Black and white photo collage for a dear friend

Wooden door in Germany

This gallery contains 11 photos.

A dear friend of mine that I miss terribly inspired me to put this collage together. Many entryways, doors, windows and paths from our travels through Europe. I’m hoping to add more images to this as I find lost photos … Continue reading

snow days in Charlotte ~Personal post~

I realize I am way behind in blogging out our recent snow days here in Charlotte but man our house has head the plague of sickness for the last month! Still – I wanted to take a quick moment and share what we did during our snow days here. Think snow cream and paper masks that the boys got for Christmas from their uncle and mom over here with a new camera to test out :-)
I have to say that I am completely in love with the Fuji x-pro 1 but man has it had a bit of a learning curve for me! Fun and frustrating all at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tea party ~baby’s first year photography~

My little friend is getting so big! It’s so fun to see the “baby’s 1st year” participants as they grow! They change so much in that first year! This little guy is just about 6 months old during this photo session and is so smiley and in love with his big sister! I just love this age since they can sit on their own and they usually have a little bit of chub on their thighs and such loving personalities :-)

Please contact me if you would like more information on our first year program. We usually do 3 photo sessions around 3-4 months, 6-7 months and 1 year old with a beautiful coffee table album with the 1st year images at the completion of the series.

Little stinker ~Waxhaw child photographer~

Oh my goodness he is just pure sweetness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The stars aligned and man we got SO MANY wonderful images of this little chunky monkey! This is my FAVORITE age to photograph! It’s around this 5, 6, 7, 8 month old stage that babies are so smiley, chunky and ohhhhhh they laugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At around 7 months is when I suggest parents have their child’s portrait taken because they are usually able to sit at or around this age and they have a little meat on their bones by then too! and of course…it’s a great age for a sink bath full of bubbles!!!!!!!!!!!! I really meant to post these santa hat pictures at Christmas but yet again – things got away from me. Anyway – I hope you enjoy these images. I love the one of him looking up at the HUGE bear – this was TOTALLY his mom’s idea!

I love family photo sessions ~Ballantyne area family photographer~

Especially when there is a baby involved! I loved meeting this wonderful and fun family! I was so happy that we were able to meet up when all the extended family was in town to welcome the new little man!

Happy New Year! ~Charlotte area family photographer~

Wow how time flies for me between Sept-Dec! I had high hopes of keeping up with my blogging during the busy season …..BIG FAIL! So here I am trying to start 2014 off with a bang! I know, I really will try to put together a year in review of images from 2013 too – it’s on my to do list! Right when I get back from vacation that is! So yes, if you need me – I will be out of the office January 18-25th. YAY! YAY! YAY! In the mean time, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are sticking to your New Year resolutions :-P

Before I head out the door – here’s a little peek at a beautiful family session from December :-)
