"Today I want to honor all the amazing mommas out there. We have all had to rise up to the challenges of this current season with strength, grace and courage. It hasn’t always been easy, but we have done it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are words from my latest blog post written today. The link is in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mommas out there, especially to the ones I've had the honor of photographing! If you go to my blog post and have been one of my clients in the last year and a half, you may find a photo of yourself there.
Mommas, let's talk about swaddle blankets for your newborn session. As you are feeling all those sweet kicks of the baby you are expecting, now is the time to be ordering or checking your stock of newborn swaddles for your baby's sweet arrival. A classic neutral swaddle or a fun print that goes with the outfit you plan to wear for newborn photos makes all the difference in how your final images look. And for little baby girls, a headband can really help to set apart her femininity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you ever have a question on your swaddles or where to order some really good ones, just shoot me a DM. I would be happy to help!
Today is rainy around here and it makes our tiny apartment seem that much smaller since we can't go outside to play in our beautiful backyard. The weather makes me want to bake, read and sleep, but really that's not completely realistic as a momma. Right? It's much more realistic to just play games with the kids. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What your favorite books to read right now? Also what is your favorite thing to bake on a rainy day?
Two posts in one day! I'm surprising even myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had to let you know... I blogged again today! This sweet newborn session is on the blog. Head to the link in my profile to see more and hear about what greeted me upon my arrival for this session.
I found out today is the pretty lady's birthday and I couldn't help but give her a big shout out! @aprilandmikeraymond ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ April, I have loved the friendship we have formed since you came in my life when Greyson was born. You have overcome so much in your life and I'm so proud of where you are today! You are an absolutely incredible photographer! I've seen you just soar in this industry in a few short years. You have an eye for beauty and natural artistic talent. You inspire me to keep reaching for the stars in my business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wish you the best day ever and many beautiful years ahead! Keep trusting God in the little and big things in life. Love you, friend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These images are a throw back to when April modeled for me a few years ago.

I am loving all the green that is popping up everywhere right now. It reminds me as the seasons stay the same of God's faithfulness to all of us, even in this difficult season we find ourselves in. What has been a reminder of God's faithfulness to you in this season? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I do miss photographing all the great families like this one! I can't wait to get back behind the camera to serve all of you in the future!
I did a little home tour on my stories today. So if you want to see what kind of space I live in, head to my stories. I also saved it to my Highlights so you can catch it later too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have to say it feels so vulnerable to show you all the spaces in my home. Not sure why, but it did. I felt like everything had to be perfect, but I was reminded of how much all of us crave real life too. That made me not try to have every surface decorated to perfection for this tour. But the house was all picked up and clean for these stores, just how I like it. It didn't stay that way for long though.
