Two Weeks with Three, Four and Under | New Mom Series

Was that title confusing!? Well, so is life right now! And routine, and problem solving, and not having enough hands to handle all situations occurring in this household all at once! Or occurring in public places like grocery stores, ohhhh what have we gotten ourselves into!? I have to say first of all I am…

Third Baby Final Thoughts, Worries + Hopes | New Mom Series

This isn’t my first rodeo, we all know that by now if you’ve seen my blog, Instagram, “about me” on my website. My life revolves around these girls and always has…and when we just had Cammy, it was like the entire world revolved around her and her needs exclusively for us. We were SO worried…

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”…

3 Things As Brand New Parents | Seaside Sessions VIDEO BLOG

I love sharing ANYthing with new parents that I think doesn’t get talked about or shared enough! As we were driving home from a wedding in Richmond this weekend, Mikey and I reflected on some things we were glad to know now but definitely didn’t for our FIRST born, Cammy, in 2011! We are sharing…

Putting The HUMAN Back In Small Business | Small Businesses

This is something I’ve subconsciously thought about blogging for a while but I never knew how. It’s a subject that isn’t easy to approach and I knew I would always go at it with caution, but when my bride emailed me back last night– she opened it up for me BEAUTIFULLY. And for that?! Mike…

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…

Boss Ladies + Babies! | The Newsletter

Unexpected Joy in Journaling | Salt & Sunshine Series

I was texting a nice mama friend of mine the other night. I STILL haven’t met her in person, but something has always compelled me to reach out to her. Something about her to me is very genuine. I can tell we are very different in a lot of ways but in matters of the…

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…
