Emily Corey Photography bio picture
  • hey there! my name is emily and this is my little blog. i am a professional photographer and i love capturing families. although i find myself updating this blog less and less (thanks to instagram!) i do occasionally use this space for personal updates. my photography portfolio and website can be viewed here. feel free to email me with any questions you might have! emilycorey@gmail.com

i have always been an early bird. lee says my eyes open like a robot in the morning. open and im up and going 100 miles an hour. but the first few weeks of this pregnancy were different. i was waking up even earlier  (4am kind of early) but laying in bed for hours still as can be. i prayed like i never have before and kept my hand on my tummy. i asked to be able to handle whatever happened.  i think after so many years of trying i felt like i shouldn’t even be asking for more then that. so i prayed for strength over and over. no matter what let me be strong.

the day that i found out i was pregnant-two blue lines. i cannot possibly explain what if feels like to see two lines after so many failed test. over nine years of negative test. then two blue lines. i went in for a blood test hours later. the nurse called back and said everything looked good. i asked her if she could just tell me what i wanted to hear. she laughed and said ‘you are pregnant mam!’

i was really nervous the first few weeks. i basically laid still in bed not moving. it did not feel real. i was borderline miserable i was so scared. and then we saw the heartbeat. a little white dot flashing. the next time we actually heard the heartbeat. that was when i lost it. tears. my mind racing over everything it took to get to this point..all leading up to this perfect sound. the tiny little baby in my tummy with a heart thumping. its a miracle. i am so grateful we never gave up.

i have the weeks leading up to baby all in my calender. and my summer is packed.  shooting wedding, lots of travel, photographing families, camps for lu, beach, dunwoody. it will literally be november before i blink. and how perfect is the timing? from december until the flowers start to bloom again i will be hibernating with my family. the four of us. plus all of the animals (anyone want a fish or small dog? free to good home:)  lloyd is not for sale-so dont ask!)

im excited to document the entire journey. just like i did for lulu. thanks for all of the sweet comments. it has been so much fun to share. and i know i shared WAY to early, but im 11 weeks now. one week until first trimester is DONE! seriously, im so happy.

I do not know how your second baby is going to compete w your first. Lulu is hilarious. Just watched that video twice..love how she’s so sure of her interpretation of things, regardless of your hesitation. Good luck w that small 180 pound bebe. I have a child crush on Lulu.
