Baby Eden | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, August 30th, 2013

This sweet little baby, Eden, came to me at just six days old for her session.  I met her Daddy when we filmed HGTV’s House Hunters.  He was the cameraman and such a great guy.  My kids think he’s REALLY cool because he let them hold his big camera a few times. 🙂  They were SUPER jealous that I got to see him for Eden’s newborn session.  And I was so excited that he came to me for her first portraits.  She was so cute and tiny, and did magnificently for her photos.  Here’s a little sample of them — don’t you just love the little lips and toes?  Those are my favorite!!

Baby Isabella | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, August 26th, 2013

I hope everyone has been enjoying their last week of summer like I have!  My oldest son starts Kindergarten this week, and then my youngest is off to pre-school right after Labor Day.  So we fit in a trip up north to visit relatives, along with a little time to unwind right before the busy-ness starts back up again!  I’ll miss them once they’re back to school, but secretly I’m excited to get back into a routine!  🙂  And if you’re interested in getting on my calendar for the fall, I have just a couple of openings in September, and October is almost fully booked.  So please contact me soon if you’d like a maternity or newborn photo session this fall!

This is little Isabella, who came to me at just seven days old for her first professional photo session!  She was such a cute little baby, and we did a ton of set-ups and had lots of fun photographing her!  Her Daddy is a baseball player, so we planned accordingly and incorporated a photo with his glove and ball.  It was a great set-up and I’m sure it meant so much to her Daddy to see his little baby girl with his treasured items!

Baylor | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

This handsome little guy is Baylor, and he’s about to have his first birthday!!  He happens to also be my nephew — you saw his newborn portraits here.  It’s so hard to believe it’s been a year!  He has the best personality – so sweet and easygoing.  And that strawberry blonde hair is just to die for!  He came to visit me a few weeks ago and we just had to give him a photo session to capture this last little bit of his baby phase.  You’ll notice the pancakes on his shirt… there’s a story behind that.  He’s having a first birthday breakfast party, so his Mommy wanted a photo of him in his pancake shirt to include on the birthday party invite.  Isn’t that a cool idea?  I just love this little guy and loved getting to photograph him again!!

Emily’s Maternity Session | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST MATERNITY & BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Emily and her husband James met me in Wake Forest for their maternity session.  Emily opted for one of my new maternity mini-sessions.  We spent about thirty minutes getting a lot of cute photos of her cute pregnant belly, and of her and James cuddling!  And then they received a disc with 20 photos – perfect for printing, making an album, or sharing with family.  Emily and her husband were so sweet, and their first baby is due in about 2 weeks — I can’t wait to meet her!  So happy for them!  Here’s a peek at a few of their photos!

Cute little Reese was 10 days old for her newborn session.  You may remember her parents and their three dogs from their maternity session back in May.  I was so excited to meet little  Reese.  And she was so sweet and perfect for her session, just as I’d expected!  Here’s a little peek at her photos! 🙂

Arden Turns One | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

I’ve so enjoyed seeing Arden grow up this year — you all probably remember her cute little self from her 3 month and 6 month photo sessions.  Her Mommy is a dear friend, and I was so excited to work with her to create a specific magical photo to match her first birthday party theme.  Hot air balloons!!  Unfortunately it rained on and off DURING our session, so it put a damper on it all, but we managed to pull it off and got some beautiful photos of Arden!  I’m excited to share these with you.  And so sad that Arden is no longer a baby… booooo!  🙂
