Olivia Turns Two

As I look back on a few of my past sessions and catch up with my blog, I can’t believe I never shared with you all Olivia’s 2nd Birthday Session!  This was back in July…oops!! I loved spending time with this family and Olivia is just so precious.  It was hot and humid but that didn’t stop us from having a wonderful time.  I absolutely love everything about this session!  Enjoy!

Vivian + Dennis | Maternity Session

I met Vivian what seems like yesterday but has actually been a little over 4 years ago.  We met in Charlotte, NC through her best friend Janet and here we are together again capturing a special moment for her and her hubby.  Vivian & Dennis are expecting a beautiful baby girl and I’m so happy for them!  What a blessing :) I wish them nothing but health and happiness.  Can’t wait to meet Stella!

Erica + Brad | Baby # 2

When Erica emailed me that she was expecting baby # 2 and wanted to book a Maternity & Newborn Session I was so excited! I can’t believe it’s been a little over a year since I took Erica & Brad’s Maternity Session while they were expecting Cayden. I also had the pleasure of doing Cayden’s Newborn Session, you can check it out here.  Now he’s been promoted to Big Brother! I love to grow with each family and share these special milestones with them.  Can’t wait to meet Kinsley!  Here are a few of my favorite shots from their Session.

Where I am Today

I wanted to do something to document this milestone in my business and life.  Something to remember how far I’ve come.  The last two years have been one of the most amazing yet challenging years of my life.  First, I would like to Thank All my clients, fans and anyone close to me who has cheered me on and been a part of my journey. I really couldn’t have done alone.  By choosing me as your photographer, you’re making this girls dreams come true!  I encourage everyone to stop being afraid of the unknown and follow your dreams, whatever it is.   I know it’s not easy, believe me it took me a long time to find the courage but I did.  And I haven’t looked back ever since.  As I sip my coffee in my new studio space I can’t help but smile.  The ups and downs, the struggles and the days I felt like giving up were all worth it.  I am nowhere near where I want to be but I know with time I will get there.

I want to remember this moment, these accomplishment of almost 7 years in the business in October.
• 2 years as a full-time photographer
• My work Published 3 times and 2 more accepted, coming out in fall.
• New Studio space (photos coming soon)

What better way to document this moment then having a personal photo session. Let me tell you being on the other side of the camera is nerve wrecking!  Yesterday, Monday September 15 with the help of two awesome, talented friends Lulu & Renata I stepped out of my comfort zone and in front of a camera.   I’m so use to being behind the lens that I felt a little awkward and silly.  If you know me personally, you know for me to sit still for any period of time is merely impossible.  I always tell Renata when she’s going to work with me “Are you ready for me”? LOL.  Oh the things us girls have to go through to look good.

As soon as we started shooting, all the tips I give my clients went out the door! Thank God for Lulu and her spunky personality she made it fun and easy for me.  We drove around for a few minutes, found two spots and just started having fun.  I must say it felt kinda nice to let loose and just relax.  I hope a few years from now I can look back at these photos and remember where I started.  No matter how many times someone compliments my work, I get all giggly inside like a kid.  It will never get old that people continue to enjoy my work as much as I love creating it.  I want to encourage my daughter Leah and anyone reading this to follow their dreams.  Be who you want to be and live life to the fullest.  Be kind to others and work hard for what you want! Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t do something.  Surround yourself with positive people who make you want to be a better person.
