By the time we realized we needed solar eclipse glasses, they were long gone. So you can imagine our excitement when we discovered the big maple tree in our backyard cast a projection of the eclipse on our fence. The shadows shifted and shimmered while our little Maine cub ran around.

This past week William fell head over heels in love with gorillas. It started with an Eric Carle book featuring a gorilla who thumps his chest. All last week he pounded his chest–first thing in the morning, throughout the day, and last night when I laid him down to sleep, he lay there thumping his chest. We're blown away by this.

A few days ago,  I drew a gorilla on the chalkboard for him while he napped. He was very excited to find Mr. Gorilla in our kitchen, but was afraid to get close to him for most of the day. Instead he stood in the corner of the kitchen looking at his new friend and pounding his chest. 

These are those memories that are so sweet I never want to forget–and I especially want to capture. Enjoy <3

This was such a fun maternity session to photograph of my friend Kiera. We did a combination of photos at their East End apartment as well as some walking around their neighborhood in Portland along on the Eastern Prom. If you missed it be sure to check out their beautiful baby girl Finn and her newborn session as well!
