Meet Macklin

Meet Macklin



Don’t you just want to smile when you see this sweet little face? Meet Macklin David Sims, born on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 12:31 p.m. weighing in at 8 lbs 9 oz. 20.5 inches long and lots and lots of hair. He is a laid back little dude that sleeps through the dogs barking like crazy, the husband screaming over hockey and just about everything else. I’m so blessed to welcome another man in the Sims household. 

Many bloggers share their birth stories for everyone to read but I’m going to keep that story between my Husband and I and close family/friends. It was a special experience and the birth of any child is truly a miracle. 

Today marks Macklin being with us for one month and boy has this boy grown. At his 3 week check up he was already weighing in at 10 lbs 4 oz….I’m sure he will be taking after his Daddy. 

Like our maternity photos (which you can view here) Candice was able to capture some newborn photos when Macklin was exactly one week old.

We didn’t even plan the dogs coming in to some of the pictures but they sure do love their little brother.

Simply the Sims: Maternity Photos

A few weeks back I shared with you Where to Start as far as planning for and finding a maternity photographer, I then shared how to prep for that photoshoot as well. I’m happy to say that we have completed our maternity photo session and since then have received the photos back from our amazing photographer and I already had prints made which have already been placed in frames throughout out home and in Baby Sims nursery.

So how did it go? The shoot went great and we were lucky enough to have great lighting for a cold February day. My photographer, Candice is part of the husband and wife team of Lamarand Style Photography. You should really check out their website by clicking here and visiting their Facebook page by clicking here. Candice was a pleasure to work with and she was super laid back and chill. She made sure that we were comfortable and spent some time with Hank and Vinny too. She was very patient while working with the dogs, especially Hank who just wanted to give her a bunch of kisses. Candice also made sure that we got the type of pictures we wanted and was more than great at making sure the angle was good for us and that we didn’t look too crazy.

I’ll share some of my favorites with you all.

Please do not alter these photos in anyway and all photo credit goes to Candice with

Pregnancy Style: Blush

Pssssst! If you missed my Pregnancy Style: Grey + Stripes post you can find it by clicking here. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to be up to date on all my blog posts. I’m really loving the blush color in fashion and even in home decor. What do I love about it? Well for one I believe a beautiful blush color will really go great with all skin types and hair colors. You can wear it all year round whether it’s hot in the summer or cold winters. Depending on how you style it I feel this color can feel warm or cool at the same time. I simply love it.
