In home newborn session {Charlotte NC Fort Mill newborn photographer}

I loved meeting and photographing this special family.  I'm beyond blessed to have so many clients that trust me to come into their home to capture their lives during milestone events or even just life as it is at the time because when kiddos are little, they just don't keep.  I really feel the most in my wheelhouse when those families are comfortable being themselves and I can truly just capture the moments as they unfold.  I think it's natural for most people to feel that the best photos will be at a gorgeous location full of tall grass and pretty trees (and I don't totally disagree because god knows I love sun!), but some of my favorite ever sessions take place in clients homes, so I encourage you all to consider an in-home session when thinking about locations for your next family photos...

Sunset family session {Charlotte NC Fort Mill Family Photographer}

When we met for our session back in August, it was as hot as a southern summer night can get.  Momma is a photog and of course she had her gorgeous family looking super amazing and picture ready.  And as any hot summer Charlotte day in August, any movement caused sweat to drip from everyone's foreheads, and as any family with little ones, sitting still is just not an option.  I remember this night vividly, but most importantly for the magic they brought to the session.  The golden hour light was amazing, they were gorgeous and their family chemistry the best.  Excited to share the images from their sunset session!

Yes, it's time to start thinking about fall family photos!

Can you believe it?  School started this week and September is not far off?  Just the other morning I noticed that the 70 degree morning walk to my car seemed to hint at fall- I can't say that I wasn't just a little excited about it either!  I think we've had enough 90+ days to last me for the rest of the year.  Plus, my family still gets to enjoy one more beach vacation before we officially bid adieu to summer here in Charlotte.  Ahh, I think this just may be my favorite time of year!

If you are thinking of scheduling family photos this fall- for Christmas Cards, or just to soak in all of that beautiful rich scenery, now is the time to do it!  Fall is always the busiest time of year for family photographers, and we really aren't kidding when we say spots fill up fast.  It always amazes me how I pack so many sessions into a few short months, but I would be lying if I didn't say that I really love the rush of it.  The lack of sleep... well that's another subject.  But there's always the winter for catching up!

We've got a lot of great locations where the foliage is beautiful.  We also LOVE in-home family photo sessions too where everyone is comfortable.  Shoot us an email, give us a call, or fill out the contact form to reserve your session.  Also, be sure to sign up for our mailing list if you'd like to be notified firsthand of upcoming events and specials.  We look forward to making memories with you!
