- Leo - aka Megababy - turned five months old today. I spent all week thinking he was born on the 8th and almost missed it, but thankfully my mom happened to mention that he was five months today. I probably shouldn't share that, and I probably also shouldn't share that my husband and I have both forgotten his middle name, but hey, by number three things get trickier. Anyway, here he is in all his glory, my 22lb five month old who wears 18 month clothes and is the happiest, most content and social baby I have ever met, ever. Also, more photos of this wonderful chubbiness in my stories, because, duh. 😍

- There are moments when you look at your child and simultaneously see the babe you knew since first breath, and the adult they are quickly transforming into. It's the past and the future all tangled into one moment; hopes and fears and dreams swirling together - who they are, who they might be, all that they can be. And you just have to pause, and breathe, and let go for the thousandth time, because parenthood is so much letting go and risking it all - and watching your baby learn to fly.

- Do I post too many close ups? Probably. But I can't help it - I am a huge huge fan of the tight shots, and getting in uncomfortably close with my clients. Because it's up close that love happens. It's butterfly kisses and touching heads and snuggles and holding hands. It's leaning in close and whispering words of affirmation to a loved one and it's tickles and noses squished together and too tight hugs and being immersed in the sweet scent of your favorite person. It's intimate and it's beautiful and I can't get enough of it. So let me into your personal space a little bit and I think we'll both be happy you did.

- Dear mamas, you are enough. If your house is messy and your floors are dirty, you are still enough. If your children watched hours of TV and ate cookies for dinner, you are still enough. If your belly is full of stretch marks and your boobs have seen better days and you're still hanging onto those last 15 (or 25, or whatever) pounds, you are still enough. If you never fit back into your pre pregnancy clothes or wear a bikini again, you are still enough. If you sometimes love motherhood and sometimes just really struggle with it, you are still enough. If you have one baby or ten, if you space them far apart or squeeze them close together, you are still enough. If you feel overwhelmed and frustrated and impatient and confused, you are still enough. If you love your children, you will always be enough. And in fact, you are their world. #theheartfulphotogs

- I know I've shared this image before, but it's truly one of my favorites ever of my children. I've made a conscious effort to document them regularly, and have actually done a decent job, though I'm ridiculously far behind on sharing. But late is better than never, so today on the blog are some photos of Leo at six weeks old, and some thoughts on the the bittersweet experiences of having a last baby. Who knew so many happy and sad feelings could be rolled up into one perfect little package. πŸ’•

- While Instagram has helped connect me to so many wonderful people, and is also one of my most important platforms for connecting with new clients, I find myself often needing a breather from it. It's great in many ways, but seeing your work/self/ideas/whatever it is that you put out there for the world to see, summed up in tiny squares with your number of followers and catchy description of yourself, waiting for the masses to judge, gets tiring. I have been questioning constantly how to not just function within social media, but to find a happy place in it. If I have to be here, how do I contribute something at least a little meaningful, rather than adding to the noise, or participating in the popularity contest vibe it so often has that just reminds me of high school? How do I stay genuine, but not overshare, or come across as a mess? Or do I just stick to sharing my work, nothing personal, because there's an over abundance of sharing already and I'm running a business for goodness sakes? I'm not an important person, and I'm not under any illusions that my thoughts should be heard by anyone else. But at the same time, who I am is what allows me to connect with my clients and get to know them and understand them and capture them in the way that I do. I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I've met with a client and during our session we've talked life or parenthood or whatever, and we've both left feeling more encouraged because of our shared experiences and because we've found someone else who isn't pretending they've got it all figured out. β€’ If I'm going to be on social media (and I need to be), it just feels more right to take the opportunity to share a bit more of the personal stuff, the real things. It's who I am. I don't share because I think people need to hear or because it's important, but I figure I might as well be honest, and maybe connect with and hopefully encourage a few people along the way. β€’ If my words miss their mark with you and I'm adding to the noise in your life, move along; that's fine. But if you feel oppressed by the current obsession with perfection, and burdened by trying to measure up, well, I won't add to that. πŸ’›
