I am learning that it is unfair to compare yourself. To other photographers. To other mothers. To other people in general. God has made us uniquely and given each of us a specific "eye" for creativity (whether the creativity it displayed through photography or as you mentioned, funny faces and impromptu silly dances).
I am still transitioning from a FT employee to a SAHM and am having trouble having grace for myself and finding my new life along with my little one's new life. While I dont know what I am doing, one thing I know is that I want to chronicle her life in photos (even though my photos are terrible as a have a rinky dink point-in-shoot...I am begging the hubs for an Iphone so the photos will be a little better!) and I want to chronicle her life in words through blogging and a personal journal in which we write letters to her.
Keep taking beautiful photos. I loved them and was inspired by them 3 years ago while planning my wedding and am still inspired by your words and photos now that I am beginning this new journey.

Your photography has always been an inspiration to me!! Keep taking and sharing them because I love seeing life through your lens! Your little ones are absolutely beautiful! It is so bittersweet how quickly they grow!


Beautifully written as always. Now having our sweet baby girl this post I can relate to. Stella is almost 3 weeks old and that's just too much for me to absorb. Running on little sleep and being consumed with everything baby I still enjoy every second. I have no idea how you take care of two little ones. That to me is a major challenge:) Alice I have always been a big fan of you and your creativity. You inspire so many and I don't think has anything to do with perfection. We are the hardest on ourselves. I've learned a lot from you and have enjoyed knowing you. You inspire me to take a better picture:) Funny after reading your blog post.

Beautiful pictures
Beautiful babies
Beautiful Alice:) hugs, Tina

I absolutely love this post, Alice!!! I love you, Josh and my grandchildren with all my heart. Good luck with the new shop, I am sure it will be a great success! I also know how it feels to see the kids grow so fast, I felt the same about you and your sister. Keep in mind that even though the time passes and they grow quickly and are ever changing, the love you have for each other is constant and never changing. Also, You can't take too many photos they will always bring back the memories of those precious times!! Grandma needs more for her house too (hint hint)!!


wonderful photos of the babes!!! thank you for sharing, im sure like others...we have been waiting patiently for a new post! i read this quote on someone's blog...sorry cant recall where, but it is so perfect.

"Comparison is the Thief of Joy"

Well Hello Alice W., good to see you here again! I guess that's like me on FB, I am hardly there, now that someone showed me Pinterest....oh yikes.
Your babies are sooo adorable and just the sweetest little pumpkins!!! I look for your updates on FB when I do go there and it has been so amazing to watch their progress.
How exciting for the new Etsy shop, I can't wait to see it!!!! Congrats!


beautiful photos ... beautiful children ... their eyes are just so blue! and you can hardly tell them apart in those last two, I agree! I wish I could take photos as well as you!

So good to "hear" your beautiful, heart felt words and see your gorgeous photography. It is a breath of fresh air. Motherhood is so precious and it goes so fast. My babies are 18 and 15... Janna looking towards college away from home and Connor, now officially taller than me and my husband. Oh, how the time flies! Enjoy each moment...


oh my goodness they are such beautiful children!

Ah yes, the growing up that comes with being a mother. Changes everything doesn't it? The best, is seeing the world through the eyes of a child, makes you look at everything differently.
