I love being a Raleigh lifestyle newborn photographer. There’s something about new life. It’s a whole new family. It’s amazing how quickly it can feel like life didn’t exist before this tiny new human. That’s exactly how it felt with this family. They had the sweetest family before. Just the three of them, like in […]

One of my favorite emails to receive is that a couple wants to book Wake Forest maternity portraits!!  Not much gets me excited like a beautiful baby bump! I love that the couple gets a chance to take a moment and really just focus on the pregnancy and how soon their little baby will be […]

I got to take pictures of a family with a pet bunny!!  It was absolutely the cutest thing and very clear that he was his mama’s first baby until his brother Samuel came along.  Watching Samuel […]

The biggest compliment is when a fellow wedding vendor asks you to photograph them. It’s so humbling, and I never take it for granted that they chose me.

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 […]
