Dear James Michael

  • A Letter to Our Baby Boy

Our Sweet James Michael,

Your story started unexpectantly back in October of 2017. Your sister was just 8 months old and getting pregnant with another baby wasn’t on your momma and daddy’s radar. When we were trying to get pregnant with your sister, it took half a year of very calculated dates, cycles, and tons of prayer. We weren’t the people who just got pregnant instantly. So you can imagine how shocked we were when I took a pregnancy test right before leaving for an engagement session and it was positive. We couldn’t believe it. We were shocked but that quickly turned to excitement and thankfulness. 

Tech with Ty | Podcast Interview

  • A Conversation about the Beginning of My Journey

Hey friends! I wanted to blog this, because I feel like if I just share it on Instagram, I will lose the link to this a year from now, and I love it so much that I want it to be in my archives! My good friend Tyler Herrinton has launched something that I think has been stirring in him for a long time. He LOVES talking about Tech and helping others understand the tools of this industry. However, he also loves sharing about business, and so this new project is perfect for him!!! I’m excited, because I was asked to be the VERY first guest on the “Tech with Ty” PODCAST!

Everly’s Eleventh Month

This month seems a little sentimental because it’s the last month before she turns ONE!!!! It’s hard to organize these posts because Evy was born on the 18th, and so she turns a month older halfway through every month! She was entering her 11th month right before Christmas!! So this post may seem out of order but technically, it’s accurate! All of these images are from December 18th to January 18th! It’s crazy that next month will mark a full year of doing these posts for her! I’m not sure what the future will be with baby pics because once July is here, we’ll be starting over!
