Maleena {Hello World}

Cornelius, NC  Newborn Photography


Well friends, this is it for 2012…my final session (or so I think, currently). I have tried cutting myself off prior to the 16th of December, but with no luck. But I am so glad I hadn’t stopped yet, this lil Maleena rocked her first photoshoot. She slept like an angel and her big brother and sister got an extra chance to snuggle her. She is 12 days new and is absolutely perfect!!! I had such a great time with her and her family…and I am so happy for them! Welcome to the world of a family of 5!! Enjoy!


ps- and no, this won’t be my final post of 2012…I’ll post a few personals before long! 🙂

The Monastra Kiddies

Charlotte, NC  Children Photography


I am so glad I was able to squeeze in the Monastra family before Christmas this year…I was worried we were running out of time!! They have 4 beautiful children and I was so happy to get to hang out with them for the afternoon!  Jason (the oldest) is close to that “I’m too cool to smile” age but handsome, Taylor (the older daughter) is beautiful and just glows, Evan (the youngest son) is just precious…I could pinch him and lil miss Maggie is their gorgeous little 4 month old peanut, who steals the show—as lil princess babies should. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!!

SOO excited for the sweet sweet Lawwill Family…they are expecting another precious lil baby May 2013!! So Landon won’t be the youngest for much longer—and he is going to be an awesome big brother!! He has grown so much since last time I saw him, and gets cuter every time! A quick peek…

hello Stuart {newborn}

Charlotte, NC  Newborn Photography


I have been counting down to meet this new lil guy!! 10 days brand new and so so perfect. His head full of spiked hair just melts me!! He was so good for his photography debut and his big brother, Jack was incredible too. I had a wonderful morning at their home, capturing some really cute moments.  Stuart will be tough quickly with a big brother around…boys are so much fun!! Hope you enjoy!!

Braxton {6 months} + his big family

Shelby, NC  Family & Group Photography


I enjoyed an afternoon at Bridges BBQ in Shelby, NC before we started our awesome session in downtown Shelby a few days ago…and I am sure it was worth every calorie and every moment in the cold. Great BBQ (hushpuppies & sweet tea too), and awesome photos of a wonderful family. I could’ve stayed there for  10 days and had new, cool locations to shoot the whole time! I would never get bored there! Hillary has the sweetest lil 6 month, Braxton and he was such a trooper to party in the cold with us. We captured her whole family…including her mom and dad & her sister and brother-in-law. We laughed and froze…hope you enjoy!!
