By | fresh 48

I am beside myself excited to share this sweet baby girl’s fresh 48 hospital session!

I met her when she was barely 48 hours old to do her birth-fresh 48 video at CMC Main in Uptown Charlotte. She was so new she didn’t have a name!

I have know her family since before their first baby boy B was born! We did his gorgeous maternity session and then had fun at his newborn with furbaby sibling G. She rocked yet another photo shoot with us (and at baby girl’s maternity shoot a few weeks back!). I can’t wait to do baby girl’s newborn photos next week too! This is one of my favorite fresh 48 videos. I love all the wardrobe and baby things mama brought into the scene – perfection. <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the W 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!

almost 1! first year milestone photos {lake wylie baby photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I loved seeing one of my newborns and her mama for her first year photo session we had Friday night!

The Spring weather was so nice and I’m in love with these images!

It’s hard to believe this little girl is about to turn one! Seems like yesterday we were together doing one of my favorite fresh 48 videos ever. It was almost exactly 1 year ago! Now Baby M is walking around and so adorable. We started in the studio it took her a little while to warm up to some new dresses and set ups. The balloons were a hit though! Then we went outside to a new location with some pretty blooms. Of course we had to come back and wrap up down by the lake. By that time baby girl was having a blast -the water was her favorite, no doubt! At the end they were even blowing kisses. I love the shot of her mama holding her in the air. Look at that FORM! Future dancer/gymnast for sure.  <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

Last night we had our second epic maternity shoot with this awesome family of “4”!

They are about to become 5 and welcome a baby girl at the end of spring.

They came from South Charlotte to my studio in Lake Wylie and we had an amazing time. Big brother B is one of my past newborns and he has grown into such a sweet little boy! He is super excited to have a baby sister on the way 🙂 As is their furry big sister G, who always steals the show at their photography sessions! I last saw them at B’s magical 1 year shoot, one of my all time favorites <3 The weather was perfect yesterday, just a bit windy but I loved capturing a little movement in these images. We started in the studio and then went over to the beach area and snuck a few photos by the azaleas in bloom. We wrapped up with some photos on the doc and of course, the lake. 🙂 Congrats W family!! I am so excited I get to see them again for their Fresh 48 session (and then newborn)! <3  Here are a few favorite photos from Friday’s maternity session!

This newborn session from Monday is SO SPECIAL TO ME! These babies are my “niece and nephew” and I could not love them MORE.

My beautiful best friend and her beau have an adorable baby boy who is 2 and just welcomed the most perfect little girl to their family of 4!

She is the sweetest thing EVAH. And the spitting image of her mama!! Which is well suited since their boy is his daddy’s twin 😉 I drove to their home in Raleigh, North Carolina and we had so much fun. I’m also so excited I was able to get another 3 generations (my favorite!) image for them this time too. Baby girl slept the whoooole time and was so good. I miss her already!!! Having major withdrawls from all her snuggles. Such a precious girl!<3  Congrats again G family!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

Ohmigoodness. 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 where big sister E was the star! Not surprisingly, she was SO SWEET for the shoot too! 🙂

The family arrived at my studio in Lake Wylie and I started with Isaac’s individual photos first. He was a little angel! Once everyone was dressed we moved to the family, sibling and parent photos. We had a gorgeous family shot on the flower wall at their maternity session – love seeing the “after” image now that their son is here! So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again P family, now party of 4!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

I can’t wait to share this sweet baby boy’s fresh 48 hospital session!

I got to meet him when he was barely 48 hours old to do his birth-fresh 48 video at Presbyterian Uptown Charlotte.

You will remember his mama from her epic winter maternity session a few months ago! Still one of my favorites to date 🙂 We get to do their newborn photos next week too! Baby Isaac’s parents are completely smitten with their little man. And big sister E was a doll at her first visit to come see him. I love this video coverage – becoming a family of 4 is truly a perfect day. <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!

spring family of 3 photos {huntersville baby photographer}

By | family, petite

What a pretty spring petite session we had for this new family of 3!

I did their daughter’s maternity and newborn sessions and now she is almost 6 months old!

I love seeing my newborns grow into little ladies and gents! How gorgeous is the dress mama chose for their girl?! Perfect for the season and location. I adore the photo of her looking up at her parents – such a perfect perspective to show how small she is right now! This tiny lady is so sweet and did a fantastic job at the shoot (it was still a little chilly and she stuck it out the whole time!) <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)! 🙂  I’m excited to post their photos! <3 Here are their 10 images from our time together. Enjoy!

brand refresh+website design : kerrie brogdon {beth wade photography charlotte}

I have another fabulous new website design to share today!

On a limited basis I am now offering custom boutique branding and website design services for photographers.

For most photographers, they can get a great start on their business and websites with my Basic WordPress and Website Creation class through Click PhotoSchool. But when the time comes for a refresh or redesign, sometimes getting that new look exactly perfect takes a little more time and effort! I just recently added this service and am having a fantastic time with it! I’ve had an amazing time working with Kerrie of Kerrie Brogdon (Kerrie B) Photography the past several months. She saw the work I did for Kristy Dooley’s new logo and website and was looking to do a refresh of her own brand and website.

This was her old website:

When Kerrie contacted me she wanted a whole new look for her logo, brand colors and site design. She is relocating to Florida and wanted to play up the beachy vibe with her colors and textures. Her current website felt mismatched with her style and Kerrie wanted to incorporate more beach inspired tones. After seeing her brand inspiration board we made a change towards more shimmery, sandy and warm sunset tones.

For her logo, she chose various fonts she liked and we went through several of them until finding the perfect fit! I recommended two options I thought worked best.  Kerrie knew immediately which one was the winner! I also pulled various new patterns and design elements to use in her designs. She wanted to find a soft blend of colors that would complement her work and we also wanted to create a site where the photos would be center stage!

Here is her final new brand board:

 

Some of the big changes we made to her website:

  • wider layout with custom background, design elements and thumbnails
  • new social icons, contact buttons and custom brand color accents
  • streamlined text and portfolio pages
  • updated page verbiage and custom design for all pages
  • sleek new contact form with consistent linking throughout every page of her site

Once we get the site complete I have a 1:1 video chat to go over the basics for maintaining the new site, making small changes, etc. Kristy also has a month of support from me with any help she needs making changes or updating the content!

Do you need a brand refresh or website redesign? Contact me for details!

Loved seeing this sweet family again for their spring petite session!

They are long time clients and I loved photographing their daughter’s newborn photos.

Ohmigoodness she has grown up so much and was a little doll for us! She and her big brother were so sweet – I could have taken pictures all day of them. I loooove the outfits mama picked out for everyone. So gorgeous, springtime and timeless <3 I offer petite sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals.

I’m so excited to share this new website design today!

On a limited basis I am now offering custom boutique branding and website design services for photographers.

For most photographers, they can get a great start on their business and websites with my Basic WordPress and Website Creation class through Click PhotoSchool. But when the time comes for a refresh or redesign, sometimes getting that new look exactly perfect takes a little more time and effort! I just recently added this service and am having a fantastic time with it! I’ve had so much fun working with Rhiannon of Rhiannon Livardo Photography the past several months. She saw the work I did for Kristy Dooley’s new logo and website and was looking to do a refresh of her own brand and website.

This was her old website (with PhotoBiz):

brand refresh+website design : rhiannon livardo {beth wade photography charlotte}

When Rhiannon contacted me she wanted a fresh professional look for her logo, brand colors and site design. Her current website was pretty stark and Rhiannon wanted to incorporate more brighter tones. After seeing her brand inspiration board we made a change towards more feminine purples and pinks with a hint of teal.

brand refresh+website design : rhiannon livardo {beth wade photography charlotte}

 

For her logo, she chose various fonts she liked and we went through several of them until finding the perfect fit! I recommended the one I thought would be most appropriate for a “refresh” – not too crazy different from what she had before but much more streamlined and professional than what she was currently using.  After comparing all the options there was no question it was the winner! I also pulled various new patterns and design elements to use in her designs. She didn’t want to go too neutral because her work is so vibrant and rich, but we also wanted to create a site where the photos would be center stage!

Here is her final new brand board:

 

brand refresh+website design : rhiannon livardo {beth wade photography charlotte}

Some of the big changes we made to her website:

  • wider layout with custom background, design elements and thumbnails
  • new social icons, contact buttons and custom brand color accents
  • brand new blog page
  • updated page verbiage and custom design for about, home and portfolio pages
  • sleek new contact form with consistent linking throughout every page of her site

Because your brand extends all the way into your products and packaging, Rhiannon added on a print design option where I created new sticker designs, gift certificates, return address labels, business cards and thank you notes. I love how these turned out! She ordered her beautiful new printed material from WHCC.
