Our New Nephew and the Story of Embryo Adoption/Donation

Written by Mel McLellan

On Saint Patrick’s Day we welcomed our nephew into the world and his story is already a pretty incredible one.

You see, my brother and sister-in-law, Ryan and Cari, struggled with infertility for 2 years and during that time, found out that having children biologically wouldn’t be possible for them.

Despite the truth of that statement, here is my beautiful sister-in-law pregnant with their firstborn.


St. Patrick’s Day Celebration with Kids

Written by Mel McLellan

We’re big fans of Saint Patrick’s Day around here. It’s pretty much the only thing we have to hold onto as a cultural thing and we do our part to pay homage to our Irish roots when St. Paddy’s Day rolls around!

As we gear up for this year, I thought I’d share a little with you about what we did last year with our friends.

I got to photograph the sweetest little family the other day and I can’t wait to share their photos with you. Now that we’re officially done having babies of our own, I especially like getting to go snuggle someone else’s newborn for the afternoon. It’s the ultimate job perk. :)
