My uncensored journey through fatherhood: laugh with me and at me as I try and figure out how to construct a family.

Caught her kissing herself in her vanity - we’re in so much trouble.

Location scouting with my girls for an upcoming photography session this afternoon.

These aren’t just pretty pictures to me. This is captured grace. These are memories I am holding hostage because I refuse to forget.
This is my wife, 16 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby girl, holding the “tickle sticks” my 2 year old daughter plucks from our neighbor’s yard and the garden roses that she loves to hold and inhale. For more than a year, the only way I could get her to stand still for a photograph on our walks was to ask her to stop and smell the roses.
This is a memory. This is the growth of my family and foundation of my happiness.
This is not a picture.

This couple has been stuck in the hospital and their twins have a rare condition and they were born extremely prematurely and will be in the NICU for months.

Took a stroll around our neighborhood today - 16 weeks pregnant and Riley Mae is still giving momma morning sickness.

One more month and the purchase of our new home will be complete! (And by new - I mean old 1950’s home :) It has a huge yard with 75 year old trees and a white picket fence!

Being a young adult and being able to afford a home in Orange County, CA is a huge accomplishment and we’re pretty excited :)

I can’t wait for Ashtyn and Riley to grow up together here.

lovethelightsout asked: Do you have Riley's middle name picked out?
