I had the honor of photographing K and J's wedding almost two years ago, and they have become great friends. Their reception at the Peninsula Club at beautiful Lake Norman, NC is still one of our favorites and produced some gorgeous images!
But as it happens, the wedding is over, the dress is packed away, and the newlyweds have settled into life together. This Spring they welcomed their beautiful baby boy into their family. Baby Liam is first grandchild on either side; something tells me he won't lack for cuddles!
His mommy and daddy brought him to our studio, located in Historic Downtown Statesville, for his newborn photo session. We always try to incorporate something of meaning into the photographs, and for this family, airplanes was definitely it! Liam's grandpa is a pilot, his daddy loves pilot/flying simulation games, and after J mentioned that they would bring K's aviator glasses, the idea was born!
I showed my husband some images of what I wanted for the airplane, and in no time, he had created this gorgeous airplane prop. This series is one of my all time favorites to date. From the airplane, to the baby on the guitar, to mom and dad's shining adoration, to the little puppy, this gallery comes together to create timeless images for this growing family.
