Happy New Year 2013, LOVE BLP! xoxoxo

WOW what an incredible year!!!! It has been my most successful business year to date, and I cannot thank my clients enough for your business! My business has finally grown into what I have DREAMED it being, and I am truly blessed to have the most AMAZING clients ever, and for helping this year be so successful for me. I look forward to another amazing year of working with you, and watching your children grow!!! I also look forward to meeting all my new clients this coming year!!! MUCH love to you and yours this New Years!!!

To my fans: YOU ALL know how much you mean to me, and you also know I wouldn’t be where I am today without your LOVE, SUPPORT, and encouragement over the past 4 years! Just want you all to know I feel so blessed for all of you, and I cannot thank you enough!!! BEST wishes to YOU and YOURS for the new year!!

To my friends. What in the world would I do without you?!?!? My true friends are some of the best human beings in this world, and I am so proud to call them my friends. Over the past few years, I have had a real opportunity to learn what true friends are, and my god, am I blessed with the most amazing friends a girl could ask for. I LOVE you all, like family.

Then there is my family. THE MOST important thing to me in the whole entire world. Im not sure you all know what an incredible man I am married to, but I thank god every day for allowing me to meet and marry the most giving, honest, selfless, loving, hard working and family oriented man, and to create the most beautiful two children with him. We are so BLESSED. And WE (my husband and I) are SO incredibly lucky to have such a selfless, LOVING, giving family, in our lives. Thank you for setting such a good example to us (jason and I), on how to be good parents. We can only hope we can instill these good values into our children.

I am a HUGE believer in this Prayer that I shared below, that my daughter says every morning in her classroom, with the entire school on loudspeaker. Ever since Maren started at this Montessori private school (which goes from 2 years old all the way up to 8th grade), we as a family of four, have been living life according to these words:

“Dear God of my heart,
I intend to radiate peace from the greatness within me.
As I…..listen with the ears of Understanding,
Speak with the voice of kindness, and
feel with the heart of Compassion,
and when I greet another, I behold the truth. I see only LOVE.”

 SO MUCH coming from BLP in 2013!!! I have some news that I have been DYING to share with you, but am not allowed yet!! SO stay tuned! (Actually I have 3 BIG news things to share!!!) EEEEEk. This year is going to be amazing! Lets hope it will be an amazing year for ALL of us. XOXOXOXOXO

“I honor the greatness in you. I honor the place in your heart where lives your courage, honor, love, hopes and dreams. I honor the place in you where, when you are at that place in you, and I am at that place in me…..we are one.”

The Crugers

The Crugers. One of the most beautiful family’s I know….on the inside and out. I had the opportunity to shoot the oh so stylish family of Isla Charm Photography, and I just had so much fun doing it!!!

I am not much of a family photographer, but this family shot was a pretty “lucky” shot, and I just HAD to share it with you all! I call it lucky, because as most of you know, family sessions are usually just pure chaos (hence one of the reason’s I don’t shoot them!). This was an “in between” moment; there was only one of these shots, and it ended up being my absolute fav!! Aren’t they just a STUNNING family?!?!?

Sometimes, just sometimes, behind the scenes looks like this….

Maren’s 4th Birthday Under the Sea

December is such a crazy time of year for everyone. However, my daughter has a birthday smack in the middle of December. Sometimes, this month is just a blur for me, so bare with me;)Maren is currently on present overload at the moment. This year Chanukah trickled right through her birthday week, and then as always Christmas following right behind. Then we have all the out of town family and friends showering my kids with presents, Birthday, Channukah, Xmas…..woah. It’s completely insane the amount of UN-opened and opened toys there are in my house right now! Im pretty sure we will be opening one a day forever. LOL

I can’t my very own girl turned 4 already. It seems as if year after year, Christmas comes and goes, right along with her birthday, as she continues to grow older, into the most special, most amazing, most beautiful child. It feels like just yesterday I was holding this beauty in my arms at the hospital, looking at my husband in complete awe. We both fell head over heals in love with her instantly. SIgh……. where does time go??

Thank you to all of our family and friends who came out to celebrate Maren turning 4! She appreciated each and every one of you being there for her, and can’t stop talking about it all!!!

I know I am a bit behind on these images, and I haven’t even begun to touch the actual party images from during the party, but I just wanted to share some from party details with you. I also wanted you to see how AMAZING the decor is, which was made especially for my little Maren’s ‘vintage’ Mermaid party, all hand made by the amazing PAPER CANDEE. A very special thanks to Paper Candee for adding your special touches to Maren’s party. It surely was eye candy!!!

The rest of the images to come (after the holidays)………Stay tuned! We had Ariel and her “Sea Horse” stop by for a surprise visit, from the amazing Princess Parties By Keri.

Kristi Mangan - Adorable! She is so beautiful! I love the last few pics of her. By any chance are those my size 2 aquamarine ruffles – I believe I left them at your house back over the summer when we did that popsicle shoot with Cayden Lane…..
