THE Raleigh NC Newborn & Family PHotography EXPERIENCE

Being moms ourselves, we know how fleeting these moments are. One minute they’re teeny tiny in your arms and the next they’re speaking in full sentences.

That’s why we love photography. A single precious moment, gone in a second, but captured in a photo forever.

We also know how stressful capturing these moments can be! Which is why we offer a full-service experience so that you can truly enjoy the process with your family!

It's cliche, but babies don't keep.

A.J. will set up a time to meet with you on the phone and begin to design your dream session.

She will assist you in full session planning: location, style, wardrobe planning, hair & makeup scheduling (if desired) and will begin the process of planning for your heirloom art pieces!

Step One

Carter or A.J. will photograph your session either in your home, on-location or in-studio. Sessions are individually tailored to your needs and are always a fun & relaxed time! We'll pull out all our special tricks to keep your kids happy and engaged.

Step Two

We will edit your images and send you a proofing gallery to review while we schedule your heirloom art design appointment!

This allows you to get comfortable with your images and start envisioning them in your home before you make final art choices!

Step Three

The best part: your design appointment! 

This is where the vision comes to life and we create the pieces you've been dreaming about! We do this virtually or in-person.

Step Four

We deliver your pieces and they are yours to enjoy for the rest of your life!

We oftentimes stay in touch with our clients and always cherish when someone chooses to return for more heirlooms. 

Step Five

Yes! This is what I want!

Kind Words

A.J. and her team have been there through all of our biggest milestones, starting with our engagement photos and wedding photos in 2013. Since then, we have had countless family mini sessions with her and Carter, along with newborn photo shoots for 3 of our babies.

What I love most about all of the photos A.J. and her team take is that they aren’t forced or over staged. Their photography approach is natural and authentic. Whenever I look back at the thousands of pictures they have taken for us, I am immediately taken back to those specific moments in time. After each photo session, I always tell A..J that I need to build a bigger house because all of the photos always turn out so beautifully that I end up framing so many of them and I am now running out of wall space! We are so grateful for all of the priceless photos A.J. and her team have taken of our family over the years and look forward to many more in the future!

I cannot recommend Carter enough! She has photographed our family for the last 5 years and she always seems to capture such beautiful images; but what stands out the most is her ability to make my kids personalities shine in the photos she takes. Carter is wonderful with kids and makes the whole process easy and stress free. The photographs she has taken are one of my greatest treasures.

A.J. was a true gift for our newborn photography. A.J. not only delivers beautiful images but she brings a calming presence to the session. My husband and I are not natural in front of the camera but he always comments on how relaxed she made us feel and captured the sweetest moments. He recommends her to all of our friends. We can't say enough great things about A.J. (and her family photographer, Carter, to capture as the little one grows). She will always be our newborn photographer and friend!

Carter is a dream to work with. She has been taking photos for my family at every stage of our lives, and I can’t imagine using anyone else. Even when my toddler isn’t cooperating, Carter will get the shot! She is not only an incredible family photographer, but she is an outstanding person and friend.

Words cannot describe how incredible our newborn photos turned out with A.J! Every single photo turned out beyond perfect! She was so patient throughout the entire process to ensure the memories of our little one were captured. Cannot wait to work with her again in the future for all of our family photos.
