autumn holiday photos ~ twin sisters {charlotte family portraits}

By | family, petite, twins | No Comments

I’m so excited to share my first of this year’s holiday petite sessions! You’ll remember them from their gorgeous petite photos last year too. Mama said they went all Christmasy this year and I’d say it is Christmas perfection. Love the girls dresses with mama’s stunning red lace gown! <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 love their photo as a couple too – as I was photographing it I realized that it is the exact same spot we took their maternity photos back in 2014! 🙂 Since these are going on their 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!

I’m totally googley eyed over these gorgeous newborn twin sisters!! You may recognize them from the recent Fresh 48 video I did for them – soooooo sweet <3 I loved doing a special hospital photography session for them and now we got to play again in my Lake Wylie studio! We had been waiting to find out pink or blue and I’m loving that dad has alllll these gorgeous girls. Since the gender was a surprise the babies nursery is in neutrals and we used a lot of grays and white at the shoot. The fall leaves are just starting to turn so I really wanted to bring some of that warm color into the session. Love how the final image turned out! I pulled the same beautiful gown that mama wore at her maternity session to use as a fabric backdrop for them. The parents also brought the cutest quilts made by the girls’ grandmother and we incorporated those as well. Possibly the most excited was big sister N. She is in love with her new little sisters and had a permanent smile on her face the whole time. I am so excited to share these images! Congrats W family – your babies are absolutely PERFECT! <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!

baby woland twin girls birth-fresh 48 video {charlotte new born photos}

By | fresh 48, newborn, twins

What an amazing afternoon I had capturing a birth-fresh 48 hospital video with this new family! We first met at their maternity shoot and I’m so happy to announce they had twin GIRLS last week. The girls are absolutely perfect! Natty and Cassie were about 48 hours old when I came to see them, fresh newborn sweetness x2. 🙂 This special time a family shares together is absolutely sacred and I feel lucky to be a part of it! Everything is brand new and the rest of the world stands still outside their little universe. Fresh 48-birth sessions are quickly becoming my new favorite genre of photography – especially the videography. It gives me an opportunity to tell a story about these precious gifts! I love taking all the pretty pictures too…but the first few days after birth are the real deal – so much love and joy to capture! You’ll see it evident in the video below 🙂 I shared a few favorite photos too.  <3 Congrats Woland family!! 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 – Enjoy!

Ohmigoodness, this stunning family! When they contacted me to schedule their holiday petite session I was so excited. We met last Friday and I haven’t seen these sweet twin girls since they were newborn babies! So many photos from that shoot remain in my favorites. They grow up SO FAST. <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)! Mama was absolutely gorgeous and all the girl’s dresses were perfection! I love their photo as a couple too – I like to get a shot of parents together without the kids because it’s so rare (but important!)! 🙂 Since these are going on their 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!

surprise twins due autumn {matthews maternity photography}

By | maternity, twins

Ohmigoodness. I am in love with this maternity session! This adorable couple is having twins due in autumn and they are beyond excited. They are waiting to find out the babies genders too – so.much.fun! We met last night at my studio in Lake Wylie for hair and makeup before the shoot. The weather this summer has been insane and sure enough…while mama was getting prettied up it started to rain. UGH. Out of nowhere! Again. Thankfully the rain came and stayed away just long enough for us to be able to get some beautiful outdoor photos! The sky was crazy and I love the deep colors that come from the muted natural lighting. Once we got back we went to the lake and got the most incredible blue sunset (before the rain came back again :-p ). We wrapped up with some more studio photos after the lake. I LOVE the gorgeous maternity gown mama brought with her!! Of course now I will be adding it to my studio collection too. 😀 Congrats W Family!! I had a fantastic time with y’all and can’t wait to see you again soon!! Here are a few favorite photos, as well as a “moving portrait” video from our time together!

surprise little sister ~ family of 5 {south charlotte newborn photography}

By | newborn, twins

I couldn’t wait to see this awesome family again! We have been anxiously waiting since their gorgeous maternity session to find out if these twin sisters were getting a little sister or brother…surprise! It’s a baby girl. <3 They came from south Charlotte to my studio  this morning for their newborn session, just 10 days old. Big sisters S & R are two of my newborns from several years ago – it is SO special to be able to photograph them again with baby #3! The girls were amazing at their session and I was happy to find out chillness runs in the family. Baby girl M is such a sweet, sleepy girl and didn’t make much of a peep the entire time. I even caught a smile from her! 🙂 Sibling photos are always my favorite and this one is no exception. It took us a few tries to coordinate sister kisses but we got it. Mama wanted to keep our tones mostly neutral and I love the soft peachy pink wrap she chose too. How precious is all that hair on baby girl too?! I loooove babies with hair <3 Congrats M family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

twin big sisters ~ surprise baby {charlotte nc pregnancy photographs}

By | maternity, twins

It was SO GOOD to see this fabulous family again last night! If you follow my work you’ll recognize the gorgeous mama from one of my all time favorite twin newborn photos, EVER. I have a canvas of it in my studio and still can’t believe how amazing these twin girls were for their session! I love seeing my newborns growing up and especially love watching them become big siblings <3 They are waiting to find out if it’s a little brother or sister but when I asked I got two different answers from them 🙂 We had planned to do the shoot last week but mother nature rained us out – what a blessing in disguise! Because last night was perrrfect.  We started in my Lake Wylie studio with makeup right before we began. Daddy brought the sisters a little later when we were ready. They were a little shy to start, but once we got them into their dresses and played ring around the rosy the girls opened right up. Ohmigoodness, talk about precious! Baby M’s mama wanted a beachy look and we decided to go to the beach park after the studio portraits. The twins couldn’t wait to get in the water so we went back to change into the swimsuits I had for them (part of my studio wardrobe, along with the dresses). Once we got in the lake mama totally rocked it holding BOTH girls around her sweet baby belly. Love the photo of them!! Definitely a new favorite <3 Congrats on Baby M #3!! I can’t wait to see y’all again SOOON!! Here are some favorites from our time together. <3

twin brothers 6 weeks new born {huntersville baby photographer}

By | newborn, twins

Just LOOK at these gorgeous newborn twin brothers!! We met a few days before their due date but they were born 6 weeks early. The family came to my Lake Wylie studio from Huntersville and we had such a beautiful session. Their big sister C is 3 years old and did an amazing job holding her two little bros! Her mama had her in a precious white dress and I love the neutral tones she chose for their wraps too – absolutely timeless! Not to mention how well they compliment the boys pretty skin <3 What a blessing these babies are for this family.  I am so excited to share these images! Congrats E family – your children are absolutely PERFECT! <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!

20 day old sisters ~ newborn twin girls {charlotte baby photos}

By | newborn, twins

Eeeeeeek!! Yesterday’s newborn session was EPIC. I got to photograph the most perfect baby girl TWINS. They are only 20 days young but still 8 days shy of their actual due date. <3 These beautiful girls are even more special because their mama and I go waaaaaay back to our hometown of good ole Dur’m. 🙂 I was thrilled to hear from her when she was expecting and I’m so honored she chose me to capture this fleeting time for her and her husband! As small as this world is, my assistant Tiffany also knows this sweet family and was able to help me at the shoot. It was so much fun! Not to mention the girls were SO GOOD. We started out with some shots of the girls together and they were absolutely angelic. Their nursery is decorated in neutrals and mom and dad pretty much gave me full control to pick out everything for the set ups! I used similar headbands but different colors and we didn’t really do to much matchy identical stuff. I am in love with how these images turned out! At the end we convinced the girls mama to do a photo with just them. I know it is so hard to feel beautiful after giving birth (to one baby much less TWO) but I do my best to create a stunning photograph that a mother will cherish as years go on. I think…mission accomplished <3 Congrats P family!! I am so grateful to be able to meet your precious daughters 🙂 Here are a few favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

identical twin boys! 18 day old brothers {lancaster sc newborn photographer}

By | newborn, twins

I was so excited to finally meet these precious identical newborn boys!! The sweet twin brothers came to my studio all the way from Lancaster. I am SO honored to be able to capture this special time for them and their awesome family! Their parents are the cutest couple and we had such a gorgeous maternity shoot. I knew we would have an amazing day again. They are doing a fabulous job with these two boys. We started as usual with family photos and they totally nailed every shot 🙂 I had a few set ups for the siblings together after that before doing some individual poses of each twin. So happy for these new parents and their baby boys! <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!
