Personal Update: My kiddos

  img_8788I have not even posted a blog about my kiddos. Mercy, things here have obviously taken a back seat.

Here are my little nuggets. He is our surprise baby. I like to call him my "simmer" baby... as I'm convinced it was our essential oil blend Simmer (hormonal blend) that even made him possible.

img_8818So now I've known it.

What infertility is like, before having Sadie and being diagnosed with PCOS.

What the NICU is like, having Sadie at 25 weeks and spending 3 months in the hospital.

Thankfully I had an incredible doctor that monitored me very closely. It was a great pregnancy other than the normal, nausea... aches and pains... severe leg cramps... sleepless nights... swelling...

It was beautiful being able to bring him home right away, and to experience all the things I didn't recognize I missed with Sadie Mae.

She is the best most caring big sister ever, such a huge help. I was once worried about such the age difference, but now I'm relieved. How you people do it with lots of little littles at the same time is beyond me.

Here's an image of them this summer on the gulf coast at Panama City... and a few of my maternity taken by my sister-in-law, Julie Smith.img_9234 fg9a4881fg9a4891 fg9a5226 fg9a5228

Fall Portrait Outfits

So you've booked your fall family portraits with me and now you're stressing over what to wear? Take a peek at my fall outfit Pinterest board, click here!

Here's one of my favorites, and it would look great for Christmas cards too! I'd just recommend mom wear leggings so she's comfortable sitting, etc.

Be sure you check out my board for some neutral outfit groupings that are classic and would look great for a portrait hanging in any room of any house!

If you haven't booked your fall portrait session yet, do so SOON!

Maternity Session at Horizon Records, Greenville SC

My my. These two. No words. Shall we... just let the picture do the talkin'... You guessed it.

Music fanatics.

Literature lovers.

AND, I swanny, just one.big.ball.of.joy.

So happy for Jenn, who by the way is the guru that helped to make the online magic happen with our Rescued by Love charity event. She's a doll!

If there were ever two most deserving of a cuddly, sweet, up all night, newborn. It's them. I'm not sure who will have more fun...them or the baby?
