One of the best parts of my job is that sometimes, I get to bring my kiddo to work with me! Love when a session turns into a play date. 😍As he gets older, it gets easier to bring him with...because y'know...listening ears and all that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We had a busy, fun-filled weekend seeing friends, spending time with each other and I even balanced it out with some work. Now to relax...but just remembered it's Monday. 😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what's on the To Do list today that you're planning on checking off? Monday's are for fresh starts!
Why so serious? Smile, it's Saturday!
Grateful to have been photographing this family over the span of the last eight years. Watching the kids grow up in front of my lens has been a pleasure and an honor. It makes me thankful for the relationships that have been created because I get to do what I love to do and people, like this family, let me. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The way I'm feeling about them is exactly how I feel about today being Friday. Friends, I hope your weekend is filled with awesomeness and delight! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So tell me, what is it about what you do that makes you feel grateful and alive? Would love it if you shared it with me! XO
Only two more sleeps until I get to spend most of the weekend with these two favorites of mine. Although they probably are too busy wrestling to even notice that I'm around...until one of them gets hungry. 💁🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what are you looking forward to this weekend? And for my southern California peeps, what are you doing to beat this crazy heat!? 🔥🔥🔥 #myfamily #storyofmylife
It's Wednesday (I think) - I'm currently sweaty, dirty, tired and need more coffee...because hump day, because summer, because kid camp...because...and all that. 🤷🏻♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite it all, I'm a firm believer that if you can't laugh in parenthood (at yourself, at your child, and with others), then it probably wouldn't be worth it. Am I right, friends? 🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's the funniest part of the parenthood game for you?
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This kid is experiencing his first summer camp this week, from hiking, making bubbles, and mud...oh there is SO. MUCH. MUD. 😩 We also experienced our first AYSO soccer practice today, and I may or may not have signed on as the Team Mom. Like Eleanor mentioned above...newer and richer experiences...that means wine, right!? 🤷🏻♀️ #momlife *View the entire image in stories 👆🏼
Noble and great. Courageous and determined. Faithful and fearless. That is who you are and who you have always been. And understanding it can change your life, because this knowledge carries a confidence that cannot be duplicated any other way. ― Sheri L. Dew ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mondays are for being confident and kicking some butt. What are your goals this week? Happy Monday friends!
Sleeping in is for the weekend...wake up little boo, it's Friday and time to celebrate! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what's in store for you this weekend? 🎉✨
Thursdays are meant for keeping it simple...because we're just one day closer to the weekend...am I right!? Totally feeling this vibe right now - what do you do to make yourself happy? #thursdayvibes
I know, I know...this post is NOT the same tonal scheme as the rest of the images on this feed...but oh well. 🤷🏻♀️ I celebrated my 40th yesterday with my awesome hubby - yes, a nice, intimate and quiet entry into the 40th year of life. It was perfection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all of my friends and family who left social media messages, phone calls, voicemails, text messages, and mailed a card...thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am a lucky girl to be loved by such fabulous people. I am grateful for all of you and hope that our paths cross sometime in the near future. Cheers to you. XO . #thisisforty
Mondays call for the color blue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Blue seeks peace and tranquility and promotes physical and mental relaxation. The color blue reduces stress and creates a sense of calmness, relaxation and order. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Annnnnd you're welcome. I hope you've all had an amazing weekend. What does this week have in store for you?
Beach days only please 😎
Fridays make me think about relaxing, relaxing makes me long for vacation, vacation makes me think about our last camp trip when we were one with nature. Our last camp trip reminds me of the only family photo we remembered to take before we left. 🤷🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else think about vacation when Friday comes around? What are you all up to this weekend? 😘
Two reasons why I would be as happy as she is...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • It's almost the weekend!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • When you're fashion sense is bad ass.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Thursday friends! What is making you smile today? 🤩
