Baby is a’comin! {Denver and Golden, Colorado Candid Family and Children’s Photographer}

Whoa! Baby is a’comin. I can hardly believe it is September 16th… that means, I am 4 days away from our due date (FOUR DAYS!!) and any moment away from welcoming our second child into the world. Holy. Moly. —  and I mean HOLY! MOLY!

Most days, I am overwhelmed by the whole idea… that this little person is going to carve a new and permanent place in my heart. But, I cannot wait. Such an amazing miracle… and that I have been entrusted to be this person’s mom?!?! Well, sign me up! I am thrilled to take the job!

But, I gotta be honest… here is the truth… when I had my first baby, Mica… who is now 4! I remember I hurried to get back behind the camera. I think it was three weeks and I was back doing sessions again. It was part out of fear… worried how my business would do if I wasn’t fully active and behind the camera… and part… well, I just love photography and my job. But, with that, looking back – I wished I would have slowed down. I know my clients would have understood. I just know it (and I now I really do know it!) It all passed too quickly. I wished I would have taken naps with Mica in the middle of the day, instead of editing. I wish I would have spent a bit more time snuggling and just staring at her those first months, instead of worrying about sales tax.

And don’t get me wrong, I love my job… but I hope this makes sense. If you are a parent, I think I can see you nodding. (smile!)

With that…I vowed that if I had another child – it would be different.

So, now as I am staring down the days and on the verge of living on borrowed time before this little person enters my world. I can’t help but run around like crazy tackling my business to-do list and mentally preparing for a newborn. Cuz, truth is… I have every intention of dropping off the map this time and not worrying… and I KNOW my clients understand. (blessings!!) In fact, I will be on maternity leave through the end of the year and I like being intentional this time… and slowing down. I know I won’t win any metals for doing this, but I am proud of myself… as it is a bit out of my character, but I know I will never regret it…

I will be coming back full-time in the new year and will begin booking those sessions in November… and I will also be checking e-mail about once a week during maternity leave, so my response time may be delayed but I will respond, so please still reach out!!  But I won’t be behind the camera or the computer every day. I just need to say this all, because… well, if this your first time here, I don’t want you to think I am unresponsive… but that this is a special time in my life! And I have learned about treasuring the “good stuff” in life, through capturing all of you… and truth is, I will be so excited to get back to work. I love that part.

So lastly, as I sit here… a bit of a ticking time bomb (HA!)… and knowing this baby may come at any moment- I am looking at my to-do list and seeing I wanted to blog 7 more sessions before the big BIRTHday… and realizing that this may not happen. So, as I was sitting here I thought… I’m gonna highlight a couple favorites from each session… man, easier said than done. I had a great last month of summer… with some GREAT families!!

Thank you guys for all the love and prayers I have received with the soon to be arrival of our baby. I can’t wait to introduce you!

XO
