Shaye + Phillip

Lake Norman, NC  Engagement Photography


I really hate that I don’t have more time to write down all the fun I have with each session I do these days, but I promise after the Fall I’ll be back to my normal posts!

Shaye and Phillip are so so adorable, and so so sweet. Small town greatness at its best. They are getting married next May 11th! They were a blast to photograph, and I just know they have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them! And to end it off for the evening, Shaye surprised me with a little gift that seriously made my month– a wine sippy cup 🙂 . She must read minds, or just knows what it’s like with 3 wild boys! Hope you enjoy…

And then there were THREE! Michelle and Mark welcomed their first little man into this world a short 3 months ago, and now are about to move into their first home they’ve built together…lots of firsts for these pretty people! 🙂 Michelle and I actually went to high school together and I’m so glad she contacted me for their photos~ I knew they’d be beautiful, just because they’re beautiful people! We decided to their session in the park within their new neighborhood…love it! Lots of mosquitoes but a beautiful day for photos! Michelle and Mark have a brilliantly fun relationship and I enjoyed every minute with them! Baby Carson is so calm and peaceful…but the moment my camera was near him, his smiles disappeared. (very curious lil man) He has the coolest hair for a newborn too…so many colors. He’ll soon be completely blonde but for now we all get to enjoy his rainbow of colors! Hope you enjoy their peek…

I knew right away I would get along with this pretty blonde…we have the same name!!! Heather and Tyler had been dating for 8 years…and he had her carve their names in a tree out in the woods, write the date too and that moment he proposed. So they took me out to their special tree deep within the forest  where Tyler grew up, very cool. They have such a fun story and I love that he is country and she is (almost) city. Hope you enjoy their engagement session, and look forward to their wedding in September! (my 1 and ONLY wedding I am doing this year!)
