Man. It’s a gorgeous day out today. I really hope Spring has settled in for realz this time! This weather – and this cute little munchkin – have really made my day! :)
What’s this? A baby on my blog?!?!
Before you get too confused or wonder if I’m moving into baby photography, let me explain. :)
My sister came up for a visit on one of the most gorgeous days of the year and we just had to take advantage! She was wanting some pictures of her baby boy, Miller, and I was happy to be of some assistance. :) We literally just walked across the street from my condo and were able to capture some of the beautiful evening light in the newly budding landscape.
I hope you enjoy a quick peek of my sis with my new nephew. They are a lovely pair!!!
This post is quite bittersweet. This trio’s eldest brother, Ansel, was diagnosed with cancer and was only given a few months to live. At 10 years old, for a Dane, Ansel had already had a long and fulfilling life. Rescued and adopted from Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love, Ansel spent the better years of his life in a loving family and even had the opportunity to see his 2-legged human brother born. Unfortunately, Ansel gained his angel wings on Sunday – just days after our session.
I don’t want this post to be all sad and bring you down (even though it’s making me tear up). Instead I want to honor Ansel and his sweet family.
Ansel’s family loves Uptown Charlotte so, even though we had our hands full, we went for it! Three people, three dogs, and a baby – haha! We were struggling! Luckily, some friends showed up to lend a helping hand and we were able to capture some fabulous images of Ansel and his sister, Izzy, and brother, Zeke.
This is by far my favorite image of Ansel…
Spring is finally here and I couldn’t be happier! By far, Spring is my favorite time of year to shoot. I just can’t resist the green grass, the array of flowers, the birds chirping, and the warm sunshine. Ahhhhh…just thinking about it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside (especially on a cold, rainy day like today).
The only thing about this Spring is that it showed up a little late this year. Winter had too hard of a grip which proved challenging for Gus and Lucy’s session. Their mom reeeeeeally wanted to have a Spring-looking session but the options were limited. After hours and hours of searching for some green grass or blooming trees (not in a parking lot), I finally made my way down to Fort Mill, SC to check out the peach blossoms. They were on their way out but, luckily, they hung on just long enough for a great session.
The session was focused mostly on Gus, a 6-year-old Maltese/Bichon mix that is the light of his mom’s world. Although she never thought she would have a small, white, fluffy pup, Gus has stolen her heart…
What a gorgeous location! I’m certainly going to keep this location in mind throughout the summer and into next spring. If you’d like to book a session here, just give me a shout. Although there are no longer blossoms on the trees, the beauty continues on.
A huge thanks to Gus and Lucy’s mom for making the journey to our special spot. :)
