Your New Life | New Mom Series

In a sea of “get sleep while you cans” and “goodbye to your freedoms!” — I’m gonna be your sunshine today, new mamas šŸ™‚ Almost without a doubt, on every pregnancy announcement, pregnant status, etc on social media..there’s “that guy” — the one who has to write something other than congrats, they have to write…

Adjusting To Our New Dynamic | Life By The Sea

I am SO out of my element right now but I’mĀ getting there. Wait– I can’t have a free open week to schedule my business the way I need to, and just get a babysitter to watch the girls at the house if I need to go out and shoot or work? Nope. This whole “preschool”…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 17 + 18 Months!

This is the one that breaks my heart..the post where we start only shooting every six months after this. I can’t believe we’ve hit the 18 month mark already! Ellie, you doll, you sweet perfect angel we are less than deserving of but SO grateful for, you are everything we could ever have hoped and…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 15 + 16 Months!

Poor Ellie. Wait– do I start every post like that?! Haha it’s starting to sound repetitive and bad!! Well, the second children and their lack of extreme dedicated attention like the first had…it’s kind of true! Well, in person, it’s not true. Ellie probably gets a little more attention than Cam but Cam is more…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 13 + 14 Months!

Poor Bells. Our little kind, gentle and hilarious Elliebells. That second baby really gets some mistreatment when it comes to not getting her spotlight the way her sister did! It’s SO true, I have less time to document “formally” when it comes to pictures of her! I take TONS of her on my phone, definitely…

It Costs NOTHING | Salt & Sunshine Series

I am the girl that used to walk into places like Target where they strategically keep the women’s/juniors clothes and accessories by the front door and it pulled me in. I started justifying and self-discussing why IĀ need that new coverup. Or leggings. Or scarf. I just work so hard, I need it! I used to…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie ONE YEAR!

We just had her. We just came home from the hospital with our second bundle of joy. I swear, this has to be true, but apparently…that was an actual YEAR ago. The physical part of Ellie’s pregnancy was incredibly rough for me, but the emotional part, it was life changing. Something about this soul was…

Life Changing Elle Marie is ONE | Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Elle, I could write until the sun goes down and still not even really have gotten started. BABY GIRL– WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF? Who is THIS perfect??? Cammy..you’ll read this one day. We love you honey we do, but you are one ball of sass that gave us a run for our money. We…

Year One with the Seastars | New Mom Series

I remember this time last year blogging about feeling SO scared that I wouldn’t be able to love another baby the way I loved Cammy, that I wouldn’t be able to divvy up the attention properly and that my one and only and FIRST baby would feel………less loved. I was scared because I knew it…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 11 Months

We just slacked (wait, it’s my blog…so *I* slacked so bad) getting these posts up for little Ellie’s red heels and sweater series!! AHH! Mom of two guilt big time! But, I will say, I do take the pictures around the right time…so at least there’s that, right?! Haha! Oh Ellie– WE LOVE YOU —…

Thinking For One + Mom Hour | New Mom Series

They all come to us. Everyone in the house and even those beyond..everyone asks mama. Where things are, what’s for breakfast/lunch/dinner and three to four snack periods in between. What clothes they should wear, where the clothes even are to begin with. The schedule is determined around what she knows and how she has the…
