Hey y'all! It's been a while since I posted and I'm so sorry for that! But I hope to make up for it with several awesome announcements! First and most importantly, please welcome Owen James Karp to the world! Well, three months ago, that is. =)

I was due on August 13th, but he just couldn't wait!! On July 13th at 2am, my water broke suddenly and so began our birthing day! A little over 12 hours later, Owen was born via c-section due to complications with my labor. I had so hoped to have another natural birth as I had with my daughter, but though I was disappointed and a bit traumatized, the c-section brought Owen into the world safely and that's what matters most. =) Even at a month early, he was a sizable 6 lbs, 8 oz and was 19 in long. He's now well on his way to having the chubby rolls that I love so much in babies!

The next announcement is also super exciting for me! On Monday, I was thrilled to have been featured in an article about maternity boudoir on the hugely popular BabyCenter.com!! This feature is the biggest I've ever had in terms of circulation and I'm so very honored. Especially because the other photographer featured is one of my favorite boudoir photographers and business mentors, Jennifer Williams of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Even though she's on the other side of the continent, I WILL be photographed by her one day!!! Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think!!

I had hoped to have my own maternity boudoir session done in July, but Owen's early arrival foiled my plans. =( So instead, we have the most beautiful newborn photos. Amanda of Kimberlin Gray Photography is the best newborn photographer in the whole region, if not the whole state! I'm so glad we were able to work with her to capture the so short newborn stage of Owen's life and our lives.  (Click on the photos to enlarge.)

As I was SUPPOSED to have a whole month of maternity leave before Owen's birth, I'm behind in this area, but the last announcement is that there are a lot of changes coming up for Seriously Sexy Boudoir!! Be on the lookout for a slightly new name, a new studio, new sets, a new website, new products, new pricing and a redefined luxury boudoir experience! If you think a boudoir shoot with us sounded like fun before, you'll be over the moon working with us now. =)

Here's a back-of-the-camera picture from one of my latest sessions, using one of the brand new sets!  I'm so in love with how beautifully it photographs!!

Anyway, I'm so glad to be back and can't wait to share more with y'all soon! As always, if you have any questions or want to have a great time having a truly luxurious supermodel experience, shoot me an email to schedule a free consultation! I'd love to chat with you about what you have in mind and how we can totally exceed your expectations. =)
