I'm very excited to share some personal photos taken by the talented Rebecca Caridad of Manzanita Photography. Rebecca lives in Colorado, but I got the opportunity to spend a weekend with her during her visit to L.A. doing calligraphy and capturing a day at the beach with my daughter. Her brand Manzanita features photography, calligraphy and floral design (just to name a few). She's definitely the jack of all trades and a very busy gal.

I'm not a front of the camera kinda person and always have been camera shy. My daughter is the complete opposite, she's quite the ham. What Rebecca captured was exactly what I was looking for. It portrayed my life with my daughter ever so perfectly. The little ones get big so quickly and photos have always been something that keep those memories alive for me. Usually when I'm taking photos of her I'm never in them, so it's always a nice change to see me with her. She's been my most important teacher of life ever and everyday with her is a gift.

Thanks Rebecca!
