Indie at 3 | LA + Orange County

December, you got to love Decembers. This December was crazy for us and wonderful all at the same time. My mother finally made it up for a visit from South Africa, she finally got to meet John and Indie in person! All i can say is thank goodness for skype, else i would not be very connected to my side of the family at all. Anyways my mom and Indie just fell in love, it was so precious to watch. Indie especially loved it when she realized this person called 'Nana' also spoilt her rotten. With seeing my mom after so many years, Indies birthday and our due date approaching as well as setting to move (which we thought was happening at the end of January ~ how wrong were we) We managed to put together a little party for Indie, well before her actual birth date. Nova arrived 4 days after Indies birthday! It was not my intention to have a 2 December babies actually i was dreaming of a summer baby where birthday parties are outside and full of sunshine. Good thing we live in Southern California then eh! On Indies birthday party she was happy, all she wanted was a purple butterfly and thats what myself and my mom made for her and she was joined by two of her favorite friends. Her birthday was spent with family and a very pregnant mommy but, we headed out for some super important photos, the first of her and her Nana .... and the first for the start of her BIG #3 Im catching up with things before this wedding season hits for me. I have chosen to start shooting in April for engagements and in May my dates are filling up really nicely for the rest of the year. I am so excited to start shooting again, i am really looking forward to capturing these weddings, getting to know my couples, getting creative and spending more time with adults. I am also super excited to travel up North for quite a few weddings where i get to spend time with family .. and my girls get to spend time with cousins!

till later xox
