This month wraps up my second year to complete one of my favorite projects .. just us!  As I’ve learned all to well, it’s so important to get yourself in the photo, too.  If you haven’t started, please make a promise to yourself and your children to include yourself in your photos with your family!  I have many of my images from the last two years hung as gorgeous canvases around my house.  They always make me smile!  Thanks for my wonderful group that shared this journey with me this year!  Love you girls!!!  xoxo

san diego child photographer | what choosing joy looks like | october 2012

I wasn’t too sure I’d participate in the circle this month because I didn’t think I had a creative set of images to share.  When I opened the files, I decided I’d go ahead and post what I had because these will still be important to the one who matters the most … Brooks.  These are still the memories I want him to remember and think back on with fond memories.  This month I decided to choose joy, inspired by Ashley of lilbooblue who also battled cancer.  I bought a beautiful necklace and some wristbands to share from Ashley’s shop  … both with the phrase … choose joy.  This has helped to reshape my days with a positive attitude.

Dear Brooks,

Each day you teach me so much.  You are the reason I choose to live with grace and joy.  You are the one who brings smile and laughter into every day.   Thank you!

I just have one quick snap of your second grade performance with Mr. Lee.  You and  your classmates did a great job singing!

san.diego .lifestyle.photographer 0701 san diego child photographer | what choosing joy looks like | october 2012

Every chance you get, before and after soccer, you love to shoot a few hoops.  It always cracks me up to see your ‘style’ as you shoot!  You are starting basketball this week and I hope you continue to love it and hopefully you still love the game.

You did a great job representing your team as team captain.  The season wraps up this next weekend and I couldn’t be more proud of you and your team.  Pretty impressive to finish your first season together as the runner up of your division.  You play with such a fierce passion!  Your speed and endurance is nearly unbeatable in defense.  Great job!

san.diego .lifestyle.photographer 0705 san diego child photographer | what choosing joy looks like | october 2012san.diego .lifestyle.photographer 0706 san diego child photographer | what choosing joy looks like | october 2012

You always set such a good example of choosing joy.  Whenever I see you with your friends, you are all so happy.  I have no idea what you all are always laughing at and maybe I don’t want to know, but I love seeing you so happy.  Here you are with your buddies, just before the school Halloween parade.

And a few from your class party.

After school, we went straight to our traditional Halloween party at Ms. Veronika’s house.  We’ve celebrated Halloween with this crew every year … love our friends!

To continue on with our busy week, we celebrated your 8th birthday with dinner out with your friends.  You three are SILLY!  So so SILLY!  You shared the Gangnam style video with them during dinner then the three of you decided to put on your own dance show … right in front of all the people at the Commons.  It was hysterical!

Your birthday weekend was wrapped up with the Color Run 5K.  Of course we were the early birds so we had great parking and had a chance to walk around and meet up with people before the run.  When we ended up on the front line of the start line, you decided that you wanted to run this on your own … I was just too slow for you.  At the start of the event, you were off like a shot!  You totally left me in the dust.  It was fun to cheer you on at the turn around point.  I cut out part of the race so I could run to the car and grab my camera to catch you come across the finish line.  You ended up being the 11th finisher overall.   It was an awesome experience to share with you!

san.diego .lifestyle.photographer 0724 san diego child photographer | what choosing joy looks like | october 2012

Before …. (you thought it was so funny that I was wearing a tutu to run in … I agree, but when else do you get to wear a tutu … it was a first for me).

san diego family photographer | just us twelve times | october 2012

It’s been exactly one month today, since my diagnosis with stage 3 follicular lymphoma.  As you can imagine it’s totally rocked my world.  Discovering I’ve got cancer has been the biggest heartbreak I’ve ever experienced , but along with that heartbreak has come immeasurable gifts of love, friendship, humility, forgiveness and prayer.  If you can believe it, I am so incredibly at peace and happy right now.  I have been blessed with the support and love of the photography community and my own local school community.  In addition to clean eating, I’ve started going to a yoga studio 4 days a week and a barre studio 2 days a week.  It’s amazing how much clarity you can walk away with after a yoga class.  I only wish I had started all of this so long ago.  I am so much more aware of what triggers my stress and I’m mindful to release it and avoid it.  Thankfully I’m feeling healthy still and I hope this practice of mind and body health will help me continue on for as long as possible.  I’m choosing to live in the present and  to find joy and grace in each day … and with that decision comes so much peace and happiness.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers!  It’s truly lifted me through some very hard days.  xoxo

On to today’s post … Brooks tagged along at a mini session with one of my favorite families last weekend, so I asked the sweet momma to snap a few of the two of us for today’s post.

And just like that,  it is time for another ‘just us’ post.  We are both enjoying the new school year so much.  Both Brooks and I have a wonderful class to share this year with.

Tuesday was picture day at school, so I brought my camera to pass off and along to grab a couple images before the day started.

September 13, 2012 - 10:20 am

Gail Pomare - Jules, you look fabulous, as does Brooks. Your school looks great too. The other day I thought about you and how I hadn’t seen you online for awhile, I was wondering if you were okay and I even checked out to make sure we were still fb friends and I hadn’t just missed your updates. Now I understand. I will be praying for you (and B) for sure. please keep us updated. xoxo

September 13, 2012 - 10:26 am

amy grace - jules, so much about this whole entry makes such a deep impression. first of all…YOU are breathtaking. you are the kind of forty six we only see on movie stars. but there is a light coming from the inside of both of you. love and connection and hope shine from within. and i am worried for you. and tremendously HOPEFUL for you. keep walking through it, no matter what “it” is, how it changes. you have strength and grace that are striking. let the best people take care of you and just take care of him. i know this kind of worry. i carry it around with me too. just breathe, as beautifully as you have been doing. big love…

September 13, 2012 - 12:45 pm

megan - Jules, you both look so wonderful and HAPPY! I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I will keep you in my daily prayers that God will watch over both you and Brooks each and every day. Lots of love to you!

tamsen - Wow! I started this post thinking ‘holy wow, HOT MAMA!!!’ and being so happy for you with the awesome changes in your life. Quickly my eyes have filled with tears, learning of this new curveball in your life. I am praying for you and I know that God will give you all that you need to get through this Jules. Praying for Brooks as well- I’m sure he needs them as much as you do. XOXO

I’m a child of a mother with stage 4 cancer… I lived it from that end. Stay positive!

October 7, 2012 - 6:43 am

Jennifer Olivas Romeo and Mae - Jules,
I haven’t been on the Bloom forum in so long and just came across your FB yesterday. I’m so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. You’ve always been one of the photographers that have stood out to me. Your work is inspiring and your sweet spirit is quite obvious even through the internet. I prayed for you and your family yesterday and in church this morning and I will continue to do so. I am very hopeful that you will receive the miracle you need. Never give up! :)
