Tito and Theresa Engaged!!

Happy Friday, friends! What are you all planning for the weekend? We're just planning on relaxing and spending the last two days of Brent's Spring break being a little lazy....Oh haha and going to DISNEYLAND!!! :D (we are serious disneyland nerds!) Brent's two weeks off have been so fun. Our first week together was pretty jam packed with hikes, trips to the zoo, lots of super long dog walks, bike rides movie dates and way too much eating...then we slowed down this week...still lots of time with the dogs and a bike ride somewhere in there...but we spent a lot more time watching movies on the couch then the first week. Now we are just counting down to summer vacation! ;D
Enough about our little Spring break....I know you are here to see some adorable people in love!! So today I have an extra adorable couple that I have known since the beginning of their sweet love story!! Theresa is an awesome friend of mine from my days at the YMCA in Chula Vista! :) We always had fun at summer camps and intersessions with little kiddos and lots of laughs. Then she met Tito....I can honestly still remember when she would talk about him! They have been so adorable together ever since!!! I was SO excited when I found out that they were engaged and then when she asked if I would capture their sweet love story! We decided to head up to La Jolla for their engagement session and it was so much fun! Theresa and Tito, we are so happy for you guys...and we can't wait till your big day in June!
Thank you so much Tito and Theresa for such a great afternoon. You guys are perfect together, I am so so happy for you both!!

Neri+ Amber= JUDE!

Happy Sunday night my friends. Are you guys in love with Sundays like I am? It has always been my very favorite day of the week. It's relaxing. It usually involves LONG coffee mornings on the couch with lots of morning chats. Long dog walks with my sister and our monkeys. Farmers market lunches and stocking up on produce. Maybe a good little run (when I'm being good) making a nice dinner, and then watching a good movie. Or at least that's about how today went. :) And it was perfect.
Brent is watching 127 Hours and I can't hack the blood that I know is coming up... so I decided to blog!! I have a special treat for you guys. The adorable and outrageously sweet Rivas family! I am pretty excited about this session. I don't get to do a lot of family sessions and it was a lot of fun to do this one! Amber is a friend of mine from high school that I have missed her dearly. A part from being absolutely STUNNING...Amber is sweet, so smart and such an incredible mom. I hadn't had the chance to meet Amber's beautiful little family yet and it was such a great morning spent with the Rivas family. Her and her sweet husband Neri have such an adorable little man named Jude! (I mean really, they named their son Jude....you have to love them already! ;D)  Little Jude melted my heart!! He is SO adorable, and so funny!  I had so much fun catching up with my sweet friend and getting to know her oh so sweet little family! It was hard for me to pick my favorites for the day...so this is going to be a bit of a long post....but you guys will see why! :)
Jude got an angry cookie and he was happy!! :) mmm....I could go for a cookie right about now! 
And then...he dropped his angry cookie...and it was time to say a sad goodbye to the cookie.
Thank you so much Amber and Neri for letting me capture this sweet stage in your families life. I was so honored and so excited to be able to do that! And beautiful, sweet Amber...I am SO glad we were able to get back in touch and catch up!! I can't wait to see you again soon!
