Letter to my daughter: Nine months later

Dear Emma,

Where do I start? You growing soo fast! I can't believe nine months have already gone by & it seems like just yesterday I laid eyes on you as they put you in my arms. Let me tell you, that was the happiest day of my life. Immediately you filled my heart with love & I couldn't stop starring at you!

And here we are, nine months later & I'm still smitten. Your now crawling & cruising from the coffee table to the couch and back again. Others say you will be walking very soon. Although you had your first taste of solids at five months, now your really eating food every couple of hours. So far you've liked everything I have offered - thank you for not being a picky eater like me :) You love chicken soup & sweet potatoes! And water which makes me very happy. Another thing you LOVE to do is wave at pretty much the whole world. Everywhere we go, you wave. You give me wet kisses that I wish I could bottle up. You also get very excited when I say "Papi is home"which let me tell you, makes him forget how tired he his. Your favorite song at the moment is "On top of spaghetti" & "Two little birds". You have your own dialect that you only share with certain people here's a snippet below:

You always wake up with a smile on your face & I love it... today in particular you were standing on your crib making a sound as you pointed towards the tutu that I made you when you were just three months. So I decided to put it on you and snap a couple pictures. To celebrate all the joy you have brought to "Papi" & I these past nine months, I gifted you with your first camera. I have a feeling photography might grow on you ;)

All about silly faces! 

Had to get Troy [aka Em's bodyguard] into a picture too :)

bye, bye!

Baby girl, daddy& I love you very much. Your our BIG blessing from above! We thank God every chance we get for the gift of being your parents.

Love you more than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow - Mum

the ah-mazing camera was  purchased on Etsy :)

Fall Portraits: Time to book is Now

Seriously, this has to be the first time in a looong time that I'm actually looking forward to the fall & winter. Boots & scarfs have never sounded soo good. The temperature here in Southern California has been a little higher than normal the past couple of weeks. Something we Californian's are not use to, you guessed it - hot weather! You know, its been at least 85 degrees, we are sooo spoiled here!

Anyway, as summer is quickly coming to an end & the children are heading back to school its the perfect time to schedule your Fall session! Especially if you are planning to use your pictures for Christmas like I always do. Its a great way to document your growing family & preserve your memories forever.

I love for my clients to display their beautiful images, so a print credit for an 8x10 will be added to those that book before September 21st! Session MUST be paid in full to secure date & must take place before Thanksgiving so you can have them for Christmas cards!

Feel free to share this info if you know someone who may be interested in portraits.

 Looking forward to hearing from you!

New logo revealed!

It's been a long time coming... I've been looking forward to this day for a while now. For the past couple of weeks I've been working with the fabulous Ashley from thorn + sparrow to help me design a logo that represent my style. I just love what she came up with and it's finally time to reveal!!!

At first I didn't realize how challenging it would be to narrow it down, but I think it represents me & my brand perfectly! I can't say enough how ah-mazing Ashley is and grateful for her patience which made this process less stressful. She was very sweet & helped me organize all my thoughts :) Its sooo unique I'm in LOVE!

Without further ado...........

I'd love to hear what you think :) Don't forget to check out thorn + sparrow too!

Happy Wednesday <3's
