Perfect Summer Light 

Wake Forest Maternity Portraits 

These two are just so sweet together, and they stayed out in the heat for their maternity portraits like it was nothing. It has been hot lately, people. Like seriously hot..like you can’t even believe it hot.I had a session last night and everyone looked stunning, but it was 90 degrees and we were cruising right along. You can tell these two just have so much fun together – so much laughter during this session. The area where we had their maternity portraits had a lot more water an usual and was a little bit flooded. The water also smelled super bad, which you know, when you’re pregnant, all smells are worse. So, this Mama was even more of a trooper. Plus, she is having twins (so exciting!) so she’s basically superwoman!

I love this location because the light is just so pretty! It’s one of the location options for our maternity mini sessions, and it’s just so pretty all year. I loved the images at the end with the rocks and the water (it was moving so fast!) It did smell a little worse out there, but the photos were totally worth it! I even had to yell a lot. Water + wind can make it hard to hear me. I was laughing so hard I was crying at our Coastal Minis because seriously, no one can hear me, especially when I’m behind the camera – ha!

We also are sending out info tonight at 8PM about all our options for Holiday minis in the fall so sign up for the newsletter for more information.

Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.

-Mary Oliver.

A baby is a dream come true… When I show up to a newborn session, I’m photographing the many prayers, dreams, hopes..all those moments that eventually led to a such a precious gift for their family. Mom + Dad may be sleep deprived and ready for a nap, (who isn’t always ready for a nap the first few months/years with a little one) but what I also get to capture is the doting on their little one…the huge love that happens in those first weeks at home bonding with this little person you have been dreaming of and waiting for. This daddy was just so precious with his baby girl, swaying her and rocking her in her favorite spot. And every time her Mama held her, she was wide awake, ready to party. Just so precious! Those two are just going to have so much fun together, getting pedicures and going shopping! This is why I love my job…I love capturing newborns personality in the first few weeks and also the miracle of new life. I have gotten to photograph so many sweet newborns this month…Looking forward to so many more in the next few weeks! If you’re due this fall/winter, and haven’t gotten on the schedule yet, contact me ASAP! We are almost full for the fall/winter month newborns!

From our 2016 Fall Minis

Booking for our 2017 Fall + Holiday Minis starts this Wednesday evening. We are so excited about all of our minis with Little Apple Styles! Booking will be opened up to the e-mail list first, so if you aren’t on the email list, sign up here! These go quick, and will be super cute + styled! These are a few examples from last year’s minis. Don’t miss all the cuteness for this year’s minis! Set an alarm on your phone so you remember to check your email at 8PM Wednesday.

How do our minis work? We will be sending out all dates, prices, and information in our email so you can have as much information as possible about who are minis are for (Is it a family mini or just the kids) how much it is, location area, and time. Ericka and I have been working together for a long time now, and you won’t believe how long even 5 minutes can be when photographing just the kids. You can read over all the different time/price/how many people options and decide what works for your family, budget + don’t forget, your Christmas Card. I know, I’m talking about Christmas cards in July, but how nice to go ahead and have your yearly photo planned + done, with a fun editorial image to boot. We strive to make our sessions unique, styled, and just plain fun – something we aren’t going to do for every session, but something we can plan for our minis. We spend a lot of time scouting locations, searching for props, and dreaming up ideas just for you.

All About Minnie

Wake Forest One Year Baby Photographer

I first met this sweet family when they came to our holiday minis. (So excited about this year’s! Booking will start wednesday! Be the first to know by signing up for our newsletter here) This sweet baby girl was just so happy for her one year portraits and giggled and giggled with her Mommy + Daddy. Her cake was just so pretty, and she sure loved putting her feet in it. She did let us know one thing for sure, she was not wearing the flower crown on her head. (And it was just so pretty!) Love all of the images of the three of them together celebrating her first birthday!

Who are the members of your family that we photographed? John, Kara, and Ivy (one)

Does your little one have any favorites? Ivy loves her big brothers and getting into anything she’s not supposed to!

What were your favorite parts of the session? I loved the candid moments captured and how there were so many emotions and facial expressions captured.

Tell me about the outfits that you wore the session. Ivy loves Minnie Mouse and so it made sense to make that her birthday theme! It has also been fun having super girly dresses and things after dressing 2 boys.

What are some words of wisdom you have for other Mamas preparing for a session? Have super low expectations and try to understand that your kids don’t understand yet why these are so important. Don’t be above bribing! Enjoy the sad or upset faces as much as the happy ones, they show all the different sides or your kids.

What baby gear has been your favorite during the baby’s first year? Baby carrier!

Do you have any pets/siblings? How do they get along with your little one? We have a cat that is the best in the world. Ivy loves to crawl on top of him and he just lays there! She makes a meow sound when she sees him!
Greyson and Ryder both love their sister, and play with her very well. She watches them intently and can’t wait to be able to run with them! They can always make her laugh!

Llama Llama

Wake Forest Baby Lamb Photographer NC 

Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.

-Laura Ingalls Wilder

    If ya’ll know me, you know I am all about the light. (Do I say this enough? Probably too much)It’s 100% the most important part of any portrait..and I am always looking at the light, how it’s changing, where it is. So when I show up to photograph something, I have a million goals, but #1 is to have everyone in the best most beautiful light. If you’ve ever been around baby lambs, they can be super bouncy and jumpy, (this youtube is an example)it’s really quite adorable. (except when poor Ericka is running to catch one and bring it back, hahahaha. She might not think it’s so adorable. Our baby lamb became a runner during this year’s set of baby lamb minis!) So really they ran the show, I laughed until I cried, rolled in the grass (like major grass everywhere all over me) and we followed them around wherever they went and my light obssession OCD just had to go along for the ride. I’ve never been able to bottle feed a lamb, and the kids LOVED it. So many giggles! The photographer in me had some glass bottles from a few years ago when Ericka and I thought we were going to have a baby lamb for a session that would be bottle feeding. Of course, these lambs were like no way, give us back our bottles! ha! The kids loved feeding the sheep and the llamas, who were super friendly. What a beautiful farm and so well taken care of. Many memories made this evening, and super thankful for a dear friend of mine who opened up their home. (And isn’t her little boy just the cutest. How adorable is the photo of him with his sheep? So incredibly sweet!)
