oops…I’m slightly behind with BLOGGING!!!

Charlotte, NC  {family photography}

 

There is a good chance many friends, clients and new beautiful faces have come here to my blog in the last two months and noticed how lame I am with keeping my blog updated. #bloggerfail Yes, not a very proud moment. BUT…I am NOT behind on my editing or my sessions or my kids or my family or my friends (ok I may be a tad behind on that one too!)— it’s FALL YA’LL!!! Fall is here and that means crisp air, beautiful colors, pumpkin EVERYTHING and most of all my busiest time of year! With that being said- my blogging and updating comes last in the line up. I hope you all don’t mind!  I do try to keep my facebook page (www.facebook.com/heathermariephotographync ) updated daily with sneak peeks and any other fun info I have up my sleeve!

I just counted…I am 41 sessions behind on the blog. Can you even imagine? WHOA. Sorry guys. I will make it up to you on my maternity leave surely. What else will I want to do while I’m snuggling my newest little ninja?!

Speaking of that…my personal update {obviously skip this part if you have no interest with this} is great! This baby is a beast. Measuring ahead and staying up high so I remember he is ALWAYS there. We both are loving this cooler weather though! His big brothers are getting excited about his arrival into this world. “Mom when is our brother going to pop out?” “Mom I think the baby is going to beat Cade in soccer once he gets out of there.” -daily questions and comments flow around our home.

Back to the Photography: I’ve already had our first 2 mini session dates and they were completely successful in all ways! The weather worked out for us and all the families looked amazing! Plus it was great exercise for me! I loved playing with all the precious little ones! I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love and also call it my job– you guys make that possible for me. Thank you. A million times.

I have been booked solid for the year for months now and I am so very grateful. I do hate letting people down now this close to Christmas card season that I don’t have any openings but I am doing a wait list and filling any cancellations off of that the moment I get one. So far- it’s working!! I am currently booking 2015 clients and filling spots very quickly if anyone is looking for next year sessions. Lots of the Spring slots are full, and we have TONS of 2015 babies on the horizon! YAY!!!

I want to share a few photos from the past month + with you guys, and hopefully all the sneak peeks very soon!! I hope you enjoy all the beauty that I get to see every day…

The Albright Family

Denver, NC  {family photography} {child photography}

 

my quick personal update:

So I may play catch up with my blogging for my entire life- so I hope everyone is starting to get use to that! eek!! Apparently my kids, hubby, clients, dogs or house are in need of 99.9% of my hours in each day. I am not complaining- at all. Actually I am so grateful. Days are filled with good stuff and happy people.  What a blessing! All three of our boys are now in some form of school 3 WHOLE mornings a week- so I am actually starting to get some time to sit and think again! Baby boy #4 is well on his way to taking over my body and so far so good! Still can’t believe we will be meeting him so soon! I plan on taking a couple weeks off when he arrives but no worries- I will be back in the saddle and photographing all my clients in 2015! I hope everyone is looking forward to the gorgeous fall as much as I am! ohhh pumpkin EVERYTHING and those colors!! I am over the moon! (plus it doesn’t hurt to enjoy a little bit cooler weather now that I’m packing on the baby bump pounds!) I can’t wait to see all my upcoming families and new babies…yay September is here!! xo

Now for this gorgeous family. This family makes me smile. Their session makes me smile. We had so much fun and they have so much love going on- it pours out in the photos! Their two little boys may have me wrapped around their pinkies too! I am sure you will see what I see…enjoy!!!

Dustin + Kristen = <3 {babybump love}

Charlotte, NC      {Family photography} {Maternity photography}

 

These two love birds are expecting their first baby in November, and how fun- they are having a little girl! :) We had the best lighting for our entire session and I had a blast hanging out with these two!  Kristen is very obviously glowing and so so tiny! She has the perfect little soccer ball belly! Baby Nora will be adored and hopefully arriving in November! Enjoy their love!!!

McLain is here!!

Mooresville, NC    {Newborn Photography} {Family Photography} {Child photography}

 

Oh how I ADORE this  family! They have always been such amazing clients and so so much fun to be around and photograph! They are perfect examples of why I love my job! The Rogers Family added another princess to their line up just recently…and she is just as fabulous as the others! When you are greeted at the door by two adorable toddlers how could you have a bad day? Ashley (mama bear) has mastered this baby stuff…she’s so impressive. Always so relaxed and easy going- where do I discover these characteristics within myself? hahaha! Little McLain slept just enough to capture exactly what we needed and what a fun challenge it always is getting three babies to stay still in front of my lens! You can probably picture it…lots of gummy bears and promises of yummy snacks! It’s even hard for me to sit still- so I get it! Wouldn’t we all rather be outside running around free? I love this family and ALL their photos from our session! I hope you do too!!

CAM is ONE!!

Cornelius, NC     {family photography, child photography}

 

I cannot believe how incredibly fast this past year has gone! I feel like I was doing Cam’s newborn photos a short few weeks ago honestly! But apparently not– he’s getting ready to turn ONE!!! I love Megan and Robert (his cool parents)- they are hilarious and always make for a great time! Cam is such a cool dude too. His hair will melt you, and oh don’t forget those baby blues! He was such a happy guy for his session, until we brought out the cake! Maybe it was the melted cake that pissed him off but the poor little muffin was quickly over it! He still made for some awesome cake pics! I hope you enjoy!!

Hi Hudson

Davidson, NC  {newborn photography}

 

What better way to end my Saturday but to show off a precious little cutie I met a couple weeks ago! When I walked into the Maiura’s home I knew I would love them instantly…they had 2 loving doggies greeting me front and center! And to top that off…one was my favorite breed of all time, a french bulldog! :) Ok not to stray away from the real reason I was lucky to meet this family, they had just welcomed their first little one to the world! Colleen and Tim already had it together too. I was impressed. Hudson has the good life. No doubt. We seriously laughed the entire session and had such an awesome time in their gorgeous home!! Hudson is perfect and you’ll agree!!

Enjoy!!

xo Happy Saturday!!

*Personal Update:

Some of you may have already heard the fantastic news about our little family, but for those of you who are still in the dark—- BABY BOY #4 is on his way!!! We are so excited to announce this little miracle to our family, friend and the world! He is already so loved! I am due towards the end of December this year but with the other 3 coming at least 4 weeks early- we expect him to arrive towards the end of November! I will be continuing to work as usual through our wild Fall season but will take most of December off with my growing family. Lots of celebrating up ahead!! God’s grace and plan once again, has truly amazed us! Thank you all for the support and love you have shown our family. I can’t wait to share another little love bug with you all! (lots of new baby photos will be pouring on here!) 

 

Now for a fun mega mix of some of the wonderful families and children I have photographed this month! I have the best clients ever!! They shine, just look and see!! Enjoy!!!

Hello Jake!!

Huntersville, NC    {hello world, newborn photographer, child photographer}

 

Oh I got to snuggle so many squishy babes this month, and I loved every one of them! I am on a roll today and feel like I might actually get a few blog posts out for you all to enjoy! So here I go…

Brand new little Jake was a superstar! When people use the line “I slept like a baby”- they don’t have kids. But this little Jake did just that, and slept through it all. One proud Mom, and 2 proud Grandmothers helped and watched it all! Jake is loved and he will have no choice but to love his parent’s alma mater -the Auburn Tigers! He sported lots of awesome Auburn gear! Enjoy a peek at his beautiful session.

The Bullock Family

Charlotte, NC    {family photographer, child photographer}

 

The Bullock family was such a great time to photograph. They adore their handsome little man, Maxwell to pieces and you can see that in all their photos! I loved how much they all just wanted to play and do “real” life! And their dog, Thor wanted to be a part of it all too! Everyone knows I have a special spot inside for sweet pooches! Here are a few images from their summer family session of fun! Enjoy!!

Newborn Finn

Charlotte, NC    {newborn photographer}

 

To all you bloggers out there, you rock. I give you mad credit. I have so little time these days to blog, but today I am sharing one of my many many sessions lately.

Sweet sweet Finn was welcomed into the world by the most precious new parents, Cathrin and Drew! I photographed this awesome couple many many years ago and was over the moon excited when they contacted me with great news of a baby on the way! :) I couldn’t wait to meet little Finn once he arrived. He is perfect. Chubby little perfection. I just love him. He slept like an angel and was the best newborn model for us. I hope you enjoy a peek at his greatness!!

Enjoy!!
