pictures with my daughters.

I remember being pretty little & going through my photo books and barely seeing any pictures of me with my mom.  It made me sad, & when I asked her why there were no pictures of her with us, she said it was because she was always the one behind the camera. I cherish the pictures I have with her when I was little so much, & made sure to take lots with her while growing up.  Because of this, I always told myself I'd take lots of pictures with my kids, & I'd say I've done a pretty good job of that. 

 Steve took some pictures of the girls & I on Mother's Day morning & I know I will cherish them forever - & hopefully they will someday, too.  I love these girls so, so much.  

Props to Steve for taking some pretty good pictures!  What a little photographer of a husband I have :)


  1. Amazing photos - so beautiful! I was looking for a photo me and my two boys a couple of weeks back and I could only find a handful of the three of us :( I must remind my partner to take more pictures!


  2. These pictures are STUNNING!!! You all look absolutely beautiful. You really did remind me that I rarely take pictures with Gunner, because I am always behind the camera. I'm always taking pictures of him with everyone else, but rarely with me. This blog was a nice reminder to do more of that :) And huge props to Steve on such beautiful photos of you girls, but it's not hard with you all being as beautiful as you are!

  3. Such pretty pictures. Your girls look so happy and I love your lipstick!

  4. What beautiful photos. Hope your had a wonderful Mother's Day! You are all so adorable.

  5. I saw a photo on your instagram with Kate in a crotch dangler. I would really love if you could do some research on how dangerous the crotch danglers are for a childs growth and development.. especially the spine. Maybe look into soft seated carriers like an Ergo, Boba, Mei Tei.. or even a proper sling. A Bjorn is the worse of all carriers. All the weight of the child is in the spine and private areas. Ouch. But, I applaud you for attempting attachment parenting. :)

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment! Just wondering if you have any legitimate articles to back your statements up? (Not from a blog, or just a few doctors points of view.) I tried to look for some but couldn't find one scientific article from a trusted source. I DID however read this here:

      "The Medical Advisory Board of the IHDI does not endorse nor advise against any particular baby carrier or other equipment."

      She definitely didn't seem to be uncomfortable at all "dangling from her crotch". In fact, people throughout the store kept commenting about how happy she was, constantly smiling & giggling :)

      Yes I do own the Ergo, Moby, a sling, etc. but after using them all many times, without a doubt she has proven to be happiest in the Baby Bjorn at this age. She is more fussy in the other carriers.

      Also, no need to applaud me for "attempting attachment parenting" - wasn't attempting it at all! Just like to wear my baby every now & then.

      Again, let me know if you can cite an article for me from a trusted source - I definitely don't take my babies' safety lightly! Thanks again!

    2. I'm in Australia and did a quick search and couldn't find anything here either. I have had both my kiddies in the bjorn and with my youngest I bought an ergo later on when he got too heavy for the bjorn and it started hurting my shoulders.

  6. Lisa, I freakin' love you. Such a class act. If someone left me this anonymous comment I'd have given them the virtual finger, LOL!

  7. It's a very interesting concept where you have to balance objects perfectly on the field which are provided to you. The people today that invest in this camera, possibly have an limitless price range, or are expert photographers. While recording, you can also change the audio levels by using the touch wheel, so if the audio is riding a little too high, you can change on the fly.

  9. It seems more and more, more mature males from the late 20s to
    the mid 40s are getting involved with females ranging from 16-20.
    Just inside a common social observation, both the girls and males seem to want these types of interactions,
    and it often finishes in a quick time and is emotionally detrimental.
