First Day of Spring!

North Carolina has handed up hot sunny days and snow all in the same exact week. WHAT is going on?! I am so pumped to say Happy First Day of Spring. I hope NC gets the memo too.

I wanted to give you all a quick update on our Momtog Photography class from this past weekend. Mind blown. I didn’t know exactly what to expect with this first class but it was magical. I keep thinking back to the first time I picked up my first DSLR, and how I was completely lost. What I would’ve given to have a class like this at my finger tips. All the tricks and simple ways of learning the basics so we can actually capture our kids in decent photos. I think everyone learned a ton and had a blast while doing so. Shooting one on one with each photographer/momtog was key in my opinion. Hands on and VERY eye opening for all of us. I’ll share some photos at the end of some of the girls in action! 🙂

In other news, lots of babies are being born and lots of spring sessions are happening over here. Here are a few fun moments from the past week!! Hope you enjoy!!

 

The Graves Family added a new member to their tribe late last year, sweet lil Olivia- and I was honored to come to their home and capture some fun, real-life moments!! We had such a great time!DSC_1678 copy copy

Then I spent time with the precious Lozeau Family in uptown Charlotte- and we danced and played in the rain!! We did get some “dry” moments too, but it was a blast either way! Their little man, Julian was such a sweet boy! I hope you enjoy a few of their memories!!

RuffleButts and RuggedButts Spring 2014

Charlotte, NC   {commercial photography, child photography}

I have been so blessed to be a small part of such incredible businesses in the past year, I can’t even begin to express all my gratitude and respect for each and every one of them. I have learned so much from these experiences and people, and appreciate all they have trusted me with.  Having your own business is like having your own baby- and I am so sure it has to be difficult to rely on someone other than yourself to do the best for your business. I am so thankful that Amber and her entire family, and team at RuffleButts & RuggedButts have trusted me me with their photography needs!

RuffleButts and RuggedButts are beyond cute. If I had a little girl, I’m sure I would have her in RB every single day. Little girls in ruffled bloomers make the world a happier place. Their newer boy’s line, RuggedButts is also so so cute.  My boys love how soft all their clothes are too, to top it off!

I am so excited to share a few images from their just released Spring 2014 line with you all! We’ve had to wait since our big shoot this fall so we didn’t spoil all the excitement with their big spring release! It’s hard to pick my favorites from 100+ outfits we photographed to share with you all…but here are some of them!

Also, if you haven’t checked out RuffleButts or RuggedButts by now…get on it! Your kids will thank you!
