When your dad is a wood-worker, you get all of the cool toys for your studio! Thanks, dad!

This sweet girl turned 6 yesterday, and while at times those six years feel like they've aged me 600 years, looking back, they went SO fast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And can we be real for a minute.... I feel like I missed a lot of it. She has pushed every button, stretched every inch of patience, and taken us on an emotional roller coaster, on the daily. I was just waiting for the next day, hoping whatever phase she was in would be over. I'd say around 5 things started to even out a bit and get easier, but we still have those days... and usually "those days" mean it's time for a good nap.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know these traits will be a huge benefit to her one day, and I'm so glad she is who she is. She has made me grow and bend and stretch to be a good mama to her, and I just hope that one day she will see that I tried. She is nurturing, affectionate, inclusive and joyful. She sings non-stop and is a collector of all-of-the-things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you continue to to find your way in the world by running it your way. Shine on, sweet girl.

When everyone is looking and smiling in the first shot! Gosh I love it when that happens!

03/05/2021

Hey mom! Check out my cool moves!

03/05/2021

I get to see this sweet girl this weekend! I think my favorite thing to capture is when mama is pregnant, though the first year. So many changes, so many little details we will too soon forget.

03/03/2021

Today’s thoughts. A reminder to myself. ❤️

03/02/2021

Hi! Happy Tuesday! Let's be as excited as this guy!

02/25/2021

I love a sweet nursery shot!

02/24/2021

Tomorrow is Wednesday, we can tackle this week.

02/23/2021

This maternity session was pure magic!

02/22/2021

This sweet girl was the most doting big sister. Everyone should have a sister like her!

Hi, this is me on a Saturday morning. It's my morning to sleep in. It's been freezing cold and raining here for over a week, and I will be thoroughly enjoying our fleece sheets. Stay warm and dry (unless it's snowing!) this weekend!

02/20/2021

It's Friday, are you as excited as this kid?!

02/17/2021

This first-time-mama is about to go have a baby this weekend and I cannot wait to meet their sweet girl! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let's leave her some well wishes in the comments!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our Motherhood Event opened to the public this morning and I cannot wait to see all of these mamas and their babies! My heart could burst! Y'all have almost sold out the remaining spots in less than 24 hours!!! THANK YOU.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, gosh, I just love simplicity. It allows the connection and subjects to really shine. Don't get me wrong, I love a good background that is beautiful, or helps to tell a story, but THIS. This is what I come for.

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

02/14/2021

If you're looking for a cute and easy Valentine's Day treat to do with the kiddos for Valentine's Day, make a tray of brownies, grab some cookie cutters and popsicle sticks and go to down! The girls had so much fun decorating these, and eating them, of course. We just melted some white chocolate chips and grabbed heart sprinkles to top them off!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Super simple and delicious!

02/12/2021

Y'all. I POSTED OVER ON CWP's JOURNAL!!!! This sweet maternity session is from ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO. I know, shameful. I am so embarrassed. It's been almost a year since I've blogged at all, so now I've got a real back-log of sessions to share with you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my goals for 2021 is to blog a session or photography related post once a week. You'll also see some Chrissy Winchester Blog content sprinkled in here; recipes, DIY, motherhood, favorite finds, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks for staying along for the ride!

02/12/2021

We're almost to the weekend! Who wants a cookie?!

02/11/2021

This was a true lifestyle session. We captured them spending time in their home as a family, doing things they love. Making pancakes, playing with blocks, hanging outside. It was one of my favorite sessions of 2020!

Scenes from a COVID workday.

02/10/2021

YAWN. Has this whole pandemic thing made anyone else less of a morning person? We were in a routine, starting our days early, everyone out the door early, back and forth all day, and then it stopped. And now it's slow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At first I loved it, especially with homeschool, we could get up when we wanted, school didn't start until 9am... now with virtual school, we're kind of back to a schedule, but not. My night owl self is having a really hard time getting back into early mornings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you an early morning riser, or a night owl? Also- give me all the tips- do those rise and shine daylight clock things work?! #charlottenewborns #charlottenewbornphotography #cltnewbornphotographer #lifestylenewborn #lifestylephotographer #charlottelifestylephotographer #cltnewbornphotography #charlottenewbornphotographer #cltbabyphotographer #charlottebabyphotographer #cltnewbornphotoshoot #cltnewborns #charlottemoms #charlottefamily #cltmaternityphotographer #newbornbaby #newbornphotoshoot #charlottematernityphotographer #charlottematernityphotoshoot #lknphotographer #lknnewbornphotographer #cltmoms #cltchildphotographer #thefountcollective #themotherhoodanthology #lepechejournal

Do you need some joy this week? Grab all of the prepackaged snacks at target and make it happen with a Valentine’s Day snack board! Or get creative and make some cute, easy DIY brownie pops and dipped wafers!

I made a commitment last year to shoot one roll of film every month for our personal family yearbook. It's definitely been a learning curve and I am still far from an expert, but it's been fun and rewarding to learn something new! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I am a firm believer in getting new branding photos done yearly at a minimum to keep things fresh and make sure YOU always show up in your feed. I'm so grateful for talented friends to trade with! Photo cred: @cheyenneschultz⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Real Talk: Baby #3 was a game changer for us. I remember thinking with the girls, I was getting a bit bored. Not that they were boring of course, but they were getting... easy. Clearly, adding another child to the mix was the answer. Not doing more extra-curriculars or picking up another hobby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
B was our hardest baby, our most fun toddler and is adored by all of us. We obviously would never change a thing, but three was the hardest shift for us. I always joke we should add another one, because I really don't think it would change things much! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let's do a poll... do you prefer posed or unposed newborn photos? Or a mix? Props or no props?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I take a bit of a hybrid approach, by doing some lifestyle shots, mixed with some baby-led posing (that means no positions baby wouldn't normally be found in). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My style is simple and pure with no distractions to deter from the subject of the photo, allowing all of the tiny details and features to shine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your preference?! Leave it in the comments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So much joy waiting for her baby boy! Did you hold true to the old wives tale that boys carry lower than girls? I don't feel like I did, I feel like all of my babes carried right around the middle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This might one of my very favorite daddy/baby photos. There is just so much to love about it, and who can resist a monogrammed baby bottom?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This time last year I was working with heatheropal.art on some EPIC Valentine's Day mini sessions. It was such a joy working with another mama + creative. Heather is so talented and it has been so fun to watch her business grow and transform over the last year! Cheers to fellow creatives! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Those little detail shots though. These are some of my favorite images. The not-so-apparent, subtle comforts. They show so much love and connection.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
