AMELIE'S FRENCH BAKERY | ONE YEAR OLD WITH FAMILY

Spending time with Sweet Lacey is like hanging out with a real-life-gerber-baby doll. She is beautiful! We spent a lovely evening sampling Amelie's delectable pastries and testing out their eclectic variety of furniture. Lacey just turned one!

We made our way to the park just in time to catch the sunset.

 


Quick snack break!
 


Happy Birthday, Lacey!

BABY PUPPY AND FAMILY AT THE PARK

Hook is the complete package - full of energy, love for life, and puppy breath. When I met him it was puppy love at first sight. He's incredibly fluffy and a little social butterfly! Hook is an Australian Shepard and Border Collie Mix.

His parents are fellow ECU Pirates, hence the name "Hook". This puppy is sure to grow up to be an awesome dog - but as far as I'm concerned he can hold off on that as long as he wants, because he's one of the cutest puppies I've ever met!

Hook chose Jetton Park in Cornelius, North Carolina for our play date. We played by the water until the sun went down. Hook didn't mind the chill in the air one bit.

 

 

Hook is such a smart puppy. He already knows how to sit, shake, and listens to his parents so well! He stayed right by their side while we walked through the park.

Pirate Puppy for life.
 

STERLING | FAMILY SESSION IN THE PARK

Sterling has the sweetest little personality! She greeted me with a big smile and eagerly chased and popped bubbles. We spent the morning together strolling through the park, sitting by the water, and duck hunting. Sterling found a few favorite leaves on the ground which she carried around for most of our morning together until she found the perfect home for them! It was a pleasure meeting Sterling and her mom, and capturing the sweet age of two. 
 


214 MARTIN STREET | JENNIFER & MICHAEL RALEIGH WEDDING

Jennifer and Michael invited me to share in their wedding day story on June 24, 2016. They were married at 214 Martin Street - a quaint venue on a cobblestone street in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Jennifer and I met on a Skype call and she shared her romantic proposal story - Michael popped the question during a hike at Lake Tahoe! Their dog Jazzy was a part of it, as well as a photographer that Michael had arranged to be there! Hearing Jennifer's excitement about her love for Michael and the plans for their wedding day made me so excited to meet them and capture memories for them.

The wedding day was full of laughs and dancing from Jennifer and Michael's awesome wedding party and families.

My favorite parts of their day included -

Jennifer's first look with Dad
The way Michael looked at Jennifer so lovingly the entire day
The Maid on Honor and Best Man speeches - both were amazing speakers and shared stories and jokes that had everyone laughing!

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Shelton for including me in your day! Thank you to Kiersten for capturing some great moments.

ADARA | FAMILY SESSION

Baby Adara is a little doll - she's simply perfect. Adara needed a flower crown the morning of our session, so I took a walk through my garden and made the princess a crown! Any excuse to make a flower crown - they are a favorite of mine and Adara wore it beautifully.

Adara's grandparents were visiting from out of the country. It was a pleasure to meet them and have their support bringing a smile to Adara's face. You can tell they are so proud of her!

Adara's parents are always so stylish - they are making sure the tradition is passed down. Adara has the cutest outfits and accessories! 

 

NIKKI & FAMILY | MATERNITY

I was honored to be the one to capture this exciting time for this sweet family, days before they welcomed a baby boy into their lives. Elliot was more than ready to take on the important role of big sister!
