karaphotogirl When you go camping with @haleighrohner and the sunset looks like this, a silhouette begs to be taken. Thankfully, the kids were totally into it. Such a beautiful weekend 🌲 #campAZ #loveourbigkids 3d

karaphotogirl Crazy hair day & playing Chinese Jumprope at recess?! What could be better? Even the boys wanted to get in on the fun! So cool to see them genuinely interested and cheering each other on. The boys get to go first the next time at recess since the bell rang before some of them had their turn 🏻. This is childhood. 5d

karaphotogirl She asked to be woken up 2 hours before leaving for school today. She was a bundle of excitement and nerves this morning as she got ready for school. Hours of her time have been spent on this Science Project , every spare moment she had was spent on researching the planets. And every time she told me a cool fact about Uranus, I had to make a joke about it (I'm immature). I only helped her glue the planets to her dress and I helped her make the cupcakes she brought to school to share. The cupcake frosting represented the galaxy and inside the kids had to guess what planet they got. I wish I took a photo of those. I have one mid-baking I can share. Anyway, I've never seen her so consumed and excited about a school project before, so I had to take lots of photos this morning. 2w

karaphotogirl In 1998 I was told by my Doctor I wouldn't be able to have kids, Jeff married me knowing that. With medical help, I got pregnant in 2002! When Ty was born...I was shocked my little baby looked like a baby (I was sure I was going to have a little alien) with blonde hair and peaches'n cream skin. Being adopted myself, I had never seen anyone who shared MY genes. It was surreal to say the least and I couldn't stop staring at him. I cried everyday for the first 3 weeks (ask my mom, she had to deal with my frantic daily tears). And Brielle, my fireball, was born with a thick head of brown-black hair and olive skin. She had stork bites on her face and brow and on the back of her neck. Even today every time I put her hair in a ponytail my hand brushes across the one on her neck. She's my nature lover, care-giving girl.
I miss my kids when they're at school - they're my fun, my entertainment, and they make me who I am today. I love their hearts. Ty still comes up and puts his hands around my neck randomly or hugs me casually. I love it.
This weekend Jeff May took us (and his mom and dad) to the mountains for a fun weekend away. We hiked, made sling-shots, carved spears and had a spear throwing contest (Ty won), played 1-4-24, played spoons till our hands hurt and just spent time together. The best Mother's Day yet!

karaphotogirl Homework....it's whatcha do #ifyoureakid trying to capture life as it happens. I want my kids to remember the every day moments of childhood, school days, and just being. So more 'in the moment' photos is my goal this year with them... No matter how boring. And I'll capture Ty in his every day moments of he'll let me (hint hint Ty, if you're reading this 🏻). 4w
  •   byjess Love those moments but so hard to get the teenagers in the shot. Most of the time people think I have 2 kids but I have 5 because the teenagers won't let me photograph them...but they'll snapchat photos of themselves all day long 4w
