Olivia and the Home Try-On Kit

When Olivia was 5 years old she started complaining of headaches. We found out that she was nearsighted and needed glasses for reading, tablets, etc. We got the best of what we would find frames, but were never really happy with what was available. We even tried ordering extra ones online, only to be disappointed in the quality, design, and fit. 

Fast forward to Jan 2018 and Olivia is now eight years old. It was time to go for her eye appointment and I knew we would need to buy new frames, and dreading it. Then one day while on Instagram I ran across Jonas Paul Eyewear and let me tell you, it was love at first sight! 

I excitedly called Olivia over to look and she was just as smitten as I was! We browsed through the styles and then saw that they offered a Home Try On Kit! It was only $1 to have it sent to us and we had a week to try out 7 different styles! We had the choice of a Tortoise or Black Set, we chose Tortoise.

It was so exciting opening up that box and having time to REALLY try out each style and get a feel for what she wanted. Literally with every pair she just beamed with confidence, but she kept coming back to two different pairs in particular, "Lauren" and "Maddie".

It worked out perfect because she actually needs two pair. We keep one at home, and one pair for school and out and about (she reads every chance she gets!) Ordering our glasses was so simple, I took a photo of her prescription with my phone and it gave me the option to upload a pic and done! Her prescription glasses are on their way! We cannot wait to get them!!!

Baby Katherine - Newborn | Montgomery, AL Child and Family Photographer

My baby sister, Tracey recently birthed the newest addition to our family, Katherine. I am completely head over heels in love with her! I mean if I don't see her for a day or so I'm missing her like crazy. (Thankfully they live 3 doors down from us.)

I am the middle of 3 kids. There is my older brother Steven, and my little sister Tracey. We each have 2 kids a each. It's feeling like this might be the bookend baby for our family, and I can't think of a better one to fill those shoes. Katherine is mild, sweet, smiley, and a bit of a clinger. She would be pretty happy to be held 24/7. I have a hard time ever putting her down when I'm around her. I mean look at that face! 

Here are a few of my faves from her in home newborn session, enjoy!

I have had the privilege of knowing this sweet girl since the day she was born. She is my niece, and I truly love her like my own. I take her photos every year, but this year she proudly wore a toothless grin and little high heels :) This was also the first year I have made a video of her, and it is one of my fave. I always call her a "party in a box" because of her spontaneous, vibrant, and fun personality. I feel like the video really captured the energy that she brings to our lives everyday.
