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

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!!

Keira is ONE

Huntersville, NC    {child photography}

I cannot believe that all my parent’s words of wisdom are actually coming true. Everyone older than me told me year after year to slow down because time goes by way too fast.  I had no idea how fast they were meaning, but I wish I would’ve believed them and actually slowed down. Now as I type this blog about one of my best friend’s little girls turning ONE already, I am reminded to slow down. One year ago I was meeting this angel baby by the name of Keira Jewel. (how could she avoid being amazing with a name like that?) And now, 365 days have passed. She is walking, and chatting us up. Where did those days go? We all need to slow down and enjoy the now!!

Well, I hope you see how beautiful this lil one is inside and out through a few of her images! Enjoy!!

ps- I had to share one quick shot from her newborn session 1 year ago!

The Albright Boys

Charlotte, NC   {Child photography}


Here it is…the end of 2013. What a awesome way to finish up the year…two lil dudes, a bunch of balloons and some celebrating!! (which obviously included some fabulous singing too!!) Stuart just turned ONE, and Jack just turned 3- what’s not to celebrate?! I had so much fun rolling around, dancing and singing with these guys- can’t wait to see them all again!!! Hope you enjoy!!!
