6 day old baby girl ~ ivory and pink! {fort mill newborn photos}

July baby boom continues!! I actually heard that the maternity centers had a record number of births the first week in July and I BELIEVE IT. We had another amazing newborn session yesterday. Precious 6 day old Baby J came to my studio and she was an angel! When I had her laying on the blankets she was doing the sweetest things with her hands, just gesturing around her cheeks and decolettage like a little lady <3  Her parents are so in love with their girl! Mom has light ivory and pinks in the nursery so we had fun with those colors in her fabrics! Here are a some sneak photos from our time together.  Enjoy!

14 day old baby deuce ~ the smith family {charlotte north carolina newborn photographer}

I had the honor of meeting the Smith family yesterday and photographing the newest member, Steve Smith Jr, or more affectionately known as Baby Deuce. I was so excited when Angie contacted me and asked me to capture this special time for them. I have been looking forward to their newborn session for months! The family of 6 came to my studio and they just adore their new little guy. His fluffy hair is the cutest!! He slipped us a few smiles during the shoot but I was only able to grab the tail end of one. :) Congrats to the Smith family!! They are truly the kindest family you would ever hope to meet <3  Enjoy these sneak peek photos from our time together!

7 day old baby perfection to the MAX ~ family of 3 {charlotte nc newborn photos}

Such a sweet sweet newborn session yesterday! This guy is 7 day old baby perfection to the MAX. And actually, that’s his name ;) His parents are so awesome and I knew that their little guy would be just as awesome after meeting them for their maternity shoot. His mama has his nursery decor in yellow and gray with teal accents. She also had a special request for him that made me smile. Who remembers “Where the Wild Things Are“? That’s right. Little Max. King of the Wild Things. One of the best childhood books, evah. So we played dress up and I kinda want to buy this costume for my boys now. :) Not your run of the mill crazy looking knit baby prop creations, but really a beautifully made piece. Max totally rocked it (of course). His mom and dad are smitten (of course). <3 Here are some sneak peeks from our session.  Enjoy!

july baby boom! sweet boy 10 days young ~ family of 3 {fort mill studio newborn photography}

July has been crazy! There was a big baby boom right around the 4th of July and my week has been booked solid. Babies have a way of showing up whenever they want like that ;) The one exception seems to be this sweet baby boy, who decided to come ON his due date! At 10 days young he was a dreeeam at his newborn session – I got lots of sleepy photos and he was cozy as could be at the studio. I love his squishy cheeks and those sweet baby rolls! His mom has been using blues and gray for his decor so I pulled out several combinations that would work with their home. Gray is always one of my favorite colors to use <3 Here are some sneak peeks from our session.  Enjoy!

august birthday due ~ family of 3 {ethereal maternity photography charlotte nc}

This gorgeous mama-to-be and I had to re-schedule her maternity session 4 times due to weather. FOUR! My calendar has been insane the past 2 months and I was so scared her baby boy would show up before we could meet…but fortunately, mother nature was just saving this *perfect* evening for us instead :) I am so happy for this family of 3. Their bundle of joy is due on my birthday so I’m especially excited to meet the little guy <3 Mama came solo to my studio a little early to have Lindsay style her hair before the shoot. I absolutely love the look she chose!  Once dad and big brother arrived we began with some studio fabric shots before going up to the gardens. Big Brother L is SO excited for his little bro to arrive. He was the cutest and just loved kissing his mama’s baby belly :) Of course we wrapped up the shoot with a few maternity photos in the water. The warm light was reflecting off of several boats watching the sun set last night – love that touch of sparkle! Can’t wait to see this family again for their newborn photos <3  Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

Yesterday we had another amazing newborn session. Gorgeous 10 day old Baby D came to my studio and she was a little doll! Her mama is AWESOME and had all of my prep instructions checked off when she arrived :) In turn our shoot went so well! Baby D’s room decor is a mix of coral and peach with mint accents. Her skin is beauuuuuutiful and she has the cutest little freckle on the end of her pinky finger <3  I am so glad that I was able to capture this special time for the D family! Here are a some sneak photos from our time together.  Enjoy!

bright eyed baby girl at 9 days old ~ family of 4 {north charlotte newborn photographer}

I had been anxiously waiting to hear from Baby E’s mother…this bright eyed baby girl arrived almost 2 weeks after her due date! Her parents also kept the gender a surprise so I was so excited to hear they had another girl! We had the most stunning maternity session and this new mama is simply glowing now that Baby E is here. Her big sister is SO proud and was the sweetest girl at the shoot. I just adore sibling shots, there is something about them that just seems magical to me. Baby girl did not want to miss a thing at her newborn session. She stayed nice and alert while she was here so I was able to capture those big beautiful eyes of hers! All her dark fluffy hair is too precious. But she was yawning by the end so I bet she slept well last night ;) Congrats to the E family! Here are a some sneak photos from our time together.  Enjoy!

expecting a girl! sweet couple at the gardens {charlotte nc maternity photography}

Last evening I met this expecting couple for their maternity session and they were just too CUTE. They are having a baby girl and could not be more excited! Mama-to-be has the best smile!! And of course she is also sporting the tiniest little baby bump ever. :) I love the classic fabric wraps we started with at my studio - so simple and timeless! Once we moved outdoors to the gardens the sun was warm and perfect. I got to try out my new fine art lens that arrived yesterday and I loooooove it  <3 After the gardens we finished up in the lake. We had such a fun time and I just adore the colors and settings from this shoot!! Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

precious baby c is 1 ~ brotherly love {lake wylie child photographer}

July is off to a craaazy busy start and I am so glad I got to see one of my favorite families last night! They have lived around the corner from us for several years now and our boys are about the same age. They love playing together and its been great to have them so close! Sadly they are moving soon and we are going to miss them a lot :( I love that I was able to do this special 1 year shoot before they go! Baby C’s newborn session was one of my favorites from last year – in fact, a few shots of him are still decorating my studio <3 His mama brought some precious outfits for the brothers and the bloomers she had were the CUTEST. Both boys have big puppy dog eyes and the most gorgeous curly hair! We tried to get a few photos of the boys in the studio, but at age 1 and walking it’s a little bit like herding cats… I caught some sweet head shots and then we moved outside to the beach. I was so happy that his mom told me she wanted some photos in the lake too! There is nothing sweeter than a bare bummed baby and his beautiful mama in the water, add the warm, golden light just before sunset – it was perfection. Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

july 4th fireworks on lake wylie ~ independence day 2014 {charlotte professional photographer}

Anyone who has followed me for a while knows that I am slightly obsessed with photographing fireworks on the 4th of July. It was first just part of a technical challenge that I set for myself, but every year that I shoot the show I just become more amazed with the lights, colors, movement, reflection and beauty of each shot. There is a big element of randomness to it because of the shooting method (and the fact that I have no clue what is about to go off)! I guess it feels a little like splattering paint against a canvas and seeing what results. Compared to my portrait work where I typically have a specific idea or vision, photographing fireworks is very freeing.

The weather yesterday could not have been more perfect (even with the threat of Hurricane Arthur off the east coast ;))! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!! Enjoy!
