baby sister makes 4 {fort mill newborn photos}

By | newborn

I had the best newborn session on Friday! Baby sister came just past the new year to this now family of 4. You may recognize them from their son’s newborn photos I took back in 2014 (and they also helped me with my Breakout Session video too!). They came to my studio from Fort Mill and it was so good to see them again. I can not believe how much big brother B has grown! He was SO GOOD for us. I prefaced the shoot saying with age 2 we just kinda roll with it, but he was aweeeeeesome for the sibling shot! First we got a few of him beside his sister but managed to slip his arm around her for a few photos too – GAH. Insanely sweet. Baby girl’s parents told me she was a super sleepy baby…except when they arrived she was wiiide awake, ha! I’m so glad we got a few images of her bright eyes though. 🙂 After I swaddled her up and we finished the family poses she was knocked out again. The rest of the session was a breeze. She was very particular with her hands and did the cutest thing placing one under her chin in the first floor set up. I love when babies do sweet poses naturally!  I have a highlight video coming soon but wanted to share all these favorites first. Congrats H family!! Loved our time together – Enjoy!

welcome baby girl ~ family of 5 {fort mill newborn photographer}

By | newborn

I’m loving this baby girl’s newborn session!! Her new family of 5 opted for an on-location session at their home in Fort Mill (instead of the usual, my studio) and it was great! I’ve been so excited for them because, like my own family, they have two boys and now a sweet little girl 🙂 The boys were super excited at their maternity session.  I love seeing how older siblings react to their new baby. The younger son has definitely taken to his new sister and he was the one who wanted to hold her and snuggle with her. Too precious!! She was sleepy and cozy the whole time. In the video you can see how relaxed she was. I love seeing her breathing so sweetly. Even when she startled she went right back to sleep. I love the pretty white fabrics we used along with the white backdrop for the family photos. I also got to meet baby girl’s grandparents and get a three generation photo- always my favorite!!

3 generations of women ~ priceless gift {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn

There is something incredibly special to me about capturing generations. When a baby is born into a family their world is forever changed. I have been fortunate to photograph a few newborn baby girl/mother/grandmother sessions and they always shake me to the core. I have only felt the indescribable LOVE from when my own children were born, but a grandchild?! I think this is something most mothers dream about experiencing one day and it is something to truly treasure. I’ve said it before, but I really do have the best clients. I get a lot of inquiries – some are from people only want pricing… but the ones who usually become my clients are from people who see my work, read my blog and have a story to tell ME about their life and who they love most in this world. They have a special reason for coming to my studio and they dream about the images we are going to take before we even meet. This is why I love doing what I do! What a special memory for them all. <3

Baby girl C was such a good girl and her newborn session was a breeze. New mom and grandmom got prettied up while I did some individual photos of their new addition. She was adorable and I even caught a huge smile from her! Her parents will have a funny story to tell her when she grows up about WHY she was probably smiling, but life when you are only 2 weeks old is blissfully simple like that 😉 We did some more photos in the studio and then went outside to the dock. It was a gorgeous day and we caught the last little light of a sweet sunset. Congrats to Baby C’s new parents and grandparents, I hope you cherish these images for many years to come <3 Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

little brother ~ family of 4 {waxhaw new born photography}

By | newborn

Ohmigoodness, what a fabulous session we had yesterday! This family of 4 just welcomed a little brother and he is SO CUTE. Last time I saw them was for big sister G’s newborn session not too long ago! It was awesome to spend the morning with them again. Especially when it’s to snuggle and photograph their baby boy 🙂 They came to my Lake Wylie studio from the Waxhaw area and it went amazingly well! When we have a toddler it’s always a bit of go with the flow. I was impressed at how well G did in her photos! We got some candid family shots and caught her giving a kiss to her bro. Sweet boy M was perrrrrrfect too. He is so chill and slept all the way through! We used some pretty neutrals with thicker textures that will complement the set ups we did for G really well too. It means so much when clients come back to see me again to photograph their precious new babies <3 Congrats N family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

baby girl 9 days new {south charlotte newborn photography}

By | newborn

Yesterday I met the most perfect 9 day old baby girl! You’ll probably remember this family (and baby’s furry big sister) from their adorable maternity session earlier this year <3 They came from the Charlotte to my studio this morning for her newborn session and ohmigoodness, these photos are so SWEET! Big sis B came through with another precious pose for our “sibling” shot. She is such a sweet pup and I am glad we got to see her again! Every once in a while I get a baby who is so easy going that we make it through the entire session without a feeding…yep, Baby M was a little sleepyhead. 🙂 We started out with some individual shots of her and she was flashing smiles on the bean bag. I caught a few half grins before we switched set ups. Love her little pouty lips too! She is still super curley – her legs would just fold up naturally like she was still in her mama’s belly. She loved having her feet together in a cute froggy position too, those baby toes get me every.single.time <3 Congrats M family! I am so happy I could capture this special time for you! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

sister kisses ~ family of 4 {charlotte new born photos}

By | newborn

Yesterday morning I got to capture the sweetest sister kisses for this awesome family of 4. They came from Charlotte to my studio  for baby girl #2’s newborn session and I’m so happy I could photograph this special time for their family! Mama is absolutely stunning and I love the touches of lace we used in the session. We also did the mom/baby pose against my favorite floral backdrop and ohmigoodness – new favorite! The tones are so perfect and what a sweet moment with her newest daughter nestled in her arms <3 They were saying how much their new addition sleeps and sure enough, yesterday was the day she decided to wake up and see what was going on 😉 After a snack and a warm swaddle she drifted back off and we got those curly, sleepy poses I love. She even flashed me a little smile!! Congrats S family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

Say hello to the sweetest 9 day old baby girl. This awesome family welcomed a little sister and are smitten with her! You’ll probably remember them from their stunning maternity session a few weeks ago <3 They came from the Concord area to my studio this morning for her newborn session and I’m so happy I could capture this special time for their family! Big brother E is so intrigued with this tiny human his mom and dad brought home, just from a little distance 🙂 Baby girl was so cute and I love all the purples, browns and greens we used in her set ups! Her parents will have some funny stories to tell her when she gets older (we had slightly more laundry than usual this time ;))…but more importantly, they will have these photos to show her how precious she was and always will be <3 Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

everlasting baby gift ~ 3 generations of women {charlotte newborn photographs}

By | newborn

If you want to know what the most everlasting baby gift is, look right here. This little girl’s grandmother contacted me months ago to set up this session as a gift to her daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. I am so happy I could include her in a portrait of the 3 generations of women when they came from North Charlotte to my studio yesterday! What a special memory for them all. Baby girl F was a dream and her newborn session was a breeze. Her family was a bit worried that she wouldn’t sleep but she was out the entire time for me. 🙂 She even flashed me a sweet little smile at the end! I love catching those while babies are sleeping ~ such a happy child already! Congrats to Baby F’s new parents and grandparents, I hope you cherish these images for many years to come <3 Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

happy 11 day old baby girl {south charlotte new born photography}

By | newborn

Oh HAPPY day! What a fun newborn session yesterday with this smiley 11 day old baby girl and her family! They came from South Charlotte to my studio and she was absolutely perfect. We started with some individual photos since she was super sleepy when they arrived. Her nursery is in pale pinks, neutral ivorys and light gray so we used some of those colors in our set ups. When we got to the family shots she flashed us the BIGGEST smile. Talk about grinning ear to ear! Clearly when you’re happy and you know it…you smile! even at less than 2 weeks old 🙂 Her parents are absolutely smitten with her (and I was too ;))! Congrats B Family! Here are a few favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

happy new year ~ baby girl 8 days old {charlotte newborn photography}

By | newborn

Happy 2016!!  This morning I got to snuggle with the sweetest baby girl, just 8 days new. What an amazing way to kick off this year! I have been counting down the days to meet this beautiful girl since meeting her family at their gorgeous autumn maternity session a few weeks ago. Today was freeeeezing cold outside but it was nice and cozy in my studio. Baby R’s nursery is decorated in soft pink and green so we used some of those colors in her floor set ups. I love the flower crowns her parents picked out to use too ~ perfect for a little fairy princess <3 Towards the end of the session I could tell she was in a really deep sleep. The kind where babies tend to smile…and I caught a little grin from her 🙂 Congrats R family!! So happy I could spend my first session of 2016 with you! <3 Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!
