Babies Don’t Keep

-Ruth Hulbert Hamilton

Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth!

Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,

Hang out the washing and butter the bread,

Sew on a button and make up a bed.

Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?

She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking!

Oh, I’ve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,

Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.

Dishes are waiting and bills are past due

Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo

The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew

And out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo

But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo

Look! Aren’t his eyes the most wonderful hue?

Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.

The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow

But children grow up as I’ve learned to my sorrow.

So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!

I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

Why a Parenthood Package?

The phrase I hear most about babies is "they grow up too fast!" As a mom about to have three kids, 3 years old and under, I can attest that while we are still in a major diaper and dependance stage, they really do grow up way too fast!! The things you think you'll never forget - their tiny hands grabbing yours, the feel of their soft cheek against yours - all fade. Eventually, photos and the fading memories are all that remain. Your baby will change so much in the first year you'll barely believe it! From the complete helplessness of their first day to the 1 year old beginning to walk and crave independence, you don't want to miss a moment. The parenthood package helps ensure you won't.

My Photography Philosophy

My goal is for you to look and feel as natural as possible AND have fun doing it. Literally 90% of people say "we're so awkward in front of the camera!" And I always say there's no such thing as awkward people, just an awkward photographer. It is my job to help you look your best. I give lots of direction during each session so you'll never be confused about where to look or how to stand or hold your baby! I've got your back!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long until we receive our images?

Sneak peaks are delivered within 48 hours and full albums are available within 3-4 weeks.

How many images are included?

There is literally no limit! It varies per session, but you can expect around 70+ images for each session.

What if my child isn't cooperating for the shoot?

I have a 1 year old and a 2 year old, so I know about uncooperative babies! ;) While the best lighting is crucial for gorgeous photos, we schedule sessions based around nap times/feeding schedules etc. Each session is typically 30-45 minutes giving us plenty of time for kids to warm up to the session.

What if it rains?

We just reschedule to another day, no problem! I watch the weather radar very closely and will make a call 3-5 hours before the shoot on the day of. If you're getting hair/make up done we will make the call the day before.

Do you require a deposit?

A 50% deposit is required at time of booking. Sales tax will be added to each package as is required by the state of North Carolina.

I'm ready to book! Now what?
