This is it. The final blog post of your first year. It was faster this time around than the other two.
I find myself holding you so tight before I lay you down in your crib at night because I’ve done this enough to know that there will be a day when I can’t remember what it felt like for you to be tiny. Graham already feels like a little boy when I hold him. You are starting to feel that way but when you’re really tired and you kind of collapse on our shoulders, I’m reminded that you’re still tiny. You’re still our baby. When I think about this year, I think about…….
Goodness there are so many things. I’m honestly two months late writing this blog post (I’m going to back-date it!) because life is FULL. It’s full in the best way. I’m doing what I love to do…. I’m a momma and I’m running a business that uses my gifts to help people. It’s a life that I don’t feel like I deserve. I couldn’t have ever imagined any of it. Out of all of my roles, being a momma is the greatest joy of my life. I look at you and Evy and Graham (and James in heaven) and I think about my life before you all. It was wonderful but it was missing something. We had freedom and time and sleep and time for “us” but we also didn’t know that there was a love waiting for us that transform us in the best way. Becoming parents was the greatest thing that ever happened to us and we’re so grateful.
Rhett Boy, you are loved and cherished. Happy one year little nugget.
This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!
If you’ve ever been a member of KJ All Access, you know that it’s been an evolution since the beginning! Over 4 years of wedding content, engagement sessions, family sessions and so much more!
When you’re sorting 5,000+ photos after each wedding, staying organized is a huge priority!
We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
