Back-to-School Minis and Baby Bundles Birthday Bash | Priscilla Baierlein Photography {Lexington, KY Child & Family Photographer}

Hello again! I cannot believe that it's already back to school time. It'll be no time at all before we are sending Steff to school. I'm sure it will be bitter sweet, just like everything else with little ones. I know how proud each of you are, maybe a little happy to get a routine back, but sad at the same time. Each year of school means they're growing up even more...getting closer to high school, closer to their drivers license...their first date, prom, graduation, college...I think that's what makes it all so bitter sweet. Back-to-school minis were this past weekend and they couldn't have gone better. I saw some old faces (fyi...I celebrate and also get sad when I see my client littles growing up too) and some new. We did things a little differently this year. Not only did I work with the wonderful Baby Bundles, but to benefit God's Pantry, each child brought a backpack full of nonperishable goods for their backpack program. It was such an honor to work with both Baby Bundles and God's Pantry.

In case you haven't heard, Baby Bundles is celebrating their birthday with a huge BIRTHDAY BASH AND CELEBRATION this Saturday at the Mall at Lexington Green. The Mall at Lexington Green is also celebrating it's Grand Re-opening the same day! There will be tons of door prizes, including a GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR ONE MINI SESSION with me and an adorable little child's sectional that you will be dying over when you see it. Baby Bundles and the Mall at Lexington Green will be having tons of activities, including, meet Tinkerbell, balloon animals, Petunia Picklebottom Trunk Show, Circus with Aerial Acrobats, Circus Workshops, and live music all day. Baby Bundles will be giving 20% off the whole day also! What a perfect time to come out, have some fun, pick up something for your fall pictures, and possibly win an awesome door prize. See more at their facebook page HERE.  Be sure to look on the walls at some of my most favorite images from the past few years!

Now...for a bit of a sneak peek from this past weekend...

My most favorite picture of all (she was prompted...I promise)...

The next little dude you'll also be seeing in another sneak peek from the fair (yes...I'm going a little backwards. I still have my vacation post to do! :))

Here's a quick pic of drop off. I felt a little silly asking to take a picture, but I was so proud of all my little clients and their parents. I had to share. :) To read more about God's Pantry's Backpack Program and how you can donate, head on over to their website at http://www.godspantry.org/aboutus/our-programs-and-services/the-backpack-program/.
