autumn baby girl ~ couple sunset shoot {maternity photographer south charlotte nc}

I can not believe that it is almost NOVEMBER. Autumn is coming in full force and the cooler weather is finally making its way through the south! We had such a fun maternity session with this awesome couple. They found me through another fabulous client of mine and I just knew we would click instantly. They have a baby girl on the way and couldn’t be any more smitten (with her AND each other ;) ).  We met at my studio and then went outdoors during the golden hour. Baby girl’s daddy is a talented musician and I loooove his tattoos! Absolutely incredible. Mama-to-be has been admiring the lake photos she saw in my portfolio and I told her I was up for anything…why should summer babies have all the fun?!  Well, not only is she kind and beautiful but this mama is totally fearless. We were out in the lake and the chilly wind was whipping around us like crazy, but she just kept smiling :) I absolutely love how these images turned out! And I love making clients dream photos a reality <3 Can’t wait to meet their baby girl for her newborn photos <3  Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

baby wade 2015 ~ autumn sunset with my boys {lake wylie maternity photographer}

So. :) I posted the announcement on my facebook page a few weeks ago but wanted to share our exciting news on my blog too – we are expecting Baby Wade #3 on March 1, 2015! My schedule has been so hectic lately that I haven’t had time to attempt any maternity photos (yes, soooo ironic!). But I have been **dreaming** about this photo of me with my boys in the lake, and also struggling with how I could make the vision a reality. Of course, it’s not getting any warmer… and today I realized that if I didn’t just stop and DO it that pretty soon it would be too cold to get everyone in the water. So tonight we had an impromptu photo shoot: I ran out and bought a curling iron, gave my husband a crash course in exposure and focus, bribed the boys with a huge cookie and we nailed it. The best part was the boys faces looked like Christmas morning when I told them that they got to get in the lake with me – apparently photos with mommy have clearly NOT been this much fun ;) My amazing husband worked my camera like a pro. <3 And my curls lasted approximately 45 minutes, but just long enough to watch the sun go down on a gorgeous autumn evening.

My heart is so full when I look at this photo and I can not explain how happy it makes me. :) I am 21 weeks now and we are all so thrilled to meet Baby #3 when he/she arrives this spring! I am getting *shamelessly* excited to take his/her newborn photos too <3  

Here is my most favorite maternity photo, ever – truly a dream come true. Enjoy!

autumn sunset shoot ~ baby girl on the way {waxhaw maternity photographer}

GAH! I am so excited to share these photos! Last evening I met the sweetest couple for their maternity session. They found me through an amazing friend of mine and I am completely honored to capture this special time for them! They have a baby girl on the way, due this autumn. The weather and scenery is just perfect this time of year! Not to mention the SUNSETS ;)  We met at my studio and mama-to-be had her makeup done by the talented Erin Ashley right before the shoot. We did some silhouettes in the studio then went up to the gardens. There are so many areas still in bloom and the sky around them was insaaane. We wrapped up with a warm October sunset on the lake. And when I say warm, I don’t mean the water…yes, we braved the chilly lake but it was.so.worth.it. With the days getting shorter we barely caught the last breath of day but it was so dreamy, totally magical <3 Their maternity session is going to be part of a special project that I have coming out soon too….can’t wait to share some behind the scenes of this incredible shoot! Loved meeting them and I will be thrilled to meet their baby girl for her newborn photos <3  Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

He and his family came to my studio for his newborn photos and their shoot is going to be featured in a special project I have coming up…(more details soon! ;))! I am SO glad that things worked out because I knew after meeting his parents at their maternity session that he would be an awesome baby <3 This little guy was a champ and slept the entire time!

sweet baby girl N ~ so happy at 8 days old {newborn photographer tega cay}

Ohmigoodness. I’m wrapping up another baby boom and what a sweet baby girl I met yesterday! She and her family came to my studio for her newborn photos and she was a dream baby  <3 At only 8 days old she is already melting hearts. I’ve been excited to meet her since her parents came for their maternity photos and I just knew she was going to be a cutie  <3 Baby N’s nursery is a gorgeous mix of aqua coral and watermelon so we had splashes of those colors in her set ups. We also used the same white rose blanket from the maternity shoot. Once I got her settled down and cozy she started flashing smiles at us :) So glad that I caught one! My clients seriously make the happiest babies <3 Congrats N family! Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

14 day old baby boy B {newborn photographer fort mill}

I got to meet another precious baby boy yesterday! His family came to my studio for his newborn photos and we had a great session <3 His parents had a beautiful maternity shoot so I have been so excited to photograph their little guy! When they arrived he was sleepy and such a good baby for all the family and parent shots. I can usually get through those and my floor set ups before it’s time for a bottle and we allllmost made it :) His mom and dad said he’s a good eater and he WAS. :) After his belly was full again he dozed off to a dreamy state and slept like a champ for the rest of his photos. <3 Congrats to the B family!!

itty bitty baby girl S ~ 12 days old {newborn photos charlotte}

Yesterday was one of the best newborn sessions I have had! This awesome family of 4 welcomed their baby girl a week and a half early and she is one of the most tiny, itty bitty babies I have photographed! We swaddled her up and she was absolutely precious in a tiny lilac wrap. Her dark hair is gorgeous and it looks like she has the perfect pixie haircut at only 12 days old :) Her big sis was the sweeetest and kept wanting to give her little sis hugs and kisses. Only sisters for less than 2 weeks, but definitely going to be best friends for life <3 At the very end of the shoot Baby S started flashing us some gorgeous newborn smiles. I love being able to capture those fleeting moments! Congrats S family, she is a little doll! Here are a some sneak photos from our time together.  Enjoy!

sweet cheeked baby boy ~ 11 days old {newborn photographer south charlotte}

I got to meet the cutest, sweet cheeked baby boy yesterday! His family was a referral from one of my very favorite clients and I have been looking forward to this session for a long time! They came to my studio for his newborn photos and we had a great shoot <3 Baby B’s older sister and brother came for a few photos and they were super proud and well behaved. Sibling shots are my favorite! Throughout the session Baby B kept making the most adorable kissy lips that kept me smiling the whole time. He was such a good baby and at the end he was totally content to lay there with his cheeks just squished as could be…precious!! <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

identical twin boys! 16 day old brothers {greensboro-charlotte nc newborn photographer}

I can’t get over how sweet these identical newborn twin boys are!! These precious twin brothers came to my studio all the way from Greensboro. I am SO honored to be able to capture this special time for them and their awesome family! Their parents are the kindest couple and they are doing an AH-mazing job with these two boys. For twin shoots I start the usual way with the family photo, then mom-baby and dad-baby. They totally nailed every shot :) I like having several set ups for the siblings together after that. Then do some individual poses of each twin. They have a nautical themed nursery and I adore the blues, grays and pop of red we incorporated yesterday! So happy for these new parents and their happy, healthy little guys <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!

happy smiley baby girl C ~ 11 days old {newborn photography south charlotte nc}

Yesterday was one of the sweetest, craziest newborn sessions I have had :) Why? Well, I had a precious, happy, smiley 11 day old baby girl prove me WRONG! <3 One of the first things that I ask clients is what specific image requests they have, just to make sure that we are on the same page and are a good fit. So Baby C’s mama said that she would love to have a shot of her daughter smiling (like she saw on my website) and with her eyes open (also on my website). I felt a little bad telling her that the likelihood that we’d get BOTH was pretty much slim to none because babies this young really only smile in their sleep, so it wasn’t something I could prompt…I would just have to try and catch one IF Baby C decided to do it on her own. Since smiles happens while newborns are asleep, she wouldn’t have their eyes open either. WELL. At the very end of her session, Baby C pulled out a wild card on me :) I had swaddled her and was trying to get a photo of her with her eyes open but instead she went into this sleepy/wake stage where she was dreaming (and smiling!) but also flashing her eyes open when we called out to her. She was so expressive that I couldn’t help but create a storyboard preview of the series of faces she was making…little smiles, and smirks, and just happy newborn dreams :) It was so awesome and I’m SO happy that her mama got her wish <3 Here are a some sneak photos from our time together.  Enjoy!
