Pinterest projects. Some are great and some are fails, right? I found several pins for a DIY wood backdrop, but somehow still managed to completely ruin it and had to throw them all out. It was quite sad. So… even though I didn’t intend on making my own post on this, I would really hate to see […]

Holy cow. My little Lyla Grace is already one month old. This past month was packed with more exhilaration, stress and hormones than I think the whole past year combined. I could probably write a book on just the hospital experience alone and how wonderful it was– from the nurses to Lyla to my awesome supporting husband. […]

Ever since I found out we were pregnant with Lyla, I started planning her newborn session! This entire pregnancy was different than when I had Matthew. Six and a half years ago I hadn’t quite kicked off my business yet, and actually had the hospital photographers come in and do Matthew’s session (!) But this time, I knew I […]

I have waited for this for a long time. Waited to get pregnant for a year, waited to have a little girl and waited to DECORATE THE NURSERY! Having a girl, I was given free reign on this part! I started buying things for her room the day after I found out I was pregnant. But […]

Well, I have to admit this is a little weird posting pictures of myself but I wanted to give you all a peak at my own maternity session and experience! Ever since we found out we were pregnant, I started planning my maternity session. I didn’t get the chance to do anything like this with Matthew, so […]

I have decided to officially change the business name from Sweetpea Photography to Cynthia Whiteside.   Ever since Mandi Mitchell, a wedding and family photographer in Georgia, urged me months ago to change the business name to my own name, it has been on my mind. I even put out a survey if you remember on Facebook asking about the […]

So hopefully you have seen by now that we moved! This was a big exciting change that I had been anticipating for months. I was feeling claustrophobic, my props were overflowing and the store I was in (2nd 2 None) also needed the space. It was a bittersweet goodbye but all for the better. When […]

This past weekend I had the wonderful experience of having a booth for the first time at the Wichita Bridal Expo! I have been to many bridal shows before, helping my mom with her business 2nd 2 None Consignment, so I had a good idea of how it worked going in. But this was the first time […]

So it’s time to share some about the girl on the other side of the lens! Here are 10 things you may or may not know about me! (By the way, if anyone ever asks you to do this, be prepared to just feel like you are bragging the whole time. It’s kind of hard!) That […]

Last month, my husband and I decided to boycott shopping for the month of July. The only things we could buy were groceries, gas or important necessities that came up; so I couldn’t buy clothes or shoes for Matthew or I (my downfall) and Brandon couldn’t buy any electronics or movies (his downfall). Why? We realized that we […]
