Welcome to my blog! I’m a photographer based in Orange County, California. Wedding photography is what I specialize in but I love capturing ALL the special moments life has to offer! This blog serves as my online journal where I’ll post pictures from my most recent photo shoots, share my favorite “YouTube” videos, post adorable pictures of my dogs (yes, I’m one of “those” people), and talk about anything else I feel like! Take a look around…I hope you enjoy your time here!
Soooooo….I wish I could start off this post on a happy note but I’m all about keeping things real. Pregnancy for me so far has been….difficult. Before I got pregnant, I knew about the morning sickness, exhaustion, etc. What I didn’t know is about the heart burn…OH THE HEART BURN!!! Not every pregnant woman experiences this “oh so lovely-NOT!!!” symptom of pregnancy. I just happen to be one of the lucky ones who experience this terrible TERRIBLE symptom. It pretty much started the week after I found out I was pregnant and has pretty much been a constant in my life for the past 3 or so months. On top of that, I have another lovely symptom…horrible BLOATING that makes me feel like I just stuffed my face at a buffet even though I might have just had half a sandwich. This is another “common” symptom of pregnancy of which I was unaware. I’ve tried nearly EVERYTHING with some to no relief. I feel most most yucky at night which happens to be right around the time Doug gets home from work (lucky for Doug, right?). As you can imagine, I haven’t been the happiest of campers around here. However, there is a silver lining to all of this “yuck” in my life right now. The silver lining is my lovely, wonderful, AMAZING husband Doug :-)
7 years ago (to this day actually), I married the love of my life. We promised to stand by each others side for better (or worse). While I wouldn’t consider this time in my life the “worst”, it’s definitely not the “better”. Doug has been so sensitive, sweet, and understanding during these past few months when I haven’t felt my best. I’ve been grumpy, not happy, weepy, irritated, and just plain blah and Doug (for the most part…lol) has been everything I’ve needed in a partner and husband. I expected lots of things to change when I got pregnant but the one thing I didn’t expect to change was my feelings for Doug. I have fallen in love with him 10x over for being such a great rock for me to lean on when all I want to do is curl up and cry sometimes.
On this day, our 7 year wedding anniversary, I thought it only appropriate to profess my love & APPRECIATION to my sweet husband for just being him. I have never felt so incredibly lucky to be married to Doug as I do this very second! I love you so much my sweetheart and can’t wait for you to get home from work today so we can celebrate :-)
As happy as I look in this picture, I’m even happier now :-)
