The Fourth Awakens – January 2018
My family and I were so excited to announce this week that we are expecting our 4th child come January 2018. Of course, nothing in this house is complete without a little Star Wars flare! So we gathered costumes and played off of the most recent installment, “The Force Awakens” and turned it into “The FOURTH Awakens!”
My dear friend, and amazing fellow photographer, Megann Robinson of Megan Robinson Photography helped us by photographing our crazy family all dressed up. Of course, I had a hard time picking a favorite image, but the rainbow in the corner of one image in particular stuck out to me.
A rainbow (baby) after the storm
If you weren’t aware, a baby born after a loss (miscarriage) is called a rainbow baby. That child is like the rainbow after the storm of pain from a loss. Last year we lost our baby girl at just 14 weeks. It was a difficult and painful time, however I am so grateful for each day I get to carry this rainbow baby.
What does this mean for me as a client?
I’m sure this leaves you with a few questions. I will try to answer them here the best I can. First, yes this is our last child. My husband and I know we are crazy, but so excited for the blessing of 4 children. Also, just like our other 3 children, we will not be finding out gender until his/her arrival! Even though it tortures my friends and family, there is nothing like finding out right in the delivery room!
Families. The exciting thing is that for you, this does not change much. I will still be taking clients right until mid-November as normal to ensure you have updated family photos and cards for Christmas. The mid-November deadline ensures everything is ready in time for the holidays and allows a little room in case we need to reschedule for rain. The only December sessions I will accept are newborns (as we can’t control when babies are born!). Then come January, I will be taking a couple of months off. I will start taking sessions late February to early March 2018. (Lucky for you, most families do not want their photos done in the mucky months of January or February!).
Of course, if you still have questions, let me know. I’m happy to answer what I can.
And now for the photos!
I know you’re really here to see my all dressed up as Princess Leia! The first is our “official” reveal movie poster. Then I will share a few more favorites from the session. Again, thank you to Megan Robinson for these beautiful photos of my family.
We appreciate your love and support.
