Recuperation + Fun | Everyday Beauty (3/52)

Let me first start by saying that I am taking a class called, Everyday Beauty. The instructor's name is Ginger Unzueta, and I adore her Lifestyle Candid images. Her portraits are filled with heart, stories, and so much joy. When I had the opportunity to work with and learn from her, I absolutely jumped at the chance. I feel so full of excitement, curiosity, and joy. Though this class doesn't directly relate to my professional specialization (Commercial Wedding Photography), it speaks to my personal joy (capturing Muffin's childhood). This series of portraits are for her workshop.

I am so very, very, very happy to report that you are feeling much better. :) You are still running out of steam fairly quickly, so we are just taking it slow.

 I started off the day by peeking into your room, before you woke up. Since you've fallen ill, my body just wakes me up. I can't settle back into bed without checking on you.

I love listening and watching you say Grace. I never want to forget that.

The Party Wall is the gift that keeps on giving. It's always good for an impromptu picture or smile. How in the world are we going to get rid of it? Those streamers can't stay up forever. Can they???

The most peculiar thing happened with Blue Jay. Around the same time that you started feeling unwell, Blue Jay started feeling sick. Here you are taking care of your "birdie baby,"

Daddy was telling you a story, and I kept rewriting the story with infinitely funnier plot twists. 

You Started feeling a bit down, again. We set up camp Get Well Soon on the couch.

 Since you were sick, and I'm a softie, I gave your your special hat. You are going to wear it on Hat Day!

All in all, it was a tough few days. Still, today was a great day. It's so comforting to see you playing and getting stronger.

Love You Forever and Ever,



  1. I love how you document all of Muffins days...some day he is so going to appreciate this (and so will you once he's grown and out of the nest)! Your class sounds interesting...and what an inspiration for keeping a Muffin journal!

  2. Glad the little dude is feeling better. It's tough when they're under the weather.
