Are you smiling yet?

|Brand New| charlotte, nc newborn photographer

I am quite behind on the blog, and I know there are some of you waiting on sneak peeks. I'm going to be working to get caught up today so bare with me :)

Last weekend, I had my *very first* newborn session! I've always wanted to do a newborn session, but honestly, I think a lot of moms just don't think about it with all the new things going on in their lives when they have a baby. I know when my little boy was born, I didn't think about it either and I really regret it now. I would give anything to be able to have beautiful pictures of Jace when he was brand new. Babies change so fast right before our eyes and you don't really realize it until you look back at pictures. Newborns are especially beautiful to me because they define all that is innocent and pure. Everything from a little grunt to their little toes just melts my heart, and I'm pretty sure it shows, lol. So when I found out my best friend had set up a newborn session for me, I was beyond ecstatic! And I'll admit, a tiny bit nervous because I hadn't handled a baby that small since Jace was born. Soon as I seen Anna though, it all came back to me.

This family was absolutely wonderful. They have a gorgeous 3yr old daughter, Isabella, who very obviously loves her little sister. She's so smart and full of life...and I have to say it, and exact replica of her daddy! :) (I know you hear all the time, Tammy, but wow!) Mom and Dad were so welcoming to us, and it honestly felt like I've known them for a long time. We also got to meet both sets of grandparents which was a real treat. They were all so proud and sweet. All around, this family was just awesome! Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home and putting up with us for a few hours! I had a lot of fun and would do it again in a heartbeat. I can't wait to work with you again!

I almost have your gallery completely finished but in the meantime, here is a little sneak peak of just a few of my faves from the session. I hope you love them as much as I do!

A mothers touch. I loved her little eye peeping open here. She did that a lot, just keeping her eye on us :)

Hehe, I LOVE this one!

When I captured this, I was so happy!!! It's hard to capture them smiling and this was for .2 seconds. Oh man, my heart just melts.

A mother and her girls.

That sweet little smirk

I love how this hat shows just how tiny she is. This is a tiny newborn hat and it was big on her!

This is probably my fave. Mommy and Nana comforting their baby girl. They were both such a huge help to me.

May be back later with a few more :) Stay tuned!

|Just Beachy| charlotte, nc child photographer

We recently went on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC. This is my favorite season to hit the beach because I'm not a fan of crowded places or very hot weather (go figure I live in the south!). The beaches were calm, not many people or parties, and the weather was just perfect! The sand was so cool and the water was so warm...that's the way it should always be! This was only Jace's second time visiting the beach. As I suspected, he did not like the water at all. He's not very brave right now! haha! At first, he didn't like the sand either but when he realized it was oh so much fun to throw, he got over that. Boys.

Real quick- There are a lot of new things coming soon! Fall is the most wonderful season and I'm so excited to get out and about and find some new places to shoot! The Holidays are also coming up very fast, so if you are interested in booking a Holiday session, please do so soon as possible! You know how they like to sneak up on us.

What's more funny to a 2 yr old than his mommy being scared of sand being thrown at her? After this snap, I was covered in sand...sheesh

I especially love this shot because he was telling me to sit with him while he drew me pictures in the sand. He drew me a dinosaur and a heart...he said, haha!

Sandy toddler toes=ADORABLE! :) At least to mommies, hehe

Oh I just love these! Look at them back and forth, it's an action series ;)

Thanks for stopping by!! And remember...those Holiday sessions go fast!
