Getting the Call

Working with one of your best friends is awesome. Working with one of your best friends, who just happens to be a professional photoghaper, is even more awesome.

Why? Because when you recieve a call from your birth mother, telling you she's being induced in 12 hours, a best friend/photographer instinctively picks up a camera and shoots this absolutely cray moment.


The convo went something like this;

Birth Mother: Hey Megan! I'm gonna be induced tomorrow morning.
Me: WHAT?! Who is this?




My mind was racing. Just trying to write down all the information she was giving me (addresses and whatnot) was a challenge.


When I realized Paige was taking pictures, I tried to ham it up for her. It was hard because I'm usually pretty obnoxious shy, but I did my best.



Here I am with my co-worker Wanda, the sweetest, funniest person I ever met. I think she was  even more emotional than I was. Wanda, you sap!!!!


And that concludes the "getting the call" photo shoot. Thank you, thank you, thank you Paige! This makes all our outfit shoots together seem frivolous, no? (Though not frivilous enought that we can't plug a few here and here. Hey- Oh!)

P.S. I just realized "getting the call" is the phrase nuns use when explaing their choice of work. I find this amusing just because I think I'd be the worst nun ever, in the history of all nuns. (Unless of course it was a nun in the movie, Sister Act, in which case I'd be fantastic.)

  2. This will be such a great moment you'll be able to share with Macy one day! I recently discovered who my birth mother was after 27 years and felt an immense comfort being able to thank her for her choice, I also get the benefits of having 3 half sisters now that I never had to fight over a bathroom with :)

  5. Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established website like
    yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to running
    a blog however I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
