Las Fotos Project: Empowering Photography Programs For Latina Youth

lasfotosproject                        {Photos belong to the Las Fotos Project}

I am thrilled to share with you all a project that I’m backing up 100%.

Las Fotos Project is a nonprofit, community-based, arts mentorship program that serves Latina youth, ages 11-17, in the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Through their 12-week semester photography projects and creative writing workshops, Las Fotos Project educates and engages participants to become leaders in their community by documenting and sharing their stories. You can learn more about LFP here: www.lasfotosproject.org

They currently have a fundraiser on Crowdismo and are halfway towards their goal. The goal is to raise $5,000 for their upcoming summer and fall programs within the next 5 days. Additionally, they are always looking for LA-based photographers who can commit to volunteering for 12 weeks, a time commitment of 2 hours per week. That info can be found here:www.lasfotosproject.org/volunteer.

I’m so excited to share that @panerabread is now offering delivery in select cities including Palm Springs!

This is hands down such a life-saver for us busy moms that are looking for healthier delicious options without leaving the comfort of our homes and having to pack the kids up just to grab a quick bite to eat. #sponsored #mypanera #PaneraDelivers #panera #momsonthego #busymom
  • 🍭Oh Lexi, you’re so full of sweetness and sass. Wondering if it’s true what they say...The youngest will surely give you more gray hairs. 🤣🙈 .
.
And if you have a winter baby, I’ve got a cute birthday idea for you on our blog. Check out how we celebrated Lexi’s 2nd bday. Link in bio. ❄️🎂 📸 @lilyro_ 😍 #terrifictwos #winter #birthdaygirl
  • Mom life is definitely not easy but seeing my kids eyes light up when they learn something new or see something magical🌈, that right there makes it all worth it. 💕#makeeverydaymagical #magicofchildhood #momofgirls

And if you’re kiddos are animal lovers too, check out our San Diego Zoo stories before they expire. Hint: Cutest bears we ever did see☺️
  • Con mis amores en el zoológico. 💕 At the zoo with my little loves. 👧🏻👧🏼 🐼 🐒 🦁 .

Someone recently asked me how on Earth I go  to places like the zoo or Disneyland with these two alone. The truth is, it’s not easy. Yes, sometimes my husband or my mom come along but they’re not always able to. So what’s my secret? .
.
I pushed myself to do it once. I thought, if it’s a total fail oh well, at least I gave it a shot. And well, I’m here to report, I survived, they survived and we have tons of good memories (I don’t think they’ll remember the tantrums🤪) to look back at from it. *Tip: Buy a Zoo membership or theme park annual pass or Groupon. Go early in the am when there’s less crowds. Stay for a few hours and leave before it gets too crowded. And bring lots of snacks. 🤣You got this mama!! 💪☺️ #sandiegozoo #twinningtuesday #momofgirls #motheroverloadhair
  • Most of you know my oldest is severely allergic to eggs. For that reason, date nights with the Mr. tend to turn into brunch dates. Which is why we were so excited to get invited to the opening of @toasttemecula 😋

Loving all their delicious menu options from chilaquiles verdes & micheladas, adorable pancakes w/ berries & kiwi for the kiddos to healthier colorful options like their avocado toast w/ egg🥑 and vanilla ice ice charcoal matcha. 🍵 Oh and did I mention they even have gluten-free options and play 90s music? 📻 🙌🏼😍

That mom guilt is real yo! Some days are harder than others, right? But we got this mamas. 💪 Trying my best to carve out quality time with my girls and really being present. It’s my goal moving forward not just this new year but FOREVER. Joting down girl dates, hubby dates and family dates on my calendar and making them a top priority. And that includes putting the phone down. 😜

What are you focusing on this year or trying to change for the better? #momguilt #bepresent #dailyparenting 📸 @lilyro_ 😍💕😘
  • Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So today is my new favorite day. ❤️ - Winnie the Pooh

We loved taking these two little loves of mine to see @disneyonice Follow Your Heart. Check out our stories before they expire! ☺️⛸The show is so so good! And side note, I had a complete Mom fail. I forgot to take a photo of them. 🙈😭 So leaving you with this one taken by the amazingly talented @lilyro_ in their princess dresses. 👯‍♀️👑👑 #elenaofavalor #disneyonice ❄️☃️⛸
  • Zoom in!!! 🤣😂🤣

Throwing it back to a couple months ago when I went solo for the first time with these two little loves 🤪...This pouty face happened when a cast member volunteered to take the pic for me & Pluto graciously photo bombed it. 😂Oh Hi Pluto!👋
