Lake Norman Newborn Photographer - 6 Days Old

I have been very anxiously awaiting the arrival of this sweet baby boy!   I first met his mommy and daddy just a couple months ago when we did their a maternity photo shoot in Huntersville.
The camera absolutely loved them as did I!  They were super sweet and so easy to work with.
Six day old Winston must take after his parents...  Not only is he super adorable and photogenic but he was the most perfect, sleepiest little newborn model!  Right from the start he snuggled right up and tuckered out without barely a peep.   He awoke midway through our shoot for a super sized meal and then drifted blissfully back to sleep allowing us to do some more shots.  Miss Lola their beautiful furry baby even joined in on the fun.

We decided to finish up the session with a just few images outside.  They went just as smoothly as the rest of our session.  We couldn't believe our good fortune... but then... we turned the knob to go back inside and...  The handle would not turn!!!!  We were locked out of the house!!!!  The universe most have felt the need to balance out our perfect photo shoot.  LOL  Luckily we were not out too long before a way in was found.  Whew!  Crisis averted.  Congratulations Mandy and Antione!  I am so happy for both of you and already in love with that sweet little guy of yours!  He is a lucky little man to have the two of you as his mommy and daddy!  Thank you for another amazing session and for letting my snuggle your baby boy so much!  Here are just a few favorites which were almost impossible to narrow down.  We have SOOOOO many more!  XOXO ~ Melody!!!

One Year Photo Shoot - Huntersville Baby Photographer

I loved seeing my sweet little friend Maya today for her one year portrait session!  Miss Maya is one of my Baby planner babies and I adore her!   I just love seeing babies over the course of their first year…such a fun time to document these little peoples lives and how quickly they change!  Miss maya did an amazing job as usual.  :) (Click the links to see her...  8 month session, 3 month session, and Newborn Session.)  

I have actually had the pleasure of working with Maya's family for a few years now.  I started photographing her big brother when he was just a little guy and even photographed one of his birthday parties.  "B" Family I am so glad to be your photographer.  I can not wait for our family shoot in a few months!

Here are just a few favs from today...

Lake Norman Child and Family Portrait Photographer

Last Year I surprised my family who had sent the most referrals over the years with a free family photo shoot.  I have been working with them since they were expecting their 1st child and have truly enjoyed getting to know them and make so many amazing memories with them over the years.  I am so very grateful to have them as my clients and friends and so thankful that they have shared their friends and families with me as well.  My business would not be what it is today without my amazing clients.  I am so lucky to get to work with such wonderful people and want to start the year off by saying thank you to each and everyone of you!

I would also like to throw out a 2015 challenge....  The challenge as you may have already guessed is to be the SnookyFamily who sends the most new clients to us in 2015.   If this goes as well as I hope I would love to gift a Complimentary Photo Shoot to my top referring Family EVERY year.  :)

In addition to this new challenge, my current referral program is still in play.  You will earn a $50 print credit for every new Family who books a private photo shoot with SnookySmiles Photography when they name you as their referral source.

Tell your friends, family, co-workers, and everyone you meet (LOL) why your Family is a SnookyFamily!  Share on your images (or the one below) on Facebook and Twitter and share the image below on Pinterest!  Be sure to have everyone tell me who sent them!  Thank you in advance for your support!!!!  XOXO

Speaking of mother daughter pictures....  (see my last blog post) i hopped on the other side of the lens with my two wild monkeys.  I am getting so much better at making myself do this and am so glad!  If you are still waiting to shred those few extra pounds, or to get that appt with your hair dresser... DONT!  Just do it!  Get in FRONT of the camera with your kiddos and have FUN!  I promise you will be so glad that you did!! Thanks Al for snapping these for me!  Love them and love you!

Mother Daughter Downtown Photo Shoot - Mooresville NC

I recently met up with one of my closest friends Allison and her daughter Maggie so we could do a Mother-Daughter photo shoot.  This kind of session is something that I think should be done WAY more often than it is!  I had so much fun capturing the very special bond that the two of them share with one another.  Life changes so much, so fast and being able to freeze these moments in time is absolutely priceless.  I know mothers day is a still a few months away but  THIS would be a great gift for mom!
