winter holiday session ~ family of 3 {south charlotte baby photos}

By | 6 months old, family, petite

I’m excited to share this sweet family of 3 and their winter holiday petite session! I did maternity and newborn for their baby girl. I am so happy to see they are back again!! We always have so much fun and I love watching my newborns grow up <3 Since the weather is finally getting chilly we opted for a studio setting. Plus, mama really wanted those adorable bare bum shots I love so much 🙂 The rolls on their girl are just too precious! She was a bit of a tough crowd but we got a few sweet smiles from her. Love the gummy smiles. And ohmigoodness those CHEEKS! <3 I offer these holiday 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 typically used for 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 gorgeous photos! <3 Here are their 10 images from our time together. Enjoy!

happy half birthday baby girl stewart {fort mill family photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

Last night I finally got to see the Stewart family and meet their happy baby girl! Her smiles made my entire evening. 🙂 It’s hard to believe Baby Stewart is already celebrating her half birthday. Last year I met her stunning mama for maternity photos before she made her way to Denver. Darian had already gone back for the year but I am so glad I could meet him this time! SUCH an awesome family. Truly the nicest people you could hope to meet. And of course, they are completely over the moon in love with their new addition. 🙂 Their little girl was born during football season in Colorado and had her newborn photos taken by my talented friend Tami Wilson. I am thrilled I could capture the 6 month milestone for them! I can’t believe this beautiful new mama just had a baby – she looks AHmazing! We met at the studio first to do a few portraits then went up to the gardens for the family shots. Everything is in bloom and it was the perfect summer setting. Then we came back to do a photo of the girls in the lake. I love seeing the comparison of her maternity photo in the lake with the one now. Time flies. 🙂 Congrats Stewart family – your baby girl is so SWEET! Here are some of my favorites from our time together <3

baby brother 6 months old {south carolina family photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

I am catching up from a whirlwind week but am so excited to share these sneaks of baby brother H, just around 6 months old! This awesome family used to live right around the corner from us and WE MISS THEM. So much! Our boys are the same age and always had so much fun playing together <3 I last saw them about a year ago to do some gorgeous maternity photos! Fast forward and they came back in town for a special occasion – I’m so happy I got to meet their new little guy 🙂 We met at the studio and the boys were…basically, boys, ha! I jokingly share my own boys craziness when trying to get a nice photo, but when I am on a time crunch with clients I try to get the shots I need to make an image and then work a little magic. It’s usually the best route when I have a feeling we might not get the perfect shot in camera 😉 Of course, once we got outside the boys could play around and we got some more smiles from them. We decided to go down and do the shoot on my dock with the lake in the background. So pretty! Here are some of my favorites from our time together <3

6 month old little brother {fort mill baby photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

It was so awesome to see this family again yesterday for their baby boy’s 6 month photos! Last time I saw them little brother was new born and just 13 days old. We blinked and look at him now! He is SO CHILL. Ohmigoodness. We met at the studio and he was super relaxed! I absolutely love the intensity of his gorgeous eyes. We played for a little bit and then went outside. The weather was p.e.r.f.e.c.t. We could not have asked for a prettier evening! The light was ideal and I am loving all the spring green after seeing so many brown, bare trees last winter. I am excited for to see the D family again for his 1 year session! Time flies by the first year and I’m happy I could capture this milestone for them 🙂 Here are some of my favorites from our time together <3

best big sister ~ 6 month baby boy {fort mill child photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

It was soooo great to see this family again yesterday for their baby boy’s 6 month photos! Last time I saw them he was new born and just 11 days old. We blinked and look at him now! He is so sweet and happy. His furry big sister came along and she is still verrrrry protective of him 🙂 We had planned to do this session several weeks ago but between the rain and crazy schedules everything got a little delayed. The weather wasn’t ideal yesterday either so we made the most out of our time in the studio. I do a mix of both natural and studio lighting and really love the dreamy glow from these indoor photos <3 Also, I think he has some of THE cutest outfits of any baby boy I have photographed. The little blue onesie with the knee high socks?! Omggg. Eat your heart out Prince George. Hahahaha! We managed to go outside for a few more before the rain came again and found some gorgeous autumn colors still hiding in the trees. I know the little guy’s mama is excited for his 1 year session when it’s WARM and we can get beachy by the lake 😉 I can’t wait to see everyone again in May too! Here are some of my favorites from our time together <3

sweet alice jane ~ our girl is 9 months old {lake wylie baby photographer}

By | 1 year old, 6 months old, family, my boys, our girl

Our sweet Alice Jane turned 9 months old last Thursday! It is hard to believe she has been outside my belly as long as she was in it <3  I’m late posting these because life is crazy as usual. Busy season plus I’m in the middle of another full Business 202 run.  Did I mention Alice is teething? Oh yeah. No sleep for the weary over here. Her two bottom teeth are the only ones that have come through so far. Help.us.all.

When Alice was born I told myself I would try to get a photo of the 3 kids every 3 months (knowing every month would be imposssssible). So for 9 months I tackled this with my husband’s help…let’s just say, this isn’t as easy and pretty as it looks. Ha. 🙂

I have taken Alice’s newborn1 month2 month3 month 4 month5 month6 month7 month and 8 month photos, along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 9 months! Some of her milestones are:

She has changed so much already! Here is our baby girl:

Our sweet Alice Jane turned 8 months old on Monday! EIGHT. It’s insanity.  😉 Another month FLEW by. Big milestones going down too. Teething+crawling. We are EXHAUSTED.

Since it is almost Halloween I had to go ahead and get some photos of her in her costume. Because Alice, is Alice. Of course. We had to this year because next year she may have more of an opinion on what she’s wearing (or not wearing)! Between the needy teething moments we still get smiles and squeals from her. She is really a little doll. You can’t help but love her. And those eyes. Gah. Melt. She is wearing her daddy’s baby blues with pride! <3

I have taken Alice’s newborn1 month2 month3 month 4 month5 month6 month and 7 month photos, along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 8 months! Some of her milestones are:

happy little sister ~ 6 month sitter session {ballantyne baby photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

I am a little late posting these (my family is recovering from food poisoning, ugggggh) but thankfully this awesome family is a long time client and very understanding of illness <3 I first met them when they were expecting baby girl #1 and now I get to watch baby girl #2 grow up too! These girls are so stinking CUTE. Big sis M has the most perfect ringlet curls!! She hopped out of the car and I caught a few precious smiles from her. Little sis E is such a happy girl. Even though she is teething she still managed to give us some sweet toothy grins at the session. Can’t wait to see everyone again for her 1 year shoot :)Here are some of my favorites from our time together <3

sunshine daydream ~ the o family of 4 {north carolina baby photographer}

By | 6 months old, family

Ohmigoodnessgracious. Last night I had the honor of doing another custom family photo session of epic proportions. This gorgeous family of 4 came to visit me from the Atlanta area, where mama is a local photographer as well. I met her through my CM marketing class earlier this year and it turns out that we have a lot in common. Not only photography, but she also just had a precious baby boy at the end of January a few weeks before Alice was born. Plus she loves live music and we may be couch touring together for a while until our littles get big. Ha! 😉

We started in the studio where I did a new take on an old favorite family shot from when I was shooting strictly natural light. I love the dreamy glow and interaction between their two boys! We went up to the gardens and got a few more favorites. I was excited to hear mom wanted to capture some breastfeeding images. Such a special bond and connection that any mother would want to remember <3 We went back to watch the sunset on the lake. While the original plan was to get in the water, after the tropical storm last week the lake was super high and getting chilly. It was perfect timing because my amazing husband just finished a new raft for me to use during the colder months. I am so happy with the way these came out and hope they do too <3  Here are a few favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

By | 6 months old, family, my boys, our girl

Our sweet Alice Jane turned 7 months old yesterday! 😉 Another month FLEW by. We have finally gotten our house almost back in order from the mess this summer. The boys are back in school and we are trying to get into a routine. I made time to capture some sitter photos of her over the last few weeks too. I kept this month’s photos pretty short but wanted to get her in a few vintage dresses before she outgrew them! The little blue jumper was mine when I was a baby. Thanks to my mother for saving it (and a few others she can wear in the future) <3

I have taken Alice’s newborn1 month2 month3 month 4 month5 month and 6 month photos, along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.
