It’s hard to believe, but December is here. And those of you with kids know that there is a balance here, between how fast December slips away, and how long it can seem to take to get to Christmas when you have little voices asking each and every minute of every day “When is it Christmas?”
To pass the time, I’ve created an album on my FaceBook page highlighting my amazing clients from the past year. From brand new babies, to weddings, to just some family love… these people have trusted me to capture their special moments and I feel so happy to have been able to be a part of their memories.
I will also post on my blog each day, counting down, but please feel free to “Like” kim culbert photography on FB and following along there too.
Another Baby’s First Year candidate, and Mr. A was a superstar! He had so many great outfits to wear (but also loved baring it all). Seeing him now, I wouldn’t have believed that he was a preemie to start… he’s all boy-chunk these days! I can’t wait to see him when he turns one, to capture his emerging character.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when a mom contacted me to do newborn style photos with her two month old daughter. Usually my newborn sessions take place within the first 12 days after birth when the baby is super sleepy and poseable. What I got for my session instead was a gorgeous dark eyed beauty, who had amazing eye contact and lots of happy awake time. I think this is the fastest I’ve edited a session as well, since she had the most flawless skin. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Two amazingly cute girls came to visit me in the studio last week. Big sister T was so ready to show off her new baby sister and was quite the helper. It was fabulous to meet the B family and I have a feeling that mom was ready to meet her little one sooner rather than later with this heat we’ve been having. I think that this is the first time this year that I haven’t had to crank the heat in my studio for a newborn session!
Enjoy your newly expanded family!
Even though it’s Mother’s Day, I feel blessed every day that I have two amazing sons who are such characters, and who make me laugh on a daily basis. They are helping to mold me into a better person, and I can’t imagine my life without them.
Here’s a shout out to all the great moms out there. To the ones that are just starting out, learning the nuances of what each little sound means; and who maybe sometimes feel like they have no idea what they are doing. To the ones who have loved and lost a child… the heartbreak is unimaginable to me, but I wish you all the strength in the world to not give up. To each and every mom, I say to you “Do your best, and you will be great.” That’s all that these little people who look up to us ask for… our best we can be on each given day. Sometimes your best might just be that you got them dressed and fed… there shouldn’t be any judging as long as you do your best.
Here’s to each and every one of you that is a mom, or love a mom…. enjoy your day!
The day I had this family into my studio was so great. They already had a precious daughter, Miss S, (who throughout the shoot was offering me pretend cake slices from the playroom downstairs — so cute!) and now had welcomed into the world. Master K. He slept like a champ, and has the best lips around!
Enjoy your little man, and your teasers!
