Amy Clontz|Maternity|McGalliard Falls, Valdese

This family is so special to us! Phillip is Michael’s cousin and he was just a little boy when Michael and I got married.  Now,  he has a beautiful wife, Amy, and they have a growing family of their own! They have a beautiful little girl, Kaylee, and are expecting a baby boy very soon.   Kaylee can’t wait to be a big sister.  She already loves her baby brother so much!  You can see in these photos, she is just a sweetheart!! She takes dance, and when they were walking, she would point her toes just like she would in dance class.  It cracked me up, it was just the cutest thing ever!   2019-09-10_00292019-09-10_00092019-09-10_00252019-09-10_00342019-09-10_00332019-09-10_00242019-09-10_00262019-09-10_00302019-09-10_00312019-09-10_00232019-09-10_00322019-09-10_00202019-09-10_00282019-09-10_00222019-09-10_00212019-09-10_00162019-09-10_00182019-09-10_00082019-09-10_00042019-09-10_00192019-09-10_00112019-09-10_00062019-09-10_00172019-09-10_00142019-09-10_00032019-09-10_00012019-09-10_00132019-09-10_00102019-09-10_0002Phillip, we are so proud of you and Amy and think you are amazing parents.  Best wishes to you on your new addition!  We can’t wait to meet him!

Jamie Adams|Maternity| Marion, NC

Jamie and Garrett were high school sweethearts and are now expecting their first baby, a little girl, next week.  Garrett’s family has a campground in Marion with a pond and River and Jamie thought that would be the perfect place for her maternity session.  I love when I get to shoot at a location that means something special to a couple or family.  This campground has been a part of Garret’s family for many years and I am sure they will have many happy memories in the future as they watch their little girl grow up playing here every summer.  I loved how this session turned out!  You would never know their were camper trailers around!  And Jamie, you look stunning!

Derrick and Amanda|Maternity Session| McGalliard Falls, Valdese

Amanda and Derrick are expecting their second child, a baby girl named Ava.  Ava will be loved so much by her parents and her big brother, Isaiah! Isaiah is usually all smiles and so funny but he was very serious and curious about my camera during our session.  I still love the images of him.  He has the most beautiful eyes!!!    Amanda is Michael’s cousin, so we are very excited to welcome this little girl to our family.  Amanda was a flower girl in our wedding 21 years ago and soon she will be a mom of two!  She is beautiful inside and out, easy going, patient and kind.  I just love her so much! We did her session at McGalliard Falls in Valdese.

Lauren Little|Maternity Session| Hickory, NC

Lauren and Josh ROCKED their maternity session!  I loved this session so much that I dindn’t want it to end.  Lauren and Josh are having a little girl, her name is Charley Jean.  I just love it!  She is being named after her Lauren’s grandmother.  Charley Jean is such a wonderful southern name.  Lauren and I used to work together and so I have heard all about Josh but this was my first time meeting him. He was hilarious and we all had so much fun! You can see the joy they share in these pictures and that is like my favorite thing ever!   Lauren and I talked quite a bit before her session about locations and posing ideas and how awkward she feels getting pictures made.   I agree it can feel very awkward but it can also be so much fun if you just have the right attitude and just go with it and that is exactly what they did.  Their session was perfect! 2019-07-19_01932019-07-19_02002019-07-19_01962019-07-19_02042019-07-19_02032019-07-19_01952019-07-19_01922019-07-19_01882019-07-19_0189My favorite from their session!  So Sweet. 2019-07-19_01822019-07-19_01812019-07-19_01832019-07-19_01682019-07-19_01802019-07-19_01732019-07-19_01792019-07-19_01752019-07-19_01762019-07-19_01702019-07-19_01672019-07-19_01722019-07-19_01662019-07-19_01602019-07-19_0164Another one of my  favorites!
