Jonas is one! | Charlotte Family Photographer

You guys – I’m so incredibly late on this post, but hey, life is life and it doesn’t mean I love these peeps any less.  In fact, they’re still some of my faves.  I miss them tons and tons and tons.  Now that I’m actually posting, Jonas is about 1 year and 4 months old (aka I’m four months late)!  Can you believe he used to be this little???  Ahh he’s sooo squishy now.  Anywho, I won’t go on and on because by this point everyone knows how obsessed I am with this family.  I hope you enjoy!


Miss Anna is six months! | Family Photographer

Miss Anna was turning six months in these photos (as a newbie here!).  I’m so late on posting them, I’m sure she’s about to get her driver’s permit.  But seriously, can you handle the cuteness???  Alex, her old brother, is every bit of a two year old boy.  Can you blame him?  Enjoy!


JJ & C-Bear | Charlotte Family Photographer

You guys – C-Bear has a baby bro – JJ!!  Just when she couldn’t get any cuter, I got to see her helping taking care of baby brother.  When I think back on the fact that I’ve been there for every big moment of this family’s life (most recently when JJ was still a bump) I am incredibly grateful.  I can’t say it any other way.  This family rocks my world.  Like real deal.  xoxo


Isabelle’s Senior Portraits | Charlotte Senior Pictures

This family and this girl are the best.  I’ve known Isabelle’s parents for a little bit now and they’re some seriously great human beings.  Like really seriously.  This was actually the first time I got to spend time with Isabelle and I could not get over how stunning she is, both inside and out.  Myself, her mom (Sammy) and Isabelle, spent an evening at McDowell Nature Preserve to snap portraits of this beautiful, easy going, confident, goal oriented, lovely, young lady.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!


Carl Fam | Charlotte Family Photographer

I’m extremely late posting about this awesome family b/c woah it’s busy town over here.  However, this isn’t the first time this family has been on the blog, but now they’re up two boys.  Since I met Libby, I’m pretty sure I’ve had a girl crush on her, then she started her amazing blog, and my intuition was solidified.  Girl crush, check.

Clearly I’m biased, but I really love these pictures.  To me, they represent all the things I love about this family.  They just seem to simply be at ease in their family and are just really great at letting each person in the family be themselves and really just BE in general.  If you know them, you know what I’m talking about.  If you don’t know them, start following Libby’s blog and get to know them, because, well, you’re missing out.

The only thing I’m bummed about with these pictures is the fact that I didn’t get a picture of the boys running.  These boys blew off some SERIOUS steam running from the camera the first 20 minutes or so and it was definitely entertaining.  I’m pretty sure I got tired just by watching.  They obviously warmed up at some point because we got some amazing shots.  Libby texted me after the shoot to tell me Brooks (the oldest) told her he was running in the beginning “because I never had my picture taken like that before and I was scared and then I realized it was ok”.  Melt.

Enjoy these silly boys and their awesome parents!


Baby Girl A-Coming! | Charlotte Maternity Photographer

The Tvedt’s are over the moon to be welcoming baby girl Emerson to their family.  They met me on an EARLY and HOT morning at Anne Springs Close Greenway to catch the most beautiful light.  While I definitely felt bad making Terra walk so much, I think you’ll agree the walking was worth it for these beauties.  Just look at how beautiful big sister Reese is in every shot!  I can’t wait to meet this sweet new baby girl and watch as their family changes in the best way!


Baby Nelson Part Deux

Miss C-Bear, the cutest squish ever (seen here when she turned one), is JUST shy of two AND has a new baby sibling on the way!  The Nelsons are some of my absolute faves to photograph since I’ve seen them through all of life’s beautiful events, starting with this over five years ago!  It’s simply the best.  They did not disappoint in these family / maternity photos either.  Claire’s curls are so delicious.  Literally cannot believe there’s going to be a second little squish coming out with the Nelson / Maloney cute gene combo soon.  Swoon.  For now, I’ll wait patiently.  Hopefully you can too!
