Let’s get to know each other, COVID edition. 😉 I live in San Diego with my husband, 2 girls, our pup and a fish (yes we have to include him too 😂), where I’m spending an awful lot of time these days. During the quarantine, been eating a lot of chocolate (no surprises there 😉 but I was able to find a vegan chocolate that tastes amazing) and really trying to find lots of creative ideas on cooking healthier. I’ve been doing a lot of crafts and bike riding with the girls and also taken this time to find new hobbies- like painting for example. I’ve really been focused on my health and self growth. I’m feeling so grateful during this time, grateful we are all healthy and safe. It’s been a wild ride, to say the least. Now let’s keep things on a positive note and tell me, what is something you’re grateful for during this time??

I can't wait to get out there and start photographing lovely couples and big life events again! I loved this engagement session and how I got to know this sweet couple more and I am so excited for their wedding day! However it may be, the big event they have been planning or a smaller one for the one closest to them, I know it it'll be special. It'll be about them and celebrating their life and love for each other. To me that's what your wedding day should be about 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what 🔟 years of marriage looks like for us. Happy anniversary to us! ❤️ As I sit here trying to find the words to describe these last 10 years I just get emotional. These last 10 years has been such a decade of growth for us. With all that we went through, he was my anchor and my safe place. From moving across the country away from all our family, to long months apart, through infertility, and everyday life we have always leaned on each other, sometimes even without realizing it. Communication has been and will always be the key. I am not saying we are perfect at it, but we sure do always keep trying to get better at it, if not for us then for each other. Happy 10 year anniversary to my high school sweetheart ❤️@frankie.margotta 📷: @mandyfordphotography
HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY TO ME 🎉🎈 It was my birthday last week and I have been very much enjoying these calmer days with some cake and extra sweets this month. My husband even got me a delicious gluten free- vegan birthday cake from @hazelandjadebakery to celebrate it. It was such a nice, low key birthday that I completely forgot to post about it! 😆 I did however get some friends come by and sing me happy birthday out on the front lawn and I was so happy to see them all come just so that they could sing me happy birthday. I am rolling into 31 feeling very grateful for everyone in my life! 🥂 Here's to 31 🥂 ________________ Photographer: camila.m_photography Mentor Photographer: @alishacrossleyphotography Creative direction & styling: @jade.magnolia Florist: @mintdesignca Gown: @jennypackhambridal from carriage_house Ring: @trumpetandhorn Hair & Makeup @beautybespoken Tabletop @borrowedblu Paper goods: @margauxpaperie Backdrop & Mats @jrd_artshop Linens @latavolalinen Suit: @shoppatrickjames Welcome gift: @asignaturewelcome Shoes: @bellabelleshoes Female Model: @jaydahrobinett Male Model: @benschreen Cake: @ jade.magnolia Chairs: @brighteventrentals Painted bottle: @ruthoneya.illistrations Etched bottle: @gracecalligraphy Accessories: @carriage_house
I know I’ve been quiet over here... honestly, life has been looking very different. There’s been so much going on and I feel like I’m just now getting used to having my girls home full time. I’ve accepted that homeschooling is almost impossible for us... I have SO much more appreciation to all the teachers out there. So, while my hubby is away on his work trip Mila and I are keeping up with only the reading part of school. I’m okay with that and we’ve finally gotten into a rhythm! We’ve also been loving to explore our artistic sides with all kinds of crafts. That has been the most fun! I’ve found a love for painting I didn’t even know I had. I think most importantly in this time I’ve found so much within myself. And it feels so great to get to know me all over again! Friends, I’d love to keep connected and know what everyone has been up to! ____________________ Photographer: @camila.m_photography Creative Direction / Styling / Florals: @jannabrowndesignco Photographer Educator: @ashleyraephotography Coordinator: @sarahparkevents Hair and MUA: @beautybespoken Calligraphy + Paper Details: @bohoink Video @Dearloversfilms Gowns: @carolhannahbridal Surfaces: @jrd_artshop Ribbon: @silkandwilllow Lab Sponsor: @Photovisionprints Workshop Host: @thehybridco Rentals: @foundrentals Model 1: @kattyukhanova Model 2: @klaudiareidy Model 3: @olgazhukova.1
