Megan and her husband Justin are some of the most down-to-earth genuinely kind folks I know, and they also happen to be AMAZING photographers! Please take a peek at their work here!!

This session was so much fun and a bit different than I typically do for newborns. We focused primarily on the family and the results were beautiful. I truly loved getting to not only capture the newness of their baby girl, but also the connections between the whole family. Its something I hope to do more of with my future newborn sessions! Enjoy the images of this beautiful family!

Recent Happenings... http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2014/8/recent-happenings It's been just over three months since we welcomed our sweet girls into the family! The joys and challenges of parenthood have most certainly been multiplied as we have been learning to navigate our new roles and care for Cora and Avery. It has been so rewarding, challenging, peaceful, and crazy all at the same time. 

The girls each have such unique personalities and traits already and it is so fun to watch them learn and grow each day. I always knew this time would go by fast--photographing other's babies through the first year gave me a pretty good taste of this-- but it has taken on a whole new meaning now that I am living it! Here are some of the highlights of our first 3 months together:

Stella is One! {Huntersville Child Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2014/3/stella-is-one-huntersville-child-photographer I can't believe how quickly one year goes by! I have had the privilege of working with this adorable little munchkin and her momma over the last year, and it has been a blast! I love this session because I think we caught such a wide spectrum of Stella's moods. :)

On another note, I'm so grateful to my clients who have allowed me to test out this set-up in my home this year with no fancy bells or whistles-- just a pushed aside kitchen table, some good music and pretty window light! Though shooting outdoors is my absolute favorite, I would LOVE to have a space in my home set aside just for baby and newborn sessions. Ahhhh…..one day. :)

Little Olivia {Cornelius Newborn Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2014/3/little-olivia-cornelius-newborn-photographer This baby girl was so much fun to photograph! We held her session at the Fire Station where her proud Dad works…let me just say I would really be ok with setting up a future studio in this fire station because the light is just GORGEOUS! Olivia's parents were so smitten over her--just look through these photos from our time together and you will see why! :)

Charlie {Charlotte Newborn Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2014/2/charlie-charlotte-newborn-photographer I enjoyed every minute working with this tiny little guy! He couldn't wait to meet his family,  came a few weeks earlier than anticipated, and was perfect in every way!

Nathan {Huntersville Newborn Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2014/2/nathan-huntersville-newborn-photographer Here's a little flashback to this sweet guy's session back before Christmas! He slept and posed to perfection. His big sis enjoyed following close behind with her toy camera as I worked. :)

We Have Some Big News…. http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/12/we-have-some-big-news Things are about to get really fun around the McKenzie home…! I am excited to announce that we are expecting twin girls this coming May! Matt and I got to find out their gender just before Christmas and surprise each other by revealing one twin at a time to each other.  We have been so blessed to walk through a bit of a bumpy road as we desired to grow our family. Yes, it was definitely tough, but we believe God is ALWAYS good and has perfect timing and purposes in all that He does. I am humbled that I get to carry these 2 little girls and be their momma!

Because twins tend to come a bit earlier than normal (average is 35 weeks...for us that is the first week of April) I am not going to be booking any sessions starting at the end of February. We have lots to prepare for and I would hate to book a session and then have them surprise us with an early arrival! I am not yet sure as to when I will return to shooting full-time, but will keep my past clients updated when I have any new information. We are so thankful and excited for what is in store! I know it will be crazy but SO completely worth it. The biggest challenge for me will be figuring out how to hold a baby and a camera at the same time ;-).

Thank you to my amazing clients for a wonderful year, and have a very merry Christmas!

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

Hudson is One! {Huntersville Family Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/12/hudson-is-one-huntersville-family-photographer ​It was with mixed emotions I went through this session with my very first 'Baby Plan' graduate, Hudson! I really still can't believe how fast babies' first year goes by. It has been so much fun watching him grow and working with his sweet mom and dad this past year. He really wanted to go out with a bang and completely turned on the charm for this last session. Enjoy this (rather large!) peek into our evening at Fisher Farms. :)

Sunday {Huntersville Baby Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/12/sunday-huntersville-baby-photographer This little miss was so much fun at our session earlier this fall! This family had just purchased a home together, and their real estate agent (and friend of mine) gave them the gift of a session with Meghan McKenzie Photography. Now their new home will have walls filled with these sweet family images! I can't thank my friend, Alyssa Roccanti enough for thoughtfully passing on my work to her clients! If you are ever in need of a home in the Charlotte area, you can contact her here: www.SavvyAlyssa.com.

Enjoy the pictures!

Judah | Charlotte Newborn Photographer http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/11/judah-charlotte-newborn-photographer This is NOT going to be a short blog post…you have been warned! This little guy's newborn session was back in early September, and I have been so excited to share ever since! I don't think I got to know Judah very well because he slept the ENTIRE time I was there! :) Enjoy this sweet squishy boy's session!

Cayden | Huntersville Newborn Photographer http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/11/cayden-huntersville-newborn-photographer This blog post (and the ones to follow) is LONG overdue! This sweet little guy made his appearance late this summer, and he was a JOY to photograph! He has clearly stolen his parents' hearts already. They didn't even mind when he made a mess all over mom's shirt right in the middle of shooting. :) Here are some of my favorites from our time together. Enjoy!

Murphy Family | Cornelius Family Photographer http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/10/murphy-family-cornelius-family-photographer This fall has gotten off to a busy start to say the least, and unfortunately I have neglected updating this blog with all the latest sessions of my wonderful clients. Here is a long overdue share from a family session late in the summer. We had some iffy weather at the start, but everything worked out wonderfully! I couldn't help but include a couple shots of their sweet girl's 'reward' at the end of the session--a tea party in her snow white costume :). 

Enjoy! :)

Hudson * 9 months {Huntersville Baby Photographer} http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/9/hudson-9-months-huntersville-baby-photographer I am continually amazed at how fast the tiny newborns I photograph turn into little people! I have so enjoyed capturing this little guy throughout his first year, and cannot believe the next time I get together with he and his family, he will be ONE! Enjoy these images from our morning in Davidson!

Jaxson | Huntersville Newborn Photographer http://www.meghanmckenziephotography.com/blog/2013/8/jaxson-huntersville-newborn-photographer So thrilled to share this sweet session of this little guy and his proud new parents! He was such a content sleeper, and I just LOVE the shots we got of him with mom and dad. Working on photos like those...I could do it all day!!

We also got to slip him into a sentimental prop for a few shots. His dad made the wooden tray you see him resting in below for his mom before they were even married. They said they never thought that just a few years later, their sweet new baby would be sleeping in it! It is so fun when we get to include personal items of significance into these sessions. So grateful I get to do this as my job.  :)

He was putting us to work with his newly discovered ability to crawl! In-between all the moving around, we caught some sweet shots of him in all his baby glory. Such a handsome, happy little guy.  :) caleb5 caleb2 caleb1 caleb3 caleb4

I couldn't be happier for this new family of three. This session was so sweet...Olivia was completely conked out the ENTIRE time. I don't think I even saw an eye open once! With her momma being a photographer, it looks as though she is already getting used to the sounds of a shutter click. ;) Enjoy these images from our lifestyle at-home session!olivia1 olivia2 olivia3 olivia6 olivia4 olivia5
