Huntersville Birth Photographer - Carrington's First Breath

Yesterday was an amazing day!  I was able to witness the birth of an absolutely beautiful baby girl!  I have known the D Family for a very long time now.  Our 1st session together was their maternity session when they were eagerly expecting their 1st child, Trey.  It was such a thrill to do their second maternity session just a  few weeks ago with Mr. Trey now a big boy getting to participate.  He was even with us in the delivery room with as his brand new baby sister entered the world.  Below are just a few images from this unbelievable day!  Thank you once again Doug and Laurie for including me in this very special moment!

Concord Baby Photographer - {New Edition}

I was so excited to get to spend time with this wonderful family again and to finally meet their newest edition, Sweet Baby Luke.    We had to delay his newborn session until now as Luke was in the NICU for his first 6 weeks of life.  He was diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder called Trisomy 8 Mosaic and at 7 days old Luke had kidney surgery.  His mommy and daddy and big bother are just thrilled to finally have him home with them where they can hug and love him every day.
My favorite moments at his session were seeing how his eyes completely lit up at the sound of his big brother Max's voice, and seeing  how he would lovingly stare into his mommy's eyes.  This sweet little man quickly captured my heart just as he has captured the hearts of all that have met him!  I can not wait to get to see Luke and Max again!

What an awesome day today was!  I had not one, but two amazing sessions with two wonderful families.  My second session of the day was with the D family who just welcomed their second baby girl into their family just 3 weeks ago.  I had so much getting to know the four of them and could not believe how easy they made my job!  Ruby,  I can't wait to see you and your beautiful girls again! Thank you so much for letting my capture these memories for you!

Lake Norman Maternity and Newborn Photographer - {De'ja vu}

In February of 2009 the D Family consisted of just 2 people.  We had an wonderful maternity photo shoot as they anxiously awaited the birth of their first born child.  I little boy that they would name Trey.  Since then I have been able to watch their sweet little man grow from a teeny tiny newborn to an adorable fun loving little man.  Just the other day we headed back to the same location, now a family of 3 as they document their anticipation and excitement for the upcoming arrival of a baby girl.  It is truly my pleasure to have gotten to know this family so well.  I can not wait to meet and get to know the newest member of the family!  Laurie, I am anxiously awaiting your phone call and can not wait to get to photograph Carrington's birth!  :)

Here is a little flashback to our first maternity shoot...

... and here is your sneak peak from this recent session!  Enjoy my friend!  :)

Lake Norman Family Photographer - {A Walk in the Garden}

I had an amazing time the other day with another one of my favorite families!  I started doing pictures of Miss Karina a long long time ago, before she was even a big sister.  We had so much fun!  This was mainly Mr Quinn's 1 year portrait session but my little buddy Karina could not help hamming it up for me (which I love.)  Did I mention how adorable this family is?  Oh wait, I don't have to..  just see for yourself!  ;)
