Warrior Moms | Mother’s Day

On this Mother’s Day, I’d love to give a shout out to all the rad folks who’ve ever made another mom feel like a warrior mom. Motherhood is not always glorious and we all have bad days. Some of us have children who are… different. Who aren’t quite socially “normal”. We see your judging eyes and hear your comments, but what’s really powerful? Those glances and reassuring nods from strangers that say “you’re doing okay. You’ve got this warrior mom!” It gives us those quick pick me ups on bad days and gives me the courage to reach out when I see other warrior moms having a hard time too.

Strangers don’t have the opportunity to meet the little boy that’s so filled with love for his sister that he’d rather skip a fun time out to be home with her when she’s sick. Or the random hugs he gives that come right when you need them most. They only see the boy panicking because a stranger touched his shoulder to tell him something. They broke his bubble and he’s freaking out. He’s being rude. That’s what they think, but they just don’t know. They don’t know that it breaks me a little bit each time this happens. But somehow, you do and you give me that look that says it’s okay. Thanks for that. Really. Thank you.

Dear Abby

Dear Abby,

     My princess dress up, makeup loving, dirty finger nailed, girly tom-boy. You’re my littlest. My baby. My snuggling, lovable hug and kisser. The one who cries to sad movies with me (Frozen) and makes me laugh when I can hardly muster up a smile. You are my sunshine baby. The girl who lights up my life. I’m so glad you’re mine. You’ll be six in just a few weeks from today. It makes me sad that we’re saying goodbye to so many special milestones in your life. How did we get through them all so quickly? But it also makes me smile to see the beautiful girl you’ve grown into over the last year. Watching just how much you’ve pushed yourself to overcome tough spots in school. Your don’t give up easy. I hope that’s a quality you keep always. My sweet silly girl, I can’t wait to celebrate you on your birthday.

Love you mostest,
♥ Momma

A little Cadena vacation | Cambria, San Simeon Beach

Boy has it been awhile since I’ve posted some personal stuff! Sometimes it’s important for me as a photographer to step back and remember exactly why I’m here and it’s always my children. I’m not afraid of my mommy goggles and I’m bearing them proud while I post this that’s for sure! I’m so in love with these two people. The love they have for each other and the pure joy they have in the simplest of things. They are so beautiful ♥
