My Top Favorites of Aidan | Fayetteville NC Children Photographer

2011 was one of the best years of my life.  My schedule has stayed very full of wonderful families, my son started school and is doing an outstanding job, my baby girl was born and is gorgeous and healthy, and life couldn’t be better.  I have narrowed my favorite photos of 2011–it originally started as a “Top 11 of 2011″ but most (all) categories ended up with more.  I tried to keep it as close to 11 as possible.

First up, my Top 13 favorites of Aidan this year!  My little boy has grown up so much this year.  He’s incredibly smart, charismatic, kind, and the best big brother anyone could ask for.  He’s yet to show even a hint of jealousy about having a baby sister.  He can put together advanced lego sets completely alone (even those that are for ages 7 and up).  He loves Rollercoaster Tycoon computer game and rarely gives me computer time myself.  He uses big words, correctly.  He says “Hmm, that’s ‘intresting’ ” and makes me giggle.  He thinks I feed Ella parmesan cheese in a bowl because he can’t understand why her ‘cereal’ doesn’t look like his cereal.  If a food is hot, it “bout electrocuted me”.  He makes me laugh, and he makes me want to be a better person.  I love this boy more every day.  He is the reason I wanted to become a photographer–to document his life in photos.  People joke with me that I must take a photo of day of him and I don’t–but I do make sure that I have plenty of him.  He’s my favorite model, and I think he’s pretty darn cute myself.

1.  Catching Snowflakes=

2.  Can you tell I love the snow?

3.  We told him he’s going to be a big brother.  He’s very proud of this role.

4.  He turned 4 years old.

5.  He got his first car

6.  We visited the Happiest Place on Earth

7.  Just because he’s a ladies man

8.  We went to San Diego and he got to see a real sunset on the beach

9.  He was a pirate for Halloween

10.  He’s beautiful

11.  He’s funny

12.  Just because he’s beautiful

13.  I love him.

Christian | Fayetteville Fort Bragg NC Newborn Baby Photographer

Baby Christian was the sleepiest, posiest baby I’ve had in a while.  I was completely in love with him–as were his mommy and daddy.  He’s one lucky little boy to have so much love.

December 21, 2011 - 11:11 pm tamsen - wow- Carrie, these are stunning! lovely images, beautiful baby!
