My Own | Charlotte NC Children’s Photographers

Most people aren’t thinking about outdoor photo sessions in the winter months, but I absolutely LOVE this time of year to shoot outdoors. The gray and brown tones winters gives us worked perfectly for the color palette I used to style this little session of my own family! My vision was to create a canvas wall display for our newly updated family room filled with lots of whites and gold and gray accents. If my husband would let me, I would live in an all white home with touches of gold!  I searched the Fort Mill area for several days looking for the perfect spot and I’m so glad I found this little gem, it had the most beautiful lighting and everything I was looking for to pull off my artistic vision. The only downside was that I was the photographer and we were racing against the clock before the sun set. Unfortunately, we were unable to get the family shots I was really hoping for, but I’m so glad we walked away with a few that I love of my kiddos!




December Goals 2014

I can’t believe we are about to say goodbye to 2014. This year has been a game changer for me, come back for a 2014 recap post!

I think it’s always good to reflect back and see where you’ve been before dreaming about where you’re going next. Sometimes I can get so focused on the future that I forget to celebrate the big {and small} victories that have happened. After attending Making Things Happen, I was encouraged to post my monthly goals and doing so has really kept me focused. I want to be able to look back at these posts in 5, 10, 15 years and remember all these small victories.

So let me pause for a minute and reflect on some good things that happened in November…..

Attended Making Things Happen, life-changing experience for me and I’m so glad that I did it! Can’t wait to go again!

Lots of encouragement from my cheerleaders, phone conversation with Lara, sweetest Facebook post from Tiffany, unexpected note in the mail from my new friend Carrie, lunch with Elizabeth P, conversations with Kirsten…… heart overflows

Meaningful conversations with clients turned friends

Thanksgiving memories, hanging with the Seegers first thing in the morning, Turkey Trot with them and my parents, Brandon and I in charge of turkey, stuffing and gravy

Annual trip to Blowing Rock to get our Christmas tree with my family and having the Seegers join us, waiting forever to eat at Mellow Mushroom, seeing the parade, hayride to pick out our tree, hot chocolate, attempting to get pics of the kiddos, so much fun!
