Tyson | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST CHILD AND BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

This beautiful family came out for my mini-sessions a few weeks ago. I hadn’t seen Tyson since his 3-month session back in March.  I can’t believe how fast he’s grown this year and how much he’s changed.  He’s seriously SO sweet and I just adore him and his family!  Here are my favorites from our session, and a little sampling of what you can expect from a mini-session with me!

Lorelei | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Oh, how I LOVED this session.  First of all, I haven’t photographed a single baby with the name Lorelei.  EVER.  But, why in the world not?!?  I just LOVE IT!!!!  There needs to be more Lorelei’s in this world.  And second of all, Lorelei’s sweet Mommy brought along HER mom from Louisiana to the session, so we had three generations in the studio.  And lastly, 7-day-old Lorelei gave me the biggest smiles I’ve EVER seen on a newborn. Thanks for totally making my day, Lorelei! You’re so sweet and wonderful!

Just a scheduling note: I’m completely booked up for the remainder of 2012 for family and child photo sessions. I do have a (very) few openings for maternity and newborn sessions for 2012. I already have many 2013 due dates on the calendar, so PLEASE contact me early to reserve your space, because I hate to turn people away!

Dylan Turns Five | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY AND CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Today my oldest son, Dylan, turns five.  It’s a bittersweet day for me.  I love this little man SO MUCH, and it hurts my heart that he’s growing up.  He’s so sweet and sensitive, and by far the funniest kid I know!  I’m so impressed by him and proud of him.  I love him more than life itself!  Happy birthday, Dylan!

Wesley and Harrison | Twins | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Sweet little twin boys, Wesley and Harrison, met me a few weeks ago in the studio for their newborn portraits.  They are just so precious and perfect!!  There’s really something special about a set of twins, something so fascinating and amazing to me.  It’s always a delight for me to be able to photograph twins.  Wesley and Harrison are participating in my Baby’s First Year Plan, so I’m  thrilled to get to watch them grow during their first year!

The Paris Family | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

The Paris family came out a few weeks ago for my annual mini sessions.  Jennifer is a photographer herself, and it was seriously the ULTIMATE compliment that she asked me to take her family photos.  She has the most well-behaved kids — honestly!!!  Little Rylee knew just how to follow instructions, and even burst out with some Fresh Beat Band moves for me.  She also gave me a stamp after the session to say thank you — jeez, melt my heart!  And little Tyler… well, he’s grown like a weed since I met him as a newborn!  Had fun seeing you again, Paris family!!  🙂

This sweet little man is none other than my newest nephew, Baylor! Doesn’t he have the coolest name? I got the honor of photographing him when he was 17 days old. He’s a little dream baby. So sweet and peaceful. Love this little guy! 🙂

Baby Nathaniel | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

I met baby Nathaniel about a month ago (has it really been that long?) when he was just 11 days old.  He was bright eyed and ready for fun!  🙂  It’s very rare that I get a newborn who won’t sleep much for me — but I think Nathaniel was just too interested in watching me work.  I’ll take it as a compliment.  He has gorgeous eyes, and I LOOOOOVE getting photos of those cute baby eyes, so I was happy!  🙂  Here are a few of my favorites from Nathaniel’s session.

Mommy brought them matching dinosaur t-shirts. 🙂
