As a Charlotte NC baby photographer I get to work with amazing mamas every year as they grow their families. Whether they have their first baby or have been blessed with another little cutie.

This sweet mama featured below has two beautiful girls. Mama had a session at her house when her first child was still a newborn. She informed me that her “greatest regret” was skipping another newborn session when baby number two was due. So she made the decision to have a six-month session in order to preserve these memories for her daughter.

The best thing about this studio milestone session was that mama was able to spend a whole hour just bonding and enjoying the sweetest baby girl. There were no interruptions, no distractions, just lots of cuddles, hugs, and kisses. We couldn’t have asked for a better session.

Whether you are expecting or know someone who is, I encourage you to learn more about my Baby’s First Year Collective Membership. This allows you to document a full year of milestone moments, including, maternity, newborn, 6 months, and 1 yr year. These are the special moments that, as busy mamas, we don’t want to miss or regret not documenting.
