My four year old started preschool last week so I’m really working on boosting his immune system, especially as it gets cold and we are indoors more than usual. I’ve been giving him homemade organic elderberry syrup to keep his immune system up and make sure we still get plenty of fresh air outside. For colds, I found this organic medicine by @genexa at @newseasonsmarket It’s vegan, gluten-free, organic homeopathic chewable tablets and they taste like açaí berries! It’s for ages 3 and up. I like tablets because it’s easy to carry in my purse and it’s airplane safe. #organic #homeopathy #homeopathic #organicmedicine #portlandkids #portlandmom #portlandvegans #vegan #veganmedicine #glutenfree #veganmom #crunchymom #crunchymomlife #coldcrush #genexa #organiccoldmeds #glutenfreevegankids #glutenfreemom #glutenfreevegan #portlandmama #preschoolers #momsofpreschoolers #veganshare #veganfamily #vegankidsofig #veganfoodie #veganwins #newseasonsmarket

This is the Face of a Network Marketer.

Some people cringe when they hear that term. To be honest...I used to too. But obviously...not anymore.

I’ve heard “pyramid scheme”...scam...a waste of time... Well...it’s not any of those things. And sometimes all you need is perspective and a little education to understand what we do.

Think about it...if I started selling Bows🎀and🎀Tutus back in 2010 to make some extra cash...no one would have any negative thoughts about that. But the moment I start selling a “LIFESTYLE” that changed my very existence...I start hearing the negative comments, getting unfriended, and talked about, etc... But why?! I really have always wondered WHY?

Is it because there is an income opportunity attached to our products? Well...I really hope I’m not the first to inform you...but all products sold make money for other people and companies. That’s basic knowledge. 
Is it because all of a sudden we become positive, passionate and energetic about something? Because I’m pretty sure anyone who loves what they do does that. 
Is it because of a bad experience with another Network Marketing company? For that...I can only apologize. But truth is...we’ve all had bad experiences in life and we are smart enough to know that each person, company and philosophy is different. 
What we do matters. I’ve received so many messages this week from my customers and coaches who are absolutely crushing it. A coach who got to go on her sons field trip because of this side hustle...one who is no longer on Psoriasis meds due to our superfood formula...a mom who just started her picky son on Daily Sunshine THANKING Beachbody for creating this much needed shake. 
While some may continue to roll their eyes at me {us}...the work won’t stop. In fact...I feel like it’s just begun. 💗

Tomorrow, I’m going to be shooting my first editorial session in YEARS, and I’m super excited. In case anyone is wondering, the butterflies and nerves never go away before a shoot, even you’ve been doing them for years. Can’t wait to work with a group of intensely talented women tomorrow!

I love sort of romanticizing family life in photos.  Not because I am not aware that in reality, we have to nag all the time, kids fight, spouses lose their jobs, tears happen.  Family life is hard.  But, despite it all, there is a deep love in family--even amidst the chaos and the tears.  I don't think pictures portray a fake or staged reality, but showcase what is actually there deep down that we forget about in our day to day crazy.  Also, no staging necessary: This puppy is clearly well loved!! ❤️ .

11.16.16. My due date 2 years ago. I still remember it all so vividly. So tired of the daily throwing up, the exhaustion, the fear...all of it.
In a weird way I’m envious of this person. 2 months after this my life would be rocked and then 6 months after that I’d be changed forever. 
You can’t go back but I wish I could talk to her, I’d have so much to say but mostly I’d tell her she’s stronger than she knows. And even now I have to remind myself of that daily.
The thing about our children’s birthdays is that it’s a celebration for that child but it’s also a life changing event for the parents. And I am honoring and recognizing the woman in myself who became a new person these past two years. 
I won’t lie, sometimes I wish I could go back and live that life, to avoid the hurt and pain but I can’t. So, I press on every day and I won’t let it all be for nothing. I’ll let it continue to change me 🌱

Flexin’ for Friday!
.
Also because I’m so EXCITED to be seeing results from an amazing program that only requires me to work out FOUR days a week! And I get to do them from home!
.
I’m SO thankful for these at home workouts! I wouldn’t be in ANY type of shape if I had to try to get to the gym several times a week like I did before I had my son.
.
Are you ready to join me?! Shoot me a message so I can get you set up 😀

Happy almost weekend!!

With the holidays just around the corner and the buzz of holiday busyness setting in, what is it that you do to take care of you?
Self care can look so many different ways - a mindful walk, really savoring a cup of tea, getting an adjustment to release tension in the body... how do you keep your cup full?

Charlotte, mom and biz owner of one of Portland’s best stores posted this pic and comment (swipe) about my book yesterday. I’m telling you, if you haven’t been to Palace, YOU ARE MISSING OUT! Charlotte has curated the best collection of books (😄), clothes, homewares, products, jewelry, bags, etc, etc . . . it’s IMPOSSIBLE to walk out of there w/o something for yourself or a friend. QUICK STORY: If my memory serves me correctly I walked into Palace around the time Charlotte had her baby. I dropped off my book to someone there, the women said I'm not sure when Charlotte will get back to you. I was bummed because when you are selling stuff you want answers and 'yes's' and you want them now. And this feeling is 'TIMES TEN' when you are hustling your own book. A few days later, I followed up with Charlotte, she responded right away and said she would like eight books for the store. The next day I delivered eight books. And I've been delivering books to Palace ever since. About six or so months ago I asked Charlotte if I could do a book signing or an event with her. I don't ever feel weird asking to events or signings, it's just part of hustling a book. But what I do feel bad/weird/awkward about is asking someone to post my book on instagram. I know this seems ridiculous, but THIS IS HOW I FEEL. Don't get me wrong I still do it, actually I should probably do another 'ASK' to those who have read my book to post a picture/review of it. Anywho, Charlotte said, 'yes' to both of my requests, but wasn't exactly sure when either would happen. And then out of the blue yesterday as I'm finishing up Harvey's birthday stuff before he got home from school I peaked at instagram and 'BOOM' I got a great post about my book and a great picture too from Charlotte. Thank you @palacestore Here is your tip Portland Mommies and those visiting, take some time to yourself and go visit Palace.

Serving up roasted veggies with quinoa.  Ray is starting to become more interested in our food-not to eat I’m sure- most likely to play with.  He is covered in beets and sweet potato.

Do you ever feel pressure from society on what is “beautiful”? Or what is the right way to be feminine? 
Today, a man, decided he should tell me his opinion on my hair cut. He said something along the lines of how my hair way so beautiful when it was long and how now it’s too short- but it’s okay, he assured me because it will grow back. 
I kindly smiled and said, “nope, I like it short, heck I might even cut it shorter!” Most my life I have had short hair- I’m talking real short. I loved the edginess of it and changing up the style dramatically. But with each dramatic cut, I would feel really good about it and that at some point someone comes around and makes a comment something similar to this man today. This usually sends me into doubt and insecurity. 
But today was different.

Today I loved that the choice of length of my hair was an opportunity to own my own beauty, my own confidence and not allow another opinion (especially a man) to have any impact on how I felt. 
Ladies, you are beautiful any way YOU feel beautiful. Long hair, short hair, no hair, dyed hair, natural hair... no one can make you feel anything, without you giving them that power!

Love Tribe! Happy Thursday, I hope this week has been amazing for you.
❤️
Today I find myself thinking of buoyancy. What does it mean to live buoyant, without heaviness? I spoke in my last post about letting go of what no longer is serving us, and this is what leads us to live lighter. When we release, we create more space within.
🎈
What are you letting go of this week? Share with me if you feel called. Xo Dianna

So yesterday I did a thing.. 😍 I got my NBR extensions done with @hairby_kt at her beautiful new salon Mane and Co. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To say that I’m in love with my hair would be the a complete understatement. I’m a mom of two beautiful kiddos, almost 3 and 9 months. And it is so easy to fall into a mom slump and just not feel very pretty anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel so pretty with my gorgeous new extensions the transformation on the outside is amazing but what I didn’t expect was a transformation on the inside and for this I’m so thankful to experience the gift that I give to my clients when I give them the hair they always wanted but never thought that could have for one reason or another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Click the link in bio to apply to get the hair of your dreams today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you again Katie for making me feel beautiful! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m a mom of two beautiful kiddos, almost 3 and 9 months. And it is so easy to fall into a mom slump and just not feel very pretty anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel so pretty with my gorgeous new extensions the transformation on the outside is amazing but what I didn’t expect was a transformation on the inside and for this I’m so thankful to experience the gift that I give to my clients when I give them the hair they always wanted but never thought that could have for one reason or another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the link in bio to apply to get the hair of your dreams today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you again Katie for making me feel beautiful! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #naturalbeadedrows  #nbrextensions  #nbrtribe  #portlandextensions  #portlandmom  #pdxhairstylist  #pdxhair  #oribe  #oribeobsessed  #schwarzkopf  #portlandbeautyblogger  #portlandhair  #malvahouse  #malvahouseofhair  #longhairdontcare  #bohymeluxe  #bohymehairextensions  #bohostyle  #bohemianhair  #livingmybestlife  #innerbeautyout  #portlandhairextensions 
Know what we didn’t do this year? Carve pumpkins. Know what I didn’t miss one bit? Carving pumpkins! We did a pumpkin painting party which was a huge hit and the kids decorated pumpkins with stickers at their school festival. No mess, super cute, and the pumpkins are still out on the porch for Thanksgiving!  #momtogs  #letthekids  #westlinnphotographer  #magicofchildhood #pdx #portlandmom #portland #pdxlife #pdxkids #mom_hub #momswithcameras #candidchildhood #cameramama #childhoodunplugged #childhoodeveryday #cpcfeature #dearphotographer #galleryoflightfeature #mom_hub #pixelkids #runwildmychild #sogreatisthepowerofbeauty #simplychildren #thehuntersoflight #wildandbravelittles

happy wednesday friends!! woke up dark and early to CRUSH my upper body workout. to be honest, it isn’t my favorite but can’t skip out on it 😝 .
i love coaching because the community it provides and the accountability it gives me. i almost avoided my workout but it’s important for me to start my morning right. i workout, have breakfast and listen to some personal development podcasts on the way to work! .
my morning routine helps keep me sane during the week. .
what do you do to help set yourself up for a productive, good morning?! .

This little guy and his mama were amazing to work with. It was so sweet to see the love he had for her throughout the whole session. The giggles, the smiles... the sense of security, that only a mother can bring ♥️

"'You're having a girl!' they said. But, I'm supposed to be a boy mom. That's what I knew, that's what I loved being. I couldn't have a girl. I couldn't handle the challenges girls bring and are faced with. Well, here she is. My tiniest best friend. My mini me. The toughest, sassiest, most strong-willed little human I know; and I had a hand in creating her. God knew exactly what he was doing when he gifted me my daughter." - @niki.and.crew #MamaMusing

GUYS...This might be an all time favorite Parent images. FOR SURE. 
The way baby is casually kicking dads face, and how determined he looks... to the scrunched up noses of mom and dad laughing with pure joy over their perfect little boy.... I can't even. 
It's just Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. <3

Sometimes in my birth class I see moments that take my breath away. It’s a moment like this, during a labour rehearsal, that you can feel the love and support. For a split second, you can see a glimpse into their birth, and how connected they will be. The peace and calm and love for each other and the one they are about to meet is palpable. And it makes my heart swell to know babies are being born into such love. ❤️❤️❤️

For #transformationtuesday I wanted to share with you guys a little behind the scenes of what really goes into my job! Yes, I get to work at home and yes it’s super glorious at times. 😜😉 But there are very large parts of my job that you never see! LiveJoy is a full time business and I have to do alllll the business things! (Accounting, pay 30% taxes, have business insurance and registration, all the client emails and relations, advertising, equipment, scheduling, invoicing, etc etc.) but one of the most important parts of my job is forever continuing my education as a newborn photographer! From editing, to angles, to lighting, to newborn safety.... this is the behind the scenes that clients don’t ever see and sometimes even I forget about until I look at comparison pictures! I am committed to forever learning and growing to be better at my craft and I think that’s a huge part why clients return! They feel the passion in my work even when I was shooting in a tiny 10x12 room in 2016 🤷‍♀️ I do want you all to know how I’m in this for the long haul! This business has become my baby in more ways than I can explain! And I promise that your experience with me will reflect this. ❤️ I have so many clients that believed in me when I was still navigating my way, and it’s because of you all that I am here today. ❤️ so photographers, if you are struggling and feel frustrated don’t forget to look back and see how far you’ve come! Then dig your heals in and LEARN LEARN LEARN. Never stop learning. It will be the difference between you making it and you giving up. I promise. That’s the secret. ❤️

Today’s #transformationtuesday is me one year ago compared to me now.
.
The differences between these two pictures are more than just physical, they are mental.
.
A year ago I wasn’t working out consistently, nor did I care much about what I was putting in my body. I told myself that I just didn’t have the time to workout on weekdays between my full time job and being a wife and mom. A small part of me knew I was making excuses, but I pushed those thoughts aside. I lacked motivation and wasn’t making the time for myself that I so desperately needed to.
.
Today I am healthier than I’ve ever been. I’m getting up and pressing play on my workouts 4-5 days a week and when I’m too tired to get up in the morning, you better believe I’m making them up in the evenings. I am so much more aware of what I’m eating and trying my best to make healthy choices MOST of the time.
.
I’ve learned that I am worth it and that it’s important to MAKE the time to take care of myself. I am more confident and have more energy for the ones that I love. I am a much better version of myself ❤️
.
A big part of this change has come from coaching. Now that I have a group of women that I’m helping to motivate and hold accountable for living a healthier lifestyle it is forcing me to live up to those same standards and that is just the push I needed.
.
I thought coaching was going to be all about me helping women work hard, see results, and love themselves, but it has been so much more for me and I’m so grateful that I took a leap of faith and decided to start.

This guy 🥰 Poor thing is sick. Again. Talking in my stories this morning about what I think MIGHT be the culprit for all these cold bugs he catches. Any other parents have this issue?? It’ll be interesting to see if he gets fewer colds in the future 🤷🏼‍♀️ here’s hoping!

I try to photograph families in the most authentic and real ways, from catching that smirk on your babe's face before he tackles his brother on the bed, or the way your love looks at you with total admiration in his eyes. Being real is what it's all about guys. And by being real, we tend to have lots of fun...just sayin ;) ⠀

Who says I can't have lemons, limes and oranges in Portland Oregon? 
Oh yes I can !  Inside of my 2 green houses I have several citrus trees. As long as I can keep the inside above freezing during the winter months, I can grow citrus without any problems in PDX. To keep the inside from freezing I use a very small and economical heater fan, and during the warmer months I place the trees outside.

Enjoy the vitamin C and keep the flu and colds away ;) Like us at: www.peachskinportlandhealthcare.com

Elephant garlic for the cold and flu season. 
Plant: 
Elephant garlic is a perennial plant belonging to the onion genus. It is not a true garlic, but a variant of the garden leek. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk and broad, flat leaves much like those of the leek, but forms a bulb consisting of exceptionally large, garlic-like cloves. The best part? It has a very mild flavor for people who prefer a less strong garlic.

Ingredients for 2 cups of tea • 2 tsp honey • ½ clove of elephant garlic (instructions below)
• 1 squeezed lemon juice
• 1 tsp coconut oil organic, extra virgin • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated • 1 echinacea tea bag optional 
Instructions 
1. Combine ingredients under boiling water. Let steep at least five minutes before sipping.

The coconut oil is anti-bacterial, plus it coats your stomach and digestive tract, which is helpful first thing in the morning to help with digestion. Ginger is anti-inflammatory. The lemon is both soothing with the honey and alkaline-balancing. 
Enjoy

Last week I shared an event coming up for a cause that I feel so strongly needs more attention, human trafficking. Did you know that Portland, Oregon has one of the highest incident rates per capita for the sexual victimization of women, teens, and children in the United States? •
My goal for this event is to:
🎄Provide families with meaningful Christmas photos (With a 3 day rush delivery for Christmas) •

Last week I shared an event coming up for a cause that I feel so strongly needs more attention, human trafficking. Did you know that Portland, Oregon has one of the highest incident rates per capita for the sexual victimization of women, teens, and children in the United States? • My goal for this event is to: 🎄Provide families with meaningful Christmas photos (With a 3 day rush delivery for Christmas) • 🌎Raise funds to fight modern day slavery (all profit from the event is donated to Dressember, an amazing and impactful organization) • 💪🏻 Raise awareness of the fight and what we can do to help • You can schedule your mini under the “book online” tab on my website -linked in bio.

Yesterday made me so aware of how things can happen in life and you really have no control over it, and you also realize how fragile life can really be. Hold those closest to you tightly and love them hard 💛 Side note: I love a warm sunset glow in the evening, in the fall especially.

As Christopher was putting the kids down for bed, Fisher breaks the silence with “Daddy, we need to pray for Shepherd.” He replies, “okay, what would you like to pray about?” .
.
“I want to pray he loves God.” .
.
I choked up when he told me what she said and I’m choking up writing it here just contemplating God’s wonderful plan and how he uses the prayers of even the smallest.

Harvest Chicken Salad.  Look at that freshness! This time of year I usually go crazy making soup (and there is still plenty of time to do that) but it always feels good to load up on greens.  Topped this with seeds and dried cranberries.  I even gave Ray his first taste of chicken.
