35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

The Ashmores Blog has some BIG news!

Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to play school in my bedroom. I had a chalkboard, overhead projector, worksheets, and animals as my students.   I was so excited when that dream became a reality in August of 2010! I landed my first teaching job at an amazing private school. There was only one problem. I had an 8 month old and would need to leave him in the care of someone else.…

My Rainbow baby Maternity shoot.

A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…

Dear strong willed child..

A big thank you to The Hair Bow Company for sponsoring this post!! When Oakland was born he was the sweetest little boy. He was so gentle, obedient, cuddly, and would literally do whatever he was told. Fast forward to Ainsley. This little girl is wild, stubborn, hard-headed, and hates not getting her way. On the other hand she has the biggest heart for family and friends, she is so sweet, so personable, and really loves life! She has given…
