The quiet moments…

Ever since our 4th child was born in August it seems that life has just never gotten back “under control”.  We had a newborn, my husband began his fall semester, we started our home school year, the fall busy season for JMP started up and now the holidays…  I am exhausted, grouchy and typically just trying to play catch up most of the time now.  This is so foreign to me…  I know I am doing a LOT…  It just feels like the crazy is creeping in to my life. lol

There have been more days than I care to admit that I just want to bury my head under a pillow to just drown out the noise.  To block out the constant chatter of a 4 year old, to not hear the fighting, or even the squealing of a good time, to not hear my 4 month old cry any more during one of her fussy days…  I love them more than my own life, more than anything on this earth but sometimes my ears are just tired.

Sometimes I lay in bed at night, looking at Pinterest, playing candy crush or just browsing for my next idea and I can’t keep my eyes open.  I forge ahead and force my eyelids open for just a few more minutes only because I know as soon as I fall asleep the quiet will be gone.  The next conscious moment will be filled with a baby wanting to eat or a child with a bad dream or a “morning mommy” and the chatter will begin again…  Just a few more minutes…  Sometimes I feel like I wait all day for those few quiet moments…

This morning I woke up early, not for any specific reason except I needed to get some things done in the quiet.  I have been wanting to take some photos of them sleeping but have just never followed through…  I am so glad I did <3  These little people are such a precious gift and this is just a season.  The images remind me that I need to soak in their littleness, it wont be around for long.  Even as I type this I have my baby in my lap and has fallen asleep to the clicking of the keyboard.  They grow up so fast.  In the mean time, when I am overwhelmed and my ears are tired I need to choose my moments, the quiet moments, and rest in the knowledge that God has made me to be enough.  Even though I may not think the strokes of daily life are beautiful by themselves right now, our life IS beautiful and I need to remember that and change my perspective a bit…

Family Lifestyle Photography In Madison and Huntsville Alabama – Cook Family

This session has been in the works for almost a year now.  LeAnn mentioned it to me a LONG time ago and we both were in love with the idea but it just wasn’t the right time until now!

What is a snuggle session?

About 30 min before I arrived LeAnn moved all the kids in to one bed and told them to go back to sleep.  That is where I found them when I arrived at 7am.  I don’t know about you but I LOVE taking pictures of my kids sleeping.  They look so much older when they are awake, but when they sleep they are still little <3

On the list of “shots to get” were: sleeping, morning snuggles, feet, blanket hugs, reading, jumping on the bed, pillow fight and hot chocolate.  It was such a fun time for the kids as well as me.  You should have seen their faces light up when we announced the “next thing” each time.  Priceless <3

These are only a smattering of my favorites but I think they will give you a good idea of what a lifestyle photography session with Jenni M Photography can look like :-)

Family Photography In Madison and Huntsville Alabama – Lewis Family

I must say I absolutely love how this sweet family’s photos turned out <3  We changed the date at the last minute because it was so cold and I must say I am SO glad we did!  The weather, the sunset, the day was just glorious!  We met in Downtown Huntsville and just strolled around looking for spots that would make a “pretty picture”.  Honestly, even if we had been in a wide open field with nothing else around I think it still would have turned out great.  Their daughter is ADORABLE and I don’t think she is capable of a bad photo!!!  Walking with them, I kept thinking back to when we only had one child and what a sweet beautiful time that was.  Our family was brand new and I am so sentimental about my babies being little it doesn’t take much to make me walk down my memory’s winding lane.

Family Photography In Madison and Huntsville Alabama – Martin Family

There is something about a mother and daughter that is just pure sweetness.  I had such a wonderful time with these two and was blown away by how genuine and loving Lilly was to her Mom.  In some of the images it is just SO obvious how much she loves and cares for her!  I pray my daughters look at me that way when they are her age <3  Oh, have I mentioned how much I love freckled red heads???  Seriously in heaven <3
