When your baby asks for a Moana 4th birthday you go all out! I gave her the full Moana treatment! She loved walking along the beach as Moana and having everyone say "AAWWW!" over her.
I can't believe that she is 4 already. I still call her baby and it feels like just yesterday that she was a little butter ball toddling around after L. She has so much imagination and creative spirit. She loves ballet, playing dress up, dolls, and anything princess. Watching this baby girl grow is so much fun! She makes me laugh so much everyday. She makes up cute little stories and dances all the time and is the spirit of our family. I love everyday with my Bunny Lou Lou!
This spring here in California has been breathtaking. Thanks to more rainfall than usual we have flowers blooming everywhere! I have been taking L&B to see the wonders of spring as often as I can.

Brinley's Winter "One"derland was a 1st birthday party unlike any other. From beautiful linens, a hot cocoa bar, lace teepees, snowflake martinis for the adults and actual snow, this soiree was gorgeous down to the last detail. The kids got their faces painted, had fresh spun cotton candy and ate the most delectable pastries and treats. Brinely is definitely one lucky little girl.

Meet my baby girl "B". She loves all things princess, Harry Potter, dress up and makeup. She plays dress up almost all day everyday and thinks that she doesn't have to go to school, but can just do "princess parties" for other kids birthdays. She constantly talks on her toy cell phone planning these parties and bossing "her girls" around. Everyday with her is full of laughs, you just never know what her imagination is going to come up with.
For the past year we have been living in Huntington Beach thinking that my husband would be working in Torrance when his company opened up a new yard. At the end of the year he got transferred short term back to South Orange County right by where we used to live. We took that transfer as a sign. He asked to make his transfer permanent and we moved back to Ladera Ranch. Our kids had missed living in Ladera so much and so did we. I can walk my son to school now and in the hot summer months we can go to the water park. We are back where we are happy!
I have been friends with Ashly since I was 18 years old. I have been able to be there as she went away to college, fell in love with Alex, we went to hair school together, got engaged, I watched her walk down the aisle, have her two sweet boys and now I get to see her have her 3rd baby boy. You never know when a life long friend will come into your life, but once they do you know how special they and how you want to keep them forever. I cant wait to see The Bloore Family's new chapter of life and adorable new baby boy!

Some sessions are extra near and dear to my heart, like this one. I have known this beautiful mommy for 6 years now. We have done hair together, been princesses together, laughed together, cried together and now we are mommies together.
As a mom you think you couldn't love another child as much as you love your own. But, then this little princess was born (while we were having my daughters 1st birthday party) and she stole me heart my kids hearts. We love her like she is our own. I even took her newborn pictures. Watching her grow up is such an honor and privileged. Having these 2 beautiful ladies (3 if we count the sweetest frenchie ever) in my life is such an amazing gift.
They will move mountains and change this world...you watch!
