Stay Little.

Stay Little.

After having 4 kiddos & mom-ing for 12 years now, I'm definitely ready for everyone to be out of diaper and more self sufficient, but I love these sweet moments with my little girl.  The littlest of my 4 kids and the only girl.  I just want to hold onto every moment with this fiery two year old.  By the way, she's OBSESSED with sink baths.  Like literally she takes 2 a day, minimum, but she would prefer about 20 a day.

Summer = Life in the Pool.

Summer = Life in the Pool.

During the summer, we pretty much live in the pool.  I've been a mom for 12 years now and I must say, I'm so so so ready to hit that time when I can relax in the pool on a floatie instead of having kids hanging all over me.  lol!  We're almost there, maybe one more summer if being everyones personal floatie, I think everyone will be independent enough next year.  This summer we did decide to start using the gopro more!  My kids always want to make videos or absolutely nothing basically, but I tried to sneak in some cool shots in between videos of the bottom of the pool.  lol!  This summer our French Bulldog Frank also learned how to swim, that was exciting!  I'm definitely excited school is back in session and 3 out of 4 children are in school this year!  One more to go!  Check out some of our summer go pro shots below!

Maddox Turns Two! Dirt Session | Jamul, CA

Maddox Turns Two! Dirt Session | Jamul, CA

Wow, it feels amazing to be back!  This was my first session after officially returning, and so nice to see a familiar face!  The last time I'd seen Maddox was for his 1st Birthday cake smash session.  His mom decided since he's all boy, we needed to do a dirty boy session, complete with dirt, tires & a tractor!  I had my dad make us some dirt piles in my back yard with his tractor and we rounded up some old tires.  I think I ended up dirtier than he did!  lol!  I got a head full of dirt, but all worth it for some good dirt shots!

I'm baaaaack!

Wow, it has been a busy few months!  I took a few months off.  Life was crazy.  I was running two businesses, my husband had heart failure and had to have his heart shocked, I broke my foot, and all in the middle of baseball season.  I had to step back and focus on my family for a while.  But, I'm BACK!  My foot is still broken and my life is still chaos, but I couldn't stay away from what I love.  I will be back on a very limited basis due to my husbands new work schedule and my kids travel baseball team schedule.  I've adjusted my pricing for 2017 to reflect my extremely limited availability, you can find that on the investment page.  I'm also currently not booking any weddings, due to the fact that it's just hard to strep away from my family for that long of a period of time, as well as the fact that my broken foot isn't healed and really might not be the same for quite some time, so while I can walk, I definitely couldn't be on it all day for a wedding.  I have missed all of my clients so much.  Some of you have found new photographers while I took time off and I completely understand, but I hope I'll get to see your smiling faces again soon.  I've missed being able to be creative, and I'm so excited for some new things to come this year in my business and photography style.  Here's to a great summer!
