A mini maternity session // Monterey, California

This past weekend, Jamie and I went out and he snapped some photos of this growing belly. I must say, he does a pretty great job behind the lens. We even busted out the tripod and took a couple of the two of us, though we mainly captured extremely awkward laughs (mostly from my inability to keep it together). I am so lucky to be able to have these photos of this time <3

week one // 100 days before Oliver

Here is a look at my first weeks work on the 100 days before Oliver project.

I am beyond happy with this so far.

Each day I take time out to think about him and reflect on my thoughts for the day. I have never been good at keeping a journal, although I desperately want to be. I have a beautiful journal that I wrote one page in when I first found out I was pregnant. I feel most comfortable telling stories and documenting using both photos and words. This lets me do both. I love sharing these daily and would love to have other Moms to be join me if they were interested.

100 days before Oliver

My husband and I are expecting our first baby this May. Since we found out, Jamie accepted a new job and we made a big move to Monterey, California. Needless to say the past seven months of this pregnancy have flown by. When I found out I was pregnant I started a journal and promised that I would write in it as often as I could. In the midst of everything that has gone on, that poor journal  has only housed two entries. Now here we are, 100 days away from meeting someone that will undoubtedly forever change our lives. I have an intense desire to document this time before he arrives. I will be posting daily on instagram and weekly here to record these precious 100 days before Oliver arrives.

Michael & Sita | married | California Club, Los Angeles

Some people create their own magic.

Their magic picks you up and immerses you in a whirlwind of stories, amazing people and love and somehow at the same time it keeps you grounded so that everything can be seen so clearly.

That’s Michael and Sita. They create their own magic.

Sometimes this profound feeling sweeps over me that reminds me I am exactly where I am supposed to be; telling stories, learning about other people, about traditions. This past weekend being a witness to that magic which surrounds Michael and Sita, I knew.

Add an absolutely amazing vendor team and you have a day to remember forever.

A special thanks to Richard Clarke for shooting this wedding with me.
