In our upcoming school break day this Monday, we’re hosting a 2x4 challenge. I love challenge days! With limited materials and open outcomes, kids have the opportunity to do some serious creative work. Each kiddo will have one 8’ 2x4 to make with what they please. Think structures, furniture and sculpture. Makers will work through design, planning, construction and problem solving all with guidance and support. Let’s make cool stuff together!
Pro Tip: Check out the packages and memberships tabs on our kids page for ways to save on school break days.

Fun fact: Aside from helping with chronic pains, acupuncture can increase blood flow to the brain without increasing blood pressure and pulse ratings.

Happy Working Parents Day! I’m so thankful to do what I do for a living. Owning Lavish Beauty Lounge has allowed me (Daja) the ability to make an income and spend quality time with these growing babes of mine. Where are my fellow working mamas at? 🙋🏽

This is what my morning looks like. Check my stories, I’m also pumping while hanging out with these two. It’s not a Pinterest perfect and I can’t be. There are Pinterest moments and then there is the rest of your life. Don’t let people’s perfect post convince you their life is perfect. They are just showing you the highlight reel. If you know me, you know I’m real and I talk about how hard it is to be a mom with mental illness and some days ( a lot of days) simply suck and sometimes kids are really fucking hard to mother. Sometimes you literally want to run away and never come back #facts
. As long as there is love, maybe everything will be alright. As long as there is someone to listen to you vent, maybe it will be ok. As long as there is someone to lend a hand, maybe it will be ok. And sometimes it’s ok to not be ok, god damn it! It’s also ok to admit you’re not ok..... this is hard.
Life is hard but every now and then you get to look at your two babies and know it’s worth it. .

I’m leaving early in the morning for a 9 day trip to Italy- this will be the longest by far that I’ve been away from my baby 😢 As I was tucking her in tonight we were shedding a few tears together, and I told her I would be thinking about her the whole time- to which she responds “okay...but try not to be sad about it Mommy” 😍 I don’t know how I got so lucky with this kid. I’ll return on the 18th, and will mostly be unavailable until then, so please be patient with my response time over the next week ❤️
Time for some super hero training! 🦇

Trying to take cute photos with your toddler.. Ahh the beauty.
Just a little chocolate drizzle underneath a bed of gluten, nut and dairy free oatmeal fudge bars to get your taste buds fired up this morning 😋 We also have fresh, dairy free banana bundt cakes and lemon raspberry muffins. Fresh egg and dairy free options today are blueberry scones, honey oat bread and oatmeal cookies. Come see us until 4pm and try one of these for yourself!
The next few months are going to be filled with visits from friends! Coming up next, THIS Friday, September 7 you can spend some time with the Pirate Captain and the Polynesian Princess at our beautiful location in Park Hill. 10 am or 6:30 pm. Tickets can be found through the link in our bio.
In October and November look for visits from two more pairs. 💜🍎🌹🌸
So I have taken some time off from Befree Moments because I had an interesting pregnancy and a wild delivery. I’m still recovering from our csection, 13+ months later. Well I’m pleased to admit I am back in full swing! I photograph everything from maternity and newborn to senior sessions, family photography , women portraiture and boudoir. I am running a ridiculous deal this year only in the spirit of me coming back to Photography full time. Fall minis are booking now. And I’m also gifting an awesome product to you if your friends and family book through me too. And trust me you will want it! Here is more info about when and where, and how to book. Thanks friends for supporting this dream of mine! http://www.befreemoments.com/new-events/2018/9/23/fall-minis-only-99
