Every night before bed, or sometimes at dinner we play best and worst. What was your best and worst today? It’s just a little thing we do to keep communication open and give me a tiny bit of insight into what’s happening in her life. What things do you do to connect with your kids? Give me ALL the ideas! πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ . . . . . . . #texarkanatx #texarkanaphotographer #clarksvilletx #clarksvilletxphotographer #sulphursprings #paristexasphotographer #paristexaschildphotographer #myparistexaslifefeaturedpic #myparistexaslife #snapsocietydailyfav #thebloomforum #childphotographer #fallphotosession #goldenrod #dearphotographer #whywelovenature #dearestviewfinder #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #magicofchildhood

Somehow it’s been three years since this photo was taken. I was about 20 weeks pregnant with Atlas at this point... and here we are with him plus one earth-side and one in heaven. The month of October is dedicated to pregnancy and infant loss awareness and to spread the word that you are no alone if it happens to you. A lot has changed since the day this picture was taken. I was blissfully unaware that I had a 1 in 4 chance of losing him. I was blissfully unaware of the deep deep pain and sorrow burying a baby in your own backyard would bring. I was blissfully unaware that the words β€œthere is no heartbeat” would be the most devastating words I’d heard spoken. I was blissfully unaware that having a miscarriage (even early) would mean I would contract like I was delivering an alive baby. I was blissfully unaware that people say mean things when they don’t understand. I was blissfully unaware and I am ashamed. So ladies, mamas, and those who long to be, let’s rally around those who no longer have the pleasure of being blissfully unaware and carry some of their burden alongside them. #iam1in4 #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #ihadamiscarriage
Good morning PCOS πŸ¦‹ Thank you for making me look like I’m actually 30 weeks pregnant again. The bloating is real this morning and all I’ve had is fresh lemon squeezed into a cup with apple cider vinegar and warm water + a smoothie (Choc Happy Way Protein, almond milk and frozen mixed berries). I’ve been so good with my nutrition lately, admittedly I haven’t trained as much because well... I’m exhausted! Not just from work but juggling a teething, sooky, sleepless baby on my own is really putting the pressure on me. It can be so disheartening when food and exercise is the only way to cure your symptoms but your hormones just refuse to cooperate. I know consistency is the key but boy has my syndrome taken a massive toll on my emotions and how I see myself this week 😣 I’ve heard great things about some of the books from Dr Libby, and let’s be real... I’m not really into reading but if I learn a thing or two about my hormones, controlling my cravings for sugar etc., then it’s worth it right? . . . . . #motherhoodalive #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodsimplified #inbeautyandchaos #thebloomforum #beautyinmotherhood #motherandbaby #worldoflittles #kindredmemories #momblog #motherhoodrising #motherhoodunplugged #bestofmom #magicofchildhood #uniteinmotherhood #writeyouonmyheart #documentyourdays #pcos #pcosawareness #pcoswarrior #pcosweightlossjourney #pcossupport #pcosjourney
Since they were born, I’ve DIY’d all their Halloween costumes. This year - I’m tired. Lol. I’m OK with something bought. Clearly, he is NOT. He wants mama to make him β€œsumfing cool”. So we’re still undecided over here. Tell me, do you store buy or DIY?
I think pumpkin patch pictures might be my faves to look back on when I’m old and grey... they’re just the the heart warmiest (yep. Heart warmiest)β € β € They’re right up there with naked baby butt pics and bubble beard pics... oh! And we can’t forget angsty preteen pics πŸ˜‚ Anyone else just looove to look back on those?! β € β € I’m so glad I’m fine tuning my photog skills so I can catch my girls in their prime (because we were all at our best at 13 years of age.. no identity crisis whatsoever, nope)... high resolution y’all... super high resolution. πŸ€£β € β € Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine and show y’all mine in my stories... only if you return the favorrrrr 😜
this gorgeous family was sure they would never have a dog... then she came along πŸ’•πŸΆ #officiallydogpeoplenow #welcometotheclub πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
Gift from our neighbors... And by gift I mean, I collected it from the public road after it fell from their trees and was rotting on the ground. I recently read an article about Norwegians placing their excess fruit on their fence so that those in need may take what they need. We personally have more lemons and oranges than we know what to do with during peak season and I'm always giving friends bags so they can "pick their own". Every time I pass these pomegranate trees I think about offering a trade. Would you think I was crazy if you were said tree owner? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 🌿 #pomegranate #creatingmyownparadise #crazyplantlady #plantlady #growyourown #sharethewealth #leaflove #bhgflowers #smpliving #bhg #southernlivingmag #mybhg #lovewhereyoudwell #getgrowing #pocketofmyhome #inspiredbycolor #watchthisinstagood #growyourown #fall #bhghome #inspiredbythis #cameramama #lifewellcaptured #momswithcameras #beyondthewonderlust #thegallerycollective #thebloomforum #clickinmoms #dearphotographer #thebloomforum #thesincerestoryteller #lifewellcaptured #dearestviewfinder
Teething babies are H A R D. I feel like I’m constantly trying to find ways to help her feel better. I can honestly say how helpful this Cool Gums Teething Gel is from @winknaturals she has done so much better with it! Thank you @winknaturals for basically saving us from this grumpy teething babe😊 #kennedyjames
β€œCorey, thank you so much for making our family photo session so special! Your attention to all the details prior, during, and after our session went above and beyond. You truly have a gift of making beautiful memories to treasure forever.” I’m so honored to have such great clients that trust me to capture their beautiful families! 😘
Good morning! Thank you to all of you who have placed a bid. As you can see bidding has been pretty slow. We need your help please share this with your friends and family and let them know about the auction.

I like to think of kids as my clients too because I want them to be able to look back on these pictures with their parents when they're older. I know they'll cherish them. That's why I always encourage parents to get in the photo too! #clickinmoms #thebloomforum #mynameismama #dearphotographer #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #editingforartists #thesincerestoryteller
What a lucky little lady she is, to be surrounded by the sweetest of boys, whom are full of love and tenderness. I captured so many images of these 3 together and each one makes my heart soften. To witness all this love, and from two young boys, it’s something else I tell you, something that can’t be put into words, something that can only be seen with the eyes and felt with the heart.

Walks and talks and laughter and love- the things fathers and daughters should always do.
I photographed this sweet family when he was a teeny tiny newborn and now he is a little over a year. I love watching my littlest clients grow and watching their personalities bloom in front of my lens. I feel so incredibly thankful for my all clients who support my small business πŸ’• β€’ β€’ #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #simplychildren #thesincerestoryteller #childhoodunplugged #dearestviewfinder #thebloomforum #ourcandidlife #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #heaventhrumylens #candidchildhood #thefamilycollective #ctvisit #fairfieldcountyct #westport #ridgefieldct #wiltonct #connecticutlife #katonahny #lifestylenewbornphotography #lifestylefamilyphotography

Can we just talk about much of a freaking babe she is 😍
Fierce fall foxy fashion.
Another gallery ready to go! I’m head down bum up tackling my huge pile before the three newborn sessions and one family shoot I have scheduled over the next few days.

I'm pretty sure fear holds me back from doing SO many things. The fear of being seen as weird... The fear of failure.... The fear of no response.... But I've realized that all fear really does is keep me down. That there's NO way I'm going to even know unless I let go of that fear and just DO. So I'm embracing my weird side and I'm hanging it all out there (and I posted some details about my personal project in my @stephaniebryanphoto IG stories today...baby steps, lol). β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Anyone else have fear as an unwanted friend? What does fear hold you back from doing??? And sorry for those of you who have seen this in multiple places today! I’m clearly owning this.... #doubleexposure #expiredkodak800
Sweet babes. ❀️

Collins loved all the pumpkins, she was having such fun trying to pick them all up, and showing us each one! Her mood changed once we got inside the greenhouse, she was very observant of all the spooky things. She just kept looking around taking it all in. 😱 We thought these Frankenstein pumpkins were pretty rad. @kuwaharawholesale really stepped up their game this year!

Maybe it’s the rainy weather, or maybe the season of his birthday coming up...but I miss my dad so much. I hate that this little buddy and his sister won’t ever remember him. I grieve the loss of him, and I go through the list of regrets almost daily. I hate that I felt like I let him down... I hate that I didn’t do more for him. I hate that I didn’t show him more grace and forgiveness when he was with us. Some days the weight of it all is heavier than other days, and today was just one of those days. But, Jesus didn’t tell us this life would be easy. In fact, He told us we would suffer. In the midst of suffering I pray. He listens. He comforts. He teaches me WHY this happened the way it did. He gets me through the hard days. I know my dad is dancing with our Lord, free of pain and full of love, full of forgiveness, pure from head to toe. I’m so grateful for that. When he was on this side of Heaven, my dad told me, β€œRemember to bird watch.” (He loved birds.) I haven’t ever been one to watch birds, but since his passing we make it a point to look for little reminders of my dad flying in the sky. Our little man loves looking for them too. In those hard moments and difficult seasons, I know God is with us and we will all be united one day in His Kingdom. For now, we’re just continuously thankful for new mercies every single day. ❀️ #GodisSoGood #chanigunnphotography . . . . . . . . . #magicofchildhood #ourlightwithin #dearestviewfinder #shared_joy #celebrate_childhood #the_sugar_jar #childrenseemagic #littlepiecesofchildhood #talesofthemoment #momswithcameras #b1withcommunity #b1withboys #b1withmoms #nothingisordinary #spomh #heartofhome #soulful_moments #cameramama #dearphotographer #boldemotionalcolorful #the_cic #thebloomforum #p52clicks #ourcandidlife #griefsupport #loveJesus

{ just pure wonderful }🌿 . I got home from work last night (on time too!) and walked into the wonderful smell of freshly baked banana bread that Cam and Ruby had baked yesterday afternoon🍞🍌-it was amazing and I will admit that is nearly all gone now 🀀 (bonus thing is he said he is going to make more today πŸ™ŒπŸ») He’d also done the laundry with fabric softener yesterday too and the towels felt aMAYzing. We don’t usually use fabric softener but after getting our new front loader have been finding that the washing has gone a little more crisp than it was with our top loader. Do you use fabric softener? Or hanged from a top to front loader and found the washing isn’t as soft? . . .

I moved to California just a couple weeks after high school graduation. I had no car,no connections, hadn’t even left my small town without family present let alone used a credit card before arriving. It was a huge adventure beginning with a year traveling with a dance company and living with a house full of other aspiring, crazy yet beautiful performers. 13 years later I packed up and went home. Not without degrees, challenging jobs, a first tiny house by the beach purchased, a husband, one daughter and one on the way. I wasn’t sad when we decided to leave as I felt like this chapter taught be some pretty concrete lessons in life and left me with many stories to tell. It was an idyllic adventure that shaped who I am now and while I don’t regret leaving it’s nice to be back..even if for a short while.🌿 β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #californiadreaming #californialiving #lalife #wanderlust #californialife #hollywoodhills #losangeles_la #howyouhome #documentyourdays #pursuitofhappiness #lifeisbeautiful #dearphotographer #everydaybeauty #shareawakening #apartmenttherapy #spiritualstoner #thepushdaily #cameramama #beachlife #youcreateyourownreality #openyourminds #beautybehindthemadness #letthekids #californialove #venicebeach #kidsforreal #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #thebloomforum #sabrinagrantpresets
