Twins | Southport Children's Photographer

I'm not sure what I was worried about. We had this session scheduled for June - with the hopes that the twins would be sitting up - but as luck would have it - this beautiful setting, Orton Plantation, is scheduled to close on June 1st - so we had to improvise. The twins are not sitting up quite yet - so I was really worried about how I could prop them in such a big outdoor setting. Well, these are the most laid back babies you will ever meet. So happy and content.
Meet Ava
And Eli
And I had to share this one - Eli was so tired by the end of the session - he just conked right out while he was in this bucket. So - with a quick repositioning - of the baby and the bucket - I got one of my favorite images!!!
Thanks mom, and grandma, and great-grandma for all your help and hard work. I can't wait for you to see them all!

A new tradition | Wilmington Family Photographer

This beautiful family received a gift certificate for a portrait session from their employees for Christmas - they must be some amazing folks to work for. Dad had a cool idea for a portrait tradition: take a yearly portrait in the same place that will mark their family's growth. They suggested a local boat dock - and there were some amazing trees that would work perfect!!! I love that the youngest is reaching up to hold onto that first knot!
They really are a stunning family too look at - these all just make me smile.
Then to end the session - we went out on the boat. Sometimes I love the outtakes as much if not more than the "portraits". This was the end of the boat ride - the boys were pretty much done with the session.

Eden's 7-months old | Wilmington, NC Children's Photographer

Still as beautiful as ever - this whole family just shines. I met Eden when she was just 3-weeks old - and I just couldn't wait to see her in this new phase in her life.

We met at the arboretum - which never disappoints me in it's beauty - no matter what time of year it is. Eden has this new thing - now that she has two bottom teeth - her smile has changed - she kind of holds onto the bottom teeth with her lip and it is so incredibly cute!!!
Of course - you get her flying in the air - the that mouth goes open!

Thanks for such an awesome session!

Little Miss P - Wilmington, NC Children's Photographer

Little Miss P is visiting her grandparents for a couple weeks and I couldn't have asked for a more delightful session. This little girl is a gem - and I'm sure her parents and grandparents already know that - but WOW - what a great session. She was full of smiles as she adventured all over her grandparents' beautiful yard. Yes - all these were done on the family property. The color and beauty were amazing.

Her grandpa had a special present for her - she was showing it off!
And this is her pointing to the beloved grandpa - love, love this!
Ummmm - I love this dress.
And yes - this little one was quite the trooper - 3 outfits and still full of smiles. Here she is playing peek-a-boo with me. I could just eat her up!
Thanks for such an awesome session.

Lucky Winner - me or them?! | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

I really love family sessions - especially when the family is all about having fun! This family was the lucky winner of a family session that was raffled off at Silas' preschool a couple months ago. But really - I'm not sure who was more lucky. I had so much fun at this session - it was so refreshing. It doesn't hurt that they are all absolutely beautiful to look at, too!

Anyone else feeling refreshed after that? This is what family is supposed to be! Laughter, crazy, fun, beautiful. Sigh.

My Love!
