I knew that vowing to blog every day would be challenging on days like today. Today when it was a gorgeous Florida day, when both kids were home all day, when we had a play date and family came over to help us unpack and get settled in our new house, when friends dropped by…

I was recently reading a blog post by Becka Robinson @ Life as an Artispreneur (found here) about choosing a word to describe your main intention for that new year. I loved this idea and as I was reading, my word came fast and furious: consistency. No doubt about it, my intentions and creative energy…

Congrats Rebecca on a successful 2014! You embraced it head on and came out stronger and better personally and professionally. The word I have to describe you for 2014 is proud – because I’m so proud of you!!

Gorgeous images! Love all the babies..

Not too long ago, I was at a newborn session at my studio.  I was sitting on the floor with my knees bent up towards the ceiling and my feet flat on the floor a few feet in front of me, providing a nice incline and cozy space to meet the new little babe in…

Thank you for sharing! When I saw the topic I had to read it and identified with this while article. I’m in a similar situation, I’m 38 have 2 beautiful children (5 & 3) and yet I still am wanting another. I also photograph maternity and newborns so I get my fill that way but it sometimes makes me want another more. I feel like I should be happy with what I have been blessed with already, yet I’m mourning my child bearing years and hoping somehow I could birth a 3rd. Good to know in not alone. Thank you for sharing your heart and your beautiful work.

Your talent is abundant Rebecca. You capture the written word as beautifully as you capture your images. You inspire me and put me in awe. You are raw and genuine and you’ve left your heart on the floor for all to see. I hope you find your peace with this. I truly believe there is a bigger plan and to simply trust in it without trying to figure out all the details ourselves. Don’t cut yourself off of the possibilities just because it seems impossible – if we all did that I wouldn’t be able to read this story on this crazy thing we call the internet 😉 Sending you my love.

Your post resonates with me. I got married older and I have 4 kids. Most people with think I’m crazy to feel sad that I won’t ever be pregnant again. But it makes me a little sad – in that complicated, conflicted way you describe.
