a little announcement…

I haven’t been updating here as much recently because 1. I have been quite busy with weddings and 2. my family and I have been soaking in some good news. We are expecting baby #2!! We are very excited and feel very blessed. We wanted our kids to be close in age and I was crossing my fingers that I wouldn’t be pregnant during wedding season and I couldn’t be more thankful! So to answer some questions…. was this a huge surprise and shock? Nope, not really! :) Will I still be photographing weddings and sessions? Yes! I have been photographing weddings since I’ve been pregnant and everything has gone great. (I will not be photographing weddings during the last couple couple of months of pregnancy at the beginning of next year, however. ) Wow, but you are so young? ;) Yes, and we married young. So far we’ve kind of gone against the grain. God has His perfect timing and plan for everyone!


Thank you everyone for your love and support! We are so excited! xo!



Yay, sweet momma! So excited for you! How far along are you? Can’t wait to see that cute bump grow!

Congratulations to a beautiful family! God’s timing is always perfect :)

Oh, Congratulations! I am so happy for your family! :)

I literally gasped and smiled when I saw this news on Facebook! Congratulations, Jay and Arielle! Little Leland will be a wonderful older brother. :)

Praise God! This is great news. Congrats to you both.


Congrats on baby number 2! How exciting. :)

Congrats!!!! So happy to see you expanding the kingdom of God!! Such a blessing, can’t wait to see the next part of your journey!


Is it weird I knew this was coming?? I don’t know why but I was thinking a lot of about it and you lately. …any hoo sooo excited for you and your family!! I think this is an exciting and wonderful blessing and I say if you can have them young..why not, right? you already have 1, why not have 2+ while young!

Congratulations!! I hope you’ve been feeling decent if not well. :)

Congratulations, Arielle! So happy for you. I am just expecting my first, but I get “oh you are so young” all the time too. I don’t know why people make such a big deal out of it sometimes! :-) you have a lovely family and from what I read about you here on your blog you seem like an amazing mom, and someone I hope to be like someday!! :-) God bless you and may you have a wonderful and healthy pregnancy! :-)

such happy news! i feel like a friend just told me she was expecting :D congrats you two <3


Congrats Arielle,

That is so awesome! I hope this next season is a huge blessing for you and your family! You are a very inspiring young woman.

Be blessed!

Amazing! So many congratulations to you. It’s nice to know that there are other young wives and mothers like me around; and also not so many years ago we would have been the ‘normal’ people whilst others would have gone against the grain!
Love to you all and praying that all goes well for you. xx

Congrats!! What exciting news!

Congratulations! What a wonderful blessing! I’m due in November, and my boys will be exactly a year apart (or less!) I know the first few years will be a bit hectic, but after that I think it will be so much fun to have two so close :) Praying for a healthy pregnancy for you!
