Now and Then : Candy Howard : Lake Norman Child Photographer

I'm doing some archiving
and besides feeling very lucky to be able to document the life of a family, 
I am feeling very nostalgic.

  Exhibit 1:  This is sweet Gracie in 2006.

And then in 2012.  The same sweet girl is now a beautiful young woman.  Sigh.
Some of her big sister coming soon. 

Choose Joy

Today may be hard.  Choose joy.
Today may make you want to stay in bed.  Choose joy.
Today might be telling you to give up.  Choose joy.
Today may feel like no one is on your side.  Choose joy.
And just like that, it is yours.

I still have some left if you want one, and you can get some to share here.

And baby makes six! : Cornelius Family Photographer : Candy Howard

I got to meet Dad and the newest family member for this shoot!
What a fun family!
And they are all so cute!!

After a more traditional family shot, we had fun with a Pinterest idea from Mom!  Love it!
Thank you, thank you, Harringtons!

The Donehoo Family : Mooresville NC Family Photographer : Candy Howard

It was great to see this beautiful family again!
I loved our last session, so I was really excited for this one!
The kids have gotten so big, and mom and dad are as gorgeous as ever.
Once again, I loved their clothing selections - 
coordinated but not matching, nice pops of color and lots of textures!

At the end of our shoot, we shot a few headshots for Jenny, who, if you couldn't tell, is in the skincare industry.  Isn't she lovely!

Thanks so much, Jenny and Brian!
