August 27, 2011: Charlotte, NC ย {9 months}

So excited to see this wonderful family again, we had a great time laughing & entertaining sweet Clara! I can’t believe 3 months has passed already since we did her 6 month pictures…she is really becoming such a love bug with so much happiness! Looking forward to her big 1 year “special” session!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy this gorgeous family!

Baby Kylie

August 24, 2011: Concord, NC ย {Hello World}


Yesterday I got the pleasure of meeting yet another wonderful new family of 3, and catching some memories for them of their little bundle of joy- Kylie! Being a mommy of almost 3 boys, I quickly have forgotten what the first weeks at home with your first new baby is all about. Daniel & Megan are hopelessly in love with their lovebug and you can see it through all their photos. Kylie is 8 days old and looks as wise as an adult…she is precious and seems so sure about life already! ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations Charlton Family! I can’t wait to watch this little one grow & change!



Drew + Cathrin <3

August 22, 2011: Charlotte, NC ย {engagement session}


Loved meeting this adorable couple yesterday, and learning all about their unique story! Drew is originally from Charlotte, but Cathrin is from Germany…and they met over 4 year ago at their job. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so awesome how fate leads people together! They spent a lot of their time in Phillips place (where we shot the session) when they were first dating. Can’t wait to watch their awesome future unfold…and see photos from an amazing wedding in Germany next August! Enjoy!!!


The Kastler Family

August 17, 2011: Harrisburg, NC

Cutest lil couple ever made 3 of the cutest kiddies ever…and they call themselves the Kastlers. ๐Ÿ™‚ Had a fun day playing & photographing this bunch…although the heat once again tortured all of us. Susan & Chris dated some in high school, then in college and now a “few” ย years later they have a big family of 5. Their kids, Cavan (5), Sloan(3) & Carlin(9 months) are sweet & full of fire (like my boys). Can’t wait to photograph them again soon…enjoy!

Liam 9 months

August 16, 2011: Mooresville, NC

Little Liam is not so little anymore…9 months old and the size of a much bigger boy!! ๐Ÿ™‚ He is one very happy little camper…cough and all he smiled and laughed the whole time I was there! Liam loves his big sister, Lola too! Can’t wait to see him walking around very soon!!


Welcome Finley Grace

August 14, 2011: Charlotte, NC ย  ย {HELLO WORLD}

I finally got to meet the newest addition to the Shelton family today, and I fell in love instantly!! Beautiful & tiny Finley Grace is 7 days new and just perfect! Those Shelton’s sure do know the recipe to beautiful children!! She slept like an angel from the moment I arrived basically until we finished up…I guess that’s how it goes with the 3rd baby! ๐Ÿ™‚ She has an older brother, Connor and an older sister, Emma that both adore her. I cannot wait to watch her grow up over the months & years! Congrats Meghan & John!

The expanding Hampton Family ๐Ÿ™‚

Having this awesome hobby of mine has given me the most incredible opportunity to meet new people often, and just as much as I love taking photos- I adore meeting new people! I love new stories, new faces, new dreams and new goals written all over their faces! ย I love learning their stories through each session and being able to story-tell with my photos!

With that being said, I met another gorgeous family of 4 this week, that are expecting their 3rd beautiful baby this winter! ๐Ÿ™‚ They were troopers in the heat and have one of the most photogenic kiddies I have ever put my camera near! Such sweet, sweet girls!! Love their story and can’t wait to watch the lil bump on Mommy grow!
