As a Charlotte NC family photographer and mama to three little girls, I often get the comment, “You must take pictures of your girls all of the time.” I always surprise everyone when I say I am not as great about taking out my camera to document my girls as they might think!

As I run my business and raise my daughters, I keep telling myself to capture those special moments as they happen. Yet, at the same time, I have to remind myself that they grow so fast, and it is important to stop and take in every smile, every little laugh, every tiny sneeze, and every innocent, inquisitive gaze I can. It is all about balance. In keeping with the tradition of many Moms, I update their images once a year.

It is an investment that we as a family want to make!

These black and white photos of my sweet baby girls are sure to become artwork for our home. We, as a family, want to make that investment each year. I start with a matted album with three images of each girl for our living space. This book series has been a favorite of theirs for the past few years. Albums are some of my favorite products; considering how beautiful they are and how little space they take up, I love to display them! This year we recently moved into a new home. I am working on printing and framing 3 of these images for a space in our hallway upstairs! More to come on that in a future post!

As a mama and Charlotte Family Photographer, I would love to document these yearly childhood portraits for you to enjoy. If you are interested, you can use this link for more information.
