Some personal FUN!

2 days in a row?! Now this is a big deal.

All you moms out there know how hard it is to get 3 minutes to your self. Especially when you start your day with two babies in your bed. (aka- who sleeps?!) But here I am- showered, dressed (well sort of. as long as pjs count), fed and sitting alone with my second (reheated twice) coffee actually blogging and emailing and editing away.  It’s a big deal.

I am planning on keeping things simple around here. (I write like I talk. Those of you that know me, know this.) But I do want to share a few pics of my people with you guys. Isla Drew turned ONE. WHOA. I have 5 kids now and 0 babies. That hurts. I still want 100000 babies. Which I thought that feeling was suppose to go away once you were done having kiddies. Nope. Anyways, she’s awesome and loving and silly and truly a gift. Funniest little unicorn you ever did see. She adores her brothers and they are obsessed with her. She fits right into their crazy, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Some of our sweet friends and family are in these photos as well. Life is so precious, I want to remember every moment. And every loved one.

Oh and some exciting news…my good friend Jessy (fab photog) and I are hosting our very first Photog Mama Photography class in a little over a week. I can’t wait to share all the fun with you guys. ❤

ok Happy Thursday beautiful friends!! xx

Blogger FAIL!!!

Charlotte, NC      {whoa holy huge update}


Can you believe it?


I deserve worst blogger award for 2014.  End of story.

But the other side to the story is I have super happy kids. Their Mommy has been full time Mommy again…and they are super content with that. Balancing work and babies…not the easiest job on earth. <Oh and ps- my husband has a hip and back injury which has changed our entire life and our scheduling. Not to mention, how the heck do you single Mommies do it?> So when everyone was taking and taking from me, I decided I had to give something up (or slack off for a little while). Yes, it was blogging.

All my beautiful clients were still getting in front of my camera, and receiving their gorgeous images a couple weeks later…but sadly, they didn’t get to see their sparkle of beauty on my blog. And now it’s practically summer. WHAT?

So here I sit finishing up a couple sessions, realizing I have a couple minutes of waiting time…and here I am. I want to share a few photos from the missing months of blogging.

I love you all and I am so grateful to have you all to share these gorgeous people with! I hope to be back to my regular blogging soon!

Jax is ONE!!

Charlotte, NC   {child photography}


One of my bestest girlfriend’s little man Jax just turned ONE, and of course we had to photograph this special time!! I love how much Natalie adores her babies. Not really sure if there is a way to even begin to explain it, but trust me- she loves them endlessly. Due to this crazy 2014 weather, we chose to use a friend’s studio instead of risking the 28 degree cold. Smart move, but I am really not made for studios. Keeping kids in one spot and posed is impossible in my opinion- but we managed! And Jax couldn’t have looked any cuter. He is wearing adorable outfits from RuffleButts & RuggedButts, and he is also one of their precious models for their Spring 2014 clothing lines! {which should be releasing soon!} I hope!! YAY!! Enjoy this little muffin…
