Fun family photo session at Julington-Durbin Preserve ~Saint Johns, Florida

Thank you so much Katie and family for being such fun test subjects!  This location turned out to be a great space for late afternoon family pictures!



Summer time family fun ~Charlotte area family photographer

Man oh man am I a bit behind in blogging! That’s what happens when you have such a fun and exciting summer! Here is a wonderful family portrait session that we did over the summer. Summer can be a great time to have your family pictures made! Look at this wonderful morning light!



Girls and Horses ~Charlotte child photography by Carrie Scruggs~

Oh so much fun!  What is it about girls – they all seem to LOVE horses!  We had a beautiful family photo session just before and some during and after a little storm rolled through giving us some beautiful colors in the clouds and sky!  I want to give a HUGE thank you to Country Haze Farm for being so stinking great to us!  Not only did they let us (at the last minute as another horse farm cancelled on us) play with their beautiful horses but they were so helpful and patient with us and the weather!  I HIGHLY recommend you check them out if you are looking to put your kids into any type of riding lessons.  They are just great folks over there and I feel lucky to have met them!

Huge thanks also to my lovely friends that got their whole family dressed up in these super cute outfits and braved the rain for me – just to help me with a photography assignment that I was working on!  You guys are awesome!

One last one – Thank you Chaeli for making this happen!  Without you I would have been lost with those big beautiful horses!

If you “like” us on facebook you’ll be the first to see images from our most current photography sessions (hint hint!)


6 month old baby love ~Ballantyne Baby photography by Carrie Scruggs~

My apologies on the lack of posting lately but this is always such a crazy busy time of year for us over here!  I do love it though when I get the chance to hang with a sweet 6 month old baby – they are always so fun and happy a this age!  Check this pure cuteness!

Who knew……. ~Charlotte family photography by Carrie Scruggs Photography~

One of the best compliments I have ever received:

“We all had a lot of fun, can’t wait to do it again-who would have thought pictures could be so much fun.”

Thanks LA!  Chaeli and I had a great time with your family too!


*TWINS* ~Fort Mill Newborn Photography by Carrie Scruggs~

Often times when I arrive to take pictures of sweet new babies I find the parents bickering about all sorts of various things and sometimes the tension is quite thick.  I mean it’s not like babies come with a manual.  They don’t have an “off” button when you want to roll over and sleep.  Everyone is tired, wishing they knew what in the heck these little creatures want 🙂  The early days of bringing home a new baby (much less two!) can be very stressful.

Well, as I said in my last post on this beautiful couple – they are just so in love and it gives me such a gooshy feeling just being around them.  They were soooooooooooo sweet with each other as they tried to figure out what needed to be done, who needed to be changed/fed etc.  I really felt their “team” effort and it just makes me go all soft inside.  Keep it up you two!  You are GREAT together and you are going to be fantastic parents!
