That Sweet Little Bow

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.

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.

“You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.”

-C.S. Lewis

Images of our Family by Bethney Beckhaus Photography

  I love this quote from C.S. Lewis..I have been reading this book  with a few friends, and this quote stuck out to me so much. It applies to anyone at any stage of life..Keeeeeep dreaming. I’m also rereading this book with some women in my neighborhood. It was so good the first time, I’m excited about reading it again.

Neutrogena Sunscreen. You can also get this at Costco. I’m notorious for leaving my kids with what they call “ghost faces” after putting on sunscreen, but this one is so easy to rub in. We were in Disney this week for Owen’s winter break (we upgraded to the annual pass from our tickets last month) so we have been putting on lots of sunscreen. (89 degrees)

Sweatshirt Blankets. I have one that I super duper love, especially for long trips like this week. (we drove) Owen loves mine so much and always tries to steal mine..He keeps asking for one, so maybe I’ll get him a fun one like this one

I need to do a post of my favorite Disney tips and tricks, but two new things we tried this trip that I loved were.

-Avatar Flight of Passage in Animal Kingdom. What a great ride and definitely Owen’s favorite.

-Sci-Fi Drive in Movie Diner. Such a cute place to eat, and the boys got to sit in a car and watch clips from movies.

Target is getting ready to launch a Hunter boots collection, how fun is that? Coming April 14th to a store near you.

If you’re trying to mix up your workout routine..I can’t even ..”we ain’t never gettin’ older…”

In all seriousness, the past few days, I’ve been doing some of the blogilates workouts on the you tube app on the tv and love them. She even sends out an email with a calendar of which videos to do which days. She has some super cute yoga mats, too.

Image of my boys by Bethney Beckhaus Photography | Taken in Disney World 

February was a super busy month for us, and I’m a little sad that it’s already over. I saw some Daffodils have already started blooming in the neighborhood this week, so yay! Super excited about Spring and all of the minis we have coming up – Mommy and Me, family minis, Coastal Minis…(contact us if you want more info ASAP, we only have a few spots left!)

Goals for March

1. March is going to be a super busy shooting and editing month, but I’d love to squeeze in some time for editing our personal Disney photos.

2.I need to start exercising again so March seems like a great time to do it!

3.Finish any last minute plans for our trip to New York. Michael surprised me with Hamilton tickets for Christmas, and so I’m praying it’s not freezing cold!

4.Continue to catch up on blogging

5.Spend as much time as possible outside with the boys when we have those rare beautiful North Carolina days.

6.Start planning what we are going to do for Spring Break.

7.Write a blog post with all my favorite Disney tips/tricks.

8.Figure out Easter outfits for the boys.
