Happy 5th Birthday!/Asheville Child Photographer

I did Mya’s 5th birthday pictures last weekend. ¬†She has become quite the little model these days. ūüėČ ¬†I love it! ¬†She did have to take time in between pictures to catch tadpoles. ¬†lol ¬†I would have been fine with that if her Matilda Jane dress hadn’t cost an arm and a leg! ¬†Happy 5th birthday to my little nature lovin’ Cinco de Mayo baby!!

Baby Baby

I just recently found out that our Piper is going to be born in about a week. ¬†I’ve been wanting to do some maternity pictures, so this weekend it was time! ¬†I was already doing Mya’s 5 year pictures at the Biltmore House, so I decided to just have my husband take some pictures for me while we were there. ¬†I set up the pictures and the camera settings and told him exactly what to do and he did such a great job! ¬†Doing these pictures was a major task. ¬†We had to get River up early from his nap and he was not happy! ¬†The gates close to go into the gardens really early so we had to get there early, take our dinner and all of our clothes. ¬†We hung out for a while, had a picnic, changed in the car and then had to walk a ways to get to the spots that I wanted. ¬†My sciatica was about to put me over the edge. ¬†And swollen legs and feet don’t mix very well with cowboy boots! ¬†I could barely get them on and back off! ¬†By the time we got in the car to go home 4 hours later, I was ready to die, but I’m so glad that we got some pictures done because this is my last pregnancy.

The Final Session/Asheville Maternity Photographer

Tonight I did my final session until the fall. ¬†I’m not quite sure how I ever thought I would be able to do sessions right up until my due date! ¬†Laying on the ground to get good shots is one thing, but then I have to get up off of the ground. ¬†lol ¬†I loved everything about this session: the location, the fun clients, the overcast sky,….it was the perfect session! ¬†It was fun doing a session with someone who was also out of breath walking up hills. ¬†We had a ton of laughs at ourselves and each other. ¬†I’m going to miss working, but I know that with 2 kids and a newborn, life as I know it is about to get all kinds of crazy! ¬†So get ready to see lots of pictures of my own children for the next few months! ¬†If you are interested in a fall session, I will probably be doing a few select sessions starting in October, so don’t wait to book a date. ¬†They will go fast!

Time Flies/Asheville Baby and Family Photographer

This evening I did my second to last session before maternity leave. ¬†I’m so happy that it was with this family! ¬†I hadn’t seen their sweet baby girl since she was a newborn: ¬†here and here. ¬†She was still just as easy as she was 8 months ago. ¬†We did their session at the Biltmore House, a place that I have been dying to do a session at. ¬†And it was great because we were pretty much the only people around! ¬†I had such a great evening with you guys. ¬†I’m looking forward to seeing you guys again down the road!

Love her little fish face!  hehe
