|| FEATURE FRIDAY || The Fabulous Snider Family

Last week’s trip to Florida was so. much. fun. But it wasn’t all fun and no work;)

I managed to slip in what turned out to be a fall-out-of-your-chair, gorgeously moody, Christmas-styled session with one of my favorite families on the planet.  My beautiful friend Eva, who is an amazing photographer in her own right and even did some amazing edits on many of these images (I’m running out of adjectives here, geeeez!!) has a knack for pulling things together and this year her family session did NOT dissapoint. We found the coziest corner of woods you ever did see, and with an itty bitty trace of sunlight left, made some magic!

I love when clients have a vision.  I love it even more when we’re able to pull it off!!  In 2015 I plan to share more styled sessions/visions, personal projects and all things creative and inspiring in a new series called FEATURE FRIDAY (happening on Fridays, of course!) So without further adieu, I present to you my very first FEATURE FRIDAY post.  Sniders… you rock my world. A big fat XOXO

Gift Certificates Make Great… GIFTS!

I’m one of those last-minute-Christmas-gals.  I always have been.  And there’s no shame in my game.  My kids tend to go back and forth over what they want, I’m always running like crazy until the week before and I really like to wait to shop until I can do it happily, de-stressed.  So this Saturday I booked an hour and a half massage in the morning, then we booked a babysitter for the evening.  It’s finally time to SHOP… and I’m excited about it!

Anyone else down to the wire?!!  Well, if you’re looking for that last minute gift idea, how about a Hart to Hart Digital Portrait Session Gift Certificate?!!

When you give the gift of a session with Hart to Hart, you’re giving the gift of not only an incredible experience, but tangible memories that will be enjoyed forever.   

The countdown is on!!  A WEEK FROM TODAY!!  XOXO


Another Fall Family Favorite {Charlotte Area Family Photography}

This Fall/Winter has been a whirlwhind!!!  When you’re shooting/editing/premiering this much, there’s not always time to blog everything (which is a little sad… and at this pace I’ll be blogging fall sessions into the spring, ha!) At any rate, I had to share a few of my favorites with the stunning Rose family.  They take the term photogenic to the next level!  And can this little guy rock a warm fuzzy hat or what?!  Thanks Orlinda and Josh for another fabulous session!!  XOXO

My Creamy Dreamy Session with the Snows {Charlotte Area Family Photography}


I can’t think of any other way to start this post then to just come right out and say: I LOVED my session with Snow family!!

How can there be this much gorgeousness (and handsomeness-let’s not leave out those handsome fellas) in one family!??  And let’s not even talk about all that hair!  OR all that amazing sunlight against the golden field that is fast becoming one of my favorite places to shoot at.

Props to Nicole, who did such a great job pulling together the perfectly neutral palate, which can be tough with a crew this size.  I also loved how comfortable, confident and fun each of the kids were in front of the camera!  These guys radiate happiness and beauty from within… hopefully I was able to capture just a taste of that.  Enjoy a few of my favorites… thanks again Snows for a fabulous session, xoxo.

Hedenborg Fall Family Session {Charlotte Area Family Photography}


You would be hard pressed to find two cuter and more agreeable kids when it comes to a family photo session!  Not all kids are up for posing and walking and throwing leaves and running through fields and snuggles with mom and dad and more posing!  But these guys are spot on… their kiddies really love taking pictures and are picture perfect in every way.  This was my 3rd time around with the Hedenborgs, so it’s not just a fluke, haha!  I enjoyed every second… now enjoy a few of my faves.  Thanks Hedeonborg family… already can’t wait for next year. xoxo
