I took a little break from photography so that I could prepare and enjoy vacation time with my husband. We took a cruise to St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Haiti to celebrate his 30th birthday and our 10 year wedding anniversary. I’m actually taking my first session this afternoon and I’m so excited to get back at it! I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos that I captured while we were vacationing (because photographers truly never stop).
To the little boy who made me a mom…I still remember 3 years ago standing in North Carolina with dandelions surrounding me. I was 8 weeks pregnant with you, my third pregnancy, and as much as I wanted to pick every single one of those dandelions to make a million wishes for you; I only picked one. I held that one dandelion in my hand and I closed my eyes..in that moment, it wasn’t the wish that meant so much to me; it was hope. From that moment on I was determined to hold onto that hope, to love you and my pregnancy as if I had never lost the others. No other flower will ever mean as much because for me, it is a symbol of hope. I hope you know that I will never take you for granted…I know there are women out there who would love to have our worst days; I know that because I was one of them. You have made me a mother but you have truly given me the gift of life.
This style is definitely out of my comfort zone but I can still appreciate the beauty in it. It was fun watching my sister do her thing. We’ve always been like night and day and I think this reflects that.
