thank heaven baby girl {charlotte maternity portraits}

By | maternity

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 😉  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 🙂 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!

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 🙂 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!

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. 🙂 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 😉 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!

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}

By | maternity

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 😉 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!

I adore this family! And I’m so excited to share their maternity photos 🙂 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 🙂 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! 😉 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!

springtime baby girl {fort mill sc maternity photography}

By | maternity

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 🙂 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 😉 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 🙂  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!

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!

newborn twin sisters ~ autumn birth {fort mill baby photographer}

By | newborn, twins

I’m totally googley eyed over these gorgeous newborn twin sisters!! You may recognize them from the recent Fresh 48 video I did for them – soooooo sweet <3 I loved doing a special hospital photography session for them and now we got to play again in my Lake Wylie studio! We had been waiting to find out pink or blue and I’m loving that dad has alllll these gorgeous girls. Since the gender was a surprise the babies nursery is in neutrals and we used a lot of grays and white at the shoot. The fall leaves are just starting to turn so I really wanted to bring some of that warm color into the session. Love how the final image turned out! I pulled the same beautiful gown that mama wore at her maternity session to use as a fabric backdrop for them. The parents also brought the cutest quilts made by the girls’ grandmother and we incorporated those as well. Possibly the most excited was big sister N. She is in love with her new little sisters and had a permanent smile on her face the whole time. I am so excited to share these images! Congrats W family – your babies are absolutely PERFECT! <3 Here are a few sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!
