I hope you all enjoyed your day off! Monday was beautiful here, so while Lucca napped,  Lyla and I enjoyed some peanut butter cookies on the porch. Spring is coming.. I can feel it! Lyla is looking so old in these pictures and getting so tall. At three… Picking out her clothes, mostly lives in dresses and loves her new shoes… and wants a snack all day long. I almost think she can eat just as much as I do. Good thing she eats her veggies because she definitely has a sweet tooth.  My sister Leah started her etsy shop selling handmade girly things.. mostly headbands and bows… you can shop her etsy or find them here on Instagram.

Hope you all have a great and short week! xo

We are professional photographers, photographing beautiful people on their most inspiring perfect wedding day. I also cut hair for a living which requires perfection… or at least that is what I was taught. The truth is, I don’t comb my girl’s hair every day, and when I became a mom of two, bath time happened less, along with cleaning my floors, and I became overwhelmed with “keeping up”.  It took me about 9 months to figure out how to be a mom of two, all while keeping up with two careers, a husband, being a friend and a blogger- which can only be a part time hobby.  Yes, there was anxiety and everyday I have to check my priority list and make sure they are in line- my list, not my kids ( although that happens too, ha!).  As I write here and create content for this little space of mine on the internet, I strive to be real, authentic, and not just honest with you, but myself.  My life is so far from perfect and neither are my kids. We have lots of good days, but there are days when I feel like I can’t do it all. That is normal and I’m more than okay to say that.  I love that they, and we as a family, are perfectly imperfect. This is us and I wouldn’t change it for anything. I want to create a life for my family that is full of community, full of memories, filled with laughter and most of all full of love.

Today,  My sweet Lyla.  (3 years old + 3 months) Becoming wiser and wiser as three year olds do, and your beauty is breath-taking.  You are sweet and silly and so independent.  You ask me to close your door so you can play and imagine and sing and dance in your room. We laugh because you are more like me and so many times I see myself in you.  You my dear are perfectly imperfect and I am so proud of who you are becoming. My little social butterfly, I am excited to watch you fly.

My sweet Lucca.  ( 1 year + 8 months) You are my sweetheart. You are gentle and kind and love to give us kisses. You love your sister and look for her right when you wake.  You love shoes and books and love to be held close. You are shy and not trusting of just anyone. You loyal heart is so tender. You my dear are beautiful inside and out.

  • nobody’s perfect but, anyways, it might be sooo boring… your children are beautiful outside and i’m sure they’re beautiful inside too.ReplyCancel

I recently start making Blurb“>Blurb wedding albums for some of our brides and love everything about them.  We made ours after we got married and still love looking at it 5 years later!   Its nothing huge, but a simple, classic, timeless coffee table-type album with the perfect Oatmeal colored cover.   There are tons of albums on the market now, and I have to agree that it can be intimidating to research all of them!  Then it can be even harder to sit and start making it perfect, especially if it is from your wedding day.  We don’t make a lot of albums for our couples, only because Blurb makes it so simple, any one can do it and we often encourage our couples to do it themselves!   Honestly, there is nothing better than to show your images through an album.   Now that digital cameras are so easy to use, digital files typically get stored up inside of your computer for years.  We love that albums truly make pictures come alive and can tell the story of your special day.    We gave Brent’s mom a album for Christmas, and she cried. It meant so much to her and something she will cherish forever.

If you are thinking about Valentines day, or making a wedding album, or maybe a vacation from 2014.. you can create a one-of-a-kind custom photo book from Blurb.  Honestly, it is so simple with their book-making tools. You can add photos, words, stories, drawings—anything you want.  We love that Blurb cares about our images and the quality is great. This book will last forever and I love being able to share our wedding day album with my girls thanks to Blurb. { This is a sponsored post }

Sweater: Blu Pepper // Jeans: PacSun (Bullhead) Loving this wash // Scarf: Jcrew (Similar) // Boots: BDG (Similar)

Its been quite awhile since I did a “Wear/Fashion” post,  which I  miss!  I love doing them  and it helps me think about my outfits a bit more in the morning. The only problem is don’t shop a lot! But,  maybe once a month could work for my budget and wardrobe!  I actually scored these shoes at a local thrift shop!  They are the similar to the ones I linked (I have those too ) and they are both BDG,  which I usually find online at Urban Outfitters!  And this sweater, my current favorite was a Christmas gift (handpick) by Brent! He did good. (really good!)   So, I am hoping to get back into the fashion posts again this year …but no promises just fingers crossed!! It was sunny and beautiful so we all wanted to be outside!  Oh and Lyla actually wanted to join in on my fun. Which, of course I always welcome!! She has been my sidekick lately, especially when I am running errands!  ( I posted a few on my Instagram )

This week has been long. I got the flu on Sunday and was in bed till late Wednesday. Thankfully, Im better and we are off to  Santa Cruz for the weekend to celebrate Brent’s birthday. We  are due for a vacation..no work, just fun in our favorite little town!  Hope you all have a great weekend! xo

My littlest turned 20 months after Christmas. It almost seems impossible that she is closer to two than one!! Life is getting so easy with her and she loves to laugh and play and getting more and more independent.. We were thrilled to become “brand reps” for Scout Folks.. (actually Lyla did)… but we stole this shirt for Lucca today.. because thats what sisters are for right?! Thank you Ally!! We love it!!

Shirt: c/o Scout Folks // Leggings: Target  – gotta love $5.00 leggings ! // Boots: Target ( No longer available)
