I first met Heidi through a Mineola, TX Mom’s group that my friend Cortney started (Cortney’s Fall family session is here). After talking with Heidi, we found out that we live only a few streets away from each other! Her daughter Aspen is four and gets along super well with my two girls. Her son Camden was just 7 months old when I met her, and she was 5 months pregnant with Mr. Blaine! Yep, you read that right! Heidi’s boys are 11 months apart!
Heidi and her Husband Justin are doing a wonderful job of raising their three children. Heidi is a strong and loving mamma, and a survivor of infant loss. She lost her first child, her son Haylon, at 22 weeks. Haylon blessed her with 2 1/2 hours of life, and I know she treasures those moments daily in her heart.
They moved to Mineola about 2 years ago from Beaumont, Tx for Justin’s job as an electrician on the pipeline. Wall space was an important factor when they were searching for a home. They needed a ton of it for their deer heads! They have about 7 whitetail and 2 mule deer heads, with numerous European-style mounts on their walls!
Hunting is (obviously) a BIG deal in their family, so when I asked her if there was anything special she wanted to incorporate in Blaine’s newborn session, there had to be some camo going on! She brought a camouflage blanket to his newborn session in addition to a sweet camo scarf.
Blaine was an amazing baby during his session for being just over 4 weeks old. He was a happy and sleepy little guy!
