I love that despite the pain of those contractions, when you hold your newborn baby in your arms you forget it all. The joy of holding your baby in your arms fills your heart to the brim! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

With my first baby, I would hide in the bathroom or the car to nurse. It was the same with my second. Once my third came around ten years later, I didn’t care quite so much whether I offended people anymore. But I still cared some, and so if I felt I’d offend people, I would again isolate myself to feed my baby.⁣

Once my fourth baby came I decided that I was done hiding and isolating myself. I nurse her in church, in restaurants, at family gatherings. If she’s hungry or needs comfort, she gets to nurse uncovered. It has been so liberating. ⁣

My experience has also been extremely positive. No one has ever asked me to leave or cover up. ⁣
I do often ask men if they’re comfortable with me feeding her, and they always, always say yes. ⁣

But I know this isn’t everyone’s experience and we still have a long way to go to normalize breastfeeding.⁣

Have you breastfed in public? What was your experience?

“Breastfeeding reminds us of the universal truth of abundance; the more we give out, the more we are filled up, and that divine nourishment - the source from which we all draw is, like a mother's breast, ever full and ever flowing.” -Sarah Buckley⁣

One of the most beautiful images taken of a man being present with the woman he loves. Through the hours of labor, he spoke maybe 3 words. He wasn't distracted. He wasn't apathetic. He was intently focused on the woman bringing his child into the world. The amount of empathy men contain is incredible. We may have a society that hinders them from showing it but it is certainly in there. It is a sort of healing once they tap into it for the people they love the most.

I can’t describe the rush I get being awake countless hours, waiting to welcome fresh life earth side. It gives me life. Witnessing mothers conquer mountains, giving all they have. They give me life. You are brave. You are capable. You are KICK ASS! Mommas, evict ANY fear that doesn’t speak to your WILDLY BEAUTIFUL future!! Whatever your birth plan may be, you’re going to ROCK IT! #birthphotography #birthphotographer #dallasbirthphotographer

“Self-portraits are a way of revealing something about oneself.” -Eric Kandel⁣


To me, portraits aren’t things to be taken lightly. They strip us bare somehow and are uncomfortably revealing sometimes. A portrait can lie, but even the lies we tell reveal so much about who we are, what we are trying to hide or who we wish we were. So over the last several months I have approached the project of a self portrait thoughtfully. ⁣

When am I most authentically myself? The answer is difficult and easy all at once. I am most myself with my children and husband. They get the best of me, and the worst. All of me. They’ve been the ones who have stripped me bare to reveal what’s really inside. Do I believe I am patient? The best answer is how patient I am with my children. Do I believe I am kind? My husband can probably give the most accurate answer. ⁣ It seemed fitting that my portrait would therefore include them.


So here I am. This is me, or part of me anyway. ⁣

White umbilical cord.
Baby feet.
Fresh post partum belly for baby to rest upon.
I mean...anyone else's ovaries just exploding? 😫💓

Miss Annabelle is a week old today!! She came out 7.12 lbs and 18 1/2” long. And as you can tell she had a thick head of hair. Her little coo’s made us all teary eyed and Momma and Daddy just fell instantly in love. 💕 Stay tuned for Annabelle’s birth story to hit the blog this week!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Just realized there are 3 seasons of Call the Midwife I haven’t seen on Netflix so I know where I’ll be all weekend. 👋🏻

“When you hold your baby in your arms the first time, and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him, but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity.” -Rose Kennedy -

Brand new baby cries are one of the sweetest sounds. Might not be so cute a few weeks later, at 2am, but in these first moments its the best sound EVER! #newborn #firstmoments #birthstory #birthphotography #dallasbirthphotographer

Repost from @thebirthphotog : Taking the time to sit still and take each other in is one of the hardest aspects of breast feeding for me. But it is also one of the most rewarding. -
This morning I woke up full of anxiety. I dove into the unsavory tasks of the day, like budgeting and cleaning, and didn’t want to stop. My baby girl is teething and wants to nurse frequently right now, but I kept trying to distract her with toys or snacks. Finally, I walked away from the bills and the mess and gave in. She cuddled into me and took a long nap while she nursed. Together we slowed down and rested, my mind quieted by staring at her peaceful face and long lashes. -
And this image captures that feeling. ❤️ -
