Meet Julia! She is a sweet little babe who just turned one year old last week, the perfect opportunity to celebrate by having her photos taken and end with a little cake eating! She loves exploring her world and walking on her own with every opportunity she can get! It was so fun watching her tumble over and then pop right back up and continue on her mission of getting somewhere on her own two feet! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session:

I decided to break up the twins’ monthly post this time around because I have so many photos to share! My dear friend Amanda came over to hang out with me and the babies and asked if it would be ok that she bring her camera along. Yes of course!!:)I loved every minute of hanging out with her, and she was so kind to take these photos, which I ADORE. I don’t get too many photos of me and the babies since I’m the one behind the camera, so I absolutely treasure these! Amanda took some pics of Madeline and I (Abe was napping!) way back in October, and it’s so crazy looking back at these – life has changed SO much since then!

I will post some fun facts about month 11 next week. For now, enjoy some photos! Amanda – you ROCK! Thank you for sharing your talent and giving us these precious photos!

I’m sure you’ll wonder what happened to Abe’s face…he fell and his face got scratched up, poor guy! He’s still working on the whole balance thing:)View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014One thing I don’t get enough of is quality time with each child individually.

Your cheeks are something else. I wonder if they’ll ever stop growing?! Hehe;)View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014This moment below? Abe started crying and then Madeline started in…likely a sympathy cry, which happens a lot around here. It’s a tricky thing when they both raise their arms to me, needing to be soothed at the same time!View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014And then I just had to crack up, knowing this was all being caught on camera!View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014View More: http://amandajoyphotography.pass.us/allison-twins-2014Thank you again, Amanda!!

    Aunt Susan - I absolutely LOVE the pictures!!! I will be leaving Indianola with David the day you come with the twins….works best but sorry I miss seeing them. David and I will try for a 2 hour visit when we come through in October. So much change…… And your Mom and Dad need some together time, some rest, some fun………they are awesome. Pray for Grandma and Grandpa….it is so hard. I can cry with the slightest reminder. Heaven looks good! But I have a house to move into with Dave and lots of adjusting to do…hope most of it is positive. Just love your sweet ones. Can you inbox or text me ideas for their first birthday???????

A couple weekends ago, I had the great pleasure of photographing a wedding with Amanda of Amanda Joy Photography! She has been such a dear friend to me after Melissa Jill connected us! Melissa photographed her wedding a couple years ago, and shortly after the wedding, Amanda moved to KC and Melissa just knew we had to be friends…and she was right! Amanda has been such a dear friend to me, and it was a blast getting to work with her! Check out her blog post for way more photos – she did an incredible job!

Jessica and Isaiah got married on a beautiful countryside, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Not only was their wedding day so lovely – perfect weather, beautiful style, gorgeous couple – but it was also centered in Christ. Everything they did shouted out His beauty and glory, and celebrated Him as the foundation of their marriage. It was a joy to be a part of this meaningful day!
