Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! [From a Snow-less MN]

"Simplify the Holidays" they say.

Everywhere I turn, a well-intentioned, serene, and wise individual reminds me of the importance of simplifying this holiday season.  Yet, everywhere I turn, I am given no practical suggestions.

Thank you, World.

Family Photos | Buffalo, MN Lifestyle Photography

My reflection led me right to my biggest fear. What if I am so excited to see them, I will forget about taking pictures and just talk about which station is now airing Mindy Project and who the Gilmore Girls should end up with? This is a real concern.  My actual nightmare is an entire photo session of no photos.  How will I explain that to my loved ones who trusted me to photograph their story? Will they hate me forever? How embarrassing!

Missing the Photograph or Missing Motherhood?

Meandering down the road, the baby quietly content in the stroller and her big brother pushing his stuffed bunny in my old doll stroller.  Everything about this moment is marvelous.  All I can think is, “I wish I had my phone.”  Why?  Because grandma’s would die to see this moment.  Instagram clearly needs to display this adorableness for the entire world to see. My disappointment that I could not share this picture via technology rocked me.

Newborn & Family Photography [Buffalo, Minnesota] - August

Nine months later, I am able adore this newborn.  It took nine months for me to recover from my own little Baby Cakes - to truly LOVE holding a teeny tiny person.  Now that I no longer am up six times a night, I am able to look at this woman and not hate her.  Why would I hate such a sweet and kind individual?  After delivering a child in the last week, sleeping one hour the previous night, and getting everyone ready for photos, she looks GORGEOUS.  But I don't hate her.  I promise.   I might be a little jealous of how fabulously she is pulling this having-a-baby-thing off.  Maybe.
