Hannah and Madeleine have become regular faces here on the blog! Ayana and Bill, the girls’ parents, have become fans of the carly.bish photography brand and for that, I am forever grateful!
Hannah turned five years old last week and she had a birthday party at River City Pottery in Chattanooga! Even though birthday parties and parties in general are not typically what I do, when Ayana asked to hire me for the event, I had to say “of course!” And I have to admit, it was a lot of fun watching the kids paint different pieces and getting really into it! Not to mention, what a great way to take pictures of children! I’ve never seen so many kids staying in one place for such a long period of time! It was a rare thing to witness, I can assure you!
Man… Kids are cute. I kinda wish I had one, but I assure you, not yet. But seriously, kids are cute!
Okay, so I figure I’ll include a mini-update about life in general! As you saw, my brother came to visit over the weekend and flew back to Seattle yesterday morning. It was only for two days, but we packed it with as much activity as possible and it ended up feeling more like four or five days! But of course, that much activity totally wore me out and after driving 2.5 hours to-and-from Nashville (for the second time!) yesterday morning, I took a much needed nap! But I am recouped and ready to tackle these next few projects before we head to Seattle ourselves! I’m so excited to be home for Christmas! My first in six years! I’m sure you’re thinking by now, We KNOW! It’s been SIX YEARS! We GET IT! But seriously, you don’t know unless you’ve experienced it yourself. So I’ll say it over and over again. FIRST CHRISTMAS IN SIX YEARS, BABY! I just can’t wait!
Kids are certainly cute. These images are a ton of fun. I have a 2 year old and I know how much fun they can be to photograph… though they can be a challenge as well. Thanks for sharing!
Which reminds me… I shot Natalie’s birthday party (at the pottery shop) and I should probably edit & blog those… because, kids are cute. 🙂
