We’ve already been over the fact that I love lists. It’s the “trying to fake being a type-A personality” in me coming out. But even my to-do lists are disorganized. I often misplace them. I often have several going at a time. And you know what’s on them right now? To do: blog the past 10 sessions.
Yes, that 10 brand new babies, beautiful families, and adorable children that are still waiting to grace the blog. Luckily all of these clients have already seen their galleries and in many cases received their orders, too, but I still just have to share these adorable little ones.
So tonight I prepped this sweet little guy’s images for the blog while listening to Justin Bieber (insert record rewind sound here along with gasps of disbelief). Yes, I said it. While editing to Justin Bieber…willingly. As in I have my own Justin Bieber Pandora station. And my kids are both asleep and I’m the only one up listening to it, so they can’t be used as my excuse. I’m serious–I actually really like the Biebs. I love that I can sing along to all his songs since I apparently have the singing voice of a young boy (but not even as good–it’s sad, I know). And I love how listening to his music reminds me of my Jacob singing along and doing his version of hip-hop dancing.
And I love how just as I was getting these images ready for the blog his “Born to Be Somebody” song came on. Quite fitting, don’t you think? I seriously always think about that when I’m driving to my studio for newborn sessions. I think about these beautiful brand new lives that I get to meet and how they each are going to grow up into amazing people. How each one of them is different–their personalities, their talents, their dreams. But they are all born to be somebody. Someone unique because they all are uniquely created for their very own purpose.
And so it might seem cheesy that I listen to a teenage pop star while I edit, but I’m so thankful for the reminder tonight. These precious babes are all born to be somebody. And I can only imagine what great things they will all do.
