“Motherhood is both beautiful and exhausting in all of its complexities. I have learned that being truly selfless is a requirement and yet I’m filled with inspiration every day. Being a first-time mama to my daughter can, at one moment, bring me to my knees in an unfulfilled desire to be perfect (or even adequate) for her; and in the next, elevate me higher than I ever imagined. I remember the day clearly when doctors told me I couldn’t have a baby – and then I made Maeve. This first Mother’s Day is truly a miracle. My daughter’s Irish namesake means “one who intoxicates” and looking at the stunning results of her photo session; it is clear that Christy has truly captured that.”

A few weeks ago, the editor of Click, a national publication by Clickin Moms aimed at the modern female photographer, contacted me about using one of my images in an upcoming issue.

Of course I was elated then, but I don’t think it really sunk in until I received a box full of magazines last week. I’m thrilled and beyond honored to have this beautiful image of darling Daniel – a Voice 2014 Collection Image – published in my favorite magazine!

Thanks Click!

Catching up on more 2014 sessions! Charming baby Tucker was just 7 days new when he and his family visited the studio for his newborn session. Tucker was so quiet and contemplative as he looked around, and he slept so peacefully. Big brother Bennett was equally adorable with his sweet nature and darling expressions. But my favorites of all … the images of Tucker with his mommy are so touching, I just love looking back over them and remembering how tender and loving she was with him.

Lots of images, lots of love …

On an overcast early fall day, we celebrated this beautiful couple waiting for a sweet baby girl tucked away in her mama’s belly.

Kennedy is now 4 months old and is oh-so-loved by her big brothers and sisters. Such a lucky girl! I’ll come back and share her newborn photos soon!

My little one, the baby.

I know, I know. You’re such a big girl now. Kindergarten, reading like a fiend, surprising us all the time with the things you know and say.

How do I tell you how much I love you? I don’t think words are enough to completely convey what I mean to say.
