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!)

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!!

Blogger FAIL!!!

Charlotte, NC      {whoa holy huge update}

 

Can you believe it?

I AM ALIVE.

I deserve worst blogger award for 2014.  End of story.

But the other side to the story is I have super happy kids. Their Mommy has been full time Mommy again…and they are super content with that. Balancing work and babies…not the easiest job on earth. <Oh and ps- my husband has a hip and back injury which has changed our entire life and our scheduling. Not to mention, how the heck do you single Mommies do it?> So when everyone was taking and taking from me, I decided I had to give something up (or slack off for a little while). Yes, it was blogging.

All my beautiful clients were still getting in front of my camera, and receiving their gorgeous images a couple weeks later…but sadly, they didn’t get to see their sparkle of beauty on my blog. And now it’s practically summer. WHAT?

So here I sit finishing up a couple sessions, realizing I have a couple minutes of waiting time…and here I am. I want to share a few photos from the missing months of blogging.

I love you all and I am so grateful to have you all to share these gorgeous people with! I hope to be back to my regular blogging soon!

Hayes Grier

Charlotte, NC       {portrait photography, teen photography}

 

I had such a fun time photographing Hayes a few weeks ago…we had no plan, no guidelines and a beautiful evening to capture the real Hayes!! The only thing we missed was his sporty style, that he usually represents! It’s got to be tough being 13 and that adorable!!! The Griers have raised all of their boys to be wonderful men, and I am so thankful to have been a witness to that over the years!

 

Hayes doesn’t take a bad photo. And couldn’t be any sweeter if he tried. The crazy social media world has blown up around him and he is still Hayes. I love that! Sorry these are so late…blogging hasn’t been on schedule lately! oops!!

ENJOY!!! xo

March goodies…a fabulous mix of beauty

Charlotte, NC      {family photography}  {child photography}  {newborn photography}

 

Spring is officially here…and other than the obvious gorgeous weather & gorgeous blooms everywhere– I’ve been MIA! No blogging, barely any facebook posts, and just getting enough time in the day to catch a few hours of sleep— yes, this is Spring. I have been spending most of the past month trying to catch up on all the sessions that were rescheduled from all the nasty weather this winter too. Hello crazy town.

In the last month I did manage to finally start a photography instagram page, which is exciting.  ( username: HeatherMariePhotographyNC )  I love posting sneak peeks from the back of my camera on there. And giving a little preview of my own crazy life as well. oh, which reminds me…HAPPY EASTER friends!! I hope everyone celebrated with all their loved ones and enjoyed such a special day! <3

Now to share a few shots from the past month! I won’t be doing my full blog posts with these but I adored each and every one of these sessions! I will be back to my regular blogging soon, PROMISE!!

Thank you for taking the time out of your fabulous Spring to check these out!!!

The Stawick Family

Charlotte, NC    {family photography}

So two of my favorite things on earth were under the same roof for the Stawick Family’s session… (and no I’m not talking about the doughnuts) squishy-faced doggies and kiddies! I could move right in. Erica and Steve have the two cutest pugs I have ever seen- hands down. And now have added a second precious baby to their little family- beautiful lil Sophie. Charlie, the big brother who just turned two, could have anything I own. That lil guy had some way of sucking me in, and truly could have come home with me! Charlie was so patient and sweet with his new baby sister, I still can’t really believe it. He just took it all in. Big blue eyes looking up at me, just waiting for whatever I said next. Yes, this seems rare to me. And extremely special. I hope his Mommy & Daddy know that. After many years of photographing children with their new baby siblings, I can say he is the minority. It’s such a HUGE change in their little worlds. As for lil Miss Sophie…she couldn’t be any more perfect!! That gorgeous head full of hair is amazing, and a dream for a lover of girlie bows.  She has already learned how to just go with the flow and fits right into their adorable family!

The Stawick’s played on their bed…pug babies and all. I wish I could post every single shot from their fun ruckus- but that would spoil all their fun! I loved how informal everything was and how their chaos is so beautiful. Hope you enjoy…
