Father and Son

I took these pictures of Bae and Baby Bae over a week ago. I’m not a professional photographer by any means, but hey, I’m rather impressed by how they turned out!

Feeling a tad bit better. 
Up we go!
A bit higher! 
And down we go! 

I really love capturing moments like this. I used my hubby’s camera, a Fuji, if anyone’s wondering. Shout-out to the hubs, for the awesome editing he put into the pics!


Bear the Supermodel

Well, no, not really. But you have to admit my kid is pretty photogenic.

Last weekend during #streetmeetLA, Bear was photographed by child photographer, Tina Clara. She took so many amazing shots of him, I honestly don’t have a single favorite. Here are some samples of her wonderful work:

Oh yeah, that giveaway

So, last week I mentioned I was giving away a little care package courtesy of Munchkin. Well, life happened (hubby returned from Ukraine with gifts, but that’s another post later this week), and I didn’t get a chance to do the giveaway.

Now, here it is!

I received this from Bear’s school and had two of them. Obviously, we don’t need two so I’m giving one away to a lucky follower! All you have to do is answer this question:

What is the best piece of parenting advice you’ve received since your LO has been here?

That’s all!

I’ll choose the best answer and will contact the winner to arrange shipping (I’m shipping with no cost to you!).

Please leave your email when you answer.

Good luck to all! Happy 4th!

Why My Son Has His Own IG Page

There’s often a debate on how much a child should be exposed on the world wide innanets when he has no say in that exposure. Some parents are very private with their children and you rarely see a pic of them. Some are like, ‘Hey, you want see a picture. I have 19797893423 of them. Here you go!’


Some parents decided their kids should have their own IG. I, for one, agree with this.

Yes, it might sound nuts. Why does a baby/toddler/child need their own IG page? Well, if the parent is known for something, I can see the kids having their own site so if people are interested in seeing photos or keeping up to date with them, they could just go there. A lot of celebrity parents do this and it makes sense, if you think about it.

Of course, I’m not a celebrity. Hell, I’m not even web famous. So why does Bear have his own IG?

Well, for starters, his daddy is a photographer. So Maks often test drives certain camera angles, lenses, etc. on Bear.

In addition to Maks being a photographer, Bear often accompanies him to different photo shoots where other photographers take photos of Bear:

I also tend to do vlogs and hair product reviews on Bear’s hair so it would be nice for him to have a page that’s just dedicated to him. Though, I’m slacking on updating it (it’s really brand new) but I hope I’ll start adding more pictures to it very soon.

Now, of course, there’s the issue of protection and privacy. There’s a reason why I don’t post pictures of Bear in his diapers and underwear. I also carefully monitor who is following me and his page.

Bear has already a small fan club forming from the likes of LAFC, the LA Metro system, and even the mayor, Eric Garcetti, commented that Bear had swag.
