Summer Nights

I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer evening than with this crew! We had a gorgeous evening for our photo shoot, and these kiddos were super fun to work with! I knew it was going to be a great photography session when they totally got me with one of their jokes right out of the gate! Usually it’s the other way around. The best photo sessions are the ones where I can really let the children be themselves, and I think we accomplished that mission. From telling jokes, to playing hot potato, sardines wrapped in my blanket and a grand finale with both the Pledge of Allegiance and a rendition of “My Country, Tis of Thee”, I would have to say that being a children’s photographer is one of the best jobs there is!


Spring Break 2014 {Sea Pines Hilton Head Beach Family Photographer}

Our family loves to get away and head to the beach! After such a cold and dreary winter in Charlotte, we were so ready to head out of town for Spring Break to one of our favorite vacation spots, Sea Pines in Hilton Head South Carolina. I absolutely treasure time away with my family. With both Brandon and I owning our own businesses, the work never goes away unless we just get away! We both love to work hard and rest well. Soaking up the sunshine, breathing the fresh salty air and just having fun with my kiddos was the perfect way to get recharged for the busy season ahead.

Madison Lane Photography will be offering beach sessions this year in both Bethany Beach, DE {June} and Sea Pines/Hilton Head {August, and possibly July}. We will have an official announcement soon. In the meantime, check out some of the fun I had with my kiddos one evening at the Sea Pines Beach Club!

this kid cracks me up ALL.THE.TIME.
lashes and a sandy nose, could not love anything more about this image!






Wonderful Parade {Charlotte Matilda Jane Clothing Photographer}


Here in Charlotte, I am hoping I can say that Spring is officially here! That being said, we are excitedly transitioning wardrobes in our home. As always, Matilda Jane Clothing is pretty much a staple in my two year old’s closet. If you are a regular around here, you know that we are pretty much obsessed with Matilda Jane Clothing.

It’s a Wonderful Parade is Matilda Jane’s latest release for this Spring, and to say that I love this particular Spring Collection is an understatement. We’ve already purchased a number of pieces for Easter, beach pictures, strawberry picking and just for fun!

This set featured here on my blog tonight is perfect for that transitional wardrobe, where you are ready for warmer weather, but it’s still a little chilly in the morning at preschool drop off . My little girl is wearing the Sweetheart Leggings, Cloudy Puffer Tee, and Love Bug Knot Top. When it warms up this summer, we will ditch the puffer tee and create a different look!

If you are interested in placing an order, we host a Spring and Fall trunk show! Or if you just can’t wait {which we completely understand!} contact Charlotte’s local trunk keeper Jamie, she is AMAZING!
