I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir.
MY face is on the blog….AHHHH!!! I got in front of someone else’s camera. Sarah Peterson Photography hooked a girl (and family) up!!! I reached out to her wanting a mini maternity session and as nervous as I was to be in front of her lens, I’m so glad I leaped because LOOK AT THESE!!! The day was windy AF but I truly couldn’t have been happier how these turned out. We were right outside of Paxton on Route 9 on a private property that looked gorgeous despite it being winter. I will say the sunset cooperated with us and we had that perfect golden hour sunset that I wanted. Thank you SO MUCH Sarah, these are so special to me!!
I’ll be honest, this pregnancy started out a little rough. I was so anxious, nervous and on edge every day and every doctors appointment. I felt like I couldn’t be happy, which sucked, I felt loss still from our prior pregnancy. But as time has went on our wounds have healed a little and we are beyond excited to welcome our rainbow baby. For now, I am feeling so good yet anxious for delivery because I know what it is like 🤪
Big sister Bex is elated with excitement and anticipation as we close in on the last few weeks of this pregnancy. I’m not kidding when I say she will be the BEST big sister and will ALWAYS be wanting to help and pitch in!! She has been looking forward to this moment forever it feels like so we are so excited for her to meet him/her. Speaking of gender, the entire Magers household is TEAM BOY!! I want to know, what do you think?! Pink or blue!?
Once the babe is here I am taking an actual maternity leave!!! I am off all of February with a slow transition back to work in March with limited sessions. Mind you those are pretty much already booked, but did want to give a heads up. I wanted to be sure to take some time off to enjoy with my new babe and Bexley before going back in full swing. So please be patient with me once I have the baby and with my transition back. .
I look forward to the rest of 2021 and cannot wait to show off Magers Baby #2 very soon!
