Lake Norman Family Portraits | The Glasgow Family

The Glasgow Family

Maureen is the type of mom I strive to be!! Be honest, how many of yall get your Christmas cards out before Thanksgiving?? In her initial message to me she asked if I had availability to take her family photos because she usually gets her Christmas cards out before Thanksgiving!! Those of you that get Christmas cards out or even ordered before Thanksgiving get a gold star in my book!!! I am lucky if I even have a photo of my family together by thanksgiving, let along decide on a card and have it ordered by Christmas, for me, that is winning!!! 

Lake Norman Family Session

Maureen, Art, their two youngest boys, Liam and Riley, and Maureen's mother Kathy, were a dream to work with! The live on Lake Norman and had a beautiful setting next to their home for some evening photos.  We had some concerns on if the weather would hold out (rain was originally in the forecast) and to my pleasure we had a few clouds but the rain stayed away until later that evening!

One of Art's requests was that their two female Australian goodendoodles would be in the photos! These two ladies were full of energy and loved the fall leaves (especially Sadie) which got a few laughs from the family! We were able to get a few photos of the dog which is always fun when you can get the those special family members included!

The one thing that stood out to me the most from this photography session was the love this family has and came through in everything they did! In just the short time I spend with them, you can tell how much these two boys LOVE their mom and would do anything for her!! And it doesn't stop there, Maureen and her mom have such a special bond and can tell they are not only mother and daughter but great friends. Lastly, Maureen and Art, at first Art comes off as the conservative and not a huge talker but I soon realized that he has a goofy side with strategic timing (Ill keep the "supermodel" pose on the blanket in their private gallery, lol). Some of my favorite photos are with the moms and dads during my sessions, it always seems awkward when I tell them to look into each others eyes but you always get some of the best most sincere smiles and you get a glimpse of the love they have for each other and Art and Maureen did not disappoint during these photos!
