I have to admit this super cute watermelon hat that Ollie’s Grammy found at Target inspired a mini-photo sesh!


Ollie LOVES watermelon. And so does JOSIE!


Happy summer!

I got a little spoiled this year! I asked Eric to take some photos of Ollie and I with the cherry blossoms in Central Park. We had so much fun! This might have to be a new family tradition. I feel so luck to be married to a wonderful husband (and photographer!) and to be this little guy’s mama.

When winter won’t seem to end and I miss my super cute nephew who lives about 500 miles away it is time to head south. We traveled to Miami for some sunshine and family time. The best part was seeing my son, Ollie, play with his cousin, Austin. Two terribly wonderful two-year-olds caused some commotion on Miami Beach!

Check out a slideshow with some fun iphone photos and more from our trip.

While we were there my very talented friend Brandi Toole took some family photos for us!

 

I’m feeling so joyful and grateful for my wonderful family and this season of love, fun and magic. Watching Ollie’s eyes light up when we turn on the tree or share a cookie makes me love Christmas even more.

I procrastinated this year with planning a family photo shoot. We went out to Central Park in late November with our tripod and remote shutter to take some Christmas card photos. I had very low expectations thinking that Ollie would never look at the camera or smile or perhaps even sit with us! We got super lucky. He loves buttons and was very interested in the camera. Once it started clicking from the remote shutter he thought it was so cool! Haha! A little Christmas magic came early. He is constantly reminding me to enjoy and find excitement in the tiniest things.

And we can’t forget Josie. She did end up getting some cookie crumbs!

Happy holidays, everyone!

Chihuly’s delicate blown glass sculptures dispersed through the greenery and blooms in the New York Botanical Garden? Count me in! My husband, my mom, and I were able to snag some nighttime tickets to see the pieces illuminated and it was fantastic. If you have a chance you should definitely go! The fragility of the glass and massive explosions of color are magic. Details at the NYBG, on exhibit through October 29.
