Lingerie Partnerships, Discounts and Giveaways!

Never has good lingerie been more important in my life.  My breasts now 2 sizes smaller than pre-pregnancy and my style taking a bit of a hit most days to accommodate my new lifestyle.  I used to accessorize with layers of gold jewelry, which will now be ripped off in a lickety split by chubby delicious little Gemma fingers. I also don't have all that … .

My First Mother’s Day, 45 Years Old, and With The One That Was Always Meant To Be Ours.

The moment Gemma crossed into this world and Tom placed her on my chest, she stared me right in the eyes and I knew. It was always meant to be her, she was here, and everything was as it should be.

It Takes As Long As It Takes. Introducing Crosby Lee!

When I went a week plus past my due date last summer, I was beyond ready to hold my sweet girl.  I walked miles everyday (in August), bounced endlessly on my yoga ball, ate a whole pineapple for every meal, and some other foolery I'm not willing to admit here.  In the end they had to smoke her out and induce me, but we had the most beautiful birth that … .

Girl’s Gotta Have It! The 6 Month Shoot

As a photographer who works almost exclusively capturing women's journeys, I always recommend a professional photo shoot to mother's when their babe is between 6 and 9 months.  It's the period of time when your baby becomes more of a person, and reaches that adorable milestone of sitting up unassisted (at least for a minute or two!).  So when my Little … .
