Heading to warmer weather

This April, I am attending my first ever workshop! I couldn’t be more excited! Ale Vidal from Imaginale is hosting her workshop in Arizona this Spring. I’m going to learn more about the video process and also to get some one on one coaching. It’s also going to be a great weekend of getting to know 10 other amazing photographers that share the same passion as I do. I need this so much…it’s just the getaway I need before Baby #2 comes and my life gets crazy again:)in a good way!

Now I really can’t wait for Spring to get here!

Prepping for the Spring

This past weekend, I had a wonderful time working with Danielle from Danielle Coppersmith Photography. We are planning her first video shoot for this spring AND we were brainstorming all kinds of awesome ideas that may be coming soon! Too soon to talk about now:)Our lovely model Taryn was amazing and I shot just a few little snippets of her and they were so beautiful I just had to put them together. No music for this little fun shoot. It was just an impromptu thing.
My spring is starting to fill up and I couldn’t be happier! I’m so thankful for the wonderful people that I’m going to be working with.

Here’s just a little peak into what is to come: ENJOY!

Bethany Giannini - You do beautiful work Jackie!! I’m really looking forward to see what you both come up with! And I should get myself on the books with you later this year- this is something I’ve been meaning to do! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And we have another boy!

Our first pictures of our second son! We couldn’t be happier!

20 weeks marks the time when we get to see our baby for the first time. There are so many emotions that go with that. I was nervous for the baby’s health, excited to find out if it is a boy or a girl, and scared of adding another member to our family. Luckily, everything looks good! When the Dr. came in and said that, I think both Tim and I exhaled. We are so blessed!
For some reason I thought for sure we were having a girl. I have been much sicker this time with nausea, migraines and overall nasty feeling. Tim was sure we were having a boy. When the tech told us it was a boy, Tim teared up and kissed little Jace. He said that this is when it becomes real for him. Seeing his little baby boy moving around and waving hi! I think those moments are ones that I will never forget.

I am over the moon excited to have another little man in the house. I am crazy outnumbered, but I kinda like it!
Well, we are 20 more weeks away from meeting little Mr. and I can’t wait!

Love you already

Part 1: Amy and Jeff – Waiting for Baby

I met Amy and Jeff very briefly at a friend’s wedding a couple summers ago. They photographed her wedding and their images were so beautiful. They knew how to capture love. When I found out recently that they were expecting their first baby, I knew that they would be the perfect couple to create a 2 part film about the anticipation of waiting for baby to come and after baby arrives.
I was so blessed to be able to do this for them. I cannot wait to meet their little boy. Part 2 will be just as amazing I’m sure!
Thank you Amy and Jeff, and little pup Tanner for such a great day!

This -30 degree weather is killing me! I guess I could rejoice that the sun is at least out, but Jace and I have been stuck inside for weeks now.
Hurry up Spring, so we can play at the park, go for walks and enjoy the sun!
