Being that it’s Thanksgiving week, I think it’s important to take time to show gratitude for the things in my life, so I’m starting off with this right here- my clients. . Motherhood has been a transition for me. Not necessarily a hard one, but a transition nonetheless. I went from having my own life & time, a successful photography career, and the ability to stay up past 10, to having a tiny human dependent on me for her every need. And I LOVE it more than anything in the world, but over the last 9 1/2 months, I’ve lost some of *me*. Mamas, can I get an amen?! . Recently though, I have had more sessions than I’ve had since we moved to Colorado over a year ago, and having this little piece of me back again has been so needed. I miss Tatum every time I leave her (so a big huge freaking shoutout to you mamas that work full time because you’re true rockstars), but being someone besides a bottle making, puke cleaning, toy cleaner upper, is just gold. Pure freaking gold.
When she was a newborn, I thought that was my favorite age. When she started laughing and giggling, I thought that was my favorite age. When she started sitting up and really interacting with the world around her, I thought that was my favorite age. But right now in this stage, I’m sure it’s my favorite age. I’m think I’ll say that every day for the rest of her life though.
I may have almost died driving down the mountain last night, but I don’t regret it one bit. And no, I’m not being dramatic about almost dying 🙈😜
I had a session tonight in one of my favorite places, but it did me REAL DIRTY tonight. Let me tell you how not fun it is driving down a mountain on a curvy road while it is misting just enough to freeze on the road in some spots i.e. the curves that are already tight to go down when it’s dry 🤨☹️ . I have never said, “Jesus, please keep us safe,” more than I did tonight in that 5-10 minute span. And if you’re wondering, yes, of course I took a few pictures on the way down, because snow + fog + mountains = perfection 🤷🏻♀️ I trusted Jesus to keep Tatum and me safe while also being able to capture the beauty of Colorado 😅
You see that adorable onesie on the left? I have been waiting and waiting and stalking @gap for it to go on sale, and it finally did! Little man is going to be so dang adorable in it 😭 The reindeer is for Tatum, and obviously I couldn’t resist that Christmas goodness. And the shampoo and conditioner, well, anybody that has damaged, over-processed hair needs this stuff like yesterday.
