‘Jellie’ Turns One! Rock Hill Family Photographer | Rock Hill, SC

This first birthday was definitely in my top three for cutest decorated party. Their mom is so good with artsy stuff, and made the banners and the detailed posters herself, as well as the setup in the first image. These sweet girls (Janie & Ellie), together known as ‘Jellie’, are identical twins that were born prematurely. I had the pleasure of photographing their ‘Peanut Butter & ‘Jellie’ themed party. How perfect?! Enjoy a preview into their special day!

Their cakes were giant peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made by a family member. Too cute!

Guests left their thumbprints on this poster which were later made into balloons ‘tied’ to the bicycle!

Toby : Charlotte Birth Photographer | Charlotte, NC

So, how I actually ended up with the pleasure of photographing this sweet little guy is pretty interesting. A fellow photographer who I’ve known for a couple of years now (Julia Laible – Julia Laible Photography) had been booked to capture Toby’s birth. On the night of July 13th, I got a message from Julia; she was in a bit of a panic, as she was out of town in West Virginia and had just been informed that Toby was on his way. A whole month early to be exact! What are the odds he would come on the couple of days she would go out of town? But that’s exactly what happened!

She kindly asked me if I would be willing to capture his arrival, knowing she probably wouldn’t make it back to Charlotte in time. I have always admired Julia’s work, so it really meant a lot that she trusted me to do this for her. So a big thanks to Julia for giving me this opportunity. I just love, love capturing birthdays. An amazing experience for sure; there is truly nothing like it!

Please enjoy some of my favorites from Toby’s arrival. 🙂
