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 b turns 1! {lancaster family photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I am so happy to see this fabulous family again! Their little Baby B (or BB ;)) is turning 1 and this past year has flown by. They came¬†to my studio¬†from Lancaster and we had a fantastic evening. Mama brought some adorable tutus for us to photograph so we started with those before doing the¬†cake smash. How sweet is her bee cake too?! We weren’t sure she was going to go for it but after a little help with the icing from mama she dug in. This is the first time in a while I’ve had a¬†first year milestone¬†baby actually eat their cake! It was so cute – she even made “nomnomnom” sound effects in the process, hehe. After getting cleaned up we went to the gardens for more family photos. Mama told me Baby B loooooves bubbles so we went to town with them (and no, they aren’t photoshopped on!)! She was in total awe. It was perfect! The balloons also kept her happy and busy for a good while. Once we wrapped up there we had one more special photo to do back at the studio – I love how this turned out! They brought one of their beautiful canvases from the newborn session and we did a side by side with their girl now. It’s amazing to see how much babies change in just one year! So great to see you again B family, and I’ll see you again very soon <3 ¬†Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

happy 1 year baby girl {huntersville family photography}

By | 1 year old, family

I¬†had another fun 1 year session last night! This happy baby girl and her¬†family came¬†to my studio¬†from Huntersville and we had a fantastic evening. I set up several backgrounds for us to use before doing the¬†cake smash. I love the soft, pretty tones in my flower wall. Perfect for little girls! Baby G’s birthday party is today so we gave her the very first taste of cake…annnd she wasn’t so interested, ha! But the balloons were a huge hit ūüôā She grabbed hold of one little gold glitter balloon and that was her favorite. I think the only thing she might have liked more is clapping – so cute how much she loves to clap her hands! We went up to the gardens and got some beautiful family photos!¬†By the time we got back to the studio the sun was perfectly setting by the lake. I adore the¬†photo of mama with her girl in the water! So honored I was able to capture her¬†first year milestone! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

baby girl’s first birthday {arboretum family photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

It was so great to see one of my newborns again last night for her¬†1 year session! Last time I saw them she was for a petite session around her¬†6 month milestone and she is the CUTEST.EVER. ¬†Her¬†family came¬†to my studio¬†and we had such a fun evening. We started out with some photos of her¬†in a precious embroidered¬†outfit before moving to the¬†cake smash.¬†It’s always funny to see what babies do when they get a cake in front of them…baby girl is clearly not a fan! Hahaha. That face she makes is the BEST. The nose scrunch is just too much! After we cleaned her up we made our way over to the beach for some family portraits. I absolutely love mom’s outfit and the bare bum beach shot came out so sweet! We wrapped up with sunset in the lake. So much gorgeousness from one session!¬†I’m so honored I was able to capture her¬†first year milestone¬†along with the others! Happy birthday sweet girl! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

happy 1 year little man {fort mill baby photos}

By | 1 year old, family

It was so great to see another one of my newborns again last night for his 1 year session! The little man was only 6 months old last time we met.¬†His family came¬†to my studio¬†and we had such a fun evening. Thankfully the weather was AHmazing (we had to reschedule this twice because of the crazy August rain!). We started out with some photos of him in a precious nautical outfit before moving to the¬†cake smash.¬†It’s always funny to see what babies do when they get a cake in front of them. I have to say that last night was the first time I got to see one get toppled over, ha!! So apparently baby D isn’t really into sweets and made that clear with his actions – hilarious! His parents said he likes more hearty, salty dishes…we joked that we should have had a turkey smash ūüėČ We made our way up to the gardens for some family portraits. The boys also got a chance to stretch their legs and play a bit. Love the shot of mom and dad together too <3 Baby D was getting sleepy and¬†started sucking his thumb a few times which I think is so cute!¬†It was adorable¬†to watch his big bro give him hugs too. I’m so honored I was able to capture¬†his¬†first year milestone¬†along with the others! Happy birthday sweet boy! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

sweet alice jane ~ our girl is 18 months old {lake wylie baby photographer}

By | 1 year old, family, my boys, our girl

Better late than never (again!), our sweet Alice Jane turned 1.5 years (18 mos) last month and time is flying by! School recently started back and life is constant happy chaos around here. I’m also always behind between sessions, teaching my classes, family time and everything else. Alice has become as sassy as she is sweet…and fits in *perfectly* with our family ūüôā I’m absolutely obsessed with her curls – they are ringlets actually. I never imagined I could be excited to take a gazillion pictures of the back of her head, ha! ¬†She gets her mind made up and there is no stopping her (no clue where that comes from…). We will all be happy once she gets her teeth in too. Slowly but surely. <3

Last night when I tried to do her photos I realized just how long it had been since I have done any photos with her (6 months ago at her 1 year?!) and she didn’t like me walking away leaving her one.single.bit. You can see from my very first shot taken that she’s become a little attached to her mama’s hip. I had promised her big brothers that I would give them dessert if they were good and they were clearly concerned that wasn’t going to happen. Ha! Thankfully everyone settled down a bit and we even got to play with a few butterflies while we were up there. I’ve been hanging on to this beautiful dress for her since her first birthday…thank goodness I didn’t miss the window for her to wear it! It’s also part of my studio wardrobe¬†¬†now too <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¬†and 11 month photos¬†along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 1.5 years! Some of her milestones are:

We love our girl more than words can say! Here she is at 1.5 years old:

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

By | 1 year old, family

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 ūüôā 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. ūüėČ 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.

baby boy turns 1 ~ rainbow magic {fort mill family photos}

By | 1 year old, family

What.a.night! This sweet baby boy is turning 1 and we have been planning the details of¬†¬†his session for months.¬†His family¬†came from the Fort Mill area to my studio¬†and it was a CRAZY¬†evening. <3 For the first time EVER mother nature threw me a curveball and it RAINED. But…silver lining? We got a rainbow. Magical! <3 Before every shoot I check the weather like a hawk. Rain.was.not.forecasted. Ha! So we had to change the game plan a little bit and dodge the rain (thunder…and lightning :-/ )! After we did the little guy’s¬†cake smash, we walked over to the beach because mama reeeeally wanted a beachy session. The weather held off for us and the lighting turned out pretty perfect! Finally we made it back down to the lake and wrapped up up before the sky started falling again. This photo of mama with her little guy in the water is one of my favorites EVER. It really doesn’t get more beautiful. <3¬†I have loved watching this adorable, happy boy grow from his newborn session, to 6 months old and now¬†the first year milestone!¬†Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

first year family of 3 {fort mill baby photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I had another adorable 1 year session last night with one of my newborn clients and his family of 3! They came from Fort Mill to my studio and it was a gorgeous spring night <3 I was so excited to see them again for the first year milestone! Such a happy guy and we got some big smiles from the start! And those big precious eyes?! Yep. Heart melting. We began with some individual and birthday suit photos before moving to the cake smash. Baby boy was not so sure about the cake but looooved the balloons. He is having a red and blue hot air balloon themed first birthday party so we did some photos to play on it! After we got cleaned up we went outside and the weather was perfect. Loved seeing this awesome family again and glad to be able to capture their handsome son at one year old. <3 Here are a few images from our time together Рenjoy!

happy 1 year baby boy {south charlotte baby photographs}

By | 1 year old, family

Ohmigoodness. I had such a fun 1 year session last night with this adorable baby boy and his family! They came to my studio from south Charlotte and it was a perfect evening <3 The last time I saw them was last year for his newborn shoot. I love seeing my newborns again for the first year milestone – I can always see something familiar in their eyes and brow. How could I forget these¬†gorgeous big brown eyes?! We started with some individual and bare bum photos before moving to the¬†cake smash. This truly was the little guy’s first time tasting sugar and he wasn’t so sure about that frosting stuff. But man, as soon as we put the cake down he grabbed it and was ready to paint the backdrop! ūüėČ After we got cleaned up we went outside and the weather was divine. Not too hot and we had a nice spring breeze. All the trees are starting to bloom around here and I love it! I’m so happy to see the O family again and capture their sweet son at this precious age. Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!
