Welcome, Georgia Ruth! I actually went to high school with Sunni and Tyler. They are so sweet and have the cutest home and little family. It’s very fun to see old friends grow through life, and get to be the one to capture special moments for them! Georgia’s big brother, Harrison, wasn’t as thrilled for […]

I had so many laughs with the Core family! It had been a long time since they’d had photos together, and we laughed at how awkward it was at first. We laughed at how nervous their dad was, the photogenic dog, the height differences (hehe)… We had so much fun, and they didn’t even have […]

Maggie & Chase were the sweetest and most genuine couple! She told me prior to their engagement session that she wanted a location with lots of trees and vintage-looking, and I knew just the place! The Historic Oak View County Park is one of my favorite spots for engagements, bridal portraits and family portraits. It’s […]

Welcome, Virginia Gray! How lovely, vintage and chic is this little girl’s newborn session? I was in love from the moment I stepped into her nursery! The Kemp’s were so kind and accommodating. We shot the second half of this newborn session downstairs in their office, technically. The lighting and decor were perfect for some […]

*Sigh!* The most stunning lake wedding I’ve had the privilege and honor to capture thus far in my photography career. This wasn’t my first ‘session’ at White Lake, but it was my very first wedding, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out! Even though the weather took a stormy, windy turn […]

This past weekend’s maternity session with Kaitlyn & Martin was one to remember! It’s not often that I’m asked to travel to White Lake, so I was super excited when Kaitlyn suggested it. It did not disappoint! They are expecting their first son in October (hence the gorgeous blues!) & I’ll be sharing those newborn […]

I’m so fond of the Eason’s! I’ve photographed this sweet family multiple times, and I’ve loved watching their family grow over the years. I remember when this pink nursery was full of blues for Collier. Now, it’s chic and pretty-in-pink for Sutton Grey! Absolutely beautiful. Enjoy some of my favs!

Hannah’s bridal portraits literally take my breath away. This was my first session at White Lake, and I was soooo nervous! I wasn’t sure what to expect, and it was a tremendously sunny day, making finding a spot to take these even more challenging. BUT I trusted my gut and let the sunlight gleam over […]

Sunni reached out to me and wanted a quick session in our local park for baby announcement photos. We met around 6:30pm and the lighting was absolutely gorgeous! Their adorable little boy, Harrison, was a ball of energy and uninterested in having his picture made… but he was so fun to chase after, and you […]

Simple, boy-ish birthday portraits in the woods? Yes, please! Anderson rocked his Two Year session. He was so sweet and shy, but I enjoyed letting him wander around the woods, capturing smiles whenever I could. & look at those adorable curls! Keep scrolling to see Anderson’s “creepy mouse.” Here comes the creepy mouse! & you […]

It was so great meeting Katie and Storm at their engagement session at Surf City, NC. Doesn’t it look like the whole beach was empty just for them? I’ll leave you to wonder… These two were shy at first, but I loved watching as they leaned into one another and just enjoyed themselves! I cannot […]

Hannah and Blake had the most dreamy, sunset engagement session out in the country! I love when my wedding couples take advantage of their complimentary engagement session because it’s a great time for us to get to know each other and shake the nerves of being in front of my camera. I don’t think these […]

Katie and Jacob were so sweet to photograph! You can’t even tell that they were nervous in front of the camera (hehe). One thing I love to admire is how my couples just click together. Even if they’re nervous, they lean into each other and laugh through it, and it’s the most adorable thing ever!

This was one of my first weddings at the Barn at Broadslab in Benson, NC. Now, it’s become one of my most frequented venues for weddings!

I am absolutely in love with this maternity session, and I’m still gushing over the location! This was actually another client’s relative’s home where I’d shot a previous family session, so I asked if we could revisit because I knew it would be perfect for Caitlin and Eli. I’m so happy they let us use […]

“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.

These two beautiful humans are some of our greatest friends, and I’m sooo honored to have photographed this amazing day for them! This was the best “backyard” wedding ever. I told Lindsay, “this was better than a $10,000+ wedding!” Travis and Lindsay were surrounded by their families and close friends, and every moment throughout the […]
