ivy | charlotte lifestyle newborn photographer

Pure sweetness.  That’s the only way to describe my new niece.  Welcome to the family, Ivy.  We’re so excited that you joined us—a wonderful “blessing” to my sister and her husband who already have three boys, ages 11, 8, and 6.  Just know, Ivy, that we have a very important rule for all kids in the family: you’re not allowed to grow up too fast.  My own 9-year-old daughter, who literally held Ivy for hours upon meeting her, said to me offhand, “Mom, when Ivy’s my age I’ll be going off to college.”  And if I didn’t start sobbing right there…

the b family | charlotte family photographer

One of my absolute favorite families…In fact, one of my family’s absolute favorite families.  My son would seriously let them adopt him if the option presented itself.  Actually, maybe I would, too.  They’re fun, loving, generous, full of energy, and just a joy to be around.  Not to mention gorgeous.  All of that usually makes my job a piece of cake, but when you’re photographing the family of amazing photographer Brooke Brown, well, it’s easy to overthink things.  Lucky for me, the light was beautiful, the setting was lovely, and the smiles were ready—plus, this crew always makes things fun.
