After I did Landis & Stacey's wedding and before I went on maternity leave I shot 4 more!

Jordan & Matt
And Kelsey & DaveOnce I went on maternity leave I focused on getting myself ready for a baby! We purchased and moved into our first home in June, so not only did I have a nursery to get ready, but I also had a whole house to organize! I want to take this moment to thank my family for all their hard work helping us move, unpack, and prepare us for the biggest day of our lives! I don't think I would have survived the past few months if it weren't for y'all!!
What was the first thing this mommy did after having a baby (besides eating sushi)? Took his picture :) well I orchestrated the pictures but my good friend, Erin actually pressed the button (and SO much more!!)
She also did my maternity photos! :) I referred to the baby as my "peanut" :)This is one of my favs!
Check out more of her work here and here and show her some love! Thank you again, Erin, for capturing such special moments of my life!
Here are a few I've taken...Once maternity leave was over I had a bridal session, two engagement sessions, two weddings, and some fall minis to dominate!

All proceeds benefited the Children's Advocacy Centers of Mississippi. It was the first year but a great success none the less! I had a wonderful time and look forward to doing it again this year (that sounds so weird)! Here is our family picture with Santa.
OH! And I can't forget that I finally launched my website!!! Studio MJW is now live and I am so proud of how it turned out! Check it out and leave me a message through the contact section and let me know what you think! And if you're interested let's set up a session!!
WOW! Posting this blog update made me realize just how busy I was after my maternity leave and on top of the holidays too! Whew! Glad I survived my first holiday season working Studio MJW full time. I know I'll be doing a few things differently this year and I'm going to plan out the next pregnancy a little better... ;) if that is even possible...
I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and happy new year! and I hope your 2011 was as awesome as mine! Here's to 2012 and making it count! I know it's going to be a good one :)
