The Hartley School: A Music Conservatory

As I was preparing to go to Colorado to visit my family this past March, my old friend Marybeth Wood contacted me about doing some non-traditional music photos for her music conservatory, The Hartley School. We had a fabulous time with about ten of her students, with varied ages and instruments, on a sunny day in Broomfield, Colorado. The kids were great sports and really are having fun learning music from Marybeth and her fellow teachers. I’m excited to see what the future of this school holds! If you are looking for a fabulous and fun place to for your kids to learn music, check out The Hartley School.

Anna Grace.Newborn { Charlotte Newborn Photographer }

A couple of weeks ago I got to photograph this beautiful new little person named Anna Grace.  She was amazing and sweet and slept through almost the entire shoot which was great!  I love getting to photograph these babies!  They are so precious and fresh and lovely.  You can see where Anna Grace gets her sweet personality from her mom Michelle, who we managed to snatch a couple of photos with as well.  Without further ado, world, I present Anna Grace.

Team Tutu Time!

Giving a speech?

A truly vintage baby dress, hand made by her great aunt for her grandmother (if I remember correctly) and passed down to her.  Worn by three generations so far. 

Special hand made and treasured gifts.

Anna Grace.Newborn Preview { Charlotte Newborn Photographer }

This week I got to go take pictures of an adorable little new baby girl named Anna Grace.  She and her Momma were very sweet to work with and I think I can truly say that a good time was had by all.  Here’s just a preview to whet your visual appetite!  :)

Trammell Family & Joel Michael’s Six Month Portraits

I got to go home to Colorado for the holidays this year which was quite lovely!  I had several adventures that will be related in subsequent posts.  I also got to have a little reunion with the marvelous Trammell family!  You may remember baby Joel Michael from his newborn portraits that I took back in July.  He has grown and changed quite a bit since then, as babies are apt to do, and his parents wanted to get some family portraits along with 6-month portraits of the little man.  We headed out on what turned out to be a sunny, pretty day in early January and took these around Olde Town Arvada.  Such a treat!  It’s so fun to get to help chronicle the beginning stages in the life of a little human being!  He’s off to a great start!

Cora.Newborn { Charlotte Newborn Photographer }

This is the one of the benefits of being a photographer, I get to go to the homes of precious new families and catch a glimpse of the very beginning of their children’s lives.  What an amazing job!  Sweet little Cora was eight days old already a Daddy’s girl.  I greatly enjoyed meeting and spending an hour getting to know the entire family.

Looking at the camera already!

We had to include the whole family. :)  This is Olivia, the “big sister.”

We took some pictures in the pretty girly nursery.

Griffin Young’s Newborn Portraits ( Charlotte Newborn Photographer)

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of going to Monica & Coby’s home to photograph their new little son Griffin.  Griffin is such an adorable little baby boy and he, along with big sister Stella and their parents, were so much fun to work with!  Without further ado, here’s Griffin!

Love these little fingers and toes!

Pretty big sister!

Clancy Family ( Charlotte Family Photographer )

Right after Thanksgiving I met up with the adorable Clancy family to take some pictures for their Christmas cards.  We went to the Greenway and had a lovely time playing in the leaves, running through the fields, and taking a few “portraits” in between all the playing.  I met Lori earlier through a group at church but I had never met the rest of the family until the day of the shoot and I was delighted to make their acquaintance.  I also appreciated how much easier it is in some ways to take pictures of slightly older children.  I love babies and toddlers but having kids who will hold still for a picture makes my job a lot easier!  Such cute and sweet girls!

You can see that the girls come by their beauty naturally with such good looking parents!

Besties!This was the view as we were leaving.
