When your youngest (and likely your last) baby turns 1, it can bring up some mixed emotions. So, while we were celebrating this little man’s first birthday, we were also talking throughout the session about how this mama of three was feeling, now that her littlest wasn’t so little anymore. Personally, I am always in such awe of moms with more than two. I have two and find the balancing act a little overwhelming at times, so anymore than that brings you to superhero status in my eyes. Especially if you still manage to look put together most days!

This mama even took it another level and started a really cute blog, Polite as Fudge (which might be the best name ever)… so make sure to check it out. After you breeze through the highlights from their shoot, of course.

I’m soaking in every minute we have left of this beautiful springtime in SoCal. The hours I spend pulling stickers from my socks and blankets after a shoot are well worth the images we capture in this gorgeous golden grass. Also, just slowing down to feel the breeze through your hair, and to soak in all the sun-shining goodness while your kids toddle around and explore… I mean, it just doesn’t get much better than this.

Sometimes you just have to laugh at how chaotic your life becomes as a parent. Luckily, I get to do it with my dear friends/clients. We shoot, and chat, and laugh, and sometimes cry… and then laugh again. We feel all the feelings, you know. But man, when we find those quiet, loving moments in-between and freeze them in time, there isn’t a better gift to give yourself – and your children. I think seeing those happy moments framed on the wall really helps get through the hard days, I know they help me! Cheers, to all the messy parts of parenthood – and all the beauty that comes along with it.

Nothing says fun like walking to get fresh donuts first thing in the morning. YUM. My favorite type of shoot, is the one where I simply follow you on an outing that is authentic to your family. In this case, mornings at the Farmers Market are a quite common, and while donuts are a special treat – what better occasion than this! This mama wasn’t kidding when she told me her little girl really comes to life when she gets to have her favorite sweet treat. I had so much fun documenting this special time for them.
