Callie and Jamie Film Anniversary Session

Callie and Jamie Film Anniversary Session
Hi there! Below is a session that means a whole lot to me. Over the Fourth of July, Andrew and I headed to the beach with Callie and Jamie, and while there I did a little anniversary session for the two of them and their little pups! Callie and I have spent a lot of time together over the last 2 and a half years. She was the primary person to train me, we have gone on[...]

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[...]

Tidwell Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
Stephanie, the beautiful mama in these photographs, has been the brilliant designer behind my home’s refresh. Not only that, but she is a lifelong friend of mine - we grew up going on vacations together since our parents were in business together. I have been so inspired by this woman and her family. She’s the kind of person you are just drawn to because of her joy, h[...]

Whitney and Nick Beaufort, NC Film Maternity Session

Whitney and Nick Beaufort, NC Film Maternity Session
This maternity session brings me all the feels. I’ve photographed Whitney and Nick’s engagement session, Whit’s bridal session, their wedding day, and their anniversary session. I’ve been following along with this sweet pregnancy, and I wish I could grab you by the face right now and say these words: Miracles HAPPEN. Whitney had cervical cancer and beat it. S[...]

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[...]

Davis Family Film Session

Davis Family Film Session
I'll never forget the day that Callie stepped out of the studio to take a phone call, to come back inside crying with some heart wrenching news. "I just found out that Jamie's Dad has been diagnosed with ALS." We stopped what we were doing, hugged her, and cried with her. We asked what we could do, but we all felt helpless, because as of right now there is no cu[...]

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
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 [...]
