What do you get when you take a gorgeous mama-to-be to a beautiful farm just before sunset? MAGIC!

Amy and her husband Josh are expecting their first child, a little boy due in January. Keep an eye on the blog for their little guy's newborn photos once he arrives!

Amy keeps her horses at a nearby farm, so we decided to hold her photo session there so that one of her horses could make a guest appearance in the photos.

Matt, Kristi and Brand New Baby C - Charlotte, NC Newborn Photographer

Remember that gorgeous mama-to-be that I posted a few days ago? Well, guess what? It's a BOY! I was so honored to get the chance to photograph Matt and Kristi's brand new little guy when he was only 7 days old. This was my first newborn shoot and let me tell you, this adorable little man already had a mind of his own!

Evidently I caught Baby C when he was going through a growth spurt, he slept for about 10 minutes and allowed me to get some cute shots of him wrapped up on a blanket that Kristi's grandmother had made for her and her sister when they were little girls. After that, he was up and ready for action! Despite more feedings and super short cat-naps than I could count, he refused to sleep unless either his mom or dad was holding him tight. I think he thought he might miss something! So, we rolled with it and went for more lifestyle type shots. It was a long day for everyone, but I was really pleased with the emotion that was captured in the photos of this beautiful family.

And that wide-awake little guy was deep asleep 10 minutes after I left...

Kristi's sister is a close friend of mine, so I was happy to get a few shots of baby C with his very excited twin cousins, as well.

I did a session with a wonderful family just as the leaves were starting to turn. Their little girl had some of the most beautiful, sparkling brown eyes I have ever seen!

We had this amazing field of yellow flowers across the street and my "little model" and I took some time one day to check it out!

While the flowers weren't too fantastic for my seasonal allergies, they made a great photo backdrop and a certain little boy thought they were great to run through and shake around.

Merry Christmas to all!

Now that I got my very belated Halloween post out of the way...

I can wish a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! I hope you had a wonderful holiday filled with love, laughter and lots of photos!

Happy (very belated) Halloween!

I know Christmas has already passed, but I've been so busy shooting and editing that I didn't get a chance to post on the Speechless blog at Halloween. I just couldn't let the year end without wishing you a Happy (belated) Halloween from myself and a few of the cutest kids I know!

Instead of Christmas in July, how about Halloween in December? :-D

 My little pirate and me... Arrrr, Mateys!

My wonderful neighbor Kim and her two boys!

Kristi - Clover, SC Maternity Photography

Check out this gorgeous Mama-to-be! I had the pleasure of photographing Kristi just before her baby shower and I only wish I looked this fantastic when I was pregnant!

Kristi and her husband decided not to find out if their baby was going to be a boy or a girl. Talk about suspense! Luckily, you won't have to wait nearly as long as their family and friends did to see pictures of their adorable little one. Look for those shortly in a future blog post!

Sorry it's been so long...

Whew! Long time, no post! I've been busy shooting and editing while we had some gorgeous fall weather, and have sadly neglected my blog. I promise to have some new posts for you soon with loads of gorgeous pictures from recent maternity, newborn and family sessions! Good things are coming, just hang in there and I'll be back soon! :-D
