turning 4! extended family shoot {charlotte nc child photographer}

By | family

This handsome little guy just turned 4! For his birthday all of his extended family was in town so his mom wanted to have some shots taken with everyone. I’ve known T since he was a toddler and it’s been fun to watch him grow. Their family lives in my neighborhood and our boys have a great time playing together. Kids really do grow up SO fast.  I’m always honored when friends become clients! <3  Here are some sneak peek photos of our time together.  Enjoy!

Happy New Year! I’m so glad that my first session in 2014 back after the holiday was with this sweet family. I’ve known Mama for several years and she is also great friends with one of my family clients. The afternoon we met was the perfect chilly winter day. The weather has been a little overcast and craaazy cold (for SC…thats 29 degrees, brrr! :)) but I actually love shooting outdoors on a cloudy day – the muted light yesterday was so soft and pretty for their shoot. Her daughters have grown up to be such beautiful young ladies! I even managed to catch a chuckle from dad a few times too <3  Here are some sneak peek photos of our time together.  Enjoy!

family of 5 falling in love with autumn {fort mill sc family photographer}

By | family

I was so happy to meet this sweet family last evening! It’s always a huge honor to be referred by friends to photograph their family, and especially for a large family session.   Mama G wanted some updated photos with her husband, daughters and son that captured real emotion and personality.  It was such a fun shoot!  We were supposed to meet Saturday evening but mother nature rained on our parade…I was just starting to set up and felt the first drops of rain. Ugh!  So we met Sunday instead and the weather was gorgeous!  I met them at the waterfront park by my studio and we spent the evening playing and watching the sunset down by the lake.  The changing leaves are in FULL effect now and Lake Wylie is an autumn wonderland! I love the warmth of this session <3  Here are some sneak peek photos of our time together.  Enjoy!

summertime pregnancy ~ almost family of 3 {charlotte maternity photographer}

By | maternity

Tonight I met another adorable couple for their maternity session! Their baby girl is due the beginning of August and her little mama is absolutely glowing 🙂  As pregnancy brain would have it, mama accidentally forgot several outfit changes, but we were able to come up with a few other options in the studio that worked perfectly – a silhouette shot is exactly what this gorgeous mama wanted!  I told them this was just good practice for when baby girl arrives – things might not always go as planned with a newborn in tow…so just make it up as you go along <3 These images are SO stunning. She is easily one of the most beautiful pregnant women I have ever seen! After the studio shots we went outside to the field nearby for a few more.  Excited to share the rest with them and can’t wait to meet baby girl for newborn photos in 8 short weeks <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from their maternity shoot. Enjoy!

I was so happy to meet this sweet family last evening! It’s always a huge honor to be contacted by friends to photograph their family, and especially for a special generations shoot like this one.  I’ve known the G Family since before they had little G’s 🙂 I’m so glad that I could do this large family photo session with them! Mama G wanted to include photos with her sister and her parents with their grandkids too.  I met them up by their home and we spent the evening watching the sunset at Jetton Park, down by the lake.  Here is a preview of our time together.  Enjoy!

late spring pregnancy ~ almost family of 3 {charlotte maternity photography}

By | maternity

I can’t think of a better way to spend Mother”s Day than with this happy expecting couple for a  spring maternity session! Baby girl F is due in a few short weeks and I’m so glad that we could sneak some baby belly photos in this weekend 🙂 It’s the best feeling to meet new clients for the first time and just click. I felt like I was meeting old friends again! My maternity minis are always about having fun, getting to know my expecting parents before baby arrives and taking a few beautiful images along the way.  The weather was perfect and I just love the golden, late evening light. We were able to get some studio shots first and took a photo using the gorgeous pink satin ribbon from the couple’s wedding – so special!  Baby F  is one of my First Year clients so I’m thrilled to be taking her newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year photos!!  <3   Here are a few sneak peeks from their maternity shoot. Enjoy!

I got to meet another adorable couple tonight for a  spring maternity session! Baby boy H is due the beginning of June and I’m so glad that we could sneak some baby belly photos in this weekend 🙂 It might have been a cloudy day but these two parents-to-be were full of sunshine.

Can’t wait to meet Baby H and take his newborn photos in 5 short weeks <3 Here are a few sneak peeks from their maternity shoot. Enjoy!

By | ~, family, newborn, photography workshops

Today I have some really exciting news!! Actually, it’s a professional accomplishment, and an honor that solidifies the standards of quality I set for myself as a photographer. A board of incredible artists reviewed my portfolio and have accepted me into a talented group of women called CMPro.

CMPro is part of the Clickin Moms online community. Their website defines CMPro as “an organization of professional women photographers and highly skilled artists who are passionate about photography, who are dedicated to learning and sharing, and whose work demonstrates creativity, vision, and artistic and technical excellence”. Over the years the CM Blog has helped me to learn my craft and inspired me in many ways. Their online forum is made up of women from all around the world and is an amazing resource for all things photography.

I’m so proud to say that I’m now part of the CMPro community! Photography is such a dynamic field so I still feel like I have a lot to learn, but this is a huge accomplishment. I just had to share! 🙂

sweet family of 7! 5 sisters {charlotte family photographer}

By | 1 year old, family

I am still in awe of this sweet family of 7, with 5 sisters! They came dressed to perfection and full of smiles. A large family session can have the potential for a little chaos, but these girls and their parents were a JOY to photograph. We met on an unseasonably warm December day and all the girls were so kind, easy-going and helpful during our mini-session – their mom and dad should be proud of these young ladies! Here are the final color photos from our time together. Enjoy!
