history of a nickname

Beck. Becker. Becker Boy. Double B. Double. Dubs. (also, Dubby, or Dubby Doo) That is how his nickname came to be. It changes over time, but Dubs has seemed to stick. I’ve called him a thousand other things because we Sansom’s are givers of nicknames. We probably have one for you, too! Just ask! One […]

a tribute

Yesterday was Kelly D.’s birthday and it came and went without a post to pay tribute to the best husband a girl could ask for. I am just noticing that I am seriously lacking recent photos of him so for now I will just have to make a picture with words. Every day when Kelly […]

He’s official.

(the house decked out in a patriotic theme) Such fun at Famous Erin’s house! Did you know that I met Erin when she hired me to shoot her wedding some 11 years ago? I can’t believe it’s been that long. I am so happy that we crossed paths because she is a real gem. Tonight […]

Koryn

I don’t know about you, but each of my friends are very different from one another. Each of them seems to mesh with a side of me that no one else understands quite as well as they do. I love this. I love knowing that if I am in the mood to do some crazy […]

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mother. I couldn’t ask for anyone better. I love her so much and am so lucky she’s mine. My Mother’s Day was great. My house ‘O boys delivered their tradition of the best breakfast in bed any girl could ask for. Chocolate cake and Coke. And it only got […]

Hide and Seek

Little boys and dogs are like bread and butter. Or, is it toast and jam? How about peanut butter and jelly? Too many food analogies? Ok, how about a good book and a rainy day? Anyway, the point is that our boys love this dog. And she loves them right back. This is a video […]

Cami

This is my cute cousin Cami. She is obviously adorable. But what you might not know, is that she is also loads of fun. I tried to get some more serious expressions out of her… Which I did, but each of these serious pics were followed by about 20 of her cracking up and trying […]

Portrait of my mother.

This stone cold fox is my mother. As I was taking these pictures of her today, when I looked through my camera, I kept thinking how familiar she looked. I know that seems obvious, and I can’t really explain it further, but this expression is one I see a lot. And I think she looks […]

Tate’s Baptism

I had it all planned out. Date set, time set, someone scheduled to fill the baptismal font, someone to let us into the church building… all arranged. I thought if I began the food prep early in the week, and froze some things until the day of, I would be stress free and breezy. We […]

beautiful

I was so very excited to start shooting as soon as I got home, so I asked my lovely friend Shelby to be my subject. I wanted to do something really simple and pretty. If you were to ask me to describe Shelby in three words, they would be soft, feminine, and fun. I tried […]

Tate! Eight!

Tate, Yesterday, I was getting ready to go on a bike ride. I had a babysitter arranged and I was excited to get out and ride for the first time since last October. You asked if you could come and as I hesitated, preparing to tell you no, you looked at me with your blue […]

Beck turns 5 (even though he pinky swore he would stay 4)

Oh, Beck. Where to even begin. You are a miniature person with a personality so big I don’t know where you keep it. You are the littlest brother but easily the loudest. You are so sweet and snuggly one minute and in the next second you can erupt with a fury that is something to […]

Objects of my affection

This hangs on the wall in my kitchen. It’s a vintage baby food dish circa 1940, and I love it more than a person should love a thing. Partially, because it’s just so charming. The painted nursery rhymes on the ceramic are so sweet, and the functionality of it is just cool. It has a […]
