playing in the rain {north carolina family photographer}

It is such an amazing feeling to have clients come back to me year after year. I have had so much fun watching this awesome family grow! Every year I make a special trip back to Durham to go to my rheumatologist and capture milestone photos for this family of 4.  So given the situation we really only have one date that we can meet around my appointment time…in past years we have had a few scares of rain but we never got caught in it. Until now :-p On the way to the Eno I saw some clouds rolling in but was hoping (like just about every session I have had recently!) that they blow over us. About 10 minutes after we got started with the session the wind started blowing like craaaazy! You can see all the leaves started whirling around and it was a few minutes of happy chaos for the kids😉 Then, the bottom fell out. Luckily we had a nice covered porch to take shelter under for a bit while we waited it out. Thankfully it let up a bit and we were able to get some sweet shots before the kids went out and got to play in the rain.🙂 Loved seeing yall again S family!! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together. Enjoy!

surprise twins due autumn {matthews maternity photography}

Ohmigoodness. I am in love with this maternity session! This adorable couple is having twins due in autumn and they are beyond excited. They are waiting to find out the babies genders too – so.much.fun! We met last night at my studio in Lake Wylie for hair and makeup before the shoot. The weather this summer has been insane and sure enough…while mama was getting prettied up it started to rain. UGH. Out of nowhere! Again. Thankfully the rain came and stayed away just long enough for us to be able to get some beautiful outdoor photos! The sky was crazy and I love the deep colors that come from the muted natural lighting. Once we got back we went to the lake and got the most incredible blue sunset (before the rain came back again :-p ). We wrapped up with some more studio photos after the lake. I LOVE the gorgeous maternity gown mama brought with her!! Of course now I will be adding it to my studio collection too. :D Congrats W Family!! I had a fantastic time with y’all and can’t wait to see you again soon!! Here are a few favorite photos, as well as a “moving portrait” video from our time together <3  Enjoy!

baby girl makes family of 3 {plaza midwood newborn photographer}

This is such a special newborn session. Baby girl’s grandmother in New Jersey gifted these photos to her son and daughter-in-law. So I have been anxiously waiting to meet them for months! It’s an *honor* to hear that, after researching online,  I was chosen as the “best” photographer to capture this special time for them.❤ The new parents came from their beautiful home in Plaza Midwood to spend the morning in my studio on Lake Wylie. Their daughter is absolutely adorable and such a happy girl! We were getting ready for the family photos when Baby W started flashing me some smiles. I caught the first one but ohmigoodness she had so many more for us today (see how many you can count below ;))! She came a little later than her due date and has the chubbiest cheeks ~ my favorite. We kept her set ups with bright white and ivory neutrals. I love adding touches of feminine fabrics and dainty tiebacks with little girls. I am also loooving the video footage from today (taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – hopefully baby’s grandparents will also love to see their granddaughter’s precious breaths in motion as well. Congrats again W family!! Here are several favorite photos and video highlights from our time together – Enjoy!

autumn baby girl due {rock hill maternity photographer}

This awesome family is expecting a baby girl this autumn and they are thrilled! We had another fun maternity session last Friday (I’m behind on posting because I turned a year older on Saturday…getting old is rough! ;))! They came from their home in Rock Hill up to my home studio in Lake Wylie. I met them through our mutual friend Kymm, who also came to do mother-daughter hair and makeup before the shoot! I am absolutely loving these glowy summer mamas with fresh faces and perfectly tossed curls – absolutely gorgeous! We started up to the gardens because we had a little late start with back to school open houses. It was H.O.T.! We got some precious images of their daughter J kissing her mommy’s belly and I love the family photos too. Then we came back to catch the last little bit of sunlight on the lake. After the sun went down daddy took daughter home and left mama with me to play in the studio. She loves bold colors and this sapphire dress looks stunning on her! We also incorporated a special blanket the family has to snuggle baby girl. Congrats M Family!! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together <3  Enjoy!

welcome baby girl ~ family of 5 {fort mill newborn photographer}

I’m loving this baby girl’s newborn session!! Her new family of 5 opted for an on-location session at their home in Fort Mill (instead of the usual, my studio) and it was great! I’ve been so excited for them because, like my own family, they have two boys and now a sweet little girl🙂 The boys were super excited at their maternity session.  I love seeing how older siblings react to their new baby. The younger son has definitely taken to his new sister and he was the one who wanted to hold her and snuggle with her. Too precious!! She was sleepy and cozy the whole time. In the video you can see how relaxed she was. I love seeing her breathing so sweetly. Even when she startled she went right back to sleep. I love the pretty white fabrics we used along with the white backdrop for the family photos. I also got to meet baby girl’s grandparents and get a three generation photo- always my favorite!!❤ I’m honored I got to capture this special time for this family! Congrats C family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

expecting a baby boy {north charlotte maternity photos}

It was so great to see this sweet family again! They are expecting a baby boy this summer and came from their home on North Charlotte down to my home studio in Lake Wylie. The last time I saw them was for their precious baby girl’s newborn session – time has flown by!! We have had this shoot scheduled for months and all yesterday I was tracking the weather (as usual). Of course, we made it ALL day without any rain and about 5pm the thunder clouds start to roll in…Oh boy. It’s safe to say I was in panic mode when I saw this huge cloud making its way across the lake! Thankfully Mother Nature came to our rescue and after some studio photos we were able to go up to the gardens. I don’t know if it was the rain, or the humidity or the crazy love these two have that was fogging up my lens😉 but whatever it was I adore these images. Even better, we got the most gorgeous pink and blue sunset while we were in the lake. It really was the beautiful calm after the storm. Here are a few favorite photos AND short video from our time together (made even more special by the song selection played by baby boy’s daddy, Jay Mathey).❤  Enjoy!

happy birthday year 2 baby girl {mount holly family photographer}

Yesterday evening was so much fun! I got to wish one of my baby girl newborns happy 2nd birthday with a special milestone session. Last time I saw them was for her first birthday photos almost exactly a year ago! Her family came to my studio in Lake Wylie and we had a great shoot. Most toddler sessions start out with a little play time to get babies comfortable with us again🙂 Once we played a few familiar songs for Baby J she was an absolute doll for the camera! Her mama brought the most adorable dresses. I love the pink sequins and hint of sparkle. After that we set up the flower wall and got her into the most stunning little girl gown – I am so happy we got to use this backdrop, what a perfect combination of colors and atmosphere. And her curls…ohmigoodness. Divine! After that we raced up to the gardens. It looked like a storm was on its way but instead we got some nice soft clouds that helped cool off the day. The gardens were full of butterflies. You’ll see in the video below – they were fluttering everywhere! But Baby J wasn’t so sure about picking one up quite yet.😉 She has the cutest thing she does too…bringing her hands to her chin and saying “oh my!” – I’m so glad I was able to preserve this special mannerism, forever.❤ We wrapped up back at the lake and got to catch the prettiest pink and blue sunset. What an amazing time. Here are a few favorite images and the video highlight from our time together – enjoy!

summertime baby girl surprise {lancaster newborn photographer}

Surprise!! We had another darling summertime baby girl arrive last week!🙂 She is the 3rd surprise baby I’ve had this month, ALL of which were girls. Thank heaven❤ It was so great to see this awesome family again! I loved meeting them at their gorgeous maternity session and we had such a fun time today too! They came from Lancaster, just south of Charlotte, to my studio  this morning for their newborn session. Baby B just turned 7 days old and is just shy of 10 lbs – so CUTE!! Her chubby cheeks are precious and the back rolls, ohmigoodness. She melted me! The entire shoot she was an angel. We started out with her individual photos and she was so calm and relaxed. Once we got to the family shots she stirred a bit but dozed off to sleep again as soon as I got her swaddled up. The cutest thing happened while her daddy was holding her – he leaned in to give her a kiss and she startled a little when she felt his beard tickle her. So so sweet!! I had fun shooting some video footage again today. The thing I think I love most about this new medium is capturing babies breathing, and oh those tiny expressions!❤ Congrats B family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

family of 6 ~ baby sister surprise {south carolina newborn photos}

I had back to back surprise baby newborn sessions this week! And each family got a little sister❤ I couldn’t wait to meet baby G! Her family of 6 traveled all the way up from Columbia SC to my studio for her newborn session. Last time I saw them was for their Mother’s Day weekend maternity session. Time has flown by! Baby girl also decided to hang out in her mama’s belly a little longer than expected too🙂 She is gorrrrgeous. Her skin is unreal – practically perfect when it comes to a newborn! Her big siblings adore her already. Big sister E was so proud to introduce her to me. We used some really pretty lacey girly things that I loooove for her set ups. And the mama-baby shot is a new favorite. I was almost done with my routine and just before I finished the last pose baby girl woke up and decided to say hello. I’m glad she did because I got the sweetest bright eyed shot of her – these are usually client’s favorite (aside from the sibling photos, of course)❤ I’m honored I got to capture this special time for this family! Congrats G family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

surprise little sister ~ family of 5 {south charlotte newborn photography}

I couldn’t wait to see this awesome family again! We have been anxiously waiting since their gorgeous maternity session to find out if these twin sisters were getting a little sister or brother…surprise! It’s a baby girl.❤ They came from south Charlotte to my studio  this morning for their newborn session, just 10 days old. Big sisters S & R are two of my newborns from several years ago – it is SO special to be able to photograph them again with baby #3! The girls were amazing at their session and I was happy to find out chillness runs in the family. Baby girl M is such a sweet, sleepy girl and didn’t make much of a peep the entire time. I even caught a smile from her!🙂 Sibling photos are always my favorite and this one is no exception. It took us a few tries to coordinate sister kisses but we got it. Mama wanted to keep our tones mostly neutral and I love the soft peachy pink wrap she chose too. How precious is all that hair on baby girl too?! I loooove babies with hair❤ Congrats M family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!
