I remember what it was like when I first found out I was pregnant with my second child. I was scared! I worried about the adjustment my first child would have, if I would be able to balance the infant/toddler workload. I worried about what my body would look like after having a second child, the expenses that would come with having a second child. If you are pregnant with your second child, you are not crazy! All the worries you are having, are completely normal! As moms, we want to be the very best for each of our children. So naturally we stress because new territory brings fear and doubt.
Having my second child turned out to be not as crazy as I had thought it was going to be. I was already living the mom life, with nap and bedtime routines. The “ABC’s”, “If You’re Happy and You Know It” and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” were already my top songs on my playlist and I was a pro at peek-a-boo and hide-n-seek. Adding my second son into the mix was quite easy because I was already living the life with my first child. Only now we were doing it with a sidekick.
I’ve learned a lot from my second child. He’s taught me to relax more, to be a better mom and that I’m capable of much more than I give myself credit for. Not only did I learn a thing or two from my second but he taught my first child about love in a way I could never have. The friendship they share is deeper then I could ever imagine. My oldest had to learn to share, what it’s like to be a leader and to be a good one. Things he might have never learned if it weren’t for my second child.
When Jade inquired me for her maternity photos for her second child, I was over joyed when they picked my package that offers both a maternity and newborn session. I was so excited to be the one to tell their infant/toddler life balance story for them. As moms, sometimes its hard for us to see the bigger picture when we’re in the everyday grind. So for me as a photographer, I try to tell the bigger picture with the photos I capture. I find great fulfillment in being able to share the love that comes from having a second child. As having mine has bought so many amazing experiences to our family’s lives. I’m so happy I got to shoot Jade and Zach’s beautiful family. I look forward to growing with them and capturing the bond that these two sweet girls will have as they grow into smart, talented young ladies! I know making a decision about who to have photograph your babies comes with a lot of trust. Jade and Zach, thank you so much for trusting me with your girls!
