Here.

Davidson, NC      {family photography}  {child photography}

I am still in a moving coma, but I am here. We made it. Moving isn’t for the light hearted. Well, moving with 4 kids and 2 dogs isn’t.

Holy.

I am living out of boxes still…a month after we moved. And we may be living out of boxes until January. (ya’ll know this is a photographers craziest time of the year!) I don’t even know how I convinced myself to sit down long enough to blog this morning. But I did. WOOHOO!!! 🙂 I deserve a 3rd coffee. And maybe a 2nd bag of those amazing little lindt lindor limited edition peppermint white chocolate truffles I just killed between my sentences.

So, I have been juggling this insane weather, lots of newborns and a FULL schedule of sessions this month…and I have a great feeling that none of that is slowing down anytime soon. The monsoons we had here really ruined a couple weeks of sessions. But I did get to “start” working on my new office in our new home. I got myself a new desk, new rug and a bunch of fun stuff to add to my happy editing space. I will be sitting here. daily. often. Why not make it my one “girlie” place?! I may not be able to find socks, or pants but you better believe I know where every tiny newborn hat, charging cord and memory card is.

I want to share a few of the families I’ve been capturing lately and our last family shot in front of our old home! 🙂 Hope you enjoy! I’ll hopefully be back here soon…with even more memories to share! xo

Oh what a light a new little puppy can bring into a family…the beautiful Accetta Family added a new member and I got to meet him!! Chip. They have had a crazy 2013 (like many of us) and I am so glad I was able to capture some memories for them!!! I could take all 3 of their kiddies home with me- so precious!!

Enjoy!!

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!!

The Bailey Family

Huntersville, NC/ Lake Norman, NC    Family Photography, Child Photography

 

As I pulled up to meet the adorable Bailey Family, I couldn’t help but giggle.  A Christmas tree covered in lights (yep, a full size tree) was parked in the middle of the road, while 2 precious little girls twirled around it with pink cowboy boots on.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? My heart jumped with excitement. I knew right away that the Bailey family was going to be fun…and willing to be themselves even with my crazy self & giant camera smashed all in their personal space!  I was spot on. They rocked it. Their girls were beyond sweet, and I am quite sure they’re both extremely brilliant as well.  They were a blast and I hope you see that in all their photos!! Enjoy!!
