Is a total eclipse rare? I don’t think they are as rare as we think, but the chances of us having one exactly where we live and play is rare.

So we were pretty excited when it happened right over our new cabin in Southeast Nebraska (official photos coming soon… it’s 99% finished!)

So we had a party.

Probably one of the most amazing things I have ever seen to date.

You may recognize Claire from her seniors last year. Well now she’s started college and it’s just a good time to update family photos. Simple as that.

I know how much her mama is feeling her absence. xoxo

Maddie love our Violet and is one of her favorite babysitters.

We’re gonna miss you, Maddie girl! Promise you’ll come to visit from time to time after you fly your parent’s nest.

My good friend stopped in Wahoo on their Summer vacation to surprise her husband with some shots of their babies.

The sweetest kiddos ever.

these images were taken in the oh-so-peaceful nap time hours.

Oh this Summer. I feel 100% blessed and I start and end my day with GRATITUDE and JOY. (trying really hard to remember to take a moment and do that, anyway)

I am blessed to be my own boss… stay home with Violet part time and not miss anything with her.

This week she started sleeping in a toddler bed and it’s a total God thing that I happened to photograph nap time on the very last day she ever slept in her crib. #tear

Happy Friday, people.

So wow. What is life like these days for the Ideus household?  Well… you may expect me to say ‘we are so super busy and life is crazy and we don’t know if we’re coming or going.’ But actually… life is pretty great. Sure–we could use more family time and date nights, but overall we are pretty much living the dream.  Violet’s in daycare M-W-F… we get to have our mommy-daughter days on T-Th and the weekends (I’m trying my HARDEST) to reserve for family now that the cabin is finished (pics to come soon).  My Wildtree business has become a bigger player in our lives. Its strange to say it, but I feel like I can make such a bigger impact with families on nutrition and meal planning than I feel with photography right now. Not to mention leaving a bigger legacy for me and my family… so photography has taken a backseat at the moment.  I guess that’s the beauty of being your own boss, right?  Ultimate flexibility. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

 

We leave today for Utah for a week to raft with Dad (Violet will be staying with Grandma Barb, which she is totally PSYCHED for). But as a heads up… my first available sessions are now end of September into October. So if you would like to get the ball rolling on penciling a date, just let me know. Use the contact tab up top!

Happy Summer,

Stacy
