It’s been a while since I’ve posted any personal photos on the blog. I thought I’d kick off the summer with a snippet from our recent trip to Jamaica. This trip was a “Happy Mother’s Day Trip” to me and I enjoyed every second. My wish was for no cooking, cleaning, social media, email or iPads. Many thanks to my husband and kiddos for making my wish come true. I read two books, I ate too much, I gushed over my two children. We snorkeled, sailed, ate, played in the pool, and ate some more. We left the kids at the Kids Club so Eric and I could have some romantic walks and swims on this beautiful beach. We don’t get to do vacations like this often but when we do, we never regret it!
We did not take many pictures at all. We were focused on being present and not ruining our phones/cameras in the water or sand. I was ok with that during the week, but now that it’s over I wish I had more. We did take out the Nikons for a quick session on the beach and I’m so happy we have these. Through these photos I can feel the air, sand and sea. And I’ll always remember this time, the innocence of my children, the unconditional love, the joy and laughter.
So here they are. Marlie (6) and Miles (3). Marlie is a spunky little Kindergartener who recently lost her first tooth. She loves dance, soccer, T-ball, the outdoors and art. Miles is a happy little three year old. He loooooves his big sister. He is rapidly learning his ABC’s, numbers, colors and new concepts that surprise me every day. He’s very proud that he has recently learned to use the potty. He literally says, “I’m so proud of me”. I’m proud of him too and so happy I will never have to buy any swim diapers for him! I’m sure many moms can relate to this excitement. These kids truly are the best of friends. I can’t even begin to describe the joy it brings when I see them together like this.
That’s all for now. Looking forward to another wonderful year of photographing some amazing Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Engagements and families!
