Charlotte engagement portrait session {Angie and Chris}

Angie and Chris had an elegant, rainy day wedding at Ritz Carlton, uptown Charlotte, NC.  A few weeks before, we got together for a quick engagement session near their home in Fourth Ward.

I love how engagement portrait sessions let you get to know a little bit more about a couple and how they behave in front of the camera-Chris was a tiny bit camera shy at first, but he was a pro by the wedding day. ;)

There’s going to be a baby!

I’ve been pretty much MIA on the blog here lately…. not only is it the crazy part of the wedding year (lots of emails, traveling, late nights and editing)…. AND we are expecting a sibling for Jackson the end of November/beginning of December! 

Unfortunately, I’ve been more than a little sick-I had hyperemesis gravidarum (extremely severe morning sickness) with Jackson, and though I was hoping to skip it this time, no such luck.  With a little help from my best friends Zofran and Phenergan (strong anti-nausea meds), I’m getting a little food in me now and spending a lot less time hugging the porcelain throne…. but it was pretty rough there for a few weeks. (try the past 12 or so!)

What does this mean for my clients?  For those of you already scheduled and on the books, nothing–your regularly scheduled time with me stands just as is.  My doctor tells me the end of my sick days is just around the corner (a few weeks) and I have no complications, so everything is peachy!

If you’re not on my schedule so far…it means act fast.   I will be taking on only a very few clients for weddings and portraits in order to spend as much time with my newborn and sweet little 2 year old Jackson before he grows up and starts going to preschool next year!

We find out Friday if this little one will be a boy or a girl…

Best friends { Charlotte child and and family photographer }

  I am so lucky…for so many reasons.    I have the most wonderful son I could ever possibly dream of.  Luckily, I have two wonderful friends who were pregnant the same time I was; and so Jackson has two fantastic best friends who were born within weeks of him.  His friend Jace came by the other day and we took some photos…. Love them! <3

Best of 2012 yearly wrap up

Am I the only one in total disbelief that 2012 is ending?  This year has flown by. 

Looking back, I didn’t fully stick to the resolutions I made at the beginning of the year.  Though I did get out of my maternity jeans finally, I still haven’t lost the baby weight..something to continue to work on in 2013.  Most nights, I managed to turn off the computer and really be present with my family.  I did take on a much lighter schedule in 2012, which really helped.  2013 is going to be amazing, though, with new procedures, workflow management software, and lots of other new and exciting events, partnerships and general goodness!

I feel so privileged and humbled to be entrusted with the moments I have been able to photograph for so many people in love this year and those past.  I’m looking forward an an even more wonderful year to come!

Charlotte wedding photographer { Rock the Dress photos in Vancouver Island, BC }

There were just too many photos I wanted to share from Jacob and Laura’s Rock the dress photo session in gorgeous Victoria {Vancouver Island, BC}.  It was a chilly, very windy day, but they took it in stride and were fantastic to photograph.  Big thanks to Barb from French Kiss Events for setting this up! :) 

{What is Rock the Dress? you may ask… Rock the Dress is an alternative to Trash the Dress.  You spend so much time and money looking for the perfect dress for your wedding day; it just seems like such a shame to ruin it!  So, Rock the Dress instead–you and your hubby can go to locations you couldn’t on your wedding day, or style a shoot according to a theme.  Either way, you get some fun, sweet, gorgeous images of you and your new husband, get another wear out of your amazing wedding dress, and you don’t trash your wedding gown in the process.}
