Sweet baby goodness for Monica : Charlotte Newborn Photographer

This summer, I had the pleasure of seeing a dear high school friend after many, many years. I met her little one, and oh, is he cute!  Fast forward a bit, and she has moved to Hong Kong!  You can read about her adventures here.  It is a very exciting time for her family, but she is missed!  In 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' style, I found out that a friend of hers was going to have baby shortly after the move, and we had a newborn session together!  I have also reconnected with her sister, who I haven't seen in so very long!  Can't wait, Kate!   So, Monica, thank you.  You are missed so much by so many people, but think of all the people you have brought together...the connections made in your absence...people with you as a common bond who might not have known each other if it weren't for you...people who are missing you together and can't wait to see you again!    

For M and C, thank you so much for letting me share this special time.
The first few weeks are magical...and it just gets better.

Without further ado, meet sweet baby L...
I call this "What do you mean I have to wait to meet Monica!?!"
Little thinker!
She is so expressive!
Love this! Hokies good! Hokies bad!
Sweet baby


This week at I ♥ Faces, it's all about hands! I love tiny baby hands almost as much as tiny baby feet. This little guy looked so small in his daddy's hands.  And he latched onto his pop's thumb all on his own!

It's about wonder : Davidson, NC Children's Photographer

F and I had our session before Christmas, and it was like a gift to me. This little guy has his eyes open to everything and every possibility. Such a great reminder about being open to the wonder around us...really seeing what is in front of you. F showed me that it is an attitude, not a something that falls into your lap. Go out and explore. What a gift our world is. Thank you, F and J.  It was an absolute pleasure.

I am head over heels in love with this image.

I Wanna Dance!

It's time to cut a rug over at I Faces!  Sweet L wanted  to dance during her two year session,
so mom put on some music and L didn't miss a beat (literally!!).  She started swinging her head in time
to Choo Choo Soul, and that hair was flying!

Got Candy?

No, not that kind of candy!  It's not too late to give your sweetie what she really wants for Valentine's Day!  A session with me!  She can use it for the two of you, your little ones or a session just for her!

I will send your valentine an email tomorrow morning with her gift certificate!

I met the F family through a friend, and I had so much fun with them. R & J, your kids are just too adorable!
