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.

I am now the proud owner of a selfie stick. And not even a little bit ashamed. I mean, how else can you get random family portraits in 2 seconds? Tiny, portable, and it's great for video too! Currently trying to rig my camcorder to it. I'll let you know how that goes. #selfiesunday #selfiestick #makingmemoriesbeautiful
The sun finally came out today so I'm capitalizing and starting a project that's been on my mind for a long long time. The grass is still wet and we all slipped in the mud but we had a good time together. Can't wait to get this show on the road! #4CanonsAndAGoPro #makingmemoriesbeautiful
Tangled (aka Rapunzel) was the first movie I took my daughter to see in theaters. She was 4 months old. It started our tradition of going to see new Disney movies together. Now she's growing to adore them all as much as I do. What traditions do you share with your kids? Think of a way you can capture that in a photograph you'll cherish. Whether through dress up, or another activity. #makingbeautifulmemories #dressupwithj #maemillercrowns
Finished the day getting mani pedis with my girl. I've got a great pair of kids.
