my sweet little Wolf


a few weeks ago, my friend Leah Verwey came over to take some photos of Wolf.  they turned out pretty amazing and I wanted to share them with you.  Wolf is just such joy lately, smiling and being extra cute, so he was a natural in front of the camera!  here are a few of my favorites.


I’m so so happy to have theses photos.  it makes me want photos of our little family at every stage of Wolf’s life. since either Levi or myself is always the one taking photos, it was so nice to have Leah come over to photograph us in our space. we just went about our usual routine interacting with Wolf and I absolutely love how they turned out.


Leah is a Portland based wedding and commercial photographer.  be sure to check out her blog and her other project, Space PDX for some more beautiful photos.  thanks again, Leah!!

    Love the photos of your little man. He’s sooo cute! We’re expecting a girl in Sept. and are very excited to finally meet her. I was wondering where you got the moses basket in one of the photos. We’ve been hunting for one that’s simple yet cosy and your looks perfect.
