I have been asked about my technical process for taking self portraits so decided I would do a post.  First of all I use my iPhone and have used it for the entire time I have been on Instagram.  There are days that I question if I should start using my DSLR for Instagram and…

I am always blown away by how much the boys want to help with all aspects of Adelia from playing to feeding to even baths!  For a fun unplugged activity we had loads of fun with Yiayia’s amazing kitchen sink in North Carolina, we threw in some flowers and gave Adelia a milk bath! Take…

Weekend mornings the boys are so good with their sister, taking the time to hang out with her and always wanting to be the one to hold her.  On this particular weekend we had some very special guests in town, our Cuban cousins as they say in Miami, the Breheney girls!  Our dear friend and…

There is just something so magical and timeless about film that when my wonderful and talented friend Monica Calderin offered to stop by with some cameras and film I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was.  The truth is I had no doubt the images would be beautiful, but the result was truly…
