I don’t really know how to start this post. I feel helpless and alone, but it’s really not about me right now.

My family in Canada has been having a horrible month, filled with unexpected and shocking news. I wish more than anything that I could be with them right now, but it’s simply not feasible.

I don’t know how to contribute anything to the suffering and misery taking place across the border, other than sharing my heartbroken words on this blog. In a way, I guess this holds a bit of closure for me.


I will never understand why God allows newborn lives to be taken. I’m trying to remain in the fact that He knows what He’s doing, but nevertheless, my heart is so broken right now for my family members. I can’t stop crying for that sweet little boy. My only consolation – and I pray that one day his parents will take comfort in this as well – is that the boy who left us to go be with our God in Heaven will never experience heartbreak, suffering or anything awful that this world has to offer. He will never have to go through anything difficult, nor will he ever have to atone for the sins that were never committed. He is perfect, and he is alive and well with our Father who loves him so much.

The reason I decided to publish this post on my blog instead of just keeping it as a draft, is to ask you for prayer for my family. Pray for the little boy’s mom and dad, who are suffering right now. Pray for peace and comfort. Please pray the same for his grandparents, as well as the rest of my family, who will be attending his funeral on Saturday.

God Bless.


30 Weeks & A Flower Headband

01 02 03 04

Flowers are the next big thing for this season. Whether you’re rocking a humongous flower crown (see [here] for an example of that) or a cutsie little flower headband, you’re doing it right.

I really love this little headband because not only are the flowers petite and wearable for any casual outfit, they match pretty much everything. I wore it with a red plaid shirt last week while shooting a maternity session, and it worked perfectly to hide this huge zit on my forehead as well as keep my hair out of my eyes… Managed to kill 2 birds with one stone for that one. 😉

29 Weeks & A Flower Crown

So, I’m sorry (not sorry) for the photo overload… I couldn’t decide which ones I liked best! And guess what? I’ve got more coming. I decided to break the pictures down into 2 parts. This is the “color” version – aka part 1 – and part 2 will all be in black and white.

While black and white photos aren’t necessarily my favorite (who doesn’t prefer color to b&w?!), I picked a few that I thought would look better without color. You’ll have to wait a few days until I post them, though!

I wanted to give a shout-out to my girl, [Lindsey], who took these photos and made me the beautiful flower crown featured above! She’s one talented woman, folks, and I am so blessed to know her!! Thank you tons, Lindsey!
