Hello internet world, it has been a while! Blogging is definitely not my strong suit but I'm trying to improve, I swear. Anyways let's get right to the point, here are 10 weeks (technically 8 because I missed 2) worth of self-portraits that I've taken. Enjoy!
Even though the focus is completely off in this photo, I'm still in love with the moment I captured.
All of the lines.
Lunchtime for everyone except mama...wait, can coffee count as a lunch?
My goal here was to capture movement.
I never realized what gorgeous light my front door's window lets in. Pretty much since we moved here it had been blocked by a curtain, but on this particular day my middle daughter decided to pull the curtain down and expose this light. So of course I saw it as an opportunity to wash said curtain as well as take some self-portraits in the light.
The girls were not down with my idea to take photos together. I don't even know how many photos I took just to get these two.
They. Were. Not. Having. It.
Coffee and self-portraits, why not?
New dress, who dis? A dress for my client closet came in this day, so of course I had to test it out by doing some self-portraits in it. Plus, the patch of light coming in the window was awesome!
This week got away from me and no self-portraits were taken.
May the 4th be with you! I may have googled "Princess Leia hair" to get some ideas as to how I should do my hair for this set of self-portraits.
The top photo was actually a test shot but I love how it turned out. I love the girls' expressions that I captured. Bottom photo is my "planned" shot.
This week was a busy week for me and no self-portraits were taken.
Finally I had the chance to play with the glitter I bought back in January. You know what's so special about this glitter? It's BIODEGRADABLE and made from plant cellulose instead of plastic! It takes about 90 days to degrade. Now that's pretty sweet!

Dada and the two older girls were napping at the time, so it was the perfect opportunity for Freya and I to do some photos together using the cool light beams coming in through the bedroom window.

These self-portraits I did with Freya fill my heart with soooo much happiness! I am so in love with the love and joy I captured in these moments and I want to share the love with you. Soooo I have an awesome special! Starting now for a LIMITED TIME (until the end of April), I am offering Mommy and Me In-Home Cuddle Sessions! Yayyyy!
These sessions will be full of love--hugs, kisses, cuddling, etc. on your couch, maybe on the floor cuddled in a blanket, or wearing cozy jammies in bed. There are no rules except to appreciate and love on mama!
Mama’s, I wanna celebrate you and all the amazing things you do!
Sessions are 15 minutes long and take place in your home, they come with an online gallery, and 5 digital downloads (with print release) of your choice--$75. A $25 non-refundable reservation fee is due at the time of booking/signing of client agreement. (Prints and extra digital images can be purchased for an additional fee.) The remaining balance is due the day of the session.
Celebrate Mother’s Day early and let me capture the love that you and your kiddos have for each other!

My girlies and I had a kiss-fest to celebrate Valentine's Day.
I made sure to take some photos before I got covered in kisses. :P
I don't even want to admit it, but I completely forgot to do this week's self-portrait up until super late Sunday night right before I went to bed hahaha. Whoops!
The light coming in the windows this morning was so on point that taking self-portraits was one of the first things I did after I waking up.
I slacked off and only took this set of self-portraits for this week. Normally I do a few, but Freya had been extra fussy so I didn't get much time without her in my arms. She's 3 months old now and that's normally one of the many times babies hit growth spurts, so I guess it makes sense that she's been fussy.
I had a feeling she'd spit up on me as soon as I set her on my chest, but I did it anyway...lol!
If I can go a whole day without getting covered in spit-up, then it's a great day! JK, it's a great day even if I am covered in spit-up...I wouldn't trade it for anything!
