Josie Rose - Charlotte Children's Photographer

I think we can all agree that there's just something magical about new life.  The possibilities, the future, what she'll be when she grows up, the list goes on and on.  I met little Miss Josie Rose yesterday morning and it was such a blessing to be around such a sweet baby girl.  We were rained out of the second half of our session so we're meeting again next week to finish with some outdoor shots.  Nick & Amber, thank you for having me in your home and trusting me to capture your sweet baby girl.  Congratulations times a million on your new little bean and I'll see you all in a week!  I hope you love these as much as I do....

The {Super Duper Hilarious} Bellina Family - Charlotte Family Photographer

Last Sunday morning, 7 AM to be exact, I met up with the Bellinas at one of my favorite places- Latta Plantation.  The light wasn't exactly what I was hoping for at first since there was some cloud coverage and it was pretty chilly but we made the best of it for sure!  I had such a blast with these four, I was seriously laughing the whole time.  Logan and Lila were beyond entertaining and such good sports even though poor Lila was freezing!

Danny and Sarah, thank you both so much for trusting me enough to come out soooo early on a Sunday!  I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!

Aiden's REALLY BIG Day - Huntersville Children's Photographer

Aiden turned ONE last week!  I can't believe how fast time flies, I know I know, I sound like such a broken record but I just cannot get over it.  Aiden's parents have given me the privilege of photographing their sweet boy time and time again and I can't thank them enough for continuing to choose me.  I've had such a fun time getting to know the whole family over the last year!

Last Saturday, Aiden was baptized and it was the sweetest occasion I think I've ever witnessed.  George and Jodi asked me to be there to capture this special day and I am so glad they did, it was awesome to be invited to such an intimate moment.  I've posted all of the photos from this portion of the day in black and white because they capture the innocence and simplicity of the affair.... and they're my favorites and it's my blog.  :)

After the baptism Aiden went home for a much needed nap before his birthday bash that started later in the day.  I was there to capture the party as well and it was a blast- up until an unnamed incident that happened to my own child causing us to depart prematurely- lovely.  Besides that, we had so much fun along with everyone else!

George & Jodi- From the bottom of my heart, thank you both for your kindness and generosity.  You both, and Aiden of course, mean a lot to me and I truly mean that.  Thanks for always being open to my ideas, for always cooperating, and for all of the referrals you've sent my way!  I will be forever grateful.  I hope you'll continue to choose me to document your sweet family!

Love & Hugs,
CJ










This is Aiden's newest cousin, isn't she just so precious??

Greene Family - Charlotte Maternity Photographer

I met Andrew and Lyndsi a few years ago at work.  Lyndsi had just had their first son, sweet Cooper, and I was pregnant with Jonah.  We became fast friends after that since we had endless "baby" issues to discuss.  Lyndsi read all the books and told me what they said.  I am convinced if it wasn't for her I would've had a much more difficult infant.  :)  Thanks, Lyndsi, for playing such an important role in Jonah's first year of life.  You helped me stay sane.

I'm so excited that the Greene family will be welcoming a new baby boy: Easton.  I can't wait to meet him and I hope I'll have the privilege of getting this whole family in front of my camera after he makes his big debut.  Cooper is going to be such a great big brother, I can tell he's so excited for his baby brother (and future wrestling opponent)!

Lyndsi - I hope you love these images of the most amazing time in your life.  You're so blessed to be doing it a second time, and to be looking so fabulous at the same time!!!  Thanks for coming out so early and allowing me the honor to capture your sweet, growing family.

Much Love,
CJ
