Happy birthday to the man who offers the best advice through corny dad jokes. He has taught me what it means to be a father, and how to laugh at myself in any situation. Love you big guy!

My mom has always been in my corner, and has always loved me regardless of the crazy little boy antics I would get into. Like that time I cut her hair with a pair of scissors when I was 4, or that time I knocked over the Christmas Tree when I was 5. Happy birthday Mom!!!

{self portrait project} 8 weeks ๐Ÿ˜ณ...has it been that long baby girl since you first arrived? Yep. It has. ๐Ÿ˜ฉโœŒ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ #getin52 ! I feel so often these shots are not really IG 'worthy'...because they are so basic....it's difficult to get very creative with these shots ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ because I'm not really all that creative..๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉbut I'm still going to keep doing them and posting them. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Ultimately I have to remind myself that this feed is first and foremost for ME! And I 'should' be able to post pics I want without fear of them being 'liked' or not. It's hard finding the balance as a business person. Anyone else relate with their IG feed? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜˜ #thestruggleisreal ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

{self portrait project} Just a simple photo of us, but that face of hers y'all!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
It's been a crazy busy week for us so I've not been able to be on IG as much this week! Thanks for hanging with me guys!!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปxoxo

{self portrait series} Just a typical Monday morning around here. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Mixed feelings about technology and social media for that matter as I can from an age of none of this until much later in life. I'm 40...a childhood without internet...computers...no cell phones...and this idea of social media and the internet was likely pretty far fetched for most. But I'm a realist and this is the new world we live in and I can't keep my kids away from it forever. So for a while, we've tried to use technology as a tool for the most positive learning and fun. Trying to find the balance is hard, but we just do the best we can right. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Hi. I'm Amy. a fun, light-hearted 40yr. old (๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜œ) wife (to my very best friend), going on 13yrs; recruiter turned family photographer years before I even wanted kids. Mom to a boy (4) & girl (6weeks). Fun (maybe annoying ๐Ÿ˜‚) facts: ๐Ÿค” I'm fiercely independent to the aggravation of many ๐Ÿ˜œ. I'm a bit of a control freak; hard headed to a fault. ๐Ÿ˜ฉโœŒ๐ŸปI've been known to speak my mind maybe too candidly. Once my mind is made, it's pretty much guaranteed (99.9%) I'm not changing it. I'm known for NOT being a team player. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚Those closest to me know I'm incredibly empathetic & have a big, compassionate, kind heart maybe because I was 'the fat kid' all of my childhood...and well, that made me a better person even though at the time was rough. I'm incredibly patient. And while a realist for the most part, I'm more a 'half glass full' gal. I cherish my family & value my girlfriend-ships so much; those relationships are vital to my happiness & well being, but also gotta have some alone time. I am a born again, God fearing, Jesus loving Christian (who is certain this has been the ultimate influence keeping me grounded & joyful most of my days) while being respectful of those who don't share in my belief. I love: photography, house DIY (we've taken on some crazy ๐Ÿ˜ณprojects over the years), sewing, cooking, decorating, music, eating (oh icecream, ay-yai-Yai) ๐Ÿ™„. I hate mosquitos & coffee & putting on sunblock. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I prefer sweet over salty. Quality over quantity. Rarely wear much makeup. Never paint my nails. Vanilla over chocolate.Audio books are my jam! House is always quite tidy, minus pantry and closet. ๐Ÿ™ˆPhone over text: Can blab on the phone for days. ๐Ÿ˜œFavorite color: blue. Hated my crazy, wavy hair for years...now I LOVE it. Love being outside after sunset; smile maybe too much. ๐Ÿ™„ Love being a wife & mom, even though I'm a supporter of those who want neither. ๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๐ŸปI'd be a midwife or Dentist in another life...I have a thing for teeth & birth (weird, know) ๐Ÿ˜œI'm pretty 'crunchy'. (Google it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”) I'm a rule follower in general, but I'm not known for being a 'follower'. I'm just me. โค๏ธ Complicated & flawed as much as the next, but striving to be better always. Happy Friday!!!

{self portrait series} the most simple of photos....just so I remember how you used to fit on my lap like this โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ And guys!! I got this dress at Walmart for only $9.00!! ๐Ÿ˜ณIt's so cute, comfy and flattering! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™Œ Also...how to look 10lbs lighter in pics....๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” strategically position yourself under a 20mm lens and score.... ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜‚a thinner you. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

A little bit blurry. A whole lot crazy. Bedtime chaos is real, folks ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’โœจ

{self portrait project} This is us....family of four. ๐Ÿ˜œA rare shot of all of us together.
Don't let the sweet, smiley moment fool you, this two kiddo transition is no walk in the park, but there are glimmers of light in the shadows and I'm going to cling to those!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

At this moment, four years ago, I'd been in labor for over 12 hours already with this firecracker baby boy. It would be another 19 hours more ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณbefore he would make his grand arrival, born at home (planned...I know, I know...I'm one of 'those' weirdos ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜˜), on his due date! We love you so much buggy boo-boo and so happy (daily) you are a part of our crew! And what a fantastic big bro you already are to baby sister! โค๏ธHappy Birthday...a few hours early, to our firstborn, the one who made me a mommy...and the one who will always have a most cherished place in my heart.

{self portrait series} Maternity leave shenanigans. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Sorry, not sorry. ๐Ÿ™„If y'all had any idea the acrobat I've become to get these shots. ๐Ÿ˜œJust imagine...baby sleeping in me and me one handed...and maybe with the help of one foot ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™ˆ..yep...you heard me right...very...very carefully (and slowly ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ) setting up camera and tripod...while keeping baby asleep and safe (of course ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ) in my other arm. Maybe one day I'll video record myself setting these up. Quite a hilarious site for sure!!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I could not risk putting her down and waking. ๐Ÿ˜…But just look at this y'all!! I almost died when I realized after the fact that I caught her smiling too!!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ Talk about the stars aligning!! Seriously, it made all the silliness I went through worth it beyond measure!! #doingthehappydance #yesimalittlecrazy ๐Ÿ˜œ
