letters to my daughters: january | Raleigh Child Family Photographer

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
~ Roald Dahl

My darling Macy,

Since the day you were born, you have been constant noise and motion. If ever I was asked for just one word to describe you, it would be EXUBERANT. You are my glass half-full, my whirlwind, my laugh-a-minute good time gal.

This year you’ve been very into all things princess and fairies. From our wonderful trip to Disneyworld last year through to your Rainbow Fairy birthday party, it’s all girly all the time. I love watching you play and dance and twirl and sing…like I said, constant noise and motion!

I wanted to capture this magical time in your childhood before it passes by all too quickly. My little girl, my baby who changed my life when you made me a mother…you are growing so fast into such a smart and talented young lady. And I have loved every single minute of it.

I love you, baby girl.

xoxo,
mommy

Winter Baby Session Special | Raleigh Newborn Photographer

Knock, knock. Is this thing on?

Happy New Year to you! It’s been awhile since I blogged anything more than quick sneak peeks, and the time has come to dust this old thing off and get back to work!

Winter is always a wonderful time for me to reflect on the past year and decide on changes I’d like to make for the new year. It’s a time for me to slow down and work a little on my business after months of busily working in my business.

This winter I am busier than ever behind the scenes over here, with lots of major happenings coming for 2014, both personally and professionally. It really will be a milestone year, and it’s very exciting! I can’t wait to share more over the next few weeks with all of you!

In the meantime, I’ve got to keep the ship afloat, so to speak, so I just wanted to put out the reminder that I am offering a great promotion for all sessions for January through March!

If you know anyone who is pregnant or who has just had a baby, please pass the news along to them by clicking the email icon right below this post. (I do offer a fun referral incentive, by the way!)

nadia | 8 days | Raleigh Newborn Photography

Oh, sweet Nadia. 8 days old and absolutely perfect! She was wide awake and taking it all in for the first half of her newborn photography session, but not for too long. I loved this photo of her looking very bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!

The quilt she is laying on was hand-sewn by her sweet mother. It is gorgeous and an instant family heirloom. I know Nadia will treasure it for always!
