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!

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 Roan Family

Charlotte, NC  Family & Group Photography


A few weeks ago I met the adorable Jessica, she was referred to me through a friend to do her family photos of her new lil nugget and her tiny lil tot man— it went perfectly. Her family is precious and we had such a fun time romping and rolling around their yard and home. A week later she called and asked me to try to make it work for another session in another week…her sweet sister was coming in town with her family.  So, I was blessed to photograph Jessica and her family twice in a few weeks time—it was fantastic. I’m pretty sure if she lived closer, we’d be having wine daily and letting our lil boys frolic. Jessica’s sister, Tiffany, and her sweet family were just as wonderful. They made my “job” {well, if you want to call it that} very easy. They played and I captured every second. They have 2 lil girls that are behaved so perfectly and showed off their fun personalities at the same time. I am so glad we got lots of sparkly shots of the 4 cousins together!! Enjoy!!

Braxton {6 months} + his big family

Shelby, NC  Family & Group Photography


I enjoyed an afternoon at Bridges BBQ in Shelby, NC before we started our awesome session in downtown Shelby a few days ago…and I am sure it was worth every calorie and every moment in the cold. Great BBQ (hushpuppies & sweet tea too), and awesome photos of a wonderful family. I could’ve stayed there for  10 days and had new, cool locations to shoot the whole time! I would never get bored there! Hillary has the sweetest lil 6 month, Braxton and he was such a trooper to party in the cold with us. We captured her whole family…including her mom and dad & her sister and brother-in-law. We laughed and froze…hope you enjoy!!
