seem finally like she can sit really well. Before she had no interest in sitting so when I would put her in that position she didn’t sit all that well and immediately went into crawling. But now she can sit comfortably if she wants to.  She’d still rather be moving though. 🙂 We took to the great outdoors for our photos this week. We really should be out enjoying more of this beautiful Fall weather!

Arwen {7 Months!}

Miss Arie is 7 months old! I love this age. She doesn’t sleep all that well and there’s always teething but I just find so much joy in this age. She is constantly learning new things and exploring. And she just has so much joy. She has a few different smiles that she frequents and they are so special!  Still no teeth so its the adorable gummy smiles!

She crawls anywhere and everywhere…although hard tile floors aren’t her favourite. 🙂 She has been pulling up on furniture for a while now but has now also learned how to get down. So much better now!! I don’t have to keep rescuing her from funny places as often. She can also climb stairs! Yikes! She’s definitely not ready for that! I think she’s learning how to wave. It seems intentional anyways.  And she’s trying new flavours of foods. Mostly meats, veggies and fruits.  She enjoys feeding herself a chunk of whatever we are eating. She LOVES Hudson and Emmy so much and felt so lost for a week when they were away staying with Grandparents. Its cool seeing how their relationships with each other is changing as she grows.

We are all really enjoying getting to know this little personality!
