Maddox Family { Fort Mill, SC Family Photographer}

I can’t even explain how special it was to document this sweet family. This was the first time they had professional pictures done…..And they chose me!!! To put the icing on the cake, they were referred to me by another client and hadn’t even taken a look at my work or website before booking their session. Wow! What a compliment:)From the moment we introduced ourselves in the parking lot I just knew we were going to have a great time together. Although big sis didn’t want to take off her bandaid “AKA” sticker during the whole session, I must have won her over because it was my present at the end of the session:)

Nicholas is 3 months {Charlotte, NC Baby Photographer}

I can’t believe sweet little “Nicky” as his mommy and daddy would say, is 3 months old! He already has a big personality, he laughs, smiles and coos when you talk to him, he’s pushing up like a champ, he’s fascinated by his hand and he thinks the world of his big brother. If you don’t remember this handsome little boy with his big blue eyes and full head of hair from a few months ago when I was in his home for his newborn session make sure to see how much he has changed.

Wouldn’t you agree that in the middle picture above, Nicholas is trying to tell me how much he loves his photographer!

It’s A Boy! {Sorrento, FL Family Photographer}

Last weekend I got to take a “business trip” to Florida to photograph a beautiful wedding with Katie Zamot Photography on Saturday and then document Katie’s Gender Reveal Brunch on Sunday! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun we had last weekend. And to start…. I got to fly on a plane all by myself! Yes, I missed my hubby and kiddos while I was gone but it definitely felt like a mini vacation:)From dinners at Outback (yes, we had it twice in one weekend), a trip to Babies-R-Us to find her the perfect pregnancy pillow- “The Snoogle” and laughing so hard we almost peed when we found the cutest mouse holding a blanket lovie (make sure to follow me on instagram @ jamielea to see all the cuteness), a run into CVS for snacks (yes they still make SPAM….no we did not get it!), wardrobe malfunctions, a trip through McDonald’s drive-through to try their iced coffee for the first time and just good ole quality time with a friend who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

Zamot Family, thank you for having me be a part of this very exciting day! I couldn’t be happier for you guys:)

Rivers {Charlotte, NC Lifestyle Photographer}

It’s such an honor when a family choses me to document their child’s first year and be present to share all these special moments with. Lucky for me, this is my third time photographing this sweet face! I’ve loved watching him grow over the last 7 months and it’s so neat to see his cute little personality developing. I can’t wait to see him again for his 1st birthday session!!

Make sure not to miss the pics of Rivers with his pups at the end of the shoot!

Annabel is TWO! {Fort Mill, SC Family Photographer}

It was such a joy to watch these three together. Each family has special little things they do and one of Annabel’s favorite was finding the “tickle monster” tucked away in her mommy’s hand. I just loved the pure anticipation of opening her mommy’s hand every time and knowing what was going to come next. It was seriously so cute to watch and made her giggle every time.

And Bunny never left her side. I must say that I don’t usually use props during my sessions, but I absolutely love when a child holds something this near and dear to their heart so I loved the idea of letting Annabel bring her special bunny to the shoot. Documenting this stage in a child’s life is so important because it can change so quickly. Before you know it they will be interested in so many new things so why not capture this special love.
