maternity session

Milk Bath Session | 38 weeks

We are counting down the days y'all!!! Every day I wake up and I am like, "Will this be the day???" I have got to stop! lol I haven't been feeling well at all and that has made this last leg of pregnancy so hard. I have been in pain for the past two and a half weeks with my back and hips feeling a dull muscle ache. When Rocco moves around it intensifies these pains. . .he moves A LOT! Two nights ago I didn't sleep well because he decided to have a dance party! It was so painful. That next morning I scheduled an appointment with my chiropractor and let me tell you! She worked some serious magic!! I feel SO incredible and have decided to walk around like a granny trying to keep this adjustment in place. lol This Thursday will be my 39 week check up and we will also have another ultrasound done to determine just how much this baby boy is weighing in at. At my last ultrasound, my tech told me he was on track to weigh around ten pounds at birth. Eek! He has consistently measured two weeks ahead at every check up. Praying things will progress in God's time, I will gain some patience and this baby boy will be healthy!

Also, I am bored! I keep getting caught up with house chores and then the boredom starts to set in. Plus, with no weddings or engagement sessions currently on my schedule, work has basically come to a halt. Which was the plan so I can focus on my family and try to relax while we wait on our baby boy to arrive. However, my brain hasn't caught on to this idea yet! My brain is re-branding my photography business, checking out ideas for new website designs and layouts and I am taking an online photography class that is geared towards business. I just can't stop!!! lol I love my photography business and the amazing clients I get to meet. I love that it allows me to be creative and I have SO much fun with my clients during our sessions. Seeing my clients in front of my camera during an engagement session, giggling and loving on each other AND already getting excited about their wedding day photography. . .it keeps me going and keeps me passionate!

So, for now I am trying really hard to stay positive and think happy thoughts. I saw these gorgeous pink peonies at the grocery store and thought they would help brighten my day. Which they do every time I see them! :) They are my faves. I love how fragrant and beautiful they are. They made the perfect prop for my milk bath maternity session too! I had Trey behind my camera rocking out his skills. Thank you for taking these for me babe.

Sarah + Robbie | Social Circle, Ga Maternity Session

This session was cutting it super close! Sarah and Robbie will be meeting their sweet baby girl today! <3. We originally scheduled Sarah and Robbie’s maternity session last Thursday - the day the storms rolled in. :( As soon as we all arrived at the location for our session the rain started up. Thankfully her baby girl stayed in place over the weekend and we were able to meet back up on Tuesday and it turned out to be so beautiful! Sarah totally rocked my new props! I found the fabulous gown and flower crown on Etsy and had them rushed to me for her session.

Sarah + Robbie, I’m praying that your birth is beyond perfect. I can’t wait to meet your baby girl!

Close to the beginning. . .

Yesterday my sweet neighbor, Cailey, came over for me to photograph her and her belly for the last time. :) Seeing her not feeling her normal self and somewhat down, it reminded me of my final days carrying my girls. With our first daughter, I was scared and excited because I knew our lives were about to change. It wasn't going to be just Trey and I anymore. And of course this is what we wanted, a family. But still, I don't like HATE change. I was unsure of so many things. . . who was going to watch her when I needed to be away, how was I going to run our business, is she going to be a good sleeper, a good nurser, would my delivery go as I imagined. . .Did I even have an image of what my birth was going to look like?????? Yes, I was quite overwhelmed when at my 40 week check up the mid-wife blasts into the room telling me she just called the hospital and scheduled my induction to begin THAT night. WHAT???? Yes! Without warning or addressing me otherwise - How rude of her. :( I had heard nothing but negative things about indications. That they typically result in a C-section. I was terrified and I cried all day. As my protest, I was 30 minutes late to the hospital to begin this indication process. Huh, take that! lol Not that they really cared and it most certainly didn't make a difference to my nurses. Birthing babies is so unpredictable. It can make you a crazy person. As if the hormones weren't enough, you then have opinions being thrown at you left and right from your doctors, midwives, your girlfriends and the lady in the check out line that has had five kids and breeds horses - she knows it all y’all! lol


I do know it’s the most beautiful experience of my life so far. Creating my babies (that was fun), growing my babies (incredible and exhausting), birthing them (a true miracle that my body was able to do that) and the very best part holding my fresh newborn babies (I grew this bundle of perfection). GAH! Just too amazing. God is so great.

Cailey gets to meet her daughter, Brooklyn Coy, this Saturday! I'm so excited for her and her family. :) Please lift her up in your happy thoughts + prayers!!!
