When the farmer calls. You shoot on the farm. Welcome baby P! That floral headpiece was real folks. My girl Karen is the shizzle, I haven't worked with her in forever - but was so happy to see some of her work make an appearance at this little nugget's shoot! Just a quick note, I am booked for the last week in October, fall family portraits, which I opened a few weeks ago. I still have a few appointments for the first week in November, first come first serve, standard sitting fee, click here and scroll to the bottom for the details.
Baby K arrived, sweet as sugar. Perfect model, beautiful skin. It's the sweetest thing to watch first time parents cradle so gingerly.
So enjoyed my time with this sweet family over the labor day weekend on the beautiful Island of Edisto! It's been a while since I've been that way, so it was a much needed visit for me. The road right before you take the bend in the road to go along the beach front.... that little shack that offers seafood, beside the Piggly Wiggly. Eat there. Fish tacos off the chain. Thank me later.
Side note: Nothing makes a photographer's heart happier than a Dad who likes to play!
I 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.
So 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.
Now, what a surprise miracle baby is like... you know, that baby you could 'never have on your own'...
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.
Winding down my Mother's/Father's Day promotion this month. I've had some super sweet kiddos and their mommies join me.
Ending it all with one of the last images I took from this series.
There is nothing more amazing than a Mother's love. That's for certain…
