The Pacifico family melted my heart!! From the moment they stepped into the studio to look at all of my outfits for mommy and sister:). We had an epic night here in Tega Cay and the sunset didn’t disappoint!! Big sister gave me a run for my money, but in my profession, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When baby brother came into the world, he was no different!! He didn’t want to sleep and wanted to eat the whole time! We would get 1 pose before he’d need to eat again. But look at those eyes! The classic, simplicity of these are so special.

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good-bye.
Teach your children well,
Their father's hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you.

26 letters from A to Z
L-A-U-G-H, E and there's S
put them in an order and
they become words
words become a sentence
when you add nouns and verbs

i'd like to show you a million things
i'd like to make the world for you a better place
but when it pours, it really rains, so
put on your boots, and let's play

ants live in a jungle
leave a trail to their homes
so they can find their way back
if they're ever alone

monkeys in the trees
they eat bananas too fast
lions and the tigers they
hunt in the grass

i'd like to show you a million things
i'd like to make the world for you a better place
but when it pours, it really rains, so
put on your boots, and let's play

how come all the rulers of this earth
get off on teaching something strong(?)
please learn to rule with your head, not your fist
and those lessons that you learn will carry on

i'd like to show you a million things
i'd like to make the world for you a better place
but when it pours, it really rains, so
put on your boots, and let's play

it's a long long way to go now
i'll be there if you call
it's a long long way to go now
i'll be there if you call

Ok confession…Crew is actually 6 months old today….I may be just a touch behind on blogging all of my sessions this year….Like just a little:)

This little nugget and his adorable sister live in my neighborhood. I just love meeting new neighbors and snuggling their babies. I seriously have the best job in the world.

A baby is a gift, a blessing that makes our lives worthwhile,
As they complete us, give us purpose and always manage to make us smile.

Their cuddles, snuggles, and soft kisses can brighten up any day.
And it's amazing that even just watching them sleep can make all our problems simply fade away.

When they gently clasp your finger or you gaze down at their cute little feet,
We are reminded every day just how precious they are, so perfect and oh so sweet.

We have come together with our family and friends on this absolutely perfect day
To ask God if he could look after this princess as she goes on her way.

We pray that He will keep her healthy and safe and always be her guide,
And that he will be there for her when she needs him to be right by her side.

As we watch her grow and learn, I hope she always learns right from wrong.
May she be little warrior, brave and fearless, but at the same time, kind, gentle yet strong.

May she never stop following her dreams and reach for the highest stars in the sky.
Help her believe and achieve and let her spirits always fly high.

We hope that she will be respectful, humble, honest and true.
A life filled with pure happiness is what we all wish for you.

May she always be surrounded by laughter and her heart always filled with love.
And from this moment, we pray that she will be forever faithful to the Lord above.

God bless you, little angel; may you never stop wearing a golden halo,
And my wish for you is that your life will always be like a rainbow.

Perfect in every single way and just so beautiful to see,
A life that will be intriguing and as colorful as can be.

This boy has my heart. I had the honor of meeting him and his wonderful family through GiGi’s Playhouse, a down syndrome achievement center, that is now open in Charlotte! He was one of my little models for their travel photos before they opened. He was shy, but my awesome singing abilities, made him smile;) You can hear that beautiful serenade HERE.

I don’t think he touched the cake at all, but he sure loved the bath!!!

Each Child is Different

I cannot change the way I am,
I never really try,
God made me different and unique,
I never ask him why.

If I appear peculiar,
There's nothing I can do,
You must accept me as I am,
As I've accepted you.

God made a casting of each life,
Then threw the mold away,
Each child is different from the rest,
Unlike as night from day.

So often we will criticize,
The things that others do,
But, do you know, they do not think,
The same as me and you.

So God in all his wisdom,
Who knows us all by name,
He didn't want us to be bored,
That's why we're not the same.

My Spring Trip To Chicago | Charlotte Family Photographer

I am a maternity, newborn, family and senior photographer located near Charlotte, NC. My studio is located in Tega Cay, SC and I shoot in all surrounding areas. I have been photographing for over 5 years, capturing hundreds of brand new babies through my lens.  For booking information, availability or to schedule a studio tour, please email us via the contact tab or email us anytime at ginawhalenphotography@gmail.com.

I wasn’t going to go back to Chicago this year, but I had a few of my best clients ask, so I put a feeler out….and was booked within an hour! I just love these people and love coming back to see them.

My trip didn’t start out great, didn’t have the best middle, and didn’t end smoothly either. My youngest was up ALL night the night before I left with the stomach bug. My husband was traveling, so it was just me, myself, and I taking care of him. I got about an hour of sleep, took care of him during the day, packed and off I went to Chicago on Friday night. My flight was delayed and when all was said and done, I laid my head down just after midnight. The morning quickly came and I started my first of 15 sessions (including a newborn).

Shortly after my newborn session I received word that my Grandma had passed away. I’m glad I was home to be with my family for a short while during that. Sunday was my busiest day with 9 out of the 15 sessions and I was back on the plane at 9PM and got back at 2AM. I woke up to now 2 sick kids, a pile of work, and a husband that is off to another work trip.

It has been a long 2 weeks as my kids FINALLY have shaken whatever they had and I am just about finished with everyone’s session! As always, I love everyone and can’t wait to see everyone again next year. For now, here are some of my favorites from all of my lovely clients.

Chicago Winter Maternity Session | Charlotte Maternity Photographer

Better late than never! Hahaha. When you fly to Chicago in January and they have snow, you call your gorgeous, pregnant, photographer friend and tell her you’re taking her photos:). Now that she is having this baby in less than 15 days, I figured I would edit them for her;). Love you Brittany! I can’t wait to see this sweet baby girl.

Allmond Bump to Baby | Charlotte Newborn Photographer

“Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.”
— Lisa Weed

Let’s talk about the stunning beauty that is this momma!! She came in a rocked her maternity session. I just love the simplicity that showcases her amazing glow.

Baby Asher gave me smiles, slept the whole time, and was just all around amazing!! He is so loved:).

Last night I prayed on a fallen star
That you never have a broken heart
Though the world is cold, just remember who you are
And I pray that you never have a rainy day
And no matter what people say
Even when it hurts it’ll be okay
Tomorrow brings new promise so don’t worry ‘bout today
The first time I saw you
I knew my life had changed
I would’ve been dead and gone
But I found purpose when I brought you home
And even though I’m not there to tuck you in everyday
I’m not far away
This is what a mother prays
— Celion Dion

How to prepare for you newborn session | Charlotte Newborn Photographer

Charlotte, NC | Tega Cay, SC | York County, SC | Mecklenburg County | Charlotte Photographer


Charlotte baby photographer

Having a baby?

Having a baby?

This time in your life is crazy, exciting, scary, and all so special. So let's get started!

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

  • When do I book my session? I suggest researching and contacting photographers you may want to use early in your pregnancy. Once you find someone you want to work with, book within your second trimester. Most photographers have certain schedules and only take a certain number of newborns a month.

  • I booked, now what? I send you everything you need for a successful session. Prep guide, style guide, questionnaires, etc. I provide everything for the session: hats, headbands, props, etc. I even have a wardrobe closet for moms and kids. My goal is to do everything so you can relax!

  • Baby is here, when do we do our session? I like to photograph babies from 5-11 days new. This, in my experience, has been the best time to photograph those sleepy babies. Email/call/text me when you have the baby so I can get you in my studio within that time frame!

  • Where will our session be? I do all of my newborn session in my studio in Tega Cay, SC.

  • How will I pick what type of colors I want? Start by thinking of where your photos will be displayed in your home. Tell me about your color schemes, your style, and colors of the nursery. From there, you will be given a questionnaire with all colors I have in the studio. You can pick 1-2 main colors and 2-3 complimenting colors that I will use throughout your session. If you're unsure, just ask and we will talk through what will be best.

I may not be everyone’s photographer and that’s ok!! Please just do your research and make sure your photographer is insured and has much knowledge on handling your precious new bundle!!

Hansen Maternity and Newborn | Charlotte Baby Photographer

I am a newborn photographer centrally located near Charlotte, NC and Tega Cay, SC. I have been photographing newborns for 5 years and have captured many babies in the safety of my studio. My photography studio is located in Tega Cay, SC, conveniently near 77 and 485.  For booking information, availability or to schedule a studio tour, please email us via the contact tab.

The Hansen Family has booked the full year, so I'm so excited to capture Barrett for the next year!

Jaime's maternity session was perfection. Doug, Jaime and Cooper all came to King's Landing Farm, ready to go! Cooper, as all 2.5 year olds, was excited to see everything around him. Being on a farm as a little boy is so great! Luckily, the farm owners, Mary and Joe, are wonderful and always lend a hand, or a pony:). 

Once Barrett entered the world, I was able to capture the new family of 4! Cooper is an amazing big brother and I was able to capture great photos of their bond. 

Most newborn either sleep the whole time or need to eat 1 time during a session. Barrett on the other hand needed a little snack after every pose. Hahahaha. He was a hungry little guy for sure. But he rocked every pose after his belly was full!

See you in a few months, little man!

GiGi's Playhouse in Charlotte NC | Charlotte family photographer

I didn't realize how much I missed my old job until I was here with all of these amazing children! The pure joy, love, and excitement was incredible. I am so excited to be a part of something so special. 

This GiGi's location will hopefully be up and running by the end of the year. They hit a record with earning over $100,000 in under 1 month! Can you say AMAZING?! To think of all of the lives this is going to help. 

If you are unfamiliar with GiGi's, click here to read about it. You can also donate to help bring this vision to life! 

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is just that little extra."
