welcome baby girl {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn | No Comments

We had the best newborn session this morning! This family welcomed a baby girl last week (you’ll remember her from the sweet fresh 48 video I just shared!) and they are completely smitten with her. You’ll remember mama from her stunning maternity shoot last month. We decided to do a “before and after” of her then and now in a few of her favorite lace gowns. Love how these turned out! Also, mama is a talented singer and brought her guitar for us to incorporate into the shoot. Through the magic of photoshop we got the precious image below <3  I have a special love for 3 generation photos and it is so special when I get to include grandparents into the gallery! You can see how much these new grands are incredibly proud of their daughter and so in love with their new granddaughter. So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again M family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

24 hour old baby girl – birth video {uptown charlotte newborn photos}

By | fresh 48, newborn | No Comments

Sweet baby girl M decided to come about a week before her due date and we are so happy she did! I got to meet her when she was less than 24 hours old to do her birth-fresh 48 video! Time flew by since I saw mama last for her stunning autumn maternity session! Mama delivered at CMC Main in Uptown Charlotte and it was such a special time. There was so much love and joy beaming from the whole family for little Cadence Faith. I like to document these birth videos to show the true, simple beauty of life when all you have to do is snuggle your newborn. Cadence was very alert for a lot of the time and even lifted her head up for a few seconds! The look of wonder in a baby’s eyes this young is so magical! We used a special song recording in the video that Cadence’s mama made – her version of Sanctuary, a cover from Nashville featuring Charles Esten and Lennon & Maisy. Soooo gorgeous and so perfect in every way. The lyrics describe exactly the type of mother she wants to be for Cadence: always there for her, for security, safety , and a sanctuary. <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the M family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

sister love ~ holiday photos {mint hill baby photographer}

By | family, petite | No Comments

Loved seeing this sweet family again for their holiday petite session! Last time I saw them was for their daughter’s newborn photos. Ohmigoodness she has grown up so much and was a little doll for us! Super smiley and has the cutest two teeth peeping through her bottom gums. I loooove the dresses mama picked out for them. So gorgeous and timeless <3 I offer petite sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals. We meet for a quick 15 minutes, I grab 10 shots, simple easy and great with toddlers (who have a tiny attention span)! 🙂 Since these are going on their custom holiday cards we create, I can’t often share them on here. But some families give me the ok and I’m excited to post their photos! <3 Here are their 10 images from our time together. Enjoy!

baby brother makes 4 {charlotte new born photography}

By | newborn | No Comments

Yesterday morning was amazing! This new family of 4 welcomed a baby brother and we had the best newborn session. I just shared their precious Fresh 48 video and yesterday was the icing on the cake 🙂 Dad and the boys arrived at my studio in Lake Wylie a little early and we did the sibling photos first. Big brother S was soooooo good and we got the sweetest photos of him with Savan. Mama arrived a bit later and looked absolutely stunning – no way she just had a baby two weeks ago! I’ve known this family since doing their older son’s newborn photos in 2013 so there were a few we wanted to try and do again this time. Well, it was my lucky day because the one shot mama loved so much happened AGAIN! Laying on the floor, Savan looked up at me with big bright eyes just the same way his big bro did 4 years ago – how awesome is this comparison of the two images side by side?! So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again P family, now party of 4!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

holiday formal family photos {rock hill baby portraits}

By | family | No Comments

So in love with this holiday family photo session from Friday night! When she first contacted me, mama mentioned they wanted to do formal attire and I was so excited 🙂 While I’m all for a laid back easy shoot, there is something special about incorporating really beautiful wardrobe into it. Maybe it’s because I rarely dress up anymore and so when we do I really feel the need to take a photo of it 😉 Ha! Either way, the H family was looking amazing in their gowns and tuxedos! We started in the studio and then went outside. Their gorgeous daughter A was super sweet and kind. She was perfection in her Christmas dress! We talked all about what they are asking Santa for this year and how we had to get some really nice photos for their cards to send to him! Too cute. Loved meeting you H family! <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

almost 2! autumn family photos {south charlotte baby photography}

By | family | No Comments

What a magical autumn photo session we had last night! I was so excited to see this gorgeous family again. It’s hard to believe their little girl is about to turn two! Seems like yesterday we were together photographing their stunning maternity shoot. It was almost exactly 2 years ago! Mid-November always wins as my absolute favorite time of the year around here. The weather and foliage could not have been more perfect. Since it has been unusually warm this year it has taken the leaves a while to change but they are finally falling (and so pretty!). We started in the studio and then went outside. I had gathered up some of the prettiest, fresh fallen leaves earlier in the day and we had so much fun playing with them! After that we did some more exploring around – with toddlers it’s always good to let them stretch their legs a bit 😉 I definitely got a work out chasing this sweet girl around but it was so worth it! <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

fresh 48 hour old baby boy – birth video {matthews newborn photos}

By | fresh 48, newborn | No Comments

So in love with this birth-fresh 48 video! This baby boy has been a long time coming and was absolutely worth the wait <3 I got to take his big brother’s newborn photos and am honored to have this family come back to me again! Mama delivered at Novant Women’s Center in Matthews and I came to see them when their little guy was barely 48 hours old. This special time families experience at the hospital or birth center are such a blur! I love being able to create these keepsake videos that help them remember how precious time is with their newborn. The look of wonder in a baby’s eyes this young is so magical! Be sure to watch through to the very end of the video too – I’m so excited I got to include them getting his footprints made. <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the P family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

One of my favorite families ever! I’m excited to share their holiday petite session this year.  We met this time last year too and it is crazy to see how much the kiddos have changed!! I kid you not when I say this is probably the “easiest” it gets with getting kids to smile – they are SO HAPPY! Ohmigoodness. Totally making my job super easy. <3 I offer petite sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals.
