Declan's newborn session + Charlotte, NC

I was lucky enough to photography Courtney & Chase for their maternity shoot at Latta's nature preserve a few weeks ago before their little one came into the world so coming into their home to capture their new life as a family of three felt like seeing old friends (and one tiny new one!) I can't thank them enough for inviting me into their home and being so sweet to me. It's been quite a few weeks since Declan was born and I love keeping up with how much he's growing through the pictures Courtney shares, but here are some of my favorites from when this little Cowboy's fan was just a few days old!

Kennedy & Cameron's Little Italy

Sorry you guys, I couldn't resist the title. I shot this newborn session a few weeks ago and am finally getting around to blogging it. First of all, baby Italy was a dream! I don't do much of the "posed" newborn style shooting but wanted to give it a try since Kennedy was down. for it, and sure enough Italy complied! I was so happy to finally have a sleeping newborn to (attempt) to pose in those cute little ways I always see. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan of the more photojournalistic/lifestyle sessions as I feel it captures life as it is (and as it was) in the most natural way possible, it was really fun to try something new. I have a new respect for newborn photographers that pose those little ones so perfectly, it's hard work!! Thanks to both Kennedy and Cameron for inviting me into their home and letting me capture their memories. Here are my favorites below:
