A Girl Named Blake

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!!
