I am feeling beyond blessed today! I was part of a traveling dress project, and with the time it took for the dress to get to everyone in our group at different places around the world, it's been a year in the making! I'm so excited to see it published!
A huge thank you to Emily of Bella Navi for heading up this group, all the group members for working their magic and making the dress's story so special, thank you to The Traveling Dress Collective for starting everything and inviting others to be a part of it, and to my models Brooke & Edward and Stephanie & James!
Check out all the beautiful photos and all the amazing photographers!
Before their session, I asked Courtney and Webster if there were any must have photos they were looking for and they replied, "Just photos that capture how truly deep our connection is. We get lost in our daily lives sometimes so it's not always front and center", and I think we captured it well!Read more

I had such a wonderful and intimate session with these two at Wrightsville Beach! Amanda really wanted to do something special for her husband, Michael, so this was a surprise for him! Not only are these gorgeous people super in love and not afraid to show it, but their love radiates from the photos we captured! I enjoyed every second of editing this session and my heart is full!Read more
Thank you so much to Bella Navi for featuring us again on the blog!

The LaVigne family's session took place at Greenfield Lake in Downtown Wilmington, NC. I had such a wonderful time photographing this super sweet family; Cynthia and Simeon are so down to earth, and 6-month-old Sofia has a smile that just fills your love tank! I felt so at home with them that I didn't want our session to end, and I kinda kept them a little longer than they probably had planned for. Sophia fell asleep, the park lights came on, and I was loving every second of our time together! (I even got to hold sleeping Sophia in one arm while taking some couple portraits of Cynthia and Simeon with the other! I was definitely getting my baby fill! ) Besides getting all the smiling and interacting photos that I often get at sessions, we got some beautiful, quiet, full-of-love moments that just melt my heart! This session has meant so much to me, and was something I really needed to photograph. Thank you, LaVigne family. I can't wait to have another session with you. <3

It was so wonderful meeting and photographing the Stanley family while they were vacationing in Kure Beach, NC! It was quite a windy day, but we didn't let that stop us. We got some fun family photos, and had a great time!

Jacob is the star quarterback at Ashley High School and will be graduating this year and heading off to ECU. Before he goes, he and his mom wanted to get some senior portraits representing his love for football and his love for family.
We headed down to his school field which seemed to be the perfect environment for Jacob, and we made an adventure out of it! After getting some senior and sibling portraits with his brothers, Joc and Sean, we found ourselves to be locked in! After searching for a way out with no success we ended up doing a little climbing, squeezing, sliding, pulling, and laughing our way to freedom! I had so much fun with this family and I’m so looking forward to next time!
Madison and Joc are one of the sweetest couples I’ve had the pleasure of photographing; I am so honored they chose me to capture their togetherness on prom night, and I think it was perfect that they chose downtown Wilmington for their session!
You may notice that a handful of the more recent blog posts were all posted recently but aren't exactly new, or that your session was recently posted but done a while ago- I had fallen way behind on blog posts, but am all caught up now, and I will try to keep it that way. As always, thanks for looking; and thanks for keeping me so busy! ^_^
This is a shorter post than usual, but I just wanted to share a special portrait of one of our sugar gliders. This is Waffles. Waffles has a crazy personality, loves his sleep, loves soft things he can wrap himself up in, and long walks inside your hoodie! He also likes to pose for photos! So here he is, one of our “fuzzy loves” as we call them… <3
