Who doesn’t dream of the day you get to bring your first child home a sibling to snuggle? It’s that special moment each second time expecting mother fantasizes about the entire 10 months of pregnancy. When it finally comes true and you get to begin the start of your happily ever after as a family of four, it’s worth documenting. Linsey Middleton Photography captured it all as it unfolded, from the comfort of the family bed to the special moments all over their home in this beautiful lifestyle newborn photography gallery.
FROM THE MOTHER-
If you get any “me time”, how do you wind down or spend it?
Watching my favorite reality shows or napping!
Has your style changed since becoming a mom?
Yes, I appreciate my body more after becoming a mom and I don’t worry about how I look in an outfit. I wear what I want to wear.
How has motherhood changed you?
I’m far less self-centered than I was pre-kids.I have an immense responsibility to care for and raise these wonderful human beings and I certainly put that job as my first priority!
What would you say is the greatest challenge of being a working mom or stay at home mom?
Time management is difficult when you’re trying to meet everyone’s needs. I’ve learned to say “no” more at work so I can be more present for my kids. But it’s a challenge!
What helps you juggle motherhood, marriage/relationship, and career?
I know that I have to work to help provide for my family, and I have to be present for them, so I just do it! I find the balance somehow each day. Every day is different and presents new challenges both in my work and with my kids. I make time for both.
What is your greatest joy of motherhood?
The unconditional, amazing, indescribable love I feel for my kids.
What most surprised you about motherhood?
How some things just came naturally, like I knew what to do in a situation without even knowing I would! The mama bear instinct is real.
If you could give your child(ren) one piece of advice what would it be?
Know that you are endlessly loved.
