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 🙂  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 😉 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 😉 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. 😀 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!

autumn baby girl due {rock hill maternity photographer}

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!

expecting a baby boy {north charlotte maternity photos}

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 😉 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. 🙂 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 🙂 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

summertime surprise baby {lancaster sc maternity photography}

June is off to a great start with another gorgeous maternity session last night! This pretty mama-to-be and her family came to visit my Lake Wylie studio  all the way from Lancaster, SC. They are keeping the gender a surprise and are so excited to meet their new baby this summer. 🙂 We met early to do hair and makeup right before we began. Baby B’s mama is absolutely glowing! I love the soft fresh tones and pretty up-do she chose. We started with some intimate photos inside and then went up to the gardens. She brought a beautiful gown to wear and I love the pretty feminine print in the floral setting. The weather was perfect and we came back to wind down at sunset in the lake. SUCH an amazing evening!! 🙂 Congrats on Baby B!! I loved meeting your family and can’t wait to meet the newest addition in a few short weeks! Here are some favorites from our time together. <3

I am so happy for this sweet mama and her family! Thank heaven for baby girls 🙂 They will be welcoming a little sister this summer and are so excited! I can relate to this completely since we also got our girl after two boys. She will be very loved and well-protected by them for sure! <3 This stunning mama came as a referral from another fantastic maternity-first year client and we had such a fun session! She came from Fort Mill to my studio in Lake Wylie a little early to have her hair and makeup done right before we began. I love the gorgeous natural look she chose. We used a variety of soft, feminine tones and went up to the gardens after some studio shots. Her two boys are ALL BOY. Ha! They reminded me so much of my boys too – go go go allllll the time. But we managed to get some really precious moments of them with her and her baby belly. After the gardens we took a little detour at the beach and then wrapped up by the lake. It was HOT yesterday! By the time we got to the water it felt amazing to cool down a bit. Not to mention the gorgeous sunset we had too (AND nooooo rain!!!)! Very excited to see this family back in a few weeks for their baby girl’s newborn session! 🙂 Here are a few favorites from our time together <3  Enjoy!
