4 years. 4 years and 4 days ago, you asked me to be your girlfriend, and you told me you wanted to marry me. 4 years and 4 days ago, I was already in love with you. I was in love with your smile, your sense of humor, the way you loved Jesus. I loved the way you could light up a room the moment you walked in it, and the way you put people at ease with your easy going personality.
So many things have happened in the span of 4 years - a wedding, 2 babies, a few job changes, moving a couple times. Ups and downs in our relationships, beautiful highs and sometimes lows that hurt.
Today, I’m in love with the person that you are. I love the patience you have with me as you help me to grow. I love the way you’ve learned to understand and care for me. I love the way you honestly and genuinely seek after God and becoming more like Him. I love the way that you always call me up to being the best I can be (even when I don’t see it myself). And gosh I love the way you make our boys laugh!
4 years and 4 days ago.. We’ve come so far since that day, and I thought I loved you then. 💛

This sweet little engagement session is on the blog. Take a break and go check them out, it’s Friday!

Steve and Liana have accomplished many cool things in the 28 years they've been married but my personal favorite is creating my favorite human, Kyle Norman (cough cough my husband). And you've guessed it, this sweet duo are my in-laws! ⠀

So saying it I was excited when we planned our session is a massive understatement. I had so much fun photographing their beautiful love! Thank you, Steve and Liana, for bringing me into your family and for letting me take your photos! ⠀

It’s finally Friday. I’ve had two weekends off and I am excited to be back to work this weekend!

We had a bumpy start but we’re on our way!
Luke and I planned to head out on vacation first thing in the morning, but I ended up waking up sick almost every single hour last night. We prayed and I’m doing much better now, and we’ve finally arrived to Palm Sprigs where we’ll be staying the next couple days! I won’t be on emails or messages while we’re out but I’ll respond as quickly as I can once we return 💕 🌵


6

I’ve been on a much needed 48 hour vacay. I feel so refreshed and ready to get back to my daily photog|mom life! I’ll be getting to emails this afternoon. Happy Monday!

All the feels!!!! Leaving for a little overnight R+R in San Deigo with my sister in law @erin_cowan!
My first night away from my little babe though, huge milestone for her and I. 🖤

Smiles + blooms go perfect together.

Hello Friday....let’s do this!


2

Happy Friday friends!! (Friday the 13th none the less!) I am currently (unlike in this photo) covered in sweat, sipping a latte ☕️💁🏼 One of my favorite morning routines is to get an awesome workout in and then sit at my local coffee shop, people watch and sip my almond milk latte. Isn't it wonderful that we can enjoy little pleasures - something as simple as sitting, watching the cars drive by while drinking caffeine goodness? I'm working on trying to slow down and appreciate the little things more. A lot of people deal with anxiety in today's society and I believe part of it is we get too wrapped up in trying to constantly plan for the future. We get all worked up about what we don't have, what we could be doing but aren't, where we think we should be...where in reality, God never planned on His children living that way. He wants us to plan, by all means, but not to the point where it overtakes the here and now and steals our joy. We were meant to live life to the fullest - and I personally believe a large part of that is taking the time to slow down and do things that bring us joy - no matter how small those things may seem. So that's it! Go out today, slow down, and choose just one thing to do for YOU. 💛

Happy Wednesday!! Popping my head in here for a sec to say hiiiii! 👋🏼 How’s your week going? So far July for me has been about adjusting to my new lifestyle of choosing when and where and how I want to work, which surprisingly has left me with more free time, but less time on the ‘gram! All this freedom and flexibility is AWESOME but life also looks a little scattered right now. I’m excited to have more of a consistent, inconsistent schedule, if that makes sense 😋 Getting there!

Anywayssss, instead of telling you random things about me that will not add value to your life, I thought I’d share 5 coffee-tea spots in Pasadena-ish that I love—so they may bring you happiness too!! LOL 😅🤗 Ready? Here ya go!

1️⃣🐥 @birdpicktea // you need some melon drop or lychee oolong in your life, and don’t forget the chia seeds!
2️⃣🍵 @lh_espresso // iced lavender matcha or lavender breve? yes please!
3️⃣☕️ @foundcoffeela // one of the best chai tea lattes I’ve tried!
4️⃣🍶 @jinteashop // I call this my bougie-boba spot. You neeeed to try their oriental beauty oolong milk tea with the brown sugar pearls (i.e. boba, see, bougie 😜) I adjust the sugar level so it’s not too sweet!
5️⃣🥛 @cafe_de_leche // horchata com espresso 👌🏼 nuff said.
🆗 and @lincolnpasadena of course, as pictured, but I mostly love their food 😄
++ places on my list! ++
6️⃣ @blackelephantcoffeela
7️⃣ @dinosaur_coffee
8️⃣ @marucoffeela
9️⃣ @alfredtea (can you believe I haven’t been yet? Haha)
🔟 @bobaguys

Oh man, now I’m on a roll. Must stop!! Where else should I add to my list? Specific drinks welcome 👍🏼 Hehe this was fun! If you DO want to know random things about me, ask in my story before the lil question box disappears. Will try to answer tonight! 💜

So excited to work these two again in a few weeks. @bri_avilaaa One of my Mother’s Day Giveaway winners! 🖤

Taking in the view.....

Hannah made silly faces at him in the rearview mirror to get his attention. They were on a long drive crammed into a van and her silliness got Nathan's attention. It definitely wasn't love at first sight or anything but her unorthodox method worked. She got his attention.⠀

And as time passed he realized that there was something really special about Hannah - her playful demeanor, her deep character, and her love for the Lord. The rest is history and these high school sweethearts have been married for two years now. ⠀

I had such a blast frolicking around San Clemente them! Double tap if you think they are just the cutest!
