Sisson Sisters Sneak Peek {Charlotte Area Photography}

It’s not every day that I make the time and effort to shoot a project for my portfolio, my website and my brand!! This was a concept I’ve been thinking about shooting for a while now… from the homemade floral headbands, peaches and creamy neutral dresses, hair and make-up (two-toned lips and nails!!!) to shooting in my own backyard… it was so fun to just take full creative and do it all from start to finish.

Portfolio shoots are always a bit of a learning experience… this time ’round I learned that thinking I could do hair and make-up for 5 girls in an hour and a half was a little ambitions, hahaha!  Luckily I had the most amazing models.  The Sisson sisters are truly gracious and gorgeous inside and out!  Thank you girls so much!!  Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot… soon to be debuting on my new website/blog very shortly!  Until then, xoxo

Wendy & Rodrigo of WR Salsa {Life-Style Photography}

Salsa dancing happens to be one of my favorite things.  Combine that with a sizzling shoot featuring two of my favorite people and we’ve got gold!!

Meet Wendy & Rodrigo, who are local celebrities here in Charlotte in their own right! They head up RW Latin Dance (website here) and we go way back!  I had the privilege of helping shoot their wedding several years ago and now this shoot has been years in the making.  Despite drizzly weather and downtown bums, we were still able to pull off a lot of fun looks/locations!  And these two smokin’ hot salsa dancers know how to work the camera!!  I had a blast Wendy & Rodrigo.  Already can’t wait for the next one, XOXO!!

Vanderwalker Family Favorites {Charlotte Area Family Photography}

I’m so FANCY… I already know, I’m in the fast last….

Hahaha!!  I couldn’t resist!  We got fancy this year with the Vanderwalkers.  I have been shooting this gorgeous family for years now and this year we decided to do something a little different.  I don’t always recommend formal wear for an outdoor/rustic type shoot, but something about this all just works and I LOVE it.  Add in the MOST KILLER LIGHT and we’ve got solid gold here!!  Thank you VW family-I had the BEST time shooting you all this year… how are we going to top this?!! XOXO

Baby Ivy’s Newborn Favorites {Charlotte Area Newborn Photography}

Introducing little miss Ivy, Elle’s baby BFF, haha!  Becca, Ivy’s mommy is a great friend of mine and helped me out so much during my pregnancy.  It’s always fun to have someone to go through a pregnancy with… all the aches and pains somehow become a lot more maneagable when someone else is enduring them too!

Today I’m sharing a few favorites from our lovely, laid back session with this lil’ blue eyed beauty!  Can’t wait to see these girls grow up together, XOXO!

Bobbitt Family Session Favorites {Charlotte Area Family Photography}

You may remember my maternity shoot with the beautiful Bobbitt family last summer here!  I was so excited to have the chance to shoot them again this year… seeing a family grow is truly one of my favorite parts of the job!  We had such gorgeous light at the Fort Mill Dairy Barn this particular night… you would’ve never guessed it was 100 degrees, ha!  Their little girls are soooo photogenic, it was hard to narrow my favorites down.  Here’s my attempt at a “few”… until next Summer!! XOXO
