Chelsi Poirrier  Wife 💍 | Believer 🙏🏼 | Mama to Huxley James 👶🏻 📸 I don’t just take pictures; I capture memories.

My little Huxley is almost 6 weeks old already! So crazy to think he would still be inside my belly for another 5 weeks at this point. He is growing SO much (look back at the last photo I posted of him on my feed!) He loves when mama & daddy bathe him & we love that quality time with him. This photo was taken last night after his bath (notice the fuzzy post-bath hair). He loves holding onto my finger after his bath. He was worn out from a long day of pulling out his nasal cannula (I guess that’s Huxley language for “I don’t need this thing!”) and his feeding tube (Huxley language for “I’m ready to breastfeed!”) He is on track to reach 3lbs this weekend. Just 5 more weeks until he is full-term, so hopefully just 5 weeks or less until he gets to come home with us & meet his big sister Daisy 🐶 #thehuxleyjames

I just spent the last few hours going through all the clothes that Huxley got at my baby shower last weekend. I am filled with so many emotions, looking at those tiny clothes & realizing how huge they would all be on him right now. We celebrated him reaching 2 lbs, 7 oz last night, which is still so tiny yet it’s almost a lb more than he weighed at birth just 3 1/2 weeks ago.

Yesterday I cuddled Huxley for an hour & I sat there staring at him as he slept & I had tears fill my eyes. He is doing so well in NICU but I want more than anything to be able to bring my boy home with me when I leave the hospital each day. As I sit here, drinking my tea, I am reminded that I have to “let God” because I know God’s hand is in this all; I have to let God heal, let God work, let God love. He is writing Huxley’s story this way so we can tell others of God’s provision, healing, & goodness. (Zoom in on the little quote on the tea bag tag. Kind of relevant, isn’t it?) •

Huxley is now 5 days old & doing so well! His bilirubin levels are good today so he didn’t need to be under the blue lights. His feedings are going well so they upped the amount they will feed him. He’s been actively trying to pull his nasal cannula out; I guess he’s telling us he doesn’t need that either. I went home from the hospital last night & it was tough leaving him there, but his doctors & nurses are phenomenal so I know he’s in great hands. I can’t wait for him to come home in a few months. I can’t wait to tell him how strong he was from the beginning. I can’t wait to tell him how many people prayed for him. I can’t wait for this to be a part of his story about how faithful God is. #thehuxleyjames

Our little guy Huxley James Poirrier was born on Monday, April 30 at 6:56pm via c-section. He was born at only 29 weeks 2 days so he’s a tiny one, weighing in at only 1lb 13oz. Baby & I are both doing great. Huxley cried as soon as he was born, so that was very reassuring. His little lungs were fighting hard though so he ended up being put on a ventilator. After a few hours of recovery, I was able to go see him in NICU where he will be living for the next several weeks. I know this is all part of God’s plan for Huxley’s story so we are not worried or fearful. Join us in praying for our little guy as he fights to get stronger, as well as for his NICU team. #thehuxleyjames

I got up early on my only day to sleep in so I could photograph this total babe & her gorgeous jewelry. Totally worth it! Check out her jewelry store at @artifactadventure. I cannot get over how unique but trendy it is! •

When Stevie & I met for coffee a few weeks ago, I knew her senior session was going to be so much fun. She literally laughed the whole time. I have some amazing clients, y’all. I’m still booking senior sessions, so message me!

It’s been a whirlwind of an afternoon. Christopher & I were so excited to see our bebe & find out the gender (it’s a boy!) but so sad to hear what my high risk doctor saw during the ultrasound. I found out early on that I have a subchorionic hemorrhage & a month ago, we found out I actually have two hemorrhages. My doctor wanted me to see a high risk doctor because of this. While the high risk doctor didn’t see any signs of hemorrhages, she did find a handful of extremely concerning things. She said the baby is measuring way smaller than he should be at this point & that the ventricles in his brain don’t look normal. But he was super active during the ultrasound, so that was reassuring to see. Also, the placenta is not good & isn’t getting all the nutrients it needs to supply the baby with all the good stuff. I had to go to the hospital for genetic bloodwork to test for a variety of chromosomal abnormalities since my older sister has a chromosome defect. Christopher, bebe boy, & I could really use your prayers for healing & peace of mind. I know God is the ultimate healer & I believe He works miracles, but this is far from an ideal situation. All we want is a healthy, happy little boy to love. 💙🙏🏼

I’ve been MIA for a while because I’ve been busy growing a human. But I wanted to remind my amazing followers that I photograph seniors. So if you are a senior & want to have a super fun time taking your senior portraits, message me for info on how to book your session! •

In July, our little family will be growing by one. After a year of a lot of tears & prayers, Christopher & I were ecstatic when we saw two pink lines on a home pregnancy test back in early November. My heart goes out to all the ladies (& their men) who are having trouble trying to conceive. The only thing that gave me encouragement in our year of trying was knowing that God has a plan & if it isn’t happening yet, it’s because it isn’t His perfect time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, our little baby has been growing for 11 weeks. I have 29 more weeks to enjoy growing this precious baby then our lives will be changed forever. We cannot wait to hold our little one & to see what God has in store for us as a family of three. Can’t wait to meet bebe Poirrier in July 2018. 👶🏼✨💕 •

I just delivered my last gallery of 2017. I’m so thankful for all my awesome clients, especially those who have continued to book with me year after year. I’m looking forward to photographing more seniors, couples, & families in 2018 & making new client friends. Have a merry Christmas & a fantastic new year! •
