    Mommy and Me Outfits: Baby Dedication

    Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 I can’t believe Arielle is 2 months old!! Time has certainly flown by. I am big on creating memories with my new family. As a mother who is a follower of Christ, it was important to have Arielle involved in the baby dedication at our home church.

    Maternity Photoshoot Reveal

Instead of doing the usual Christmas tree or holiday decor shoots, I thought it would be a great idea to do a rustic glam photoshoot. We were a little late with the reveal since we had to push our original shoot. But overall, I am very pleased with how it turned out and can’t wait for another photoshoot with baby Arielle, when she arrives. The shoot was done during my 30th…
