Just over eight years ago, my oldest daughter was born. I became a mama, which is the only thing in my life that I was sure that I wanted. So many other things have changed in my life, but my desire to be a mama has always been a constant!!
So Blake was born. I got to spend 12 glorious weeks with her before I went back to work full-time. I found an amazing daycare, but I was not myself. I was miserable. I enjoyed my time with Blake so much, and, after going back to work, I felt like I wasn’t getting enough. I just kept thinking about how I really only got an hour of quality time in the evenings. I wanted to be there more for her. I missed milestones in her first year of life. I yearned to be with her more. I knew that I had to leave my full-time job to be the mom that I wanted to be.
A month before her first birthday, I jumped. I decided to RUN and pursue a career as a photographer. It has been a wild ride that I’ve been on for seven years, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Since then, our home has grown by three more daughters, and my heart is so full (and a touch overwhelmed).
About a month ago, I got a new camera! I have been so excited to play with it, and that means lots of mini photo shoots with my minis!! Blake was my first muse. I hope you love the lifestyle type photos as much as I do!!
