Eight years ago we did a newborn photoshoot with Lil’ J and she mostly wasn’t having it. Little Lee Lee also, wasn’t really feeling like posing for photos when she was a week old. It must be a thing with my daughters. I think it’s because they don’t like to be set down. Our first try Lee Lee was awake almost the entire time. Giving us the stink eye in all her photos.

But still, I was really excited to get some done, and Lindsay was just as persistent and super patient with my little one and she managed to get some absolutely gorgeous photographs of my stubborn little chunker.

The only person less excited for pictures is my husband, but he cooperated for a few, even after Lee Lee peed on him in the middle of it all.

These are truly works of art and I can’t wait to blow these up and show them off in our new home.

I hope you enjoy these half as much as I do, and if you’re in the market for family or newborn photography in the Austin area, be sure to check out Lindsay Mac.

 

 

 

 


“Mommy, what does D-O-O-R spell?” We were riding in the car and my daughter was reading the letters off of a button. It’s not exactly the question a mom wants to hear from her 8-year-old. By “normal” standards it’s one of those words someone her age would instantly see and know. The question sent a prick… read the rest.


This is part 2 of our first week of school you can read part 1 here “You don’t want to miss the bus!”   It’s pretty much the one thought that motivates my son to wake up and get moving in the morning. He’s not morning person. So getting him to go from eating his… read the rest.


My kids survived their first week of public school. But of course they did. It was I who nearly suffered a nervous breakdown. Though we stood outside and took some adorable first day of school photos, the truth of the matter is, it wasn’t all roses and sunshine. Getting out the door is the first… read the rest.


Period panties for girls a review and what we think.

As mothers our dream is to give our kids a better childhood than we had right? It’s only natural to want that. For me, middle school was hard. It wasn’t terrible, but it still sucked for so many reasons. For one, that’s when my period started. I’m not one of those people who can pinpoint… read the rest.


Mommy and me cheer vlog

School has been in for just a couple of weeks and the phrase absence makes the heart grow fonder has never rang more true. When my babies hop off the bus I’m eager to hear all about how their day went. I’m a little more excited than normal to help with homework. And I live… read the rest.


I spent nine months of my pregnancy freaking out about all of the changes ahead and how in the world this new little Sneaky would fit into our lives. Turns out little Lee Lee was just what we needed in our lives. I haven’t had baby fever in years. Now I find myself thinking this… read the rest.


Breastfeeding tips and how to create a lactation station breastfeeding basket

“Breast is best.” “Normalize breastfeeding.” Months before I had my first daughter I saw those phrases repeatedly online. But before I had kids, breastfeeding was anything but normal to me. I was a formula fed baby, and growing up I helped feed my little sisters. Bottle feeding was all I knew. During my first pregnancy… read the rest.
