Welcome Baby Lucas!

Oh sweet boy, it was such a privilege to meet you on your Birth Day!

And then my soul saw you, and it kind of went, “Oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you.” ~ Iain S Thomas

Oh what a privilege it is to meet a new little one, just hours old, fresh from Heaven.  I am always so grateful to parents who invite me in to help welcome their precious little one for a Fresh 48 Session.  To capture those early moments of bonding between their precious new addition and parents, grandparents, and siblings.

I am so proud to introduce to you:

Baby Lucas Matias

Born November 1, 2018

An even 7 Pounds of Perfection


Congratulations Ana, Jorge and Big Sister Valentina! He is just beautiful!  Please join me in wishing them all a warm Felicidades to them all in the comments below!

Underwater Maternity

After doing Lucas’ parents Underwater Maternity Photos in August, this was an extra special honor indeed!  I adore working with clients over and over, building that relationship and comfort level is one of the most rewarding parts of my job!  Thank you Ana and Jorge for trusting me yet again to capture these memories for your family.  I hope to continue to do so!

Amazing Mama

Mom is pretty amazing ~ and runs a lovely spa as well.  If she looks that amazing four hours after giving birth, we clearly all need to be lining up for treatments!!  So hint hint Hubby ~ I think I need a facial from the Ana Diaz Spa on my Christmas List!

I am not sure I have ever met a Daddy more giddy about having a newborn baby.  He wanted in on every detail ~ he even wanted to make sure the nurse didn’t change little Lucas so that he could be the first person to change him.  It was so sweet!!RENEE STENGEL Photography | Charlotte Underwater and Portrait Photographer | Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Boy | Novant Health Matthews Women's Center

Is there anything more beautiful than a Mama and her newborn baby?  This sweet boy was barely four hours old when I arrived to capture his first moments with this beautiful Mama.  Oh those first snuggles. Those first kisses. Those first….RENEE STENGEL Photography | Charlotte Underwater and Portrait Photographer | Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Boy | Novant Health Matthews Women's Center RENEE STENGEL Photography | Charlotte Underwater and Portrait Photographer | Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Boy | Novant Health Matthews Women's Center

Have you ever seen a prouder Grandpa?  I think the only one in the room beaming more than Daddy ~ was Poppy!RENEE STENGEL Photography | Charlotte Underwater and Portrait Photographer | Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Boy | Novant Health Matthews Women's Center

I love being able to take a few minutes and include special friends and family that are there to visit ~ on such a special day it seems that absolutely everyone is positively glowing!

And the Beautiful Ms Valentina… She hurried home from school to meet her new baby brother and I was able to capture those moments just before I left.  What a special bond they will have…RENEE STENGEL Photography | Charlotte Underwater and Portrait Photographer | Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Boy | Novant Health Matthews Women's Center

Welcome sweet boy.  There is no doubt whatsoever that you are one very loved baby boy…

Bienvenido Bebé.  Recuerda que eres amado.

Think Mama looks amazing four hours after giving birth?  You should see her Underwater Maternity Photos at nearly Eight Months Pregnant!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I would love to hear from you below if you have any questions or comments.  If you are interested in scheduling a Fresh 48 Session, please use the Get in Touch tab Here ~ I would love to chat with you.  And while my pool is likely closed for the winter (I always hold out hope for warmer weather ;), I do have access to an indoor pool for Winter Underwater Maternity Sessions through February, and plan to reopen my own pool in March.
