I love these peoples

October 13, 2016

Hi all…. I am convinced this toddler is going to be a photographer when he grows up 🙂  I just have a feeling.  He loves my camera bag and since his six month old shoot has been after it, my lenses and my gear!  When he is a little bit older, I am going to show him how it all works.

I have worked with this family several times and the past three photo shoots were in their beautiful Charlotte home.  This time, we decided to take it outdoors and I am so glad that we did.  Baby A was as they say in the South “wide open”… that means he was all over the place, wanting to explore and run.  Of course running toward the one thing we didn’t want him to run toward– the electric fence!  So we played a lot of distraction games with him which worked out well.

This was a photo shoot where I really went with the flow.  I directed them a little bit, but the best, most juicy and wonderfully expressive portraits came when I just let them be them!  There was very little posing in this shoot.  I just played with Baby A and he responded really well to my camera, giving me so many amazing expressions.

Once again, here is a family that I have watched grow.  It makes me feel so close to these families, like an extended family of my own.  My “phomily”– photography family 🙂

I am so excited to meet the new baby!  These are good people, the world needs more of them so they’re making more!

Thank you H Family!

It’s About Time

September 30, 2016

If you have been visiting my photography blog for a few years, you will definitely recognize this family!  I began making their portraits when their oldest child was a little wee one.  And then she became a big sister.  And they keep growing up, right before my eyes and camera!  It is such a joy to be their photographer.  I love how these girls’ personalities have developed through the years.  We have many memories together, and they are captured in beautiful pictures!

Lake Norman Lifestyle Family Photography

September 12, 2016

This family contacted me about photographing them in their Lake Norman home and told me that they wanted their pictures to have a lifestyle feeling, more candid and relaxed than posed.  Mom also mentioned that they have always wanted a family photo of everyone throwing confetti.  HECK YEAH! They had other Charlotte photographers work in their home and were concerned that the pictures would look similar.  That is the cool thing about photographers… we are all artists and have a different eye for lighting, composition and interact with families in completely different ways.

The shoot went really well.  Baby P was super cooperative and we managed to get lots of really sweet shots of C with his little sister.  The surprise came when we decided that we would try to get their pup in some photos.  They warned me that she was not a well behaved dog for photographers.  I think the stars aligned because we got SO MANY CUTE photos of this dog with his fur-less siblings!  It was amazing!  Photographing dogs is always tricky.  It’s hard to explain to them what you want them to do.  “Not too much tongue… smile with your eyes”… haha!  This pup worked my camera!

There was another really sweet moment where Dad was reading to C in his room and he almost fell asleep!  I was thinking that if he did fall asleep, we could pose him like a newborn and that would have been a first for me!

The whole family was so pleased at the outcome of their photo shoot.  So am I.  Thank you SO much G family….

Adding another branch to the family tree

September 1, 2016

The first time that I photographed this family was after their first daughter’s birth.  I was thrilled to hear that they were expecting another baby and wanted me to be their newborn photographer again.  Each time I work with newborns that have toddler aged siblings, I say a little prayer before the photo shoot.  It can be difficult to get two year olds to cooperate. I do have several tricks that I use (and I am not above bribery when it comes to getting the perfect shot either, and have even resorted to photoshop magic once).  For this photo shoot, no bribery or photoshop magic was necessary!  Big sister was absolutely sweet and cooperative.  We got some of the most beautiful pictures of the sisters together.  It made my heart happy.

When photographing newborn babies with an older sibling, I always feel like it is so important to make the older child feel so important.  I was a big sister once and I know how it feels to have people come and fawn all over the new baby.  I make sure to fuss over them first, and then when the time is appropriate, enlist their “help” in photographing the baby.  They love this!  Sometimes, there are these magical moments when things just really click.  This photo shoot is a perfect example!

Thank you I family 🙂
