Happy Mother’s Day | ON Mom’s!

Over the last (almost) 7 years we have had some pretty amazing moms grace the Organic Newborn studio, and I never get tired of meeting new ones, chatting about motherhood, giving advice (from a mom of four!) listening to their stories of pregnancy, birth, and raising kids. I never get tired of being a part of this amazing moment in a women’s life!

Mother’s day is a beautiful day to reflect on these mothers and just how amazing they are! So I thought I would do just that.

Here are a few of the mom’s we have met through the years. To all of you, I hope you have an amazing Mother’s day!

This is not an easy post for me to write, as I’ve always been proud and made my business a top priority in my life. Sometimes to a fault.

This last year I was injured in January of 2016 while shooting (small business, no L&I) and I blew it off until it got worse and caused me to fall. Hard. I ended up completely tearing four ligaments in my leg and ankle and causing permanent damage that required surgeries to fix. While learning about this we realized I actually needed surgery on both legs.

I, being the main provider for my family, kept working through the pain. On pain meds, but slowing down starting in February. I couldn’t do it but I couldn’t let my clients down either. Lesson learned, I did let my clients down more than I would have if I just stopped shooting and let myself heal. I made myself worse and I hurt my business in the process.

For that I apologize. If you were effected I deeply apologize. I know that some are frustrated, and now that I am capable of functioning I will do everything in my power to make it up to those clients.

So, update is basically this. I had my entire right leg reconstructed in December. They fixed the ligaments with tendons from my foot. Broke my foot and restructured the arch from cavus to flat and then put three large screws in my heel. Then they opened my leg and cut the muscles so my foot will bend correctly. Soon they will be doing this to the other leg (hopefully 2018 if I can push it that long) recovery was extremely difficult. Between before and after surgery I was non-weight bearing for probably 8-9 months with breaks to shoot Santa as I knew that was so important to you guys. I have to relearn to walk and fix the lifetime of muscle memory from my foot to my chest. Pain is hard, physical therapy is hard and walking is VERY hard but I am slowly doing it.

Something I have learned from this is that all small business owners need to have a back up plan. When it comes to these injuries some clients do not care that you aren’t a fully employed business. I went through three people trying to “employ” someone to help me and it really just made so much more of a mess.

To the clients that sent me cards, texts, and well wishes. Thank you. To my lovely photographer friends (y’all no who you are) Thank you. Thank you for standing by my side while I freak out over everything and everyone.

Things will be changing, I don’t think I will ever be a full time photographer again. While we are on bad news, my Santa booked his 2017 calendar while I was in the hospital so that will either not happen this year or I will have to find a new santa.

Know that no matter what happens, Organic Newborn has been a part of my life for almost 7 years and I absolutely love it <3 good or bad it has been something so wonderful, dreams come true. Hopefully we can continue capturing babies and enjoying the good that this business has brought me.

Shoreline Baby Photographer | Lennox

Oh Lennox, she was not a huge fan of modeling. Oh so very serious and mad at me most of the time. Those eyes though, how can you not love the serious face and doe eyes? Always my favorite! Of course we got a couple smiles for mom too.
