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!!!

The Knag Family

Charlotte, NC    {family photography} {child photography}

 

I’m skipping around today with my sessions and had to blog this gorgeous family that I got to hang with last week! The Knag family is drop dead fabulous. And even better on the inside. I would choose to photograph them every week if I could. Seriously. We did nothing but laugh and chat…and well take a few photos. We met up in the NODA area of Charlotte and just played around the city streets! I could share 100 of their images and never get tired of their beautiful faces! Their three girls have become such little ladies over the years and are such a joy to photograph. I’d have to say good parenting 101 is happening there! I feel lucky and honored to share this family with you all!!

ps- I am pretty sure these girls should all be full time child models. just sayin’ ❤

Enjoy! xo

The Cambruzzi Family

Cornelius, NC    {Family Photography, Child Photography}

 

I love when I walk into a family’s home and instantly feel like I was meant to be there, and we just click. Allie and Rob did just that. I think I laughed for almost 2 hours straight. It was great. I had just met them, and Allie’s adorable parents…but somehow felt like I had known them forever. This makes my job so much easier. Allie is so laid back and relaxed, and their handsome little man, Trip will grow up seeing that as well. Trip was around 7 weeks old when we did his session, and he was such a great sport! I hope you can see their sweet love in the few images I show you all…enjoy!

Matilda Jane rocks our world!!

December 2013      {child photography}     Charlotte, North Carolina

All you Moms & ladies out there get ready to start shopping…Matilda Jane has done it again, they have revealed the second release to their Paint by Numbers collection! They never cease to amaze me. I seem to only wish for a little girl when I see their clothing. I want every single piece in every single collection. So I have to settle for second best…buying it for myself ( YES– they make adult sizes too!) and all my sweet friend’s little girls!

Matilda Jane has the most unique, stylish, mix n match clothing line for little girls I have ever seen, and beyond well-made to top it off.

Last week when we received our MJ products in their fancy & fun packaging we immediately felt special (it was like opening Christmas a couple weeks early!) and could tell the quality was as superior as each time before. We adore what they sent us…and love that you can mix and match the pieces with tons and tons of other items they sell as well. As a photographer, I appreciate the parents that spend the time to put their little girls in clothing that photographs well. Matilda Jane Clothing does just that, plus more. (As I sit here typing, I keep thinking to myself…maybe I should be working for MJ with this much love for their clothing! Or just suck it up and add a little girl to our three wild boys!)

Here is the Turtle Dove Knot Top paired with the Strippling Tee and Gallery Leggings from the second release of the Paint by Numbers Collection. Our precious little model Kallyn shines in these pieces.  I love all the detail with each piece, and how soft and fun it is for a 3 year old to play around in!  The colors are STUNNING in this collection. Distinct vibrant jewel tones, with classic prints mixed in make these pieces blend perfectly for Fall or Winter!

Hope you enjoy a peek at this magical world of Matilda Jane Clothing!!

Kelsi {2013 Senior}

Huntersville, NC  Senior Photography

geez…how do I am so fortunate to photograph such stunningly gorgeous people??? Luckily, they’re just as gorgeous inside as out too! I had such a blast with my recent senior session, precious Kelsi! Kelsi is graduating very soon from Lake Norman Charter and will be making her way to UNC Wilmington this fall! I have a good feeling she will absolutely love UNCW and the fabulous beaches close by campus!

Although the weather wasn’t as warm as we would’ve hoped for- our session was incredible. I couldn’t have asked for more perfect light…or a more perfect model. I hope you enjoy Kelsi’s peek!!
