The Borchgrevink Family is having another baby this December! Bring on all things boy!
Good morning, friends, and happy Monday! Today on the blog things are going to get a little personal. You see, the hubby and I decided we'd like to try for *one* more baby, as we already have three sassy little girls we like to call the Tiny Tribe of Wild Women. As parents, we cannot express our joy in raising our little clan of red headed gals, and felt like if we were going to have a fourth baby, now is the time. We would like the little ones to be close in age and grow up together, as friends.
As some of you know, Kevin, my spouse, is a stay at home Dad to our kiddos and helps me with the business side of my photography. I shoot full time, for a living, and this blog post will cover some details about sessions for the rest of the year, maternity leave, and what type of work I'll be taking on. Because I photograph family/newborns for a living, I am sharing details with you.
The Calendar for 2017
With my last three pregnancies, I photographed clients until I was 42 weeks pregnant, had a baby, and then immediately went back to work a few days after coming home from the hospital. While I do bounce back super quickly and am extremely blessed to have easy pregnancies, I have decided to close my family calendar for the rest of the year. If you're already on the calendar for any family/maternity/child session between August and November, please know your session is still good to go. I will, however, not be taking fall/winter family sessions this year so I may enjoy my last pregnancy and not have 60 clients per month. It's really hard to balance working life, family life, social obligations and be present as a wife and mother when you're shooting 2-3 sessions/day for several months straight.
I'll continue taking newborns, however, since they're in studio and what I currently specialize in. I'll be taking newborns until the last week of November. This means, I will not be taking December due dates, but will be taking January due dates. After this, I'll be on maternity leave for December and part of January.
BABY PLAN MEMBERSHIPS
If you're currently a baby plan client, have no fear. I will be finishing out your plans and if your baby plan milestone session (such as 6 or 12 months) takes place in December, when I happen to be on maternity leave, you can either do your session in November or later in January. My e-mail is always open with any concerns or questions you may have. I absolutely never want you to feel like your session is not important to me. Milestone sessions are flexible since it's more of a "sitter" session meaning your session takes place when baby is sitting up, but not yet walking. This can be anytime from 6-8 months, as most babies don't walk until closer to 10-12 months.
Gender Reveal & Pregnancy Announcement
Kevin and I are definitely on the more "laid back" side of things. We have three young children and our lives are controlled chaos at best; we've learned things will never be picture perfect or inspired by Pintrest because that's not who we are. This in mind, we decided to do an easy announcement in which we allowed our kiddos to have fun and play in my studio. We turned on their favorite Taylor Swift music, blew up some balloons and also dressed them in blue shirts, since blue is typically associated with all things boy. My mother in law was super kind to help me put everything together since it was a heavy work week for me.
Here are some of my favorite shots of the kiddos!
Thanks for stopping by the 'ol blog and taking time to read about the latest adventure! I look forward to sharing images of the little boy we're having in December!
