Elegant Black & Magenta Winter Wedding Inspiration with Evergreen Flower Co. | Columbus, Oh

In January I had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful styled shoot with my once bride now turned good friend Heather. She recently started her own floral business called Evergreen Flower Co. and is one of the most brilliant girls I know. Seriously--she even takes amazing photographs. I can't say enough good things about Heather--she has the golden touch when it comes to floral design and it's an honor to work alongside her. 

The manager and wonderful staff at Wolf's Ridge Brewing was very accommodating with hosting our shoot in Columbus, Ohio. Afterwards Heather, her husband Loftur and I had lunch and it was so good! [ I'm anxious to take Will back for some of the short rib tacos. ] Jen from the smithery lent us some of their gorgeous custom made jewelry that went along perfectly with the theme of the shoot.

Benjamin Jeffrey | Birth Story | Miami Valley South

When we found out we were pregnant for the fourth time, Will and I both swore it happened while we were in California last year when we were there for a wedding/vacation. As the results came back from our first ultra-sound we were wrong and realized he'd be coming sooner then we thought. Since I had to have c-sections with Annie and Cash, I opted to do them with Emmaline and Ben because it was already familiar to me. It is a very painful recovery, but always worth it. 

Last Friday we went in to deliver our sweet baby boy, Benjamin Jeffrey. I've always loved the name Ben, since I can remember. Benjamin means "son of my right hand" and his middle name is Jeffrey after my dad. Jeffrey means "God's peace, or peaceful gift".

My first time holding him. With a c-section I always have to wait until they are done stitching me back up.

The first few days home were really rough, as any momma would know. I think I was a little more emotional this time than with the others, but it only lasted a day or two. Since he has already started to sleep well during the night I'm regaining sanity and starting to feel more normal with those few extra hours of sleep. 

Since the kids weren't able to come to the hospital (because of a recent flu ban), we had to wait for several days to see them--it was really hard on us, and we contemplated several times on bringing them up to the hospital window to let them peek in. We waited it out, and set up the video camera for their first reactions to meeting "baby" Ben. I knew Emmaline would be excited. She was so interested in touching my belly and hearing about her brother while I was pregnant. Cash was another story. He rarely cared to touch my stomach to feel the baby move, and never took too much interest in the fact that he would have another sibling. Probably because Emmaline always tries to eat his legos [scary I know], and knock over his blocks. He was much more excited than I thought he would be--grinning from ear to ear the entire time he held him! He didn't want to put him down. Annie was just as I thought she'd be, and I know she'll be a wonderful big sister--she's had a little practice!

He's as sweet as can be, and it's really hard to put him down sometimes. I'm adjusting to having the others home with him on top of recovering, and so far it's going ok, Some days have been harder then others, but we will figure this thing out-- we always have--parenting really is the best gift I could've ever asked for. Thank you so much to friends and family who have texted, called and brought food over. We are so grateful for your love and support. We are blessed. 

p.s. I am also so grateful for Will's support over these past months. He has not only been a husband and a father, but working endless hours to give me a beautiful new kitchen in our new home. I am also SO grateful for his talents and that he was able to take these images for me/us. I know it can be frustrating sometimes being the one behind the camera and not getting to have the full experience by watching and observing, and soaking it in--but he was willing to take pictures at every birth for me, and I am so thankful I have these images to look back on.
