I know I know I know…get a GRIP Amanda she is just going to Pre-K! BUT….there are mamas out there who get it. Mamas who totally have all the feels when it comes to milestones for their kids.

When I started this business, I wanted a baby. We couldn’t get pregnant and couldn’t figure out why. Months and months of negative tests led us to an infertility clinic to make sure we weren’t going to spend years trying if there was something we could take care of now that we didn’t know about, and then there I am shooting my first wedding of business not even aware that I was pregnant at the time!

Then we grew together. I grew as a photographer and business owner, and Cammy grew bigger until I felt her FIRST kick at a wedding. I will never, ever forget that moment. I knew where I was standing at the reception and can picture it like yesterday…I felt my little girl kick while I was pursuing my dream and passion. I had NO CLUE that girl would become the biggest inspiration of my life and then her little sisters to follow!

I remember you baby girl, kicking and dancing while My Girl played at receptions. I remember my brides feeling you kick. I remember crying more while shooting wedding by wedding as I paid deeper attention to how a bride’sย parents looked at her getting ready and dancing with her groom.

You taught me to see LIFE and WEDDINGS in a different way. You inspire me still with your wild and free life loving personality full of sunshine, not too much gracefulness but so much enthusiasm. I LOVE YOU CAMRYN MAE. You are our big girl, and this is your new, big, grand adventure. The world is yours honey, go to school and make mama proud!

  1. There ARE mamas out there who get it!!! <3<3 We will be there either in January (if I can let go of our 3 year old that early!) or next fall and I SO GET all of your emotions, sister!!! It is so so hard, and a little unfair that all of our raising is proven successful when they have the ability and courage to leave us!!! But it is all just such an amazing gift!!! Your Cammy is unbelievably gorgeous!
