Things I have learned this Year

This year has truly been a long year for me.  I can’t say that it has been a bad year just a year with a lot of changes.  When I  go back to memory lane and think about all that has happened it’s a little overwhelming.  There are a few things that I have learned along the way.

May 27th, 2012 I got married to my wonderful husband.  Words of advice from someone who planned their own wedding.

- One, hire a wedding planner not just the day of but someone that is with you the entire planning process.  You want someone who can handle a lot of the details that would otherwise be stressing you out.

- Two, it’s a beautiful day, but it’s not as important as all the websites and t.v. shows lead you to believe.  It goes by so incredibly fast you’ll wonder why you fussed about so many little things.

- Three, don’t allow others to push you around, stand your ground.  Everyone will have an opinion about how you should do things.  The bottom line is do exactly what you want.  It’s your day, and your time to shine.

As most of you all know I am a professional photographer.  I love my job.  I am always learning and growing from those I photograph. One of the most memorable experiences I had this past June was I had the honor and pleasure of photographing my first birth.  It was the most beautiful experience  I have ever encountered in my life.  Without this job I wouldn’t be able to be be a part of peoples most treasured moments.  It’s truly the very best part of being a photographer.   A few word of advice for when you hire a photographer.

- One, do not hire someone because they are giving you the biggest discount.  The phrase, “you get what you pay for” truly applies to this.  Anyone can call themselves a professional photographer, but truly do your research.  You will thank yourself in the long run.

- Two, images are a window into your past not only for you, but your children and children’s children after you have left this planet.  It’s important to really like the photos that were taken from these event.  Once you have hired your photographer and you absolutely love their work, make sure you fully trust them and allow them to do the job that you paid them to do.

- Three, get to know your photographer.  Make sure your personalities jive.  You want to know your photographers temperament and overall demeanor.

Mircea and I are expecting out first child, the due date is June 1st 2013.  Having a baby is a huge deal.  Life changing.  I was convinced that getting pregnant would have taken a lot longer, but for us it was instant.  I was shocked when we found out.  I have mixed emotions about being pregnant and having a baby.  Some days I am really excited about it and can’t wait to hold the little thing and other days not so much.  A few thing I have learned from being pregnant.

- One, it’s not as glamorous as it looks on the outside.  Being pregnant is not easy.  Your body changes so much.  The symptoms you suffer from just down right suck.  To name a few nausea, major bloating and gas, and extreme fatigue.

- Two, it’s ok to be scared, the thought of pushing this thing out of my body is just down right scary!!!!  I never had to think about it until now.   Anytime there is a show with a woman giving labor I DO NOT want to watch.  I know millions and billions of woman have done it, but its still scary and it’s ok to be scared.

- Three, it’s ok to talk about it all.  One thing I have realized while being pregnant is a lot of site’s and people talk about what a beautiful time being pregnant is.  I am not denying that it is a special time, but a lot of woman, websites, and blogs don’t talk about the challenging aspect that a woman can go through while being pregnant.  One if my friends said it best, you go through a morning process of what your life use to be.  And for myself I would have to say that is very true.

I know my life as a mother will never be the same as what it is now.  I am excited for the challenge and like I said I can’t wait to meet this little bundle, but it’s ok for woman to feel a sense of sadness without it being attached to a bag of guilt.

I hope some of the things I have learned from this year can help you in some way or another.  I want to thank you if you have stuck around reading and keeping up with my blog.  I also want to wish you a wonderful 2013 and I hope you continue to enjoy my blog posts.

Our Honeymoon

0 Comments so far

After almost seven months of being married, and with a baby on the way, Mircea and I are finally on our honeymoon.  At the moment we are in our second location, a nice little place called the Teak Room, in Kauai.  The place is very nice but upon arriving we discovered the mosquitoes that will no doubt eat us alive over the next few days.  Luckily we have a zap light that will hopefully help, along with a friendly gecko that has found his way into the room.

13 Weeks and Counting

0 Comments so far

With the 3 am night snacks, crying outbursts while watching Modern Family, so far pregnancy has definitely been a roller coaster ride.  I have my happy days and my hide in the house days.  My belly has definitely grown and I have had to purchase maternity pants.  The body changes have definitely been a mind challenge for me.   The picture of me in the blue shirt I was 8 weeks and the picture of me in the grey shirt I was 13 weeks.  Mircea says there is not much of a change, I see a huge change.

Halloween

1 Comment

I absolutely love summer turning into fall, watching the leaves change and making our way into the holiday months.  When I think of Halloween as a kid, I think of it quite fondly.  I have memories of carving pumpkins with my sister on the kitchen floor and roasting pumpkin seeds.  I recall trick or treating in the village with the aroma of chimney smoke in the air, and a crispness in the air that only fall can bring to the mountains.   We would stop by all our friends’ houses to collect our candy and then make our way back to my house for the most exciting part of the night, dumping out the candy on the floor, counting and organizing all the candy we collected.

One tradition that I have still maintained today is carving pumpkins.  There is nothing like digging my hand into that slimy pumpkin and pulling out all of its guts.  It instantly brings me back to my childhood tradition and a place of comfort.  I absolutely love to roast pumpkin seeds, and of course eat them.  One year I ate 5 pumpkins worth of seeds in a matter of 24hrs.  Take it from me not a good idea, but that truly shows you my dedication to eating pumpkin seeds.

This year I picked out a pumpkin from the Tanaka Farms in Irvine, California.  I went with my wonderful neighbors Spencer and Kristin.  We had the best time.  We then spent the evening carving pumpkins, eating great food, and enjoying a delicious pumpkin pie made by Kristin.  This year  I chose quite a challenging pattern to carve.  It had lots of detail and about a quarter into carving it I was wondering what had gotten into me when choosing this Owl.  Either way enjoy my carving pics, there is also a picture of my sister and I dressed up and ready for Halloween:)))

Up Close and Personal

This past Monday was my 29th Birthday.  It was quite a big birthday not because of any special celebration or huge party, but because it was the last birthday being childless.  Yes, I said it discreetly, but to be more straightforward, Mircea and I are having a baby!

Funny enough, I spent my birthday at the doctor’s office getting a shot in the rear end.  But on a special note, I was able to see the baby’s heartbeat through an ultrasound.  It had probably started beating two days or fewer before I went in.  It was definitely a birthday gift to remember, and it was an emotional moment, which I had not felt up to that point.

I am seven weeks, one day and counting.  I am very excited about this new little being, but that is only one of the many complex emotions that I have been feeling over the last few weeks.  The truth is being pregnant has come with its share of worry and fear, and of course not to mention the coming and going of morning sickness.  My body is definitely changing and I feel like I have been taken over by some alien.  I have realized that I am no longer in control and the only way to gain control is by letting go and allowing the process to do what it needs to do.

My 28th year has truly been the most significant year of my life, marriage, Romania for a month, Mircea starting Graduate School, and now a bun baking in the oven.  My hope is that I get through this first trimester with the baby intact and that by the second trimester I don’t have to be nauseous any more.  The fist photo was taken somewhere around 4 and 1/2 weeks and the second photo was taken at 6 weeks and 2 days (my birthday).  Not much to see, but it’s confirmed there is something in there.

Romania Revisited

Romania - Storks - Lyndsey Renee Photography

In the month while we were in Romania, we were very busy.  Often times we were running from one place to another, visiting cities, visiting family, or visiting friends.  I tried to take as many pictures as I could, but never had the time to go through them very carefully.  This week I’d like to share a few pictures that I was not able to post while on our trip.

This past Saturday I was actually a guest at a wedding.  I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true.  I was so excited to attend Adam McNelly and Kerrie Taylor’s wedding.  It has been awhile since I have seen a wedding from the guests point of view.  My mom, sister and Mircea were all there, the wedding was on the UCLA campus, it was so beautiful.   (more…)

Romania, the Countryside

Romania - Lyndsey Renee Photography

During our trip in Romania we went to the countryside to visit Mircea’s family.  The life in these small villages is a lot slower, with sheep herds grazing on the hills and in the evening the cows come roaming home, with their bells slowly clinging.  There are usually older people out in front of their homes, talking and enjoying the coolness of the evening.  But there are younger people there too, usually on summer vacation at their grandparents houses, enjoying being out of the city.
