A personal Post | Monica Roberts Photography

So, I’ve been sitting on this blog post for a while now.. not really sure how to write what I want to say. BTW- I’m kind of a horrible blog writer…lol;)

A couple of months ago I found out a family member was on Dialysis and needed a Kidney.  He had been on Dialysis for quite some time.. which means hooking up to a machine for 9/10 hours a day. As you can imagine, you kind of have no life when you are on Dialysis. Working full time.. travel time to and from work…he had to be home by a certain time to make sure he was hooked up so he could be unhooked by a certain time the next morning. THAT broke my heart! My immediate response was… lets see if we are a match! I want to donate one of my kidneys..I want to be a Kidney Donor! I did loads of research on this… became of member of several different groups from Donors and Recipients. I got tons of information and asked loads of questions. After a few trips back and forth to Florida for lab tests, exams, meetings… we were given the final GO! We’re a match! I am 100% health and EVERYTHING they look for in a match was perfect! We were given the surgery date of August 8th:)Yes, In between ALL my weddings! I did a lot of praying that everything would work out perfect..and it did! The surgery went perfect… the kidney was working at 100% with zero complication. My wonderful Uncle got his life back!

It took me a couple of weeks to recover.. the first week was the hardest… from there things just got better and better. I’m still a bit sore… but nothing I cannot manage. I kept this a secret from most people because I didn’t want anyone to worry.. especially since I had a wedding on August 23rd:)I photographed the wedding with ease (and Tylenol) and everything went perfectly! I cannot wait to share the images from my August wedding:)

I can’t even put into words how much this surgery has changed me. I value myself and my family so much more! I see life so much more different and I LOVE it! This experience has changed me forever and I am forever grateful! My hear is full and this is probably the most proud of myself I have ever been in my life! Seeing someone get their life back because of you.. is priceless. I know I not only have my to my uncle.. but also to the person that would have gotten my uncles Kidney. To save/gave life back…it such an amazing feeling. A feeling I can’t even put into words.

If anyone has any questions for me about this experience..please feel free to send me an email: info@monicarphotography.com

Lindsay and Rudy are Married!!

{wedding photographers in san antonio}

First, let me tell you…. I lovelovelove this couple!! Lindsay and Rudy are such a sweet and fun couple! Lindsay is outgoing and Rudy is more on the quite side…they’re the perfect mix! I had so much fun photographing their June 2014 wedding! Rudy and Lindsay were married at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church and the reception was held at UTSA Ballroom. Their wedding was filled with lots of love, laughter, dancing and some Mariachi’s! And let me add…this former Oklahoma State Cheerleader even did some stunts at her reception! I guess this is what happens when you are a cheerleader and invite members from your cheer squad to your wedding :) 

Here a few images from the super fun wedding…. <3
