I try my hardest to breathe you in and enjoy every ounce of everyday I spend with you. You're growing up too fast, it's hard to remember a time when you completely depended on me. You're such an independent and sassy little soul, never loose your curiosity. I love you sweet girl, thank you for being mine ❤️ #fynleighjewel

I’ve been taking photos of this family since their youngest was a bitty baby! It’s so fun to watch the kids grow up and I’m so happy they choose me to document their life each year ❤️ #sandrakordazakis

{307/365} As much as I love the beginning of fall, I really find the end of this season really sad. The days are short and the sky is too often grey. I try to go out as often as possible to catch some sunlight. At least, this boy doesn’t seem to suffer from the end of fall blues. • Autant j’aime le début de l’automne, autant je trouve la fin de cette saison démoralisante. Les jours sont courts et le ciel est trop souvent gris. J’essaie de sortir le plus souvent possible pour attraper quelques rayons de soleil. Au moins, lui ne semble pas souffrir de la déprime de fin d’automne! . . . . . . . . . #365project #tcp_365 #thefocusedphotographer #thebloomforum #mytinymoments #dearestviewfinder #cm_prep #inbeautyandchaos #galleryoflightfeature #illuminateclasses #adventureofchildren #childrenseemagic #childofig #honestlyparents #pocket_sweetness #thegallerycollective #theheartcaptured #captured_treasures #the_sugar_jar #littlepieceofchildhood #jj_its_kids #theartofchildhood #celebratechildhood #thesweetlifeunscripted #alldaykids #thecuriouschild #theeverydayportrait #momentsinthesun #shared_joy #ourcandidlife

He steps into flowing water. At first, the tug of a swift current feels equally matched. With every step he becomes more sure of himself. . And then without warning- the bottom drops. Where he once could manage to stand he now finds himself flailing. His feet can no longer feel the earth beneath. He slips under. . Grasping desperately in every direction- he can’t find a way to root himself. Helpless and being carried- he loses every bit of security. In a matter of moments, everything he once knew is blurred. . In one urgent gasp the confusion becomes fear. His chest is taking on water. He moves his mouth; but there is no sound in the rush of water. Desperate- he cries out with his heart instead. Help me. HELP ME. . And then, a hand takes hold. All at once he is enveloped; his heaving chest being held out of the water’s rush. Sputtering, his lungs reach for air. The fear slowly turns into tears. And in their release, the wild in his eyes begins to calm. . He thought he had it. But it had him. The river had him all along. . In a powerless plight, being pulled up and out of the torrent, we begin to see how fragile we are; how little we control. But in that, we also see the beauty in being rescued. We appreciate the hold of a strong love more than ever. . Running out of the water, he says: “I went under! But I was saved!”

Random but well known fact: It takes less than 40 seconds for that new baby smell to give you a heavy case of baby fever.

Over the past few months, I have slowly been making the switch to more chemical-free options in our home. Laundry detergent has been the latest switch! Did you know that store bought laundry detergent contains alpha-terpineol, benzyl alcohol, and camphor, all toxic ingredients that cause central nervous system disorders, loss of muscular coordination, central nervous system depression, headaches, nausea, and vomiting? When I started using essential oils I didn’t realize that Young Living carried so many other chemical free products that could help improve the health and wellness of my entire family! Thieves laundry soap is now my go to for clean, safe, fresh smelling clothes!

Found a cute little gray mouse in a pile of leaves today. (Actually this isn’t just a pile; it’s our entire backyard. And I think this hat is supposed to be a bear? I don’t know.)

This is definitely not the *greatest* image (we were freezing), but look at that sweet cheese face on my dude! Matching Christmas tees: @sweetees_ 🌲🎅🏼

My baby last fall. Oh my heart! I truly did not grasp how fast time flies until I had kids. If I could sneak back into this moment, I'd scoop him up, kiss those perfect cheeks, and hold him for as long as he'd allow. #mymagicalmoments #theeverydayproject #theeverydayportrait #boymom#momlife#letthembelittle#lifestylephotography#toddler#nikon#nikonphotography#childhoodunplugged#motherhoodunplugged#momswithcameras#motherhoodrising#candidchildhood#candidphotography #childhood #childhoodmemories #sleepingbaby #preciousmoments #littlebrother #momlife #babyboy #naturallight #documentyourdays #pixel_kids #reallife #wildandbravelittles #theartofchildhood #lifewellcaptured

As much as I'm totally in love with this bundle of joy, boy am I glad I have a night and day off whist she has a sleep over at her nanny and grandads. Really testing the terrible two's this week, and I'm finding it a struggle. Also g with an 11 year old hormonal mood swings it's just a house all up in the air at the moment. Parenting can be hard sometimes but those days dont last forever, no matter how long they actually feel at the time.

Really hope this medicine ball drink from Starbucks helps kick whatever cold this is that I woke up. Until then, it's cozy blankets and Hallmark Christmas movies with my favorite sidekick🐶
