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!!

Hi Jax {hello world}

Charlotte, NC  {newborn photography, family photography}

 

Another beautiful family is blessed with a gorgeous & healthy baby boy!! I am so blessed to have been able to capture such a special time of their lives for them! Stephanie and James welcomed their little man Jackson to this world earlier this month and they seem to have mastered this “baby” stuff already! It has to help that he is so so cute! I hope you enjoy a few of their precious images…

The Clary Family

Huntersville, NC    Family Photography

 

I have missed the Clary Family. It’s sad when you go from seeing a family every 3 months for their watch me grow sessions, and then their baby turns one and you only get to see them once or twice a year. boo. But I don’t want to whine, so on a cheery note- I got to spend an afternoon and evening with the Clary’s.  Their little Carter was as happy as can be until I got the bright idea of telling him to run around, and down he went- face first. The concrete wasn’t so forgiving, and the tears started flowing. 😦  {photographer fail} But after all that we still have some awesome images and LOTS of hysterical memories made!!! Enjoy!!!

The Rhyne Family

Davidson, NC  Family Photography

 

I absolutely felt blessed to have captured this fabulous family’s sweet moments recently.  The Rhyne Family actually won my session in a silent auction at the Yvette W. Ferris Foundation last year- so I know this session meant even more than the normal family session. Every penny went to a fantastic cause. Yvette is another extraordinary client of mine, not to mention inspirational on so many levels. If you’d like to know more about her foundation please visit http://www.ywff.org.

Back to the Rhyne’s…they were a blast to shoot. We laughed deep belly laughs and chatted non-stop. Davis and Katie are gorgeous blondies- that are just as well mannered and loving as they are beautiful. In the end, while saying goodbyes- Katie went into her car and came back with a little note that said “I love U” and on the other side it said “I love U a lot lot lot lot”. She made my week. I love what I do. I hope you enjoy their moments!!

PS- they couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting either. spectacular farm. 🙂
