Beautiful bonding moment between mom and son. 💖 A morning filled with serenity and a few giggles here and there.
Bringing love, beauty and helping elegantly display these moments for new families is a complete dream. I never really had a big idea of what my career would be growing up, but once I was able to find my genus zone during newborn sessions, it was the most powerful shift in my life. If you haven’t found your genus zone, you must. It gives life this whole new meaning that this is exactly what I was meant to do in mine. I love these truly beautiful moments! Have you figured out your genus zone?! I’d love to know what inspires you!
Today is the last day of school for my kids. I am completely terrified how I’m going to keep them entertained all summer but we are all so excited and ready for new summer adventures. What are your favorite summer things to do with kids? A few of ours are, going to all the museums, stopping @mollyscupcakes -then walking to the zoo, finding new yummy places to eat...and scouting new photo locations in all the corners of the Chicagoland area.
Loving this sweet little folio album. Wrapped in a soft linen gives a delicate touch to any space.
To the world you are a mother, but to your family you are the world. As cheesy as this may be, it is the truth. They rely, depend and look up to you right now because you make everything possible for them.
Photos of us with our parents, how do they make you feel? Being able to get a glimpse of what you looked like as a family and the love in your parents eyes is an incredible thing to have, isn’t it? #mondayphotoseries
Imagine- your digital files EXPIRED? “Wait, Cristina, what does that mean?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes girl, all digital storage media has a short life. I hate to talk so negatively but, hard drives crash; hosting websites go out of business; and CD’s are halfway out the door. How long will you go on with this endless digital media crisis... Head over to my recent post on how to keep your files from expiring on you AND a special offer in my profile.
What topics on motherhood do you want to hear more of? Anxiety? At home Mama Tips? Birthing experience? Mindful reminders to keep you going through pregnancy? What questions do you have that you don’t know who to ask?
“Our moms are always there for us, even during our “I hate everything and everyone” phase. Looking back at this photo of me and my mom makes me come to realize how important her presence was during this time of my life. It creates this rush of love and appreciation for her within me.” —Katie D., Mother
Motherhood is embracing the chaos and living for those tender moments.
I love these socks so much I bought the matching mommy and me set 🙈 . . Looks like spring has arrived because all the bunnies are coming out 🐇🐰
...repost... “I remember this moment like it was yesterday. @_cristinahope told me to lay my cheek on tiny little Ben and when I did, I couldn’t help but sob. Those postpartum hormones are real and I had (and still have) so much love for this baby that it literally hurts. When I saw this picture weeks later I laughed and said I can’t believe she kept it, and now I couldn’t be more thankful that she did. She captured a moment in time that meant so much to me as I sit here and reminisce, I can’t help but to cry again. When people tell you that you are going to feel love like you’ve never felt before, they aren’t lying. ♥️” This heart tugging post @amandapanda1015 wrote is so beautiful. It makes even ME cry because that’s how emotional I get being a part of a family’s new journey. I am long past having little babies of my own but living everyday, experiencing these moments with my families - is truly a blessing. I live to capture these exact memories just for you.
