Oh, My Winnie… two months with you

I keep checking and re-checking the calendar because I just cannot believe that we’ve already had two months with her.

October was a busy month, with lots of developmental changes for her (including the real smiles that we can coerce out of her, lots of chatter and cooing, and scooting her little self across her playmat). It was also the month I went back to work, spending my first days away from her, and she spent her first evening with a “babysitter” (her Nana, who does so much more than babysit). I’ve also been spending a lot of time in my office, and together, we are slowly figuring out this working-mom-from-home thing.

It’s been a busy month, and I know it is just the beginning of the busyness that is life with a baby. And while I wish time would slow, the schedules would clear, and the to-do list would shorten, it’s not because I am overwhelmed… it’s because she’s so much more than we ever imagined, and I am desperate to hold on to every second.meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-002 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-9949 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-001 img_9915 img_9914 img_9912

This second month has been big for some Winnie-Elliott bonding… which is more like “Elliott is obsessed with Winnie and where ever Winnie is, Elliott isn’t far.”meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0019meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0152meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0174 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0176 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0154

And now, November 3rd, my girl is 2 months old.
She’s changed so much in the last month (and even more over the last two) – gone already are the days when I could snuggle her on my chest and she’d fall fast asleep. Now she fights it a little more, and we have to put in a little more work to get her to settle in. But when I’m walking the hallway with her in my arms and she puts her little arm around my shoulder like she’s doing it on purpose, I stop because I am so in love and I pray I never forget how that moment feels.  meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0068 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0072 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0078 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0064 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0065 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0089 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0084

  • I love having seniors do something that gets their eyes off of me and onto something they love. ❤️

  • Friday the 13th got me like 😎
I’m just excited it’s the weekend. 🙌🏻 I’ve got fun plans to help shower this girl and celebrate the fact that sheeee’s gettin’ marrrrrieeeed! 💍🎉💖 what are your weekend plans? better yet, what are your “mom’s-night-out” recovery tips for the next day because this momma is for sure going to need them. 😳🙈😂
  • I love shooting seniors. 🙌🏻 For years, it wasn’t something I made time for, and for years, I WAS MISSING OUT. 😫 I’ve recently added senior sessions to my regularly available services, and sessions like this one are why.
Katelyn’s senior session is on my blog. Hands-down, it’s one of my favorites. ♥️

  • a lot of my friends do “Friday introductions,” but I think I’m feeling “Wednesday with [one of] the Whites” ... 🤔😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
here are 3 things that probably tell you all there is to know about me and also happen to be 3 things you didn’t ask to know 🤓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I call my style “eclectic,” but really I’m just a sucker for a clearance sticker and can make anything work for the right price 💰🛒
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I would probably dislocate a shoulder or break my fingers before making multiple trips to get the groceries from the car 🤷🏼‍♀️🙈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• sometimes we throw away perfect tupperware to avoid emptying whatever leftovers are still inside 😳
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what are 3 things I don’t know about you? share at least 1 in the comments, I think this will be fun! 👏🏻

  • I am failing at instagram. I can’t make the algorithm work for me, and it’s making me bananas. 🍌🤪 Less than than half of my amazing and wonderful followers are seeing anything I post, literally (I’ve checked the provided insights, and only a handful of images have reached half or more of you for at least 6 months).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not upset, but I am frustrated because this is how I market my business. I knew changing how I used social media would affect my reach, but this result makes it difficult to be encouraged to use the app at all. 👎🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I could do things differently, I could sit online all day, I could spend hours interacting with posts and increasing my engagement, I could work really hard to be seen on here. I could play the @instagram game better. 🙄 
But why? Why would I do any of that? I want to market here, but not at the expense of it becoming an actual part-time, unpaid gig. I want to use this platform as a way to share my work and my life, but I value my time being unplugged and with my family over the increased exposure on here.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for now, I’ll just keep sharing hoping that the 25-30% of you who do see it will love it and appreciate it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ At the risk of sounding like every other account that is dealing with a similar plight, I do have a small request - if you can see my posts, it would just be the greatest if you would like them/comment on them so that I know who’s here. 🙏🏻😚
