Personal Update - Columbus, Ohio - Wedding Photographer - Savannah Ward Photography
I told myself I would blog blog blog, and WOW I went a whole year without doing it! I am determined to keep up with blogging this year and to utilize it and talk about not only the beautiful weddings I shoot, but all of the things going on in my life! I feel like blogging is such an amazing way to really get myself out there for everyone to see who I am and what I do as a photographer.
So what have I been doing for an entire year? Well for the last half of 2014 I was shooting weddings what felt like non stop! It's so much work but honestly I am so in love. Every couple I met, I adored. Each with their own special story about how they met, how they came to be in love and their dreams of Happily Ever After!
I also GOT PREGNANT! In August 2014. :) Yes, I FINALLY conceived my newest little addition and after 2 miscarriages prior, My husband, Zachary and I had our little Noah Zachary Ward in April 2015. Wow this was the hardest prengancy yet. (I've only had one other successful pregnancy with my oldest son, Jack James Ryan). Talk about nausea! I was constantly sick, and I mean it didn't even let up at the 2nd trimester! It was all worth it. Because on April 17th this year, I went into labor, didn't even know it, but I did! Haha!
And at 7:13 am, my 8 lb 5.6 oz bundle of LOVE was born!
Our joy lasted for a few hours before we found out our son's lungs were underdeveloped. He was transported to Children's Hospital where we stayed by him 24/7 as he fought, healed and grew stronger for about 2 weeks. It was the hardest 2 weeks of my entire life. Not only watching my newest baby struggle to breathe on his own, but to be away from my 3 year old who had no idea why Mommy and Daddy were all of a sudden not home anymore while he stayed with his grandparents.
Since coming home, Noah has DOUBLED his weight and now at 2 1/2 months old, is a 16 lb 8 oz chunky monkey! He is so very healthy and his big brother absolutely ADORES him in every way! I am so proud to have these two adorable baby boys to call my own. They are my heart. My husband and I couldn't be more blessed, honestly.

After having Noah, and about 1 month of postpartum leave, I jumped back into work! Starting off with a beautiful wedding at the Makoy Center in Hilliard, Oh! I will be blogging their gorgeous wedding day next.
The next wedding was in Groveport, Ohio at the Old Blue Rooster venue. It was rainy, but it was PERFECTION! And I am so excited to get their gallery to them and blog their wedding day as well!
I have a wedding coming up next weekend in Hamilton, Ohio at Lake Lyndsay Lodge! I haven't been to this venue before so I am super excited to scope it out and let all of you know just how great it is!
Well, since I have officially finished off my entire cup of coffee while blogging this - I think I will go pour my second cup and snuggle my Noah bear.
