welcome to the blog!

I got to meet this sweet family through a friend. They had zero expectations for Finn’s newborn session, which I love because they were blown away once the gallery was delivered. I love those kind of reactions! When it comes to newborn sessions, I always use the nursery or bedroom or whatever is available. In […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

“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.

Christmas Minis have come and gone, again! I’m so thankful for another wonderful year, and grateful for every family that continues to come out and support me. I always enjoy seeing your children one year older, or meeting a little one for the first time! These would not be possible without my husband and mom. […]

Oh, Haddie! What a beautiful testimony to God’s faithfulness you are. After seven years of trying for a child, but experiencing lots of heartache, God’s promise to Rachel and Casey was finally fulfilled. Haddie is their “BEAUTIFUL JOY” born for such a time as this! Amen!

Enjoy some of my favorites from little […]

It was a pleasure meeting Rachel and Casey for this maternity session last month. I have actually photographed Rachel’s sister multiple times, so it was nice to meet a new but familiar face! These portraits were made in Falcon, NC and the location had so much to offer us. I’m getting all of the fall […]

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 […]

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 […]

This maternity session with Cara will forever be one of my favorites! This was actually my very first maternity session on the beach! I love how these turned out, and I’m so glad Cara trusted me enough to pick this spot at Fort Fisher beach. She is always down for my location suggestions, and that […]

I ventured to Fayetteville yesterday to photograph this little man, Camden! I hardly ever travel to Fayetteville, so it was nice to drive a new route, so to say! 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 […]
