Baby Smith

Holy smokes. I can't believe I'm writing this blog post. 

That's right, Perry and I are officially pregnant with our first child!

To say that the last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind would be an understatement. Nothing has changed our lives more than the realization that we are about to become parents. What!! Perry has been talking to the baby inside my belly ever since we saw that positive pregnancy test and his love for it is already making my heart melt on the daily. He’s also been driving around late at night to pick up any dinner that actually sounds good to me. Spaghetti, five guys french fries or chocolate cub foods donuts. 

Morning sickness is for real... but it’s literally morning, noon and night (WHY) and the fatigue is starting to get reallyyyy old. But every time we go to the doctors office & hear that little heartbeat I’m reminded that this is one of the greatest privileges we will carry in our lifetime. To raise little humans who will learn to laugh, lead & love on their own. We truly feel like God brought this baby into our life at the perfect time & wow I am beginning to sound more cheesy than ever before. 

Anyways, we are so flipping excited to let the news out. I swear, EVERYONE has been asking us about babies lately. So... here goes nothing. Cheers to next adventure

Some Major Life Changes

Hello Smith & Riah friends! 

I've been quite absent from every social media outlet as of late, so I thought it'd be time to send you all a little life update! 

The last few weeks have been absolutely insane. Between putting our house on the market, struggling through my first trimester, pulling our house off the market and then falling in love with a new home... we're completely exhausted. Nothing says happy holidays more than a schedule that is just completely packed with christmas parties, mortgage documents and home inspections. Am I right?


Behind the craziness though, this is absolutely one the most exciting times in Perry and I's lives. We're moving into our dream home on January 21st (currently living with my mom and dad!) and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our little baby. I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant and almost done with the first trimester. Praises! As far as our current home goes, we decided to rent it out to an awesome group of girlfriends instead of selling. It's always been a dream of Perry and I's to own a couple of investment properties. I guess this little baby has gently nudged us into that! 


As far as Smith & Riah goes, I've felt quite absent from my YouTube channel as of late. Being pregnant, exhausted and plagued with every food aversion possible, the last thing I've wanted to do is shove a camera in my own face. It does make me a bit sad though since Smith & Riah is one of my favorite hobbies. I'm hoping to get back into it during my second trimester... fingers crossed!

One fun little project I have been able to work on for Smith & Riah is my first collection of video presets! This is something I've been wanted to do for the last couple of years and I'm so excited to finally release the project to you guys. You can access my presets via my homepage if you are interested in seeing them. I'm hoping to create more content in the future that is centered around what I do professionally as a post-production video editor. This is truly my passion and I'm realizing I that I don't talk about it nearly as much as I'd like to. I would love to help educate other people who are interested in growing in the same field! 

So, that's my long-winded life update for you guys. I'm excited to keep you in the loop as we continue to experience so many changes over the next couple of months. Hope you all have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
