Once in a blue moon I take the time to photograph my very own children…… Christian, Cullen and Lydia came to the studio all dressed in white for their updated sibling portraits! We chose to photograph them in the “white room” in my studio to give the shoot a clean, modern feel. I love the interaction between them and I feel that I was able to really capture their individual personalities !?
How has motherhood changed you as a woman?
Wow, the question is how has it NOT changed me 🙂 I am a completely different person now that I am a Mommy of 3 tiny ones. I have learned the meaning of putting others before your own needs and desires… in my opinion that is the definition of “motherhood”.
Tell us a little about your family?
The Konieczka Family consist of Daddy (Eli), Mommy (Amy), Big Brother (Christian), Little Brother (Cullen), Little Sister (Lydia) and Pet Mini Pig (Pigwart). I have a full time studio located in the historic antique district in our hometown of Denham Springs, La. My husband is an entrepreneur as well owning a local home maintenance company. With two small business owners, 5 family members and a pet pig we literally hang on for the ride life takes us. We love adventure and having big dreams. We are currently building our very first home on 6 acres of land, we are calling it the Konieczka Farm. You can follow all our life adventures on instagram @amykphotog
What is one family tradition you have raised your children with?
Church. As a family we always attend and freely give our time at our local home church, Kings Harvest Fellowship. My husband and I met there, grew up there, were married there, dedicated our children to the Lord there and now raising our family in the same church
Favorite family vacation?
Well, we were recently just brave enough to attempt our first family vacation since the kids are 3,4 and 6. We ventured off to the coast and enjoyed a condo on the beach. It was perfect. The kids are ready to go back to their “other house on the beach”.
What advice would you give new mothers about raising children?
The best advice is to submerse yourself with positive influence, encouraging and supporting friends and mentors. I personally had 4 babies in 5 years and I know 100% I would not have survived without my support group and lovely friends. If you do not currently have mentors or close friends I would recommend reaching out to your local mommy groups in your community, that is a great place to start!
What are your beauty must haves as a mom?
Hahahaha, a shower and lipgloss.
Kind words about your photographer?
I think she is pretty awesome, heehee.
