A rather lousy weekend was redeemed by photographing a homebirth Saturday afternoon and doing a Superhero Project session Saturday night. Honestly, photography energizes and inspires me in so many ways. Dealing with insurance and sick kids and preparing two to spend the summer overseas (Judah and Tilly leave FRIDAY!), homeschooing and public schooling. It all came to a head Friday afternoon when my eleven year old son was crying in pain from his broken foot, I was dealing with ridiculous insurance policies and the woman at the x-ray clinic told me they “didn’t have any wheelchairs today“. At this point Mordecai had been hopping with a broken foot for hours (between it happening at school, us coming home, taking him to the doctor, then to the x-ray clinic). So I picked up my 86 pound son and carried him in my arms. I got some strange looks, to be sure, but it was just ridiculous. Mordecai has been in pain on and off all weekend. He’s doing the normal things: ice, elevation, ibuprofen and also has pain killers for when it gets really bad. He has to go see our regular doctor this week and depending on how it heals, may need to see an orthopedic surgeon.
But Saturday afternoon, I got the call that Kingstyn was on his way! I only have a few images from his birth edited, but will share more when I’m done.
And than Saturday evening I got to photograph Cody Bear for my Superhero Project series. I was actually originally supposed to photograph him Friday night, but had to cancel because of Mordecai’s broken foot.
And seriously, photographing these two boys made everything better. I still have to deal with insurance companies and health issues, but my day was made so much brighter by these two.

Tomorrow I will share with you a post of a few of my favorite things, including the awesome food storage bins we use for our refrigerator. I finally found them online!
Have a great Monday.
