Summer Family Portraits | Charlotte, North Carolina Newborn Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography →

These family portraits are some you don't want to miss!  If you've been following me for even a minute, you've probably seen sweet Brooklyn. She's the sweetest little red head who is now turning blonder by the moment, and growing up right before our eyes!  

The McKees are sweet friends of mine, and I'm so appreciative for their continued support of my business, and that they have chose to grow with me as their family grows.  I work with Amy at the hospital before she had Brooklyn and we were fast friends.  She's the sweetest, most genuine person.  I'm so glad to call her my friend!  Not only is she a great friend, she's so patient with Brooklyn, and she's a wonderful NICU nurse.  

These family portraits were taken at one of my new favorite locations for a family session.  It's located in Ballantyne, so it's not too far outside of Charlotte. The McKees are always willing to drive to great locations to create beautiful images like these.  We hit the park at the PERFECT time of day for lighting - that golden hour, though!

Congratulations Amy, Elliot, and big sister Brooklyn!

Newborn Announcements | Charlotte, NC Newborn Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

This is Lainey!  She decided to come along during December, which is just in time for a Christmas newborn announcement.  These were hand-designed by Yours Truly, and I just love how they turned out.  These might just be my favorite newborn announcements yet!  Lainey is the perfect little gift these first-time parents could have asked for.  Oh, and let's talk about her name for a moment!  Her name is a family name, but she'll go by Lainey.  Elaine is such a classic name, and it means "shining light."  I think that fits her perfectly!  

Below, you'll find a few more of my favorite newborn announcements that I created this past year.  Clients always have the option to customize the announcements and choose the size and paper they'd like.  Some enjoy being involved in the process while other trust my judgement and like more of a "hands-off" approach :)   Either way, I love presenting these to clients - and then they get to deliver them to friends and family!  Such a fun little way to introduce your new baby to your loved ones!
