Finn moves quite a bit too, but in a different way. I hear more pushing out (almost like a bruise) on the top of my skin. I love being pregnant, and I feel so lucky that my pregnancy is super easy. I am still working out every day, and really enjoying it! A guy at the gym told me that my baby will come out working out. Well, obviously not doing squats down to the ground... :)
Teresa Cotey, I laughed and laughed about your comments about living in a country where you were forced to squat to use the bathroom.....this is so true...most people that come from overseas have no problem with this kind of squat. It was a NECESSITY, not a choice.
Not me. :)
My belly looks lumpy at the top. He is just moving all around. I often feel like he is on one side or the other. A lot of people mention it when they see my belly. He is on one side or the other. So goofy. I forgot to remind Brandon that the little focus dot needed to be on my eyes...not on the chalkboard. So enjoy the chalkboard focused photos :)
Just recently, I think I told you that my friend Priscilla delivered a healthy baby after enduring several losses. I was so enthused to meet him that we did a quick photo shoot the day I saw him at home in his new nursery. Sweet Samuel.
One of the best purchases I have made recently at my local thrift store was the vintage scale that I got for $8. How awesome is that? So,so sweet.
Oh. My. Goodness. I saw him today and he is now three weeks old. He was two weeks old here. SO HANDSOME!!!! I love him!! He was just a sweet, 5 lb. premie. Excuse me for missing the ounces here...but he was just a little, handsome snugly man.
Thank you for your opinions on the nursery fabric. Keep it coming. I need help. I have been trying to go see a dresser my friend has for about two weeks now. Just ridiculous how crazy my life seems. How? I am not working?! It makes me wonder if I will be LESS productive while staying at home. When I have to work I manage my time very efficiently, because I have to. When I am not working, sometimes my ADD self gets to roam.
I did decide on a name for my photography. It is based on what I often say. I tell people all the time, "Hello, friend". I feel like it is a cheery way to greet someone. I call my students friends. I call adults friends. Unless they dont' seem kind, then they do not get this title. I suppose, as I name my photography, my hope is that anyone I take photos of will be doing this so that I can invest in their lives. So I can capture a moment in their lives, a season. Every change in our lives is marked at a moment in time, but it will not stay this way for long. As I photograph life, I really love capturing moments. And my hope is that by the end of a photo shoot, that they can call me a friend. If not, I dont want to take photos of you...it is important to me that I can connect with every person and/or family that I take photos of. It makes it much easier to show personality in photos.
You will see some tweaking on this logo.
But this is the draft one that I am putting on my print releases now.
I am not taking any new shoots at the moment, but if you are interested in future shoots, I can take your name so that when my schedule opens up, I can let you know! :)
