Besides weddings, I love photographing all the wonderful parts of life that come after the wedding day.  When my brides and grooms and my friends add to their family, I’m so honored when they ask me to photograph another special moment in their lives.

When my best friend had her sweet little baby girl, I was so excited to head over to the hospital and capture a few images of her big brother meeting his little sister for the first time.  He was so proud and excited!

Charlotte NC child photographer (Pumpkin Patch)

  I probably should have posted these a while back…but you know how it goes… The cobbler’s kids have no shoes, the doctor’s kids are always sick-and the photographer’s kid has no photos.  I am making a concerted effort to be sure I get Jackson in front of the camera more (early New Year’s Resolution)! 

This is from the day Jackson and his best friends went to the pumpkin patch.  We were a bit late in the month, so it was slim pickings in the field, but Jackson went and found his own little pumpkin anyway.  The kids loved the ride around the farm on the big tractor, and the huge pumpkins!

And, then there is the newest little baby member of their kiddo playdate group…we’re waiting on him to get a little bigger so he can play too!

I love these children! I can’t wait to do a REAL portrait session for each of them…but I do love capturing these little moments of them having fun! :)

Fields of Dream – {Waxhaw, NC family photography}

  I was recently able to work with a very special project by fellow photographer Julie Phillips Staley {In His Image Photography} called ‘Fields of Dreams’.  This event takes place in a gorgeous sunflower field in Waxhaw, NC, and is an exclusive event for children and their families affected by pediatric cancer.   It was an extremely humbling experience…the little irritations and nuisances that annoy on a normal day seem so tiny, petty, and insignificant when you see these small children putting up a brave fight against such a nasty disease.  There was no one there unaffected by these children-some smiling and happy to be out playing in the sunshine and flowers instead of sitting in a hospital room, some that seemed almost permanently sad and quiet from a lifetime of doctors and hospitals.  Bless these children and their families. <3

I loved working with the L family for portraits of their gorgeous, sweet little daughters!  With children, I love to let them run and play and capture them as they are…These are the moments you’ll treasure forever.

So, for their session, I loaded up all the fun kid stuff that little girls love to play with: bubbles, balloons, heart shaped confetti… and we ran, and played, climbed on the swingset and just had a great time-I had two sweet new (and very tired) friends by the end of our session.

Jackson’s Winnie the Pooh birthday party

This past week was a huge milestone in our family–Jackson turned one on Wednesday, April 18!  We waited until Sunday to have his birthday party, and he really enjoyed himself.  I had wanted to have it outdoors in the backyard we’ve been working so hard on, but the weather didn’t cooperate. Jackson had a great time anyway, and that’s what really mattered.

My husband loved Winnie the Pooh as a child, so we chose to do a Winnie the Pooh first birthday party.  He had tons of the plush characters, so I used those for the decorations, and his gorgeous (and yummy!) cakes came from Got What it Cakes.

Winnie the Pooh themed birthday partyThis little canvas is something I picked up for Jackson’s baptism, but I think I may keep it up for a lot of his parties in the future.   I love what it says…all those things are so very simple, but they are things a lot of us (myself included) forget to do sometimes.

Aren’t those cakes wonderful?!

I know it’s not Winnie the Pooh themed, but I got this book to use as a message book for all of Jackson’s birthdays until he gets it as an adult–full of years and years worth of notes, advice, and well wishes from everyone important in his life.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has long been one of my favorite holidays.  Costumes and candy! Yes, please!

This is by far my favorite Halloween EVER… even though we’re not throwing our big annual Halloween bash; something much more special is happening—it’s one of many, many FIRSTS we get to experience with our sweet baby boy Jackson.  I’m so excited for him to get to see all the trick or treaters come to our door!  We took him to the ‘Bootanical’ event at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden yesterday-he was soooo cute in his little Tigger costume!

Here’s a couple of the snapshots…
