The Sherrill Family

I'm used to more difficult photo shoots than the one I encountered with the Sherrill Family.  I didn't have to chase anyone down or act like a lunatic to get this group to smile.  What a relaxing time we had wandering around Freedom Park looking for the best light of the day.  This sweet family of 4 is about to transition into a family of 5... adding a new son-in-law next year.  Don't you love the shoot in vests, scarves and boots?  This bunch was off to go ice skating afterwards and were ready for adventure.  I love their spunky, fun energy.  To see the rest of the shoot check our their slideshow at:

I've just photographed one of the cutest babies in the whole world,  Ok, so I may be just a teeny bit biased as Hallie is my niece.  But seriously, couldn't you just eat her up?!?!?!  This little one was especially relaxed and let us play (pose) for a really long time.  To see more from our session together check out their slideshow at:

The Sugg Family

I have a special connection with this family.  This beautiful super mom was my personal welcome wagon here in Charlotte.  We had just moved to our new school and I was looking for ways to get connected.  This amazingly welcoming mom was so helpful in giving me a great beginning at our new school and for that I will be forever thankful.
The day we had the shoot was the beginning to some amazing fall days.  I love the colors that show through in their session.  Why, why, why is this season just so short!  I had a great time hanging out with this very good looking bunch, exploring all their special spots, and going down memory lane with cute pics of the past.  If you want to see all of their shoot, check out their slideshow at:  The Sugg Family slideshow

the twer family

The Twer family and I spent an adventurous afternoon exploring the woods in their neighborhood.   This family knew all the best spots to go.  I always like meeting up with families and seeing their relationship in action.  And then sisters.... I love the whole sister relationship and treasure my own sisters.
As we journeyed along, it was sweet to hear this couple's love story and all about their lives.  This super philanthropic family has a great story and a seemingly long history of doing work for others.  Definitely something to admire and aspire to!  Thanks Twer Family for a fun afternoon.

Cora Elisabeth

Freedom Park is always a beautiful place to explore.  And it was sure a fun day exploring it with this young family.  Little Cora was just 2 months old at the time of our session, yet she seemed much more alert and focused than seems typical.  This sweet little one even gave us smiles occasionally.  It was neat meeting with this young couple and hearing their love story.  I truly love the time I get to spend with families... getting to know them, hearing their stories and getting a teeny glimpse into their lives.  Thanks to this sweet family for sharing time with me!

The Nickols Family

This sweet family and I went on a little walk on the creek trail last week.  Their little cutie danced, ran, and led the group on our photo trek.  At almost 2 years old, she has her own sense of style and will certainly make her mark on the world.  Happy birthday, little one!
