my hunky nephew | charlotte baby photographer staci noel by Staci Noel

One year ago in December our family was blessed with the arrival of what can only be described as one funny, hunky, adorable little boy with the most amazing blue eyes! Good fortune and a little planning have allowed me to be around to take his newborn, 6 month, and now his first birthday portraits as my sister and her family came to Charlotte for the holidays to visit.

As with most one year old babies, sitting still in studio isn't always easy but he certainly wasn't shy about that cake and once we put it down on his level decided the best way to eat it was to simply put his face in it. A cake smash session doesn't get any better than that!

Happy birthday sweet boy!

This sweet girl has the most gorgeous name - Elliette! Don't you just love that???? She had quite the story for her arrival as she didn't even let mama get to the hospital but decided to make her debut in their car on the way!

I seriously get to work some of the most awesome people and I loved everything about this family; there was so much love and laughter that I couldn't help but just adore them all. They even brought Grandma along and we got to include her in our session with her sweet girls!

Toddler siblings always make for a lively session and that especially included big sister Taylor, who is not only is a huge personality in a itty bitty body but the most expressive two year old I have ever met! It also doesn't hurt that she was happy to snuggle up on my lap and let me pick her up for hugs whenever I wanted:)

Congratulation to this amazing family - I know that the years with these two girls will bring you endless joy!

I had the joy of photographing Miss Brooklyn before she was even earth side as I did her mommy's maternity photos:) We followed that up with her newborn session, her 6 month session and recently it was time to celebrate her very first birthday! While she wasn't too sure about the cake at first we managed to get some gorgeous shots of that devilish little grin she has and some pretty lovely images of her beautiful personality!

Happy birthday big girl!!!
