Cuthbertson High Senior Portraits - {Andrew downtown Waxhaw}

My travels today led me to Waxhaw, N.C. for some senior pics.  I had no idea what an incredibly fun photo shoot the day had in store for me.  Andrew, my subject for the day is 17, attends Cuthbertson High,
has traveled across the world before the age of 10, plays baseball and is a complete doll!  His hometown of Waxhaw made for an amazing backdrop and we had a perfect day!  Our session lasted for two entire hours and I only stopped because I knew how incredibly difficult it was already going to be to narrow down which images to edit.  Thanks so much S family for a fabulous morning!  Oh, and by the way ladies, yes...  he is available...  ;)

Family Photographer in Charlotte N.C. - {Noah}

I had an absolute blast yesterday running around the botanical gardens in Charlotte with my buddy Noah.  I first met Noah and his family when I was pregnant with my first child.  Noah was just two at the time and about half the size he is today.  I can not believe how quickly time flies and thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting with this sweet family.  Jen, I am so thrilled with the images we captured yesterday and can not wait to show you the rest!  In the mean time here is your sneak preview to hold you over.  ;)

Fall Portraits in the Mountains - {Austin}

Inspired by a post on North Carolina's Facebook page about the amazing fall foliage in the mountains this season I put up a note on my own page about wanting to do a photo session there.  I was beyond thrilled when a client of mine immediately responded saying that her family would be headed to Hot Springs N.C for the weekend.  Both of our husbands thought that I was a bit crazy driving three hours each way for pictures but it was SOOOOOO worth it!  I was in awe as I took my scenic drive up and up and up... to meet the W family.  Not only were we surrounded by a simply breathtaking backdrop all around us but I had an amazing time hanging out with them.  Austin is hysterical and absolutely adorable.  The camera adores him!  It was so much fun to get to see him again!  He has grown so much since the last time I saw him!  Jim and Renee, I am so happy that today fell into place for us so perfectly!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Mooresville N.C, Child Photographer - {Sweet Morgan}

Last but certainly not least of my mini sessions was this beautiful little princess!  Morgan,  is another one of my little ones that I first met when she was still in mommy's belly at their maternity session.  I can not believe how quickly all these teeny tiny babies are growing up!  I was so excited to see the A family again.  They are so sweet and so fun to work with!  Julie, I am so thrilled that you were able to join me Monday!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!  :)

Lake Norman Family Photographer - {A trio of snugglers}

Meet my three sweet little buddies, Lilly, Sam and Ben.  Not only are they SUPER adorable and oh so sweet but they were PERFECT listeners for their session!  I was beyond impressed and had so much fun playing with them in the gardens.  My absolute favorite part of our session though was the hugs!  I love hugs!  W family, you guys totally rocked this photo session! I already can not wait until next time! 
PS.  Lilly those boots are FAB!  Mwah!

Birth Photography - Lake Norman N.C. {Birth Photographer}

Lets Talk about Birth Photography!
Ah!  Birth Sessions are so amazing!  I am so looking forward to getting to do another!
Birth  Photography is all about capturing that magical moment (as well as  those leading up to it and after) when your little one enters the world. It shows  the range of emotions that a couple goes through together on that very  important day as well as the love and connection that they have with  each other.
Having  a professional photographer present during your labor and delivery  allows both mommy and daddy to just be in the moment and focus on the experience without having to  worry about missing an important memory or moment to document.
Being chosen to capture such an intense and amazing moment in a family’s  life is not one to be taken lightly. It is an absolute honor and  privilege and an experience that I hope to do again and again!
