Ok, wow…. I have gotten increasingly bad at getting blog posts up in a timely fashion, but Stevie turned ONE on September 21st and we did ALL THE THINGS to celebrate her first year of life coming to a close!!! Of course, the first essential was a photoshoot with 70’s retro flair, to match the theme of her birthday party!Continue reading “Stevie’s 1st Birthday Photoshoot by The Deerwood Co!”

Stevie’s “Fresh 48” Shoot!
I am so excited to share our ‘Fresh 48’ photoshoot by The Deerwood Company! When Indie was born, I had a similar session scheduled and had to cancel for obvious reasons. This time, it brought me such great joy to have our photographer be able to visit the mother-baby unit to photograph our littlest love in all her good health. There’s not much else to say about this other than: look at these GORGEOUS PICS!!!!!!!Continue reading “Stevie’s “Fresh 48” Shoot!”
Stevie’s Birth Story
First thing’s first – I’m writing this, four days postpartum, from my couch with my baby. Home and healthy. Quite the 180 from Indie’s birth story, where I struggled to find my words from the NICU. Stevie’s entry, however, still packs a dramatic punch – and I am so eager to jot it all down on this blog. Read on for all the details (and some potentially graphic but really cool birth photography by my amazing husband!)Continue reading “Stevie’s Birth Story”
Hospital Bag Checklist!
Finally getting around to showing you guys what I packed in my hospital bag ahead of meeting Baby Sis! I want to preface this post by saying that, as someone who prioritizes photos and blogging, I probably pack way more than what’s actually necessary…. so take this all with a grain of salt. The reality is that all your baby really needs is YOU (and an outfit to go home in!). Focus on the essentials for yourself – what will make you comfortable – and the rest will fall into place. It’s amazing how much the hospital actually provides you with… but some people just prefer to have their own “stuff” – and I’m one of those people! I also packed a bag like this when I had Indie and I learned very quickly that NONE OF IT MATTERS. Her birth and NICU stay made all plans go out the window and 90% of my “bag” was literally useless with the exception of a change of clothes. Do not lose sight of this! It’s so important to remember why you’re there: To get baby Earthside safe and sound. The rest is nominal. Read on to check out my full packing list this time around!Continue reading “Hospital Bag Checklist!”
