Winnie | Durham Newborn Photography | Durham, NC

I can already tell you that this little lady has so many people spoiling her! Seriously, those cheeks are the cutest thing I have seen all year. We split this session up in to two sessions; one at the hospital when she was 1 day old, the second in her home right at 1 month old.

I especially love the ones of Winnie and her dad. Those, to me, are the sweetest and show so much love between a new daddy and his little girl. I love them all, I can't just choose one. BUT I do think the Harry Potter themed one is a good contender.

Jayme and Elliott | Asheville, NC Engagement

Let me just start this out by saying that I think I may be the one that fell in love with Jayme. Not even kidding, I think the world of Jayme and am completely smitten that we are working together in anticipation of her and Elliott's wedding! Gah, I have the best clients in the world!

Earlier this year Elliott took Jayme to the one place that she'd always wanted to go and relax for the weekend; The Omni Grove Park Inn. It is this magical hotel that has huge firepits, an amazing sunset view, and the best view of downtown Asheville anyone could ever dream of! He proposed on one of their terraces, and the rest is history. So romantic, right?! It was only fitting that we go back and revisit the one place that they cherish so deeply.

We started off the day with a walk around their golf course, then scurried inside just in time for some much needed coffee (if you know me, you know I like to start sessions early!). We sat outside and took in the view, and I could only imagine how these two felt during that time. What a treat to go back, it was a beautiful day and I had gorgeous subjects in front of my lens.

After adventuring the hotel, we hopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway and found the prettiest little outlook with gorgeous mountains to boot. Below, please find some of my favorite images from our time there!
 

Family Fall Portraits | Raleigh, NC

It is not every day that you get to photograph this kind of beautiful family. On top of it all, they brought their adorable pets (both cat and dog). Eek! Oh my word, they were the cutest thing I ever saw! You may remember Kat and Mason from their anniversary session with me last year. Each year we do a photo shoot around the time of their anniversary. This year, we included Kat's parents.


It was a beautiful day! I am so excited to show you these images. I think the best part about this session was actually photographing an actual cat in family portrait style! Also, Kat's parents are the sweetest! Love love love the images I captured of just the two of them! All in all, this was a great day and was so excited to do this for them!


Enjoy!

Kelsi | Outer Banks, NC | Somerset Place Bride

I have to admit, Kelsi's bridal session is one of my favs! We started off the day in Belhaven, and literally ended it in the northern part of the Outer Banks. As most of you know, I am originally from northeastern North Carolina, so when Kelsi gave me free range to photograph her wherever--I took her to some of the most gorgeous places in North Carolina (they just so happen to be in OBX, ha!).

I love these images of Kelsi. She has such a kind soul--not like the old lady kind of soul, but the soul that inspires you, pokes at you to create and invigorate. It's like a breath of fresh air around her and its unbelievably infectious. I am so thankful for this young lady. I can not wait to hear your thoughts on her bridal session!
