happy 1 year ~ sweet cheeks {fort mill baby photographer}

Last night I got to see this sweet cheeked baby girl for her 1 year session! I saw her family of 3 was this time last year when we had her newborn session. I am so glad I could capture this milestone for them too! We started out in my studio but (as things go with first babies who are already walking) it didn’t last too long before she was ready to get out and stretch her legs. I did catch some sweet smiles and she even started dancing, clapping her hands and blowing kisses! Thankfully the crazy summer weather held out and we had a gorgeous sunny night! We went up to the gardens and then came back down to the lake. Baby J was SO GOOD.  I also got to use a new lens for the session so I have added a few more sneaks than usual <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

smiley 14 day old baby girl {lake wylie newborn photographer}

The happiest baby girl came to  my studio for her newborn photos yesterday! She was 14 days new and such a little doll. I love catching newborn smiles and she flashed several for me during our time together! When mom and dad arrived with her they weren’t sure if they wanted to be in any photos – I can absolutely relate to the feeling…with a newborn, just getting out of the door in one piece is an accomplishment ;) But they did jump in for a few and I hope they will be glad to have these in the future <3 Congrats C Family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

sweet alice jane ~ our girl is 5 months old {lake wylie baby photographer}

Our sweet Alice Jane turned 5 months old yesterday! ;) I’ve been burning the candle at both ends since she was born and planned to take a little time to rest this month…but of course, the universe threw some major water damage on our plate. Our water company broke a pipe and it flooded the boys room, which means they are sleeping in my office. Yay. Five people in a two bedroom house? Yay. Much obliged, universe.

I have taken Alice’s newborn1 month2 month3 month and 4 month photos, along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 5 months! Some of her milestones are:

She has changed so much already! Here is our baby girl:

13 day old baby girl ~ pretty in pink {matthews newborn photographer}

Yesterday I met another little firecracker baby girl! Born on 4th of July and so small and sweet. I’ve been looking forward to her newborn photos since meeting her adorable parents at their maternity session a few weeks ago. Baby J’s mama is absolutely stunning and I love the photo we got of them together <3 They brought an incredible sari for us to use too – I love gorgeous fabric! The colors from this session are so feminine and pretty. I even caught a big smile from her :) I’m excited to share these sneaks! Congrats J Family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

born on the 4th of july ~ 10 day old baby girl {lake wylie newborn photography}

I got to snuggle with the chubbiest 10 day old baby girl yesterday! She was born on the 4th of July and came into the world with a bang. :) Her mama brought her to my studio for her newborn photos and I loved hearing about her birth story. Less than a half hour after they got to the hospital Baby G arrived (all 9 lbs of her!). This is sweet girl #3 for their family and they were all so excited to meet her at their maternity session a few weeks ago. We put all the focus on her at the shoot too. Her nursery has gray, pink and green so we used those tones in out set ups. I also loooove the gorgeous heirloom gown that her mama brought – it’s been passed down over many generations and I am glad we could incorporate it into their photos <3 Congrats W Family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

gorgeous baby bump ~ little boy on the way {lake wylie maternity photographer}

How is it already mid-July?! This summer is flying by and yesterday I got to see one of my favorite couples for a maternity session. The last time I saw them was about a year ago for their 2nd baby boy’s 1st birthday photos. Their family used to live right around the corner and we miss them so much! I could not have been MORE thrilled when I got the message that baby #3 (another sweet boy!) was on the way. :) Since they were traveling in from Kentucky for their photos we decided to meet a bit earlier than I typically do. How gorgeous is this little mama with her 2nd trimester baby bump?!  We started at my studio and had so much fun. After that we went down to the lake to wrap things up. Congrats again C family – we loved seeing you and are so happy for Baby #3!!  <3  Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

family of 3 ~ sleepy baby boy {newborn photographer south park}

Yesterday I met another new family of 3! They arrived at my studio with their sleepy baby boy and we had a fantastic session. I’m so happy they contacted me after another one of my amazing clients referred them! I knew they would be great to work with :) Baby C’s gorgeous mama loves soft neutrals so my photography style was a perfect fit. She brought some soft, plush stuffed animals from his nursery in pretty creams and beige that we used as inspiration for his newborn photos. Ivory, gray and tan with white are absolutely perfect. The family also brought a stunning quilt and pillow sham made by their baby’s late grandmother so we incorporated those in the session too. Congrats C family! Here are a few favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

baby boy number 2 ~ summer pregnancy {ballantyne maternity photographer}

Last night I met this adorable family for their maternity session. They have baby boy #2 on the way, due this summer!  We met at my studio so mama-to-be could get her hair and makeup done first. She is gorgeous and absolutely glowing! After some indoor photos we went to walk around the gardens. Their little guy O just turned 2 and loves to be on the MOVE. We got a few family shots taken and then let him take his shoes off…he was in heaven. Nothing like feeling the grass between your toes :) He is definitely going to be a protective big brother. We wrapped up back down at the dock and in the lake. Thankfully the rain held off for us! We had so much fun. I love how these turned out! <3 So excited to see this family again for their baby boy’s newborn photos <3  Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

precious 1 month old baby girl ~ family of 3 {newborn photographer charlotte nc}

I really do have the best clients <3 The highest compliment they can give me is to refer me to a friend and I do pretty much anything to accommodate them into my crazy schedule! This new family of 3 are friends with another awesome pair of new parents I did newborn photos for a few weeks ago. Their precious baby girl just turned 1 month old! Even though she was a bit outside my usual 2 week window she was a great baby at her session :) For already 4 weeks old she is still tiny, but looooong. She liked being snuggled up so we kept her wrapped and cozy. I love all her fluffy hair!! So soft and perfect combined with these dreamy set ups. At the end she woke up and gave me the cutest wide-eyed stare. What a doll. Congrats M family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

happy 11 day old baby girl ~ family of 3 {huntersville newborn photographer}

Every now and then I will have a session where it feels like a little magic happens…anytime I can catch a newborn smile it’s pretty amazing. This happy 11 day old baby girl and her family of 3 came to my studio and she was a dream  <3 We usually begin with family photos and I during my favorite shot (with dad giving mom a kiss) their precious girl flashed a smile the same time as her mama – absolutely perfect. Baby V came several weeks early and still had the most gorgeous head full of hair! She was so relaxed and snuggly. I loved meeting her and capturing this special time for her parents. Congrats V family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!
