a lovely Freedom Park family session- Charlotte NC photographer

For all the Charlotte photographers out there, you know the pros and cons of scheduling sessions at Freedom Park.  The pro’s– it’s convenient, beautiful and versatile, with stone bridges, grassy areas and pretty trees, and the cons- it’s super busy.  Not just the joggers, walkers, but hoards of other photogs out there, some with intense lighting setups.  And then you get the crazy photographers like me who lug a wagon of vintage styled props and tend to spread out stuff everywhere.

Well… this session at Freedom Park made me fall in love with the park all over again.  Was it the park?  With the beautiful, sparkling natural morning light?  Maybe.  Or was it the family?  The loving and warm parents with their super good-natured baby boy that just kept smiling and smiling.  He was amazing to work with, I kind of wanted to scoop him up and cuddle him for hours.  He is going to be a big brother soon, and he will be the best!

Thank you, lovely B family!  For sharing such a special morning with me in such a beautiful park.  And thank you little J… for the smiles that made my whole day!
