There is so much I want to share (probably a novels worth) but not enough space on the blog to do so! lol

Liam is now 3 months old and is such a sweet baby. We are extremely lucky to have him home with us.  This year has been the hardest year of my life…I’ve been challenged emotionally, physically, and mentally. I have also been blessed beyond my wildest dreams. They say most babies smile between 1-3 months of age; Liam smiled at me when he was only 3 days old and has smiled at me every day since then. I think it was his way of telling me that our lives would be okay and “normal.”  And we are doing great! We all just had to adjust to “OUR NEW NORMAL.”  We spend a lot of time visiting with doctors locally and have now started to travel to the Spina Bifida Clinic in Salt Lake City, UT. We do PT exercises with Liam a few times a day.  We are extremely grateful for how active his legs have been the past two months (he didn’t have much leg movement at birth). Right now we are keeping a very close eye on his left dislocated hip and his sweet little head (since there is still extra fluid in there). We are hoping to avoid hip and shunt surgery, so far things seem to be going well. But things can definitely change…

We’ve been told that he will probably hit milestones later than the average baby and there are still a lot of unknowns, so it is a bit of a waiting game.  Liam has three physical therapists and they all believe that Liam will be able to walk with braces or a walker!  I have a feeling he will try to run with his braces, his father is a bit of a daredevil after all. And Liam loves kicking those legs of his and I truly believe miracles happen. In the NICU they told us he didn’t have much movement in his left leg and now he kicks it around like crazy!

Here he is lifting his head up high a week before turning 3 months during some PT exercises:

I am back to photographing sessions. I love photography now more than ever! However, my life is definitely a lot busier these days with Liam’s appointments (his calendar is busier than mine sometimes! ;) . Which means that I will be cutting back on the number of sessions I photograph each month and simplifying the way we do things around here. One of the things we are doing to simplify our lives is to get rid of our main website and create a blogsite! Currently working on it now and am looking forward to sharing it with you!

How early should you book? As soon as you know that you want me to photograph your little one. The earlier the better. I’ve already started to book sessions for December. I know what you are thinking, December is 5 months away and its still 100+ degrees outside! I am currently booking for August through December. =)

So if you have a little one on the way or want to capture their next milestone, contact me to schedule a complimentary Design Consultation so we can plan your session.

I am back!

July 5, 2014

Happy 4th of July weekend! Is anybody still out there? Does anyone still remember me? lol I disappeared from my business fb page and blog for a few months but I am BACK! I am officially back to shooting sessions! Can you tell I am excited  I will be posting more details this upcoming week. Make sure to tune in, there is so much to tell you. In the meantime, enjoy a photograph of my sweet little miracle…

As many of you have noticed I have been a tad absent from blogging and posting on facebook.  Reason for that is that our little boy, Liam, was diagnosed with Spina Bifida recently. There is an opening in his spine which causes extra fluid to build up in his brain. This causes paralysis in certain parts of the legs, bowel and bladder issues, and a few other things.  He will require surgery right after he is born. There are so many unknowns when it comes to spina bifida, our child will most likely need braces to help him walk, a wheelchair down the road, or there have been some miracle cases where they can walk independently. When it comes to his little brain they won’t really know the damage the extra fluid has caused until he is born.  Due to the wide range of possibilities of spina bifida, we are left with a lot of “maybes,” “probably,” and “ifs.”

Through prayer Troy and I have been comforted. We know that the Lord is watching over us. After all, he only gives us what we can handle. No matter if Liam has the “best” or “worst” case scenario of spina bifida I know that Troy and I were meant to be his parents and I am counting down the days until I get to hold him in my arms. I’ve been told by doctors and mothers of kids with spina bifida that the journey in front of us will not be an easy one. There will be a lot of doctors appointments, physical therapy, and other possible surgeries throughout his life.  Even though it isn’t the journey we had originally planned for, I know it will be a journey worth taking.

This past week has been unexpected to say the least. After meeting with different doctors, reaching out to mothers with children who have spina bifida, and doing ALOT of internet research we started looking into fetal surgery. I was originally against it. The thought of my unborn child having surgery scared me to death, especially when I heard all the risks involved. But we decided to pray about it and have the Lord guide us.  We both felt prompted to see if we would even be eligible for the fetal surgery.  So this past Monday we had some tests done at my high risk ob’s office and later that afternoon his office had put me into contact with Gina, from the Colorado Fetal Care Center (CFCC) inside the Children’s Hospital Colorado (one of 4 hospitals in the US that does this surgery).  Gina had us fly out the next day to Denver, Colorado. The next few days we took a lot of tests to see if me and Liam would be good candidates for the fetal surgery. We gathered a lot of information from the doctors and asked a lot of questions. We weighed the possible risks against the benefits and felt it would be good to do. After a really long week of tests and appointments we got the OK and are scheduled for fetal surgery tomorrow morning.  If all goes well after the surgery we will be able to fly home to Las Vegas in 3 weeks, and I will be on bedrest with weekly monitoring until Liam arrives. There is no “cure” for spina bifida, this surgery will not fix it, however, doing the surgery now instead of post birth has some great benefits and can give him a better quality of life.

I will probably be on maternity leave until May. I will keep everyone posted via facebook. If you have an order pending or session booked with me I will be in contact with you via email. As you can see, we’ve had a lot going on with our little family. Thank you for your patience, kindness, and understanding…
