Now that we are approaching November (crazy!), I thought I would share a little pregnancy update with some questions I get a lot, along with sharing the details for my maternity leave.
When is my Due Date?
I am due December 26th (yes a little Christmas baby) so I’m 32 weeks pregnant tomorrow!
How am I feeling?
For the most part I’m feeling good. I’m starting to slow down a bit and after a day of shooting, I can definitely feel it. I’ve been having a lot of round ligament pains and frequent Braxton Hicks each day. At my appointment last week, baby boy sounded healthy, and for that we are super thankful!
Do we have a name picked out yet?
Yes, we do! But we aren’t sharing it publicly until he’s here!
Am I accepting any more sessions this Fall?
No, I am actually booked for the rest of the year. I am so sorry to those of you who haven’t been able to schedule a session with me this Fall. I hate letting people down but I am happy to provide recommendations for other local photographers while I am on leave if you’d like to email me.
Will I be taking a Maternity Leave?
Yes, my last sessions wrap up towards the middle to end of November. I will spend the rest of November and December wrapping up editing sessions, and then spending time preparing for Baby Miller’s arrival! I will still reply to emails, phone calls, etc.. through the first few weeks of December, but then I’m officially on maternity leave from December 15th until March 1st.
Can I book a session for the spring while you’re on maternity leave?
Absolutely! During maternity leave I will still be booking 2018 sessions, but will have an email auto-responder up so expect a much slower response. I do not plan to check emails for the first few weeks after he’s born, so keep that in mind.
What if I know now that I want to book a session for March, April or May 2018?
Spring time is generally super busy for me, so if you want to schedule your session before I go on maternity leave, go ahead and email me to ensure your spot!
Will I be having Spring Mini Sessions in 2018 like I normally do?
I will but they may be a little later in the spring next year. Being a new mom and juggling his and my schedule is something I’m going to have to learn, but I will post all of the details when they roll out in 2018.
How you can find out more about my pregnancy progress?
Thank you so much to everyone for all of your support! I am looking forward to welcoming a new arrival to our family.
