Haylee's Halloween!


We have arrived to busy season! Holidays, photo sessions, cooking, arts and crafts, shopping, parties and so much more! I am very excited this year. Haylee is a year old and she is growing so fast. This season with her is so much fun. We have been playing with leaves, eating pumpkin everything, and doing lots of art and craft projects.

We took Haylee to our church trunk or treat. (Trunk or treat is when kids go car to car with themed trunks and get candy) Haylee loved it! This was her first year trick/trunk or treating. She was not scared of the other costumes. Haylee was very curious. She was so excited to get candy. When she learned how to trick or treat, she wanted to keep circling the trunks to get more candy. LOL! She had her first lollipop among other various candy. Her favorite is the lollipop. Our sweet neighbor dropped off a whole gift bag of candy for Haylee too. She is spoiled. Haylee really liked the Halloween marsh mellows.

For Halloween Haylee was Minnie Mouse. The inspiration came from Disney store Instagram. I am a Disney fan and love all the Disney characters. Our trunk was decorated with Mickey Mouse décor. I didn't really get a photo of our trunk this year sorry! I hope Haylee will continue to wear Disney inspired costumes, but we will see. She changes her mind every 5 seconds.

Souwan and I both grew up with DIY costumes for the majority of our Halloween past. I remember making my own princess costume with the help of my mom. It was the best time for me to work creatively and spend time with my mom. I want to do the same with my Haylee bear. So I hope we can continue the tradition of making our costumes! So she isn't old enough to make costumes with us, however Souwan and I had fun designing and seeing this costume come together. Her shirt is Souwan's design. It says Ears on Fleek! lol! It is inspired from the Disney store design. I cut it close this year because I waited til the last minute to change details of the costume and well there's my full time job lol. The hard labor was worth it. I salute all the parents who create their little one's costumes. I saw a knitted ninja turtle costume at trunk or treat. OMG! Great Job on that one! Anyways, She looked pretty cute! I hope you enjoy our Halloween pics and some other fall activities around our home.

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

Charlotte NC Engagement- Maurice + KaShara

Although we had overcast weather and it was in the 60s, this engagement session turned out to be the best! There wasn't any wind and these two are wonderful! Souwan, Haylee and I drove out to the Noda area of Charlotte to meet with Maurice and KaShara at Amelie's. I had a wonderful time getting to know all about the two of them and details about their upcoming fall wedding. As soon as KaShara and Maurice walked in with huge smiles and hugs, I knew this was going to be a great couple to work with! I have known Maurice since college and was so thrilled that they reached out to me on Instagram. I easily fell in love with KaShara and just knew this is a match! We went out to Noda and our old college stomping ground Frazier Park behind Johnson & Wales. Noda is filled with really great places to photograph from all the beautiful buildings and the artistic work! Frazier Park brought back memories for all of us! They have the cutest furbabies who they used to bring to Frazier. I l…
