Cameron & Amy // Fairytale inspired Los Angeles family photography

Our love story began many, many years ago. Cameron and I grew up being pen-pals, and one each other’s confidant. We shared all our ups and downs through all stages of our lives, always being a safe place full of comfort for one another.

Both of our lives were on very different paths for a very long time. The day our paths finally met up and we began walking hand-in-hand, we knew we found our place in the world.

We started a life together in Southern California and after two years, we welcomed a baby boy into the world. Ezra William has been the greatest gift and has changed us for the better in every way. He has taught us a new kind of love that is all encompassing. He has taught us patience, kindness, and warmth. He is one of the most important lights in our lives, and we feel lucky to be his. Watching him grow has been the most loving experience of our lives.

A year and a half after having Ezra, we were married at the Santa Barbara courthouse. Our wedding day was a celebration of what we already knew in our hearts, and we were beyond lucky to be able to share it with our close friends and family. The day was perfect in every way. There were no nerves, only excitement in joining our families together and celebrate the love and life we have built together.  It will be a day we will always remember.

As our lives continue on, our love will only grow, and we look forward to the many years we get to spend together as a family.

 

love, Amy

    Leighton’s First Birthday // Los Angeles family photographer

    FROM LEIGHTON’S MOM // As a business owner/florist, becoming a new mama was equal parts exciting & terrifying. Throughout my pregnancy I debated numerous times with myself on whether I could still do both, own a business & be a mother. Debating whether or not vendors and clients would take me seriously with a child, or mind if I brought him with me to do business at times. Now, a year later, I am SO deeply grateful I chose to do both. Being a business owner and florist brings me huge amounts of joy and a creative outlet, while being a mother is one of the most naturally fulfilling & purpose-giving things I’ve ever done (also, many other things like exhausting, I’m not trying to sugarcoat that one!) I really feel that being able to do both pushes me towards being the best version of myself, and a better wife & mother. Being able to take time for myself, and have a creative outlet is a way I refuel my soul and it allows me to love my family deeper. These things together make me feel truest to myself and that is why I am so grateful that, with the help of Jordon’s encouragement & support, I chose to do both. I couldn’t imagine my life any other way these days & becoming parents last year has been the biggest & best adventure Jordon & I have taken on together yet.
     
    Being Leighton’s mother is the most incredible thing. He is the splitting image of Jordon, and on most days carries a mellow, laid back composure that mimics his dad’s calming force so well. He is easy going & loves going new places. But also at a moments notice, or at the sound of a great tune, Leighton will raise that one eye-brow, throw a little sass on & break into a mini-dance party, letting everyone around know that he is most definitely, my son. It is so fun to see him grow, and become a mover and a shaker of his little world. Jordon and I both can’t believe we’ll have a one year old in just a few short weeks, and we can’t wait to continue to watch his personality unfold. As he turns one my hopes for him are that he would feel love that has no bounds, be a mover and a shaker of this world, and always, always dance it out.

      FROM THE MOMMA // Pregnancy with Aria has not been like anything I ever imagined. My knowledge of pregnancy was fairly limited, but I always imagined that I would at least be aware of when it happened because of all the common symptoms in the beginning.  I was completely unaware for a month and a half that our little one had quietly placed herself and taken up residence; waiting to surprise us with her presence. If I hadn’t mentioned my missed cycle to Andy, we may have gone on for another couple months without even suspecting her there.  It even took me a couple of weeks before the news really started to sink in and I began believing that there was in fact, a little, precious miracle growing in my womb.
      I have to admit, after hearing numerous stories from others, my pregnancy has been a breeze, and I feel incredibly blessed.  No morning sickness, no heartburn, no weird cravings – just a huge, itchy belly and the occasional swollen ankles and feet if I was sitting at the office all day. I sometimes think that this is all a trick to get me to agree to another baby and I’ll have morning sickness and all the awful symptoms doubled in the next round.
      I’m looking forward to meeting this little girl and learning about who God created her to be.  I definitely don’t feel like I’m totally ready for parenthood, but I’m trusting in the Lord that he chose Andy and I to be parents to this little one
      and to raise her well in his Love and that He will help us along the way.  Andy is just bursting at the seems to hold Aria in his arms and I think he hasn’t totally processed the hard reality of the sleepless nights and new changes and challenges of our new life with Aria that’s in store for us.  Then again, he may very well have, and is all the more excited and ready for it all; in which I am so grateful to call him my husband and the father of our child.  Aria is a very lucky and blessed little girl and I am so grateful to know that she is incredibly loved by so many.
