Last week Bella Bundles held two photoshoots; one staged at my home and the other on the beach in La Jolla. With 3 babies, 1 toddler, 6 four - five year olds and 7 adults in the house and on the beach, things were a little...nuts, to say the least. The photographer and all adults had their hands full! There was crying, pooping, screaming, food spills, children wandering into the ocean with new products, etc. etc. Despite all of this and the normal obstacles that a photographer faces, we managed to get excellent photos for our new branding and marketing...

Sabrina - Today you did two unique things.  One was fabulously exciting and the other was not so fabulous.....First, you whistled!  I was so excited to hear you do it and tried to make a big deal about it so you would feel proud.  You did.

  Sabrina was a scheduled C - Section.  Born 3 1/2 weeks early due to Placenta Previa.  From the beginning she cried night and day.  I remember when she was just two days old I had my first break down in the hospital.  The nurse had yelled at me for not being able to stop my baby from crying.  What she didn’t realize was that my baby was crying all the time and no matter what I did, nothing seemed to help.  After 4 days of no sleep, C-section pain and soar nipples I was temporarily rescued.  A nurse came...
