So after checking my post out, do not forget to go through the round to see the amazing work of my talented friends =)

What is special this month? My nephew who I is like a son to me. He came to visit for the first time by himself and we have been spoiling him since the day he arrived. It was yesterday when he was a baby and held him in my arms. Months later I left Argentina because my work send me to assignments to different corners of the world. I went to Brazil, Mexico and USA. Traveling for months and coming to Buenos Aires a few weeks here and there. I loved my job and not knowing, I “was being trained” to learn to live apart of who I love the most: my family. I saw him growing up through photographs. I hugged and kissed him once a year for so many years but I have loved him like my own kid. I have missed him with my soul and body and I had no choice to learn to be far away from him celebrating his success at the distance and his pains in silence. Not being able to do much but always praying and thinking of him. This month my tens are for him. Celebrating his 17 years and feeling proud for the young man he became. This is Augusto.

After seeing checking these images out, join me going through the round starting with Charlotte. Her work is beautiful and her tens are always so inspiring!

This month my plan was to work around Christmas theme. But this year, beginning of December surprised me with tons of work. I launched my “bringing the life to all the grays in between” class and I have been happily busy with that. Plus my record in photo shoots that made me ultra busy with all the edits. I do not complain at all but truth is, I have gone to sleep very late every night to make sure all my clients receive my best and I have been so busy since beginning of November that I had to leave personal photography projects on the side. Yesterday was the day were I planned to work on my December 10-10 project and it was impossible. I was very close to say “I will skip this month” when I realized that I had already my ten ready to go! I realized that here I am to document my monthly tens and what better way to show you “december 10-10”! than my  c l i e n t s  s h o o t s. I had more shoots than ten so here I picked one of each and share some of the moments that touched my heart from the moment of the capture to the moment of the edit =).  Thank you to all my amazing clients.  Special thanks to all my clients in Houston that when you knew I was coming for a weekend, you made a two days trip become four days long and you gave me the chance to work with you again. And even more special Thanks to my new clients. I always LOVE to meet amazing people. So it has been so great and I feel so blessed and thankful right now * big heart *

After seeing this, do not stop here. Join me going through the round starting with Evelyn. Her work is beautiful and her tens are always so inspiring!

The older I get the more I appreciate the little moments in life. Just an afternoon enjoying the day. With the feet feeling the texture of the grass and the nice breeze of a wintery afternoon in Colorado. Love to feel the air caressing my hair and the energy that only being outside can bring to our hearts. This was a simple walk with my kids. When the sun was coming down and just moments before we would run to get our jackets. This was a very simple moment with my kids and my fur baby just around the corner. Sharing the love. Cris.

I always start my posts saying how fast time goes. It does. It is kinda of scary. This month is very special to me: October. Even though in my mind is spring (after so many years it feels still odd that September is not spring and that my birthday now is in winter – January. Funny thing of coming from the south hemisphere), I am beyond happy to be celebrating a real fall after so many years living in Texas. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Texas and it will always be home. But having the four seasons so beautifully defined is something that reminds me of my roots: Argentina. I grew up in Campana where summer is summer. Where spring is full of colors and flowers. Where fall turns everything yellow, orange and red; and where winter is bald and cold.

Love the textures and details that fall have brought to the neighborhood. Love to see my kids playing with the dried leaves. Love seeing them running and jumping outside. Love the constant sun that is always present in Colorado. Yes. It is true! it is pretty much all year long sunny =). Love the energy, the nature, and the love all around.

Sharing some of the images that represent our afternoon enjoying nature and the colors of October.

Please join me to see the amazing work of my photographer friends that are working on their own personal ten. I can not wait to live the stories behind their wonderful work =). Let’s start with Sarah!

The third month arrived even faster that the second. It scares me how fast time passes. The last weeks were very emotional to me. We found out that my son had a tumor right above one of his knees. We were blessed to know that it was benign so the surgery was done two weeks ago and his recovery has been great.  So great that now I have the stress to calm him down because his bone is so fragile after surgery that can fracture very easily. Six weeks of no physical activity for a nine year old boy sounds almost impossible. But thank God, all is good * huge smile *

During these three chaotic weeks, I realized that my focus was on Lucas and I left my daughter “on the side”. I have always spent a lot of quality time with my children since the moment I left the corporate world. I enjoy every little thing they do and I am those moms that sits and waits for them to finish each of their trainings, their sports, their piano classes, etc. I felt many times the fact of “wanting to be there” and I was not able to while working full time, so I give so much value to the fact that I can do it now. Anyways, I realized I needed to focus more time with Julia and for her I prepare my September’s ten.

We went to the mountains a few days ago to see the sun setting. Just Julia and I. We talked, laughed and enjoyed each others company with tons of “te amo’s” and smiles. We decided to come home pretty quick though because the sun went down and it was getting cold. September in Colorado is definitely different than in Texas and we are loving it very much.  She is growing up very fast. She is not my little girl anymore. She grew into this beautiful young woman. She is getting more independent by the minute. Way too fast I often think. I can see how her wings are getting ready to fly and my heart just dies a little.

The second month arrived very fast. The summer vacations are passing faster and faster every year… which makes me feel a little sad seeing the time getting older on my own skin and my kids getting closer and closer to fly away. It is very important for me to make sure we are living each day to its fullest and I am so thankful to have the chance to document every little moment.

As many of you know I left my family many years ago. I left my home because I bet on love. Met my husband while working on an assignment and we fell in love in the most beautiful way. It was the most romantic and magical thing but behind the scenes was so hard to make it happen and to be where we are now. There was no other reason than true love to leave my nest which, no matter how imperfect it could be, is the only place that explain who I am from the roots and made me feel so safe. It was very hard leaving the hugs and kisses of my parents. The support of those friends that grew up by my side. The warmth of the homemade food of my grandmother (who never had the chance to meet my kids because she passed when I was pregnant of my first one *sad*) and the unconditional support of the so many cousins, aunts and uncles who I love so much. I missed to see my nephews growing up. I missed to be there when my sister gave birth or my parents got sick. I missed so many birthdays and found myself going back home to bury family that left this world before those pendings hugs were given one more time. But no matter how many times I have cried, how many times I have missed and how many times I felt lost, I would do it all over again.

God makes you stronger and he is always there to make life better. He brought happiness and many blessings. He gave me the most beautiful kids and an amazing husband. And as a plus, he crossed my path with amazing people that became family to me.  Friends that became like sisters filling that emptiness in my heart for not having mine. Friends that became like aunts and uncles to my kids and their kids became those nephews and nieces I left behind. We had the chance to live life as we should live it. With love towards others and unconditional love coming back to us. With love ones close to have the chance to take care of.

Last week we had the blessing to receive this friends-family to our new home in Colorado. They came to spend some time with us. Rainy or sunny we enjoyed every day with tons of love and laughter. With music and dances. Playing games and discovering new places. Driving around. Hugging and kissing showing each other how much we care. And the day came that they left – gosh I hate good byes! sixteen years saying goodbye… it just does not get better. We hugged and made promises…  we cried.  The pain is always awful…

I am so happy to have captured some of the moments spent together. And here are my ten to share with you the love that we feel towards each other. Towards our friends. I am so happy to share that no matter how cloudy and rainy, we had a great day by the mountains enjoying a picnic under the shelter of the rocks.

To my friends:

Thank you for your visit! Thank you for your love. Thank you for making every little second count making them unforgettable. It is always hard seing you go but it is always comforting knowing that you will return. We love you with every little corner of our hearts =)

To all:

Enjoy my ten and after this do not forget to click on Amanda’s link to see her amazing work and have the chance to see the stories being told in her ten.

Thank you for stopping by. Besos, Cris.

I am so excited to be joining this talented group of ladies in this photography project that takes place in a monthly basis. On the 10th of every month, we will document our lives with 10 images recently taken. We will link each other’s blogs to share a little bit of our lives with all of you *big smile*.   On my first month I will share our days in Mexico. It will be two years since the last time I went to Argentina and I am so lucky to have my family meeting us on a vacation. It was very needed. As a family we went through very difficult things in the last few months so it was amazing to be blessed with a trip together.  Summer is defined by my heart with a few words: sun, water and laughter. And that is what I wanted to portrait in this set of images.  I hope you enjoy them and do not forget to click on Kelley’s link to see her amazing work. Can not wait to see how she will be telling the stories of her sweet life. Thank you for stopping by, Cris.
