Don’t Blink ~ Baby Avery ~ Hickory, North Carolina Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

The days are long, but the years fly by

I never understood that quote

Until I had my children

I’ve woken up and my children are growing

The bottles will disappear

They will eventually sleep

The sizes of diapers will continue to grow

The newborn smell will fade

Don’t blink

Breathe it all in

Every moment

As simple as it may seem

I love that about this momma

While shooting, we spoke of moments

Moments she didn’t want to forget

First times mommies usually don’t “get it.”

They don’t get that this exhaustion will cease and these moments are fleeting, but Megan does….

Welcome to world baby Avery

Elmo, Big Bird, & Tap Shoes: Just a few of a two year old’s favorite things ~ Hickory, North Carolina Lifestyle Photographer

Morgan is two

I CAN NOT believe it

I saw this child born

I saw this woman become a mother

I saw the look in her eye of pure love

I’ve seen this child grow up

2 years have already gone by

With a blink of our eyes and she is now a full blown toddler

Happy Birthday Lea Lea

Beautiful party for a beautiful little girl! So glad you caught all these wonderful memories!

Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails ~ That’s what little boys are made of ~ Case turns 2 ~ Hickory, North Carolina Lifestyle Photographer ~ Child Photographer

What a FUN party.

As soon as I walked in, I told Case’s mommy that she needed to do this whole “party” planning thing for a living.

Cho Cho trains, story time, whistles, and hats. She thought of everything.

Even got to bring my little man J with me.

Thank you family for allowing me to experience things through your child’s eyes…
