Chaos, craziness, tears, laughs, and lots of love. That’s what I call life with newborn. And this little girl gets extra points for giving us so many laughs!

I’m a fond of harsh, sunset light, so is Teo and his brown, huge eyes:D

And I absolutely love when during these 5 calm minutes during day they hug and play together…

What a journey! She gives us so much joy and laughs! I love how stubborn and nervous she is. I love how fearless she is, how she follows her big brother, how she fights him and plays with him. I love how curious and adventures she is.  She has more teeth than hair, and she wakes up at 6 am everyday, but everyday she welcomes us with big smile on her face. I love you Esmeralda Liliana Micali!

Happy Birthday Cecilia!

Three; it’s the magic number.

Ceceilia, Jimmy and Teo have known each other almost since day one, three years ago. They spend rainy days and sunny days together. Their moms and I go through the good times and bad times. During motherhood’s hard times when you need someone you can trust and be honest with, we have each other. I can’t imagine the last three intense years of my life without them. I’m truly grateful for having them in my life.

These pictures are documentation of a fun time celebrating Ceceilia’s third birthday. They are also a record of three friends which have shared their young lives together and who are the basis of a special bond between three moms.

Simple moments

It can be really hard… really, really hard…

Sleepless nights, lots of crying, whining, and screaming (on both sides:))

Days full of “NO!” . Nights full of “Whahhh”

Constant testing, checking my limits.

No break, no eating time, no coffee time…no me-time.

But, then there is this quite moment, when we lay in bed, we sing for the hundredth time “wheels on the bus” and he gives me a hug and whispers to my ear “I love you mommy”.

And there, I’m melting, I’m crying, I’m smiling, all at once.

The love, the gratitude, the happiness in this simple moment is almost too much to take for one person.

My husband pointed something out the other day, something that I didn’t even think about. Parents are the ones who ask me to photograph their children and them, but these photographs aren’t only for the parents, they’re for the children too. What a nice thing for a child to someday be able to see themselves when they were younger and to see how much love their parents are filled with. I think it’s fantastic that they will have an image revealing how much they are loved by mommy and daddy.

This moment is more precious than you think

A couple of weeks ago I spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon with this lovely family. When we were walking through the park we found this written on the pavement, ” This moment is more precious than you think”. It’s such a perfect quote for that day. It’s a perfect quote for everyday. That’s why I’m a photographer; to capture these moments, so after they pass, you can always come back to them.

Brooklyn

Ostatnio duzo spaceruje, pstrykam, probuje nie myslec, skupic sie na zdjeciach, na miescie, na ludziach, na wszytskim byle nie na tym co sie dzieje wokol mnie. Tak jest zdecydowanie latwiej i bezpieczniej, I myslalam, ze mi sie udalo, ze oszukalam sama siebie, ze jest dobrze, ze sie nie przejmuje, ale widac kiepska ze mnie klamczucha, bo moje cialo oszukac sie nie dalo i glosno krzyczy, ze jest mu zle. Pewnie powinnam sluchac i uwazac, ale wole zyc w tej iluzji, zludzeniu, poki moge.
No bo w sumie kto nie zyje?
