Sailing into the weekend like...✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday my friends -- share some of your weekend vibes with me, what are you looking forward to?
There are people out in the world that you do life with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These two are some of those people. My husband has been doing life with this guy since they were in high school and I have been doing life with these two for over 10 years. We have been to each other's weddings, traveled to far off places together, been pregnant and have entered into the realm of parenthood together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friendships like this are few and far between and I consider myself lucky to have found them. I am even luckier that they let me take their photos when our kids aren't around. 😍
Holidays in Southern California are definitely different than when I was growing up back East. I mean, beach days in December? Not complaining though, it's pretty awesome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you believe we are less than TWO weeks away from the most anticipated holiday of the year!? I'm usually finished with holiday shopping by now, but work has me so busy I am almooooost there. Friends, are YOU done with all of your holiday to-do lists?
We won't live forever, but our stories will. This is my why -- the reason I choose to do what I do, the reason I am fiercly passionate about what I do and the reason that I am grateful that I get to do what I do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your why -- share with me the reason why you choose to do what you do? ❤️
My favorite part of holiday minis is catching up with my families who have been with me since the beginning. Lucky me, I spent this past weekend with these two lovelies, whom I have been taking photos of since they were newborn babes. ❤️#theseareafewofmyfavoritethings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Monday friends! What are a few of your favorite things that you love about what you do?
Saturday vibes right here. #scooteroo
Happy Friday my friends! I hope you're going into the weekend in your fancy wear, because why not? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you looking forward to this weekend? Share your weekend vibes with me! ❤️ (see full image in stories)
The annual obligatory photo -- how else are you going to talk to the big man about what you want for Christmas? Mama wants to lose 20 lbs., daddy wants the Angels to win the World Series, and he just wants his parents to stop making him wear ugly Christmas sweaters. Not too much to ask? 🤷🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what are YOU wishing for this holiday season?
That moment when you fell in love all over again. Do you remember it? ❤️
When you find yourself basking in that golden hour light. ✨
For some reason this year, the holiday season seems to have started early. This past weekend, I kept feeling that I was late to the holiday decorating game, but realized it's only December 3rd! In between my sessions, my family and I got our holiday decorating in -- picked up a tree, put up the lights, and decorated the house! We are officially ready for Christmas...now if only I could get it together for the annual holiday card. 🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, tell me about your holiday traditions! Amongst the many we have, one of them is that we always tie our visit to Santa in with a dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant. Share your favorite holiday tradition with me! Happy Monday friends! 🎄
“Because brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone.” – Jolene Perry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A bond like theirs is a pretty amazing -- after every session with them, I love to sit back and watch them interact -- it's simply delightful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday friends. I hope you get to spend this weekend with awesome people. Today is my Monday...sessions start again tonight and I won't come up for air until two Mondays from now. Don't worry, I promise to stretch. 😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you guys up to this weekend? Send me some weekend vibes! ✨
Good words and good vibes coming at you this Thursday.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thankful for this rain we're getting in Southern California, we've been needing it for quite some time and Mother Earth definitely did not disappoint. Sending some healing vibes out to those affected by the fires --- hoping these rains don't cause more damage. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, sending a reminder out there to be thoughful, present, kind, full of grace and grateful all the days! How are you making a difference today? #thoughtfulthursday
This impending rain and gloom have me thinking back on our time in San Francisco a week ago. We packed for our 4-day trip, making sure we fit every single thing we needed into a small backpack that fits under the airplane seat. This meant, no work camera for the trip unless I decided to wear one less pair of pants while on vacation. 🤷🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'll be honest, sometimes I don't want to worry about taking the perfect photo, I just want to live in the moment and be present with those around me. Sometimes, I don't want to spend time seeking out the best light, composing the best photo and worrying about what it's going to look like when I download it to my computer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was a nice mental break from the work life -- I didn't have to worry about the perfect photo or even taking a photo. I got to turn my photographer brain off for FOUR days and it was awesome. What wasn't awesome? The quality of the photos...but oh well, I had a great time -- met the locals, chatted with other travellers and enjoyed the adventure. And besides, all the smoke from the fires and the fog that rolls in through the city, I couldn't see the Golden Gate Bridge at all. Figures. 😝 #photoglife #lightchaser ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, how do you take a take a break from your career? Are you able to completely step away for a while or are you always, kind of working? Oh and let's not talk about how this image does NOT work with the aesthetic of my feed. C'est la vie and all that. 😜
