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!!

It’s that time.

It’s that time again. Time to share some of my recent beauties with all of you. I wish I was better with this, but I’m not.  We have had a super busy Spring so far and I have a feeling it isn’t going to slow down anytime soon! Maybe in July we will get a minute of chill time in front of the pool. But until then…we work.

Since I usually offer mini sessions only in the fall, I decided to offer a few weekends of minis this spring as well. (due to popular demand) Weekends have been slammed with gorgeous families and babies and I can’t complain! Plus the weather is starting to show it’s love again!

Everyday my coffee tastes as amazing as the day before…it reminds me of how my photography is to me. I love capturing friends, family and change everyday. It always tastes good. Each day there is a new story to tell. I love it best when I spend time with long-time clients and they express how they adore looking back through the years of photos I’ve captured. Their lives have changed, and so has mine. All in front of the camera. ❤

Ok enough rambling…no one has time for my babbling emotions. Check below for some fabulous people. That is all.

Until next time…xxoo

Woohoo November is a whirlwind…all I’ve been doing is eating bags of chocolates, editing and taking thousands of photos of gorgeous people. And oh yes, loving on my baby boys too!

I don’t have much time for small chat due to the fact people are ready to get their Christmas cards rolling and they’re awaiting their beautiful photos from me— so here is a quick peek at some of the glitter that has been in front of my lens lately!

PS- Thanksgiving is less than a week away. oh my. I am so crazy Thankful.

Baby Bump Habul

Mooresville, NC      {maternity photography}

 

 

The Habul family is growing by 2 more tiny feet very soon! ❤ Kim and Kenny have 3 beautiful children currently…Lola, Liam and Keira and they soon will be adding their fourth little angel! I am so excited to find out if it’s a boy or girl, but either way they are crazy blessed! Kim is one of those beautiful pregnant women that all women hope to look like when they are pregnant! She glows. I could photograph her all day long..she makes my job so easy. Her beautiful home is the perfect backdrop to add to her beauty! I hope you love her images as much as I do!

Hello Jake!!

Huntersville, NC    {hello world, newborn photographer, child photographer}

 

Oh I got to snuggle so many squishy babes this month, and I loved every one of them! I am on a roll today and feel like I might actually get a few blog posts out for you all to enjoy! So here I go…

Brand new little Jake was a superstar! When people use the line “I slept like a baby”- they don’t have kids. But this little Jake did just that, and slept through it all. One proud Mom, and 2 proud Grandmothers helped and watched it all! Jake is loved and he will have no choice but to love his parent’s alma mater -the Auburn Tigers! He sported lots of awesome Auburn gear! Enjoy a peek at his beautiful session.

The Romano Family in 2013

Concord, NC   {Family Photography}

 

Shocker- we are 4 days in to 2014 and I haven’t completed my blogging for 2013 yet. (as I had planned)  The goal was to finish up with the final 3 or 4 sessions and have them all posted by midnight when the ball dropped. The ball dropped, and I dropped the ball too because I chose my boys instead. I let my little guys stay up until midnight and dance with sparklers with their best friends and mine too.  I hope no one really minds…because we are never promised tomorrow, or another year.  Life is so precious. So here I sit, excited to finally blog my last few entries for 2013 and start posting all my fabulous new sessions in 2014! Happy New Year friends!!! Cheers to a healthy, happy, loving and blessed 2014!!!

 

Now for the Romano Family…

My year is not complete without photographing this wonderful family.  I have captured their family’s love since the beginning. Angela and Mark are magnetic. They pull you in as much as they pull each other in. My heart grows larger when I am around them. They are real. They are strong. Their love endures all. I am so blessed to call them our dear friends. I survived this fall because of these two. Angela was there being my children’s other mom all hours of the day and night. (being injured with 3 boys wasn’t easy for me) I will never be able to thank her enough. I could bubble over for days and days about these two, but I must move on to their vibrant little boys!

Marek: this gorgeous 5 1/2 year old rockstar has a heart as big as Mother Teresa. He pushes every single button and person to the limit (with insane energy for days), but oddly enough it makes you love him even more. He has the fashion and style of a GQ model. I am still clueless on where this comes from. “Heather, you look beautiful, and I love your lipstick color.”- – what other five year old says this? Watch out parents…he will have all your little ladies under his love spell soon enough!!

Maddox: sweet, calm and HILARIOUS (without knowing it) 3 1/2 years old dude. Maddox wants to dance to his own beat, and relax without anyone bugging him. He has an old soul, and just goes with the flow. (most of the time) You can’t help but love Maddox too. His adorable quirks make you want to squeeze him tightly. He is the one to bring you a blanket when you are cold, and the first one to jump into your lap to snuggle every time. Love him!!

As you can probably tell- this family is very special to me, and I am so thankful for them! Their images capture them so perfectly…they truly love this much, and play this much, so I hope everyone can see what I see. And I wish that all of you get to experience a friendship this blessed in 2014 if you haven’t already!!!

Enjoy xo
