We are beyond excited to announce...we are ADOPTING! We shared the news on my personal social media on Valentine’s Day and couldn’t be more humbled by the love and support of our tribe. We are at the very beginning stages and will be adopting an infant here in California. In awe our babe could already be brewing and our hearts ache for the brave and selfless birth mom making such a hard decision. A blog post will be up tonight and will shine light on how we came to this BIG decision as a family. We would love for you to PRAY with us this year as we work on #bringinghomebabydub 💕 #infantadoption #adopttogether
Happy Friday!! Friday’s are the down days in our casa. We fill the weeks with zoo class (tot time), music class and I am a work from home momma Tuesday/Thursday’s which usually includes computer work #momboss and maintaining our home #housewife I haven’t done a Friday introductions in awhile so I thought I’d say hello! Here are a few nuggets about me. 1. I can never pass up a good cookie. 2. I am constantly finding the balance being a mommy and a business owner. 3. I choose being outside in the sunshine over being indoors. 4. I challenge myself to make bold leaps of faith, even when it makes me uncomfortable #dohardthings 5. My husband is my favorite person on the planet and I’ve been obsessed with him since I was 12 💕 Tell me a thing or two about YOU in the comments 😘💃🏼
This time last year I was preparing my heart and mind for the trip of a lifetime with @thearchibaldproject to Ethiopia. Little did i know @selamtaproject and my #tapethiopiayall team would change my life and how I view the world around me. Looking back with a heart of gratitude.
Had the absolute most magical time in DisneyWorld this week with our sweet family and friends. Such a great trip at the perfect age for Corbin Lee. He did amazing on his first plane ride and made traveling even more fun and exciting. Don’t be afraid to travel with your kiddos. It’s SO worth it! #disneyworld
Another peek for this beautiful momma. Growing with my brides is one of my most favorite things. She is absolutely stunning in her new role!
Gosh tonight was pretty. Sometimes I get this phone in my hand and get sucked into Insta-land. I compare and doubt and get inspired and tear myself down and go down the rabbit hole that is social media. Then I something magical happens. I step outside and breathe in the fresh evening air and put a camera in my hand....and for a moment all is right in the world. My soul needs this art form. It’s the very fabric of who I am. When I take a break or focus too much on the business side, a piece of me literally aches to create. So here is a reminder to all artists. Do it for you. Do it for them. Create for the sake of creating. Make images. Make art. Push boundaries. Do it to fill up your soul. Because these images...they mean everything.
Who is ready for BLOOM sessions? DM me with your email to snag a spot. Tentatively booking the last week or so of February. My absolute favorite season to shoot in! There is something so magical about frolicking through the almond trees. As for spring, my weekends are filling up quickly. I’d love to get your sweet family on the calendar! It’s an investment you’ll never regret 💕🌿🌱
Reading through quotes from MLK this morning with thankfulness for his life and people who choose to live like him. “Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Praying our lives can be a reflection of that. Choose to live boldly and take daring risks. Be all in. Easy to say and agree, but a surge of fear and excitement flows through my veins when I let myself go there. When I challenge myself to think what I can do to live this out. It’s terrifying and exhilarating. But I think all good things worth pursuing in life are. #kimigthoughts
