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.

Spring fun!!! Bring on SUMMER!!!

Charlotte, NC    {family photography} {child photography} 

Another month passes…and I am still behind with blogging. darn. Actually it’s a month and a half to be exact. May is such a busy and fun month though. May brings on all the beautiful flowers and people…with very little rainy ruined days! NC has been blessed with incredible weather so I’ve had barely a moment away from my camera or computer. So many brand new baby miracles, graduates starting onto a new page in their lives and families coming together and sharing their stories with me and my camera. It has been full of blessings!  And since today is the first day of June, I thought I’d celebrate with a new blog post and flood your eyes with my gorgeous clients! ❤

GOAL OF THE MONTH: I am going to try to bring my camera out for my own little dudes more…so hopefully I’ll have some new photos to share with all of you soon! And one day I will start a mom blog with all the ridiculous/hilarious stories that happen to us or around us on a daily basis. Maybe that will be next month’s goal. Seriously- you guys wouldn’t even believe all the craziness that goes on around the Ras home! 🙂

Bring on Summer and all it’s awesomeness!

xo Heather

CAM is ONE!!

Cornelius, NC     {family photography, child photography}

 

I cannot believe how incredibly fast this past year has gone! I feel like I was doing Cam’s newborn photos a short few weeks ago honestly! But apparently not– he’s getting ready to turn ONE!!! I love Megan and Robert (his cool parents)- they are hilarious and always make for a great time! Cam is such a cool dude too. His hair will melt you, and oh don’t forget those baby blues! He was such a happy guy for his session, until we brought out the cake! Maybe it was the melted cake that pissed him off but the poor little muffin was quickly over it! He still made for some awesome cake pics! I hope you enjoy!!

Hello Jake!!

Huntersville, NC    {hello world, newborn photographer, child photographer}

 

Oh I got to snuggle so many squishy babes this month, and I loved every one of them! I am on a roll today and feel like I might actually get a few blog posts out for you all to enjoy! So here I go…

Brand new little Jake was a superstar! When people use the line “I slept like a baby”- they don’t have kids. But this little Jake did just that, and slept through it all. One proud Mom, and 2 proud Grandmothers helped and watched it all! Jake is loved and he will have no choice but to love his parent’s alma mater -the Auburn Tigers! He sported lots of awesome Auburn gear! Enjoy a peek at his beautiful session.

The Bullock Family

Charlotte, NC    {family photographer, child photographer}

 

The Bullock family was such a great time to photograph. They adore their handsome little man, Maxwell to pieces and you can see that in all their photos! I loved how much they all just wanted to play and do “real” life! And their dog, Thor wanted to be a part of it all too! Everyone knows I have a special spot inside for sweet pooches! Here are a few images from their summer family session of fun! Enjoy!!

Newborn Finn

Charlotte, NC    {newborn photographer}

 

To all you bloggers out there, you rock. I give you mad credit. I have so little time these days to blog, but today I am sharing one of my many many sessions lately.

Sweet sweet Finn was welcomed into the world by the most precious new parents, Cathrin and Drew! I photographed this awesome couple many many years ago and was over the moon excited when they contacted me with great news of a baby on the way! 🙂 I couldn’t wait to meet little Finn once he arrived. He is perfect. Chubby little perfection. I just love him. He slept like an angel and was the best newborn model for us. I hope you enjoy a peek at his greatness!!

Enjoy!!

The Romano Family in 2013

Concord, NC   {Family Photography}

 

Shocker- we are 4 days in to 2014 and I haven’t completed my blogging for 2013 yet. (as I had planned)  The goal was to finish up with the final 3 or 4 sessions and have them all posted by midnight when the ball dropped. The ball dropped, and I dropped the ball too because I chose my boys instead. I let my little guys stay up until midnight and dance with sparklers with their best friends and mine too.  I hope no one really minds…because we are never promised tomorrow, or another year.  Life is so precious. So here I sit, excited to finally blog my last few entries for 2013 and start posting all my fabulous new sessions in 2014! Happy New Year friends!!! Cheers to a healthy, happy, loving and blessed 2014!!!

 

Now for the Romano Family…

My year is not complete without photographing this wonderful family.  I have captured their family’s love since the beginning. Angela and Mark are magnetic. They pull you in as much as they pull each other in. My heart grows larger when I am around them. They are real. They are strong. Their love endures all. I am so blessed to call them our dear friends. I survived this fall because of these two. Angela was there being my children’s other mom all hours of the day and night. (being injured with 3 boys wasn’t easy for me) I will never be able to thank her enough. I could bubble over for days and days about these two, but I must move on to their vibrant little boys!

Marek: this gorgeous 5 1/2 year old rockstar has a heart as big as Mother Teresa. He pushes every single button and person to the limit (with insane energy for days), but oddly enough it makes you love him even more. He has the fashion and style of a GQ model. I am still clueless on where this comes from. “Heather, you look beautiful, and I love your lipstick color.”- – what other five year old says this? Watch out parents…he will have all your little ladies under his love spell soon enough!!

Maddox: sweet, calm and HILARIOUS (without knowing it) 3 1/2 years old dude. Maddox wants to dance to his own beat, and relax without anyone bugging him. He has an old soul, and just goes with the flow. (most of the time) You can’t help but love Maddox too. His adorable quirks make you want to squeeze him tightly. He is the one to bring you a blanket when you are cold, and the first one to jump into your lap to snuggle every time. Love him!!

As you can probably tell- this family is very special to me, and I am so thankful for them! Their images capture them so perfectly…they truly love this much, and play this much, so I hope everyone can see what I see. And I wish that all of you get to experience a friendship this blessed in 2014 if you haven’t already!!!

Enjoy xo

The Maher Family

Charlotte, NC    Family photography

 

The Maher Family started off on the wrong foot (literally)– I felt terrible, Heather (the precious Mommy) was attacked by a giant pile of ants! 😦  That is never good, but I am grateful it wasn’t one of their precious lil ones!! They were fun to photograph and Kaylan, their daughter has an incredible imagination that entertained us all the whole time!! Hope you enjoy their (very late) peek!!!
