Victoria 95.1 Slideshow of our entire day - Charlotte Child and Family Photographer

I am still smiling about yesterday. The entire day was just beyond words! They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I snapped over one thousand pictures yesterday. I guess that would equal quite a few words eh? There are SO many images that I would like to share but it would take forever to edit them all so I decided that the best way to share the entire day with you would be to force my self not to edit them all (gasp! Those of you who know me well understand how incredibly difficult that is for me. LOL) and to share them in a fun 4 minute long way. I am pretty happy with how this turned out and I think it sums up the 12 hours rather well. I hope you enjoy it as well and would LOVE to hear your responses. Thanks so much for watching! XOXO from me, Cyndi, Craig and Victoria!

Victoria 95.1 -> 12 hours condensed into 4 minutes. :)

Live here at Victoria 95.1!

Posting an inside look from behind the scenes here live at Victoria 95.1.  I am just overwhelmed by the staff here who have completely gone above and beyond all our expectations to make our little princess Victoria feel like the star that she is.  Walking in we were directed to a red carpet to Victoria's very own dressing room complete with a lit mirror fit for the divaest of divas, oreos and other favorite snacks of Vic.  This little girl is roaming the halls and having an absolute blast.  Everyonehere wants to meet her and she is even giving out autographed pics.....  Which I am still waiting for Vic! 
Just about an hour ago hair and make up (Honey's) arrived to doll her up and add some beautiful curls.  Victoria LOVED the hair chalk and decorated all of us with our very own pink and purple highlights.  Bon Bon's Baked Goods brough some yummy cupcakes... a HUGE hit with Victoria.  Here are a few pics from earlier.  There are LOTS more to come!!!!!

Mooresville Baby Photographer - Splish Splash Mini

There are many things that I love about what I do but I have to say one of the best things about my job is getting to work with the same families and getting to watch as they grow.  I love that they have entrusted me to be the one to capture and document these oh so special moments for them.  This family is one of my very special "SnookyFamilies"  I first met Erica, Josh and sweet Baby Gage 9 months ago.   His mommy had won a SnookySmiles Photography Gift Certificate at the 17th Annual Baby Fair in Statesville and we had our first session (his 9 month pics)  together at Sloan Park.  At his one years session we headed to the NC Transportation museum for a train themed portrait session (I just LOVE getting to do theme sessions!!!)  with a smash cake finale and had an absolute blast!  Last night we met for his 18 month session.  I could not wait to get to see my little buddy and fell in love with him once again!  He was more in the mood to play around in the water than to pose for pictures which was just fine with me!  I have found that just letting our little ones have fun and be themselves will give us the BEST pics!  Gage once again you rocked your session!!!!  I can not wait until our next one!  I am already brainstorming some fun ideas!!! 


Blog changes in progress...

Please excuse the way the blogging is looking!  I am making some changes and trying to perfect my HTML skills!

Pet Photography - Lake Norman NC

My girls were at abuela's house the other day so Petie the wonder dog became my model.  LOL.           Pet Photography is not usually my specialty but I thought these were too cute not to share.

Victoria 95.1 - Charlotte N.C. Child Photographer

I first meet sweet Victoria when she was 5 months old and her mommy brought her into the portrait studio I was working in at the time for her very first pictures.  She did not have a chance to do her Newborn Portrait session sooner than this because they were too busy fighting for her life.  Victoria was born 5 weeks premature and spent the first  eighteen days of her life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Levine's Children's Hospital. Victoria came home only to be diagnosed six days later with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. When Victoria was 7 months old. She was diagnosed with a heart condition and would need a transplant. At the age of 3 Victoria underwent successful heart surgery. The results have been astounding!  Our sweet Victoria is thriving and a true inspiration to so many!  If this story sounds familiar you may remember our fundraiser for our Victoria two months after her surgery.. You can view these posts here and here.

Cyndi and I are planning her 6 year session very soon but in the mean time I thought it would be fun to share the pics from her last session  (A Valentines Day themed from last year.)  To celebrate the fact that CBS Radio station WNKS KISS 95.1 will become "Victoria 95.1FM" all day on March 28, 2012, in her honor.  Cyndi has asked me to join them and I am so excited!  I can not wait!  To read more about this check out Levine's Children hospital or kiss 95.1
