GLOWING THROUGH THE CLOUDS | MOUNTAIN TOP MATERNITY

Spending the evening with Crystal and Greg was like hanging out with old friends. Even though we met for the first time the evening of Crystal's maternity session in Pisgah National Forest, by the end of our hike I felt like I'd always known these two.

A last minute thought just as I was leaving my house before the maternity session, I grabbed a piece of lace which had belonged to my grandmother. I had a vision of Crystal holding it wrapped around her baby bump on top of the mountain. I positioned Crystal in the perfect spot and turned to get set up for the shot. When I turned back around, a cloud had rolled through and Crystal looked like she was glowing through! The weather can change in the mountains so quickly, and this moment in the cloud made for a beautiful capture.

I wish the best of luck to Crystal and Greg on their new adventure with their first little girl!

LOVE IN SAVANNAH WITH A SURPRISE PROPOSAL

Every corner I turned in Savannah was a glorious new sight for a photographer's eyes. Color, texture, and light peeking through the historic buildings made me so excited! White jasmine climbed over walls with the most amazing smell. I picked some jasmine and combined it with some other local florals to make my sweetest smelling flower crown to date. Beautiful mom-to-be Sarah, her precious daughter Vada, and Joey with a surprise up his sleeve joined me as we walked through downtown Savannah. Expecting their new little girl to arrive soon, Sarah wanted photographs taken in Savannah as it is a special place for them. Joey had his heart set on proposing in the park - our last stop of the evening. He stayed calm and collected, but as we neared the park, his pace grew a little bit faster. We picked an open green secluded area, with stunning Southern Oak trees framing the scene. I couldn't stop smiling waiting to hear Sarah say "yes". She was so surprised and happy! The only thing that could top this moment was when Joey then turned and gave Vada her very own ring. Best job in the world to be able to capture special memories like this one. I can't wait to meet your new little girl! She sure is lucky to have you all for her family.

ENGAGEMENT AT SUNSET IN THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS

Kasie and Tate are lifelong friends and now planning their Charlotte wedding for later this year. It was a pleasure to spend the evening with these two, photographing this special time - their engagement! The rain postponed a couple of our scheduled session dates, but the third time was the charm. We had the most beautiful weather and sunset on the Blue Ridge Parkway! They were up for an adventure and the views + photographing their sweet love made for a perfect evening together. From a waterfall to a mountain top, Kasie and Tate went all out hiking to the best spots to celebrate their engagement! It's the BIGGEST compliment when Charlotte friends come to visit me in the mountains and let me show them my favorite places.

BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN | FAMILY + SENIOR SESSION

Graduation deserves to be celebrated! This family picked the perfect location to reflect their love for the outdoors and adventure and document senior pictures before graduation. I wish this style of senior pictures had been a thing when I graduated high school!  We hiked Black Balsam Knob just in time to catch a gorgeous sunset with phenomenal views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After an awesome hike, they had pizza waiting for them in their car! I knew I liked this family right away and the forethought to pick up a pizza solidified it!

PRETTY PLACE CEREMONY AND REEB RANCH CELEBRATION

Living so close to these beautiful wedding venues is an absolute dream! Since I moved to the mountains, I've connected with the sweetest photographer, Kaelee of Kaelee Denise Photography. I was delighted to have the opportunity to second shoot this intimate ceremony at Pretty Place Chapel followed by a rustic celebration at Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch. As soon as I walked into Pretty Place Chapel overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, I was overcome by a feeling of peace. I can see why it is such a popular destination wedding venue. Reeb Ranch is right down the road, and made for the perfect reception celebration. Elena of Elena Weddings & Events gave the barn at Oskar Blues a rustic elegant look with greenery hanging from the ceiling and neutral florals adorning the tables. The weather was perfect for this June wedding day. Congratulations to the bride + groom!

SPRING FLORALS AT MCGILL ROSE GARDEN

Ahh, just look at this gorgeous hanging flower arrangement created by Nectar! The magic they create with florals is guaranteed to brighten a day. I know first hand! When my husband and I were dating, he would surprise me with the most beautiful arrangements I had ever seen. All created by the incredibly talented team that makes up Nectar. He even proposed to me in Nectar's backyard - the quaint little McGill Rose Garden in Charlotte, NC. 

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph this vision for the beautiful sisters of Twine and Twig! They have an incredible eye for style! McGill Rose Garden was the perfect setting to showcase their Surf Collection.

BACKYARD WEDDING AT RITCHIE HILL

An intimate ceremony took place under the trees in the backyard of the elegant southern estate - Ritchie Hill in Concord, NC. Family gathered on a beautiful October day to celebrate Matt and Monica's wedding. I had the pleasure of meeting this couple while second shooting for the incredibly talented Rivkah of Rivkah Fine Art Photography. I met Rivkah at the Forest and Falls Workshop at Fall Creek Falls State Park. One of the highlights of the workshop was connecting with other photographers, and I'm flattered to have had the opportunity to work with her.

The ceremony is always a highlight for me when photographing a wedding. There wasn't a dry eye during Matt and Monica's ceremony as Monica walked her mother down the aisle to give her away to Matt. After the vows were exchanged, a family style meal was shared and heartfelt toasts made on the picturesque wrap around porch. A lovely fall wedding to witness!

SUN FILLED MOTHER'S DAY MINI SESSION IN BREVARD

You'd never believe the torrential downpour that took place prior to this sun filled Mother's Day Mini Session at Silvermont Park. I'm learning quickly that in Brevard, NC it can by rainy one minute and sunny the next! I'm so glad the sun came out for this beautiful momma. Her sweet little girls hugged on her and made her feel loved!

I'm grateful that I was connected with The Family Place of Transylvania County, an organization where families can connect and grow. I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful families and help support their wonderful cause by providing Mother's Day Mini Sessions.

WATERFALL ADVENTURE IN BREVARD | MOMMY AND ME

Moving to the mountains has always been a dream of mine. I feel incredibly fortunate to call the beautiful town of Brevard in Western North Carolina home! Pisgah National Forest used to be a place we would visit for a vacation - to get away from the city, to enjoy a slower pace of life and set aside time to soak in all the goodness. Now, we are lucky to have waterfalls galore practically in our backyard, and mountain views around every corner.

With the move, came the scary realization of moving my photography business to a new place and working from home. How would I meet people? Where do I start? As it turns out, Brevard is an amazingly welcoming community. I've had the pleasure of meeting many incredible people who have offered suggestions, encouragement, and friendship. Shannon invited me to meet her for breakfast at one of our local favorites - The Sunrise Cafe.   She shared with me that when she moved to Brevard, people in the community made her feel welcome, and feels led to pass that on. I intend to do the same because I can't tell you how great a feeling it is!

Shannon has the most precious little girl, Myrick. The two of them joined me for a waterfall adventure!  Mommy and Me sessions are special and intimate. I strive to capture the bond you share with your little one, showcase their personality, and document the way you interact together. I made a flower crown for Myrick to wear with local flowers and greenery from my backyard. I made sure to include some fiddlehead ferns because a mountain girl deserves those in her flower crown!

PRETTY PLACE CHAPEL MORNING CEREMONY

My first time visiting Fred W. Symmes Chapel (also known as “Pretty Place” because of its amazing view), did not disappoint! I had the honor of second shooting this special morning ceremony with Kaelee of Kaelee Denise Photography.  When I arrived at Pretty Place, I was excited to see that Allison Taylor of WNC Weddings & Events was coordinating the wedding. Both Kaelee and Allison have been so welcoming and supportive since I moved to Brevard, NC! I just love this mountain town!

BABY ALICE IS LOVED! | NEWBORN LIFESTYLE WITH TWIN SIBLINGS

Baby Alice was eleven days old the chilly spring morning that we met. She was determined to not miss a thing during our Newborn Lifestyle session together. Her bright eyes stayed open and I was able to capture some of her sweet little personality while she watched her brother and sister giggle and play close by. They absolutely ADORE her!

I met Alice's mom at East Carolina University and had not seen her in years. I was so excited to see her again and meet her beautiful family. Being welcomed into someone's home is always an extra special experience. Lifestyle sessions allow for natural moments to unfold in the comfort of your home, with dreamy natural light shining through the windows. After a little snack and some snuggles, Alice dozed off in her adorable nursery while I photographed her tiny features so her parents will have those memories forever.
 

INDUSTRIAL URBAN LOFT WEDDING WITH ELEGANT CHARM

One of my favorite things about second shooting a wedding is I have the opportunity to meet wonderful couples like Margo and Tim, that I may not have otherwise ever met. Second shooting for Siobhan Lorraine Photography is always a blast, and this gorgeous industrial urban loft wedding at the Cadillac Service Garage in Greensboro, North Carolina was no exception! For every piece of industrial character that makes up this weathered brick warehouse, there was a perfectly placed piece of greenery by Blooms and Thistle to compliment it. Everywhere you turn in this wedding venue gorgeous natural light filters in through huge skylights and tall front windows. The wedding party shared songs and laughs, prayers and tears, and a genuine consensus of gratitude that Margo and Tim were tying the knot. Thank you to Siobhan for inviting me to help you capture this winter wedding day!
 

LIAM MICHAEL | ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA BIRTH STORY

My FIRST birth story! Not only the first time I had the honor to photograph a birth story, but also my first time witnessing a baby being born into the world. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I met Jessica, the mother of baby Liam and talented photographer of Triple Crown Photography, a few weeks before her due date. Jessica was excited to have photographs of the birth to look back on the day and remember the anticipation, excitement, and love at first site meeting her son. I barely slept the night before Liam's birthday - it felt like Christmas and I was so excited to witness the birth, the emotions, and meet the sweet new baby. The day of the scheduled birth, I arrived at Mission Health in Asheville, North Carolina. Even though Liam had a set delivery time, the delivery was pushed back to make room for emergencies. At last the time came to put on scrubs and make our way to the operating room. Jessica's doctor, Dr. Jamie Ramsey, was fantastic at making everyone feel comfortable for a smooth delivery. I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing for a few moments and a smile was plastered to my face as Liam was delivered into the world. Waiting to hear his sweet cry, and then seeing the look on his parent's faces as Jessica, and husband, Mike, saw their son for the first time. I still get goose bumps just thinking about how special the moment was. Jessica kindly allowed me to share these photographs from Liam's birth. I can't wait for my next opportunity to witness another magical birth.

TWIG AND OLIVE IN THE DESERT

I pretty much floated back home on a cloud to North Carolina from my visit to Arizona! I soaked up desert sun and buckets full of knowledge that I can't wait to apply to my photography practice. From elevating my client's experience to technical camera tips, a 14 hour day spent with the photographers of Twig and Olive went by in the blink of an eye. Investing in education to continue to grow in my craft is a yearly goal that I set for myself. Having the North Carolina Arts & Science Council* choose to invest in this opportunity for me is truly an honor! North Carolina is home, and being able to bring back what I learned at the workshop and contribute to my community is one of my biggest takeaways. 

 


This project was made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, the Blumenthal Endowment, and the arts councils in Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Rutherford, Stanly, Union, and York (SC) counties.

DOUBLE THE LOVE WITH TWINS

I met Amber and Caleb at a Tree Farm when they were weeks away from welcoming their two little boys into the world. What a treat it was to be invited into their home and meet the boys when they turned six months old! They are identical but sported their own little individual personalities. They cuddled on the bed, showed me their precious nursery, and showed off their squishy rolls for the camera. I could hang out with these guys all day! 
 

BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN VIEWS | WINTER FAMILY HIKE

I had the pleasure of meeting at Andi at Hawkesdene when she photographed a wedding with me. I couldn't wait to see her again and meet her family! Her husband, precious little boy, and a new boy on the way, joined me for a short hike to a stunning view! They ignored the winter chill in the air as we laughed and explored, taking photographs along the way. It was a privilege to capture this special time for their growing family! I LOVE exploring my new area in Brevard, North Carolina. Having these stunning views mere miles from my backyard is such a blessing. Sometimes I have to pinch myself! I feel so fortunate to call these mountains home. 
 

TWINE AND TWIG | A VERY THANKFUL FAMILY

I'm very THANKFUL that I had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful families of Twine and Twig again. Their impeccable style, incredible kindness, and the cutest kids ever make them a joy to photograph! Check out the awesome behind-the-scenes drone video on @twineandtwigstyle Instagram that they put together of our session. Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" is the perfect song pick for the time we spent frolicking through the field. 

These are a few of my favorites!
 

ASHEVILLE WEDDING | NORTH CAROLINA ARBORETUM

There are so many awesome wedding venues with stunning backdrops in Brevard, North Carolina and the surrounding areas here in Western North Carolina. One that I had been looking forward to photographing at is The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC! My first visit to The North Carolina Arboretum was a day filled with beauty, wonderful vendors, and a lovely couple! I had the privilege of second shooting for the talented Julia of Amore Vita Photography.  We started our day traveling up a steep mountain road to a home with an incredible view to capture the bride and groom getting ready for their wedding day. The ladies stayed upstairs, and the men downstairs. Once everyone was ready and we arrived at the arboretum, we had just enough time for a first look between the bride and her father. These moments are so special and worth pausing for on a wedding day! After a sweet ceremony, the wedding celebration continued on a stunningly decorated grassy lawn, lit with strands of bistro lights, candle centerpieces, and the moonlit sky. The band was amazing! They had everyone on the dance floor dancing the night away. It is always a privilege to be able to help capture a wedding day for two people so in love, and even more so a pleasure when they are kind and grateful. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with so many talented Asheville vendors - Julia, Heartistree Studios, and Mary Bell Events

MOUNTAIN TOP | FAMILY AT SUNSET

Exploring mountain tops and reuniting with friends are perks of my career that I do not take for granted. We waited for the perfect evening to meet at the mountain top summit. After exchanging hugs and meeting my friend's beautiful children, we shared laughs and took in the view. Aside from an awesome evening spent together, one of the things that I will hold close to my heart from this session is one sentence that my friend told me after receiving her gallery - "If for a second you ever second guess what you are doing, DON'T." I can't wait for my next mountain top adventure, and capturing memories for another beautiful family!
