Just Mommy & Me | San Antonio Maternity Photographer

Oh me, oh my. Sometimes…an image just moves me. Can you feel the love?

Nicole is one my my dearest friends here. You may remember her from this shoot. She is one of the most capable women I know. I tend to surround myself with women who just make it happen. I enjoy self-sufficient, non-complainers. Because I am one. & so is she. Before this shoot…she mowed, pulled weeds, edged, blew leaves, cooked, cleaned & took care of this precious girl. Why? Because her husband is in Afghanistan. & he has been since she was in her first trimester. When will he return? When her new baby boy is 8 weeks old. That’s right. There is a very special place in heaven for women who give birth while their husband fights a war. Especially those women who also have a two year old. It ain’t easy. But somehow, she’s positive. & such an inspiration.

I’ll be there for her labor & delivery. & I’ll have my camera. I think there is a very lucky baby boy in there. Lots ‘o love in this family.

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
