An update on Pyper real quick, (and the Bedwell family of course) she's weaning off the oxygen, and they moved the family into a room together. I am so happy to hear this, as well as Wesley getting extra time with his family! Keep the prayers and happy vibed thoughts coming, roll them this way and that way, they need them! Pyper is getting stronger, and they're so excited to finally get to bring her home (hopefully sooner than anticipated).
It's no secret that my pages have been going crazy recently, and with that my phone is also going insane. It's such a blessing for TLP to be getting this publicity, I've been pushing my business through the walls of society's limits this year and was hoping for a break-through to get my name out there. I'm SO excited for this journey. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me for this unique story.
With that being said, I'm sorry to anyone I have been ghosting recently. I've been putting my clientele first, but I find myself getting phone-calls or emails from media productions asking questions or needing more information, and I do my best to forward the info to who needs it, but I am more than just a photographer. The phone rings, and I'm pulling my daughter's hair into a ponytail while singing our ABC's. The phone rings, and I'm rushing us out the door to get my son from school. The phone rings, and I'm packing my bag to get ready for a session. The phone rings, and I'm on the phone with my mom who wants to check in on her grandchildren. The phone rings, and rings, and rings, and honestly I'm terrible at talking on the phone as it is, hah! So here I am, candid and open saying I'm sorry to those I've ghosted or screened calls. I hope you get the information you need to, I've been doing really well with e-mails, and calling back when I realize the numbers calling aren't spam. TraciLynnPhotog@gmail.com SEND AN EMAIL! I promise I'm not a bad person, I'm just a busy mom on top of a single person ran small town business that's striving in the community. A picture of my littles below this, just so you see their cute faces that work distracts me from.
Some of the places the story has been featured:
Inside Edition, Hello Giggles, A Plus, Southern Living, Fox Digital Platforms, KLTV Tyler, Vanity Fair - Italy, Tabi Labo (Japan), Baby Center, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, Beauty News, Cosmopolitan, The Monitor (local news), Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, The TODAY show, Daily News, Cafe Mom, Womanista, PopSugar, Love What Matters, CBS... AND MORE! I can't believe how far it's went. I've been contacted by places all over for it, and then the shares by Ashton Kutcher, George Takei, Zoe Deschanel, and multiple news anchors, radio stations, it's just a dream that I'm living in. One day it will actually hit me and I'll probably pass out from the shock, but right now it just feels like some sort of dream I'm living in.
I'll update the blog later with birth story pictures, and then eventually (hopefully before Wesley leaves) we are going to do the newborn session, as soon as Pyper is out of the hospital.
Remember to pray, and remember to thank someone that has served, or is currently serving, our country. We need more positivity in this world! Pass the love on!
