precious baby girl ~ first birthday {charlotte baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Last night I got to see one of my newborns for her 1 year session! I saw her family of 3 this time last year when she was only 9 days old . I love seeing clients again over the years – such an honor to capture these milestones for them! We met at my studio and got a few smiley shots in first. Look at those two bottom baby teeth! So CUTE. Then we brought out a pretty hydrangea cupcake for her first taste of sugar. Well…she wasn’t so sure about it at first. Even after getting a few bites in I think she was more interested in getting messy than eating 😉 After a quick clean up we walked over to the beach. The weather is starting to get cooler (happy FALL y’all) and we are finally getting some much needed rain. Last night we got down to the lake just in time before the sky started falling. We have a 2 mile view down the main channel of Lake Wylie and could see the rain in the distance from the balcony of my studio…but, we made it. And these photos.are.perfection! <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

sweet brothers ~ family of 4 {lake wylie baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Oh BOYS! I’ve been looking forward to last night’s session for months and we had such a great time! This adorable family lives in my neighborhood and have kids around the same age as ours. Big brother E is 4 and his little bro T just turned 9 months old! It’s kinda a boys club here because there are SO many but not as many little girls.  We joked that adorable Baby T is going to be Alice’s future boyfriend 🙂 …well, that’s if her overprotective big brothers allow it, ha! We started out in my studio. Their mama brought some precious outfits for the brothers. Both boys have the cutest smiles! Little T’s eyes are so gorgeous – brown with a slight glimmer of blue in his right. I caught some sweet head shots inside and then we moved outside to the beach. What’s the best way to make boys smile? Let them run, climb, get dirty and play in the water. <3 I was so happy that his mom told me she wanted some photos in the lake too! There is nothing sweeter than a bare bummed baby and his beautiful mama in the water, add in a happy big brother, the warm, golden light just before sunset – it was perfection. Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

happy 1 year ~ sweet cheeks {fort mill baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Last night I got to see this sweet cheeked baby girl for her 1 year session! I saw her family of 3 was this time last year when we had her newborn session. I am so glad I could capture this milestone for them too! We started out in my studio but (as things go with first babies who are already walking) it didn’t last too long before she was ready to get out and stretch her legs. I did catch some sweet smiles and she even started dancing, clapping her hands and blowing kisses! Thankfully the crazy summer weather held out and we had a gorgeous sunny night! We went up to the gardens and then came back down to the lake. Baby J was SO GOOD.  I also got to use a new lens for the session so I have added a few more sneaks than usual <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

happy 1 year sweet girl ~ family of 3 {cornelius baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Last night I got to see this sweet blue eyed baby girl for her 1 year session! Last time I saw her family of 3 was near the holidays for her 6 month photos. Time flew by and she has gotten so big! This time last year we had just done her newborn session. I am so glad I could capture this milestone for them too! Thankfully the crazy summer rain held out and the 4 of us spent our evening in the gardens. Her parents had her giggling and singling and got a few adorable smiles from her – those two bottom teeth she has peeking through…gah!  Too CUTE <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

happy 1 year ~ silly little guy {fort mill baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Last night was my last shoot before going on maternity leave! I can’t think of a better way to wrap up than with one of my handsome newborns and his family! It is hard to believe that this silly little guy is already 1 year old! We lucked out because the weather was beautiful – 60 degrees and sunny in January…I’ll take it 🙂 Still we started with a few photos of the boys in my studio. I wasn’t sure how long they would last before needing to run around, but they did great! I caught a few smiles from them both and little bro A was so adorable smiling with his tongue. Besides smiling, I actually think that he must be using it to balance (based on the sweet photos that I captured of him walking, ha!). Loved seeing the H family again and these boys are the cutest!  Here are a few sneak peeks from the session. Enjoy!

blue eyed baby girl ~ happy 1 year {lake wylie child photography}

By 1 year old, family

Ohmigoodness. Loved seeing this gorgeous blue eyed baby girl at my studio last night for her 1 year photos! I had the honor of doing first year pictures for her older brother too and knew she would be the cutest thing ever. <3 Since it’s pretty cold outside these days we did most of the session indoors. I absolutely love doing the little bare belly shots at this age! Bare feet, bloomers and a big belly are the sweetest wardrobe for any baby (in my opinion ;)). We went outside for more photos and got a few adorable smiles from her – those two bottom teeth she has peeking through…gah! <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

sweet chubby baby boy ~ almost 1 year old {matthews baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

Ohmigoodness. Last night I met the sweetest chubby baby boy! He is about to turn 1 year old and was absolutely adorable at his shoot. With cold winter weather in full effect we decided to start out with some photos in my studio. His parents were all set with everything for his cake smash and then Baby P decided to surprise us all….and have absolutely zero interest in eating his cake. Heh! We were all pretty shocked because, as you might be able to tell from those precious rolls, this cutie likes to eat…just not cake 😉 So! We all had a good laugh and made the most of our time together <3 It was great to meet this awesome family!  Here are a few sneak peeks from the session. Enjoy!

autumn holiday photos ~ the decoud family {charlotte nc baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

We had another gorgeous autumn holiday session last night! It was so much fun to meet the DeCoud family.  They are friends with some of my favorite clients and I was excited to take photos for them this season. Their little girl Peyton is 19 months old and the CUTEST thing. She has the sweetest demeanor yet is totally fearless 🙂 We met at my studio and did some shots there before going outside. The weather was perrrfect! They brought their two pups Lester & Leela too and Peyton was so precious playing with them. In between giving them hugs she was running, jumping, spinning around and throwing leaves – pretty much just loving life <3  I’m so honored to capture these images for their family!! Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

baby major turns 1 year old! ~ the tolbert family {north carolina baby photographer}

By 1 year old, family

I was so excited to see this awesome family again last night! It is hard to believe that little Major just turned 1 year old! Time has flown by since we met for their maternity and newborn photos last year – look how big this sweet guy is now!! When Shianette contacted me to set up a date we weren’t sure if he would be walking or not but he is totally mobile and on the move 🙂 We also didn’t know what kind of shape Mike would be in for the session, but we are all thankful he is back and better than new. We started out with a few photos of the kids in my studio and then went outdoors to enjoy the gorgeous autumn weather! I stole collected several bags of the prettiest leaves in my neighborhood yesterday for them to play in and the whole family had too much fun! Big sister Mikeala was all about throwing leaves and tackling her daddy. So so cute <3 I’m so honored to capture Major’s 1 year milestone for the Tolbert family! He is already a little heartbreaker so watch out 😉 Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!
