We’re so very thrilled to announce the sweetest news: we’re expecting! Our little one is due early August and our hearts are oh so grateful for this baby.
The arrival of a baby in the midst of wedding season isn’t what we initially tried for, but our journey to becoming pregnant was a longer and therefore harder one than we thought. There were times of worry (mostly on my part – Shane with his patience and optimism was my shoulder to lean on), we kept trusting in God and his timing for our family.
Now, we’re researching strollers, getting as much sleep as possible and eating a lot. We’re dreaming about this little one and trying to grasp the reality of him or her, imagining what they will look like (I’m hoping for Shane’s hair!) and what life will look like with them. We’re planning and we’re preparing (but really, how much can first time parents really plan on?). And we’re praying for God’s protection for our sweet babe, whom we can’t wait to meet!
As for work, I’ll be shooting my last wedding before baby in July, and then taking a break to welcome our little one and devote my full attention to him or her (oh and we won’t be finding out the gender – we think the surprise is worth the wait!). I’ll be back at shooting come early September, though, for I have a few weddings lined up that I’m excited to get to document.
There. I’m so glad to finally be able to share this happy news with everyone! Thank you for still visiting this blog even if it’s been a little quiet as of late. I promise it’s been for the best of reasons :)
