It is always a special experience when you get to see a friend from your past. Erin and I have known each other all the way back to the high school days! We laugh at the similarities of our life and how our paths continue to cross even if just for a brief time (we both swam together, both went to LSU, both were a part of the same sorority, and now we are both in the Charlotte area). I was honored that Erin asked me to photograph their first child, Maddie Grace, a little over two years ago and was so happy for them when I heard they were having a little boy!!
Lucky for Erin, Luke made his grand entrance a few days early!! Yall, he might be one of the prettiest baby boys ever! Which is not surprising, I mean look at his parent, these kids hit the jackpot with the good looking genes!!!
These types of sessions are pretty laid back and we just follow the baby's needs. So while Luke was getting his belly full, Maddie Grace, her dad, Thomas, and I, went outside to get a few photos of them as well as play a little soccer! It was so fun to see Maddie Grace outside just having a good time and bonding with her dad! We were able to get a few candid shots that I think really show her personality! Once Erin and Luke were ready, we captured some moments in the living room as well as the presence of a tickle monster to bring out some genuine smiles.
Erin had asked that we take a few photos outside, which of course I was excited about!! So once we were done inside we captured some of my favorite images of the entire session outside in their amazing backyard!
Erin and Thomas, thank you again for letting me into your home to capture your sweet family and beautiful children! Yall are amazing parents and your home is full of some much love! I hope its not another two years before we see each other again!
