Down Syndrome Fundraising Calendar session two - Year 3!

I can not believe this will be our third year creating our annual Down Syndrome Fundraising Calendar (which we need a cool name for BTW)

Last weekend was our second of three sessions for the 2016 Calendar.
I loved seeing my sweet little friends who totally rocked their session!
Great job my super terrific models!!!

I also could not help to snap a couple images of a sweet big sister who was there to support her sibling.  She was so sweet and such a big helper!
Speaking of helpers, I would like to thank my new friend Emma for join us and helping out Sunday morning.  Emma has a passion for photography and for working with children will special needs.  I absolutely loved meeting her and am so happy she could join us!

Here is just a tiny peek into our morning!
Be sure to pre order your calendar!  You can do so HERE.

Cornelius Newborn Photographer - Lake Norman Maternity and Newborn Portraits

I have really been looking forward to today!  Today I got to head to The S Family's house to meet their brand new one week old baby girl, Elizabeth.  The moment mom opened the door  a very excited Big Sister Makayla dashed out in a blur exclaiming happily  "I have my baby now"  Makayla and I are good buddies.  She is one of my stunning models from DancinKids who of course totally rocked her Dance pics this and last year.  We got to really become best pals at our maternity session last month in the gardens.  It's not always easy making room for a new person in your life and sharing the spotlight but I am super proud of this sweet girl.  I am so happy to have met this sweet family and have really enjoyed getting to know and work with them.  Our newborn session this morning was truly amazing and I am so excited to watch these sweet sisters grow together!  Thank you S Family!  I can not wait to show you the rest of these!!!!!!

Davidson Family Photos - lake Norman NC

Met up with this adorable Family of five recently for a super fun Family Photo shoot in Davidson.   Their oldest daughter Gracie was actually in a playgroup with my Ellie through Lake Norman Mommies when they were just babies.  I can not believe how long ago that was!!!  Big sisters Gracie and Emma were willing models from the start.  Tiny miss Molly was a bit timid at first but quickly warmed up and decided she wanted to model too, just like her big sissies.  The highlight of the evening for me was a giant hug from Molly as we said goodbye.  I am so excited to share this sneak peek with you O Family!  Just wait until you see the rest!  :)

Davidson Family Portraits - Sisters

This is family is VERY near and dear to my heart.  We 1st met a few years ago at one of our first Down Syndrome Celebrity fundraiser Calendar Sessions.  Since then they have become regular clients.. much more importantly they have become very close friends and I am so happy that we are now apart of each other's lives.    This morning, as expected was wonderful!  I love these sweet girls so much!!

Lake Norman Maternity Shoot - Babies and Bellies

This pretty lady may look familiar.  If you scroll down to the post just below this one you will see her featured with Nora and Camille, the two little girls that she nannies.  Seeing how wonderful she is with them you can see what an amazing mommy she is going to be to her own little girl.  Her husband is a total sweetheart also and little Camille and Nora are just crazy about him!  They make my heart happy and I am so very excited to meet their princess once she arrives.  She is a lucky little girl indeed to be joining this sweet family.
