Meet the new COO of LDP, Asher

Personal

He is small and sweet and social and so, so happy and I’m truly enamored in a way that I’ve never been before and didn’t quite expect.  I had Asher 6 months ago today after 9 months of heavy prepartum depression and a tiring labor.  Two weeks early, 17 hours of contractions, and an emergency c-section later (goodbye, birth plan!), I had a wiggly, tiny, bird-like baby weighing in at 6lbs 2oz.

For a while we called him Mr. Magoo because he was so wrinkly and weak.

And he rocked a sweet mullet!blog-DSC04305

Eventually he filled out with plump cheeks, a melon for a noggin, and a dusting of hair. blog-F00A8806

Possibly because I kept expectations quite low on the reality of life with an infant, he has been so much more engaging and fun than I ever imagined.  It is wild to watch him get bigger and become more able, interesting, and interested every single day.

He lights up when he sees his daddy and goes into giggle fits from silly noises.

I look at him often and wonder: who are you going to be?  Will you be kind?  Will you be a jerk?  Will you love the arts?  Will you be good with numbers?  Will you marry?  Who will it be?  Will you be tall like your daddy or short like your mommy?  Would you vote for Trump, Hillz, or Bernie?  Will you always have this perfect laugh?  Who are you?

I always thought wanting to eat the baby but just a phrase but it’s more than that.  I want to envelop him and even miss pregnancy and feeling those rowdy movements and endless hiccups.

You’ll be seeing more of Asher’s blue eyes and cleft chin as time goes on but, more importantly as far as the blog is concerned, you’ll be seeing more work.  The baby is in daycare now and I’ll be able to delve into business in a way I haven’t for quite some time.  2016 marks Lindsay Docherty Photography’s 10 year anniversary and it’s shaping up to be one of my best!

I feel extraordinarily lucky for my phenomenal husband, patient clients, supportive family, and my little nugget.  This upcoming year will be amazing as both this tiny human and my dear business grow.

Stay tuned for it all!

“When you hold your baby in your arms the first time, and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him, but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity.”
~ Rose Kennedy

Sadly, we did not get the same table that we had last year for our anniversary dinner last night.Fortunately, the food and conversation were just as good. Instead of grilling each other about everything under the moon like last time, we had a more pointed discussion: a wedding.I have an incredible fiancé and I’m currently wearing the most spectacular ring I’ve ever seen!

Mother’s Day in MD
I spent last weekend with my mom for mother's day and thought I'd share some pictures from my time there. She lives in historic little Berlin, Maryland which is right outside of Ocean City, MD.My mom has quite a green thumb and spends all of her free time in her glorious garden. She can tell you all about everything in there too. And it's this ever changing thing - she is constantly replanting this and that. She tells me it's already changed since I took these pics. Take a look…We went into OC for a day to check out Springfest and the boardwalk. I was a complete glutton, eating my way through boardwalk fries with vinegar, ice cream, and ...
