N Family | Raleigh, NC Family Photographer

I had a great time taking photos with this fun group at the arboretum this morning.  My largest group to date [11] until next month when I photograph 17!  They were such great sports walking around, exploring with me as I may or may not have gotten lost ;).  What a beautiful day and family!  Enjoy the sneak peek...
I just had to take photos while they threw petals!

H 1st Birthday & Cake Smash Photo Shoot | Clayton, NC Child Photographer

I gave my whole spiel about how much I love my sweet niece last night on my business page, but I'll do it again. Man oh man do I love this girl. I can't believe that yesterday we had her first birthday celebration[s]. It seems like just yesterday I got a call at 1:48 in the morning from my mom telling me that we were driving to Maryland to meet my niece. She's just perfect and too cute for words. We did a cake smash and had lots of birthday picture fun today. She is such a sweetheart, and I'm so lucky to be her aunt! Happy [almost] birthday sweet girl! Love you!  This isn't my typical photo shoot, and I'm not really big on backdrops and studio-like photos, but when it's super cold, dark, and rainy you improvise! [Behold the power of bulletin board paper!] Here's a sneak peek into her first birthday photo shoot/cake smash!
Love you sweet girl!

K + T Maternity | Clayton, NC Maternity Photographer

I've had such a good time over the past few weeks taking photos for some of my old classmates.  I've known this lady a really long time, and I was so happy when she asked me to take her maternity photos.  I did this couple's engagement photos when I was first starting out, and I can't wait to follow their journey together. We did this shoot in the morning, and I have to admit that morning light is becoming my favorite.  It's so bright and pure compared to evening light.  There were so many good ones I had a hard time narrowing it down, but here are just a few of my favorites from this sweet maternity shoot!
