The Peterson Family

Charlotte, NC Family & Children Photography


Loved spending my Sunday evening with the Peterson family–Ben & Gabe are such joys to be around. Ben is two, full of curiosity & fun. He was born blind, but spending 2 minutes with him you immediately notice that he is identical to all the other 2 year old little boys…rough, tough and ready to wrestle, yell and run around like crazy! His little brother, Gabe is 9 months and is trying hard to keep up with his big brother…he crawls crazy fast and I have a feeling he’ll be walking any day now. We had such a fun time hanging out and doing what toddlers do best–laughing & playing. Hope you enjoy…

So yes, I know I’m suppose to be keeping these blog entries quick but there is just so much I want to say sometimes. Thankfully my photos speak for themselves and explain these families perfectly! Kate & Doug are awesome (lame word, I know–but I couldn’t come up with anything better to describe them!), you can see their love and respect for one another within moments of seeing them together. They have three of the most handsome boys, 8, 6 and 2 1/2 years old…and they are all so much fun to hang out with. The outdoors and being real boys is their life!!  The entire time we were playing I was thinking “geez, I can only dream for my kids to be this well-behaved and well-rounded at these ages.”  Their family was such a delight to photograph and I hope you enjoy!



my real job…Mommy

Charlotte, NC Children Photographer {personal}

a glance into my life…

My 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year job that never gives me a coffee break or a dull moment is being three handsome little boy’s mommy! I am so blessed but many days I wonder how I ended up with such wild little monkeys! Cade (almost 4) has a heart of gold, is strong inside and out and is by far my most responsible child at this point- always helping others and sharing. He is special, he is our first. Jax (just turned 2) is a whirlwind…a fire. He lights up everyone he meets. I have yet to meet someone that doesn’t fall in love with him. He will punch you and kiss you a moment later…how can you not laugh? He destroys everything in his path and takes a chance on anything he sees that looks dangerous. Many ER trips are under his belt, with surely many more to come. Bless him. Kolt (just 7 months) is an angel. The baby everyone dreams of really. Only fusses some when he’s sleepy but constantly smiles or laughs. So calm and laid back. He goes with the flow and watches his brothers in complete awe. All three of our boys are snuggly and cuddly, and I pray that never changes. They adore each other completely and cannot be separated. BUT they are 150% BOY!!!! (plus some!) So, my break from the chaos is coming to hang out with you and your family…and capture your happy moments!


Here are a couple photos of my attempt to get a shot of all 3 boys…this is my world in a nutshell. Enjoy.

The Mighty BRUCE Family

JD & Chris inspire me…they are incredible parents and love each other tremendously. I absolutely LOVED photographing their big family of 6 a couple of nights ago. We had so much fun and they were just along for the fun ride.  They have 4 very handsome boys, all unique and perfect in their own way. I am not sure how they have such sanity with four, I go crazy many days with my three. Well, our first stop ended up with creepy gypsies trying to scare us away from the “public” property, although I won’t be going back there again- it was so worth their awesome moments captured. And our session ended with a massive shirtless wrestling match between all the boys! Had a blast and hope you enjoy their photos…


The Beach vs The Romanos

{Lifestyle/Family Session}


So, my little secret is I have been at the beach for a week, doing no laundry, no dishes, no cooking and no editing…it has been somewhat heavenly. But no worries, I did not leave my camera at home…it came with me and so do the Romano Family! The Romanos packed it up and met us at the beach so we could get some spectacular beach photos to add to their walls of portraits! They are fun and will show their wild spirits in all their pictures…makes my heart smile. Hope you see the love I see…
