In 2014, I am resolving to blog {more} and to do so about things I am truly passionate about – family, the South, heirlooms – I’ll start there and keep it simple. And so, here’s to my first post of the new year!

I gave you a sneak peek a while back from our Love Bug shoot with my favorite photographer, Heidi from Our Labor of Love and the adorable children’s shop Seed Factory here in Atlanta.

As Heidi pointed out to me, this shoot is not my typical aesthetic – simple, clean, white. I go more for the setting, outdoors, rustic, layered. But the premise of the Love Bug shoots are to capture the pure joy of children, their favorite toy and to let them simply play and be themselves. Wyatt brought his sweet tiger Jellycat. And, the photos that resulted show my sweet two-year old just as he is – happy, sweet, silly and full of energy.

Here’s to 2014!
