I think it’s finally safe to say the words…IT’S SPRING!! The beautiful sunshine and warm/hot temps are here for good now!! Yippee!!!! We have all been waiting for this! Especially all of us that work outside, and really don’t enjoy the whole “April showers” thing! Anyways- cheers! With that being said, I’ve been SWAMPED with sessions!! Gorgeous families and kiddies and landscapes, oh my. I hate to hold out sharing with all of you, so in no great order- here are a few moments I’ve gathered this month! (below)

Also- a little housekeeping is hopefully coming along too. *Game plan- update my blog and website. Pray that it actually happens.

Lastly- when I emotionally can handle it, I will share with you all lots and lots of incredible images & memories of my favorite best buddy that passed away a week ago. Cooper was almost 14 years old and we had to say goodbye. He was the most loved and adored french bulldog on the earth. I am 100% sure I’ll never get over him (yes, tears flowing fast even now as I type this) but I hope soon I can honor him on here so you all get a little taste of how special he was to us.


now for the beautiful people. xx

The Johnson Family

Cornelius, NC  Family and Child Photography


Another fun family session went down before we left for the beach…the Johnson family! I mainly focused on the center of their world, one year old Liam! He was hysterical. I absolutely love this age, the blonde hair and blue eyes didn’t hurt either. 😉 He made some fabulous faces and soon his parents will miss those funny faces! Liam and his parents were in town visiting his uncle and aunt- and Grandma came too! We had fun playing by the water on a gorgeous lake norman evening. Hope you enjoy…

The Knag Family

Mooresville, NC  Family Photography


Just want to start off by saying, I seem to be the luckiest photographer in Charlotte…I always get such gorgeous families & children!!! (inside and out!!) The Knag family have 3 precious little girls, 4 year old Kamden, and the two year old twins Kolby, & Kalyon. These girls are stunningly beautiful, but you can see where they got it from! (the apple didn’t fall far from the tree)  We had so much fun running around and dancing the evening away! Kam has photography in her blood too—she got to use my camera twice to show off her skills…I wish I could bring her home with me & teach her to edit too! ha! I love when I instantly connect with families, and this is definitely one of them! Hope you enjoy!! (sorry I am still hiding the Christmas card shots!!)

ps- Jennifer has the best parents (Mimi and Poppy) ever too! I loved meeting them and watching how much their grandbabies ADORE them!!!


The Elliot Family

Cornelius, NC lifestyle photographer

{family lifestyle session}


Love Dana, Rob and lil Clara…and we had fun as usual!!! We ran into a few minor road bumps this session…mainly ticks! YUCK!!! I hate ticks! And so did they! There was also a lovely population of poison ivy covering the entire property, so we were jumping all over the place to avoid it! Clara is 18 months now and is full throttle…wants to go off on adventures and loves her Mommy & Daddy bunches!! Hope you enjoy their photos…
