First of all, where the heck did August go? I can’t believe it’s already September and almost time for all our fun Fall & Christmas pictures! Excited for pumpkin spice lattes & mulled cider…but today was not a hint of Autumn around the corner at all. I met the sweetest family today…the Sledge’s. Β πŸ™‚ Madison is 3 and absolutely full of life & imagination, and sweet Beckett who just smiles, laughs & is quite advanced for only 6 months! They drove down from Hickory and we made a morning of it…playing outside & laughing! πŸ™‚ beautiful children just make my day…this is why I love what I do! Enjoy…

Baby Kylie

August 24, 2011: Concord, NC Β {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! πŸ™‚ Congratulations Charlton Family! I can’t wait to watch this little one grow & change!



Drew + Cathrin <3

August 22, 2011: Charlotte, NC Β {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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ 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” Β 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!! πŸ™‚ 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

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! πŸ™‚ 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!
