Family Photo Session

I am so excited to share our gallery from our family session with Alexis Ralston Photography. We went to a beautiful spot in the Morongo Canyon Preserve. If you haven't been following along with Eloise's chair picture updates (you can find all of the updates here) we take weekly pictures of her on a rocking chair to show how much she has grown each month. The rocking chair has been in my family for a long time. It was my Grandma's mother's and she passed it down to my grandma, who passed it down to me, and I will pass it down to Eloise to rock her children in some day. It's beautiful, heavy and nick was amazing for carrying it to our photo spot. It was actually my photographer's idea and I am so happy we ended up using it! 

And if you're in the CA high desert and in need of a photographer, I highly recommend Alexis. She is so sweet, easy going and has an amazing eye for finding beauty and capturing moments that I will treasure forever. Some of the photos of Eloise's outfit are actually mid breakdown, but Alexis kept snapping away and everything turned out beautifully. You can find Alexis here

Pine + Honey Handmade sent Eloise her beautiful olive school girl dress and floral bloomers for the photos. Sydney does amazing work, the clothes are really high quality and all of the items in her etsy shop are handmade by her. She's the sweetest mama and you can really tell that she pours her hear into her business. You can visit her shop here

Starry Knight Design sent us these moccasins and I'm seriously jealous. I would buy them if they came in my size. If you know me, you know I'm all about the fringe, so these stole my heart the second Melanie released her fall collection. Based out of Montana, starry knight designs makes high quality leather shoes and moccasins with soft soles for babies and kids. The soft soles are great for crawlers, and wonderful for their feet and balance when they tart walking. AND they stay on!! Eloise loves to pull off shoes and she doesn't with these. You can shop her shoes here

Here is my family, my favorite people, my little tribe.
