new year surprise ~ baby tolbert #3 {charlotte north carolina photographer}

By | family, petite

I am SO HAPPY to see the amazing Tolbert family again!! Even better, I get to share some fantastic news…Baby Tolbert #3 is on the way! Their “tiebreaker” is due in May 2017. I am thrilled for Shianette and Mike. They make the sweetest babies!! Last time I saw them was for Major’s 1 year photos. He has grown up into a silly little wild man (ummm, no clue where he gets that from…ha!) and we had so much fun at our session. Mikeala is such a sweet and sassy girl. I love her side smiles and perfectly girly poses 😉 We started out with the “announcement” photos first. These were part of their holiday cards this year so I’ve been waiting until I could post them here! Cute beyond words. After that we did some more family photos. I think in every gallery I’ve done for them I have had to include a few outtakes, and this is no exception. Between Major’s sillies, Mike’s duckface and the tough guy poses…hahaha I was dying. Love this family and it’s an honor to be able to capture this special announcement for them!! Here are a few favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

baby major turns 1 year old! ~ the tolbert family {north carolina baby photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I was so excited to see this awesome family again last night! It is hard to believe that little Major just turned 1 year old! Time has flown by since we met for their maternity and newborn photos last year – look how big this sweet guy is now!! When Shianette contacted me to set up a date we weren’t sure if he would be walking or not but he is totally mobile and on the move 🙂 We also didn’t know what kind of shape Mike would be in for the session, but we are all thankful he is back and better than new. We started out with a few photos of the kids in my studio and then went outdoors to enjoy the gorgeous autumn weather! I stole collected several bags of the prettiest leaves in my neighborhood yesterday for them to play in and the whole family had too much fun! Big sister Mikeala was all about throwing leaves and tackling her daddy. So so cute <3 I’m so honored to capture Major’s 1 year milestone for the Tolbert family! He is already a little heartbreaker so watch out 😉 Here are a few sneak peeks from our time together. Enjoy!

It was so good to see the Tolbert family again yesterday for their newborn session! We had a fun, gorgeous maternity shoot a few weeks ago and now their baby boy is finally here. I feel so fortunate to share this special time with them! The family of 4 came back to my studio and they just adore their new little guy. We were able to capture some special shots using Mike‘s helmet, jersey and football. Big sister Mikeala LOVES her brother sooo much – she must have given him a hundred kisses throughout the shoot! And their sweet mama could not be more beautiful just 14 short days after giving birth <3 Congrats to the Tolbert family! Meet precious Major. 🙂

Somehow it is already mid-October and Fall is finally here! This special session has been on my calendar since August and I’m soo honored to capture maternity and newborn photos for the Tolbert family.  Mike, Shianette and their sweet 2 year old daughter Mikeala have called Charlotte home for a little over a year and are very excited for their baby boy to arrive in November!

We had planned to meet last week but the unpredictable North Carolina weather was gray and drizzily.  I’m so glad we waited and took our chances because yesterday was gorrrrgeous. The sun came out and we had a great time!  When I first spoke to Shianette we immediately got along.  She is just as beautiful in person as over the phone.  Little Mikeala was waking up from a nap when they arrived but it didn’t take long to get some smiles out of her.  Mike had us all laughing and was such a good sport for the shoot 🙂 When we left I got hugs from everyone – they are truly the kindest family you’d ever hope to meet!  Very excited to share these maternity photos and can’t wait to meet their baby boy for his newborn photos next month <3  Enjoy!
