20 day old baby boy ~ family of 4 {fort mill newborn photographer}

By | newborn

I absolutely love the family of 4 that I photographed this morning! Precious Baby C is 20 days old, which is a bit older than most of my newborn sessions, but he was SUCH a good baby! His parents also wanted to get a few photos of big brother J for his 2nd birthday so we started with those and he made my job verrry easy. The one of him below was actually the first frame that I shot! …and the sibling photo of these two brothers just *melted* me on the spot. <3 Here are a few sneak peek photos from our studio session. Enjoy!

I had a fabulous time this morning photographing a handsome 16 day old newborn baby boy! Adorable Baby H and his parents came for their photo session at my studio and it was a breeze 🙂 He was a sleepy, easy baby and his awesome mama and daddy are totally smitten with him. We did have a few piles of laundry at the end and joked that they will have some great stories to tell him someday… I’m so happy that they will also have these photos to show him, too <3 Here are a few sneak peek photos from our time together. Enjoy!

11 days new baby girl ~ family of 3 {south charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn

Brace yourself for some more baby preciousness! The most awesome thing about being a newborn photographer is being able to capture a once in a lifetime milestone for my families. Kids grow up SO fast…truly. The first few weeks of their life is so special! At only 11 days old Baby Z melted my heart <3 When I first met this sweet girl’s parents at their maternity session I knew she would be a little dream baby 🙂 They are so relaxed and easy-going – baby girl is just the same. I love her dark hair and rosy lips! Even on a rainy day we made the most of the natural light in my studio. I shared some sneak peek photos but had to post a few more favorites from out time together. Enjoy!

precious 12 days new baby boy ~family of 5 {charlotte newborn photographer}

By | newborn

I absolutely LOVED photographing this happy, chubby cheeked 12 day old newborn baby boy.  Precious Baby JC and his family came all the way from Winston-Salem for their photo session. So honored to have them here and JC was absolute perfection! It was a rainy, overcast day but we made the most of the natural light in my studio. Side confession: I really love dramatic lighting! and I love how the low light adds depth in these photos. The tiny details are my favorite <3 Capturing a family of 5 together isn’t always easy, but the B family are naturals. JC is one lucky little boy because he’s got an awesome big brother and big sister who adore him.  Not to mention his proud parents who were just beaming  🙂  I shared a few sneak peek photos already, but had to post a few more favorites of this incredible family of 5. Enjoy!

I got to meet Baby Z  today!  At only 11 days old this sweet newborn melted my heart.  I’ve been looking forward to photographing her for months and she was amazing. 🙂  I love her dark hair and rosy lips!  Her parents are so relaxed and easy-going –  the session was a breeze.

CMPro…accepted! {charlotte professional photographer}

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! 🙂

handmade natural wood CD case {charlotte family photographer}

By | ~

I think it’s the Etsy seller in me, but I absolutely LOVE gorgeous product packaging. I’ve been digging around to try and find exactly what I wanted for my photography products (for my awesome clients!)…and my search is over <;3 I just received this incredible handmade natural wood keepsake box from Poland – it is SO beautiful! The wood is super soft and it’s sturdy enough to keep those precious digital photo files on a CD safe forev-ah 🙂

These wooden keepsake boxes are reserved for a full session* digital image collection CD(s), along with a proof album, printing rights and 15% off any a la carte item.

Can’t wait to wrap this up and send it off!

proof album with digital image CD {charlotte family photographer}

By | ~

I absolutely love getting packages in the mail… especially when they have gorgeous photography products for my awesome clients <3  I received this proof album today for one of my favorite family photo sessions in Winston-Salem (they are also my featured family session) – it is SO beautiful! The photos are large enough to be a small coffee table book, the colors are bright and crisp and the pages are ridiculously soft and thick. So much so that I kept thinking I had 2 pages when I was flipping through it!

Most clients tend to order the digital image CD from their full session*, but along with that I will include this proof album – an 8×10 leather bound 35-40 page book with all the photos from your gallery. This is by no means a custom photo album, but rather a nice, high quality keepsake for you and your family to enjoy in the event that you never ever get the chance to send those CD photos to print 🙂

Can’t wait for the family to see it too!

*not available for mini-sessions; proof albums are 1 photo per page with a 30 page minimum

I shared a sneak peek of these family photos already, and here are the final images from their session in Winston-Salem! We had such a great time together and (even though he was still recovering from his first cold) sweet 5 month old Seth was such a trooper! These photos were taken on some gorgeous walking trails, the pristine Wake Forest campus and at the family’s adorable home. Enjoy!
