Oh ordinary life! | Ventura and Santa Barbara Lifestyle and Documentary Family Photographer

So thankful.

I am sitting here typing and the sun is shining and the sky is gorgeously blue. I am sipping on my coffee and J is out in the yard working with 12 bags of mulch. We had a wonderful weekend with my wonderful mother-in-law and we took the children downtown for a delicious BBQ dinner and then to a fall festival and a pumpkin patch on Sunday (btw, a cold gloomy day turned into a day with beautiful sunny blue skies with perfect fall weather!). I look at these photographs from my best friend's visit and I am so happy the kids are loved and cared for by so many people. J and I talk often about how grateful we are to have this "ordinary life," I want nothing dramatic...I just want to be able to snuggle with them, read stories together, eat a family meal, and go for a walk to the playground. Life is already so perfect that way.

Some favorite images from the past month - playgrounds, apple picking, lake living, bike riding, and home living.

This might be my latest most favorite portrait of the big monster.

Sunflower Patch!

I've been meaning to go visit the sunflower patch (McKee-Besher Wildlife Management Area) for years now and we finally got to go today.  Since Evie was little, whenever and wherever we were at a good spot, I would have Jeremy throw Evie up for a photo...this was a good place to do it. The best part of this photograph is that she actually looked and smiled at the camera..which she has never done before.  I can't wait to get a large print of this and have it hung up in her room.
