Madison Alabama Newborn Lifestyle Photographer: An Unexpected Gift

My life is a little crazy right now…  It is a wonderful crazy but crazy none the less.  I am determined to rock this “mom of 4” thing but right now I feel like I am barely keeping my head above water!  Emma was born August 1st and I gave myself 1 month before we started our home-school year.  Our last 3 weeks of school have gone great but there is no way to get around the fact that it is just one more time intensive thing that I have to fit in the day.  Ethan is 6 and working his way through 1st grade, Lauren is 3 and enjoying lots of preschool activities, Noah is 1 and BUSY, Emma is 7 weeks old now and is just needing the normal amount of attention a newborn requires.

Did I mention my life is crazy right now? lol

When my husband and I got married he said he wanted 3-4 kids and I said 4-5…  Fast forward 11 years and our 4th child is 7 weeks old and I am struggling with the idea that this might be our last baby.  I LOVE babies so this is a hard thing for me to process through.  Do I want to be pregnant again? NO!  Am I feeling overwhelmed with what is currently on my plate? YES!  Do I dream of a time when I will have more time to devote to my photography business? ALL the time!  Am I ready for the idea of being “done” with babies?  Now that is a MUCH harder question to answer…

With that said, our most recent addition was not a “planned” addition.  We knew we wanted another baby but she was not “in the plan” yet.  This past year was supposed to be all about JMP!  Instead I spent it pregnant and knowing that I would have to take things much slower.  It was a struggle.  I had planed out the whole year already and all of the sudden everything I had planned needed to be changed or put on hold.  Emma is just about the sweetest little person you have ever met.  I can’t imagine our life without her and she has 3 adoring older siblings that we have to protect her from because of how “aggressively” they love on her!  We are blessed beyond measure and I thank God every day that he didn’t let me have my plan.

I was busy cleaning up our living room trying to get ready for company and glanced over to her swing.  I can’t express the love I have for this little person.  She is simply perfect, exactly the way God intended her to be, in our family for a reason.  How is that not one of the most beautiful things in life?

How she can possibly sleep this peacefully through a 6, 3 and 1 year old’s noise I have no idea but I know without a doubt she is a precious gift and I refuse to wish away the days!  I am going to try my hardest to soak it all in, because babies don’t keep and she just might be my last…

Allee is 2!!! – Madison Alabama Family Photographer Jenni M Photography

Our first session got rained out…  Bummer right?  Well, I couldn’t be happier with the images I got!  This location is one of my favorites in Madison Al.  It has so many natural elements and all nice and close together.  I love the job of using natural light in an outdoor environment.  The textures and changing variables are always simple and challenging at the same time.  It makes it almost impossible to duplicate the same image twice!  It keeps me on my toes and forces me to stay creative and not fall in to a rut ;-)

After a session, I always rush home to play with the images!  This session was no different, I got home only to find some images that were so simple and genuine…  Oh how I LOVE these!!!  I have been working with Allee’s mom for about a year now and we have become really great friends.  I have also had the privilege of being her photographer as well!  I say “privilege” because who could not consider it something special when she has children that look like THIS!!!  (you can find their Family Photos and Ella Brook’s Birthday Photos  here) Good grief!  This was a mini session and I had the most horrible time choosing my 10 favorites.  She is simply adorable!  Happy birthday Allee :-)
