Mariel Monthly | October 2021

October has been busy with work and baby prep! I managed to start the month with time at my favorite places in Old Wethersfield. Snagged some breakfast and photos while trying to update my license before my pregnancy starts showing in my face. Luckily the swelling has been in my feet mostly! The leaves and colors were starting to change slightly and the weather just heavenly and slightly cooler.

I had my shower for Aubrey Marie and felt so loved by everyone near and far. It was good to have best friends and close family offering their advice! The biggest take away was to sleep when you can and don't stress over little things - just enjoy enjoy enjoy! Time seems to have slowed considerably at least to me onceĀ I hit 30 weeks and at the end of this month I am 35! Just one month to go!

My niece Ava turned 12 this month and seeing her grow up has been such a whirlwind. How does time go fast and slow at once?! She is going to be a teen next year! She's always the tallest in class and a super basketball star - which makes me so proud.

Halloween was mild with a whopping 2 trick or treaters and lots of leftover candy! My costume was a shirt from Hocus Pocus that said "Winnie I smell a child!" I can't wait for next year dressing up our little girl!

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.
