This sweet couple was everything to us. They trusted us enough to fly us up to Warren, NC to photograph their Stone House Stirling Ridge Wedding.

This kid!!! Despite it being a dreary, cold, slightly rainy day, Jaxon came with the best attitude! I asked his mom if he was always like this and she said pretty much!  He quickly informed me that he loved taking pictures.  I laughed so hard when I asked if they had any other picture ideas […]

This is my year in review of being a Raleigh newborn photographer. I photographed a whole lot of squishy babies last year, but didn’t have time to blog them all. So I thought it’d be fun to do one big giant blog post with a few photos from each session, because who doesn’t love a […]
