One of the first things Alejandra said to me was “I need to have my session in September because this baby is definitely coming in October.” This baby already had determination and I’ll tell you a funny story further along this post about the baby’s middle name.

Santiago Oaks Regional Park Family Session

When I was a kid, my parents didn’t let me do a lot of things. Sleepovers had to be pre-planned and tattoos were a definite no. I still lived at home when I was in college, but my parents let me do more adult stuff like get my first tattoo and piercings that weren’t my […]
