These next few weeks are going to be crazy... Or should I say cray cray lol I feel so out of the cool lingo loop!
-Weve got our maternity photo shoot with my friend Abbey who is an amazing photographer! We started shooting at the same time & clicked instantly! I luv her & Im so excited to get shot by her!
-Thanksgiving dinner! Its usually an all day pig out feast in our pjs with my immediate family but this year my in laws are joining us, which will be fun. But now we actually have to get dressed for the day! :(
-Ive got my last wedding of the season with the awesome Jennifer & Steve -click Here to see their engagement session! They booked me a long time ago & Im so happy to be wrapping up my wedding season with their wedding! Theyre not only clients but also our friends, so I know this wedding is going to be a blast!
-And before i go on maternity leave Ive got a family session with my contest winners "the Barkers"! They may look familiar to you because I shot their gorgeous wedding back in September! They are such sweet people so I know we are gonna have a great session!
- cant forget about my Lil mans 4th birthday!! I cant believe my baby boy is already gonna be the big 4!!! He is so ready to pass his baby throne down to his new lil bro coming in feb. Hes already reminding me that he's not a baby anymore! He doesnt realize that he will forever be my baby! Not having a party for him this year, just gonna make him his favorite meal & dessert (which happens to be the only dish Im good at) SPAGHETTI & BROWNIES with our immediate families!
-Then finally our baby shower! I decided to try to save some money by making all the decorations & see how creative i can get but i think i bit off more than I can chew! I didnt realize how much time it takes to make these tiny Lil details! I shouldve started months ago but im a procrastinator & i thought i work well under pressure... Ill let you know how that all goes down! Ive been taking before & after photos along the way so I can share them with you :)
So Holy moly! Hold on to my belly cuz these months are gonna be a bumpy ride! And I didnt even include my dad, mine, & jacks bday! Oh yeah n Christmas!
But before all this madness begins Im going to "take it easy" at the EAGLES concert! (pun totally intended!) I get to check this off of my bucket list! Im super stoked!!!! Im just hoping they have seats cuz my prego butt cant stand for too long... I feel like my inside are gonna fall out! Gross maybe a Lil too much info for the readers lol owell! Im a gross gal! :) Anyway I hope you all have a wonderful safe weekend!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
