Heading out to Harper Jane’s Twelve month portrait session I couldn’t help but feel amazed at how quickly her first year has flown by.

She has grown up right before my eyes.

Helen is one of the most adorable six month olds I know! I was honored to capture her at this sweet age. Check out her cuteness-you can’t help but smile!

She was all smiles and coos for me during our session.

Event: Arts in Action

Location: Frank Porter Graham Elementary Chapel Hill, NC

website: http://www.ncartsinaction.org/

March 4th was a big day for me. It was my first ABP session since my sweet Lila Byrd was born. I was excited, nervous (about leaving my little byrd), and honestly not sure how it would feel to be “back”. Well if you guys know me you know that I think God always knows exactly what he is doing and he planned for my first session back to be with my Arts in Action family. I realized I have been photographing this awesome non profit for four years now. (Thanks Lisa Kang and Lisa Van Deman!). This non profit brings happiness, dance, and the excitement of learning new things to our schools and our kids. As I said it was the perfect session back…

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while you could miss it.”
― Matthew Broderick as Ferris Buller, “Ferris Buller’s Day Off”

Who doesn’t love Ferris Buller and his wisdom? I have to admit I have followed this quote quite well lately. Where have I been, having the time of my life with a little byrd of my very own. Lillian Colette Byrd, Lila, was born about a week early on December 29th. She decided she wanted to be here to ring in the New Year with us! Since the 29th I have been working hard and learning each day the most important role I have ever had, being a mother. In my work as a photographer I closely work and watch mothers and their children and have always been so amazed at the relationship between the two. Even being a part of so many families lives and special moments-nothing truly prepared me for this adventure of being someone else’s mom. So friends this is the view from my ABP office lately…Lila in her sling as I try to get work done.

Hello and Happy Holidays Everyone!

Sorry I have not blogged in so long but it has been non stop here at ABP trying to wrap up all my 2009 sessions and holiday orders so I can get ready for Baby Byrds arrival! Hooray! I hope you guys have enjoyed this wonderful holiday season and taken the time to relax and enjoy it all!

Over the next few weeks I hope to catch you guys up on some fun ABP sessions that I have not blogged about yet. Harper Jane Vick is a fantastic way for me to start. Photographing her and documenting how fast she is growing has brought me so much joy this year. She is pretty wonderful and makes the late night editing so much fun when I see her little smiles. ABP has photographed Miss Harper Jane every three months since her birth. You may remember her Newborn session.

Check out how much she had grown at our Three Month Session!
