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.

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!

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. 
 

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!
 

OLD EDWARDS INN WEDDING | BRITTANY AND DAN


Wow, Brittany and Dan's wedding was nothing short of spectacular! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to photograph their beautiful, love filled day in the stunning Old Edwards Inn. A big thank you to the talented Siobhan Lorraine who invited me to second shoot for her, and to Jacquie and her team with Stunning and Brilliant Events who kept the day flowing seamlessly. There was so much beauty to take in at every turn. The backdrop of the Highlands, stunning floral art by Springvine Design,  a short mountain view filled drive to The Chapel of Sky Valley, and the love of two awesome families joining together for an epic celebration. I spent my morning with Dan and his groomsmen. Dan's anticipation to see Brittany walk down the aisle warmed my heart. Having a front row seat to witness true love on such a special day will never get old. To Brittany's surprise, she was serenaded by a bagpiper upon exiting the ceremony! He continued to play for guests and welcomed everyone to the cocktail hour, while Siobhan, Brian of Brian Bunn Films, and I spent portrait time with the newlyweds as the sun was setting. After a mouthwatering plated dinner, guests flooded the dance floor to celebrate with each song trumping the one prior by Lucas the DJ. A pom pom exit filled with cheers concluded Brittany and Dan's awesome wedding day. I wish for them that the start of their new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. is a reflection of their wedding day - a heartfelt celebration.

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER AT SUNSET | CARMELLA + NATALIE

Natalie had a vision - to capture the bond she shares with her beautiful doll of a daughter, Carmella. Everything came together perfectly for our sunset in the field. The fall light danced through the tree line and this mother and daughter duo twirled and blew bubbles with George Ezra music playing in the background. That was until I found out Carmella is a Beyoncé fan, so we switched it up. ;)

I am forever grateful when given the opportunity to capture a vision and fleeting moments of life.

TWINE + TWIG | FAMILY

The lovely sisters of Twine & Twig joined me at sunset with their beautiful families, adorned with their one-of-a-kind, hand crafted jewelry. The kids had their own signature pieces as well from the Little Twig line! 

Twine & Twig is a Charlotte based company, creating jewelry that reflects natural, organic beauty influenced by Southern roots and extensive worldly travels.

It was a pleasure to meet these ladies and their sweet families. Check out their beautiful collections!

I love families that are up for an adventure! Hiking to a waterfall or dancing in a field - making the most of life and the beautiful outdoors!
 

OWEN ON THE FARM | FAMILY OF THREE

Owen was a joy to spend the evening with at Aw Shucks Farm! He looked so handsome with his suspenders, and his hair styled perfectly :) We had the farm all to ourselves and he was able to explore the soda shop and run back and forth through the empty train car. I loved capturing his excitement over straws and apples, and watching his face light up with the sweetest smile! It's always a pleasure to photograph this sweet family.
