By | family, petite

Happy holidays y’all! I am so happy to finally share these family photos!! You will definitely remember my fabulous assistant Tiffany from the fun tea party session we did earlier this year with her girls. 🙂 We met again for a petite session to do their holiday photos and have been keeping them a secret until she got her gorgeous cards out. Ohmigoodness I’m glad they are delivered! Ha.I offer these holiday sessions exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals. We meet for a quick 15 minutes, I grab half a gallery of shots, simple easy and great with young kids (who have a tiny attention span)! <3 Here are a few favorite photos and their fabulous holiday card design. Enjoy!

I’m excited to share this sweet family of 4 from my rush of holiday petite sessions! I did their maternity and a special in-home newborn session for their second baby girl. We always have so much fun and mama dresses the girls in the most adorable clothes!! I love watching my newborns grow up. Petite holiday sessions are offered exclusively to my existing clients and their direct friend referrals. We meet for a quick 15 minutes, I grab 10 shots, simple easy and great with toddlers (who have a tiny attention span)! 🙂 Since these are going on their custom holiday cards we create, I can’t often share them on here. But some families give me the ok and I’m excited to post their gorgeous photos!

18 month old little sister ~ tea party {ballantyne baby photographer}

By | family, petite

It was so good to see this family again! Hard to believe I did their oldest daughter’s newborn session and now they have baby girl #2, a little sister who is 18 months.  Last time I saw them was for her 6 month sitter session. Time flew by and even though we missed the exact one year mark I’m happy they have this sweet milestone! At this age children are so busy busy busy and running everywhere. We played in the gardens and the girls were so cute when I tried to tickle them. Mama also brought a precious tea party set that we used for the girls to play with. Watching them interact was adorable! Little sis followed her big sister’s lead and they had lots of tea 😉  I’m excited to post their gorgeous photos! <3 Here are a few sneaks from our time together. Enjoy!

tea party + bubbles ~ the durst family {charlotte family photographer}

By | family

Yaaaay! I am so excited to share these family photos!! You will definitely remember my fabulous assistant Tiffany from the butterfly and balloon session last year with her girls. 🙂 Well we have been planning another special shoot again – this time it was for tea and bubbles (and also to include Daddy Durst) <3 We met at the studio so the girls could get their hair and makeup done.  It was like magic watching the little girls faces while we were getting ready ~ between their hair, the dresses and excitement of things to come…they were absolutely giddy. We made our way to the gardens and the weather and lighting was perrrrfect. This is the 2nd time we have had to reschedule because of Mother nature and it was worth the wait! We did some family photos first and then set up the tea set. The girls had a ball and it melted our heart to see their daddy jump in there for tea too <3 After tea we started the bubbles and the girls got to let loose. They loved their dresses sooooo much and couldn’t help but to swish and spin in them! They are new additions to my ever-growing studio collection of dresses too. 😀 I also got to play with doing some video clips again last night! If you can’t feel the joy from the photos, you can certainly see it in the video <3 Here are a few favorite photos and the video clip from our time together. Enjoy!

the durst girls ~ sisters, butterflies+balloons {charlotte family photographer}

By | family

EEEk!! I am sooooooo excited to share this session! I have known this family for basically forever. Daddy Durst (not pictured, but earned himself a role as an awesome shoot assistant) is from Durham and we have known each other since elementary school. Mama Durst, Tiffany (with her lovely girls in several photos below), was a co-worker and good friend of mine at AT&T. She is beautiful inside and out! I am beyond thrilled that I get to work with her again <3 She is my new product specialist and will be meeting our clients in person, helping them choose photos from their gallery and order timeless artwork. Many clients have asked for this service so I feel very fortunate to have her join me! Tiffany and I have been working on a lot of exciting product changes behind the scenes lately, but we have also been planning this amazing session with her two precious daughters. 🙂

We started in the studio with her girls on my new favorite backdrop. The girls were too sweet and I adore the soft tones and florals. Then we went up to the gardens where we recreated a very special event for Tiffany’s family. Each year they do a butterfly release in memory and honor of her grandmother. Butterflies remind them of her beautiful spirit and this is what I was hoping to capture. Now they can relive this special time forever. <3 We also wanted to let the girls have a little fun with balloons and the lake! They were both so anxious to let the balloons go into the air and wanted to play in the lake too. We gave them the best of both – the look of joy on their faces when they let the strings go is *priceless*!! These images have left a permanent smile on my face. 🙂 Here are a few favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

baby sister F ~ sweet girl 9 days new {newborn photographer ballantyne}

By | newborn

Last week I welcomed one of my favorite clients back to my studio for little sister’s newborn photos. Baby F’s family came to me for newborn photos of their first daughter M and I was so happy to watch her grow up over her first year too. When mom and dad told me that they were expecting again just a few weeks after my own due date I just had to work them in (knowing that a newborn session would be the most feasible type of shoot during my 6 week recovery time frame). Everything worked out perfectly! We were even able to meet for some maternity photos too. Baby F #2 was born on St. Patricks Day so we added a pop of green with a gorgeous wrap in a floor set up. I love the soft pink and purples that her mom picked out as well. Big sister M and her little sis are 22 months apart and lets just say that the stars aligned for us at the shoot…I absolutely adore the sibling shot of the two girls together <3 Congrats F family! Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!

11 days new! special delivery baby girl ~ now family of 5 {piper glen newborn photographer}

By | newborn

If you follow my work you might remember the very special maternity session I posted last month for a soon to be family of 5! Baby G made her appearance early and she is every bit as perfect as I could have imagined. Her eyelashes are INSANE!! and I love all her fluffy dark hair, so SWEET. Her parents are over the moon in love with this little girl and so are her new siblings! She has a big sister (3 years old) and a big brother (5 months old), both are adopted. Adoption has a special place in my heart and I just adore this family! Baby G even gave me a few tiny smiles so I think she was happy to have me take her newborn photos. 😉 Here are a some sneak peeks from our time together.  Enjoy!

the littlest sister at 11 days young ~ new family of 6 {charlotte newborn photos}

By | newborn

It was a huge honor to meet this new family of 6 who just welcomed the littlest sister to their home only 11 days ago! Baby E’s mama is another local photographer in Charlotte, so I was thrilled for her to contact me about doing her little girl’s newborn photos. Lindsay brought E to my studio first and we did her individual photos first. Once the rest of the family arrived we got the sweetest sister shot evvver! Baby E’s big sister ADORES her. She was so happy to cuddle and give her little sis hugs and kisses. We caught the last bit of daylight for a few family photos outside near some gorgeous trees in bloom. Of course Lindsay had the most AH-mazing wardrobe picked out – it’s so awesome to meet and work with another photographer here in town <3   Here are a some sneak peeks from our time together.  Enjoy!

sisters! pretty in pink – at the ranch {charlotte baby photographer}

By | family

I absolutely LOVED photographing these sweet sisters! Their mom did an amazing job with wardrobe – precious pinks, plaids and casual jeans with boots….perfection! The location was at the family’s ranch in York, SC and I absolutely love the rustic feel of these photos. Little sis Norah is 8 months old and full of smiles 🙂 Big sis Mikaela is so sweet and shy, she reminded me of my oldest too! Here are the final images from their mini-session.  Enjoy!
