sweet alice jane ~ our girl is 2.5 years old {lake wylie baby photographer}

By | family, my boys, our girl | No Comments

Another year, another better late than never post for milestone photos! Our sweet Alice Jane turned 2.5 years last month and time is flying by! School started back for the boys and Alice also started her first 2 day pre-school – sob!! My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Life is still happy chaos around here. I’m still always behind between sessions, teaching my classes, family time and everything else.

Alice is still as sassy as she is sweet…she truly is the perfect completion to our family ūüôā Her brothers adore her and she is a girly girl through and through. Loves to play dress up, dolls and her favorite colors are purple and pink. <3

 

I have taken Alice’s¬†newborn,¬†1 month,¬†2 month,¬†3 month¬†4 month,¬†5 month,¬†6 month,¬†7 month,¬†8 month,¬†9 month,¬†10 month,¬†11 month,¬†1 year,¬†18 month¬†and a few 2 year photos along with a short list of things she’s doing/personality at the ages.

Here we are at 2.5 years! Some of her milestones are:

We love our girl more than words can say! Here she is at 2.5 years old:

There must be something in the water this year because I seem to have the most baby girls due, thank heaven! It’s been so much fun going girly. <3 ¬†This sweet couple is thrilled to be welcoming a daughter and they are so so in love. Our session was absolutely perrrrfect! They came to my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and mama got her hair and makeup done just before we started. I’m so happy I can offer this pampering to my clients! What lady doesn’t love to be pampered a bit, especially when you are 34 weeks pregnant ūüėȬ†¬†We started in the studio and had fun with some beautiful fabrics and intimate portraits. Mama brought some gorgeous lace robes we used too. The weather has been a little cooler lately (like in the 80s, ha!) and we had an amazing time walking around the gardens. I took them to my usual favorite spots and then we went to a new area with stunning wildflowers in bloom. Mama sent me several shots from my maternity portfolio¬†that she loved, and we got to try some new ones too. Best part? Dad grew up on Lake Norman and was game to join mama in the lake – <3 <3 <3 ! I could have photographed them allllllll night. The sunset was incredible too – pinks and blues made an awesome purple glow. Such a magical night ūüôā I am so excited I get to see them again for their Fresh 48 session and then newborn! Also, I’m excited to showcase my newly refreshed branding on this post – hope y’all like the new look! <3 ¬†Here are a few favorite photos from Friday’s maternity session!

the b family of 6 {lancaster baby photography}

By | 1 year old, family

Yay! Last night I got to see the B family again for a special extended session ūüôā We met not too long ago when Baby B turned one, but this time we got to include all of her big siblings in the photos! This girl is so incredibly loved <3 They came¬†to my studio¬†from Lancaster and we had so much fun!¬†Thankfully the weather cooled down for us just a little bit (yes, I’ll take 86 over 106 degrees alllll day!) and it could not have been nicer for late July. We started in the studio so I could get a few of Baby B in an adorable little blue romper and bow set from Feltman Brothers (part of my studio collection!). Ohmigoodness, those chunky legs and cheeks tho – I die! Baby B just started walking (and has been getting some new teeth in…) so she was happiest walking around and exploring outside. We went to the gardens for some portraits and then let her do a little wandering. Baby B’s dad is a camera enthusiast and possibly the coolest part of the shoot was me getting to play with his 400mm lens (which was almost literally as big as I am, ha!!). I’m going to have to borrow it again as soon as I build up about 20 extra pounds of arm muscles ūüėČ hehehe <3 So good to see everyone again!! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

baby girl coming soon {davidson maternity photographer}

By | maternity

It was such a fun evening yesterday with this adorable couple! They came from Davidson to¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and are expecting a baby girl in a few short weeks. They are completely smitten and (like so many of my clients) have been dreaming about her for a long time. Mama-to-be is absolutely glowing and has had a wonderful pregnancy so far (besides the usual first trimester yuckiness :-p )! She came to have her hair and makeup done before we started – I love her style <3 We started in the studio and had such a fun time with some beautiful fabrics and wraps. Once her husband arrived we went up to walk around the gardens for a bit. She had saved several shots from my maternity portfolio¬†to show me that she loved, so we had fun using those for inspiration too. It was hooooooot and the lake was such a refreshing way to wrap up the evening – not to mention we got the perfect summer sunset! It was a magical night ūüôā I am so thrilled I get to see them again for their Fresh 48 session and then newborn! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

baby b turns 1! {lancaster family photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I am so happy to see this fabulous family again! Their little Baby B (or BB ;)) is turning 1 and this past year has flown by. They came¬†to my studio¬†from Lancaster and we had a fantastic evening. Mama brought some adorable tutus for us to photograph so we started with those before doing the¬†cake smash. How sweet is her bee cake too?! We weren’t sure she was going to go for it but after a little help with the icing from mama she dug in. This is the first time in a while I’ve had a¬†first year milestone¬†baby actually eat their cake! It was so cute – she even made “nomnomnom” sound effects in the process, hehe. After getting cleaned up we went to the gardens for more family photos. Mama told me Baby B loooooves bubbles so we went to town with them (and no, they aren’t photoshopped on!)! She was in total awe. It was perfect! The balloons also kept her happy and busy for a good while. Once we wrapped up there we had one more special photo to do back at the studio – I love how this turned out! They brought one of their beautiful canvases from the newborn session and we did a side by side with their girl now. It’s amazing to see how much babies change in just one year! So great to see you again B family, and I’ll see you again very soon <3 ¬†Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

gender surprise ~ almost family of 5 {davidson maternity photography}

By | maternity

It was so great to see this awesome family again on Friday! I did their maternity and newborn photos for their baby girl and now she is an adorable toddler! And even more exciting, they have baby#3 on the way! They came from Davidson to¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and we had such a great shoot. Mama looked stunning!! and we had fun picking out their wardrobe before we started. With little kiddos things can get crazy (and parents feel like there is no way we got any photos!)…but we do. ūüôā Yes, we do head swaps but overall I really do my best to make sure we are going to get a gallery of images you will truly adore forever. We went to the gardens and then came back by the studio for a few more outdoor family shots. The kids were troopers and we even got them to get in the lake at the end! Little sis S was actually more excited about that than anything else I think ūüėČ The water is super high these days so we chose a new location that worked out perfectly. It’s a honor to have clients come back to me over the years and to be able to capture this special time for¬†them¬†<3 Can’t wait to find out if they will be adding a baby boy or girl in a few weeks! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

happy 1 year baby girl {huntersville family photography}

By | 1 year old, family

I¬†had another fun 1 year session last night! This happy baby girl and her¬†family came¬†to my studio¬†from Huntersville and we had a fantastic evening. I set up several backgrounds for us to use before doing the¬†cake smash. I love the soft, pretty tones in my flower wall. Perfect for little girls! Baby G’s birthday party is today so we gave her the very first taste of cake…annnd she wasn’t so interested, ha! But the balloons were a huge hit ūüôā She grabbed hold of one little gold glitter balloon and that was her favorite. I think the only thing she might have liked more is clapping – so cute how much she loves to clap her hands! We went up to the gardens and got some beautiful family photos!¬†By the time we got back to the studio the sun was perfectly setting by the lake. I adore the¬†photo of mama with her girl in the water! So honored I was able to capture her¬†first year milestone! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

baby girl’s first birthday {arboretum family photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

It was so great to see one of my newborns again last night for her¬†1 year session! Last time I saw them she was for a petite session around her¬†6 month milestone and she is the CUTEST.EVER. ¬†Her¬†family came¬†to my studio¬†and we had such a fun evening. We started out with some photos of her¬†in a precious embroidered¬†outfit before moving to the¬†cake smash.¬†It’s always funny to see what babies do when they get a cake in front of them…baby girl is clearly not a fan! Hahaha. That face she makes is the BEST. The nose scrunch is just too much! After we cleaned her up we made our way over to the beach for some family portraits. I absolutely love mom’s outfit and the bare bum beach shot came out so sweet! We wrapped up with sunset in the lake. So much gorgeousness from one session!¬†I’m so honored I was able to capture her¬†first year milestone¬†along with the others! Happy birthday sweet girl! Here are a few images from our time together – enjoy!

little sister ~ almost family of 6 {pineville maternity photographer}

By | maternity

This session is so special to me! I have known this family (of almost 6!) for years and they are related to another fabulous family in my neighborhood that I love. <3 Every time I get to see this gorgeous mama we would kinda dream up this perfect shoot IF (when… ;)) they decided to have #4…and little sister is on her way soon. So my Cinco de Mayo was spent celebrating the wonderful news they are going from a family of cinco to seis! They came to¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and mama got her hair and makeup done before we started. She brought her sweet mother too and I just love capturing the 3 generations together! <3 Her husband surprised her with a stunning vase of her favorite flowers – pink peonies. Ohmigoodness. The blooms were to die for! They were the perfect accent to the session. We set up the studio and did some photos indoors with the kiddos first. The boys were totally hamming it up and they absolutely adore their mama. We went outside to the gardens – finally in bloom!! How beautiful is this family shot?! Everyone did GREAT. Especially considering it was¬†unusually cooler yesterday. Mama¬†even rocked it out in the lake at sunset.¬†Love these photos so much!¬†It’s a honor to capture this special time for¬†them¬†<3 Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

summertime baby girl {fort mill sc maternity photos}

I love watching my newborns become big siblings! It’s hard to believe it’s already been 2 years since they came to¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie for their adorable son’s newborn session. Now he is going to have a baby sister! My heart might explode, especially if she is even half as cute as her older brother¬†ūüėČ The rainy season has started but we got an absolutely gorgeous evening last night. We had some fun indoors until somebody got stir crazy…ok, well it was inevitable after he saw the lake, ha! Somehow we convinced him we needed to go look for the lake and managed to get some family photos outside before going back down to the water, YAY! It was actually pretty hot out last night but the water was still a wee bit chilly :-p But again, it’s always worth it! Love these photos so much! Only a few more weeks until I get to see them again¬†at their Fresh 48 session! It’s a honor for them to come back to me and to be able to share this time with them¬†<3 Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!
