Hemorrhoid Cream + Big Coffees

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Love my title???  lol  I laugh every time I think about the day I posted this photo.  Mostly because it's my every day these days.  And a lot of you wanted to know if the hemorrhoid cream really works. . .It does!!!  :)  And it has become a part of my skin care regime.  :)


Do y'all remember what got me into photography?  I suffered terrible postpartum depression after I had RyAnne.  When she was eight months old Trey bought me my very first DSLR camera.  I started seeing things differently and photographing her sweet little self made me so happy!  It pulled me right out of my depression and a new business and passion were born!

Well, of course, while I was pregnant with Olivia I was concerned that I might go back down the dark path of depression.  Last week I started feeling it again.  The panic attacks were starting to well up in my chest and the pain of wanting to stay in bed all day lingered over me.  I can't do this again!

I've been a lot more open with my friends and family this time around.  I want them to know how I'm feeling so they can help me snap out of it.  :)  It has really helped me to talk with them.  Also, I've decided to turn to the passion that brought happiness and life in such a yucky time in my life - photography!

My first wedding is April 5th.  I'm excited and nervous.  I can't wait to get back behind my camera and lose myself in the joy of a wedding but I'm not wanting to leave my sweet baby girl.  If I could strap her on my back and know that she wouldn't cry during the ceremony, I totally would bring her along.  After all she has been photographing weddings and sweet families with me since she was concieved.  :)

Spring has also gotten me feeling the itch to photograph all my sweet families!!!  My friend, Arlissa Jones, and I are teaming up again this Spring to offer super gorge mini sessions with fabulous backdrops and props.  These sessions will be held at my home in Social Circle and will include a lemonade stand and much, much more.  I am only offering five, 30 minute sessions.  If you would like one please be the first to message me at info@hollylrobbins.com.  The session fee is 20.00 and is due upon booking to hold your spot.  175.00 is due at your session to purchase all of your edited images.


Can't wait to see y'all!
Happy Hump Day!
Love.

A bump date + Lots of fun!

Tuesday, February 4, 2014


The past two days have been incredible.  I feel like a total rock star!  I mean two parties in two days filled with my most fave people in the world?!  I could get used to this!!!  :)


On Sunday my best friend's, Miriam + Deanna, hosted a diaper shower for me and Miss Olivia.  The decor was beautiful and the food scrumptious!


I even received my very first diaper cake thanks to my sweet neighbor, Georgia!  It's amazing what a relief it is to have so many diapers and wipes.  I wasn't quite sure I would make it to my shower before having Olivia.  Thankfully I did!






Oh good gracious!  I LOVE sweets like it's nobody's business!  The cupcakes are from Baby Cakes Bakery in Porterdale and the Petite Fours are from Publix.


Our delicious meal was catered by Mama Maria's in Covington.



Miriam + Deanna, you are awesome!  Thank you so much for doing this for me.  And thank you to all the ladies that came to my shower to celebrate my sweet baby girl!


The very next day, Monday the 3rd, was my birthday!  I am officially 31!  Trey, RyAnne and I started off the day with my 38 week check up.  My mid-wife confirmed that I am dilated and quite effaced!  This made my day because I know I will get to meet my daughter soon.  

The day was just too gorgeous not to snap a few baby bump photos.  :)  My belly is HUGE!  lol


I knew Trey had plans for us to go to dinner at Mystic Grill.  But what I didn't know is that he invited all my friends and family too!!!  OH!  And, he reserved the Door Room for our private party!!!  
Rock Star - Why Yes! I am!!!  :)


OMG!  Another fabulous dessert!  My mouth is watering just looking at this photo!  He knows my weakness for a Publix cake!  This one was the bomb!  Topped with cream cheese icing, on a vanilla cake, layered with raspberry filling!!!  I have one piece left in my refrigerator and I'm thinking it will serve as a very nice breakfast for this pregnant girl! :)


I sure do love this man!  And this photo!  Do you see how he is looking at me???  OH the love he has for me!!!  He's the best man I know and I'm super blessed our girls will have the best father in the world.


Thank y'all so much for making me feel incredibly special yesterday.  All of your birthday wishes were so wonderful.  I'm so blessed!

Happy Tuesday y'all!
Love.

Waylyn's Newborn Session

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Baby Waylyn

Isn't she just gorgeous?!  This little sweet pea came for her first photo shoot last Wednesday at only seven days old.  Quite awake at first she soon settled in and fell fast asleep allowing me to capture her smallness.






I love both the color and black and white!  So why not post them both!! :)





Waylyn's daddy is a musician.  He built this guitar out of pallets and metal.






An itty bitty little smile!



This sweet girl kept pointing her little toes like a ballerina.  So amazing!

Happy Wednesday!
Stay warm y'all!
Love.

Guess what day it is!!! Time for a 34 week Bump Date!!

Saturday, January 11, 2014

The nervous excitement is in full swing for me!  I am just six weeks away (give or take) from meeting my sweet girl, Olivia Reagan.  We have really started working on her room.  Putting up trim, painting will be next, installing a chandelier.  Believe it or not the list is coming to an end.  :)  Oh and I have most all of her newborn backdrops and props in!!!  Yay!

before trim

after - next will be paint! :)

I've been nesting like a little bird.  I feel like I'm on this insane mission to complete as many tasks as I can before she gets here.  It's my prenatal marathon. . .only in slow motion.  An old back injury has been flaring up and has had me down a bit so it takes me allllll day to accomplish these tasks.  But I'm so thankful they are getting done!  My mother-in-law helped me take down all of the Christmas decor and clean up the living room.  Almost every drawer (even my sock drawer) and closet has been reorganized.  Refrigerator is super squeaky clean.  I'm sure I will find something else to empty and reorganize before the end of this blog post.  lol


I went to my 34 week check up on Monday.  Olivia is head down and measuring perfect.  I mentioned to my mid-wife that I was starting to freak out a little bit about my decision for a natural child birth.  I know I have not ever experienced anything like this so I'm getting nervous.  She was like, "If you weren't I would be nervous!"  lol  She keeps encouraging me telling me I will do just fine.


RyAnne's birth was simple.  At my 40 week checkup I was told I was being induced that night.  My water broke the next day at the hospital.  They started my epidural and pitocin.  I pushed 15 minutes and voila!!!  Baby RyAnne was here.  I felt no pain until the epidural was gone.  And then it was super bad pain because of how my epidural was placed.  :(  I have to keep reminding myself that back in the day women didn't have the option of pain free.  They just did it.  I can do this!!!


I have been researching exercises I can do to strengthen up and prepare - Ballerina squats, pelvic tilts and pregnancy yoga. . .but all I really want to do is sleep.  But that's pretty much impossible with a 3.5 year old.  She keeps me busy!  I don't have much work happening this month.  I had a styled wedding shoot on schedule for a new venue and had to cancel due to my back pain.  This about killed me.  I very rarely ever cancel shoots.  :(  I just know at this point in my pregnancy a six to eight hour shoot would have done me in.




Cravings!
Anything sweet and still ice.  My teeth are getting hit really hard.  lol  Chomping on ice and wanting nothing but Oreos.  My dentist would flip out if he knew what I was doing to them!


I found this on Facebook.  I have no idea where it came from so I'm not able to share the credits.  How beautiful this image is!


Happy Saturday Bump Date!!
Love.
