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.
People always say “Katelyn, how did you grow to this level?!” and the truth is, it all started with a blog. Blogging was TRULY my beginning! A decade ago, I was posting almost EVERYDAY and you can still find these posts today!
If you’re a photographer, it might seem hard to document your own family. Isn’t that ironic?! We spend our days documenting other’s lives but it’s hard to document our own!
When a new model or version comes out, it’s always tempting to upgrade and buy the next best thing! But do you really NEED it?!
A LOT has happened in 2022! Some things that we expected and others that threw us a curveball.. but I want to take a look back to see what worked well for us and what didn’t work so well!
If you’re a wedding photographer, chances are, you are VERY familiar with how much goes into creating a smooth, photo-friendly wedding day.
Have you ever thought, ‘I just can’t do this anymore!!! I’m DONE!’
