welcome baby girl {davidson newborn photographer}

By | newborn

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 ūüôā 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 ‚Äď Enjoy!

happy new year ~ baby girl 8 days old {charlotte newborn photography}

By | newborn

Happy 2016!! ¬†This morning I got to snuggle with the sweetest baby girl, just 8 days new. What an amazing way to kick off this year! I have been counting down the days to meet this beautiful girl since meeting her family at their gorgeous autumn maternity session a few weeks ago. Today was freeeeezing cold outside but it was nice and cozy¬†in¬†my studio. Baby R’s nursery is decorated in soft pink and green so we used some of those colors in her floor set ups. I love the flower crowns her parents picked out to use too ~ perfect for a little fairy princess <3 Towards the end of the session I could tell she was in a¬†really deep sleep. The kind where babies tend to smile…and I caught a little grin from her ūüôā¬†Congrats R family!! So happy I could spend my first session of 2016 with you!¬†<3 Here are several¬†favorites¬†from our time together¬†‚Äď Enjoy!

autumn maternity ~ NYE baby girl {ballantyne pregnancy photography}

By | maternity

Friday the 13th could not have been a prettier day for this couple’s¬†maternity photos. November is one of the most gorgeous times of year for both foliage and sunsets in Lake Wylie.¬†We got the best of both this year! I was excited to use my¬†new raft in the lake again with this stunning mama-to-be.¬†I got to try out my new waders too – I may look silly but I stayed dry as a bone and (more importantly) I got my¬†sunset water¬†shot. ūüėȬ†¬† This pretty mama and her husband are expecting a baby girl on New Years Eve and they are so excited. We started in the studio¬†with Erin and Lindsay working their magic for¬†makeup and hair. I love the dreamy white on white silhouette – absolutely timeless. We went outside to my favorite setting this¬†time of year! All the autumn colors are incredible. We made a quick stop by the gardens for a few photos by the roses. We ran into my neighbor who tends the garden and he clipped a few for the couple to bring home with them <3 Finally we¬†wrapped up with a beautiful sunset on the lake. So excited to see this family back again for their¬†newborn photos. Baby girl¬†will be here before we know it. ¬†ūüėČ ¬†¬†Here are a few favorites from our time together¬†<3 ¬†Enjoy!

precious 1 month old baby girl ~ family of 3 {newborn photographer charlotte nc}

By | newborn

I really do have the best clients <3 The highest compliment they can give me is to refer me to a friend and I do pretty much anything to accommodate them into my crazy schedule! This new family of 3 are friends with another awesome pair of new parents I did newborn photos for a few weeks ago. Their precious baby girl just turned 1 month old! Even though she was a bit outside my usual 2 week window she was a great baby at her session ūüôā For already 4 weeks old she is still tiny, but looooong. She liked being snuggled up so we kept her wrapped and cozy.¬†I love all her fluffy hair!! So soft and perfect combined with these dreamy set ups. At the end she woke up and gave me the cutest wide-eyed stare. What a doll. Congrats M family! Here are a few favorites¬†from our session ‚Äď Enjoy!

baby boy J ~ happy smiles at 8 days new {newborn photographer charlotte nc}

By | newborn

Such a fun photo session yesterday! Happy baby boy J and his family came to my studio¬†for his¬†newborn photos and he was so full of smiles!!¬†<3¬†Some babies just have that innate smileyness and I absolutely love catching them at a photo shoot.¬†Baby J’s¬†nursery is a gorgeous mix of grays, white, navy blue and yellow¬†so we had splashes of those colors in his¬†set ups. His big bro H was so proud of his little bro and I love the sibling photo ūüôā Aside from flashing smiles Baby J was also making the sweetest gestures with his hands. The best is capturing babies¬†natural positions that they fall into without me even posing them. He was a great sleeper so¬†at the end we broke baby code and I tried to wake him for an eyes open shot too…he opened them, but only for an instant before drifting back into sleep. So adorable <3 Congrats J¬†family! Here are a few favorites¬†from our session ‚Äď Enjoy!

By | maternity

Gah! We had such a fantastic time at¬†last night’s maternity shoot! This family of 3 (soon to be 4 ;)) was so much fun!¬†We met at my studio¬†a little early for this beautiful mama to get her hair¬†and makeup¬†done before the session – my glam team did an amazing job as usual <3 Then we started with some fabric wraps before going to the park. This awesome couple is expecting a baby girl this fall and I just love the warm tones from their shoot. Baby N’s furry sibling T was SUCH a good pup. Mama-to-be was hoping we could get him to lay on her belly and it was like magic. He is going to be the BEST big brother ūüôā¬†¬†I can’t wait to see them again for their baby girl’s¬†newborn photos! <3 ¬†Here are a few sneak peeks¬†from our session – Enjoy!
