I am always so totally excited to start a new year, and 2014 is a BIG one to look forward to!!
The following will take place as of January 1st, 2014:
I want to THANK YOU all, from the bottom of my heart, for following my art the past (almost) 2 years. It has been an incredible and emotional journey so far, and I really cannot wait to see what the future holds for both Natalie Bee Photography and all the people who have graced my life the past 2 years. 2014 is going to be a great year for us all!!
If you have not started following me on Facebook, do it! This is where a lot of my content is, although I will be moving more over to my website in 2014, as well as fun discussions.
I am also on Pinterest, Instagram: @NatalieBeePhotography, and here's my newsletter:
I am elated for this family, they truly are so smitten with this tiny man, and you can see why…he is seriously so little and perfect! What an amazing Christmas gift for them...
You can see his 'Fresh 48' session, here.
I just adored all this little girl's beautiful details…her long thick lashes, her chubby cheeks, her flaky toes…I am so obsessed with this newborn age! It goes by so quick, so I make sure to tell parents when they are still pregnant that sessions work best within the first 2 weeks of life.
We had to be a little extra careful with this baby because she was still healing from a broken clavicle at birth, so some of my usual poses I was unable to to do on her. Adeline was a few days older than 2 weeks, but still slept so well and was super flexible to pose.
She is the little sister to two amazing big brothers, who love her dearly!
This rainbow baby sure gave us a scare…making his grand entrance into this World a whole four weeks early, but thankfully, Grady was incredibly alert, so healthy, and very ready to meet his amazing parents. They are now enjoying their first days home as a family, and loving it.
It was an honor to be able to capture some of the first moments in this life for him, and I am eager for his newborn session next week so I can cuddle on him. Congratulations to you both!
I had such an absolute blast with these mini sessions, and it was so fantastic to see some previous clients again, and get the opportunity to meet new clients.
The weather was chilly but perfect in the Apple Orchard, and we had lots of laughs! :)
Thank you to all who participated and also donated much-needed toiletry items to Inland NW Baby to help local families in need. I am very excited for the chance to do it again next year.
I want to apologize in advance for not keeping up with the blogging as I should have been!!! But there is a really great reason for me being so quiet...
My fiancé and I are absolutely over-the-moon excited to be pregnant again after the traumatic loss we had this Summer. I have to remind myself everyday, "I will have my Rainbow Baby!", to get through the extreme sickness (Hyperemesis Gravidarum, if anyone is so unlucky enough to know what it's like) and the fear of another loss. There is a strong heartbeat and everything looks great with baby, so I am staying as positive as I possibly can. This baby is more than worth every miserable day I have had, or will have in the future. I just want to hold him/her in my arms already :) We are pretty sure it's another boy, though.
We are planning on a home birth with our wonderful midwife, and having the gender be a complete surprise. There has already been such an outpour of happiness and support from our loved ones for this pregnancy, this baby is already loved more than words can describe. We are truly blessed. Thank you all so dearly <3
