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!

This is an incredibly special spring petite session with a very favorite client!

You will probably recognize Kinsley Rose and her family because I post their photos so often 😉 They come for petite sessions twice every year and I did their younger daughter’s maternity and newborn sessions !

I am posting this a bit later than usual because of timing some “news” surrounded our session – both good and not good, it’s been a bittersweet time for them. As you can see from these happy images, they are so excited to share they are expecting baby #3 this fall!! When I heard this my heart pretty much exploded. Having another baby was no small task for them and it is truly a blessing! Unfortunately, they are also grieving the loss of their precious baby girl Kinsley, who passed away a few weeks after we met. My heart hurts for their sadness and can’t imagine the emotional ride it has been the past several months. As I write this (August 21, 2018), Kinsley would have been 3 years old today. I wanted to share these photos of her and wish her a very special birthday among the angels! Much love to the R family today and every day. <3 Here are some of my favorite images 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!

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.

By | family, petite

It’s an honor to photography this family of 4 again for another spring petite session this year!

They are long time clients and drive from Concord to Lake Wylie in both spring and fall for these special shoots. 🙂

Their family is the sweetest, most laid back group ever. I’m sure they have bad days but I’ve only ever seen them smiling and cracking jokes. They are so easy to please and I am so lucky to call them clients! <3 I offer petite sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals.

6 month old little springtime lady {charlotte baby photographer}

By | family, petite

I’m so happy to see these two sweet ladies for a spring petite session this year!

We did their newborn shoot less than 6 months ago and I can’t believe how big baby girl is already!

She did soooo well too – sitting up like a champ! Definitely still in the “weeble wobble” stage but she stayed up long enough for me to catch a few photos! I even got a few smiles 🙂 <3 I offer petite sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals.

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

Last time I saw them was for their daughter’s newborn photos.

holiday formal family photos {rock hill baby portraits}

By | family

So in love with this holiday family photo session from Friday night!

When she first contacted me, mama mentioned they wanted to do formal attire and I was so excited 🙂

While I’m all for a laid back easy shoot, there is something special about incorporating really beautiful wardrobe into it. Maybe it’s because I rarely dress up anymore and so when we do I really feel the need to take a photo of it 😉 Ha! Either way, the H family was looking amazing in their gowns and tuxedos! We started in the studio and then went outside. Their gorgeous daughter A was super sweet and kind. She was perfection in her Christmas dress! We talked all about what they are asking Santa for this year and how we had to get some really nice photos for their cards to send to him! Too cute. Loved meeting you H family! <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

almost 2! autumn family photos {south charlotte baby photography}

By | family

What a magical autumn family photo session we had last night!

I was so excited to see this gorgeous couple and their daughter again.

It’s hard to believe their little girl is about to turn two! Seems like yesterday we were together photographing their stunning maternity shoot. It was almost exactly 2 years ago! Mid-November always wins as my absolute favorite time of the year around here. The weather and foliage could not have been more perfect. Since it has been unusually warm this year it has taken the leaves a while to change but they are finally falling (and so pretty!). We started in the studio and then went outside. I had gathered up some of the prettiest, fresh fallen leaves earlier in the day and we had so much fun playing with them! After that we did some more exploring around – with toddlers it’s always good to let them stretch their legs a bit 😉 I definitely got a work out chasing this sweet girl around but it was so worth it! <3 Here are some favorites from our time together. Enjoy!
