I found out that I love taking photos...again. After editing these, I realized that I'm simply filled up by it. Here's why:

1. I was able to connect with two people who I haven't really interacted with since high school beyond an occasional chat after church, and then meet their two kids who are such a beautiful reflection of both of them.

2. After a day of commotion and stress and in-and-out errands, I found myself so peaceful while I was taking the photos (high five on a peaceful home, Anna and Matt!).

3. When I left, I thought I might have a little bit of a fistfight (...not really, but you know) with my daughter. When I got home, I couldn't wait to lap her up. 

So thank you, Anna and Matt and your two cute-beyond-cute little ones, for gracing me with a wonderful reminder of how grateful I am for these photos and the ability to take them.

Enjoy,

Rachel

The Last Boyden's (No, Really. I Promise.) :: Family Photo, Columbus, Ohio

This post serves as the third in a series I've just now entitled, "The Boyden's: A Global Family". This isn't the title because it's a progressive idea of how to approach familial issues with a global mindset. It's the title because I've come to be convinced that, in some way, we're really all Boyden's (and we should be proud)...

Today I was flooded with this memory. My old basement in our house on Hearthstone Ave where I grew up. Giant square of maroon carpet. Green sectional couch. Toy baskets neatly shoved to the edge of every inch of perimeter of the room.

My two sisters, our neighbor and I are there pretending, for the seven-thousandth time, to act out every scene from Beauty and the Beast. Our parts were most definitely chosen based on seniority: Our neighbor got to play Belle (maybe because she was the guest?), my older sister was the Beast (a very begrudging yet elegant Beast), I played Lumiere and my younger sister got stuck with Cogsworth. Occasionally our roles would require us to swing back and forth from Mrs. Potts and Chip, but we definitely saw it as an honor to play all of the household items.

There you have it. A pretty much cookie-cutter memory from every child who lived through the nineties. 

Now, these two little boys would make excellent Chips, but only because he's the cutest, roundest, happiest, bounciest member of the cast. They most certainly bear all of these characteristics and more. I am always grateful to this family allowing me to photograph them! I've followed them with a camera on their wedding day and through several photo shoots as a family. 

Enjoy!

Last week Edith and I went to Costco with my mom (a common occurrence) and they had a miniature playhouse there. [Enter, Edith's dream come true.] So, instead of doing any actual shopping, we, along with several other passersby (who we soon came to find were also grandmothers), watched her play for 45 minutes. One of my favorite stay-at-home-mom activities to date :-)

I'm fairly sure that little house was the same as the one you see in these photos, thus proving little playhouses prove to be excellent investments (plug for Costco in hopes of free diapers?). These girls and their personalities were so much fun to catch on camera.

Enjoy!

Today marks my 570th day of motherhood! I'd like to consider myself an old pro, but aside from the fact that the once-frequent "is she breathing?!" checks have subsided, everything looks about the same as it did on day one. Some days I look at my hair in the mirror and get a little scared as I remember the infrequency with which I now shower. Here are some of my shining moments as a mother:
