Love this family | Lake Norman : Davidson Family Photographer

It is truly a privilege for me to watch families grow, and I was so excited to have my third session with this wonderful family! On my first session with them, they made me strawberry pancakes. Seriously. That's just how sweet they are!

This is cute Miss A.

You can see last year's session here and A's newborn session here. She's always had gorgeous hair!

This is her handsome brother M.


I am digging this sunflare!

It's a girl! | Lake Norman : Davidson Newborn Photographer

It's official: The first part of the year was for newborn boys, and the second half is for newborn girls!

Meet little E! We got some cute detail shots of all those tiny little parts that change so quickly.

Little toes!

I love how she's holding her hair here! I can see her twirling her hair when she's a toddler!

Baby yawns are the best - I love them!

Thanks, S! Congratulations!

No, you don't have to be part of it to give, but it increases the sense of a global community.

And since I can't post without an image, here is a friendly face from the Riverbanks Zoo.

Baby Girl! | Lake Norman : Statesville Newborn Photographer

Little Miss M is here! She is my second newborn girl all year! Yes, all year! Lots and lots of boys!

Big brother C is so, so cute with her! Thanks again, E & J! Congratulations!

Thanks to The Bean Head Boutique for the adorable hat!

A silly one! | Lake Norman : Davidson Pregnancy Photographer

S and I had fun at her maternity session! We both thought this one was so funny!
She is actually so tiny, though!

Aren't K & G the cutest?

Fun Session! | Lake Norman Family Photographer

These siblings got together for a birthday gift for their dad! We had a great time! Thanks, guys!

Thank you, L, for an awesome session!

Touch A Truck!

We had such a great time at Touch A Truck today! What a wonderful cause!

I'm kicking off my fall promotion in honor of Addi's Cure and Touch A Truck! I'm making it effective September 1,
so call or email if your session was at the beginning of September!

As we were leaving Touch A Truck, my guys and I were talking about how all the people there were helping raise money for lung cancer research. Most of you know that my father has lung cancer. My eldest said, "Maybe, just maybe, they'll figure something out quickly and Poppy can be one of the first ones to get it." My youngest answered, "Yeah, that would be awesome!"
My heart broke and swelled at the same time. This is such a worthy cause.

Another ring favorite! | Lake Norman Wedding Photographer

I love ring shots!
This one is tied with the reflection from Jenny and Sam's reception as my favorite.

Jenny + Sam | Lake Norman Wedding Photographer

Jenny and Sam had a beautiful reception. Here are a few of my favorite detail shots.

They were viewing their slideshow here. I loved watching them interact!

Thanks for sharing your day with me!

Watermelon Swirls

I had never seen a yellow watermelon before I cut into this one, so imagine my surprise when I saw these lovely swirls!
That's my kind of melon! (It was tasty, too!) Thank you, Southland Produce!
