Woke up to a dusting of snow, just enough to make things look beautiful! So I took a short drive over to my cousins to capture some snowy photos
Mommas, lets be real for a minute! __ I gained 50 lbs with Kaiden, yup I said it.....FIFTY. __ And I've only lost about 10 lbs.....TEN. And it's been almost 5 months. __ I've had quite a few pity parties about the baby weight I haven't lost. I've justified the pity by telling myself but I created a human being & brought him into this world so I'm going to love myself and man do I wish I believed those words all the time, because how insanely beautiful is it that our bodies can even do that?! But truthfully, self criticism is REAL. __ And not every new mom will feel this way, and not every person will understand this post. But I’ve been around enough women and talk to enough friends about this to know that this topic is relevant and needs to be transparent more often than not. __ And scrolling instagram does not help. LET ME REPEAT, does not help! Because envy creeps in and thats when self doubt takes a hold of you. __ That being said, Mommas who've lost it all, keep kicking butt and inspiring others! __ And mommas who haven't. Don't beat yourself up so much, because the TRUTH is, we did grow a baby inside of us and everyone's body is different, and everyone is going to lose the weight at different times in different ways and that needs to be okay! __ And for Goodness sake, let's build each other up, ALL THE TIME. In every aspect of life, because we are all rockstars that deserve a high five every now and then 🙌🏻 __ And please don’t get me wrong, I truly think our bodies are incredible that we can even create LIFE. But human tendency to feel envious, sad, etc about certain things is a real thing so lets not ignore that either. __ And truthfully, after talking to friends, this topic is a lot more relevant than you would think. And this doesn’t just speak to moms! I think we all need to remember that instagram is a split second of an entire day and peoples real lives could never actually be captured perfectly, laid out in pretty squares. __ Ps. I love this little boy more than he will ever know! ❤️
Dawn, you are gorgeoussss!
Family photos are all about having fun! Especially for the kiddos, cause we all know they won't stand there and smile for a solid 30 minutes 😅 so my goal is to capture as much authenticity as possible by movement!
Happy Sunday, friends! We weren't able to get ourselves up & ready for Church this morning so we're having a slow start to our day! Who else is with us!? 🙋🏻♀️😴☕️
I took Sandy’s maternity photos when she was pregnant with her first and it was one of my very first sessions! And here we are again, except now there are 5 of them! Crazy how much has changed ❤️
