A few weeks back I received this note from a client of mine, a new mom I had just done newborn pictures for. Hey Rachel! Hope this doesn’t sound creepy, but I’ve been so excited for our pictures that I often find myself on your Instagram looking at your previous newborn shots! Tonight I took […]

Part of what I’ve learned through therapy for my anxiety disorder is having to sit with my feelings. I mean that literally. I will find a place to sit down when I catch myself feeling especially anxious in an attempt to scan my brain and pinpoint what is causing me to feel this way. Once […]


I’ve sat down to write this blog post more times than I can count. Or remember really. Thoughts fire throughout my brain so fast it’s hard to keep up with texts, emails, a blog, or life in general. How is he up from his nap already? Annnnnnd I’m leaking. Wait, did he just poop through […]

You woke me up to write this. You’re always on my mind. Our mind. I may not feel you yet But I do. You caught us by surprise How quickly you appeared. It was a Wednesday. 8/29. Two little lines. You made us laugh. You made us cry. We said a toast To you that […]
