Well I have made some amazing friends from my moms group, I mean these women are the best!!!  Terry and I spend a lot of time together, our kids are around the same age and we like the same workouts and gyms and we have about a billion things in common…..I could go on all day.  I love this family dearly and I can’t believe I am posting this from a last years session….Here you go!

Bonnie is a dear friend of mine and it was an honor photographing her beautiful family!  Bonnie was pregnant with her 3rd child here, at the time they did not know the gender, they chose to keep it a surprise!  Also she is tiny!!!!  Baby Isaac was born on September 8th weighing 3 lbs 5 oz.  He is doing wonderful and should be home any day now and I can’t wait to take pictures of him:)

Well after 9 months flew by, we sold one place, bought another, moved in, settled and waited for baby number 2.  We can finally say he is here!  Dante Vincent arrived April 5th at 12:28 pm he weighed 9lbs and was 20.5 inches long…yeah that explained my GIANT belly!  Here are a few pics of the little man below.  He is already in 3 to 6 month clothes and getting bigger.  He loves to eat!!!  My favorite thing about him are his eyes…when they are actually open which right now doesn’t last that long.  I look at his eyes and melt, he is super charming and sweet.  We are so in love.   Ava is adjusting to her new role as big sister now, it was a bit tricky at first as everything was all about her for 2 straight years:)  She has become a huge help and she usually has a way with him if he is crying for no reason, she makes him smile:)  So happy and tired at the same time.  Life is fantastic, I wouldn’t change it for the world.  I have my complete family now.  I have worked a little bit here and there but I have slowed way down as it is still hard to leave him for too many hours during the day.  So it might be a while before I can schedule you.  Thanks for your patience of course, I am enjoying my role as full time mom for now:)

I am just about 38 weeks in my pregnancy, I am so uncomfortable and anxiously awaiting Dante’s arrival.   Meanwhile, I seem to be photographing newborns every weekend which makes me want him here even more.  I was never good at waiting…..Not to mention I could really use a glass of wine after chasing my 2 year old around:)  I haven’t had time to post to my blog in so long, I will do my best to get some new stuff up in the next couple of weeks.  Here is a cute smoooooooshy newborn that I met last week, his name is Colter, he is so easy going, no crying, no fussing.  Super calm easy baby, he even sleeps at night.  WHAT?!?!??!

Remembering 2011 and 2012!  I first met Lissett and Mark when they were pregnant with twins.  I remember I was trying to get pregnant myself and I was blown away by how beautiful Lissett looked and shocked at the same time that two babies lived inside her tiny belly.  Its sad when a pregnant woman is wearing skinnier jeans than you!  I love this family.  They are two of the kindest, nicest people I have ever met and the twins are beyond adorable!  I love every chance I get to shoot these little munchkins!  Here are a few from 2011/2012 my how they change!

 

Ok and here are a few others because they are so cute!

Well this was fun!  I took Ava and Annabel and her mommy of course to this spot off the 5 freeway in San Juan.   It was a bit chilly and wet so early in the morning, also known as “happy” time.  Anyway, lots of mud, tons of buzzing bee’s, nasty rotting oranges and a couple of cranky toddlers that want to play NOT sit still to take a pic!  Anyway, we managed to get a few cute ones of Annabel and I think they capture her personality well, she is a fun, crazy, bouncy, smart, adventurous little girl with the most AMAZING EYES!  She knows what she wants and is a true leader in the toddler world.  She is always the leader of the pack at the playground…leading to far away places away from us moms!

Ava has been acting CRAZY this morning!  MAMMA!  MAMMA!  MAMMA!  AHHHH!  I just started pulling my hair out when I noticed her with sunglasses and a cell phone…melts my heart.  She is growing up so fast!  Put me right in check…enjoy every moment!  LIFE IS SHORT, get off computer and GO OUTSIDE:)
