baby girl N ~ sweet dreams at 8 days new {newborn photographer waxhaw nc}

Gah! I’ve been anxiously waiting to meet this sweet baby girl…she went 11 days past her due date!! But at 8 days new she was a total dream baby at her session Thursday :) She and her family came to my studio for her newborn photos and she was absolutely perfect!  <3 I had so much fun with her awesome parents for their maternity photos and I just knew she was going to be a fantastic baby  <3 Baby N’s nursery is a gorgeous mix of mint, pink, white and warm golden ivory so we had splashes of those colors in her set ups. We also used one of the same blankets from her mama’s fabric wrap shots at the maternity shoot. My clients seriously make the most gorgeous babies <3 Congrats N family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

6 month old baby girl ~ holiday photos {cornelius child photographer}

It was so awesome to see this family again! Baby girl is one of my newborn clients and now she is 6 months old – can’t believe it! We did a 6 month/holiday session and had so much fun. Their sweet girl is just mastering sitting up and we had some cute wobbles while we were outside :) She loved being on her belly but (like most babies at this age) was more interested in the grass and leaves than me <3 We met at the perfect time and I love all the warm winter light! Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

What is a Breakout Session exactly?

A cross between a webinar and a workshop, a Breakout Session includes a downloadable set of materials (such as PDFs, videos, and/or actions or presets) as well as access to an interactive online forum to share and discuss the Breakout topic with other registered students.

More details on what the material is about:

Beth Wade is known for her classically stunning photography and for her ability to craft a dreamy, sensual and highly personal experience for every client. She weaves her artistic influences into her work, and she’ll share how she incorporates her love for other genres (including watercolor painting and digital art) into these sessions. Beth uses multiple light sources to craft her classic, dreamy images, and she shares how she uses both natural and studio lighting in her work while still maintaining a consistent feel to all of her images. Beth also shows you how she creates custom art by hand editing each photo and how she sets her work apart in a trendy world.”

christmas holiday photos ~ dreamy light {rock hill sc baby photographer}

It’s always a huge honor to have clients come back to me year after year! I was especially excited to do this holiday session for one of my recent newborn families. Their little guy is so adorable! He has the most beautiful dark eyes and has grown some killer lashes over the past few months(why do the boys always get the best lashes?!)! His mama wanted to do a holiday shoot so we met at a Christmas tree farm next to Camp Thunderbird by my neighborhood. The weather was amazing – perfect almost 70 degree evening! Plus the warm winter light was just dreamy and magical <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

autumn holiday photos ~ the decoud family {charlotte nc baby photographer}

We had another gorgeous autumn holiday session last night! It was so much fun to meet the DeCoud family.  They are friends with some of my favorite clients and I was excited to take photos for them this season. Their little girl Peyton is 19 months old and the CUTEST thing. She has the sweetest demeanor yet is totally fearless :) We met at my studio and did some shots there before going outside. The weather was perrrfect! They brought their two pups Lester & Leela too and Peyton was so precious playing with them. In between giving them hugs she was running, jumping, spinning around and throwing leaves – pretty much just loving life <3  I’m so honored to capture these images for their family!! Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

baby major turns 1 year old! ~ the tolbert family {north carolina baby photographer}

I was so excited to see this awesome family again last night! It is hard to believe that little Major just turned 1 year old! Time has flown by since we met for their maternity and newborn photos last year – look how big this sweet guy is now!! When Shianette contacted me to set up a date we weren’t sure if he would be walking or not but he is totally mobile and on the move :) We also didn’t know what kind of shape Mike would be in for the session, but we are all thankful he is back and better than new. We started out with a few photos of the kids in my studio and then went outdoors to enjoy the gorgeous autumn weather! I stole collected several bags of the prettiest leaves in my neighborhood yesterday for them to play in and the whole family had too much fun! Big sister Mikeala was all about throwing leaves and tackling her daddy. So so cute <3 I’m so honored to capture Major’s 1 year milestone for the Tolbert family! He is already a little heartbreaker so watch out ;) Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

6 day old handsome baby boy {newborn photography concord}

I met the sweetest little guy yesterday! He was only 6 days old and his family came to my studio for his newborn photos. The last time I saw them was for their beautiful maternity shoot <3 Baby S’s parents are so awesome and laid back that I knew he would be the same. He slept the whole shoot and was such a good guy! The only thing he insisted on was having his hand up right next to his cheek – so CUTE! My oldest son used to do the exact same thing as a newborn :) I love capturing those sweet little mannerisms babies have as newborns – some they even grow out of so quickly <3 Congrats to the S family! Here are a few sneak peeks from our session – Enjoy!

autumn maternity ~ expecting identical twin boys! {lancaster sc pregnancy photographer}

There is something in the water because my year has been filled with twins! I have been crazy excited to meet this beautiful family for their maternity shoot! They came to my studio all the way from Lancaster and we had an absolutely gorgeous session. The day was sunny, crisp and pretttty chilly. Ok, it was REALLY cold! But this stunning mama-to-be was amazing and rocked every shot we took. She came a little early to have her hair and makeup styled right before we started. She looked absolutely radiant! I think they are hoping those twin boys have her bright blue eyes too ;) We started with some fabric wraps and then bundled up to go outside. The leaves around here are insane right now – golden yellows, reds and a touch of green left made for the perfect backdrop. Not too much longer before we’ll get to meet the boys in her tiny little belly! I can’t wait!! <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!

baby wade 2015 ~ fallen leaves and princess dress {lake wylie maternity photographer}

Time is flying by this pregnancy! Autumn is in full force and the leaves are changing and falling. I am just around the corner from my third trimester…what?! I have been forcing myself to take extra time to rest, listen to my body (nap when the boys nap! if they nap…ha) and use the weekends for time with my family. As a photographer that truly LOVES what I do it is easy to fall into a cycle of working all.the.time. Like, 7 days a week either shooting or processing…saying no is very hard for me! But my family comes first <3 Plus I knew that if I didn’t set boundaries I would never have any maternity photos of my own baby! Our LAST baby. So, now on the weekends I limit my work time and LOVE the time I get to be with my boys. It has given me a much better work/life balance and also given me time to do things with them and for myself (like taking my own maternity photos ;))!

After the last maternity shoot I did with the boys I had this amazing emotional connection to the photos – the wow factor in full effect and I just could not stop looking at them. So in LOVE! It was the first time that I felt exactly like I think my clients feel when they see their photos <3 When it comes to babies and bellies, time doesn’t wait. I hear so often from others that they wish they had done maternity or newborn photos, or capturing any of those important milestones. Most people regret things they *don’t* do versus things they do so I’m trying to prevent that with Baby Wade #3! I’m planning to do my own maternity and newborn photos for him/her but am VERY excited to have one of my talented photographer friends do the birth photos for me. :)

I decided that I’m going to do “seasons” for the baby’s room – my maternity photos in the lake for summer, these photos from last night for autumn, another shoot for winter in Jan/Feb (I reeeeally hope we get some SNOW!!), and then one when he/she arrives for spring.

Last night we also did a few family photos that I’ll use for our holiday cards but I also wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery and fallen leaves for some fun photos with the boys and baby belly. The boys weren’t as excited to throw leaves as they were to get in the lake with me ;) BUT it was enough to bribe them into doing the shoot. For the maternity photos I used a full swing lavender gown accented by a very special belt that was given to me by my husband Brian’s grandmother, Gram. The dress is SO much fun and just made for swishing and twirling! When I put it on my youngest son Charlie came up to me and said, “Mommy, you look like Cinderella!”! Yep, I kinda did feel like a princess after that :)

I have to give photo credit to my sweet husband again for being my trigger man on the maternity photos! He is a saint to humor me and my crazy ideas <3 Here are some of my favorites from last night. Enjoy!
