This was from a session a while back that missed getting blogged. This little guy with those huge eyes just melts me. Seriously. You cannot get any cuter than this. Beyond adorable. <3

So what do you do when you have adorable twin boys only 15 months following the birth of your beautiful daughter? Go crazy, did you say? Hmmm. Yep. There is probably a bit of that.  But what you really need to do is take pictures! Why? Because of the going crazy part. How else between diaper changing times three and no sleep for what feels like forever will you ever be able to remember these days? Because believe it or not, even though these days may make you feel like you are on some kind of wild amusement park ride  you will want to remember them. They will be gone in a flash and your babies will be grown before you can blink your eyes.  You will want to remember how small and perfect your babies are. How they fit into your arms and your heart like they were specially made for them (and they are).  You will miss these days.  I promise.

I have to say that these are some of the most beautiful babies I have seen.  This was such a perfect session and babies were the easiest twins I have photographed thus far. And before I go on I absolutely must  give a big huge enormous gigantic thank you to Julie of Jellie Beanz Photography for her expert help. No way I could have done this session without her. No way.  Oh and if you want to see big sister’s newborn session that was just a bit over a year ago take a peek here.  Mathis is going to be the best big sister ever. I am amazed at her maturity for being a baby still herself.

Introducing Harrison and Owen. Twin baby boys extraordinaire.  :-)

And what do you do when the posing isn’t perfect but all three babies are in the frame? You click the shutter. You click the shutter now. And then you are just happy that you achieved what you thought would be impossible. A perfectly imperfect image… or two…or three.

Yesterday in North Carolina it felt decidedly like Spring had arrived. Today, not so much. And later this week we have a possibility of a rain/snow mix. So much for Spring weather it seems. But I am sure that it will arrive and soon blossoms will be bursting forth and the birds will sing and the sun will shine and children and dogs will run crazy circles in the yard.  And it will stay around for a while. I promise. So plan now to celebrate that with a mini session. I am offering a 30 minute session (outdoor only) with five digital files (delivered via download), and a release to print to your heart’s content for only $250. This is good for a group of up to 6 persons but does not include the newborn session. Anyone that has been around a newborn session knows that a mini would be impossible. hehe.  This would be great for a family session or a baby or a mommy and me or a maternity session. And dads listen up….mom would love this as a gift. You would be her super hero.  And on the flip side I bet it would make everyone’s heart  happy to have a daddy and me session. Just sayin…
I will be scheduling only a limited amount of these minis….my spring is already quite busy. So don’t delay in reserving your spot now. More fine print:  the $250 fee must be paid for at least two weeks in advance of the session and the session must take place on or before May 15, 2014.  You will be provided with a gallery of at least 10 images from which to choose your five digital files. Location for session will be outdoor and within 15ish miles of Tryon, NC.

So don’t delay. Spring will be here. Really it will. It will. It will. Keep repeating that and carry on.

I am so far behind on blogging that it is ridiculous but I am compelled to post a quick peek of this session of a most adorable and sweet six month old boy. Oh goodness he is so sweet. I don’t believe he cried or fussed at all the entire time. And oh so photogenic with his bright blue eyes, sweet smile and fuzzy blond hair. It was three years ago that I photographed his beautiful older sister when she was about the same age. It is always such fun for me to be able to see my past baby clients as they grow. You can see big sister’s baby session here.  Mom, Dad and Grandparents, I hope you enjoy this little peek at the photos. More to come soon. :-)

I was so happy that fellow photographer friend Julie of Jelliebeanz Photography asked me to assist her with some newborn twins. We had a great time shooting together and snuggling these two sweeties. Brother was impressively bigger than his delicate sister. This first image of the two of them together makes that really clear. Both babies were just so beautiful and I have to admit that I was reluctant to hand them back to mom and dad when the session was over.  Thank you Julie for letting me have fun with you that day!

Typically I am behind in my blogging (like waaay behind) but I think you will forgive me this time after you see some of these images from this beautiful family’s session. Sweet little Mathis Rose is the new addition and mom and dad (grandmas too) are understandably over the moon crazy over her. She is absolutely one thousand percent adorable. No make that  ADORABLE with caps. Really love this baby and this family. In fact I am over the moon crazy about all of them. They are such fun clients.  I had so much fun getting to know them and capturing these images for them. I can’t wait to see them all again when we do Mathis’ six month session.  How much she will have changed during these next months. Enjoy!

As promised here are some images of the newborn session from the maternity that I posted just below. This little baby boy was a special treat for this family after having three beautiful girls. Oh this precious baby is such a doll. You can tell already that he will have big eyes and beautiful features just like his sisters. How blessed this family is….even if they are a bit sleep deprived at the moment.  For the most part we got a lot of this: dsc_4161-bw-web
But thankfully we did get bits of this inbetween all of that.
Being close to his gorgeous mama makes him happy. Can you blame him?
Baby in daddy’s arms and hands are some of my very favorite images to capture. Look how comfortable little Tate is.
Sibling shots with a newborn are some of the most difficult images to capture so this shot here is the icing on the cake. It may be difficult to believe but not more than 10 minutes before this shot these girls were outside riding bikes and playing. They came in all sweaty and looking like they were having fun. Thanks to Aunt Carla who very quickly got them changed and cleaned up and helped settle them into this pose. It helps that these are girls are so sweet and cooperative. Oh goodness what a beautiful little family this is.

This is a combination maternity and family session and is actually the third time I have worked with them. The first was a maternity also. And the second was for the newborn of their youngest girl. I can’t tell you how happy I was when I got an email from mom that she was expecting again (a boy this time after three girls).  They are all so beautiful and so easy to work with that I pretty much did a happy dance to hear the news. This is still a catch up blog post because I am still quite a bit behind. Enjoy the pics and stay tuned because I will be posting some pics from their newborn session very soon too.



Isn’t mom just the most gorgeous pregnant woman?

I am soooooo far behind on blogging that I have to accept that I just won’t get it all done at this point. But I will try to catch up a bit and I just had to post some pics of this little guy. Oh my goodness at just four months old here he could stop traffic with this adorable face. I am so crazy about this cutie pie.  Mom and dad are so blessed to have Micah in their life.  Here are a few of my favorites from this session.

I have always held it against my parents that they never gave me a sister. To this day I am jealous of those that have sisters. I imagined that a sister would be someone that would be closer than a best friend. Someone to share dresses, nail polish and favorite shoes with. Someone that would keep my secrets safe. Having a sister would be like having a slumber party every night. Of course those of you that have sisters will probably tell me that it is nothing like that at all. That there are endless quarrels and jealousy and sharing favorite things was unheard of. Well, just let me have my fantasy, okay? :-) Here are two girls who will surely live up to what my imagination always told me having a sister would be like. I love these two little girls. This is the fourth session that I have had with this family so they have a special place in my heart. This day was soooo very overcast which made shooting a tiny bit challenging. But in the end I think we pulled it off and had a really great time. Mom drove over an hour here and when they were ready to leave we cleaned the girls up and put them in their jammies sure that they would be fast asleep within minutes after getting buckled in. The next day mom told me that they never slept a wink until they got home in their beds. In fact, she said they talked to each other all the way home. See? I told you having a sister is a cool thing.


Big sister was turning six years old so I got six balloons for her. Well, wouldn’t you know it, one of the balloons completely deflated. So just pretend she has six balloons. :-)

Little sister was turning two so she had two pretty pink balloons.


Is it a girl thing or what? The putting our hands on our hips. Totally girl.
