A few favorites from this week..

Oh my goodness, these silhouette necklaces, love.

The GoodRX app. My dermatologist told me about this..so great. It compares prescription prices at different pharmacies near you + also sometimes has coupons.

Cozi family organizer. Love all the notifications and reminders and that Michael and I can both sync on our phones.

Reading with Owen. I love that he loves to read so much and we can spend quality time together just sitting together and reading.

I really love the whole, “Collect Moments not Things,” motto…I’d love a sign or frame in the house with that printed…(but then you know, it’s another thing to buy HA) We’ve traveled a lot over the past few months, and I just enjoy it so much. We’ve been emphasizing with the kids putting our money towards trips and not toys they will toss after a month.

I, Eliza Hamilton I just read this to get ready for going to see Hamilton, and it was so so good. A great way to learn the history about Hamilton, especially if you are going to the show.

Favorites from our NYC Trip.

There’s always something new to do/see in NYC…here are a few favorites from our trip last week.

Murray’s Bagels. Delicious. I had the poppyseed bagel, and it was amazing. So many great bagel sandwiches to choose from, too.

Dough. This place was so yum! Sometimes doughnuts can just be too much, but these were perfect. The salted chocolate caramel and the lemon poppy were my favorite.

Burger and Lobster. I can’t even. We ate a burger with lobster on it, and it was unbelievable.

Black Tail. What a unique spot – super cool.

Pizzieria Sottocasa. They fly in Burrata cheese every weekend (you can only get Fri – Sun) so of course we had to try it. yum!

I’ve also really wanted to try Cookie Do NYC for a while, and it was super sweet and yum.

Milk Bar Bakery. Chocolate chocolate was my favorite followed by the Chocolate Chip Cornflake cookie.

Most of this was food…We also had fun seeing the ACC Tournament in Brooklyn. (UNC beat Duke, go heels!) and we went to see Hamilton. It was really fun, and Michael actually really enjoyed the play. I loved reading the I, Eliza book beforehand, but I was glad I hadn’t listened to the music, and everything was a surprise. Super fun!

Before He’s One

Raleigh Studio Baby Photographer

I loooove Baby milestone sessions and getting to see how they grow and change in the first year. It was so sweet to see this little one and get to photograph him with his Mommy. He has an older brother, and it’s always so special to get portraits alone with your baby, too. (See his newborn portraits with his big brother here, so so precious!) I love how simple and neutral milestone sessions are, and they just focus on you + your baby. I love photographing all the details that change so quickly, little hands, little feet, all that baby chunkiness! Such a sweet morning with these two!

The calendar has been crazy this week..Ericka can hardly keep up with all the styling emails. We are trying to schedule everyone as fast as we can! That being said, if you have been thinking about booking a session and haven’t done it, please contact us as soon as possible. We also have a few spots left for our Spring Mommy and Me and Family minis, so send me an email (becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) for more information. We are really looking forward to Spring and warmer weather!

That Sweet Little Bow

Raleigh Newborn Photography

Raleigh Newborn Photographer 87P I N this to pinterest

Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart.

-Winnie the Pooh

These two big brothers were so super cute with their baby sister and you could tell that they just lovvvved her. One brought popcorn to sit and watch while we finished her portraits at the end, soo cute! It was really sweet that this family waited to find out the gender and were surprised with a baby girl! Loved meeting this sweet family and photographing them with their baby girl at home. Oh, and that little pink bow, the sweetest!

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? I was waiting for the words, “Its a boy!” and instead my husband, Zach said in disbelief and tears, “Jess! It’s a girl! It’s a girl!!” It was a really beautiful moment.

What was your favorite part of our session together? I was a nervous-wreck the morning of our session and Becky put me at ease. She was so kind to my boys and cared about getting the shots that I wanted. She also didn’t rush us and worked around our crazy crew.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? I was nervous that it wouldn’t turn out because my boys were so excited that day and were constantly moving around, but the pictures turned out better than I could have expected. Thank you, Becky!

Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Any cute stories to share? I have two boys, Sawyer and Rhett, and they have been the best big brothers. Sawyer lovingly caresses her cheek throughout the day and Rhett brings her bows whenever hers falls out. I can’t wait for them to all grow up together and play.

How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? One that is spent outside with no phones and no distractions. Just enjoying each other’s company.

So Much Love

Raleigh Newborn Photographer

Raleigh Newborn Photographer 7P I N this to pinterest

This session at home was just perfect..So much love surrounding this sweet baby boy! (See their maternity portraits here) You just never know what will happen with babies, but this little one, he just slept and slept and slept. He kept dreaming throughout most of the session. The colors that they picked out for their session were just so beautiful together. I love this session so much in color and in black and white. Neutrals and simplicity can also just look stunning in black and white. Another thing I loved about this session is that her Mama was able to be there and be in a few photos. Grandparents can be such a big help at newborn sessions.

We just got back from a short trip to New York City this weekend (So much to share about this trip!) I am really missing all of the amazing food in NYC (ha!) I was a little worried that there might be a lot of bad weather and snow, but we just missed it, thank goodness, and then got home a few hours before it started snowing here. While being gone, we booked a lot of newborns (I love newborns so much!) so if you want to get on the calendar for summer/fall, shoot me an email quick! So excited about all of the babies coming up.

Addis Jemari

Raleigh Commercial Photographer

Addis Jemari leather bagsP I N this to pinterest
If you follow me on social media, then you’ve probably seen these beautiful Addis Jemari leather bags. Several of you have asked me about purchasing them, and all the new bags are now up on their site! So many pretty bags….loved so many of them, and the girls being photographed just oohed and ahhed over them, too. See all of the bags for sale on their website here. (They also have jewelry, scarves, and more.)

The mission of Addis Jemari, from their website.

“Our mission is working with teenage girls who are orphaned or find themselves in vulnerable positions. We strive to encourage, educate, and empower them through the work of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We seek to help these girls by encouraging them in the truth that everyone is created in God’s image and therefore have immense value. Educating and equipping these girls will transform their lives from day- to-day survival to a life that flourishes and thrives with new purpose.  As we empower these girls to grow into the young women God has created them to be, it will change their future and allow them a new beginning, preparing them to come alongside others in similar life circumstances. Our prayer is these girls will not only impact their community, but the world.”

You can also sponsor the family and staff of Addis Jemari, the Addis Jemari girls, or contribute to their healthcar or education. Find out more here.
