Belgium is having a heatwave and there is no AC…………………………………………………
Mad props to this expecting mama and her family for trekking through the forest with me and still looking gorgeous for these family photos! This baby is coming into such a loving family and will have two amazing older brothers to show him how to have a good time, make a silly face, and act crazy and two amazing parents who are so in love and so playful.
Tomorrow, my family and I are leaving for Athens, Greece! I’m so very excited to take some much needed time off and chill with J and my husband and of course to see Athens! With our move coming up we’re trying to see as much as we possibly can and Greece has been a must-see for me since I was a kid. This duty station has, hands down, has been a whirlwind of adventure and I’m so sad our adventures in Europe are coming to an end but I’m so thankful we’ve gotten to see things that some people only dream about.
That said, we’ll be a little slower the next few days but I promise to keep the updates coming when I can!

I can’t get enough of this little bird! I can’t believe she’s 5 months old already! She laughs soooo much! I got to cuddle her and J. at the same time and it was a task but was a FUN task! You can see more of our favorite Wren here: The last peep! & Little Wren Potter
Little Wren’s daddy is a professional photographer himself in a different arena and so I’m always curious to hear his thoughts on how the photos turned out of his little one. Hopefully he finds these ones satisfactory. How could he not, with those little baby smiles?!
I have baby fever but since we found out we’re going to Minot ND in October, we’re holding off just a touch so we don’t have a blizzard baby. Until then, I hope I get to do a lot more of these Fresh 48 Sessions because they are too fun!
I love that every time I open up my images I’m falling in love over and over again with them. This little man was so calm and didn’t get phased by a single click of the shutter. Mama and Papa were so in love with each other and baby. The session was just amazing.
I love taking families to the local parc in Jemappes because it’s a hidden (almost literally) gem in the local area. The entrance is hidden behind a Jupiler sign which leads everyone to believe it’s the entrance to a bar or restaurant–and it is!–but it’s also the entrance to a gorgeous parc! I’ve found out that Sundays are serious fishing days so I’ll have to find a new Sunday location to avoid all the red tape (literally) on our favorite locations.
This family, however, had an amazing time together at the parc despite the red tape and closed off bridge and pavillion! I felt more like a fly buzzing around their life rather than a photographer this time because this family just PLAYED! They were so wonderful together, I had a great time and got some gorgeous photos!
Last weekend, I got to work with a family new to Belgium and we had a fantastic time exploring the parc! As soon as dad put little N down he wanted to go, go, go! There is always so much to explore at the parc for little ones and N wanted to see it all! We had a great time exploring with this family and chasing N around! We even snagged a few portraits of him not escaping!
Today’s little family is a family with HUGE hearts! They are currently searching for little ones in need to add to their family and… what a loving home they’re walking into. Both big brothers dote on little sister and little sister is a spitfire! This family is part of my village and so I get to see updates on their daily life and, no joke, this family has a duck and chickens and oh they’re just too cute!
They came out to recreate a photo they had done when the boys were sooo much smaller and before little sister was around! I had a great time and the kids were all so well behaved while they played with all of little J’s toys in the backyard.
J got a sand table for Easter from his grandparents but J likes to eat sand so I filled it with Rice Krispies! He loves top lay with the rice krispies and his best friends like to clean it up as he goes.

Our frequent flyer, E, is back. She’s always such a character and her parents are so sweet that I always love when it’s E’s turn in front of the camera even when she outright refuses (no is her favorite word) to pose for us! She did love getting to hang out with daddy this time and trying on his boots!

This is probably the LAST set of pictures from this little girl before she moves away on her next big adventure.
I’m so sad to see this family go because A’s mommy is just awesome, A is so fun and so adorable, and A’s daddy? Well he’s a big softy for his little girl.
This session is the first from my military brat mini sessions and I think it perfectly captures the spirit of the military child.
