rebeccacaridad My favorite part of Xmas is we get all the kids to stay over and have the morning here. Today I was woken up by a pile of laughing and squealing...Sadie was a little annoyed to have her space invaded, but I loved it. Happy Christmas all! 4d

rebeccacaridad Whole 30 through Christmas bone broth cooking on the stove, a little veggie and bacon dish about to go in the oven. My girl @ameliakauffman and I decided yesterday that our whole 30 is actually going to be a whole 60. Excited to keep feeling better and better. Merry Christmas Eve all! #whole30 #whole60 5d

rebeccacaridad Delivered my last wedding of 2014 yesterday. I'm so proud of this year for so many reasons. Still shocked that photographing weddings could make me feel so happy and fulfilled. I've never loved my job before this. Tonight we celebrate with sushi and the hobbit! #manzanitaphoto 6d

rebeccacaridad Worked on a photo using the brenizer method for the first time. I think next time I will focus more on the space above and around the subject as opposed to the bottom, but pretty fun to stitch all the images together and keep so much detail and depth of field. This ones from that lovely Scottish wedding we shot in October! #manzanitaphoto #brenizermethod 2w

rebeccacaridad When I meet beautiful women who have strength in everything they do, how they move their hands and the way they look at what is around them, in front of them. Lucille reminds me that we as women have to constantly adjust to what the world says is beauty, we have to forever find ways to make ourselves fit into that idea. Lucille embodies a contradiction to this I think, I think when we are unapologetically here, we are most stunning. Lucille is here, right here in these photos, when you meet her, when she speaks and moves, it is an all encompassing, probably unknowing confidence. She radiates and she shares it. Almost as if when you are with her you become stronger, more beautiful, more radiant. It's a gift. You can see more of this beautiful lady on the blog today #inbedsessions #manzanitaphoto @theblackvelveteen 2w

rebeccacaridad On Nov 11th Dustin and I marked 3 years of marriage. Normally I like to post a photo from our wedding and say something sweet about him. This year however, we didn't really like each other that much on our anniversary and I feel pretty strongly about not using social media to pretend everything is pretty and alright, so I didn't say anything. I wanted to share that post now when I really mean it. After 3 years of marriage and 7 years of loving this man I can say that people trigger the shit out of each other and we don't always know how to support the other person how they need to be supported. I can say that some days I wonder why the hell we as humans like to try and choose one person to be with for our entire lives. I can say that loving someone changes shape and it seems to always find a way to stay relevant to you and your life. I can say that to have a partner to do all this hard and magical stuff with is a blessing, one that I still don't think I fully understand. I can say that I was really young when I met my husband and I am so happy that there was a small part of me that was smart enough to choose someone so loyal and so good. I can say that even when I think I hate him and that we will never come back from something, we do, and we are stronger and more solid than we were before. I love, love, love my husband and feel so grateful for a man who is patient with me while I am in pain, and while I am confused, and while I am figuring things out. Happy Anniversary D!

  •   nennyxsunshine Lord, as if I didn't totally adore you already. I am just a young girl and sometimes I wonder how people do that...choose one person, forever. And when people let me down, sometimes it's so easy to be cynical about that little thing we call love. You give me hope! 2w
  •   nennyxsunshine Needless to say, LOVE this post. 2w
  •   style_and_conversation I was already full of admiration for you & your beautiful pics - but now! Well, it's hard to say how much I am grateful for your words & for feeling 'pretty strongly about not using social media to pretend everything is pretty & alright'. Thank you for being so transparent about the challenges of marriage but for doing it in such a beautiful way - we all have things happen in life that are less than perfect, but few want to admit it. So thank you also for being real! 2w
  •   laypay Congratulations to you both! I love your honesty so much; love is complicated, people are complicated, and it's the struggle that really makes all of it worth celebrating. Thank you for sharing. 2w

rebeccacaridad This process of becoming a foster to adopt parent seems to be a series of case workers getting our hopes up and then other caseworkers shooting them down. I know they are just doing their job and I'm so grateful to them for working late and being diligent. Today we had another big set back and I'm trying to stay positive. I know that this will play out exactly how it's supposed to but it's hard to really embody that when the future is given to us and then changed drastically and possibly taken away. Trying to breath and have faith in this life. Hoping for clarity and strength right now. 3w

  •   shecraftsdoom Delurking to say I've been so happy for you, both with your photographic adventures and now your fostering one. I'm sure it's so emotionally taxing but I just know it will work out exactly as it's meant to and will be very much worth the wait. This might seem weird and I don't know if maybe the book's already been recommended to you, but I, coincidentally, read Nia Vardalos' Instant Mom a few months back, all about her experience with the adoption process here in Los Angeles. I wouldn't have thought myself her target audience but I loved it. Very touching and funny and frank, I was moved both to cheers and tears for her. Maybe it'll help you or at least make you smile a little while you experience the inevitable frustrations. Best of luck to you; I'm holding all the good thoughts for your little family! 3w

rebeccacaridad These two were so perfect to work with. They made their photos a priority. They put aside time for them, didn't let the wedding take over, kept their priorities straight, and loved each other a lot through the whole two days of celebration! Here's to more lovely couples like Kelsey and Eddie in 2015! 3w

rebeccacaridad We might be getting our little one soon. When we were in Scotland talking about adopting through foster care I saw this adorable hand knit sweater in Inverness and snatched it up. It was the first thing we ever bought for our babe and I can't wait to see it on him. 3w
