Hey guys! Today is a happy Monday because I'm doing my first Mayanin Photography giveaway! I feel so blessed to have found my passion. I thank The Lord  for putting Kevin in my life, because if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have Gavin, and if it wasn't for Gavin I wouldn't have found my #1 inspiration, which is my precious loving little Gav. 

So after almost 9 years, I finally got the courage and the push to pursue my photography dream and so far is doing pretty well. I mean I get to work with cute little nuggets. How fun is that? Well, if you love kids it is. 

So to celebrate I thought I'd do a Christmas Mini Session Giveaway for your little ones!
 Love it? Great! Now lets get down to the details.
Session is 30 minutes long. It includes 10 digital edited images and photo release. 
All you have to do is:
2. Follow Mayanin Photography on Instagram and tag @MayaninPhotography on one of your kids photos.
3. That's all folks! 

Good luck familia!

Contest ends December 3rd and it's open to New Jersey and New York Residents only.
 (winner will be randomly chosen)

Shot this outfit almost 3 weeks ago and I had completely forgotten about it. I have been so busy with my photography that I barely have time to shoot my outfits nor remember I shot them. 

And now with the holidays around the corner...ay ay ay...more photoshoots, which brings me to a mini photo session giveaway I will be hosting soon! So stay tuned for that. Catch you on the next post!

Last night we met up with Gavin's bud Jace and of course with his parents and went out for some trick or treating! These two kids were so funny together.  What one did, the one did as well. It was very fun to watch. 

I would say this Halloween was the best one yet. Gavin was more aware of his surroundings and he was talking more, so you know I was "aww-ing" every single time he said" trick or treat"
Jace also enjoyed trick or treating this year. Last year he spent all his time in the wagon with Gavin and this year he was running around making his monster voice while trying to scare people. It was super cute!

So it's safe to say we all had fun. How was your Halloween? Until next one! xo



Yesterday we went to the Halloween Parade here in New jersey and it was a blast. Gavin was the Joker from Suicide Squad, but before I spray painted his hair Green, he looked like he was from the TLC show Toddlers & Tiaras. And guess what?! He won first place for best costume!  Cha-Ching!

By the end of the parade we were all tired and hungry. ( just look at his face in the photo, mean mugging) I just wanted to get home, bathe Gavin and remove all my makeup and shower, but of course my little Joker fell asleep on the way home. It was quite painful to wake him up, but I couldn't let him stay asleep like that.
 Tomorrow will be round 2, we'll be trick or treating!
Or as Gavin says "Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me happy halloween"
I don't correct him, I like his version. :-) 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And stay safe.

So this is my Baby costume from Dirty Dancing. The shoot didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted. Kevin got out of work late and by the time he was ready to shoot the lighting sucked. Then my little Johnny Castle wasn't into it, he just wanted to run, which is understandable, after all he is a 3 year old boy. Also hate that I wore a white bra! Anyway, hope you guys like this one and my attempt to dirty dance. :-)



 In the spirit of Halloween I decided to play dress up, so I went on Pinterest and searched for some last minute costumes. A lot of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's came up, but everyone always does that one. Then I remembered I had an Audrey Hepburn 4 DVD movie set. I saw Funny Face and Jo Stockton it was! The best thing about this "costume" is I didn't have to buy a damn thing. So if you're out of ideas give this one a shot. 

I have another classic costume up my sleeves and I won't have to buy a damn thing for this one either. But you'll have to stay tuned for that one. I will try to incorporate Gavin into this one and I think it will be super cute!

If you have any more movie characters costume ideas, I'd love for you to share them with me. 
I am having too much fun!
