The ‘K’ Kids

Monday, August 30th, 2010

I had a blast spending the morning with the ‘K’ children in Raleigh. Benjamin is four and he’s so shy and sweet. He cuddled and hugged his sister so many times – he seemed to just adore her. And who wouldn’t? Two-year-old Sarah was all smiles (and silly faces) and she’s just precious. What a great family! Many thanks to their parents for choosing me to capture their images at these special ages.  It’s one of the reasons I love being a child photographer – beautiful children like these!

NC Museum of Art

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

This weekend I took some pictures at the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh. They have grounds that are open to the public and free to access. 160-something acres of awesome scenery. Art, ponds, bridges, paths, benches… the possibilities for great pictures are endless.

Contact me to book your session at the NC Museum of Art!

Jacob & Tyler

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing these sweet little boys in Raleigh this past weekend. I’ve known this family for a while, and I was honored that they asked me to do their family pictures!

We had such a good time and the evening light was fantastic. Jacob is two and did a great job smiling for me once I learned the secret code for smile – “show your teeth!” Little Tyler is just four months old and he seemed like he’d rather nap than look at the camera. In fact, he fell right asleep while I was trying to take his picture. Oh, the life of a baby!

Thanks for the fun session, guys!

Big Sister, Little Brother

Monday, August 16th, 2010

This weekend I had some fun photographing the “H” family in Wake Forest, NC. Lillian became a big sister just eight weeks ago when little Henry was born. He was such a great little boy and the two of them seem to get along so well. They’re a fabulous family!

Here’s a peek at some of their photos!

The "B" Family

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

I just love getting to photograph little girls! And these two are just the cutest. Autumn is two (almost three) and little Morgan is 15 months. They have the most gorgeous blond hair and are dressed fabulously. How cute are the green and pink dresses? Bright colors always photograph well – Mom picked the perfect outfits for them! Thanks for a fun morning, guys!

Meet Hunter. He’s 9 months old and has the most amazing eyes! I just can’t get over how beautiful they are. He’s SO photogenic. He and his family were such a pleasure to photograph. We did the session at the Children’s Garden in Columbia. What a unique little place!

Lilly J.

Monday, August 9th, 2010

You all may remember Lilly from my post a few days back. I took some photos of her right after she was born. But this was her “real” newborn shoot. She is such a gorgeous baby… and fiesty! She squirmed the entire time I tried to take her photos and wouldn’t sleep for more than a minute at a time no matter what we tried. Fortunately I managed to snap a few good shots. I hope I did her beauty justice!!

I think this first one is my favorite…

Fun With My Boys!

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

I had a session with the G’s this past weekend at E. Carroll Joyner Park in Wake Forest. It had been a while since I’d been there and I’d forgotten how beautiful it was! So I put my boys in their matching outfits and took them out there for a fun morning. Dylan had so much fun running around and swinging on the benches. He managed to be still for a couple of photos, much to my surprise!

Here’s Chase… always photogenic and a perfect little model!

And here’s Dylan looking so sweet!

The "G" Family

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

The G’s are such an awesome family. Ashley’s 2.5 years old and baby Emma’s just one month. They’re adorable and we had so much fun at our shoot! Ashley was a complete ham and loved the camera. Thanks for the fun, guys!
