Davidson Photographer - 2015 Down Syndrome Awareness Calendar Photo Shoot 1

In 2012 we gathered some of the cutest kiddos on the planet to create a 2013 Down Syndrome Awareness Calendar.  The purpose of the project was to raise funds for the Charlotte Down Syndrome Awareness organization.  The calendars were a huge success!  We had so much fun we decided this needed to be an annual event!  Sadly the following year snuck by us.  We were determined not to miss out again.  Yesterday was the 1st of two photo shoots to create our 2015 Calendar.  One again our calendar proceeds wit benefit the Charlotte  Down Syndrome Awareness organization.   It was so wonderful to see some very familiar little faces and to get to meet two very adorable new additions to our calendar.  All the kiddos did an absolutely wonderful job as did all of our mommies and daddies!  Thank you all for coming out yesterday!  I can not wait to see the rest of my little friends on June 8th for Session 2!!

Here are a few Now and Then's of our cast from session 1:

Baby Photographer in Davidson N.C. - Sweet Three Month old Princess

One of my SnookyFamiles had a very special Christmas Gift this year,  an absolutely beautiful baby girl.    You can see her amazing newborn session here.   This past weekend we had the first of her four Baby Planner Sessions, her 3 month portraits.  My sweet little friend was not completely in the mode for her photo shoot but lucky for me she does not know how to take a bad picture even if she tried.  It was so great to see how much she has grown and to also see Proud Big Brother Van who is always so much fun!  Thank you B family for being a SnookyFamily.  I am thrilled to be your photographer!  :)

Family Photographer in Davidson N.C. - Photo shoot in the Snow and SO much cuteness!

My neighbor and friend Angie has the most adorable children.  I see them every week at Tae-kwon-do and have been patiently waiting to get to do their portraits for them.  Today was the day and I was just so excited.  We even got to do them in the snow, which if you have seen my recent posts is SO much fun to me.  Despite the slippery slush all of my perfect little subject did an absolutely amazing job and I am beyond thrilled.  Here are just a few of my very favorites..  I have SO many more!  I hope you love them as much as I do Chris and Anj!!!  :)

Two Huskies, a sled and a boy - Winter Lifestyle Photography in Davidson

I have know "the Dude" a.k.a Keaton for years now.  I have been visualizing one of the images below for almost as long.  Today the stars finally aligned giving me the snow, the sled and my three awesome subjects!  what fun!  Have I mentioned hoe much I love snow portraits?  LOL.

Snow in N.C. - Lifestyle Outdoor Photographer

Winter is typically a quiet time of year for photographers.  Most people do not want to venture out into the cold for portraits but oh how I wish that were not the case.. especially when there is snow!  I LOVE shooting in the snow!  I actually even just purchased a protective hood online for my camera so that I can shoot while it is snowing soon!  I can not wait until it arrives!

Today, I had some willing and super fun subjects who were not deterred by the cold.  Meet Hayden.  We got some shots of him zooming down a mini mountain of snow and even explored a hidden spot in the neighborhood that turned out to provide a very cool background!   Hayden, you are going to be quite the heartbreaker some day.  Thanks for putting up with me today!  I am just thrilled with how your pics turned out!!!  and thanks Karyn!  I had so much fun hanging out with you outside of class!  :)
Here are a few of my favorites!  I will let you know ASAP when I finish the rest!

Lifestyle Photographer - Fun in the Snow

Almost exactly a year ago I posted this post about lifestyle photography and how great it is to do "a day in the life" style sessions capturing your family just being in the moment and enjoying themselves.  This time last year we were outside without jackets riding bikes in the cup-de-sac and enjoying the sunshine.  Today we were bundled up with as many layers as we could find as we swooshed down the hill in our back yard on our new sled.  I just love having these moments to look back on. These images will surly make the cut for our bi-annual family photo album!  :)

Contact me ASAP before the snow melts if you would like your own lifestyle session in the snow!
