jump into 2013

2012 was a fabulous year with many awesome moments, i never do resolutions.. too much pressure.. i always try my best, hopefully that is good enough.. as i reflect, i really feel SO blessed..
this year i learned a lot about friendships, the importance of family and just being comfortable in your {my}skin..
balancing a wonderfully crazy life can be hard, i truly try to be present and in the moment with these little munchkins and my hubby.. i want to savor our life together..
2013 is looking pretty darn good already and i hope to continue to grow and learn..
and give..

thank you from the BOTTOM of my heart for visiting this little spot on the big web..
it means so much.
it really does.
have a happy, safe and giggly new year!

cheers! -fawn

private first look

this is why i love a private first look.. this kind of moment is what it is about.. just the two of you, seeing each other for the first time.. quietly, it's almost like you freeze time.. a magical time.. it is just about you two.. it is one of my favorite moments to shoot..

now that's a keeper..

yes i snuck my camera in.. apparently if you buy a package.. you can take a photo yourself.
otherwise.. do not dare.
i snapped this one in between the awkward clicks of mrs. claus..
the kids really bring back that magic..
look at those smiles..

our christmas card.

got our christmas cards out last week and i am actually pretty shocked that we squeezed one in! i love that my family {hubby especially} is so game for whatever i am up to.. one year, he dragged a vintage couch to the beach for me and this year? yes. he rocked reindeer antlers for me.. without a SINGLE complaint.. 
love my little family.

merry christmas!!

over here.

gotta love the home depot ...

we have been getting into the christmas spirit..
this is hubbys favorite ornament from when he was a wee one.. we all love it..

 i love taking photos of the christmas tree.. i love creating these bubbles with the lights.. just looks so dreamy..

our little girls are SO fun right now.. they are so dramatic and a bit of work {ahh-hemm}..
  but i can just stare at them in amazement for hours.. they are so precious and they are my heart.

 here is a tip.. hang some mistletoe in your doorway.. it will create a lot of giggles.. guaranteed.

 i finished up my last wedding of 2012.. here is a teaser pic..
it was is san francisco and it was so magical.. i will share it with you soon.. it rained for days and cleared for just a couple hours to get some amazing pictures.. these two are so in love and so special.

 i am obsessed with the website the glow... i know you have heard me talk about it before, the photography is so amazing and all the uber stylish working moms that fill the pages make me so happy.. i just have such love and respect for moms who love what they do, juggle the house and still make themselves a priority.. and let's talk about this wallpaper?? {so amazing right?}

this is basically my everyday.. i sit with my my desk.. listening to tunes while i edit, surf and sing.. these coffee cups are a great gift and one of my go to's.. they are from anthropologie and i love to gift them in sets of 4 or 6 with the families last name initial..

Lemon blossoms.
do you bake?
 i have to share this recipe for some amazing-ness...
i am NOT a baker.. by any means, sorts or kind..
but these i can do..
they are always a hit and you have to give them a whirl..

and what do you think of my new logo?
i just wanted something clean and fresh..
i am very happy with them..

check out some new photos and updates on my website..
i still can not believe what a great year 2012 has been..
sometimes i really feel i am the luckiest..

and have i thanked YOU for reading my blog lately?
seriously from the bottom of my heart.. 
i can't say how much it means that you stop by, check in and want to read my rants, obsessions, complaints and silliness..
