{P + R} Maternity photos

My best friend recently had her baby girl and I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph her & her husband’s journey into Mommy & Daddy life.  Photography is a love of mine that has grown over the years.  It’s hard to make time to capture someone else’s precious moments, but when I do find […]

Fourth of July Craft at Anthropologie

Today we had the opportunity to take the kids to a crafting event at Anthropologie! I love when stores have little events like this for kids, especially stores like Anthro. Mommy loves browsing their things so it was a win-win situation 🙂 The staff at Los Gatos Anthro were very friendly and the kids loved […]

I am always hesitant to attend these seminars because […]

Happy First Birthday to our Giant Schnauzer Broderick!

We brought home Mr. Skansen‘s Broderick Von Mises (aka Brody) when he was only 4 months old! Brody is my first pet dog so it has been quite interesting to have such a large breed in the house.  At five months we started his training at Cali K9 (www.calik9.com) because I had no idea how […]
