Just a quick post to say that I hope you are enjoying this weekend with those you love ūüôā


We love large families ~Ballantyne Area family photography


I was so happy to see Kiran and her beautiful family this year. ¬†They are just all so nice and her kids have the BEST manners! ¬†AND they are seasoned pro’s at taking pictures! ¬†It was so stinking cute how all the big sisters where like little mama’s to their baby brother! ¬†They each wanted their photo taken with him – I thought that was just so sweet! ¬†Sigh – his future wife will have a lot to live up to!

One of the perks of running a very small family photography business is that I get to see my families as they grow!¬† We were super excited to hear the Yancey’s were expecting twins!¬† They decided to go for baby #3 and ended up with #3 and #4!!!!¬† Their beautiful daughters (who we also got to photograph when they were babies) were so loving with their new brother and sisters.¬† Congratulations to you all!

If you guys haven’t met her personally – here’s my wonderful friend/assistant and her beautiful family!


XOXO  Love you Chaeli!

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‚Äôt 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 ūüôā¬† 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!
