So I’ve been going back and forth about writing this post for a couple of months. Part of me wants to shout it from the rooftops, and then there is another part of me that wants to keep it to myself. The rooftop shouter won out, as she so often does with me. That’s right, I’m making a person! A little boy to be exact who will be joining us sometime in July. While we are SUPER excited for him to come live with us, he was not what I would call “planned.” I mean, do wedding photographers plan to have babies in the middle of the summer? The answer to that is no, no they don’t. But planned or not we are excited for this new addition to our little family. I mean, hello! Look at this face! What’s not to love?
I’ve never thought of myself as someone who liked being pregnant, but I must say this one has been pretty darn easy. No sickness, no weird cravings (though I am HIGHLY susceptible to suggestion when it comes to food), not even feeling too crazy tired. All and all it’s been a pretty awesome experience and I’m really over the moon. I’m shooting weddings right up until the end, but luckily I’m getting lots of help from my wonderful husband and my really amazing photographer friends who are shooting along with me in my final weeks. I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to be so supported by my partner in life, my dear friends and my sweet clients. Thank you all for being so awesome during this time. I’m taking a short maternity leave after my July 1 wedding and will back in action for fall weddings. We have three spots still available for 2010 so feel free to send us an email if you’re still looking for a photographer.
