My daughter keeps sneaking in my room night after night, and when I wake up with dead legs (because she doesn’t lay beside me on my kind-sized bed, but right on top of me) I can’t get angry because I know some day I’ll miss it. she’ll be too big to want to sleep in my bed and I’ll wonder what happened to my baby girl.

I took a little break from sharing more of these words from the heart/ love letters/ things I want my children to know (I’m having an identity crisis with what to call it). If you’re new to my blog (or not) I have to tell you, I updated my 365 love letters section, and messing around with those posts I realized WOW my photography has made an improvement. Check it out.

But first, a quick photo tip… Catchlights. I love them. I think they’re best when you’re standing near a window, with your child looking toward you, yourself positioned in front of the window (yet not blocking the light) is that confusing? Hope not. I did the opposite with the fridge shot below to create a deep shadow.

  1. hello there! , Everyone loves a person’s composing pretty a good deal! percent we connect further concerning your content upon Yahoo? My spouse and i need to have a expert within this place to solve our problem. Possibly that is an individual! Getting excited about fellow you.

  2. Moo prefers to sleep on top of me instead of beside me as well. Next week she’ll have her own room and I’m wondering if she’ll actually sleep in it or get up and climb in bed with me. Love the baby pics of Lil J!

Enjoying the last few weeks of summer vacation--Or as it's been up until now, every month with my girl before she embarks on elementary school. The fear is fading and it's being replaced with excitement. I'm so excited for what her future holds. And I know she'll rock it... And look cute thanks to talented designers like @maemillercrowns and @heidiofadelaidesbtq ?.
I don’t discourage her sense of imagination. I love how excited she gets dreaming about real princesses, magical powers, and flying horses. Some day–Probably very soon, she’ll grow out of it. Princesses will no longer be as exciting as they once were. Dress-up will be something for “babies” and magic will just be pretend.

Our latest princess photo shoot is up on the blog! We went to @disneyland for these!! Link in bio. #dressupwithj
Here's a quick tip on how I get my daughter's curls to stay bouncy and frizz-free: TONS of conditioner, an oil-based sealant and natural styling cream. I let it dry in 1-4 braids then take it down to bounce and shine! Check out @DollarGeneral for more beauty tips and savings. #DGBeauty #ad #DGEverydayBeauty ?
I can't believe this girl starts kindergarten in less than a month. I'm sorta freaking out but have high hopes. New post. Link in bio. Double tap for her dress and bow info.

Have had such a magical week with my daughter. Loving this special one-on-one time we are getting. Looking forward to doing the same with my son in the future. #disneyland60 #makingmagicalmemories.
We made it to Cars Land! #carsland #dca #disneyland
For her birthday she got a letter from Aurora inviting us to come and take pictures of Lil' J dressed as Aurora at her castle at Disneyland. The first thing Lil' J said was I get to see Cars! We looked at Cars costumes and outfits but couldn't find any that fit her style (or anything for girls). We worked together to sew this Lightning McQueen dress and she's so in love. She put it on then called herself the Cars Princess. Needless to say we will be taking many pictures at Cars Land too. #girlslovecarstoo #disneyland #pixarcars #sewingforkids #disneycountdown
