This is My Boy!! 5 years ago we ran out for a Fall Session…my goodness…where has the time gone???

This summer has been incredibly strange…we have been working on a rebrand of our logo and website for Kelli C Photography, as well as creating new and exciting things for some of our other ventures (more details to come!)…we have been busy with lots of doctors appointments for my Mama’s cancer-kicking-venture…we have worked on our vacation rental that we have on our property getting it ready to be a place of rest for those who need it…and we have just run ourselves ragged with enrichment activities for the big kids and daily life with 2 babies two and under.

While looking back through the last 6 years of photos and trying to pick out favorites, I have just really enjoyed remembering all the special moments. Some really incredible ones that I am coming across today are of my own boy…my goodness…I can’t believe this was 5 years ago! Look how handsome he is…he will be 9 in just a few short weeks.

If you would like a session like this with your handsome boy, just send me an email and we will book you one for this Fall! I love being a NC Child Photographer!

Fall Sessions book fast and I can only take a limited amount each month!

The next few I call the many faces of Josh!!

Those hands in his pocket just kills me…he looks so grown up there…my how he has changed!

This is one I wish I had printed long ago…so stinking handsome!

So, I have a friend who has Goldendoodles that she breeds…and I am ALWAYS seeing the cutest pics of her babies online. I began to dream of my sweet little baby girls all snuggled up with these crazy cute puppies and I had to make it happen!

With any session, there are so many variables that come into play…one I didn’t figure on…my babies would not really want to snuggle with the puppies! HAHA! With that said…I still am so excited with the little cuties and the pics we got! Fortunately, we are going to try again with her newest littler when they are a little younger than these (6 week old puppies are fast!!!).

If interested in one of these puppies (brown boy is still available!)…contact Billie! Check out her website here!

I love, love, love to meet new couples! This wedding was a great, big surprise a month ago. We typically book 8-12 months in advance…so to get a new inquiry for a wedding that was less than a month away…for a couple from Vegas who were coming to our area for a destination wedding! What are the odds?? For us…the odds were totally in our favor! We believe in creating a close relationship with our brides and grooms, spending time getting to know them so that when we arrive on wedding day, we feel like we are hanging out with friends. We just did not have time to do that with this couple…so, for us to show up and to instantly feel at home with everyone was a complete and welcome blessing!

This venue was simply amazing! I really loved all the attention to detail and amazing ways that they work with the Bride and Groom to make their day just perfect! The food was divine and I honestly believe that the wedding cake was the best we have had! Seriously…I love some wedding cake and this was awesome! Allison’s flawless hair and make-up, amazing dress, and floral details were just beautiful as well!

I am just so grateful for every Bride and Groom that we are able to work with…this one is no exception! Allison and Darrin (and Riley too!)…we wish you many, many happy years of marriage and all the blessings of Heaven to rain down on your family!

I was so excited to hear from this family again! I love doing extended family sessions!! Most people would not tackle a family of 29…but, for me…it is heaven! The mixture of posed and fun lifestyle shots are what really make these sessions fun. To show the legacy that one couple can create makes me just smile the whole time I edit the session! I hope to one day have a photographer come to document my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Such an amazing gift to be blessed with this large family!

It seems so unreal to me that a year ago today I was getting ready to meet this sweet little girl. I honestly don’t know how time has gone by so quickly…I think about it and just want to ball my eyes out. Have I done this last year well? I feel like a complete failure in so many ways. I have kept a pretty clean home, washed tons of clothes, and worked with some amazing people…but, have I laughed enough with my children? Have we made messes and gotten dirty together? How many bubbles have I blown? How many flowers have we picked? Those things seem like they are in the “not enough” category!

I look back on this year and realize how tough it has been. Having 2 under 2 was incredibly hard. My husband started working full time for the first time since we have been married…right when I really needed him the most. We opted to start homeschooling again. Jubilee has hated food for months and still nurses A LOT…JodiAnn seems smarter than me most days and I really have to stay on my toes to keep up with her!

When I look at these pictures and think about this party…I see that I definitely had more time on my hands when I dreamed up JodiAnn’s party a little over a year ago. I can see why many parents struggle to take enough pictures of the second baby and I have worked so hard to make sure that I have kept up with Jubilee’s baby book. But, you know what, it has been a struggle!

I am still working really hard on balance. I am still no where near where I want to be. I have a God size vision for our life…and I honestly can’t see how it will all work. For the most part…all I can see are all the ways that I can mess it up! Yet, He is faithful and I am doing my very best to learn how to just submit to Him.

Jubilee, my little Ju Ju Bean…your presence in our home is absolutely remarkable. I never knew how much I needed you until you got here. You are my Mama’s girl…my little stinker…the one who keeps me wondering…and who constantly makes me smile. Most of the time when I feel like fussing or crying, your smile is what changes that all to laughs. Thank you sweet girl for the gift that you are! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for your amazing life my little anointed one!
