Oh Hi There Pretty Friends!!

Blog life…hmmm it’s not for me. Although, I think I’d be really great as an actual blogger. Like if that’s all I had to do. Just write about my crazy days and family and friends. I’d keep you guys entertained for a lifetime. For real. But unfortunately, this is just how I share a little bit of my passion and life with everyone. I wish I spent more time sharing…but it’s rough finding the extra time. Between the stacks of emails, memory cards, schedules, editing, more scheduling, learning, playing with my crazy boys, keeping my kiddos alive, keeping my doggies alive, keeping up with laundry, endless meals for everyone and well let’s be real- the endless list of to-dos….I’m just not sure how anyone has time to add blogging to their list.

I started this post last night, but then didn’t have time to finish it…so I’m back at it this morning. See what I mean?! Summer has been a whirlwind and I just dropped off our first little stud muffin to his first day of 2nd grade.  I was doing fine until the radio played a depressing song for moms called “slow down”…yeah, I may have shed some tears. It really slaps you in the face. The years are flying by. Summers home with 4 kids are super long, but in reality I already miss it. The chaos will one day be completely different chaos, and I’ll miss every moment of the craziness that we’re in now. I am thankful for photos, and iPhones. I do my best to capture it all before it disappears. Ok done venting.

So I can’t even remember the last sessions I shared with all of you but I will share some from my last month of fun! I will also do my best to share more with you all during this CRAZY fall/winter season of sessions! I am so blessed with such extraordinary clients and cannot wait to see everyone again this year! ❤ I love you guys and cheers to school being back, pumpkin pies, and cool crisp air. YES!!!

Minis, minis and more minis OH MY!!!

Charlotte, NC     {family photography} {child photography}

Our mini sessions this Fall have been incredible!!!! I can’t even believe how smoothly they have gone! The weather has been spectacular so far and the locations and set ups have worked out perfectly! I hope everyone is loving their outcomes as well! I am down to two more full days of minis for the entire YEAR!!! AHHHH!! I will have some newborn sessions here and there but I will basically be closing down for the season after those!

This baby boy growing in my tummy will soon be too giant for me to be doing my normal jumping around and crazy acts when I’m photographing everyone. He is apparently 5lbs 8oz at this point- which is bigger than my other babies at birth (eek!!) so I need to prepare for a chubby little man! I will continue to photograph my family and friends through the Holidays so hopefully I will still be posting some fun blogs every now and then!! But for now, I still have LOTS of sessions and gorgeous families to share with you!! I hope you enjoy!!

Chat soon friends!! xo

The Geers Family

Davidson, NC    Family Photography

 

I hate to sound repetitive but I must have had a year of all my favs…because the Geers are at the top of my list for most fabulous families I adore photographing. It is wild how easy they make my job. It reminds me how it isn’t a job…and how much I LOVE what I do. Kelly & Greg have some of the sweetest, well-manered kids I have ever met, plus they couldn’t be any more adorable if they tried. Wonderful love shows in photos…look, and you will see. xxoo

Enjoy some shots of many of the gorgeous families that I am grateful to have shot this Fall/Winter despite my crazy arm issues!! We had a blast and I loved seeing so many familiar faces, and many new ones too! I plan on doing many weekends of mini sessions in the Fall and Winter of 2014!!  I will planning those dates in the beginning of the new year and will fill them on a first come, first serve basis! Can’t wait!!! Enjoy!!!

Brandon + Shana = CAM

Cornelius, NC    {Family & Maternity Photography}

 

I have so many photos to share with you all it may take a week straight of posting to get them all on here!!! I can’t pick favorites from this fabulous maternity session we had in October! Brandon {Daddy to be} and I have grown up together and I was so excited when his beautiful wife Shana contacted me about photographing their growing family! They are doggie lovers like myself so we had to photograph their “babies” with that sweet bump as well!! I could’ve hung out all night with these two love birds!! I cannot wait to meet their perfect little man, Cam any day now!! Enjoy!!

Madi is ONE

Cherryville, NC   Child photographer

 

I can’t handle this lil pumpkin’s cuteness. Madeline was so fantastic.  Her mama rocked the tunes in the car loud enough that Madi was able to dance throughout her entire 1st birthday session! I can’t believe it was a year ago that I was doing her newborn shots…and now she is wide open and happy as a peach!! Enjoy a peek t this fun session!!

The Koster Family

Cornelius, NC   Family photography, Child Photography

 

Can you imagine having 4 beautiful children all with stunningly blonde hair and bright blue eyes??? WOW!!! The Koster Family has to get looks everywhere they go, because in all the years I’ve photographed families I had never seen four toeheads until now! The Kosters were incredible to photograph…beyond the obvious (being gorgeous), they were so so fun and laid back.  Their children were so well behaved but still played and enjoyed themselves. I adore how they seem to take care of one another and love each other so much! I am so blessed to get the opportunity to photograph and become friends with such awesome families!!  Enjoy their lil peek!!

oh and ps- their baby Emmy just turned 1 so we had a fabulous cake smash to celebrate!!! enjoy!!

The Switzer Family

Mooresville, NC  Family Lifestyle Photography

 

Having three boys takes a family’s energy to the next level, I speak from experience…but I love it!  Had a great time capturing the Switzer family and all their energy! A beautiful family that I am proud to call friends.  Ryder, being the youngest was happy as long as he had a “weapon” in his hands at all times- yet again I can totally relate! Its so wonderful seeing how much the two older boys, Dax and Chance, love each other. (I remember the days of more tears then laughs.) We had awesome weather and gorgeous fall color…enjoy!!
