guest post | ashley from stork & the beanstalk

Hey there, I'm Ashley and I write over on The Stork & The Beanstalk. I contacted Kate some time ago about doing a guest post over on my blog as I'm out recovering from some pretty major back surgery. Kate was kind enough to invite me to guest post here as well, so thank you, Kate, for having me on your lovely corner of the worldwide web.

Kate wrote a post a while back, prior to the birth of her beautiful Alba, about her fear of loving a second child. It was something that I related to so deeply to on so many levels as I had experienced the same fears. I am the mother of two boys; Hooper will be three in November and Van turned one in July.


Ready for a dose of honesty? It took me longer to love Van than it did Hooper. I was a bit surprised by it because everything I read, prior to giving birth, talked about how your love multiplies rather than divides and blah blah blah. It wasn’t like that for me; not right away, at least.

Sofia: a bit of an incident with a permanent marker Alba: the receiver of the best kisses of all time
happy october to all of you! we are slowly catching up with our portrait weeks around here- can you believe we are already on week 38?! also, you may notice things a bit wonky with the site for a while, so please pardon the dust as this space gets a bit of a fall make-under.
