sweet alice jane ~ our girl is 2.5 years old {lake wylie baby photographer}

By | family, my boys, our girl | No Comments

Another year, another better late than never post for milestone photos! Our sweet Alice Jane turned 2.5 years last month and time is flying by! School started back for the boys and Alice also started her first 2 day pre-school – sob!! My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Life is still happy chaos around here. I’m still always behind between sessions, teaching my classes, family time and everything else.

Alice is still as sassy as she is sweet…she truly is the perfect completion to our family ūüôā Her brothers adore her and she is a girly girl through and through. Loves to play dress up, dolls and her favorite colors are purple and pink. <3

 

I have taken Alice’s¬†newborn,¬†1 month,¬†2 month,¬†3 month¬†4 month,¬†5 month,¬†6 month,¬†7 month,¬†8 month,¬†9 month,¬†10 month,¬†11 month,¬†1 year,¬†18 month¬†and a few 2 year photos along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 2.5 years! Some of her milestones are:

We love our girl more than words can say! Here she is at 2.5 years old:

Ohmigoodness, look at this sweet girl! You’ll recognize her from her fresh 48 session I just did, but this time she slept the morning away ūüôā Her mama was afraid she might want to eat the whole time but I shared some of my old tricks to keep babies sleepy and cozy for photos <3 When they got to¬†my studio¬†it was nice an toasty and we got started with the curly bean bag poses because they had a long drive from the Lake Norman area. Babies love that car ride! When they get here they are usually in a deep sleep and Baby S rocked her whole shoot. I even caught a little smile from her when we did the daddy daughter pose! So excited to share these sneaks and for the family to see their maternity and newborn galleries soon! Congrats again S family – loved seeing yall and capturing this special time! <3 ¬†Here are several¬†favorites from our session ‚Äď Enjoy!

By | fresh 48, newborn | No Comments

It was so good to see this adorable couple again for their¬†birth-fresh 48 video! Last time I saw them was for their stunning maternity session and now they are finally holding their¬†newborn¬†baby girl. Born at 10lbs, 6oz and she is all cheeks!! ūüôā Mama delivered at Lake Norman Regional Hospital and I came to see them when their baby girl was a little over a day old. The thing with big babies…they loooove to eat, hehe. I got some sweet snuggly shots and I love the breastfeeding footage so much. There is nothing like that bond between mother and baby!¬†And daddy is already a rock star at changing his little girl’s diapers. These two are doing an amazing job just less than 2 days into the new parenting gig! <3 This video was¬†taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to this gorgeous couple!! 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¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

By | maternity | No Comments

There must be something in the water this year because I seem to have the most baby girls due, thank heaven! It’s been so much fun going girly. <3 ¬†This sweet couple is thrilled to be welcoming a daughter and they are so so in love. Our session was absolutely perrrrfect! They came to my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and mama got her hair and makeup done just before we started. I’m so happy I can offer this pampering to my clients! What lady doesn’t love to be pampered a bit, especially when you are 34 weeks pregnant ūüėȬ†¬†We started in the studio and had fun with some beautiful fabrics and intimate portraits. Mama brought some gorgeous lace robes we used too. The weather has been a little cooler lately (like in the 80s, ha!) and we had an amazing time walking around the gardens. I took them to my usual favorite spots and then we went to a new area with stunning wildflowers in bloom. Mama sent me several shots from my maternity portfolio¬†that she loved, and we got to try some new ones too. Best part? Dad grew up on Lake Norman and was game to join mama in the lake – <3 <3 <3 ! I could have photographed them allllllll night. The sunset was incredible too – pinks and blues made an awesome purple glow. Such a magical night ūüôā I am so excited I get to see them again for their Fresh 48 session and then newborn! Also, I’m excited to showcase my newly refreshed branding on this post – hope y’all like the new look! <3 ¬†Here are a few favorite photos from Friday’s maternity session!

sisters for 8 days ~ family of 4 {north carolina newborn photos}

By | newborn

Just loooook at these sweet sisters, 8 days new! This is such a special session to me. Their family has been a warm presence in my life for many years now and I am so happy I get to photograph another new grandbaby for them!! Baby girl’s grandparents live in the Lake Wylie area but her parents drove to¬†my studio¬†all the way from Raleigh!! It’s an honor to get to spend my afternoon with them and their adorable girls. Baby G was absolutely perfffect. Such a sleepy, happy baby and she flashed me several smiles! Plus…¬†LOOOK AT THAT HAIR!! Ha. Y’all know I’m obsessed with babies who have amazing hair ūüėČ After the family and sibling photos we took a break to fill her belly before doing her individual shots. She woke up for a little bit and then drifted back off to sleep – even totally chill and smiling through an episode of hiccups! Congrats again G family – loved seeing everyone again! <3 ¬†Here are several¬†favorites from our time together¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

baby brother makes 3 ~ family of 5 {davidson newborn photos}

By | newborn

It was so good to see this family of 5 again for their¬†newborn¬†session yesterday! Last time I saw them was for a Fresh 48 session and their little man was barely 24 hours old. Now he is 18 days new and we had the best time at my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. <3 Mama wanted to incorporate Baby K’s cousins (who are as close as siblings!) so we started out with those photos in their special Indian attire. You might remember from their daughter’s newborn session but I loooooooove all their gorgeous fabric! We got to use several pieces as well as dad’s special hat from the wedding (we got to use mama’s wedding fabric for daughter S)! He even flashed me a cute little smile at the end. Baby K’s big brother was all giggley smiles again and was so sweet giving his little bro hugs and kisses. ūüôā ¬†So excited to share these images <3 ¬†Congrats K family, now party of 5!! Here are several¬†favorites from our time together¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

the b family of 6 {lancaster baby photography}

By | 1 year old, family

Yay! Last night I got to see the B family again for a special extended session ūüôā We met not too long ago when Baby B turned one, but this time we got to include all of her big siblings in the photos! This girl is so incredibly loved <3 They came¬†to my studio¬†from Lancaster and we had so much fun!¬†Thankfully the weather cooled down for us just a little bit (yes, I’ll take 86 over 106 degrees alllll day!) and it could not have been nicer for late July. We started in the studio so I could get a few of Baby B in an adorable little blue romper and bow set from Feltman Brothers (part of my studio collection!). Ohmigoodness, those chunky legs and cheeks tho – I die! Baby B just started walking (and has been getting some new teeth in…) so she was happiest walking around and exploring outside. We went to the gardens for some portraits and then let her do a little wandering. Baby B’s dad is a camera enthusiast and possibly the coolest part of the shoot was me getting to play with his 400mm lens (which was almost literally as big as I am, ha!!). I’m going to have to borrow it again as soon as I build up about 20 extra pounds of arm muscles ūüėČ hehehe <3 So good to see everyone again!! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

baby sister ~ family of 4 {fort mill newborn photography}

By | newborn

Ohmigoodness – two sweet baby girls in¬†my studio this week!! This family of 4 welcomed a little sister and she is so CUTE. I got to see her a week ago for her Fresh 48 session too. I loooooove babies with hair. I mean, LOOOK AT THAT HAIR!! Ha ūüėČ We were talking about how the cowlick in the back is just perfect. Baby girl also looks just like her brother did at this age! ¬†They truly could have been twins. Mama brought the pretty floral wrap she had at the hospital and I am so glad we got to use it again! When we started I also caught a little smile from her. After the family and sibling photos we took a break to fill her belly before doing her individual shots. She was happiest all cuddled up but I love her little hands peeping out of the swaddle. So honored to have this family come back to see me again!! Congrats y’all <3 ¬†Here are several¬†favorites from our time together¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

welcome little sister {lake norman newborn photos}

By | newborn

I am so happy to see this sweet family again! They welcomed a little sister recently and their other daughter is one of my newborns…hard to believe it has been two years already!¬†We met at my studio Tuesday morning and Baby girl #2 made my job soooo easy. She was super sleepy and snoozed away all through her individual photos. She even flashed a few smiles! Her big sis totally rocked her new role and we got the most precious sibling photos of them together. For baby’s individual photos I got to use a few of the same wraps and poses we did for their other session. Mama wants to display them both together in their home and I absolutely love this idea <3 ¬†Congrats again A family!! Here are several¬†favorites from our time together¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

surprise! it’s a boy ~ birth-fresh 48 video {davidson newborn}

By | fresh 48, newborn

So thrilled to share another sweet¬†birth-fresh 48 videos! When I went to visit them, this little guy was barely 24 hours old – so new he didn’t have a name yet! We did their maternity session a little early because mama has had historically early deliveries and surprise baby #3 was no different ūüôā¬†She and I had actually been texting earlier in the day about scheduling the newborn shoot and she said she couldn’t believe baby wasn’t here yet…sure enough, I got a text that night that her water broke! Mother’s intuition is strong <3 She delivered at Presbyterian Main and they are so happy to welcome another baby BOY to their family. Big sister and brother were so adorable and are completely in love with their little brother already. Big bro S was already talking about how he can play soccer with his little bro – too cute for words. I am so happy I could capture this special time for their family. This video was¬†taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again!! 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¬†‚Äď Enjoy!
