welcome baby girl {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn | No Comments

We had the best newborn session this morning! This family welcomed a baby girl last week (you’ll remember her from the sweet fresh 48 video I just shared!) and they are completely smitten with her. You’ll remember mama from her stunning maternity shoot last month. We decided to do a “before and after” of her then and now in a few of her favorite lace gowns. Love how these turned out! Also, mama is a talented singer and brought her guitar for us to incorporate into the shoot. Through the magic of photoshop we got the precious image below <3  I have a special love for 3 generation photos and it is so special when I get to include grandparents into the gallery! You can see how much these new grands are incredibly proud of their daughter and so in love with their new granddaughter. So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again M family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

24 hour old baby girl – birth video {uptown charlotte newborn photos}

By | fresh 48, newborn | No Comments

Sweet baby girl M decided to come about a week before her due date and we are so happy she did! I got to meet her when she was less than 24 hours old to do her birth-fresh 48 video! Time flew by since I saw mama last for her stunning autumn maternity session! Mama delivered at CMC Main in Uptown Charlotte and it was such a special time. There was so much love and joy beaming from the whole family for little Cadence Faith. I like to document these birth videos to show the true, simple beauty of life when all you have to do is snuggle your newborn. Cadence was very alert for a lot of the time and even lifted her head up for a few seconds! The look of wonder in a baby’s eyes this young is so magical! We used a special song recording in the video that Cadence’s mama made – her version of Sanctuary, a cover from Nashville featuring Charles Esten and Lennon & Maisy. Soooo gorgeous and so perfect in every way. The lyrics describe exactly the type of mother she wants to be for Cadence: always there for her, for security, safety , and a sanctuary. <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the M family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

baby brother makes 4 {charlotte new born photography}

Yesterday morning was amazing! This new family of 4 welcomed a baby brother and we had the best newborn session. I just shared their precious Fresh 48 video and yesterday was the icing on the cake 🙂 Dad and the boys arrived at my studio in Lake Wylie a little early and we did the sibling photos first. Big brother S was soooooo good and we got the sweetest photos of him with Savan. Mama arrived a bit later and looked absolutely stunning – no way she just had a baby two weeks ago! I’ve known this family since doing their older son’s newborn photos in 2013 so there were a few we wanted to try and do again this time. Well, it was my lucky day because the one shot mama loved so much happened AGAIN! Laying on the floor, Savan looked up at me with big bright eyes just the same way his big bro did 4 years ago – how awesome is this comparison of the two images side by side?! So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again P family, now party of 4!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

By | fresh 48, newborn | No Comments

So in love with this birth-fresh 48 video! This baby boy has been a long time coming and was absolutely worth the wait <3 I got to take his big brother’s newborn photos and am honored to have this family come back to me again! Mama delivered at Novant Women’s Center in Matthews and I came to see them when their little guy was barely 48 hours old. This special time families experience at the hospital or birth center are such a blur! I love being able to create these keepsake videos that help them remember how precious time is with their newborn. The look of wonder in a baby’s eyes this young is so magical! Be sure to watch through to the very end of the video too – I’m so excited I got to include them getting his footprints made. <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the P family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

Last time I saw this sweet family was for their baby girl’s epic fresh 48 session!  We were talking about the video again today (and how we were all bawling watching it) – one of my all time favorites!! This morning they came to my studio from North Charlotte and we had an amazing newborn session. When they got here Baby B was nice and sleepy so we started with the bean bag poses before moving to some unique family photos mama wanted. I loooooove this whole series of sneaks for them. The daddy shot with baby girl in his hands is another all time favorite! I am changing up my floor set ups a bit too and was excited to do something different. So excited to share these sneaks and for the family to see their maternity and newborn galleries soon! Congrats again B family – loved seeing yall and capturing this special time! <3  Here are several favorites from our session – Enjoy!

I spent my morning today with this awesome family for their new little bro’s newborn session! I just shared their Fresh 48 session and loooove the sibling sweetness in their video. Big brother M was amazing and super sweet when they arrived at my studio in Lake Wylie. He totally rocked their photos together – held his baby brother like a champ AND gave him the cutest little kiss. My heart totally melted! <3  Baby K was a dream and didn’t fuss a bit the entire time. I love all the neutrals we used for this shoot. Mama wanted these images to go with the same grays and muted tones we used at their last newborn session with M.  So excited to share these images <3  Congrats again K family, now party of 4!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!

baby brother – 24 hours old video {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | fresh 48, newborn

So much love in this birth-fresh 48 video today! I have known this family for many years and photographed their first son M back in 2014. Time has flown by! Now they are holding his newborn baby brother in their arms. Mama delivered at Presbyterian Medical Center Uptown Charlotte  and I came to see them when little Ryder was just 24 hours old. There is not much sweeter than a newborn baby sneeze and Ryder was FULL of them! So much so that I was like, ok I’ve GOT to catch one of these on film! Fortunately I caught two on video and one still shot – so precious 🙂 When big brother M came to the room to meet his little bro you could see the look of awe and amazement in his eyes! It’s that moment when they realize that mommy had really been carrying a tiny person in her belly…shock and then joy <3 Watching him hold Ryder for the first time was too precious!  This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again K family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

fresh 48 hour old baby girl – birth video {charlotte newborn portraits}

By | fresh 48, newborn

Yep. I spent my afternoon bawling my eyes out while I was putting together this epic birth-fresh 48 video today! Serious ovary tugging going on. These moments parents live at the hospital or birth center the first few days after their babies arrive are such a blur! They also seem a little chaotic with doctors and nurses always coming in, no sleep, getting used to life with a hungry new baby…it’s hard to see the beauty in these moments! But that is where my job comes in. I hope to show parents how special this fleeting time really is and help them remember all those tiny details about their baby at only 24-48 hours old! Last time I saw this sweet couple was for their gorgeous maternity session and now they are finally holding their newborn baby girl. Mama delivered at Presbyterian Medical Center Uptown Charlotte  and I came to see them when their little Maggie was barely 48 hours old. These two are doing an amazing job with their new daughter! <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to the B family!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!

Ohmigoodness, look at this sweet girl! You’ll recognize her from her fresh 48 session I just did, but this time she slept the morning away 🙂 Her mama was afraid she might want to eat the whole time but I shared some of my old tricks to keep babies sleepy and cozy for photos <3 When they got to my studio it was nice an toasty and we got started with the curly bean bag poses because they had a long drive from the Lake Norman area. Babies love that car ride! When they get here they are usually in a deep sleep and Baby S rocked her whole shoot. I even caught a little smile from her when we did the daddy daughter pose! So excited to share these sneaks and for the family to see their maternity and newborn galleries soon! Congrats again S family – loved seeing yall and capturing this special time! <3  Here are several favorites from our session – Enjoy!

It was so good to see this adorable couple again for their birth-fresh 48 video! Last time I saw them was for their stunning maternity session and now they are finally holding their newborn baby girl. Born at 10lbs, 6oz and she is all cheeks!! 🙂 Mama delivered at Lake Norman Regional Hospital and I came to see them when their baby girl was a little over a day old. The thing with big babies…they loooove to eat, hehe. I got some sweet snuggly shots and I love the breastfeeding footage so much. There is nothing like that bond between mother and baby! And daddy is already a rock star at changing his little girl’s diapers. These two are doing an amazing job just less than 2 days into the new parenting gig! <3 This video was taken in 4K HD with my new equipment <3) – still having so much fun with it! Congrats again to this gorgeous couple!! Excited to see yall again very soon for your newborn session. Here are a few photos and the special video highlight from our time together – Enjoy!
