The Rheault Family

Charlotte, NC    Family Photography, Child Photography

 

Nothing is more thrilling for me then a large and fun family. Yes, I know, I sound crazy. But it’s my truth. I enjoy the challenge and all the high energy.  I am driven by people and their energy so it’s 100% up my alley. It brings so much joy to me to watch a large family playing and interacting together.  In my heart I feel like it is what makes this world go round.  The Rheault Family succeeded in all these things in my eyes! Their handsome twin boys slept on their way to meet me, so in the beginning we were trying to wrangle them into a happy place…but their precious littlest man, Bentley made up for that with his happiness. I loved how peaceful & loving their Mom, Suzie was and how fun and loving their Dad, Matt was! Henry and Carson eventually woke up all the way and were ready to show me their fabulous sides of fun. The sun was breath-takingly gorgeous and our final product makes me smile from ear to ear.

Enjoy their family joy.

Cameron {hello world}

Charlotte, NC    Newborn Photography,  Family Photography 

 

What man enjoys giving up his football Sunday for family photos??? Yep, I hear crickets. No one that I know.  So I knew when we scheduled a morning session for the Mayes Family it couldn’t last hours and hours. 🙂 Robert and Megan were awesome. And their new little man, Cam ROCKED it. I couldn’t believe how perfect and tiny he was for being a month old already. I had hopes of getting a few “newborn” shots of him, but assumed he would be too old to squish up into gooey perfection for us.  I was wrong…being a month early, gave us an extra month of newborn shots! YAY!  I loved hanging out with the Mayes’ and cuddling their precious Cam.

Enjoy!!!

Lyla {hello world}

Denver, NC    Newborn Photography, Family Photography

 

Oh sweet Lyla…her mommy and daddy so badly wanted her to sleep for her newborn session, but already knew before we started that if she had other plans then she would win. 🙂 She won.  She has been putting her foot down since in the womb. She does it her way. End of story. And that sometimes happens with newborns, so we go to plan B…capture them happy and wide awake.  We made it work and we had a gorgeous sunset to top it off! I loved spending my evening with the Alexander’s beautiful new addition…hope you enjoy!!

sweet Peyton

 Charlotte, NC   Family and Child Photography

 

Tracy & Ron have such a cool story, {not that all my families don’t…} but it’s yet one more thing I adore about my job. I get to tell the love story of Tracy and Ron… which equals the precious Peyton. The Singer Family is the real life Brady Bunch…both having 2 children prior, and now with their newest addition! We decided to have their first session mainly focused on Peyton (since she is still so new), and our next session soon with all the kiddos! I loved my time with them and we had tons and tons of laughs hanging outside on their gorgeous farm.  Peyton wasn’t into the whole “sleep” thing as we had hoped, but I am so happy I was able to capture her gorgeous eyes! I hope you enjoy a few sneak peeks of their lovely family!!

The Sink Family

Denver, NC    Family Photography, Children Photography

 

How could you not adore the Sink family?? I wanted to hang out at their house all night! We had rescheduled their session too many times to count (lovely summer weather) so we were determined to make it work this time!!! We quickly figured out that staying inside their home was NOT the answer to happy and fun kiddos!!! Outside we went…and the fun began! Their girls are to die for and I would easily keep them as my own. Such a fun family to photograph and you can see it in all their images!! Enjoy!!

Kolton {hello world}

Huntersville, NC    Newborn Photography, Family Photography

 

What a wonderful little surprise it was to meet the beautiful Kiser family recently, and their brand new addition- Kolton.  I met them at a friend of their family’s home for their fun outdoor session- and quickly realized how small of a world it really is.  My Daddy grew up with the sweet man that allowed us to use his property and fabulous “toys” for our session. I love living so close to the town that I grew up in…it will always be home. 🙂 Good southern gentlemen are priceless.

Kolton was absolutely a dream for his entire session. He almost slept the whole 2-3 hours we played and let his sister snuggle all over him.  He is such a handsome baby boy. all 10lbs of him! 🙂 I loved their session, and their precious family!! Hope you enjoy it too!!

Hi Alastair {hello world}

Cornelius, NC    Newborn Photography, Family Photography 

 

I truly adore working outdoors, if I had to work in a studio or an office all day every day I would be heartbroken.  It makes me so excited to hear from a new mom that she wants to have her baby’s newborn photos taken outside! I met the Young family a few weeks ago, and their tiny new addition, Alastair.  Oh my-he stole my heart when I saw him. It was immediate. I think it was his size at first. He was barely visible in his car seat.  The Young’s found out at their 18 week ultrasound that their little angel would be born with a Cleft Lip, so they were prepared when he entered this crazy world.  It was awesome learning about his cleft lip first hand, and hearing that in a short 3 months he would have a big surgery to fix it.  I am so glad we captured Alastair before his surgery, so he can look back one day on these images and realize how handsome and special he really is. I enjoyed every moment with all of them, and we hung out and captured their love until the sun was completely gone.

Hope you enjoy their memories…

The Preslar Family

Charlotte, NC   Family and Child Photography

I had such a fun (and hot too) morning with the Preslar Family!  Their precious girls Claire & Ella Grace are 6 months old now, and it seems like we were just doing their newborn session a few weeks ago! They are an incredibly sweet family with so much love for their little girls, and I am 100% positive it is all teamwork all day and night long to master life!  Although it got hot fast (thank you summer for finally showing up), we still got a bunch of fun captured.  Humor has kept these 4 going so strong…and I love it!

Enjoy!!
