Baby’s 1st year pictures


It’s so fun to see just how much a little one can change in the matter of a year!  They start out so stinking tiny and end up with loads of personality by the end of the 1st year! Oh and I have to include some of Joy’s maternity images simply because I love them soooooooooooo much! AND of course I had to share their super cute family Halloween costumes because they are such a fun family!  Honestly we had so much fun during every single one of our sessions that it was really hard to figure out what images to share (as if you can’t tell by the visual overload below!).   Thank you so much Joy for allowing me to capture the 1st year of your sweet baby boy!  I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Susan’s spring family photo session ~Lake Wylie family photographer~

Oh my goodness I can not believe I forgot to post this beautiful family photo session from the spring.  I’m telling you – between posting a quick image or two to Facebook I often forget to blog the session (ok – honesty here….blogging is not my favorite thing to do either!).  Such a stunning group of kids and man were they so polite and sweet!!!!!!!!!!!  Loved spending the morning with this beautiful crew!

I am going to actually show you some of the pages out of their custom designed photo album (I do not put my logo on the actual pages – just for web viewing) and they chose a gorgeous gray linen fabric for the cover:

This first page we made into a panoramic image so that it look up both page 1 and page 2

I love seeing all the cute stages of a babies first year.

3-4months – holding their head up

6-7 months – sitting up

1 year- crawling or walking and usually a few teeth!

3months 6 months



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!





Sweet little girls 1st year photos! ~Charlotte area children’s photographer~

I know I have said this before but man it is just so much fun to see our baby’s first year customers as they grow! Such changes in that first year – it’s just amazing! Here is another one of our baby’s first year graduates – in her case we did newborn session, 7 month session (this is my personal favorite type/time of year session…so smiley!) and then of course her 1st birthday session with her big sister along with mom and dad too! My second favorite sessions to do are family sessions – love seeing mom in the photos because we are so rarely in pictures with our kids!

I hope everyone had a great start to their school year and have a safe fun….last bit of summer….this weekend!

1st year photo program

It just amazes me how fast little kids change so it makes it even more the better to be able to capture some of those ever changing moments for my families. Love this little sweetheart- his eyes are so beautiful! My first year package includes 3 sessions within the first year and I usually recommend them at 4 months, 7 months and 1 year. Why 4 and 7 months vs 3 and 6? Well I’ll tell ya! Babies can usually hold their heads up better at 4-5 months so it’s nice to be able to document that milestone and can make for some super cute pictures. Same thing with 7 months – look how cute his is sitting with his little naked tush! Most babies don’t sit well/for a good amount of time until more around 7 months 🙂
