How does it happen?! And why so fast?! It seems you were just learning to crawl and now kindergarten is only months away. Although saddened, I LOVE watching you grow, and change, and learn, and become your own little independent person. I love you baby girl, and you will always be my baby no matter what number you are <3
I remember asking mom last year at Addison’s 2-year session if they wanted any more children. And now, a year later, they have the most handsome little boy to take his place in the family <3 Such a doll baby, with the most beautiful silky black hair! And boy did he NOT want to miss a thing during his session! The only plus of an awake baby is that mom gets a nice long nap/break after the session is over :) Oh, and Miss Addison! The first quick shot of the morning as she glammed up for her big session. Such a wonderful family to watch grow.
Photography chose me. I was born with a love of recording moments. As a photographer, I can perfectly capture a fleeting moment, a flood of emotions, a thousand tiny details. Words just can’t describe everything that swirls in my mind when I look at these three images of me and my daughters. The details, the smells, the warmth of the sunshine, the overwhelming joy…no words are needed as these images capture and hold a thousand words that I will surely never forget.
Leah has the perfect little baby (I mean, big girl :) features all rolled into one adorable little girl! From her stunning blue eyes and porcelain skin, to her silly and happy little sayings, she is such a joy to be around! Her session marked the warmest day of the month, and she was ready for spring! I love summer-dress-bare-feet sessions <3
I love my clients. I will say that each one is my favorite and that they are all the most adorable, and the truth is, they are! I adore each family for a very special reason, and Sophie and her family are no different. I have a *very special* place in my heart for little Sophie and her amazing mama, Paige. Sophie was just a bitty baby when I first photographed her and her family. It was my very first session in Raleigh since moving from California. It was FREEZING cold and pouring out, but they were ready to go. They were SO CUTE all bundled up, and some of the images I took that day remain my all-time favorites (I will have to get them up here!). Thank you, Stein family for your continued support and encouragement over the past 2.5 years! My heart is full <3
I adore the song American Honey by Lady Antebellum, and for some reason it always come to mind when I go through images of siblings from summer sessions <3 I also adore these sweet-darling-giggly-happy-adorable sisters and get *so very exited* when mom books a session for them! This makes me ready for summer for sure :)
I had the honor of photographing Carson as a newborn six months ago. It will always amaze me how much a baby can change in six short months. This little cutie gave me a new and fun face with each click of the shutter :) I just had to put together a little collage of all of his fun faces and gorgeous smiles <3
