Childrens Photographer - Charlotte NC

I got to see my little buddy Preston this weekend.  He was one of my sweet baby planner babies and I can not believe how much he has changed since his 1 year photo shoot just 6 months ago!  I am loving the beautiful blonde curls!  The heart melting smile is the same though!  I love this little guy and his awesome mommies too!  I am so glad they decided to do an 18 month session to capture how quickly this fella is changing!  I am already looking forward to next time!  Here are just a few favs.  As usual I have LOTS more that I am so excited to show you!

Advice for Parents and GrandParents

I posted this back in 2013 and feel so strongly that it needs to be repeated....


You will only regret the times that you did not.
Your little ones do not care if your having a good hair day or if your nails are perfectly manicured.
They do not care if you have reached your target weight or if you have wrinkles.
I guarantee that you will be so glad that you did and so will your children and grandchildren!

and one of my favorite pictures….  Me and my own mother….

Hysterical Themed Promotional Photo Shoot for 4 Pies Productions

You know that pain you get in your cheeks when you have been smiling and laughing for way too long?  I have that going on right now!  I have bee working on some of the group images of the Ladies of 4 Pies Productions from our Decades themed promo shoot this past Saturday for most of my day today and I am dying!  I need a new word for Fun because Fun is just not a strong enough word to describe what our day was like together.  I know this is my job but it definetley does not feel like work when I spend time with these ladies.  I adore them so much and am at this moment trying to think up what we need to photograph next so we can do it again ASAP!  I am so excited to be involved in what they are doing.  This is going to be am amazing.  Here is another peek into the world of 4PP...  Enjoy!

Tiffany Taylor - Amazing Hairdresser in Lake Norman

Tiffany is Vanessa and I's hairdresser but this weekend was her 1st time collaborating and meeting the rest of the Ladies of 4 Pies Production and affiliates.  To say that she fits in with this crazy crew is a bit of an understatement.  Not only does she know her craft inside and out but she blew us away with some Wardrobe magic..  Most notably transforming a very modest full bodiced dress into a beautiful halter top dress to perfectly match our 1950's I love Lucy-esk vision.  I still don't know how she managed that.  I hope she had fun because she has made herself invaluable!

Tiffany Taylor is a Concord, North Carolina native with 13 years experience in the hair industry. She's a licensed Cosmetologist, expert colorist, and master precision cutter. She also has certificates in hair extensions and color correction, and has even taught several classes on cutting skills. Tiffany's skill and creativity is matched by few in the industry. After an education in art and graphic design, Tiffany found that she most enjoyed using people’s hair as her canvas. Tiffany prides herself in developing hair styles based on clients’ facial shapes, features, and texture. She has spent the better part of her life playing with hair. Her passion for the hair industry shows in every thing she does. Her clients book months in advance just to make sure they can get in with her. Tiffany spends most of time balancing my roles of mom, wife, and career woman. She has a passion to be creative through her career as a stylist, as well as being a great mother and wife. Tiffany doesn't want to have to choose one role. She does it all!!

You can reach her via Facebook here but don't wait.  
Her calendar fills up months and months in advance!
