She is full of life, she is wild and free. I say this of Brigette's oldest darling: Muriel. She is spunky, fun, obviously adorable and has been gifted with a contagious smile that takes over her whole face ... and every persons face around her actually. It was a joy getting to photograph her, her mama and her baby brother. 

Pippin, is in for a fun childhood with Muriel which has in no doubt already began. His curious and alert blue eyes watched her as she ran, jumped and giggled the entire time I was with them.

When I met Brigette and started talking with her, it was easy to make the connection of where Muriel's strong, fun and ambitious little personality comes from. Brigette is currently working as a chemical dependency counselor, has already attained her degree in Psychology and is currently enrolled to finish her degree in Sociology. Once she finishes her Sociology degree in the Fall, she will be ready for Grad School! She's doing all of this while being a wife and Mama to her two precious littles. Can you say superwoman over and over again?!

This season has in no doubt brought a new sweet rhythm to Brigette and her husbands' household and I am so very inspired by her (them).  The fact that she can keep a smile on her sweet babies' faces, while working hard chasing the callings on her life and keeping an authentic character both in person and through her photos + writing just blows me away. We even get to keep up with her journey through her blog: www.myalabasterheart.com ( what a clever alabaster reference right?! ) YES! Be sure to check it out! I can't wait to see her step into her Grad school life and the future after that!

MAMA STYLE

I can easily say that Courtney is an amazingly strong and inspiring woman. Ever since I met her I respected her discipline and focus, the force and passion that she pursues and fights for what she sets out to do and for change to happen. Always balancing and taking time from her post as a voice for change with adventure, travel and being a great mom + example for her two daughters who without a doubt will follow in her footsteps in some way.

She has such a fire within her that it would be almost impossible not be influenced by her even a little. Courtney also has quite the resume! She has a photography background, is getting her Masters in International Community Development at Northwest University and is the Digital Communications Officer at the Non - profit organization:  Preemptive Love Coalition at the moment. Preemptive Love Coalition "brings relief to families fleeing war in Syria and Iraq, and they empower refugees to rebuild their lives." Make sure to check them out!

Courtney also put together Redefining WE: A Peacemaking Photography Experience for Muslim and Christian Women which she writes more in depth about HERE, I had the absolute honor of being one of the 17 photographers that got to take one of the photos. This project has seriously impacted my life in such a great way! She does all of this amongst SO MUCH more, and she also walked in the Women's march in January with her family (one of the many causes she supports). I could go on and on writing about this strong, beautiful woman with great style! So that YOU don't miss out, be sure to follow her to keep up with all of the great work that she's doing and is involved with.

MAMA STYLE

Little Florence is going places! She has such a never ending curiosity and is not afraid to say what she wants or what she's thinking, even at the young age of 2 years old. She has the most darling matter-of fact tiny little voice that just makes your face and heart smile when you hear her talk.

Lauren is so patient, loving, educating and always has an answer and/or explanation ready for all of the things Florence wants to know more about. As you spend time with them you realize it's similar to watching a graceful little dance where Florence takes one step and Lauren is right there to land the second step with her. We can already tell that Florence is going to be SUCH a great big sis to baby on the way!

Just like Lauren and her husband take the time day in and day out to teach Florence everything her beautiful heart desires to know, we have no doubt that she'll do the same for her baby sister! This stylish Mama is definitely kicking Motherhood's butt and looks SO great doing it!
