I am so excited to share with you all that my husband and I are expecting our first little bundle of joy at the end of March/early April! We are absolutely thrilled! I’ve been pretty off the grid lately as I’ve been navigating this whole pregnancy business that has taken its toll on my changing body, as it does with all pregnant women! The all-day nausea, morning sickness, constant hunger combined with no appetite, aches and other awesome bodily functions I won’t mention (you’re welcome) have sent me into survival mode to keep up with my job and life events in general. While it’s been uncomfortable and frustrating a lot of the time, I can’t explain the utter joy I feel despite all the discomfort. I’ve never prayed more in my life or meditated more than I have these past 14 weeks. This phase in my life right now allows me a lot of alone time, and while I thrive on social interaction, I’ve been so blessed by this time to really process where we are in our lives at this very moment. It’s been a unique and beautiful blessing and I’ll always cherish this precious time for many reasons, which is a big reason why we’ve waited to share our news until now! Now we can’t wait to find out if we’re having a boy or girl… Either way, we praise God for this amazing gift! (UPDATE: IT’S A BOY!)
My best friend, Kacie, called me yesterday to say that she was going to be in town and she was at our disposal to take photos for our announcement if we wanted. We haven’t been putting it off, but getting me to feel better has been our top priority rather than an announcement. In all honesty, she didn’t really give us a choice because she’s been just as excited for us to share the news as we’ve been! Luckily, Kacie came to the rescue as she always does and snapped the photos below for us last night in our backyard and we are so grateful! We are also so overwhelmingly grateful for the outpouring of love everyone has shown us just since last night! Our hearts are so full from the love you all have shown and we can’t wait to share this journey with you all! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR CLIENTS
I absolutely adore every one of my clients and their constant support, so first of all, thank you for always being so great and supportive! I’ve made the tough decision to not take any weddings or portrait sessions for 2014 besides the couple I have already committed to. I may announce the occasional opportunity to book a session at various points in 2014, but I will let everyone know when I’m back to a regular schedule. While this is a tough decision, my family comes first and I want to take as much time as possible to spend with this new little one while I can, so thanks for understanding!
Here are some of the photos Kacie took last night. Thanks lady! We sure do love you and your family!
