Aiden turns FIVE | NC child photographer

I am behind on posting client images here on the blog because my son is stealing the show.  It’s hard to believe that 5 years ago, tonight, I was sitting in a hospital room with my husband, scared out of my mind what would happen the next day.  I had already been in the hospital 9 days due to preterm labor.  They gave us until 34 weeks for him to come, and that didn’t happen, so at 34 weeks, I was taken up the elevator to a labor & delivery room where labor was induced.  About 9 hours later, our precious little boy had arrived… just as healthy as could be too!

We are now well into the transition from preschooler to big kid.  Aiden graduated from preschool last Friday, and is now super excited about starting kindergarten in the fall.  I can’t believe how fast the time has gone.  That’s why pictures are so important.  Aiden and I have been reminiscing this past week, looking back at the story of his life.  I’m thankful for the photographs documenting his baby days and childhood, especially the moments I know he will not remember.  While I thoroughly enjoy working with my clients and helping them create a photographic journal of their own lives,  I love being able to give Aiden the gift of pictures of his life.   I hope he appreciates it when he gets older.  And even if he doesn’t, I’m sure his future wife will love me for it. ;)

Happy Birthday my sweet angel.  You brought new meaning to my life, in so many different ways.  You challenge me, and you help bring out the best in me.  You have made me  a more understanding person.  You have taught me patience.  Your early arrival brought me closer to our Creator and for the first time in my life, I really learned to trust His will, and I thank you for that.   What mattered to me changed when you came into my life.   No longer do I care about wearing the right clothes, or having the perfect house, or driving the right car.  Those days of superficial worry are behind me now.  Two people were born that June evening five years ago – you and your mommy.  The person I was before you were born doesn’t exist anymore, and the person I am now today is because of you.  I can’t imagine a time without you in my life.   Maybe it’s because deep down, I always knew you.  I might not have been able to picture your face in my mind, and I didn’t know your name, but you were always there with me, even before you were born.  You are a dream come true for me, a dream I had since I was a little girl, about the same age you are now.  You are my buddy, my little pal, my friend, but more importantly, my son.   No matter how big and strong you grow, you will always, ALWAYS be my baby boy.
