Goodbye 2016…Hello 2017

Once again…my blogging skills remain my LEAST active or scheduled talent. Sorry friends. Life happens, and almost daily I think to myself- wow, if I could sit down for 10 mins and write “this” or “that” down, it would make a hell of a story. I also think I should have another blog just for my crazy life- so all of you wanting to see photography stuff only could enjoy just that, and all the others that want to hear about the gong show at our home could read a different blog. ahhh well- it’s not happening anytime soon. So for now- I shall do my best to update you pretty people here as much as possible.

Personal part- (so you can skip past if you’d like) The last time I wrote to you I think I was pregnant…well, she is HERE! And wow what a roller coaster ride it has been! The short version of our story is…Isla Drew (“eye-la”) was born in the water in a beautiful room filled with love and support. It was magical. And the very best way to end this era of my life. (the child birthing era) She was perfection but was grunting a bit while breathing, so we ended up in the NICU for 5 days to help her transition her lungs to air. Luckily I never once had to leave her side. Finally made it home to all our boys, which was incredible. They are obsessed with their baby sister. I was just getting into the flow of things when Isla caught a cold and within 2 days we were in the ER. The process from ER to Pediatric Intensive care unit went very very quickly- and there is where we spent the next 17 LONG days fighting.  She had come down with RSV (aka the devil virus) and it attacked her and her tiny little lungs. After lungs collapsing and a horrific case of pneumonia, the doctors had to intubate her. Beyond horrific watching your tiny baby suffer. The most amazing part is- she is now healthy. She beat it. Isla is one strong little girl. Our medical care and staff at the PICU was beyond incredible. The prayers, love and endless support from our friends, clients, family and all others was also humbling. That is such an understatement. But I have no words. God works miracles. Period. He was there with us the entire time. I felt him.  “What doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger.”

With all that being said- I took some time off work. My camera snuggled in her pretty bag for a month and I snuggled with our angel baby. BUT now I am BACK! 🙂 Our family of now SEVEN is rocking the house and emptying grocery stores like it’s our job. So the show must go on…and my spring minis begin this weekend!!! WOOHOOO!!!! I am doing spring minis almost every weekend until June to catch up with all my precious friends and clients! Also, booking summer and fall regular sessions and newborns! Cannot wait! Don’t worry- I’ll have Isla most likely attached to me or on site with someone loving on her…so you should all get to meet her. She’s pretty awesome.

Thank you so much for supporting me and my little passion. I am so so grateful. ❤

Now I’ll attach some of the past sessions…I’m sure I’m forgetting some or many- but my Facebook page usually has MUCH better updates!! Go check it out… http://www.facebook.com/HeatherMariePhotographyNC/  or instagram @HeatherMariePhotographyNC

Oh, I’ll share of few personal pics of our past months in my next post today!! promise!!!

PS- Fall 2016 we rocked it out of the park!! Out of this world sessions to wrap up the year!!

Until next time…xx

my quick personal update:

So I may play catch up with my blogging for my entire life- so I hope everyone is starting to get use to that! eek!! Apparently my kids, hubby, clients, dogs or house are in need of 99.9% of my hours in each day. I am not complaining- at all. Actually I am so grateful. Days are filled with good stuff and happy people.  What a blessing! All three of our boys are now in some form of school 3 WHOLE mornings a week- so I am actually starting to get some time to sit and think again! Baby boy #4 is well on his way to taking over my body and so far so good! Still can’t believe we will be meeting him so soon! I plan on taking a couple weeks off when he arrives but no worries- I will be back in the saddle and photographing all my clients in 2015! I hope everyone is looking forward to the gorgeous fall as much as I am! ohhh pumpkin EVERYTHING and those colors!! I am over the moon! (plus it doesn’t hurt to enjoy a little bit cooler weather now that I’m packing on the baby bump pounds!) I can’t wait to see all my upcoming families and new babies…yay September is here!! xo

Now for this gorgeous family. This family makes me smile. Their session makes me smile. We had so much fun and they have so much love going on- it pours out in the photos! Their two little boys may have me wrapped around their pinkies too! I am sure you will see what I see…enjoy!!!
