Natalie Bee's Birthday Giveaway
I will just start off by saying, I have never won a darn thing in my entire life. This Christmas Eve brought some of the greatest news though...I had won a copy of Preveal for my iPad!!! Woo whooo!
BUT, to sweeten the deal...they added a 2nd copy to give away to one of my amazing followers!!!!
*Even Better Happy Dance*
How awesome is that?? So, go over to Preveal, give them a 'Like' and tell them Natalie Bee sent you! Thank you for being so awesome, Preveal! While you're at it, go ahead and follow me on Pinterest, and pin this image to get an extra entry :)
What is a better way to celebrate your love, than with something a little sexy...? This session is 45 minutes long, with an option to add professional hair & makeup by Shear Design, for only $25 extra!!! You will receive a copy of 10 digital images with print release, as well as an adorable 'Little Black Book' for your lover's eyes only!
Get ready to be pampered and to boost that self confidence...hear what past clients said about their boudoir mini session experience:
"A Boudoir session is literally ALL I needed to boost my confidence and truly feel better about myself. Had I known how good I would have felt after doing this, I would have done it YEARS ago! Thank you so much Natalie!" - J
"I cried when I saw my images for the first time...Was that really me?! Yes. And I looked damn good." - K
"Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for restoring my self-esteem." - J
"I have never seen my husband rendered speechless...until now!!!!" - S
I joined Pinterest over a year ago, and I already have (roughly) 3,500 pins. Now, this account is my personal account and is not really used for my own business, but to find awesome recipes, cute new clothes, and all the cool new gadgets. I know what an awesome difference just pinning a *few* of my own images to this site has been to my blog stats, so I have decided to create a Pinterest account simply for all my business needs!
You can find more deals, blog posts, images, What to Wear Guides, and inspiration

All the Best in 2013
Natalie Bee's First Publication
Remember this engagement session from a few weeks ago, Chad & Bekah...?
Well, after much thought, I decided to submit this session to Apple Brides, for my first possible publication as a photographer. You know what those ladies went and did? They actually published it!!!
I am so incredibly happy right now, tears of joy stream down my face. This Holiday season might be second best ever, next to last year, when I got engaged to the love of my life! :)
I want to extend a huge Thank You to all those over at Apple Brides, for putting a smile on this mama's face!
*Most* of my clients, I would say 98%, are connected through some type of social networking, whether it be Facebook, MySpace, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Great way to show those pictures to everyone?
Facebook Timeline covers
Announcing a newborn? Save the Date? Holiday 'card'? I have it all!
I can custom make every announcement to fit the style & color you would like, as well as any special type or theme. These are a great way to brag about how gorgeous your new beh-beh is, and to tell everyone the big news, in a stylish way.
With help from an easy to use program, I can show you all the different ways your images can be on your wall, including canvas wraps and large prints or floats. This way, you can see exactly what size & what image would look best in your home...
What a better way to show off, than the electronics you use everyday? Custom iPhone & iPad covers are available. These covers are not only awesome to look at, they are also sturdy.
A great way to keep track of time and keep track of how it flies, especially when you have little ones.
These are fully customizable for every year! Order your 2013 calendar today :)
Lincoln is 3 Months Young!
This little guy has already changed in SO many ways in the past 3 months!!! His eyes are so bright with wonder, it is so amazing to watch him watch his mama <3
I cannot WAIT until Lincoln's 6 month session! I mean...look at those eyes...! *swoon*
It needs to be said, both to my clients and fellow photographers: BABY SAFETY IS ALWAYS FIRST!!
It doesn't matter if you are working with a newborn, or a 3 month old, or a 6 month old, or a 12 month old...their safety always comes first and foremost. This edit took me about 10 minutes total to clone out the dad's arm holding onto his son's back (before), and to warm it up and haze it out a bit. Although this little man was okay at sitting on his own, he was still a tad bit wobbly, so he just needed a little extra support :)
As a mother myself, I will always treat the children I photograph as if they were my own. I would never do a setup with another child that I would not attempt on my own kiddos. That being said, I always make sure to take to parents beforehand to see if they are okay with the certain pose or setup I am trying to accomplish.
This year cannot really be described in words, other than 'Amazing'. I have met so many amazing people, both clients and fellow photographers, and watched couples grow into families. 2012 has been a year of monumental personal discovery and reflection, and I know now, after a year, what I want my 'niche' to be! My heart will always be with everything that has to do with babies: Maternity, Birth, Newborn, Nursing & Toddler photography.
Although I will be photographing other things when asked to do so, I want to focus in on what I feel is my strong point, and the part about this job I love the most. With that being said, there will be LOTS of changes to my business for the oncoming 2013...
