Got some last minute family pics yesterday, thanks to a tripod and remote shutter 🙈 I realized @minted ‘s holiday card sale ends TODAY so I didn’t even bother to do my hair. There was only 15min of daylight left - It was a now or never type situation. Gotta do what ya gotta do, and the important thing is THE BABY IS HAPPY (i think... i think it’s happy and not mid scream... I’m going to go with happy)!!! 😂
It’s been a year and a few days since our major remodel started and look where we are now! It’s (luckily) easy to forget how stressed we were, starting this project when I was a little over 7 months pregnant. But it was all worth it. At least weekly Cody and I say out loud to each other how we can’t believe how well it turned out, and daily I see all of the light flooding in and am so happy that we decided to take the project on. (Swipe to see beginning stages of construction).
Would you have guessed that the real feel at this moment was practically 0 degrees??? Finishing up this gorgeous fall wedding this week and I’m having a lot of heart eye moments re-living every detail. 💕
This little man is almost exactly one month older than Cole, so watching him stomp around Lincoln Park was making me scarily aware of how our little babies go from 0-60 way quicker than we are prepared for. 😭
I’ve been spending a lot of time with sweet families like this and I couldn’t be happier. While there will never be anything quite like the experience of shooting weddings, spending time capturing families feels SO important to me... I’m sure it has nothing to do with the 10 month old who has currently given himself the role of “mama’s shadow”, who seems to be getting bigger with every sunrise. I feel a sort of desperation to capture families right now in the moment as they are, because that moment in time will be gone before we know it. 🧡
We’ve got the tree lit and the Christmas tunes playing. Don’t judge. Last year I waited until after Thanksgiving and at the end of the season remember thinking I wished i would have just given in and started embracing Christmas early November. Not mad about it at all. 🤶🏻🎄🎅🏼
