Brynna turns ONE today!!! I can’t get enough of her crinkly nose, dimpled cheek smile, and those piercing blue eyes! This year has been full of ups and downs, little sleep (there IS such a thing as a good night sleep right!? I haven’t had one in over a year, so I’m starting to doubt that it ever existed…), and so much laughter and joy and love I can’t even put it into words! I remember when Wyatt turned one, I was so very sad that the year had flown by so quickly. With Brynna Kate, part of me aches to hold her as a newborn again, but I’m actually more excited for what’s to come!
There is nothing in this world that can fully prepare you for becoming a parent. People tell you how much you will love your child, and you start to feel that while you’re pregnant, but it’s not until that moment that you first hold your baby that you realize a kind of love you’ve never known before. It transforms your whole life, and you will never be the same. I absolutely adore capturing these early moments between parents and their new babies. There’s something special about meeting in their home, photographing their nursery that they have so lovingly prepared, and watching them love on their new baby…and capturing this for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law made it that much more incredible!
Last week I shared a bit of my heart as I talked about why things are quieter over here on the blog. The love and support y’all gave was so encouraging, so thank you to everyone who took the time to comment or even text or email me! It meant the world. :-) I adore being a momma and I know it’s the most important job that I will ever have, so I don’t take it lightly. That being said, I thought it was about time I share a quick update on the kids with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you catch a peek of them now and then, but a lot of our day to day happenings are over on our personal Instagram (feel free to follow along there).
I am so thrilled that you have found your way here! I’m Karen, a wedding and lifestyle photographer with a passion for ice cream, dogs, and Gilmore Girls. My blog is a place where I can share love stories with you, whether it’s an engagement, a wedding day, or the welcoming of a new baby! It is also a scrapbook of my life and a little glimpse into our home, our love, and our family. I hope you will enjoy following along!
