I just love working with my friends. I feel like I say that all the time but I have been so blessed to work with so many friends and family over the years.
Diana and I have been friends for 8 or 9 years now. We went to college together, go to church together, worked together, lived together, vacationed together. . . We have shared a lot of great memories together and I am so honored that she asked me to photograph her wedding. There were so many great photos it was hard to choose just a couple to post. Can’t wait to post more later. Tim and Di – you are awesome and I wish you nothing but the best and lots of happiness! Love you guys!
I am so thankful for friends and family and photography client referrals and sweet families and newborns! Edith Pearl is my friend Katie’s beautiful baby girl. Katie as I post these photos I am praying for this sweet baby girl and all the lives that will come in contact with her and all the things she will accomplish in her life. Praying for her generation and the future. Thanks for inviting me into your home.
Week 24 was very busy and full of photo shoots, editing, slowly recovering from the cold/ flu thing from last week and teaching my first birthing class. YES! I said birthing class.
For those of you that don’t know I have been working since March to become a certified Childbirth Educator through ICEA.org. I started my first 4 week Childbirth series on Monday and it was great. I had a great time and hopefully my students did as well. We will see when the class reviews come in.
I am teaching Alpha Childbirth curriculum which is “everything that you would get at a hospital childbirth education class and MUCH more. You will learn how to stay low risk and what to expect in labor, but you will also learn how to make informed decisions, the truth about the “slippery slope” of interventions, why the United States’ c-section rate is one of the highest in the world and how best to avoid one, how to relax, how to stay in control (mentally and physically), how to rely on God’s word to stay focused, how to care for your infant and how to succeed at breastfeeding.”
It has been a goal of mine since Ada was born to attend more births as a birthing assistant/doula, photograph and video more births, and teach birthing classes. So all you ladies expecting a sweet babe and are interested in taking a childbirth class let me know, or if you just want to talk about birth I love to do that too. Here is to reaching goals!
Back to the weekly photo. Brittany Wood took these for me this week. Thanks pal!
We spent last week visting Chad’s parents in Houston, TX. Chad and I stayed one night at a very nice bed and breakfast downtown: La Maison In Midtown which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Houston. The prices were very reasonable and it was so much nicer than staying at a hotel. We wandered around Midtown and the Art District and found this awesome wall. Even though I was sick most of the week we still had a great time with family and we got to swim at least once a day everyday in his parents awesome pool!
Check out this cute little guy that looks just like his daddy! Reagan loved being outside and is so loved by all those who surround him, even his doggy Bauer. Chad and Stephanie, I am praying for this little babe and all the lives he will touch and all the adventures his future has in store for him. May he always be blessed with love and support and an awesome family.
I have announced everywhere on social media now that Chad and I are expecting our second girl at the end of December so it’s about time that I announced on here about the news. We are really excited and we are so glad Ada will have a little sister.
We have gotten requests to do another Belly Bump Series and so we decided to take photos every week again but we are changing it up a little. We started taking photos at Week 18 and I am now 22 weeks along. It seemed a little exhausting to do this again this go around but it’s a fun project for Chad and I to work on together and I know I will love looking back at these photos.
Presenting Baby Girl #2 Belly Bump Series.
Congrats Matt and Charly! Your ceremony was beautiful, your friends and family were so nice and loving, and you two were so relaxed and easy to work with. I had so much fun at your wedding. Thanks for letting me be apart of your special day. I have too many favorites to post. Hope you love these photos as much as I do.
