Welcome to The Blog!

“Six. Because Five is so last year!” I giggled so much at Piper’s sixth birthday session. We stopped on the side of the road in Lillington, NC and snagged these gorgeously green wheat field pictures, then headed downtown for some spunky outfit shots!

One thing Collier enjoys is golfing with Daddy, so it was only right to celebrate on the green with his clubs, take a ride on the golf cart, and head back home for a delicious golf cake. He definitely enjoyed it, and we enjoyed watching him tear into it. It’s safe to say this session was extra sweet!

These two littles are Ira-Grace and Lillian, and it was a joy to capture them at six months. You may or may not know that I have two little boy twins, so this session was easy to relate to – but not only relate, absolutely admire! My life forever changed with Judah and Joseph, and […]

Seems like just yesterday when we made Charli’s newborn session, and here I am posting her three months. Time just flies! Even with my four little ones. It’s unbelievable! That’s why these milestone sessions are so precious. And I love how these are made in the comfort of the home, especially in these cold winter months! She did so well.

I yelled out “HEY, YOU, with the mullet!!” He automatically looked at me, grinned, and pointed in my direction… and we all died laughing. Best wedding memory ever. I did not meet Karsyn at their wedding, but after she contacted me and shared that she was “mullet man’s” fiance, I was so thrilled to become their photographer! HA! We obviously had lots of laughs at their engagement session, and I can’t wait for their wedding day! Enjoy these favorites of mine.

I am in love with the locations we visited for this senior session, and Taylor was an absolute natural! Funny story: I was asking my husband earlier that week for an idea of location for this shoot, and he told me I should visit the “colorful umbrella mural in Erwin.” I had no clue what […]

This session with handsome Collier Grant was so fun! I was instantly in love with his nursery and all the baby blues. Animals and golf (even animals playing golf) decorated his room! The Eason’s live within Keith Hills golf course, so I’m thinking GOLF is in his near future. Ha! This two months session taught […]

He thought all of my romantic poses were silly, but he hilariously played along, and we think it all turned out beautifully! He would be upset with me if I did not mention his baby girl in this post… and I’m not referring to Stevi… I’m talking about Loretta, the pup wearing the hot pink collar that reads “Will you marry Daddy?”

I always love to photograph little Rowan. This was his 6 month session, and we decided on a family-owned property near Roseboro, and it was absolutely gorgeous! There are wide hay fields all around, a small pond with a wooden dock, and large silos in the distance. I was gushing as soon as I pulled […]

Two days ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Hilary + Will, as they soon welcome their son, Caden, into this world! These two are so sweet and soft-spoken; it was a joy to see them open up a bit and have some moments to themselves in front of the camera. They were naturals! We […]

Fun Fact: These newborn photographs were made RIGHT ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR. Ha! Granted, I had some pillows and blankets, but that’s where the best natural […]
