welcome baby girl {steele creek charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn

I had the pleasure of meeting another newborn baby girl on Friday! Her new family of 3 came to my Lake Wylie studio from Charlotte and their session was a breeze. 🙂 Baby L slept the whole time and was a little doll for me. Her nursery is a mix of blush, gray, white and gold. Her mama and I share a love for a touch of sparkle too! We used a few wraps and fabrics that set a hint of glimmer. The toes shot is one of my favorites! What a beautiful blessing for this family right between Thanksgiving and New Years. Photographing babies around the holidays reminds me of the most important gifts we are given in this lifetime. <3 Congrats L family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

I have been so excited to welcome this newborn baby girl to my studio! Her mama and I went to Wake Forest together and it was so good to see her again. It’s an honor when friends trust me to photograph their new family. 🙂 Baby girl came a little early but we got a bit of a late start because she was so tiny! Now she is finally eating well and at almost a month old she was such a sweet, happy girl at her session. She was flashing smiles at me and I caught a few on camera and video! Baby C’s daddy is Irish and I love the pretty greens we incorporated to their images. Her mama also brought a special lavender blanket to use that is a family heirloom. These new parents are doing an amazing job with their new bundle of joy! I’m so honored I could capture this once in a lifetime milestone for them 🙂 You can see from the video highlights how much she is loved! Congrats C family!! Here are several favorites and the video portrait from our time together – Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of meeting another newborn baby girl yesterday! Her new family of 3 came to my studio from Fort Mill and we had an awesome session. When I contacted her mom around due date time she told me their little one decided to come 2 weeks early! They have been getting adjusted to life as new parents so we met a bit later than usual. Mama let me know their girl wasn’t always the easiest to settle, but I generally don’t let that scare me 😉 We had a few moments of unrest but Baby K was overall pretty great. I even caught a little smile during the family shot.

This is such a special newborn session. Baby girl’s grandmother in New Jersey gifted these photos to her son and daughter-in-law. So I have been anxiously waiting to meet them for months! It’s an *honor* to hear that, after researching online,  I was chosen as the “best” photographer to capture this special time for them. my studio on Lake Wylie. Their daughter is absolutely adorable and such a happy girl! We were getting ready for the family photos when Baby W started flashing me some smiles. I caught the first one but ohmigoodness she had so many more for us today (see how many you can count below ;))! She came a little later than her due date and has the chubbiest cheeks ~ my favorite. We kept her set ups with bright white and ivory neutrals. I love adding touches of feminine fabrics and dainty tiebacks with little girls. I am also loooving the video footage from today (taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – hopefully baby’s grandparents will also love to see their granddaughter’s precious breaths in motion as well. Congrats again W family!! Here are several favorite photos and video highlights 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!

the greatest love ~ 10 day old baby girl adoption {north carolina newborn photographer}

By | newborn

This session is very special to me. I am so incredibly happy for this family who finally got to meet their 10 day old baby girl last week! The greatest love is arguably the love you have for your child. But even greater might be the love of adoptive parents. Adoption is a deeply personal subject for me since I was adopted as an infant.  My parents always told me that they couldn’t have done any better if they had made me themselves. And even though we were different genetically, we still held many things in common. Throughout my life I even had strangers tell me I looked “just like my mother” or “had my father’s eyes”. I think it’s true in many ways. Love transcends so much. The universe has a funny way of bringing us together with the people we are meant to be with <3 When I got contacted by baby girl’s beautiful mama I was thrilled and honored. We planned a newborn session during their special visit in Charlotte to meet their daughter. What a fun time! They are doing an amazing job as new parents and their little one is as happy as can be (clearly, from her little smile during the shoot ;))! We kept things clean and simple and used lots of natural, neutral tones. They brought one very special item to incorporate – a precious little sweater that baby girl’s late grandmother had started to sew for her. Mama had it finished just in time and I am so glad we got to capture this special gift. I had a hard time choosing only a few photos to share! Too many beautiful images, so here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

7 day old blondie ~ baby girl {charlotte newborn photography}

By | newborn

Thank heaven for baby girls 🙂 This little 7 day old blondie came to my studio with her family today. She is gorrrrgeous! Her parents have been waiting a long time for her and “she” ended up being a big surprise because all their family and friends had bets mama was carrying a boy. 🙂 More importantly though is Baby H is happy and healthy. She was so cozy as we started out, loved being bundled up and snuggling in her parents arms. Her mama loves purple (also my favorite ;)) and I adore this floor set up! After feeding her a big meal I got a few more sleepy photos of her in her birthday suit. She has the prettiest blonde eyelashes I’ve seen on a newborn! I’m so glad I got to capture their baby girl at her tiniest.  Congrats H Family! Here are a few favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

The happiest baby girl came to  my studio for her newborn photos yesterday! She was 14 days new and such a little doll. I love catching newborn smiles and she flashed several for me during our time together! When mom and dad arrived with her they weren’t sure if they wanted to be in any photos – I can absolutely relate to the feeling…with a newborn, just getting out of the door in one piece is an accomplishment 😉 But they did jump in for a few and I hope they will be glad to have these in the future <3 Congrats C Family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

family of 3 ~ sleepy baby boy {newborn photographer south park}

By | newborn

Yesterday I met another new family of 3! They arrived at my studio with their sleepy baby boy and we had a fantastic session. I’m so happy they contacted me after another one of my amazing clients referred them! I knew they would be great to work with 🙂 Baby C’s gorgeous mama loves soft neutrals so my photography style was a perfect fit. She brought some soft, plush stuffed animals from his nursery in pretty creams and beige that we used as inspiration for his newborn photos. Ivory, gray and tan with white are absolutely perfect. The family also brought a stunning quilt and pillow sham made by their baby’s late grandmother so we incorporated those in the session too. Congrats C family! Here are a few favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

sleepy 11 day old baby boy ~ furry big sister {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn

I loved meeting this sweet 11 day old baby boy! His family of 4 (including his furry big sister ;)) came to my studio and he was such a sleepy little guy. So sleepy in fact that he slept the WHOLE time. We didn’t have to stop to feed him once! I’ve been anxiously waiting for his arrival since I met his parents for their maternity shoot a few weeks ago. We had so much fun! Big sis G was on her best behavior yesterday too…the “sibling shot” is always my favorite and this one is pretty adorable. Baby W is loooong! But he still let me curl him up in the tiniest positions <3 His gorgeous mama brought some samples from his nursery that we used as inspiration for his newborn photos. Grays and soft blues with white are absolutely perfect. The family are also big Notre Dame fans so we incorporated one of their flags in the session too. Congrats W family! Here are a few favorites from our time together – Enjoy!
