Gavin’s Six-Month Session | RALEIGH DURHAM NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

This precious little guy is Gavin and he’s a part of my Baby’s First Year package.  I was so excited to see him and his sweet family again for another portrait session.  You may remember Gavin from his amazing newborn session, and my has he changed!! He has the greatest little personality – so happy and curious.  And it was so sweet to see how much his parents adore him.  They are such a beautiful family, inside and out.  I feel lucky to get to capture this time in their lives for them. Here is a peek at their portraits!

Arden At Six Months | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

A few weeks ago sweet little Arden came back to my studio for her six month session.  I can’t believe this little sweetheart has turned six months and is sitting up all on her own!  Back at her three month photo session, all our photos were of her laying down or being propped up.  My, what a difference this new talent of hers makes!!

I had so, so, so much fun planning out this session with her Mommy, who is a dear friend of mine.  We ordered new backdrops and flooring, her Mommy shopped her heart out for adorable outfits and accessories.  IT. WAS. FUN.  Having two little boys, I don’t get to shop or dream about girly stuff too often, so this was really exciting for me.

I was sooooo pleased with how the vision came to life for this session.  Every detail was  perfect, and it all just worked so well. Between the leg warmers, those ballet slippers (oh my, cutest thing ever!!), the pink tutu…. it was all beyond what we’d hoped for.  And I think the willow tree backdrop is one of my new favorites!  I ended up with so, so many favorites from this session!  I can’t wait until Arden’s next session!

Creativity Contest | RALEIGH NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHY

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

A few weeks ago I entered a photo into a creativity contest at my favorite photography forum, Learn Shoot Inspire.  I’ve been a part of this forum since close to when it first started, about a year ago.  It’s an amazing place to talk photography and learn from other photographers.  I’ve made some great friendships there, and I’m excited about the future of the forum!

So a few weeks ago on the “Pro” side of the forum, they ran their very first creativity contest.  The topic for the challenge was Open Eyes.  I really put a ton of thought into it and tried to come up with something original and “different” for me.  The photo below was my entry – my little men being silly in the bathtub!  To determine the winner, all of the Pros at the forum voted.  And…. I won in the the Best Overall category!!!!  I think it’s made even more special for me because my peers voted for me.  I’m so excited about it!  You can see the photo of my little guys and the write-up over on the Learn Shoot Inspire blog, here.  So, so exciting!  🙂

And for those who are looking for a place to learn more about photography, please consider joining the wonderful group of ladies (and a couple of men!) over at Learn Shoot Inspire.  I really feel it’s the kindest, most knowledgeable group of photographers!  You won’t regret it.  And check their FB page for specials!

Here’s the photo! I think I may have to hang this in my boy’s bathroom!  🙂

Baylor and Katie | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHY

Monday, January 14th, 2013

I am finally getting caught up with blogging all my fall photos — just in time for the rush of babies and pregnant Mamas in January!  This is my busiest January ever, and I’m so thankful to my sweet, loyal clients for that. So, expect lots of cuteness on the blog!

Over Thanksgiving, my brother and his family came to visit us.  We snuck in a few quick photos for their holiday cards.  We literally ran outside for 5 minutes to get their family picture, and spent a whole 10 minutes in the studio to get a shot of baby Baylor in front of the twinkly lights.  I had to share them here because Baylor and big sister Katie are ADORABLE and they deserve their own special blog post.  🙂

Tate | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN CHILD AND BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, January 7th, 2013

The adorable little Tate was just 4 months old for his fall session.  He has one of the sweetest families I’ve ever met.  Not to mention gorgeous!  They really are a stunning family.  We met on a really cold, breezy day.  Which just meant they had to cuddle up even closer to one another! See you soon, Tate! 🙂

My Dylan | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN CHILD AND BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Here are some photos of my oldest.  In all his perfect silliness.  I couldn’t even begin to express to you all how much I love this little man, who seems to be changing and growing every day right before my eyes.  He’ll start Kindergarten in 2013.  ::SIGH::

Resolutions | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

One of my resolutions this year is to take more photos of my own kids.  The other day I went through my personal photos of 2012 and realized I had only about four occasions where I’d taken nice photos of my kids.  And that disappointed me.  So I’m going to try to DRAG my kids out at least once a month!  I’m sure they’ll just love it.  🙂  I also resolve to take more “everyday” pictures of them.  I swear, they do the silliest things.  And the most adorable things.  Case in point – in our driveway a few weeks ago:

 

Oh my word, it tugs at my heart strings.  This is them just being kids.  AND getting along!  🙂  So my camera will come with me more places this year.  And I hope you’ll all do the same.  Don’t miss those moments!

2012 Year In Review | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Each year I try to set aside some time to create a compilation of my favorite photos from each session I had that year.  It was really fun to go back through and remember my favorites!  I picked one photo from each family I met this year — there are sessions I’ve promised not to share, for privacy reasons, but the ones you see below are all of my favorites from those I blogged about this year.  I owe a big thank you to each of the families I met this year – you’ve all been so amazing to share your lives with me, and I’m blessed to call you my friends. I watched quite a few of your babies grow up this year, and it was an honor!

Coming up in 2013, I plan to get caught up on my blogging from all my fall sessions, and I have an extremely packed calendar for January, so I’m eager to get some new sweet babies on this blog!  Happy New Year, everyone!
