This little dude was sleeping like a baby! This photo session took place in the client’s home. I used natural light coming in from a window that was camera left.

This is my best friend and her family at the Oceanana Pier in Atlantic Beach, NC. The Pier is a popular spot for photos because it adds an architectural element and cool colors to contrast with the ocean. This was a windy day and the ocean was really kicking up. This made for a really great background.

I photograph in Atlantic Beach, Pine Knolls Shores and Emerald Isle on the beaches of the glorious Crystal Coast. I also photograph in Morehead City, Newport and Beaufort along the Intracoastal Waterway.

I have been having so much fun going through my photos from the past year and adding them to my site. Here is a quick preview of some of the photos that will be added.

A baby’s first year goes by so quicky! One minute you’re cradling a tiny newborn in your arms and then the next minute, you’re chasing after a walking, talking one year old. I was lucky to be chosen to document the first year of Cate’s life.

We started out taking photos of her big sister and big brother holding her sonogram picture on the Greenway Bridge in Morrisville, NC. I remember thinking it was the first picture of all 3 kids together! Then I did her newborn pictures when she was just 3 days old, all wrapped in pink and already a snuggler. At 9 months, when she was sitting up and even posing, I took her pictures outside, along with the rest of her beautiful family at the lake in Morrisville, NC. And just last month, for her First Birthday, we did a mini-portrait session and a Cake Smash at a historic site in Cary, NC.

I have tried this before. I have started a few blogs but I never kept up with them. Well now I have this fancy new website, and I have a big ol’ button on my home page that says “blog”. So I will be blogging my sessions and writing about my amazing clients more often!

So here is a test. I am going to blog a special session I did in December.

In January, the adorable Macklin (aka Macks) was born. I did his mom’s maternity photos so I was really excited that I got to do his newborn photos. His mom and dad are so in love with him, and I felt so lucky that I had a chance to cuddle him, too. I expect great things from this little guy.
