Tomorrow is the day!! 🌸 We’ll be announcing dates for the almond blossom sessions and info on how to sign up. There will only be a limited amount of spots available as they are only in bloom for a very short while!! Also, these sessions will be taking place in Woodland (Northern California) so if you’re up for a little getaway to this magical destination for some epic photos...better get ready to make some magic happen!! ✨😍
One of the last photos snapped about an hour ago!! 😱❤️😍 Such a pretty sunset tonight! Loved working with Cat & Josh and it was so fun really getting to know them on this shoot (since we didn’t have much time to have full conversations while they were bridal party members in past weddings I’ve photographed)! 😜 Josh was a groomsmen in the stunning Hawaii destination wedding I photographed 5 years ago! Time flies...what a great night. 🤗💕
Alright guys...we’re doing it!! 😩🙈😬 I haven’t ran a half marathon in over 5 years and it’s safe to say, ya girl got OUT. OF. SHAPE. for reallll... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But you wanna know the craziest part about this picture?! Pat & I had just finished running 13.1 miles and I was so proud of us!! I threw my hands in the air and as soon as I noticed photos being taken, a little voice in the back of my head told me...”the photos will probably turn out better if you hide your flabby arms”. 😒 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve gained and lost and gained many pounds since this photo was taken. And I look back at this girl & wish she would have embraced every inch of her body & celebrated its strengths, instead of letting those insecurities ruin beautiful moments in her life. 🙅🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So this year, I’m gonna run another half marathon. And I’m gonna embrace the flabby arms, the thunder thighs and every imperfection that society tells us we’re supposed to be embarrassed of. I’m gonna exercise self love. And I’m gonna run to be healthy, not to reach a certain number on the scale. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And one day, maybe 5 years from now...I hope to look back at THOSE photos and remember how present I was. How I wasn’t worrying about hiding my body. I hope I look back and remember celebrating all that this body is capable of and what it will achieve. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏃🏻♀️💨 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sooo...March 10th! San Diego Half Marathon! Who’s down!? Please don’t let me suffer all by myself. 😜 We need some running buddies! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎉🤗🏅
Are you the New Years Resolution type? Did you write down your goals for 2019? Not gonna lie...I did NOT accomplish all (not even half) of my goals I made for 2018. I’m kinda thinking about taking a new approach this year. Focusing on what I can accomplish each day. Wake up and do the best I can. Learn more. Give more. Grow more. Serve more. Do the things that bring me happiness and fulfillment. Become a better person. And some days will suck, but that’s ok. I’ll wake up the next day and try again. ☺️ What’s your approach to New Year’s resolutions? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Coordinator: @coutureevents Photographer: @charissamagno Floral Design: @thelittlefleurco Venue: @loewscoronado Makeup: @makeupbykandice Cakes: @sweetcheeksbakingco Rentals: @farmtablesandmore La Tavola Linen: @wildflowerlinen Paper Suite: @krisannaelizabeth Bride Shoes: @bellabelleshoes Bridal Salon: @mbride Groom Suit: @friartux Model: @thelifeoflibs Backdrop: @backupbackdrops Backdrop Signage: @theconfettihome Macarons: @madewithextralove Ribbon: @silkandwillow Ring Box: @the_mrs_box
New Years Eve...VS 👉🏼 the rest of 2018. 🤣🙈 People ask me why I don’t wear my hair down more often. THIS is why. 😑😩 And also...probably because I grew up with 3 older brothers, always on the basketball court & hair in a messy bun 24/7. (The best hair style in my opinion)! 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometime in the next few months, I think I’m gonna make the CHOP! 🙌🏼💁🏻♀️✂️💇🏻♀️ (Last photos are the styles I’m currently loving).

Happy New Year ❤️🎉🥂from our little family to yours!! @pat.magno #NalaThePittyPup 🐶
