Howe Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Howe Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
I met Ali and Austin for the first time at the very beginning of this year, at the Young Life Banquet. I knew they were friends of Callie's through Young Life, and I also knew that Ali was expecting a baby a couple months later in 2017. She had already scheduled me for a session for Summer 2017 at that point, and after meeting her I was so excited to work with her! F[...]

Jamie and Wes Apex, NC Film Session

Jamie and Wes Apex, NC Film Session
Jamie and Wes's little day-in-the-life-type session was probably one of my favorites of all time! They've lived in their tiny cottage in downtown Apex since they were married, and wanted to commemorate their time in that home before moving on to a new home this summer. It didn't take me long to realize that that sweet little house is just jam-packed with so many swee[...]

Ray Family Film Maternity Session

Ray Family Film Maternity Session
From Elizabeth: I'm just going to level with you and let you know that I have literally no clue where to begin with this post. How about I'll just start with how it fills my heart to the brim to see this family grow. Personally, I've never really known Nancy without Will - even when we were college roommates, she and Will were dating. When they got married, it made [...]

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2
We had so many images we loved from May mini's that we decided to break them up into two separate posts! We can't always pray the weather perfect, but I love that each family that came out just had fun with it and enjoyed the time, whether reveling in the warmth of a brief moment of bright sunshine, or chasing little ones for snuggles in a moment of light drizzle. An[...]

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1
May mini-sessions didn't disappoint, even with the somewhat icky start to the day with the weather! While we do love that beautiful sunlight, sometimes an overcast forecast is good for a change. If I've said it once, I've said it a billion times - I could not have done it without our amazing intern, Anna! We had tons of familiar faces throughout the day and even enjo[...]

Why Scheduling Your Family Photos Once a Year is Important

Why Scheduling Your Family Photos Once a Year is Important
You know who doesn't exist? Moms who DON'T talk about how fast their kids are growing. I mean... it's true, right?! If you're a mom, you think on a daily basis about how your kid is already so different than last year, about how time is moving too quickly. Reason number 231 that having regular photos taken of your family is so important! I'll give you a couple other [...]

Wally King Film Newborn Session

Wally King Film Newborn Session
This family, y'all! Sometimes I walk into a home and just instantly feel... at home. Welcomed. I'm not really sure if it was their sweet, laid back temperaments or what, but this is how I felt the moment I walked into Kendall and Cameron's home. They introduced me to Wally pretty quickly, and it didn't take me long to figure out that he was definitely one easy-goin[...]

Millie Morales Film Newborn Session

Millie Morales Film Newborn Session
This family - the Morales family - holds some sentimental value for me as a photographer. See that adorable little girl (now big sister) in these photos? That's Daphne, and she was the very first newborn I ever photographed. I remember being nervous doing Daphne's newborn session - it was my very first one and I had crazy butterflies as I was getting started, but I re[...]
