I hope you had an amazing Easter. We went to church and then had a fun day filled with activities for the kids. As, I step back and reflected on the past year/ years I'm blown away by how truly happy I am with my life. That's not to say that everything is perfect and there are no challenges, but I'm totally satisfied. 

Psalms 63:1-5
O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.

I think it's been almost two years since my last post!!! WHAT!! Wow, that went by so fast. Having two babies close together is amazing and exhausting all at the same time. I'm a twin and I seriously don't know how my mom did it.

I just wanted to  share so photos of how the family is growing and changing.

I cant believe how big my little girl is getting. I have to be honest I never really saw my self having kids. It was such a foreign idea to me. I grew up with a very very small family and never had any direct contact to kids. I guess the kinda scared me. When I was told that I couldn't have any secretly I was kinda happy about it. But now, boy i'm so happy they were wrong. I want to  have the most kids!! I love being a mommy so much. It's seriously the best thing ever. I'm so in love with them. Jovi is my comedian and Nixon is my cuddle bug. Every day I'm thankful for the time God has given me with them.

Today we spent a little time taking photos of Jovi doing what she does best, making me laugh the hardest. I hope her photos make you smile.

So... you might be wondering what happened to me. well, I had my baby boy, Nixon Mose. And if I thought it was hard blogging with just one baby it's nearly impossible finding the time with two. I'm not sure when and how often I'll be updating on here but i'm hoping i'll get the hang of thing and start posting more frequently again.

that being said let me tell you about Nixon. He is my little lover boy. He is perfect, Huge, cuddly,  and absolutely adorable. I couldn't ask for a more amazing baby. He cuddles me all night long and i wake up to his adorable little man child smiles. He stole my heart right away with is gentil disposition.

He was born May 26th, weighing 9 1/2 pounds. He is a big boy for sure. I'm not sure how he fit in my tiny body. I had him just like I did with Jovi, at home in a birthing tub. I did every thing completely natural and wouldn't have it any other way. My labor was completely different then with Jovi. In fact it was pretty strange and surreal the whole time. I had no idea I was in labor and didn't really feel any pain right up until the very end. He was so big that he got stuck pretty badly and it was super scary for a few mins. His shoulders were just way to big for me. Thankfully, my mid wife was able to get him out safely and everything was ok.

the pas few months i've just been settling into my new role, mommy of two!! it's been crazy around here but it's really not as hard as I anticipated.  Jovi adores her little brother. all she wants to do is hold him and kiss him. I just need to remind her to be gental.

What can I say but I have thee most amazing group of friends a girl could ask for. I wasn't even planning on having a shower this time around, but my friends wouldn't have that so they threw me the most spectacular shower! Seriously they need to do some serious thought on starting an event planning business. It was so beautiful down to the smallest detail. It's like they crawled inside my brain and channeled me the whole way threw.  It's days like these that you truly feel cherished and loved by the people closest to you. I know it took them a lot of work and time and I'm so grateful  that they felt I was worth all the pampering.

thanks so much guys!!

It seems like I've finally had the time to get back into doing Shoots more regularly. It's been awesome too. I love photography and editing. I thought, naively that last year when I took off for maternity leave I would have all this time to work on my Photography and Editing skills and starting becoming the professional photographer that I've been dreaming of. Well, that was a be joke....having a new born well no one told me, but they happen to be a ton of work. haha I dont know what I was thinking. I even did a few shoots wearing Jovi in a baby carrier it was a complete mess. 

But, now we gotten the swing of things and I'm finally finding time to slowly build up my portfolio just in time for baby number two!! hah 

So here's a look at my lastest shoot with Alex and Sarah. It was really fun hearing their ideas and making them come alive. I feel like the pictures really capture who they are as a couple.I always get nervous shooting more the one  person at a time. It's hard enough trying to direct one person then add to that and it's a lot of work. It's so much easier when the two people have the love and chemistry that Alex and Sarah naturally have together.
