5 Ways to Be a Hands-Free Parent

I’m still thinking through that article in the WSJ.  However, I’ve started being more of a Hands-Free Parents by following 5 Golden Rules for Social Media. 1.  Don’t post anything negative. Having recently earned my M.A. in Communication, I can say with certainty that complaining can be a healthy communicative activity.  However, calling a friend, sibling or parent is a much more […]

Sneak Peek: Baby Austin

Please meet my future son-in-law, Austin.  Just kidding.  A little bit.  But not totally.  Austin is the newest member of one of my favorite La Jolla families.  He has an adorable older brother, Brady.  However, I’ve read articles which say studies show that first-borns and second-borns make a great match.  Plus, I’d have amazing in-laws.  […]

Childrens Photography: Miss Talia

I think the best line I ever heard Talia say was when we were out to dinner with her family and one of my friends whom she had just met.  We were trying to squeeze 5 adults and 3 kids onto 2 wood benches that were meant for 4 people.  It was clearly going to […]

Alex - Wow! This is a gorgeous collection of photographs of Talia. I think you really captured, not only her beautiful exterior, but all the many wonderful facets of her inner spirit. She is her mother’s daughter. Lol! And maybe you could make that middle child feel special one of these days too… Just sayin’… :)
