Oh Hi There Pretty Friends!!

Davidson, NC                                      {FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY}   {CHILD PHOTOGRAPHY}   {NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY}

 

Blog life…hmmm it’s not for me. Although, I think I’d be really great as an actual blogger. Like if that’s all I had to do. Just write about my crazy days and family and friends. I’d keep you guys entertained for a lifetime. For real. But unfortunately, this is just how I share a little bit of my passion and life with everyone. I wish I spent more time sharing…but it’s rough finding the extra time. Between the stacks of emails, memory cards, schedules, editing, more scheduling, learning, playing with my crazy boys, keeping my kiddos alive, keeping my doggies alive, keeping up with laundry, endless meals for everyone and well let’s be real- the endless list of to-dos….I’m just not sure how anyone has time to add blogging to their list.

I started this post last night, but then didn’t have time to finish it…so I’m back at it this morning. See what I mean?! Summer has been a whirlwind and I just dropped off our first little stud muffin to his first day of 2nd grade.  I was doing fine until the radio played a depressing song for moms called “slow down”…yeah, I may have shed some tears. It really slaps you in the face. The years are flying by. Summers home with 4 kids are super long, but in reality I already miss it. The chaos will one day be completely different chaos, and I’ll miss every moment of the craziness that we’re in now. I am thankful for photos, and iPhones. I do my best to capture it all before it disappears. Ok done venting.

So I can’t even remember the last sessions I shared with all of you but I will share some from my last month of fun! I will also do my best to share more with you all during this CRAZY fall/winter season of sessions! I am so blessed with such extraordinary clients and cannot wait to see everyone again this year! ❤ I love you guys and cheers to school being back, pumpkin pies, and cool crisp air. YES!!!

It’s that time.

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

 

It’s that time again. Time to share some of my recent beauties with all of you. I wish I was better with this, but I’m not.  We have had a super busy Spring so far and I have a feeling it isn’t going to slow down anytime soon! Maybe in July we will get a minute of chill time in front of the pool. But until then…we work.

Since I usually offer mini sessions only in the fall, I decided to offer a few weekends of minis this spring as well. (due to popular demand) Weekends have been slammed with gorgeous families and babies and I can’t complain! Plus the weather is starting to show it’s love again!

Everyday my coffee tastes as amazing as the day before…it reminds me of how my photography is to me. I love capturing friends, family and change everyday. It always tastes good. Each day there is a new story to tell. I love it best when I spend time with long-time clients and they express how they adore looking back through the years of photos I’ve captured. Their lives have changed, and so has mine. All in front of the camera. ❤

Ok enough rambling…no one has time for my babbling emotions. Check below for some fabulous people. That is all.

Until next time…xxoo

The Summer disappears…

Charlotte, NC    {family photography} {child photography}

 

So as you all have noticed…blogging hasn’t been on the top of my list lately. Like for the past 8 months actually. eek! Which also means my itty bitty baby is 8 months old already! Where do the days go?! I have so much to share and post that I really don’t know where to begin. hmmm. Our crazy family has been bouncing off the walls and trees (as usual) and we haven’t had one moment to consider even a thought of boredom. I have been doing tons and tons of sessions all over the city and I’m loving all the gorgeous families and babies! I even had a chance to sneak in a couple camping trips and a fun commercial photo shoot on the beach for the fabulous Shades Kids in Florida! In between all the chaos my camera broke. That was not fun. Nikon took her in and gave her a lot of love…so we are together again! whew! Ohhh and our home is under contract and we are moving in just a few weeks to a new home in Davidson! Oh no big deal. Just packing up a house full of crazies and all their belongings. 🙂

I am going to do my very best to update you guys more often and keep you up to date on our move too! Say a little prayer. Hopefully I will survive the move and the beginning of school! Enjoy these gorgeous people. and all their love stories.

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

a fun game of catch up…

Charlotte, NC    Family, Seniors, Newborn and Child Photography

 

This summer has been so so busy with amazing families and so many fun memories captured forever…but I have been working so many hours trying to get everyone their images as quickly as possible that I haven’t spent my normal amount of time on email, facebook updates and blogging. oops.  I decided to stop stressing about all the small stuff and try to do a quick blog post with some images from a few August sessions that I haven’t yet blogged.  Here you go…a giant page of fun and beauty!!!  I’ve been so so blessed to photograph every single one of these friends!

First up…

Kelsi {2013 Senior}

Huntersville, NC  Senior Photography

geez…how do I am so fortunate to photograph such stunningly gorgeous people??? Luckily, they’re just as gorgeous inside as out too! I had such a blast with my recent senior session, precious Kelsi! Kelsi is graduating very soon from Lake Norman Charter and will be making her way to UNC Wilmington this fall! I have a good feeling she will absolutely love UNCW and the fabulous beaches close by campus!

Although the weather wasn’t as warm as we would’ve hoped for- our session was incredible. I couldn’t have asked for more perfect light…or a more perfect model. I hope you enjoy Kelsi’s peek!!

Haley {2013 SENIOR}

Denver, NC  Senior Photography

 

Starting off the new year with fun…Haley is a senior at Hough High and can’t wait to be a freshmen in August at ECU! We were frozen outside but she rocked the cute looks and somehow ignored the arctic tundra air!! I loved photographing Haley and she is such a beautiful & sweet girl! Enjoy!!
