PROM 2012 {haley + leo}

May 6, 2012: Mooresville, NC  {LIFESTYLE session}

 

I had so fun photographing this stylish combo. Haley & Leo were way cooler then I was for my proms…that’s for sure. Leo was hilarious and def a GQ model in the making, and Haley is gorgeous & awkward all at the same time- which makes her even more beautiful. I loved that I got to photograph a special day like this for them, they’ll cherish it forever. Enjoy!

 

 

The Shait Family

May 6, 2012: Huntersville, NC  {Lifestyle/Family Session}

 

I cannot believe the Shait Family moved into their new home the day before our photos…there is a small possibility they are crazy! 🙂 Love them though, and so thankful we were able to get our schedules together. Their gorgeous daughter, Havens is so bubbly and smart…very free-spirited. Even though we did an early AM session, it was crazy hot already. Not sure I’m loving the idea of a hot summer anymore! Enjoy their sneak peek…

 

The Thompson Family

May 2, 2012: Denver, NC  {Family Session}

 

Although the weather changed on us quickly yesterday, Brian, Linda, baby Boston and I still managed to finally get together for our first session! Boston will be ONE in August and is so so precious. She was so content and happy the entire time…even with a little rain. She is already standing so strong and my guess is she’ll be an early walker. Beautiful crew…hope you enjoy…

 

The Bahr Family

April 30, 2012: Denver, NC  {Lifestyle / Family Session}

 

Capturing the Bahr family was an absolute blast for me…we hung out, chatted and played around. Chris and Mai-Lis have two absolutely stunning children (THE OBVIOUS) but they are the most fun kiddos ever. Makes me super excited for when my 3 amigos grow to be those ages. Mai-Lis is one of the designers/owners of Addie & Ella so I have worked with her before and Addie too…but this was way more fun for me this time, I got to actually get to know their family.  Carson is the sweetest and silliest kid I think I’ve ever photographed…I just love him. And well, as you can see Addie will melt your heart as well. I just adore that their beauty isn’t just skin deep. They made me laugh and smile the entire time. Hope you enjoy their sneak peek…

 

 

The Long Family

April 29, 2012: Charlotte, NC  {Lifestyle/Family Session}

 

This is one loving family…you can tell how much Cher and Patrick adore their little Zoey. Zoey has grown up so so much since I last did their photos…she would stand and hold onto whatever was put in front of her and barely move a muscle. (minus her big smiles) Now, she is EVERYWHERE…the perfect toddler, running wild and free. I love it. She wouldn’t stay still for one moment all morning. We got to play in the chilly weather at the beautiful church they were married at, making memories. 🙂 I had a blast with the Longs and love watching Zoey grow into Zoey! Enjoy their sneak peek…

 

Ella & Kate

April 22. 2012: Belmont, NC  {LIFESTYLE session}

 

I think I keep repeating myself lately about how much I LOVE what I do…but really, I adore it. I love spending fun time with all these wonderful friends. I love that I make people smile, and I love that I capture a moment that will most likely never happen again. Silly laughs, faces a toddler makes that are the “look” of this phase in their life…it all makes me happy.

I spent yesterday morning with some of my favorite people…Ella & Kate- and oh, yes, their awesome parents, Matt & Lindsay. Kate just turned 2 and seriously is stunning. Ella is just as beautiful and so fun. We had a blast playing around the lil town & especially my favorite part…playing in this adorable boutique, Jolie- right on main street. Little girls in a boutique is just par for the course! Love them…enjoy their pics!

oh and yes- they are wearing the gorgeous Addie & Ella clothing line!! 🙂
