2010 Holiday Mini-Sessions | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

I still have some spots available for this weekend's holiday sessions. Please know you can pay a deposit of 1/2 the session fee, $150 to hold your session, and the remaining balance is not due until you are ready to place your order - around the first of November.

Waiting for Jack | Wilmington, NC Maternity Photographer

This little boy is already so loved - I can't wait to meet him and I know the rest of the family can't either. I say "rest of the family" because this is my family, too. Justin is Eddie's cousin, and in his family in-laws are not out-laws, so he's my cousin, too! Callie and Justin made the trip from South Carolina for our beach session, and once Jack arrives, I'll make the trip down there to help them celebrate. Callie is absolutely glowing - she's gonna be such a great momma and Justin is oozing love for his beautiful wife - I can only imaging what's gonna happen when he lays eyes on his baby boy.

Thanks so much for asking me to be a part of this amazing time in your life. I look forward to photographing Jack as he grows up. If he's anything like his mama and daddy - he's going to be a great model for me!

Life Celebrated at the Arboretum | Wilmington, NC Photographer

Well, a lot of firsts for me during this session. Inspired by my friend Angela - and amazing photographer in the Bay area in CA, I really wanted to try my hand a including video during a portrait session. Luckily I was working with an amazing family and didn't mind the patience it required as I tried to figure it out as I went along. I kept pressing the wrong buttons on my camera - def. a learning curve. Then I had to figure out how in the world to EDIT video - I've never done that (and as you can see there are some spots where I didn't get the video length quite right). I will go back and play some more with making the video blend in a bit better, but Karla's been waiting long enough! Then is is my first time incorporating any kind of slideshow into my blog. I'm a little giddy - a little feeling like pulling my hair out at this whole process - but mostly giddy. I can see this really working for some of the families I photograph - especially "day in the life sessions".

Oh, and the slideshow is a little blurry here - because I really wanted everyone to see it a bit bigger - I promise all the images and even the video is nice and sharp!

Karla - thank you again for letting me play during our session. You guys were the best!

My Love!
