Charlotte Child Photographer - {Extending the 2011 Spring Mini Sessions to Sunday too!}

Wow!  The Mini Spring Sessions sure went fast!  There is just one spot left! I am so excited!  
Due to the fantastic response I have decided to do the minis on Sunday as well! 

For those who missed the original post, here it is....

Mother nature is starting to give us (those of here in NC anyhow) a little taste of spring and I know that my family and I are so excited!  The girl's and I were just playing outside a few minutes ago enjoying the Sunshine. Ellie rode her little tricycle and Samsam rode on the back.  It was so cute,I was just kicking myself for not bringing along the camera!  This of course got me thinking about.... SPRING MINI SESSIONS!

I will be doing half hour mini sessions on Saturday April 9th at the UNCC Botanical Gardens in Charlotte.  This is one of my absolutely favorite locations to do portrait session as it is just BEAUTIFUL there, especially in the Spring with all the flowers in bloom!

{Memorable Moments} Lake Norman Child Portrait Artist

Inspired by Rita, one of my favorite photography bloggers I have decided to implement a weekly post of a personal image that is special to me.  One that just makes me smile and brightens my day! Fellow Photogs (Pro or hobbiest, it doesnt matter!) if you end up doing the same I would love to see your photo linked in my comments!  :)

My very 1st image is of course of one of my sweet angel babies!  This is sweet Sam "driving" the van the other day. She was so happy I could not resist snapping a few images of my little princess!  Please don't mind the paci.  That is just her so in this case I didn't mind it being in the picture.

I just finished editing the rest of Megan's images and could not resist posting just a few more sneak peaks of her perfect little angel!  Enjoy Meg!  :)

Huntersville Family Photographer - {Love}

I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful family for the 1st time yesterday and had so much fun getting to know them.  Alyssa and Jason were two of the sweetest people I have ever met and as you can see their sweet baby girl made THE cutest subject!  I am so excited that they have signed up for my "1st Year Plan" so I will get to see this baby grow and get to capture many more memories for them!  Thank you Alyssa and Jason!  I can not wait to show you the rest of your images!  There are lots more where these came from!!

Huntersville Child and Family Portraits {My Wild Boys!}

Yesterday was so much fun!  In contrast to the sleepy newborn girl that started my morning were my two wild little buddies John and Miles who gave me my workout for the day.  Sweet Miles was not feeling his normal self but still could not manage to take  bad picture.  Who can not look at those big blue eyes and not just melt? Big Brother John had me cracking up the whole time with his silliness.  The very best smiles for him were prompted by talking about his girlfriend (my daughter Ellie)  The mere mention of her name instantly results in the cutest ear to ear grin.  He even picked a flower and asked me to give it to her.  He is such a sweetheart!  Thank you Jen for such a fun shoot!  I can not wait to show you al of the pics but in the mean time here is just a little sneak peak to hold you over...

Mooresville Newborn Photographer - Davidson Portraits

Today was such a wonderful day!  I had not one but TWO Fantastic shoots!  The 1st was with the sweet angel who I absolutely could not wait to meet!  Her Mommy Megan and I first met two years ago when she was expecting her first child and I have had the pleasure of photographing her absolutely BEAUTIFUL family ever since.  This sweet princess was an absolute dream to work with!  She slept through her entire shoot and did not make a peep!  The icing on the cake was seeing how sweet and loving her big brother Brendan was with her.  He did so well holding his tiny baby sister!  Each time I return to the C household I can not image how we can possibly top our previous session...  I think we did it...  ;)

Pure Love Give Away! - Help Save Peter!

As some of you know I am a volunteer Photographer for Inspiration through Art (formerly known as The littlest Hero Project)  which pairs children with disabilities with local Photographers.  I have been blessed to have had the privilege of meeting three very special little people through this program, Arden, Kylee & Colin. These sweet sweet babies had my heart the instant that I met them and it was such a joy for me to get to work with them!

These babies were born into wonderful loving homes to wonderful parents who love them with all their hearts but sadly there are many children with Down Syndrome who have not been so lucky.  In Eastern Europe babies born with Down Syndrome are deemed unacceptable at Birth and discarded into overcrowded understaffed orphanages. 

Today I learned about an amazing woman named Patti who is determined to help these children.
Please see her Blog to see how you can help AND win something in the process!

Davidson Baby Photographer - {Sweet Baby Carrington}

This sweet family will forever be so special to me!  Not only have they been my clients, neighbors, and eventually close friends since their 1st pregnancy but they allowed me to be a part of one of THE most important days of thier lives...  the birth of their beautiful baby girl! Shortly after I returned to their home to capture Carrington's Newborn Images.  I can not believe that it has already been three months and could not wait to return again for her 3 month portraits.  Although she had been awake longer than usually this sweet baby girl worked the camera once again and apparently does not know how to take a bad picture.  LOL
Laurie I am so happy to have met and gotten to know you and your wonderful family!  I love you guys and am so thrilled to be the one to continue to capture all the memories to come!  Mwah!!!
