May Photo of the Day

I’m so proud of myself for still going strong with this project! If you’re new here, this year I decided I wanted to do a 365 project, where I take a photo every day of the year. It’s been a fun way to make sure I’m using my camera every day. Today I’m sharing my May Photo of the Day installment! Thanks for following along! ๐Ÿ™‚

1 // Treated myself to some new skincare stuff from one of my favorite companies – Primally Pure!

2 // Picnic and walk by the waterfront!

3 // Lily had the best time making a stepping stone! Can’t wait to find a spot for it at the house ๐Ÿ™‚

4 // She planted some sunflower seeds and they started sprouting really quickly.

5 // I’ve gotten Lily some new board games, and Dinosaur Escape is one of her faves!

6 // Haven’t journaled in a while, and I’ve been feeling the pull to do it again but just can’t bring myself to do it yet, haha.

7 // Lily and I did home pedicures but she wouldn’t let me take a picture of her awesome blue nails.

8 // Word puzzle fun!

9 // I love colorful things. A lot.

10 // Last mother’s day as a mama of one! Next year I’ll be holding both my babies and I can’t even believe it.

11 // We started our first day of “preschool” and Lily is loving it!

12 // Photographed Emily and Nick’s maternity session today and it was perfection ๐Ÿ™‚

13 // Lily’s new calendar for school. She loves to use it ๐Ÿ™‚

14 // We had a picnic with my mom today at a local park by the river, and we had the best time! We flew our kite, blew lots of bubbles and laughed so much!

15 // I photographed Mykayla and Sean’s vow ceremony today. Can’t wait for their big wedding next year! ๐Ÿ™‚

16 // Lily’s new water table ๐Ÿ™‚

17 // She had so much fun painting Daddy’s nails!

18 // Lily and Daddy with their special cookies from Wilson Farm! ๐Ÿ™‚

19 // Lily finally got the hang of her balance bike! I’m so proud of her! And the best part of all is that she’s having soo much fun on it.

20 // Photographed one of my dearest friends! I can’t believe I’ve known her for 12 years now! She just had her third baby ๐Ÿ™‚

21 // Fishing on the lake with Nana, Papa, and auntie Alex! Super fun day ๐Ÿ™‚

22 // Popsicles! ๐Ÿ™‚

23 // I got these new highlighter/markers and I’m utterly obsessed with them.

24 // Lily picked these flowers from the yard for me, all on her own, and it melted my heart.

25 // Frosting cupcakes for the first time ๐Ÿ™‚

26 // Another picnic day with my mom! Love this photo with my sweet girl.

27 // 18 weeks!

28 // Helping Nana plant seeds in her garden.

29 // I finally found a kid sized umbrella that didn’t cost a fortune – $4 on sale! Lily loves it and used it the entire day she got it, lol.

30 // Fresh lilacs are the best!!

31 // I just loved the way the light was coming through the blinds onto my fiddle leaf fig.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending โ€œto readโ€ list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I donโ€™t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - Iโ€™m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!
