I believe in God wholeheartedly. I believe I have a purpose beyond anything that I can comprehend today. Maybe one day I will know this purpose fully, but for now, I am just happy to be on this path. Blessed.
My husband Amer and I started dating when I was 22 years old. I was magnetically drawn to him; I knew he was meant to be in my life. At 25, my champagne year, I took over the photography business from my mom, got engaged, married, and pregnant, all in one year. 2005 was a whirlwind year for me and I wouldn’t change a thing. I literally had the golden ticket. Blessed.♥
Throughout this blog I want you to get to know me and my life and all the things that I love; my family, babies, photography and everything in between. All the pieces that are close to my heart, hence the reason it has taken me so long to open my life in a blog. This is me, I just happen to take pictures.
To start this journey, meet my first born baby. My angel face, my monkey; Inara. She is 6 years old and she taught me everything I proudly know about motherhood. She is kind and loving. Maternal instinct is in her bones, she cares for all the people in her life and for those who aren’t. She prays for strangers, sick baby piglets, her family and friends. She is my prized possession. The name ‘Inara’ is Arabic, and it signifies the light, that illuminates the path of your life. She is both my light and the reason of my existence. We underestimated how perfect and powerful her name really was…
My son, Ishaia, is a swooner. He melts the hearts of all who meet him. He has a quiet strength that is irrefutable. He loves me to his core, a mama’s boy (to my delighted content), but he wants to be just like his dad (his baba). He is thoughtful, intense, cautious, loveable, and charismatic. He loves to make you laugh. Ishaia holds my heart, I am lucky to be his first love. He is 4 years old.
Iviya (spoken: Ee-Vee-Yaa)… even just saying her name out loud sounds dreamy and magical. She is my powerhouse. Her walk, talk and love is strong. Iviya is fierce with touches of delight. She loves to love. She adores her brother and sister and copycats all that they do. But she wants to be the boss, Inara and Ishaia abidingly play along, because she is just so darn cute. She will sing your ear off and kiss you till Tuesday morning. She finishes all her sentences with, ‘I wov u”. My baby is two.
Be safe, happy, healthy… loved
