The hardest job I ever had next to a sports field was being a goalie mom of not one, but two girls.  I admire their willingness to stand in the net and be the last line of defense. Emotions next to that field was gigantic from shouting and screaming to jumping for joy.  Being the first goalie season for both my girls, this household did not know what was COMING…nor did the girls see the ugly side of mom..acting like a lunatic when that ball is heading straight for my precious baby…o gosh….i would turn around and run without looking back…..do you know how fast that ball gets hit to the post?   I stand behind the post when they play..and boy…its grueling.

Watching your child full of confidence or with slumping body language when the save was not made. it’s heartbreaking.  Worst of all, it’s the looks of sympathy you get after your child had a bad game. That tilted head, sad eyes through the cage…saying MOM please help……and the  look from the other parents who are thanking God their child isn’t the goalie.  But building their confidence back up after the game is my job. Convincing them that they did the best they could and that is all that matters.  View full post »

Today we can officially wave goodbye to the winter blues and welcome -warmly-the arrival of spring!  We were lucky to have the most amazing show of blossoms in the park for this maternity shoot..and it was so beautiful. Kalpana was radiantly beautiful while her proud husband was smiling staring at his beautiful wife.

My little niece had her 1st birthday cake smash,,and she was supper cute. Copying everything her older two sisters tell her to do. But when they started singing Happy Birthday,,the dancing moves came out. Its amazing that little ones can hardly walk, but dancing is so natural.
