Gentle kisses on little fingers

We met up at Hosp Grove and then Carlsbad beach for her maternity photos.

She got out of the car and was breathtaking.

Something about carrying a little human being brings out the most beautiful glow in mothers-to-be.

Best Friends

I have two best friends from school, one from 7th grade and the other from 9th grade.

I love them both so much and would do anything for them.

After all, they have seen me without make-up and have a stock full of horrid embarrassing stories.

Oh… and how they lived through my first heart break and are still there for me is a miracle.

They have also seen me at my happiest and have been there to share these moments with me.

As I watch Kaili grow up and treasure the friendships she has had since preschool and kindergarten

my wish is, that she too, will have the same bond I have with my friends.

So when she asked me if she could have a photo shoot with her best friends,

a light bulb went off and I thought how cool would that be??

To document the start of every year? And how much cooler would it be to offer it YOU?

adorable photos

To see her this goofy and laugh this hard is something I can’t produce.

She is her true authentic self in these photos and it’s going to be amazing to capture these moments for her.

A Perfectly Blurry Life

Our life in between is somewhat a blur, rarely in focus

filled with play dates, battle of the minds, and quiet movie nights

choosing battles is always a chore

seeing the gray multiply faster than I can count

but when it’s just us

hanging out at the beach

talking about your friends

the infamous talent show you spend a year planning

the cartwheel you need to perfect

the almost there splits

the search for the perfect seashell

the heart shape rocks

the important things to you at the age of nine

makes for a perfectly blurry life
