We all know how crazy life is.  Between sports, packing lunches, trying to be super mom, and staying sane—life can sometimes be overwhelming.  Trust me, I have 4 children and my minivan could double as a fallout shelter with all the items we collect throughout the week.  We try to get a pedicure for “mommy time” and the occasional “salon visit” but we sit there wondering what our house is going to look like when we return or what we should be doing instead of sitting in the salon. 

It is nice to do these little sporadic things for us—but we never really get the opportunity to really feel gorgeous.  Even when we go to weddings by the time the sitter arrives, we rush to get dressed, put make up on, throw on those super comfortable shoes, conduct a special-ops mission out the door so the kids don’t see us—it’s still someone else’s “big” day.   

Remember your big day, and how simply gorgeous and beautiful you felt. You had your hair, makeup, toes, fingernails, and everything else perfected.  I don’t know about you but I was stunning on my wedding day.  I have pictures all over my house to verify that I was a perfect 10 on my wedding day.  Now we look in the mirror and I am feeling kind of like a mom with some pretty serious roots and gorgeous children.  Would we trade it, nope—not a single second. 

But where can we get pictures, other than a selfie, where we can look stunning (without a Snapchat filter with a floral wreath around our heads, don’t get me wrong, I love that filter) and feel like a 10 again? 

We did this session for Michelle and her family for this exact reason.  Michelle wanted pictures for her house and a window of time to feel beautiful.  She arrived at the session, her hair and makeup was completed. 

She slipped into a stunning designer dress she borrowed from Rent the Runway.  The sun was shining, the field was in bloom and she rocked her session.  Her family joined in, perfectly styled (check out my links and “what to wear”).

“I needed this,” said Michelle. “I arrived at the session and I was transformed into a fairy tale princess for my session, I didn’t realize how much I really needed this until I saw the photos-- I immediately teared up. 

“I know I am doing everything I can for my kids and sometimes it means a little sacrificing on my end.  This was for me and now I have updated photos of me and my husband that aren’t 10 years old, I look beautiful in them, and now my children are also a part of the photos.  These are not just your average family photos, these are truly amazing!”

Meet Cole Gibson http://www.staceycolemanphotography.com/blog/2017/6/meet-cole  

Meet Cole Gibson 

Cole was born on May 25th weighing almost 9 pounds and over 22 inches long.  His sister Abby was so excited to meet him as were Mom and Dad! Cole was so cozy in his home for 10 months he didn't want to leave! Mom was induced at on the morning of May 24th at 40 1/2 and after hours of trying to coax him out he refused to make his grand entrance! Finally, he decided to make his introduction to the world at 12:19 a.m. Mom thinks he just didn't his birthday to be May 24th.  We agree he was well worth the wait! He is the absolute cutest and his family is just so in love with him.

Meet Chase: A special Session with a Special Family http://www.staceycolemanphotography.com/blog/2017/6/meet-chase-a-special-session-with-a-special-family This session was for my dear friend Sasha.  Sasha and I share the same greatest loves: the love of our families and the love of photography.  We began to work together and our friendship continued to blossom as we supported each other in travels through motherhood and photography.  Sasha was pregnant with her second child and had a beautiful son Xander who was going to be an amazing big brother.  Her strength always amazed me.  When I found out that Sasha had delivered at just 26 weeks, I knew that if anyone could be strong for her baby girl—it would be Sasha.  Spending days and nights in the hospital, caring for her son, running a business, and keeping it all together-- Sasha was finally able to bring her baby girl Chase home on Mother’s Day.  Mother’s Day is always special, but this day brought tears to my eyes.  This session meant so much to me personally and I am thankful to have met Sasha and to now have met Chase.  Chase is already so much like her mother---strong, determined and beautiful.

Memories to be Cherished http://www.staceycolemanphotography.com/blog/2017/4/memories Do you remember what it felt like when your baby first clasped your finger?  Do you remember when your baby puckered her lips as she slept? These are the moments to capture and cherish.  Our little babies grow up in a blink of an eye, but we can cherish these memories forever.

The Sun and the Stars http://www.staceycolemanphotography.com/blog/2017/3/the-sun-and-the-stars When a child is brought into the world, two things magically happen, a baby is born and a mother is born.  This miracle brings an unmistakable bond. To capture the bond between mother and child is like capturing the sun and the stars.
