The Clark Family | Charlotte Newborn Lifestyle Photography

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is how my career allows me to connect and reconnect with people. This momma and I grew up in Morristown, Tennessee together. I remember lifeguarding at the Morristown Country Club while she ran walked around the pool. Yes, that dates me but it also brings back such good memories.

I was beyond thrilled when she contacted me about a newborn lifestyle photography session in their new Charlotte home. We meet on a warm September morning and utilized spaces both inside and outside of their home including the master bedroom, nursery, guest room and big sister’s room. I love the real life seen in these images – a curious (and adorably silly) big sister, father and son bonding, and a mother with her hands and heart so full. Thank you Clark family for inviting me into your home to document this special time. I can’t believe how fast both of your babies are growing. Seeing them change makes me so so so happy that we have these newborn images to treasure forever. Love you all!
