WELCOME BABY JUDE THOMAS SWEENEY | SEPTEMBER 16, 2014
Ok, everyone I have been seriously slacking on updating my personal, behind the lens, blogs! I think
it might have to do with becoming a new mom in the last 5 months and learning to juggle being a
work at home mom. So I have decided to bring you all up to date on the happenings of the Sweeney
family. As you all know I was pregnant last summer, waddling around shooting weddings and portrait
sessions in the heat with swollen feet. Being pregnant did not stop me though. I wanted to continue
working because it is my passion and its in my bones. I can't just stop photographing, it's what makes
me me! After working hard, getting everything all ready and projects sent and packaged to clients I was
ready for our little boy to arrive. On September 16th, 2015 Jude Thomas Sweeney was born. He had
our hearts at his first cries. We were so blessed to have had such an amazing birth and healthy beautiful baby
boy. I was instantly in love and have been for the past 5 months! These photos are the a few a snapped at the
hospital and our first days at home. He seems so little now looking back and has changed and grown so much!
I had to personally document this time in our life because it is so precious the first days with your first baby.
Becoming a mom is like a dream, a foggy happy crazy dream. It all can be a blur and you feel
all of this love and emotions you never thought were possible to feel, like falling in love all over again
every second of the day. All the while you are just wondering how this little human could possibly be yours,
how could this have happened, it is truly a miracle. I knew I wanted to document this with my art because
yes iphone photos are great but real photographs tell a completely different story. My love and passion for photography
has actually grown and become much more deep and meaningful since becoming a mom.
I will continue to post photos and blog about Jude, he is one of my favorite new little subjects!
