Look, I’m back!

Oh look who it is– AGAIN!!! I bet you’re as shocked as me! Baby Isla is napping and my wild man, Beck is at preschool probably torturing his precious teachers with face licks! Life is sweet! ❤ This North Carolina weather has been so crazy lately and we have been so ready to start spring sessions with beautiful flowers! Here are a few gorgeous sessions from the past few weeks. Enjoy!!

 

Little Miss Kayleigh – ONE is so wonderful ❤

Oh Hi There Pretty Friends!!

Davidson, NC                                      {FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY}   {CHILD PHOTOGRAPHY}   {NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY}

 

Blog life…hmmm it’s not for me. Although, I think I’d be really great as an actual blogger. Like if that’s all I had to do. Just write about my crazy days and family and friends. I’d keep you guys entertained for a lifetime. For real. But unfortunately, this is just how I share a little bit of my passion and life with everyone. I wish I spent more time sharing…but it’s rough finding the extra time. Between the stacks of emails, memory cards, schedules, editing, more scheduling, learning, playing with my crazy boys, keeping my kiddos alive, keeping my doggies alive, keeping up with laundry, endless meals for everyone and well let’s be real- the endless list of to-dos….I’m just not sure how anyone has time to add blogging to their list.

I started this post last night, but then didn’t have time to finish it…so I’m back at it this morning. See what I mean?! Summer has been a whirlwind and I just dropped off our first little stud muffin to his first day of 2nd grade.  I was doing fine until the radio played a depressing song for moms called “slow down”…yeah, I may have shed some tears. It really slaps you in the face. The years are flying by. Summers home with 4 kids are super long, but in reality I already miss it. The chaos will one day be completely different chaos, and I’ll miss every moment of the craziness that we’re in now. I am thankful for photos, and iPhones. I do my best to capture it all before it disappears. Ok done venting.

So I can’t even remember the last sessions I shared with all of you but I will share some from my last month of fun! I will also do my best to share more with you all during this CRAZY fall/winter season of sessions! I am so blessed with such extraordinary clients and cannot wait to see everyone again this year! ❤ I love you guys and cheers to school being back, pumpkin pies, and cool crisp air. YES!!!

Oh sweet November

Charlotte, NC                   {family photography} {child photography}

 

Woohoo November is a whirlwind…all I’ve been doing is eating bags of chocolates, editing and taking thousands of photos of gorgeous people. And oh yes, loving on my baby boys too!

I don’t have much time for small chat due to the fact people are ready to get their Christmas cards rolling and they’re awaiting their beautiful photos from me— so here is a quick peek at some of the glitter that has been in front of my lens lately!

PS- Thanksgiving is less than a week away. oh my. I am so crazy Thankful.

PPS- This weekend begins my fun Christmas Tree farm minis up in the mountains!! I cannot wait to show you the end result!!! yay!!

Here.

Davidson, NC      {family photography}  {child photography}

I am still in a moving coma, but I am here. We made it. Moving isn’t for the light hearted. Well, moving with 4 kids and 2 dogs isn’t.

Holy.

I am living out of boxes still…a month after we moved. And we may be living out of boxes until January. (ya’ll know this is a photographers craziest time of the year!) I don’t even know how I convinced myself to sit down long enough to blog this morning. But I did. WOOHOO!!! 🙂 I deserve a 3rd coffee. And maybe a 2nd bag of those amazing little lindt lindor limited edition peppermint white chocolate truffles I just killed between my sentences.

So, I have been juggling this insane weather, lots of newborns and a FULL schedule of sessions this month…and I have a great feeling that none of that is slowing down anytime soon. The monsoons we had here really ruined a couple weeks of sessions. But I did get to “start” working on my new office in our new home. I got myself a new desk, new rug and a bunch of fun stuff to add to my happy editing space. I will be sitting here. daily. often. Why not make it my one “girlie” place?! I may not be able to find socks, or pants but you better believe I know where every tiny newborn hat, charging cord and memory card is.

I want to share a few of the families I’ve been capturing lately and our last family shot in front of our old home! 🙂 Hope you enjoy! I’ll hopefully be back here soon…with even more memories to share! xo

My Crazy Family ❤

Free time…

Charlotte, NC        {family photography}  {child photography}  {personal}

Who seriously has free time these days?! I can 100% say it isn’t our family lately. We have 5 days until we move to our new home in Davidson…which means our lives are completely upside down right now. #hellopacking  So, as part of my packing I will need to pack up my office, my computer, my hard drives, my calendar, my camera, my lenses, my props, and every other piece of my business. So here I post a last few families and some of my own kiddies too. My last blog post in our beautiful home here.

I started my business here in this home. It organically grew here. I was inspired here. Our home is filled with so much light and so much love. I bought my first dslr camera here in this home. I brought 4 teeny tiny newborn baby boys home here. They have inspired me. This house became a home. Although I am so sad to say goodbye to this house, we will be taking our “home” with us and starting to make a whole new level of memories in our new home. ❤ The adventures ahead are limitless. New windows with new light…a brand new office…a new space to play with our kids. So this isn’t goodbye. This is the beginning.

Enjoy these beautiful people and sweet love ❤ xo

Spring fun!!! Bring on SUMMER!!!

Charlotte, NC    {family photography} {child photography} 

Another month passes…and I am still behind with blogging. darn. Actually it’s a month and a half to be exact. May is such a busy and fun month though. May brings on all the beautiful flowers and people…with very little rainy ruined days! NC has been blessed with incredible weather so I’ve had barely a moment away from my camera or computer. So many brand new baby miracles, graduates starting onto a new page in their lives and families coming together and sharing their stories with me and my camera. It has been full of blessings!  And since today is the first day of June, I thought I’d celebrate with a new blog post and flood your eyes with my gorgeous clients! ❤

GOAL OF THE MONTH: I am going to try to bring my camera out for my own little dudes more…so hopefully I’ll have some new photos to share with all of you soon! And one day I will start a mom blog with all the ridiculous/hilarious stories that happen to us or around us on a daily basis. Maybe that will be next month’s goal. Seriously- you guys wouldn’t even believe all the craziness that goes on around the Ras home! 🙂

Bring on Summer and all it’s awesomeness!
