Hohas Family {Fort Mill, SC Family Photographer}

I’m going to apologize now for the long post, I just had to many favorites that I had to share! This session could not have been more enjoyable. Allison styled their outfits perfectly, the girls were so much fun to work with and since this was the second time I’ve photographed this beautiful family Phoebe already knew what a goofball I was, Lila is just a doll and the love this family shares for one another is just a joy to photograph.

Our 1st Time Blueberry Picking {TLC Blueberry Farm, Monroe, NC}

Last Saturday the kids and I took a little trip out to Monroe, NC to visit TLC Blueberry Farm for the first time and we had such a wonderful time! Their blueberries are locally grown, absolutely delicious (I definitely think my kiddos put more in their mouth then in their bucket…) and pesticide free. They have 5 different varieties of blueberries (had no idea their was more than one), the most delicious homemade blueberry ice cream that I barely got to taste before the kids were licking the bowl, a pond where you can feed ducks, a playground and a chicken coop! Oh one more thing…..their home, which is absolutely beautiful and in the center of it all. The property was so well kept and everything was so neat and clean which you don’t always see when visiting local farms.  The owners, Chris and Lacey are so sweet and the rest of their staff is so welcoming and helpful. One of the teenage boys even sat down at the picnic table with my son to keep him entertained while I paid of our blueberries. We definitely had a great time and can’t wait to go back and pick some more before the season is over.

Baby Nicholas {Charlotte, NC Lifestyle Newborn Photographer}

Just look at the head of hair on this little cutie! The nurses told Dianna that he had more hair than any other baby they had seen.

When I first got to their house, big brother was napping so I was able to spend some time with just the two of them and their new little guy. We talked about all sorts of things from Brian being in a band (which is so cool by the way), adjusting to life with two and crazy babysitters. I’m not sure what it was (possibly being sleep deprived from only being home from the hospital for two nights) but Brain had us laughing almost the whole session. I just love when I can “hang out” with my clients and photograph their beautiful life at the same time.

It took a while for us to get Ben interested in the new little person that had only been in his life for a couple days, but when we did his sweet little personality sure did show and I love the moments we captured.

Can’t wait to watch Nicholas grow over his first year. Keep an eye out for his 3 month session in a few months.

Schoendfelt Family {Charlotte, NC Maternity Photographer}

This sweet family is absolutely adorable together and I couldn’t be more excited for them. Stella…. I could just eat you up! You have the biggest personality and your mommy and daddy love you more than you could ever imagine. I always have a great time photographing this beautiful family because they always have so much fun together and it really shows in every one of their images. When Kate told me that they were moving back to PA, I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to photograph their little one when he/she was born but I’m really happy for them and the new opportunities this move will bring. I wish you guys the best of luck with this new adventure.2014-06-25_0030
