Summer.... where have you gone?

On Monday, my three oldest kids will be going back to school. All the school supplies have been bought. The uniforms have been pressed and are ready to be worn. We have met our teachers (and we made out this year!!!) and we should be ready but... I am not. I miss my kids when they are away. The entertain me and say silly things. The house will be very quiet on Monday morning without them. Thank goodness for Emerson. She will have to step up her game and be three times more charming starting Monday.

I started reflecting on all the fun we had and thought I would share a glimse of the Riggott summer with you.

Grayson lost THREE teeth, including the top two. What a smile she has now!

Has it really been a year?

I can not believe it has been a year since I photographed this sweet little face. Time travels fast!

I had a great time at the University of GA Founders Garden with this big girl and her family. Once again, I had so many photos to sneak peek and had to really narrow down my number to blog. With a sweet face like this, it is hard to take a bad photo. Other than not being happy about sitting in wet grass, little A. was very easy to please. YAY!

I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Happy Independence Day!

I hope you and your family have a terrific day of fun and great food this July 4th. Enjoy the sparkly fireworks but be safe!

A whole lot of sweetness

I just love photographing little B. and his family. This is the third time I have photographed this sweet family. Time is passing so fast. :( B. is three months old.

As usual B. was a perfect little model and so tolerant of all the clothing changes and poses. I could have taken pictures of him all day. It certainly does not hurt that he is as cute as a button.

This blanket was made my B.'s great-grandmother years ago. It was beautiful.
