Happy Friday! I am so excited to share the work of these talented photographers. I am constantly inspired by how they capture their world in such a beautiful way! Be sure to swipe left to see more if their stunning work!
Today myself and a group of fellow photographers are gathering together to send love out into the world in support of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. #clickloveforharvey So many people, including many of our photographer friends, have been affected by this catastrophic storm. I have been so impressed by the strength and positivity the survivors of this storm are showing. I hope you will join me in finding ways to send love, give back, and rally together to support them. Click on the link on my bio for ideas on how you can help! My girl literally making lemonade out of lemons seemed an appropriate image to share. 🍋. To see the other amazing photographers participating press the link on my photo and follow the loop until you are back here. Next @katiewoodardphotography
Pretty pink petals and a flower press my sweet friend @therealdanaleigh sent to my girl!
Watching the sun set through a cool sculpture!
She will sit and play with her little dolls for ages which is impressive for a just barely 2 year old. I love watching her imagination grow! Also, I want to live in her dollhouse!!!
My saucy little Rose wearing a dress my dear friend @mavis.and.olive repurposed out of my mother-in-laws old line dress against a green door because green always makes me happy!
Our sweet Toby makes a great pillow. He is sweetest and most patient dog! #nationaldogday
My first baby started her last day of preschool this week and it has been a bit hard on this Mama. I love watching her grow but at the same time want her to stay little forever.
Happy Friday! It has been a long week over here but sharing these talented artists with you is the perfect start to the weekend. I have been inspired by these ladies for such a long time. Please go check out their feeds and get some inspiration of your own!
Golden Light! Check out my stories for how I achieved this flare. Such a fabulous accidental surprise!
I was feeling pretty sad yesterday that I didn’t get any cool eclipse photos but after this girl got home from school we all went to the beach and it put it all into perspective for me.
If you go out in the woods today…
Last beach sunset before preschool starts up again for this little one.
I love the way a little bit of movement can add so much interest to an image!
Happy Friday!! I am so excited to share these talented artists with you. I love the way they capture and share their kids just being kids in the most amazing way! Please go check them out and give them some love! #followfridaymamas #followfriday
She is so curious. She bent over this rock and watched the ants on the rocks for ages. 🐜
I took my girls back to my hometown in Canada for two weeks this Summer while my husband stayed home and worked. My girls were sure happy to see him when we got home.
She was running her hand along the corrugated iron. Don’t you just love that feeling?
Seriously, there is beauty EVERYWHERE. This was in a parking garage!
Pretty light and carrots straight from the garden! Thanks for letting us raid your garden @kimberlyknudsenphotography! 🥕 🥕 🥕
Happy Friday everyone! My youngest woke me up way too early today but it is still a good morning because I get to share these talented ladies with you. There ability to capture meaningful moments in beautiful light is SO GOOD! Please go check out their feeds and give them some love! #followfridaymamas #followfriday
My heart! Watching them love each other really is the greatest gift!
Getting acquainted with more animals! Rosie was much braver with the cows this year. I am amazed at how curious and friendly these heifers are!
Rosie was so in love with this barn cat. So wish I wasn’t allergic to cats or I am sure we would have a few!
Happy Friday to everyone! Here are some little pops of red from some seriously talented artists. Please go check out their galleries and give them some love! @princesspeaimages @erin.mufford @nattyjophotog @jamieeilts #followfridaymamas. #followfriday
I wasn’t fast enough getting her yogurt for breakfast so little miss bed head went in for it herself!
I have met some of the most amazing people though photography and I was lucky enough to visit @kimberlyknudsenphotography’s farm for the second year in a row! Rosie had a blast. Get ready for lots more farm pics when I get home to my computer!
Sister stroller races are the best! So is wearing your pajamas all day!
This girl! She is fiercely independent, has zero patience and pretty much only listens to me if what I am telling her is what she wants to do anyhow but I wouldn’t trade her for the world. Really thankful for the two hour break I get at nap time though. #tiredmama
Negative space, interesting light, and my girl! Everything about this makes me happy! I ❤️ taking photos in parkades!
Washing sand off their hands over and over again! Love watching my girls play at the beach!
Ah Summer! When you get to stay up late playing on the street in your pool because the light is pretty and Mama wants to take pictures! 😂
Happy Friday!! I am so excited to share these talented ladies with you today. They capture their everyday in the most mesmerizing way and they use light SO well!
My sunshine! When she is tired she plays with her ears, she is lifting her hand up to do just that here.
She does this ALL the time!! I often consider doing it!
Finding a stage wherever she goes! Love watching her personality blossom! Also, she carried that huge pink ball everywhere with her this entire day! 😂
Happy Friday! I’m excited for the weekend and to share these talented artists with you. These ladies are supportive, talented and amazing at capturing their lives in a creative and colorful way! Please go check out their feeds and leave them some love!
This moment makes all the hard moments worth while and I am blessed enough to have it preserved forever! These girls are happy, healthy and love each other so very much! I am currently working through @gingerunzueta’s breakout “Expressions of Motherhood” and it is not only filled with amazing images and words but it is reminding me to reconnect with why I take all these photos! If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend checking it out!
My girl, under the 5 freeway, just skipping her way into the sunset! Love spending one-on-one time with my big girl!
This one is my adventurer. Always climbing and exploring things that are not really appropriate. My oldest was never that way. Anyone else have kids with such different personalities?
Delaying bedtime by watching the sunset. She has definitely figured out my weakness!
Heading home after a great July 4th celebration with friends who are like family!
Some Red, White and Blue fun! These girls love to paint so this seemed like great pre-July 4th activity!
We went on an adventure to a fish market this morning! This little lady loved exploring and touching the fish! 🐟 Thanks for inviting us @Vironica!
Lazy Saturday!! Who else is having a relaxing day?
She is constantly trying to keep up with her big sister! I just love watching their relationship develop!
Into the great wide open!
It is the little things that I never want to forget!
Her big sister was tying to give her Eskimo kisses. She didn’t quite understand but it turned out cute anyhow!
“Just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair. That’s me, my sweet baby, my love is right there!” Nancy Tillman
She serenaded us with “The Unicorn Song” while strumming the uke. She is loving having two best friends staying at or house this week! Thank you so much @therealdanaleigh for coming to stay with us!
Yay for Friday! Hoping everyone has a relaxing weekend! While you are taking it easy you must check out these amazing accounts. Each lady captures little moments with such artistry! #followfriday #followfridaymamas
Mr. Sun!! Do any g you ever buy your kids totally ridiculous things because you know hey will look cool in photos? ☀️☀️
Sometimes it is fun to play with light and do something a little different!
Fun with the hose on which ur street!
“Unicorn Family” might be my favorite piece of hers yet. This girl loves to create and we have made an art wall but what do you all do with the multitude of masterpieces your littles produce??
We are in the midst of June Gloom around here. Very overcast! I miss the sun but there is something so great about moody skies too!
Her smile here just melts me! So god my girls get to grow up with this sweet dog!
“Girl Sliding Down A Rainbow” – this killed a solid hour – best use of seamless paper I have found yet!
New Hula Hoop! Except I bought one that comes with water in it (what is this craziness) by accident and it is impossible to hula with (or I’m getting old)!
My babies! The dog is yawning here – it is tiring living with these two!!
Visiting Daddy’s work is always fun!
Y’all – one of my very favorite people @therealdanaleigh is bringing her two littlest ones and coming to stay with me in less than a month! I am SO excited! Who else has met the most amazing people through photography?
What we see depends mainly on what we look for!
I hear “Maggie do it” at least a hundred times a day. So independent and determined.
Looking out the window and waiting for Daddy to get home. Plus, shadows and reflections! Who else gets excited when the light in your house changes and you find cool new shadows?
This little lady really enjoyed swimming at @vironica’s pool but only in the shallow end. 😂
Anticipating her Ice Cream!! 🍦
Me and my babies! Wishing all you Mama’s a Happy Mother’s Day!
Nudie run to the tubby! What are the things you never want to forget about your little ones? Mine is how one pig tail is always only by the end of the day which I am so happy I captured here!
My little sidekick at #clickinwalk2017! #clickinwalk2017sealbeach
Had a lovely time with my girl at #clickinwalk2017. The rain stayed away and we had a blast meeting some great So Cal photographers. #clickinwalk2017sealbeach
SPLASH!!!! Summer is coming!!
Seriously, baby feet just do it for me every time!
I take dozens of photos of her running, splashing and chasing birds and this is my favorite. There is something about the quiet moments I between that uh on my heartstrings.
I’m struggling this morning and wish I could just put my feet up like these two. Need more caffeine ASAP.
A shot from a year ago when we were in Joshua Tree that I never edited.
This dog is getting naughty in his old age, he stole food right off the table today but boy do we love him!
Her sweet little tootsies! Here is #onefromthecutringroomfloor for @mroseillier. I am so glad you inspired me to find and edit this shot Marissa. @therealdanaleigh @celiasloan @vironica would you ladies like to participate?
Happy Friday People! I love the way these talented photographers use movement and light in their photos. Please go check out their work and give them some love! #followfridaymamas #followfriday
My girl watching the sunset from the garage window! I can not believe how quickly she is growing. Anyone else shocked by how fast their kids are growing up?
My girl practicing for her trike-a-thon this week!
I love watching her explore the world!
This kid. Her sisters backpack is nearly as big as she is but it doesn’t slow her down. 😂
I have been taking photos daily but am so behind on editing. Anyone else in the same boat?
Happy Friday everyone! I’m so excited to share these inspiring artists with you. They capture their lives in the most artistic and clever ways. Please go check them out!
Heading home to this sweet face tomorrow and I am so very excited!
Missing these two like crazy while so am traveling in Germany, especially since today is my birthday!
So excited to do a #followfriday with these talented Southern California ladies. I love that we all live in the same general area and yet they each see it in such a unique and beautiful way. Please check out their work and give them some love!
Perfectly reasonable way to eat a doughnut! 🍩
Her hair is so long it touches her undies! Adore this girl so very much.
Made it to Munich safe and sound, now off to channel my little adventurer!
Warmer weather is here which means more playing in water in the sunshine! 💦 ☀️
I’m leaving this girl on Sunday for 9 nights! Her Nana will be watching her and her sister but I am starting to freak out. Please tell me it will be ok!
She picked this orange after swim class and boy was it yummy!
She is a drop your umbrella and run in the rain kinda girl and I love that about her!
It always amazes me what some pretty light (and pretty wild flowers) can do to make a otherwise boring location look magical! Plus, her little hand pushing away her hair from her face. 😍
Put your right foot in! I am so drawn to lines in images and for that reason I always check out stair wells in parking garages just to see if they have pretty light too!
She is always feeding him, no wonder he likes her so much and isn’t as thin as he used to be!
One last “Super Bloom” photo because it was seriously a “super pain” to get to it.
Clasped hands, long hair and pretty poppies!
Made an epic drive with both girls to check out the “Super Bloom” of California Poppies. Glad this little one had so much fun ducking flowers and tucking them in her overalls.
My baby girl and her bun. I really do love detail shots.
Happy Friday everyone. I am so excited to introduce you to these talented photographers. They have all been so very supportive and encouraging to me. I hope you will check out their work and give them some love. They all use color, light and composition in such fabulous ways.
Yay!!! Tomorrow is Friday.
I bought a hammock to hang between the palm trees in our yard and both girls love it. Any tips on weaning a 20 month old? 😳
Playing in the backyard jungle.
Yay for Friday and yay for these talented ladies. All of these artists are Canadian and live near where I grew up. I love seeing the beautiful way hey capture my home. Please go check out their feeds and give them some love.
This kid would brush her teeth all day every day.
My wanderer, turns everything into an adventure!
Often,but especially today, I need to remind myself to “Choose Happy” because so often it really is a choice.
It is Friday and that means the weekend and #followfriday! I could not be more excited to share these talented women with you. Their work blows me away on a regular basis. Please go check out their feeds and give them a follow and some love!
My little bubble blower! Good call on bringing the bubbles @vironica
Happy Friday everyone! I have a stunning group of photographers to share with you today. Their minimalist style and use of light, color, and composition are spot on. Please go check them out and give them some love!
She adores him and he does whatever she wants even though he is still taller than her!
Sending fellow photographer @alixmartinez light and warmth today in her fight against cancer! #alixslemon
Me and my girls! I never tire of the Canadian Rockies even when it is seriously cold!
Me and my girls! I never tire of the Canadian Rockies even when it is freezing!
It is #followfriday and I could not be more excited to share this beautiful group of photographers with you. Please go check out their pages and give them a follow. You will not regret it!!
It is cold at the moment (-25C /-14F) but when this is the view in the back alley you stop for one quick photo!
We got to take just our big girl up tot the top of the Calgary Tower and point out the places Mommy and Daddy lived when they met from way up high!
It is the little things, like the wisps on her braid at the end of the day, that I always want to remember.
This girl has been difficult lately – she is getting teeth, isn’t sleeping well and is the queen of tantrums. Give me strength.
It is Friday which means I get to share with you all four very talented photographers. These ladies capture their days in the most mesmerizing ways and each of their galleries is worth a follow. Please check them out!
This girl is loving the snow and ice but not the cold. Shame they generally go together!
She has had this on for over a week now and calls it her “big girl tattoo” – really hoping it is not a sign of things to come!
We made it to Canada and I got to go on a date with my big girl to the ice falls. I don’t have my computer here with me but with help from the talented and kind @justbethwithaj I was able to use the @enlightapp to edit this photo on my phone. I still missed my iMac and Lr but it was fun to learn something new!
It is Follow Friday and I am so excited to share these lovely ladies with you. Please go check out their galleries and give them a follow. Their work is captivating and inspired and they make me want to push myself to keep growing as a photographer.
Sometimes the mistakes end up being life’s greatest gifts.
Crazy hair don’t care! Also, really missing pretty, warm light at the moment.
My sweet baby girl. I have no doubt she will grow into a strong and determined woman.
It is #followfriday and I am in good company with these talented ladies. Please go over and check out their pages. They capture their everyday with such beautiful light, color and composition. Plus, who doesn’t love kids in hats?
My girls love their Daddy so very much and they are so lucky to have such a devoted and loving father.
“Just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair, that’s me my sweet baby, my love is right there.” Nancy Tillman
Always twirling, can’t help it in @aliceandames dresses!
Going back through my Lightroom catalogue to edit old images to submit to #Offset and finding new favorites!
It is Friday which means the weekend and it is Follow Friday! I am so incredibly honored to be included with this super talented group of women. They are so inspiring to me and I hope they will be for you too!
It has been gloomy and rainy here but when you spot some giant, colorful wall art and it matches your kid, you stop and take a shot photo!
Perfect 18 month old tootsies!
She is 18 months old and I do not know how that happened so quickly so I am determined to get in the frame more – time flies, I want them to see that I was there too.
Playing behind the drop cloth!
Couldn’t resist the shadow of my big girl helping my little girl get a drink of water!
It makes her so happy to pull her hat down over her eyes and try to walk around! That smile makes me happy too!
Painting the box, themselves, each other….
First Follow Friday of 2017 and trust me, you want to start your year off by following these ladies gorgeous work. Their photography is so inspiring to me and I hope it will be for you too.
Exploring our little beach town today. After a very short nap I was feeling a little frazzled with this little one but nothing some pretty light can’t fix!
The little things – pretty flowers and golden light! #bougainvillea
Happy New Year! My resolution this year is to be more happy with my everyday. I think finding joy in the little mundane things is key!
Pretty light and tree climbing, not a bad end to 2016!
I took this photo on Jan 1, 2016 and it is still one of my favorites of the year. I love the light and mystery surrounding my sweet girl!
It is the last Follow Friday of the year and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with these talented ladies. Please go check out their feeds and give them a follow! I just adore he way they all use color (I am particularly in love with these pops of yellow)!
Her hair looks so cute in piggies but moments after I put them in that little hand reaches up to pull them out!
My masked superhero picking up litter from the beach!
I hope she always explores and plays, no matter where she is!
She won’t go anywhere without her stuffed wombat!
Hope you day has been Merry and Bright!
Happy Follow Friday everyone! I feel so inspired by the beauty these ladies find around themselves everyday. Go check out their work and give them a follow, you will not regret it!
Even when it is rainy and wet like it is here today, the beach makes everything better!
My baby insists on doing everything herself so after she saw me cut a window in the box with a Stanley knife she had to try too only it doesn’t work so well once Mommy locked the sharp part away.
She always asks if we can stay until the sunsets like I would ever say no to that request! 🌅
There really is nothing better than having a sister!
My first Christmas in Australia I was feeling terribly homesick for home and snow. My husband made dozens of snowflakes and hung them up all over our house. Ever since, paper snowflakes have become a bit of a tradition in our house!
Drawing on the morning dew on the car window with some cool light and shadows!
We went to the beach yesterday and this girl explored and the dog chased giant pelicans and separately the images weren’t quite perfect but together they make my heart happy!
I am so excited to participate in another #FollowFriday this week and to introduce you to these four talented ladies. I really love the way they find interesting light and use it to help turn their everyday moment into amazing art! Please go check out their lovely accounts and give them a follow!
I’m not going to lie, I offered to give this girl to my sister today but then we went to the beach and it looked like this and she explored in boots that were way to big for her and now I think I will keep her.
We finally found fall leaves in December. Oh California, get your act together!
I am not a political person but reading today of the horrors in East Aleppo hurts my heart and makes me so grateful that this girl has never seen any pain and suffering. Praying for those that are suffering now.
Did you ask Santa for a subscription to Click Magazine for Christmas? If so, Christmas might just be coming a bit early. @clickinmoms and @click.magazine have given me a one year subscription to give away to one of my followers. Just comment here and be sure you have followed my page and my little Santa and I will announce the winner tomorrow!
A little pretty pier sunset light to make Monday a bit more bearable!
My baby is 17 months old and almost never stops moving so when something makes her stop and stare it must be pretty special!
We got our Christmas tree this afternoon! My husband caved and let us get it before his birthday this year. 🎄
So, I was feeling a little bit bummed today that we have no snow and that it doesn’t feel Christmasy. But then we went for a walk to the beach and it was cool enough for the girls to wear pompom toques and I felt much better!
Happy Friday! Today I am participating in my first #followfriday and it could not be with a more talented group of women. These photographers capture their lives and their children with such beauty and magic. Not to mention in great light! I am so inspired by each of them and I think you will be too. Please go check out their feeds and give them some love and follow! It is always nice to spread a little love, especially this time of year!
Not a bad spot for breakfast! I really enjoy getting to spend some alone time with this girl when her big sister is at pre-school.
“If you look for it I’ve got a sneaky feeling that you’ll find that LOVE ACTUALLY is all around.” My favorite movie to watch this time of year! What is yours?
Making a mess if the best part about baking when you don’t have to clean it up!
Finally getting some toque weather in California!
Throw back to an epic beach day this past Summer with @celiasloan!
Why do they always love the box the most? 📦
Playing in purple and pink puddles!
My first born turned 4 today. She could not wait to be 4 but all I want her to do is slow down!
I am so very thankful for these two little ladies and they joy they bring to each other and to everyone who knows them! Happy 🦃 day!
Kinda obsessed with rain on windows lately and it doesn’t happen very often around here so I take advantage every chance I get.
Run, run as fast as you can…
We went to visit Daddy’s office and she got to touch he sky!
I want to hide too and have the weekend start over!
Sisters! I am lucky enough to have a sister and so glad my girls have that too!
Throw back to our trip to Cannon Beach! I can not wait to go back!
Happy as a kid in a tree!
She calls for her big sister repeatedly when she is at school. I am constantly amazed by how much they love each other!
He is always close to her!
I can’t vote 🇨🇦 but one day she will be able to 🇺🇸! #vote #election2016 #electionday #imwithher
I found some pretty red leaves in SoCal! 🍁
We have all been sick in our house for a few weeks! Hoping for a healthier November and no more tears and sad faces from this little lady.
Reaching back for her little sister! 😍😍
She likes exploring in tunnels and I like sun flare! Win win!
I was so impressed that she added to the rock piles instead of knocking them down!
I know I will appreciate the fact that she marches to the beat of her own drum when she is older but man is it ever tricky sometimes in a 3 year old.
I’m one lucky lady! Always have my own button pusher right by my side!
Sometimes you just have to jump!
