Lake Norman Engagement/Newborn | Stacey + Josh + Baylor

I love photographing people dear to me. When I first moved to Charlotte, I knew about 3 people here... so basically no one. Fortunately, I was introcued to Stacey through a mutual friend and being the fun loving kind soul Stacey is... she took me in. Knowing my limited social network, she invited me everywhere....boating on Lake Norman, dinner's in Uptown, late nights at Saeed's.... she made it a point to include me because to her it was the kind thing to do and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Fast forward a couple years later and this unbelievable, beautiful, amazing, kind soul found her counterpart. Josh is as fun-loving as the come. His personality is as big as his heart, and I could not be more thrilled for Stacey to have found someone just as amazing as she. Not only are these two perfect for one another, but their perfect relationship got a little sweeter this past Fall when they graced the world with their beautiful daughter, Baylor.  

We planned their engagement/newborn session originally at a nearby cotton farm, but due to the weather... we opted for Jetton Park on Lake Norman. I was somewhat nervous, what with the rain... but as Josh put it upon arrival, "A little rain never hurt anyone", and I knew it would be perfect! 

I'm so honored to have captured these precious moments, and even more thrilled to photograph the three again this December where they plan to marry at the Peninsula Yacht Club.
