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!
