Life as Art Check out some of Charlotte's cutest families, babies, kids and pets on my photo blog. Take a look

Really fun newborn shoot with two mamas

I first met this family when I worked on little G’s 18 month portraits, a couple of years ago. They ended up being some of my favorite photos of all time and all over my website. I couldn’t get over her little cupid’s bow mouth and whimsical adorableness. Fast forward two years and I hear that they are expecting again and want me to document their growing family! I was so curious if there would be a boy added to the mix, as it had been 3 girls! And…. it’s a boy! And what a darling boy he is too!

Newborn photo shoots tend to take a while, with a lot of feeding breaks and diaper changes and spit ups, so I get to spend some time getting to really know the family. We talked about how it is to have two moms raising children. In some of the more conservative communities in Charlotte, same sex couples are out of the ordinary, and they get inquisitive looks when meeting their neighbors for the first time. But there are huge advantages too… they parent equally with that nurturing sense that two mothers have. They take turns getting up at night, changing diapers, caring for their babies. Of course, I have seen lots of dads that can be just as involved, not to take away from them. They said that the disadvantage for having lesbian mothers, especially for their little boy, is that when he falls in love one day, it may scare his future wife to know that she has two mother in laws… one can be intimidating enough! 🙂

These portraits are full of love and openess that their family embodies. My favorite photos are the ones of big sister G with her baby brother. How she holds him, looks at him. She is so gentle with him and absolutely adores him. Each time I sat down to edit these photos, I couldn’t help but smile.

THANK YOU S and V for having me document your beautiful, growing family.

Commercial Photo Shoot with Bella Tunno

There is another side to Becca Bond Photography besides the family/ baby/ maternity work that I do. There is also a commercial side to my photography business, and gives me a lot of joy in different ways. The family stuff is the heart and soul of BBP, but the commercial work gives me the chance to be creative in a way where I am collaborating with various businesses. It’s interesting because not many people know that I got my start as a commercial photographer. After college, I lived in NYC and worked with a photographer there that mainly shot child and baby commercial and editorial fashion. I still have some old magazines where my work was published (Earnshaws.. back when I had my maiden name of Price 😉 So… I picked up a lot of tricks from working with kids and babies on our shoots and also how to properly light products for photography.

One of the businesses that I have been working with for the past 3 years is Bella Tunno. We shoot their spring catalogue in the fall and fall catalogue in the spring each year. They are based out of Charlotte, Matthews actually, but their products go all over the country, and beyond. Their style is bright, colorful and clean and a little bit sassy. During our shoot weeks, we usually spend one or two days just shooting products, and then photographing models! It is SO much fun!! The women of Bella Tunno are creative, smart, and I feel like we make such a great team as we collaborate on shoots together. Sometimes photographing 15 or so babies in one day is exhausting, but the great thing is, if one of them is upset, we can replace that baby with a happy one until he or she calms down! I wish I could do that with my own kid sometimes!

Over the years, I’ve grown to really admire the company, and their mission. Not only are their products well made and high end and a joy to work with, but their mission is one that I am so proud to be a part of. For every item that they sell, they donate a meal to a child in need. They have generated over 880,000 meals. I have heard the owner’s story, and it is so inspiring and made me love them even more.

Anyway, here are some of the MANY great photos from our Fall 2017 shoot. How adorable are these babies?! We had a super easy shoot this time, all the babies that we worked with were so happy and easy to photograph. And ADORABLE!!!!!

N Family Welcomes Their Second Baby

It feels like just yesterday that I was at this family’s home to photograph their first baby. Her pictures were absolutely beautiful and now decorating the walls of their home! The family moved away and happily came back to Charlotte just in time for the arrival of their second bundle of cuteness. You may recognize their dog from some other photos on my website!

We had a sweet photo shoot, little E is an adorable child with her ringlet curls and contagious smile. As soon as I arrived, she grabbed my hand and started showing me around… true Southern hospitality, even for a little girl 🙂 She loves her little brother and I had no problem getting her to pose for pictures with him.

Baby A is absolutely perfect with his chubby cheeks and dimples… a perfect baby boy that melts hearts and makes this photographer swoon! The whole family is in love with him and it’s easy to see why.

I am excited to share their photos. I love how natural the family photos are, and the dog’s expressions crack me up!

Thank you N family for having me document this special time in your lives.

Charlotte Baby Photographer

Hello friends….

I was SO excited when I got the news that this mom was expecting again and she wanted me to be her newborn’s photographer! Her family is one of my most favorite families that I work with. They are warm, peaceful, and joyful, and I just feel so comfortable when I am around them, like I am part of their family. The two older kids are sweet and sensitive, with personalities that are uniquely theirs. I love how the brothers are friends, so different yet have the common bond of Family which will always keep them close.

When I first met this family, mama was pregnant with her first (now 4 years old.. how can it be?!). And then I got to meet his little brother when he was born. It’s funny to watch parents go from their first baby “how do we do this parenting thing?!” to their third “we’ve got this down by now!”.

L family it has been such a joy to document your family as you grow. I look forward to working with you as your boys grow up together.

New Website Launched

Hi friends…. I am SO excited to share my new Becca Bond Photography website with the world!!! It has been a loooonnnnnggg time in development. Can I just say hours… days…. weeks… months spent tweaking and figuring out website coding (no easy feat for a creative minded photographer). I have had some help from friends, some late night sessions navigating rows and columns and finally…. FINALLY…. FINALLY… the results are in!

I hope that you all enjoy the new site as much as I do. I feel like it conveys the style of my photography… organic, lifestyle portrait with a journalistic touch.

Please email me or comment with any feedback that you feel would make it even more magical!

Thank you SO much!
