Mariel Monthly: June 2021

July 1, 2021

June has been very busy and started with announcing our pregnancy. The overwhelming support really blew me away and it means so much. After all the struggle we've had with maintaining a pregnancy this hormonal gal sure did cry so many happy tears! I've gotten some gifts and been having some cravings as well. I did have a bout of poison ivy or oak or something on my legs. It was pretty unbearable with the itching and scratching but I survived with some oatmeal soap and alcohol on the effected areas to dry it up!

Wedding season was also in full effect so a lot of my energy has been put towards sessions and celebrating with the best clients! Two of my brides gave me baby gifts already and it was such a surprise (especially on their big days)! My sister's birthday was on June 2nd and my father's on June 22nd so we celebrated extra on Memorial Day and Father's Day! I didn't do anything special for Michael but next year will be his official first father's day.

I got to spend some Fridays with my niece and nephew since school's been out, swimming and living that auntie life! The header image is older but it's a summer vibe for sure. The end of the month we got a major heat wave and I stayed inside with the A/C as much as possible. My mother, sister and aunt travelled up to Boston to celebrate my cousin's new baby girl, Annie. It is such a celebratory time for our family!

More About Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.
