Sneak Peek {Maternity}: Kira, Rusty, Asher, and Baby Dos

You all have seen this family before, and they are so super special to me! I am so blessed by all three (well, four) of them and was so glad Kira decided to do a maternity session this time around.  Kira wanted a simple, country feel to her images, and I think we definitely accomplished that!  This is a bigger sneak peek than usual because I just love all of the images of this family.  I love that Kira puts so much time and thought into every session, and she always makes sure to include items that are super sentimental to her, items that relate to her family. This time around, she chose to do their session at her grandparents’ farm, which is so beautiful. She brought in a super cute sweater that was made by her grandmother as well. And Rusty is always so super cooperative and goes with the flow.  Kira, you are beautiful and such an awesome friend!  I can’t wait until Baby Dos is born!















Sneak Peek {Family}: Harris Family

I haven’t seen these two in years! I actually grew up with both of them and even remember when they first started dating. And now they have two beautiful children! It was a joy to capture this family and to even catch up a little bit. Thank you, Lauren and Tommy, for giving me a glimpse into your now family of four!












Sneak Peek {Newborn}: Eli

I did Beth’s maternity session a while back. When she had approached me about it and told me how far along she was, I wasn’t sure we’d get the session done before baby Eli was born! But he waited for us and was quite late in making his appearance! His newborn session included the whole family who are all pretty excited that he’s finally here. Congratulations again, Beth and Dan, on your new little arrival!










Sneak Peek {Family}: The Southall Family

This is a very sweet family! Macey goes to preschool with my daughter and Wendy does my hair 🙂 I’ve known them for a while now and was excited that Wendy wanted to use me as their photographer this year. They haven’t had family pictures done in quite some time! Wendy wanted their session to be on their farm so all these images are unique and special to their family. I thought it was cool that all the pine trees on their land were planted so that they can be timbered later to help pay for their kids’ college education! And Jarett’s parents lived on this farm. His dad worked the land. So it’s a very special place for the Southall family.  Thank you Wendy and Jarett (and Macey and Parker) for making our session fun!


This family loves their little beagles!  They wanted their pets included in this session 🙂

This one is one of my favorites!  Both the kids are saying “Ewwww!”

Sneak Peek {Family}: The Nelms Family

One of my favorite parts of photography is getting to a session and really not knowing what you’re gonna get! Will the kids be happy, sad, mad, crazy, calm? Will it be rainy, cloudy, sunny? It makes my job fun, interesting, and challenging 🙂 The Nelms family was no exception! They have two beautiful, fun, curious children. And despite the fact that it really was pretty chilly and cloudy, they stuck it out with grace. Thank you Nelms family for keeping me on my toes!










Sneak Peek {Maternity}: The Namishia Family

I loved meeting this family and capturing them! And I love the images I got from our session. They are so real and so them and so full of love!  And this session was super special to my heart for several reasons.  Beth told me that this is her last baby and that she wants to remember herself this way.  She loves being pregnant, and she loves children.  And, while I don’t know if I’ll ever have any children again, I can understand the feeling that she may have knowing that she won’t.  She’s saying goodbye to a very special part of her life while saying hello to a new life!  So I can relate to both!  She also told me that she wanted some semi-nude maternity shots (I’m calling it maternity boudoire), which was so much fun!  It was awesome to see her feel so beautiful pregnant 🙂  This family is awesome.  Their children are all full of life and crazy active and Beth and Dan are so loving and real and raw.  Beth and Dan, thank you so much for letting me into your little world.  It was such an honor to work with you all and so much fun!











I loved seeing and hearing Beth laugh!  It’s so open and unapologetic and it makes me smile!


If you or someone you know is interested in a maternity boudoire session, please feel free to contact me for that information as well as samples from Beth’s session!

Sneak Peek {Family}: The Wicker Family

I had the pleasure of meeting this family last year for CC’s one year photo shoot, and it led to me having the opportunity to care for CC on a regular basis and to them joinging our church! So I was excited to hear that they were going to be at the beach during the time that we would be and that they wanted CC’s two-year session there. And depsite all the excitement (i.e. an earthquake and impending hurricane) as well as the fact that CC and her mom had a bad cold, this session was fun! CC did awesome despite the fact that she didn’t feel well, and it was neat to see her in a different environment from where I usually see her. Thank you again, Wicker Family, for having me as your photographer! I really enjoyed our session!













Sneak Peek {Family}: Phillip, Kimberly, and Lila

This is the first session I’ve had to do on two separate days (due to bad weather on the first)! And this family was so awesome about coming back the second time! They were so laid back and cooperative (something I don’t know that I could boast given the same situation). Lila will be turning one soon and she is such a beautiful blue-eyed baby! Phillip and Kimberly, thank you for all the effort you put into this session and for being so easy to capture! Happy Birthday, Lila! (Oh, and Happy Father’s Day, Phillip!)












Sneak Peek {Family}: The Johnston Family

Meet Steve, Alicia, and Evan! Evan turned 1 a few months back and he is such an active and curious little boy! We had the perfect day for this session at a beautiful and fun Cary park. Thank you, Johnston family, for making your session fun and for being such a joy to capture!













Sneak Peek {Wedding}: Melanie + Mitchell

Posted on

I’m so happy Melanie and Mitchell tied the knot! They make such a wonderful couple!  Their wedding was sweet and simple and their reception was a big bash (with awesome food).  It was perfect for them!  And I am so thankful that, for the most part, the rain stayed away.  Thanks to both of you for letting me share in your day and congratulations again on being Mr. and Mrs.!

I love how the photo booth pictures turned out!
