holidays + a recent photoshoot

I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away! This has been my busiest season ever, and my first really full business holiday season. It's been a little nuts, and this week I finally got to relax, watch Christmas movies with my family, drink hot chocolate, go to The Grove in LA & Disneyland, write cards to friends, burn yummy smelling candles, and listen to lots of holiday music. All the special holiday festivities that I love so much. IMG_8353* edit

I participated in the Santa Ana Patchwork show last month, where we got rained poured on! I'm now finishing up just two more photoshoots this year, and then I'll be focusing on planning 2015 (also, I can't believe it's going to be 2015. I need a pause button).

Here are a couple favorite photos from my session with a family friend's cute little family. I really love toddlers.

New art print: baby snuggles!

I've turned one of my favorite greeting card designs into an 8x10 digital print, available in my Etsy shop!

I love the mother-child bond. It's so beautiful. Baby snuggles are my favorite thing in the whole world! The days when they fit completely in your arms and rest their heads on your chest. Those days pass so quickly, but you want those moments to last forever. There's nothing sweeter.

This art print would be perfect in a child's room or family living space to remind you of those sweet moments, well beyond when the baby grows from infancy to childhood to adulthood.

Print will not include the watermark (© Mary & Luna). Frame not included.
