Mama Martin's Maternity Session

I had posted this on my pregnancy blog, but wanted to post on my regular blog about this session!

We had our maternity session taken when I was 36 weeks. I wanted to get my belly as big as possible to take these pictures. I didn't want the typical studio maternity session showing off bare belly. I wanted something that looked like a piece of art that we can hang around the house. Plus I was super self conscious of showing my bare belly. I just did not like showing off the line that was going down the middle of my belly. So I told my awesome wedding photographer, Montage Photographers, my vision on what I was looking for and he totally delivered!!

The weather was not very ideal. There wasn't any sun light and mainly it just very cloudy. Luckily there was no rain. Thank goodness! I really want to take pictures in an open field. We found a development behind Old Town Spring. There were some gorgeous houses back there, but there were also alot of open fields that we took advantage of.

I have to say this maternity session was a major work out for me. Climbing up sand hills and over overgrown brush was so much work. I was so sore and worn out, but it was totally worth it!! Here are some pictures from my photographers blog. The rest of the session you can see here!!
I had to get at least one picture with our furbabies.
This love seat is an antique. It was my great great grandfather's. I believe this was made in the mid 1800's

  1. I have been reading this blog and your pregnancy blog for a while now, since you first started your pregnancy blog actually!

    I was just wondering how everything with the baby is. I'm guessing that you gave birth by now, because it's been almost a month since your due date!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.






The card that I got through Shutterfly.com. Love them!


This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.


Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....







Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 


The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.




Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
