Boardwalk Mini-session - so fun! | Carolina Beach, NC Photographer

It was a cold morning - but everyone came out with the best attitudes! The families were full of energy and full of smiles! This is just a quick share of Saturday's families - I plan to showcase each family in a few days. The boardwalk was a perfect place to go - lots of texture, color, and fun!

Check back tomorrow to see the families from the State Park!!

Meet Vance | Wilmington, NC Baby Photographer

What a beautiful family! Dad had to go to work, so we got a couple family shots for their Christmas card - and got scolded because we weren't really supposed to be there - oops! It was a beautiful location, anyway! I love sweet look on Vance's face here - about as close to a smile I got the whole session! Guess you know what makes him happy - being super close to mom and dad!
Mom was really looking for some timeless portraits. Although we did it in her house - she really wanted the full focus to be on her sweet boy. Luckily there was some BEAUTIFUL light in her bedroom - so that's where we set up shop! With his favorite blanket - he really does love it - and loves to chew on it - I love his little glance here.

I love this one!!! Even though we tried and tried for smiles - he kept giving us the sweetest looks - how can you not love it! I love his little ringlet! When we first scheduled the session, we were worried that he wouldn't be sitting up on his own very well. Ummm - little did we know he'd be crawling and pulling up and fully on the move! He was FAST! I love the way his little dimple shows up as he's smiling at mom!
Sometimes serious is ok, too. I love, love, love this one!!!!
Thanks so much for such an awesome session! I can't wait to go through the rest!

Meet Willow - 12 days old | Wilmington, NC newborn photographer

What a sweet, sweet, baby girl. When I got there - she was already asleep - and since mom remembered to have her already undressed - just wrapped in a blanket - I was able to get right to work.
She even tolerated me getting her unwrapped - which we didn't think she was going to like - but oh, isn't she sweet!
Here she is laying in daddy's arms - I love seeing her little eye lashes - but I think I love her little pinky sticking out even more! And it's a good thing I took advantage of her sleepy time when I first got there - because it didn't last long. After replacing many, many, many blankets due to newborn pee and poo - she was wide awake. Which is ok, too - because I love newborn eye-contact. Oh, and check out her red hair!
Now, this image intrigues me - and it might be one of my favorite newborn images! She is hanging out with mom - sitting up in her arms - "looking" out the front door. The light coming in is beautiful - she's slightly sucking her lower lip - her sweet hand in front of her - I love all of that - but there's something about the way she's looking that gives me goosebumps. I don't know what it is. What do you think?
Brett and Joy - congratulations on your first child - I'm so excited for you! Thanks for the opportunity to photograph this beautiful time in your life!

Beautiful Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

Is it possible that a family can just keep getting more and more beautiful every time you see them? Well, I think so! I met this family when Melissa was pregnant with Liam - she was one of my first clients. Mom wanted a more "rustic" session - I scouted out a few different locations - and we ended up going with Poplar Grove - so many different nooks and crannies to use!

Well, now Liam's 2 - and big sister Ella Rose is 4 - and man - these parents better watch out!
Cute, cute, and more cute! Those beautiful blue eyes, sweet little smile, baby blond hair, backwards hat.......sigh.
I love this one of Ella Rose. So happy and alive.
Mom asked questions about what to wear - and I recommended she find something from Ella Rose's closet - and coordinate the rest of the family around that one outfit.....Mom did good - real good! These outfits are stunning in color or black and white!
Just a sweet smooch while moving to a new location - I love the puckered lips!
It was near the end of the session - the kids were pretty much done - but we wanted to try to get just a few more of them together. I love this!!!
Mom and Ella Rose were singing a song together - I love how they are looking at each other. Pure love!
Sometimes you really want smiles - and sometimes, well, seriousness works really well, too. These children are so beautiful - smiling and not!
Thanks for such an awesome session! I can't wait to get through the rest!

My Love!
