Oh hi there blog world! Yes, it’s me, I am alive! You will be seeing lots of fun postings in the coming weeks – so much to write about! As you can see, I’m writing from a NEWLY updated blogsite. It might undergo a few minor enhancements, but I love that it’s clean and easy to navigate! Plus did you notice there are now pictures of MYSELF? Yes, I went on the other side of the lens, so you can now see who Alicia White exactly is! If you go to the “alicia” section, there are a few more! Lauren and I had fun capturing each others images for our sites while we were at a photography conference in Las Vegas. I promise, there will be more on this later! For now, I wanted to highlight a really special family. Patrick and I went to college together and were team leaders on a Metanoia retreat my senior year at The University of Dayton. We quickly became friends and spent the majority of senior year attending similar outings and get togethers – looking at college pictures, many of them include both of us! Being close, I was one of the first people to see the engagement ring he later put on Sarah’s hand and attended their wedding in Georgia a year later! After graduation, he moved to Georgia and I bounced around between Ohio, Virginia, and now North Carolina. With the passing time, we stayed connected through facebook and christmas calls, but haven’t actually gotten to catch up/see each other in FOUR years! I recently attended/worked a Jasmine Star workshop (The Fix) in Atlanta and I contacted Sarah and Pat to see if I could spend some time with them, help out with their ADORABLE newborn and 2 year old, and capture some family portraits! Thank you to the both of them for opening up your home to me – especially with a newborn baby! I had so much fun catching up and seeing how our lives have changed in four VERY QUICK years. I am extremely thankful that social media, facebook, and phone calls are so readily available to us – so it was very easy to catch up like we had seen each other a week before! Now that I live in Charlotte, I’m hoping for more trips to Atlanta to spend time with you and your little ones! Hannah-Kate was born at nearly 10 pounds – isn’t she beautiful? Sarah delivered her naturally – now THAT is a champ. Here are just a few of the memories I got to capture at such a special time in their lives. Enjoy!
Before I post the new portraits, I wanted to post a few point-and-shoot pics from YEARS ago – some of these are 2006, where did time GO!?
World, Meet Hannah-Kate.
Her big sister Kara! (who loves her little sister SO MUCH)
