Returning from a bit of a blogging/FB hiatus the last few months! I’m looking forward to sharing some images of the beautiful families I connected with recently. This sweet little babe was an angel. I first photographed her family when her older sister was a newborn. And now we welcome their third. . . I always feel honored to document this magical time for families. Welcome sweet thing!!

Without a doubt, one of the delights of my biz is watching families grow. I first met this couple a few years ago when I did their engagement photographs, and I was so happy when she got back in touch to say they had a little one. Lucky me :0) This little guy was such a beauty, just like his parents. And a sweet, happy little guy. . . well, most of the time lol. He did have a moment or two and I was sure to capture that too, which made for a favorite Christmas card!

I already knew that this dad was an amazing artist and was thrilled when he and his wife commissioned me to photograph their new babe. And then I pulled up to their beautiful home, a work of art itself. A pretty fabulous backdrop for a newborn session! But in the end not what you really see in the images. . .

Someone asked me once what inspires me most in my photography. I photograph a wide range of subjects so I had to think about it for a minute. But in the end, no question, inspiring it all is Love. No matter the backdrop, that’s what shines. And I will admit I sometimes get a little love buzz during my sessions. . . This is one of those sessions. All of that sweet love swimming around. . . love for each other and their perfect little babe . . . it’s like a wonderful tidal wave that spills over me and fills me up. And there’s no other place I’d rather be than photographing that love. So, thank you.

Let me show you what your love looks like ~ schedule a session by calling 919-360-8601 or emailing

Much light and love to you all~

I first met this beautiful family last spring. Remember big brother’s amazing brown eyes? I was back this spring again with the honor of photographing his new little sister ~ and oh my gosh, swoon . . . photographing babies is quite a dangerous business for me lol . . .

Spring has been a little nutty with the usual burst of spring sessions and then the craziness of rescheduling because of rain!! But these have all been successfully rescheduled (yay!). I now have just a couple June openings but July is booked ~ unless you are having a baby in July, then give me a call and we will find a time for that special session.

happy almost summer to all!
