My Girl | Melton Hill Park, Knoxville, TN

I think a lot of women will tell you that after having your first baby, your brain just kinda “forgets” all the uncomfortable parts, making it a little more bearable to have more babies!  Well, that clearly happened with me.  I was in freak out mode the entire time with my first pregnancy (my little boy), and probably 3 weeks after he was born, I was already asking my husband when we could have another!  He thought I had lost my mind…

So, every now and then, I’d bring it back up, and he finally said I needed to let him “surprise” me.  So, early August of 2014, when our little boy was 8 months old, he threw away my birth control, and my jaw hit the floor when I couldn’t find it!  I was SOOO excited!!  I had enjoyed every ounce of motherhood so far, and wanted more!

Found out toward the end of October, and simultaneously decided to start a FULL home reno in January of 2015!  7 months later, we were putting on the finishing touches {you know…like an exterior door!}, and I went to the hospital for the THIRD time with contractions that were increasing in intensity.  I had been sent home so many times already, that I expected the same, and told my husband I’d be back later.

No bags packed, and no husband…and the doctor said I should stay and have this baby!!

I called Steve, and he was still putting in the exterior door to our house, so he hurried and packed a few things for us, and headed over to the hospital!  A couple hours later, we had a smooth c-section delivery, and our beautiful baby girl was born!  Her big brother absolutely adores her {even still today!}, and she is just an absolute fireball!  She’s sweet, funny, sassy, giggly, and I have LOVED being a mama to these two little gifts!

They’re both growing too too fast, but I’m thankful for being able to take time to photograph their sweetness, their personality, and their bond!  Enjoy my baby’s 3rd birthday photo shoot!!


I am obsessed with her hair – within less than a year, it went from stick straight to ringlet curls!

Can you hear the giggle??  She was having so much fun!!!  Picking flowers, twirling, and watching the sunset!

These two…I wish I could show a million little pictures of how much they love each other, and I have a trillion on my phone!  But nothing, and I mean NOTHING beats this photo right here.  There’s something about setting that lighting mood, and having a photo that speaks to the fact that they will always be there for each other.  I just am in awe of their budding friendship!

Probably my favorite picture of the bunch – those little cheeks, her whispy blonde hair,
and her concentration face.  Oh. My. Heart.

She’s recently started doing this little thing with her lips, usually when she
turns her head back, and I just think it’s the cutest thing ever!!  🙂
