The Birthday Experience | Port Aransas For The Family | 36 weeks pregnant

I felt like a totally sucky mom. For both of Tennyson's birthdays I have had to work.  Sure, a 1 and 2 year old won't know you're working on their birthday -they don't even know what birthdays are- but as a mother, you do.  And it feels negligent and rude and kinda gross missing your … Continue reading The Birthday Experience | Port Aransas For The Family | 36 weeks pregnant

Plant-based Pregnancy: 29 weeks pregnant, 3rd trimester

I'm not gonna lie.  One of the perks of being a photographer is that you can do a lot with whatcha got. Tripod.  Good camera+lenses. Wireless trigger.  A studio. The works.

Baby Blessing | Connecting with your baby during pregnancy

I have always loved -I mean LOVED- finding out the sex of my babies during the mid-pregnancy ultrasound.  As a rule, I'd go to the appointment and then immediately head to the store for my baby's first outfit.  The name would usually be determined by then -having 1 girl and 1 boy name pretty well … Continue reading Baby Blessing | Connecting with your baby during pregnancy
