I am so excited to share with you a new series I will be starting with my little girl! It will be called “A day in the life of…” Growing up, I must say I’ve gone through so many different stages in life trying to figure out what I wanted to do in the future. (btw, I’m still soul searching) So, I thought it would be a great opportunity to help Emma discover herself and find out what she loves to do. This isn’t a means to pressure her in anyway, but to open her up to new experiences and involve her in the process. I want to show her that there are so many unique and creative careers out there in this world.
I never grew up thinking that photography could actually be a career path for me, but I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to surround myself with like-minded people and found a passion for what I love doing. The biggest thing for me is to be able to provide Emma with all the resources she needs to experience life to the fullest. I think its very important for us as parents to involve our children into our every day lives. Even through these moments I share with my daughter, I can see myself growing as an individual and am so blessed to be able to do life with her.
With that said… For our first series, Emma had the opportunity today to live the life of a florist. My very talented sister-in-law is the owner of Echo Floral and she joyfully took Emma through her weekly schedule. We started off by visiting Mayesh, a floral mart located in Orange County. Emma learned the different floral names and loved smelling the different flowers. She kept on repeating, “butterflies eat nectar”, every time she touched a flower. Hanna was so great involving her in the process by asking about the textures of the flowers and how they looked. Emma is totally a hands-on type of girl so she had so much fun feeling the bumpy, spiky, soft and smooth flowers. She was so excited about being able to choose her favorite pink flowers to take back home with her. The best part to end the day was when she was able to make her very own flower arrangements!
Check out some of the photos of our trip below! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
