Alison + Brian : Charlotte Couples Photographer

Most of you know that I don't live near my family, so when I get the chance to photograph them, I get so excited! Alison and Brian got married on April 1st (how cool is that!) and had a beautiful reception last weekend.

We started off with a few shots of the newlyweds.

Then, onto the reception!  Gorgeous hydrangeas were everywhere!

Everyone had a great time!

I am seriously crushing on their rings.

Love this one of the Mr. and Mrs.

Charlotte Child Photographer : Hooray for Liam!!

I first met Liam when he was six months old.  And now he is one!  We met up at the Green a little after his first birthday, and he is cuter than ever.  This family has had a difficult and trying journey since November (and 'difficult and trying' don't come close to covering it).  Start here to read Liam's story and then catch up with the cuteness himself on the homepage here.  As you read, you can feel the grace, patience, humor and love they've shown.
I'm beyond thrilled to say that Liam is doing great!!!
And you can also see the adorable baby legs that Mom makes at LCF Threadz.

Thank you, Dawn and Brian!

Concord Newborn Photographer : Sweet Baby Goodness

 There's not really anything to say except...aaaaaawwwwwww.

Thanks again, Mandy!  Congratulations!!

I'd like to dedicate this session to Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, without whom I would have been a mess on this shoot.  It is hot, people!  Crazy hot!  Hot weather, a warm house to keep baby cozy, a photographer crawling around and glasses don't go well together.  I've done it for almost eight years, and my first newborn after my surgery was heaven.  Thank you!
