Time Away/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

Our family took a couple of weeks away from home to drive to Minnesota to spend some time with a very small group of family on the lake.  It was amazing to be away but it’s also nice to be back home!  **I’m going to start doing outdoor baby sitter mini-sessions in August!  These will be contactless so that they will be totally safe.  Email me for more details!  brandynicole77@hotmail.com I’m ready to get back to work but want to make it safe!

Growing Up/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

Since I haven’t been able to do any studio sessions, I’ve been loving watching all of my baby clients grow up through social media!  Time goes by so very quickly.  These babies have changed so much in such a short time!  It always blows my mind when moms post birthday photos.  I never feel like enough time has passed for the babies to be that old already!

Wishing/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

Right now I’m wishing that 2021 will be a much better year!  I’m loving all of the time with my kids but I know that they need to be with their friends, in school, doing their extra curricular activities.  I keep thinking about so many skills that they are losing.  🙁  I keep thinking about how in 6 years, Mya will be off to college and she’s losing some of that time being a regular kid.  Makes me so sad.  I’m scared about what’s going to happen to my photography business that I’ve worked so hard for for 11 years, but am grateful that my husband is the bread winner for our family.  I worry for friend photographers who are the bread winners of their families.  Needless to say, I’ve been worrying a lot.  I’ve been doing my best to keep my mind off of it but it’s a lot to think about!  I hope you all are doing okay, staying healthy and happy.  I am so anxious to get back to work full time.  I miss working so very much!!  I am offering in-home sessions but I miss my studio.  I miss routines and schedules.  But for now, I will enjoy the lazy days of summer with my kids and be thankful that we are all healthy!

Happy Father’s Day!/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

I hope all of the dads out there had a wonderful father’s day and you were shown how much you are loved and appreciated!!  We had a wonderful day going on a hike and spending the afternoon swimming at my aunt’s pool.  The kids made lots of cards and fun crafts for Ryder!  For once, none of the kids pitched a fit….all day long!  It was a miracle!  lol  I love that with my job, I get to meet families during one of the most beautiful but also most difficult times in their lives.  It’s amazing to see these moms and dads working so hard together as a team.  It’s one of my favorite parts of my job.  I love seeing the dads who come in and really take care of the moms.  It’s beautiful.  The dads that are so in awe of their new baby.  I love how the dads talk to their new babies while they are changing their diapers, leaning over them on the changing table, talking in that voice that you only use with babies.  It’s the cutest thing!!  I’m looking forward to meeting many more moms and dads soon!!
