Who has the extra time?!

Great title, huh? How many of you think this same exact thing every single day? I know I do. Blogging is what I have learned isn’t the top of my “to-do” list. Actually it might be the last. Even after dishes or clipping all 4 of my kiddie’s toenails. Yea- that low. I hate to say that because I know this is how so many of you keep up with me, my family and my beautiful clients…but gosh it is hard to sit down and organize my thoughts and photos into a post.

If you know me…well, or even have spoken to me before- you know I have some intense ADHD…aka I start talking about one thing and quickly mention a totally different subject mid-sentence. That’s how I feel about blogging too. I just want to write everything down all at once and press publish. DONE.

I start typing…then boom. A kid is pouring water down my leg and into my purse. I start typing again. Deadly screams begin. I go save the child’s life that was in danger. I start typing again. Shoot…I forgot to email the 57 people back that I promised I would. Email everyone. I start typing again. Where was I? Hmmm… I’m hungry, maybe I should start my blogging tonight. Oh wait…let me finish up editing everyone’s images first. THEN I will blog. ok.

This happens way too often for me. So today I have 5 more minutes of peace and quiet to get my crazy wild world written down and shared to all you fun people. Not to mention, I’ve been photographing STUNNINGLY, beautiful families that I need to share too!

Life is never boring. Never calm either. But I wouldn’t trade it for anyone else’s life. Spring is coming and I cannot even wait- mini sessions are pretty much booked up but I have a couple of full sessions left until summer! I am so excited about all the new mamas to be that I am meeting and capturing. Soon my days will be filled with lots of those new babies too. Bring on the fresh air and sunshine. Tulips and peonies. bliss. I am ready to be outside all day long everyday. 🙂

Thanks for sticking around to be a part of our crazy world. Life is so good with you in it. ❤

enjoy the chaotic catch up!!

The Walsh Family

Lincolnton, NC   {family & child photography}

 

After months and months of trying to get our schedules to match up, I FINALLY got the precious Walsh family in front of my camera! Leslie and I had been back and forth way too many times to count, she deserves a medal. But of course we pick a bitter cold day to meet, and of course things didn’t go as planned. {do they ever?!} Their handsome little 4 year old Sutton wanted nothing to do with me or my crazy antics. After dancing, singing & lots of ridiculous jokes, I gave up. In all my years of photographing kids he’s the very 1st kiddo to defeat me. He won. He was not in the mood for playing or photos, and quite honestly it was so frigid out I am surprised that any of us lasted as long as we did. Hadley, his big sister was the sweetest little princess from start to finish. I think she enjoyed the extra love from mommy & daddy! We all have been here before- which makes me appreciate these images so much. We are always in new stages with children, and they’re constantly changing. Capture it while you can. Hope you enjoy!!!

The Bailey Family

Huntersville, NC/ Lake Norman, NC    Family Photography, Child Photography

 

As I pulled up to meet the adorable Bailey Family, I couldn’t help but giggle.  A Christmas tree covered in lights (yep, a full size tree) was parked in the middle of the road, while 2 precious little girls twirled around it with pink cowboy boots on.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? My heart jumped with excitement. I knew right away that the Bailey family was going to be fun…and willing to be themselves even with my crazy self & giant camera smashed all in their personal space!  I was spot on. They rocked it. Their girls were beyond sweet, and I am quite sure they’re both extremely brilliant as well.  They were a blast and I hope you see that in all their photos!! Enjoy!!
