The Most Gorgeous Nephews | Fayetteville NC Children Photographer

I had to go meet my newest nephew, born December 9 last year, in Tampa Florida.  He’s just as beautiful as my other gorgeous nephews. Meet sweet Charlie Joe!

And now meet my beautiful sister-in-law, Jacklin–

And my super handsome brother, Brandon

And the most gorgeous kid, my oldest nephew Jackson with the perfect hair–

And Eli–who has the coolest funniest personality ever–

These boys love each other.

Harley | Fayetteville Fort Bragg NC Newborn Baby Photographer

I’ve only been missing in action all year–I have no excuse other than life getting in the way.  Sweet Harley was actually born at the end of 2011, but we can still enjoy his newborn sweetness today.

April 21, 2012 - 11:34 pm Trudie - So lovely. I adore these.

Happy Valentines Day! | Stedman Fayetteville Spring Lake Raeford Children Baby Photographer

I realized the other day how long its been since I even posted a blog–and SO much longer since I have shared my own baby girl Ella.  Of course if you follow me on Facebook, you see her all the time, but I forget how important it is for me to blog her photos.  I love to look back on my Aidan posts and see what he was doing at each time of year.

So today I am making another new year’s resolution–BLOG–but especially blog my sweet babies.  They are growing up before my eyes.

February 14, 2012 - 4:38 pm tamsen - love those grins Carrie! she's so sweet!

February 24, 2012 - 7:37 am CV Love - sO SWEET!

February 26, 2012 - 7:10 pm April Stites - She is so beautiful, Carrie. I enjoy seeing the images you post of her. :)

Some Favorite Newbies | Fayetteville Spring Lake Fort Bragg Newborn Baby Photographer

There is no way I can narrow my favorite newborns into one post, so I’m just going to do two.  I could easily choose 3 favorites from all 80+ sessions this year but that would just take too long.  So here are a few of my very favorites through the year…

January 28, 2012 - 2:07 pm audra bender - really, really beautiful....

February 5, 2012 - 1:54 pm Amanda - Such beautiful work!

February 26, 2012 - 7:10 pm April Stites - Absolutely beautiful work!

May 5, 2012 - 6:43 am Kim Kravitz - Oh My! I'm absolutely in love with the image of the baby in the flag box. Amazing job Carrie!!

Expecting in 2011 | Fayetteville NC Maternity Photographer

Again, it was so very hard to narrow down my favorite 11 maternity photos from 2011.  I always love the outdoor photos, and the silhouettes are my very favorite.  Thank you all you beautiful moms for choosing me to document the happiest (you may not think that at the time) days of your life.  I know when I was pregnant with both of my babies, I was just so excited to meet the new baby and to be COMFY again, that I didn’t take the time to just stop and enjoy the moment like I should have.  These wonderful bellies should remind you to remember that this is a fleeting moment, and its a magical time, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Family Favorites of 2011 | Fayetteville Fort Bragg NC Family Photographer

I’m so behind on blogging, that I’m pretty sure none of these photos have been on this website before–but I loved every single one of them.  Many are families that I have had the pleasure of working with several times, and there is nothing that makes my heart sing more than watching them grow.  I love their family dynamics and the true love that I get to witness when we make time to play for the photos–these are always my favorite.  I love that perfectly posed, everyone smiling shot, but when you catch a glimpse of love and emotion, and true laughter from the children–that’s where the magic is. Here are my favorite family photos of 2011.

1.  This precious family just added a baby girl — and I am fortunate enough to get to photograph her tomorrow.
