halloween 2014

this year, we did something girly for my non-girly girl and did a princess theme. when i asked her who she wanted in her photos and she said roo. he has been her best friend and companion for more than 2 of her 3 1/2 years. they are virtually inseparable.

taking portraits of her mean so much to me. later, they will remind me of her personality at this time in her life.  and i know one day, they will mean a whole lot to her too. i can really see how fast she is growing up, in ways i don’t have time to explain (nor do you want me to).  i am just loving every moment with her.  we have the best conversations and i get lots of spontaneous hugs and i love yous. gonna milk that while i can. esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.0esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.1esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.4esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.3esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.5esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.7esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.8esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.9esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.10esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.13esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.14esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.15esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.16esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.17esperanzajenn.halloween.2014.19

charlie’s 3rd birthday party

planning and executing a party for your kid is a lot of work! duh, right? i had a vision of what i wanted for my daughter’s third birthday party months before i even started doing anything. it was fun daydreaming at first, but then reality set in and i realized that all that i wanted was going to cost a ton of money or near impossible for me to take on alone. in the end, i did a little compromising and pulled off lots of d.i.y. ideas (thanks to pinterest) and it turned out just fine. but it was definitely a labor of love. hats off to all the folks who do event/party planning! …and this was only a toddler party! :D

anyway, here are the highlights from charlie’s party in late april.
