Guys. I’m trapped under my baby.

She woke up and so I carried her out to the living room and she fell asleep in my lap.

Can’t. Move.

Work work work…

I’m invoicing, emailing, going through old pics and pulling pics for my new website, working on the design… I’ve got like 6 weddings, a vow renewal, two engagement sessions, a birth and a week of mentoring a student all in the next two months. Plus I’m attempting to re-brand and launch my new wedding/engagement brand.

So much to do…

I’ve had a few questions about how I do self times pics and video….

Some of it is done with an app on the iPhone called “camera!” The rest is done on my gopro!

I would really encourage you to start trying to take timed photos throughout the day. Mine aren’t staged… It’s just my phone or gopro sitting there and we are doing what we do anyway… But now we have pics/video of it.

A big advocate to the fact that memories fade but pictures last a lifetime. It’s a big part of why I have chosen the career that I have. It’s also why I post hundreds of pics of just random daily life… Because I feel that those are moments and memories we will never get to re-do. I don’t want to forget them and I don’t want my husband to miss out on them.

Especially as mothers, we often end up in the background… Behind the camera… Taking the pictures. I don’t know about you, but looking back at pics of me as a kid, I love the ones that I am interacting with my mom. There are way too few. Don’t make that same mistake…. Even if it means using a timer :)

I won’t judge. And anyone who does is missing out on their own memories!

Do you know what it’s like to nurse a toddler? It’s amazing. And crazy. All wrapped into one. Sometimes she’s doing acrobatics while latched. And sometimes she is a cuddle bug. I love her nursing giggles and the way she touches my face. I love how she looks at me like I’m the only thing that matters in the world.
