Baby kicks woke me up this morning. Today is my first Mother's Day! My hubs and I have family plans this evening, but I have the entire half of the day to myself. I decided, I'm going to spend the day reflecting on the pregnancy journey with my feet up. They look rather fluffy these days.
Here goes my pregnancy journey....
September 19th, 2017
It was a Tuesday. I was returning to work from my trip to Tennessee to be there for the birth of my nephew followed by a newborn session in his nursery. My best friend Heidi knew I was late and she kept telling me to take a test. I picked up one at Rite Aid. I was already heading there for gummies and mascara. I never mentioned to Ken that I was taking a test, I thought I was late because of the busy weekend. And then I took the test... boom positive! And so, our adventure began...

This journey has been incredible. From feeling his first kicks to watching my hubby talk to my belly, I have loved the time I have spent creating new life. I love sharing the excitement with friends, family, and clients.
For years, I have taken photos of expecting mom's from bump, to baby, to first birthday's. Seeing children grow up through each session has been one of the main reasons I love being a family photographer. I love being a part of a families journeys and helping them document their children's growth. I know that when the kids have grown and started families of their own, they will look back at photos. Those photos will become family heirlooms, treasures to look back on, photos that will be here beyond my years.
Thank you to all the families that have let me into your life and let me capture special moments for you. It has truly been an honor. I look forward to many more sessions, capturing new life and laughter, and sharing my story and photos as my little one grows.
Thank you to all the mom's who have giving me the honor of photographing you and your families.
You have all been a true inspiration!
Happy Mother's Day!
