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.
 

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.

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!
 

ON THE FARM | FAMILY AT SUNSET

This family session = when everything just falls into place perfectly! Thank you to Jenny, for finding the perfect location! We had a warm, sunny evening together, chasing down horses and twirling in the field at sunset. It was a pleasure to photograph your beautiful family!

 

SUNSET IN THE TREES | JENAE + FAMILY

I love that photography provides me with the opportunity to meet wonderful new people. This sweet family recently moved across the country. Everything came together perfectly for our sunset in the park. We had a beautiful evening with the sunlight shining through the trees. Jenae rocked her flower crown and showed me her favorite spots in the park. And how perfect is mom's dress twirling in the rays of light? 
 

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.

HEATHER & MARK | MATERNITY SESSION ON THE CHATTAOOCHEE RIVER

Heather is a dear friend of mine. She is beautiful inside and out! I couldn't wait to visit her in Atlanta and photograph this special time in her life. Her husband, Mark, and their two fur babies, Chloe´ and Bella, joined us for an early morning walk along the Chattaoochee River. Heather and Mark are waiting to be surprised if they are having a boy or a girl. Before we left, they placed a rose in the river and made a wish. Heather wore a leopard print dress - her signature print!
