In today’s post, I want to share one thing about me that maybe not many of you know. You know how people always ask little kids what they want to be when they grow up? Well, my answer was always a firm INDIANA JONES. I’m not super sure as to why I was so stuck on being Indy but it must have been the sense of adventure I perceived from the movies. I wanted to travel and discover new and unique artifacts, just like him. As Ellie gets older, I wonder about what her aspirations will be. I wonder if she’ll take on to a spirit of adventure just like me. What will she like? What will inspire her? I’d love to hear from all of you. What did you all want to be when you were kids? If you can’t remember, what is one thing that inspires you?

Family goals ❤️ Rose’s 60th birthday surprise went without a hitch! I think it’s special that the kids wanted to gift their mom a portrait session. What better way to celebrate than capturing it on camera? See my story today for more of their session. Also, I’m still booking Christmas sessions! If you’re interested, DM me and I’ll get right to you! Happy Thursday!
We were in a local marketplace store that were filled with beautiful bags of all shapes and sizes. There were so many I just could not decide. Guatemala sure has a way of making beautiful bags I’ll tell ya! Then Calli showed it to me. My eyes grew wide and thought to myself, oh I want that one. “This will make a great diaper bag, don’t you think?” She asked. While I stared at this beauty I thought, yup that’s exactly what it could be for.. but I’m not pregnant and that totally made me sad. Fast forward several months later to when I found out I was expecting. I knew exactly what one of my first purchases was going to be. So I looked up one of my favorite little shops, @storyweavermercantile and contacted Calli and FINALLY got this bag in my hands! This is a perfect mommy bag and I carry it around everywhere! It’s spacious and has several pockets including the outside for bottles and other baby things. Not to mention it reminds me of my time spent with the ladies of @_thethrivecollective and @storyweavermercantile. If you have some time check out their sites! They have lots of pretty little things! #momswithcameras #momtogs #travelingmom #momsthattravel #momsanddaughters #huffingtonpostparents #diaperbag #guatemalantextiles #flashesofdelight #fairtradefashion #fairtradejewelry #mommyandme #southerncalifornialifestyle #southerncaliforniaphotographer #redlandsca #redlandsphotographer #yucaipaphotographer #inlandempirephotographer #riversidephotographer #ranchocucamongaphotographer
The other day Jordan picked Ellie up from the place I was working out and headed home. On the way out a random lady yelled out, “Woohoo! You’re an MVP! Go dad! The mom lets you take her out by yourself? That’s awesome!” I sort of have mixed feelings about this. For one, Jordan IS an MVP for being an awesome dad. However, one of the things Jordan said after this was, “Man, Nathalie took care of Ellie all day, she took her to the doctor, had lunch with me, then went to coach softball (with Ellie), and I get the MVP award just because I’m a dad taking care of my child so my wife can have 1 hour to work out by herself?” Maybe it’s just me, but I feel that expectations are not set very high for dads. “Mom let’s you take the baby by yourself?” What is that? Of course I do! I do not trust anyone more than him. And what about moms getting a cheer from a random person for all that WE do?! We deserve to be called MVPs too! It’s like it’s expected for me to be with my child and take care of her, but not dad? Does anyone feel the same as I do? If you have any thoughts on the matter I’d love to hear them! #thisismytribe #fathersanddaughters #dadsforthewin #flashesofdelight #candidchildhood #ourcandidlife #treasuringlittlememories #thelifestylecollective #momtogs #momswithcameras #communityovercompetition #tilinsiders #cameramama #torreypinesbeach #sandiegophotographer #redlandsphotographer #littlememories #huffingtonpostparents #parentlife
