Motherhood, Pregnancy, Maternity

These are all words to describe one of the best times in a woman's life.

Nine months of wonder, loving your baby from the first day you learned you were pregnant.

Dreaming of the days your precious newborn will arrive.

 

Reading stories that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Motherhood, Pregnancy, Maternity - words that bring a smile to our faces and a warmth to our hearts.


Little brother makes three

Welcoming a new baby into a family is such a special blessing.  

 

 

 

This baby is so lucky to not only have such loving parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, but also two sweet sisters.  

This tiny little brother is a perfect addition to this sweet family.  It was a joy to photograph them, thank you.

The San Diego River Foundation Activities

 

The San Diego River Park Foundation hosted a mural painting project.  Several murals were sketched and the community was invited to complete each part of this chain of paintings.  These beautiful murals hang on both sides of the fence at the Edgemoor Barn, which is now houses the Santee Historical Society

Sketches were created by a local artist featured here.  She then enjoyed not only helping to complete the paintings, but helped others show their artistic skills as well.

This evert was held at Santee's Historical Society Barn.  A barn we always referred to as the Polo Barn, but it turns out it was not the polo barn.  You will have to stop by to hear all the interesting facts of this amazing building and property.

San Diego River Foundation Discovery Days

The San Diego River Foundation invited me to photograph a couple of their Discovery Days Events this year.  

 

They learned of the beauty and role that our California Native Plants play in the river's ecology.

Next, they learned about the watershed and what affects it.

Of course searching for water bugs was a highlight of the day.  Each student was able to examine these tiny creatures in in petri dishes, as well as study them under a microscope.

Last Evening Light

Summer's end creates an amazing backyard stage.  The evening light softens with hues of red and yellow.  Skyler, Tanner and Quinn are taking full advantage of those last moments before bedtime.  Towering pines provide a beautiful canopy, that shed soft needles that can be felt underfoot.  As the sun dips even further, they plead for just five more minutes to play.  Twinkle Time comes all too soon!
