baby blue bundle of joy {south charlotte maternity photos}

By | maternity

I adore this family! And I’m so excited to share their¬†maternity photos ūüôā I got to see them last year for their little man’s 1 year milestone, and now he is going to have a baby brother soon!! We met at¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie and mama had her¬†makeup done first before the session. So fresh and gorgeous! We did some intimate photos to start and once the boys arrived got to do some with their 2 year old son L (who has grown up SO MUCH!)¬†<3 At this age we just roll with it, hehe. Most parents leave the session thinking we got nothing…buuuuut we do ūüôā Sometimes it takes a while but that’s just¬†part of it! How sweeet are these mommy and me photos? I also love the gowns mama chose to wear. Once we finished inside we went up to a big field near my studio. It has rained for the past 4 days so even though the ground was a little wet, it made all the plants super lush! We wrapped up in the lake…which was still pretty chilly, but worth it! ūüėČ Can’t wait to see everyone again soon for their special Fresh 48/Hospital session before the newborn shoot <3¬†Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

I love watching my newborns become big siblings! Last time I saw this sweet girl and her family she was only 11 days old…now she is going to have a baby sister in just a few short weeks ūüôā Their family came to¬†my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie for¬†hair and makeup¬†before the shoot. We had such a fun time! With toddlers age 2-3 we kind of go with the flow, but it was so easy. She was super cute playing in the studio before we went outside! I know C is going to be adorable once her little sis arrives. The plants are all confused around here because of the crazy weather this year. I wasn’t sure where to go outdoors with them, but one of my favorite fields finally started to show a few pretty purple blooms! It worked out perrrrfectly. Mama looked absolutely stunning and brought some fabulous wardrobe options! Love the Spring vibe with the soft pinks and white <3 We rocked the lake out at the end too (yes, it was still a little chilly! :-p)! The water is a bit high right now and my mama is tiiiiny but we made the magic happen ūüėČ 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!

spring pregnancy {lake wylie maternity photographer}

By | maternity

I’m so excited to share these maternity photos! Beautiful mama is expecting a baby girl this Spring and has had a wonderful pregnancy so far <3 ¬†She lives right around the corner from my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. Because of this we felt it absolutely necessary to get some lake photos ūüôā ¬†Yes – it’s barely March¬†and we got in the lake. I won’t tell you it was warm but it’s *always worth it*. How amazing are these lake images?! Absolutely perfect pregnancy curves. She wanted to go bold with color and I adore the violet gown she chose! Before the lake we started with some intimate studio shots after she got her¬†hair and makeup done. The blue wrap gown is one of my all time favorites – mama.rocked.it. ¬†We went to a few places nearby for outdoor photos…the golfers kept sneaking up on us yesterday, ha! So I decided to take her to one of my favorite spots that I never take clients to because it doesnt look like much driving up…but the light is so pretty! Mama was a good sport and I love the sparkley trees in the backdrop. Only a few more weeks until I get to meet her husband and son at their Fresh 48 session! This family came to me as a special referral and I am so happy I get to capture this special time for them <3 Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

autumn baby gender reveal {belmont maternity photographer}

By | maternity

Last night was SO MUCH FUN! I met this sweet couple to do a special autumn maternity session and gender reveal. What a special gift I got to share with them! The catch…they are keeping it a secret until their baby shower later this month! Sooooo, I can’t show the full video and photos until then (but stay tuned because it was AWESOME and I plan to share it ;))! They came from Belmont to my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. I know they were anxious for the reveal (as was I!) but we still had some time to get a few beautiful studio shots first. Mama brought a gorgeous evergreen bralette and we wrapped her¬†a skirt with one of my many fabrics.¬†She got changed into one of my new winter gowns and we went to a nearby field for the reveal. Earlier yesterday I made the gift box for them to open and filled it full of helium balloons. It was total magic when they lifted up the lid! Next time I need to remember to bring a box of tissues ūüėČ Baby’s nursery is decorated in a light gray so we switched wardrobe to a stunning silver gown for a few more photos before heading back to the lake. Yes – it’s mid October and we got in the lake. I won’t tell you it was warm but it’s *always worth it*. How amazing are these lake images?! Absolutely perfect pregnancy curves. And the sunset was onfiyah!! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together. Make sure to check back at the end of the month for the full gender reveal!!

autumn baby boy pregnancy {charlotte nc maternity photos}

By | maternity

Last night we had an absolutely stunning¬†autumn maternity photo session! This couple is expecting a baby boy and they are having an awesome pregnancy so far. They came Charlotte, NC to my¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie, SC. Baby boy S’s grandfather contacted me and wanted to give them these images as a baby gift – it’s always an honor to be asked to capture something so incredibly special to a family! We started out indoors and mama-to-be rocked this entire session. I love the studio set ups and fabrics we used. The parents have some fabulous body art that we were able to incorporate too. They are going with fall colors for their nursery and the season was smiling upon us as we moved outside. Usually I will go around and find the prettiest leaves in my neighborhood to use at a shoot. But thankfully we had some already fallen as we got to the field nearby. The gardens are still in bloom and we had gorgeous¬†golden hour light too! The weather has gotten a little cooler but it’s still not too cold for the lake yet ūüėČ We wrapped up with a pretty pink and blue sunset – perfection! Congrats S Family – loved meeting you and had such a fun time together!! Here are a few favorite photos from our maternity¬†session!

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. ūüėĬ†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!

This awesome family¬†is expecting a baby girl this autumn¬†and they are thrilled! We had another fun maternity session last Friday (I’m behind on posting because I turned a year older on Saturday…getting old is rough! ;))! They came from their home in Rock Hill¬†up to my home¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. I met them through our mutual friend Kymm, who also came to do mother-daughter hair and makeup before the shoot! I am absolutely loving these glowy summer mamas with fresh faces and perfectly tossed curls – absolutely gorgeous!¬†We started¬†up to the gardens because we had a little late start with back to school open houses. It was H.O.T.!¬†We got some precious images of their daughter J kissing her mommy’s belly and I love the family photos too.¬†Then we came back to catch the last little bit of sunlight on¬†the lake. After the sun went down daddy took daughter home and left mama with me to play in the studio. She loves bold colors and this sapphire dress looks stunning on her! We also incorporated a special blanket the family has to snuggle¬†baby girl. Congrats M Family!! Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!

It was so great to see this sweet¬†family again! They are expecting a baby boy¬†this summer and came from their home on North Charlotte¬†down¬†to my home¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. The last time I saw them was for their precious baby girl’s newborn session – time has flown by!!¬†We have had this shoot scheduled for months and all yesterday I was tracking the weather (as usual). Of course, we made it ALL day without any rain and about 5pm the thunder clouds start to roll in…Oh boy. It’s safe to say I was in panic mode when I saw this huge cloud making its way across the lake! Thankfully Mother Nature came to our rescue and after some studio photos we were able to go up to the gardens. I don’t know if it was the rain, or the humidity or the crazy love these two have that was fogging up my lens ūüėČ but whatever it was I adore these images. Even better, we got the most gorgeous pink and blue sunset while we were in the lake. It really was the beautiful calm after the storm. Here are a few favorite photos AND short video from our time together (made even more special by the song selection played by baby boy’s daddy, Jay Mathey). <3 ¬†Enjoy!

It was so great to see this soon-to-be family of 4 again! They are expecting a baby girl this summer and came from their home on Lake Norman down¬†to my home¬†studio¬†in Lake Wylie. The last time I saw them their little guy was just a 9 day old newborn. ¬†He has grown up to be such a handsome fella! His gorgeous mama came early to have her hair and makeup done right before we began. I am absolutely loving these glowy summer mamas with fresh faces and perfectly tossed curls – I couldn’t ask for¬†an easier subject to photograph.¬†ūüôā We started with some photos on my favorite flower wall and then made our way up to the gardens. It was H.O.T.!¬†We moved pretty quickly there and then came back to get in the lake. It’s obvious how much their little guy loves the water – he flashed¬†the bigggest smile when he got to go in the lake with his mama. In addition to their photos, I also got to take some video footage of the session. I’m still a rookie in that arena but it was so.much.fun. You’ll be seeing more of these in the future! Here are a few favorite photos AND short video from our time together¬†<3 ¬†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 ūüôā 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
