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!!

*Personal Update:

Some of you may have already heard the fantastic news about our little family, but for those of you who are still in the dark—- BABY BOY #4 is on his way!!! We are so excited to announce this little miracle to our family, friend and the world! He is already so loved! I am due towards the end of December this year but with the other 3 coming at least 4 weeks early- we expect him to arrive towards the end of November! I will be continuing to work as usual through our wild Fall season but will take most of December off with my growing family. Lots of celebrating up ahead!! God’s grace and plan once again, has truly amazed us! Thank you all for the support and love you have shown our family. I can’t wait to share another little love bug with you all! (lots of new baby photos will be pouring on here!) 

 

Now for a fun mega mix of some of the wonderful families and children I have photographed this month! I have the best clients ever!! They shine, just look and see!! Enjoy!!!

The Bullock Family

Charlotte, NC    {family photographer, child photographer}

 

The Bullock family was such a great time to photograph. They adore their handsome little man, Maxwell to pieces and you can see that in all their photos! I loved how much they all just wanted to play and do “real” life! And their dog, Thor wanted to be a part of it all too! Everyone knows I have a special spot inside for sweet pooches! Here are a few images from their summer family session of fun! Enjoy!!

Newborn Finn

Charlotte, NC    {newborn photographer}

 

To all you bloggers out there, you rock. I give you mad credit. I have so little time these days to blog, but today I am sharing one of my many many sessions lately.

Sweet sweet Finn was welcomed into the world by the most precious new parents, Cathrin and Drew! I photographed this awesome couple many many years ago and was over the moon excited when they contacted me with great news of a baby on the way! 🙂 I couldn’t wait to meet little Finn once he arrived. He is perfect. Chubby little perfection. I just love him. He slept like an angel and was the best newborn model for us. I hope you enjoy a peek at his greatness!!

Enjoy!!

The Schubert Family

Cornelius, NC   {Family Photography}

 

I was so happy to get to see the Schubert Family again, and they welcomed me so kindly into their beautiful home. Scott and Egle have the most precious little girl Gabi- and we were celebrating her first birthday! It was amazing to see the change in Gabi from the minute I walked in the door to the end when I was leaving. She was super shy to start and really opened up as time went by. She danced the moment she heard a good tune…and when I say “good” I mean- an awesome pop song that we all would love as well. 🙂 I loved their carefree way of life. We all just hung out in their home enjoying some family time…and just being real. No put on poses or shows. This is what it’s all about with family photography in my eyes!! I hope you enjoy a few of their beautiful photos!!
