We are going to back track. I shot my last wedding when I was 37 weeks pregnant. Yep. You read that correctly. I DO NOT recommend it.  I could have sworn that being on my feet would put me in labor but it didn’t. Week 38, our household got hit with a cold. Honestly, I […]

So I’ve sat in front of the computer too many times wanting to publish Maximiliano’s birth story but it hurts me so bad that his birth didn’t go as planned. With Eli, I never had a birth plan. All I wanted to do when he was born, do skin to skin, and soak up every […]

I nursed Max before our mini photo session so he would be happy during the shoot… well it backfired. As soon as I set him down, he started dozing and passed out. Last time I checked in, he was using Halo SleepSack Self-Soothing Swaddle. He was in the process of learning how to roll over. Since […]

HOLY. MOLY. I am 38 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Everyone around me didn’t think I would make it this far because Eli was born 38 weeks and 4 days. Heck.. Everyone swore I would give birth right after our Disneyland trip but NOPE. I haven’t had any contractions yet. Just the usual braxton hicks. […]
