Cake Smash| A Sweet Milestone| Burlington North Carolina Birthday and Milestone Photographer

When we think of a cake smash we always think of a baby turning one. But not this session. This session has been in the works for nearly a year and I could not be more excited to shoot, share, and frame these images.

My Gram, she is the most amazing woman I know. If I can be even half of the woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend that she is I will have accomplished great things. I remember her dearly from an early age babysitting all of us grands and other children too, homemade meals, homemade chocolate suckers we got to make ourselves (!!!), a kitchen island lined with barstools and stocked with coloring books and crayons of every color. I see photos of all of the hand sewn dresses, knitted slippers, and numerous patches on my hand stitched carebears. I can still hear that sewing machine hum and smell her house.

Gram has surprised us several times in the last few years. Surprises that are dear to us but for reasons that we almost lost her twice. From an infection so great she slept for what seemed like months and all of our family came expected to have to plan a funeral; to an insane car accident caused by a drunk driver that landed her and two other family members in the hospital and medical care for months. Each time she bounces back stronger than before the incidents. It is truly a God given health that just keeps going!

October 29th, 2017 we celebrated 92 years of life for this special woman. In those 92 years she has had 1 husband, 6 children, 15 grandchildren and 34 great-grandchildren. She has breathed life for 48,355,200 minutes!

Happy Birthday to you Gram! You deserve every minute of every celebration!

The road to Motherhood is not always easy as a lot of people know. I also know how this is and the struggle is "real", in a very simple way of putting it. Infertility is something that no one is prepared for but the path to bringing home that baby whether it is your first or seventh is a humbling experience.

This beautiful family was brought together by adoption. A selfless birth Mother who knew her baby needed more than she could provide. An overjoyed family praying minute by minute that God would answer their prayers in the way that brings Him the most glory.

Well, GLORY!

Baby A is home!

She is gorgeous! What a blessing!

Congratulations to this new family. I cannot wait to watch her grow up this year!

Fall Mini| Beautiful Girls| Burlington NC Family| Photographer

Look at this gorgeous blonds! There is something about those blond beauties against the backdrop of golden leaves and fall red tones.

These beauties visited for their fall mini session recently and it gave me a chance to catch up since I had not seen them since Pippa was a few days old. They are all growing so fast and are so well behaved! Thank you G Family for stopping back in with me!

Happy Fall!

Fall Mini Sessions| Those Wiseburn Kids| Burlington North Carolina Children's Photographer

After babies grow I often miss seeing many of my clients that I have grown to love by seeing every few months. If I am lucky, I still see them yearly for Fall and Santa sessions as their family is continuing to grow up. I adore this time!

So a year later almost and here they are again! Such funny kids! I love the giggles!
