What To Expect When I’m Expecting

I can’t believe it’s almost time to welcome our newest addition to our family! Our baby boy has already spent a little over 33 weeks growing inside me, and the time has FLOWN BY. It feels like just yesterday that I was packing my gear into my car, headed to photograph the first of two weddings that weekend in August, still in shock that the test I took that morning told me I was pregnant.

P.S. For the photographers out there reading – I do not recommend planning to photograph two weddings in one weekend while pregnant unless you plan on being laid out on the couch unable to move for a full week! So. Exhausting.


From my last wedding of last season until now, I’ve taken a step back from blogging and social media to focus on spending time with my little girl and husband, and getting my house ready for another newborn. I also took a step back in booking and only took on a handful of weddings this year! I’ve got a good amount of weddings – not too many, not too little – to take the best care of this year’s couples and spend as much time as I can with my kiddos. Kid(s)!!. So cool! 🙂 BUT, I still have a couple weekends that I have open for this season that I am hoping to fill! They will fill up quick, so contact me asap so we can set up a time to meet and chat about all the awesome details!

I also wanted to let you know that just because I’m taking a step back this wedding season DOES NOT mean that I’m not taking on engagement, boudoir, maternity, senior and family sessions for 2017! March, April, and May are blocked out, this mamma’s gotta heal from giving birth to a baby! However, if all goes as planned, as of the start of June I will be getting back into the swing of things and will start opening up spots for all of you lovelies out there who are hoping to book a session with me! Until then, I will still be blogging once a week or so (I hope!), answering emails as I am able, and doing a little bit of social media posting as I find the time and energy.

It’s going to be a fantastic year, and even with taking on less in my business it’s probably going to feel super busy with adding a new family member! I’m SO excited to meet him, and I am insanely thrilled for the gorgeous weddings I get the pleasure to photograph this year!! Every single one of them is centered around the most pleasant couples!

Stay tuned! 😉

    Good luck with the newest member of your family. It was tough taking a step back when I had my boys, but it was so important and worth it to focus on family for a while.
