Growing Up/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

I really loved seeing this family!  I did a mini-session for their youngest many years ago.  Times sure does fly!!  She still looks the same, just with hair!  🙂  These girls were so incredibly sweet together.  I love taking pictures of older kids!  They are so easy!!  I’ve really enjoyed doing these mini-sessions lately.  I look forward to doing more coming up soon!  If you missed this round, I will be posting information coming up on my Facebook page so be on the lookout!  They are all ages and socially distanced!  It’s what I feel comfortable doing right now.  I do look forward to the day that I can be back in the studio!

Beautiful Family/Asheville Newborn Baby Photographer

I have an insane number of pictures to share from my mini-sessions.  All of the families have been so fun!  I had Mya come with me one day to help get kids to smile but she got super distracted by a praying mantis and spent her whole time playing with that.  lol  Luckily, most of the kids have been super happy.  I think right now, just getting out of the house is fun, no matter where you are!  I’m looking forward to doing these again soon!!

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! I’m ready to get back to work but want to make it safe!

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!
