My scheduled session with little Baylie just so happened to turn into a cozy in-home snow day! Baylie has grown so much since I last photographed her when she was 9 months old.  We had so much fun playing school with her stuffed animals, playing in her dress up closet, taking a quick step out into the frigid cold and of course getting some snuggles in with her fabulous Momma, Mollie of Glimmer Hair and Makeup.  Can’t wait till the next time I get to hang with these lovely ladies!

A couple months back I shared an elegant maternity session of a very special couple in our lives – Briana and Zach – who moved here to NENC with the Coast Guard earlier this year.  We’ve come to love these people and feel pretty darn special that they have graced us with an extra face to love in the Manning Family! Baby Roslyn was born December 5th and is perfect in EVERY way. We had some fun over the Christmas holiday taking some photos to document this special time with their tiny new person!

(P.S. The adorable and super cozy pants are from TheElephantPants.com!)

Bethany and Grayson met through a study abroad trip through their college.  They met in the RDU airport as the group set off to travel together and by the end of the trip they knew without a doubt there was something between them.  They were officially a couple later that year.

5 1/2 years later, Grayson proposed to Bethany at RDU airport – where they met.

We got to meet their beautiful faces for the first time in March of this year as we photographed Bethany’s brother’s wedding! Rachel & Josh :)   It is such an honor when we get a chance to celebrate with the same family twice!

Bethany and Grayson chose to incorporate the celebration of Christmas for their day. Rose Hill Plantation‘s holiday decor was fabulous and it it was perfect for a chilly, winter wedding! A winter wedding that, in fact, got to witness the FIRST snowflakes of the year! It was quite exciting.  Bethany also wore her mother’s wedding dress which is a special thing we don’t often get to witness. It fit her perfectly. If you missed the blog post of her bridal portraits, be sure to go check them out! Lastly, the bride and groom were gifted a live painting on their wedding day! Dan Nelson began his painting of Bethany and Grayson on the alter during the ceremony and by the end of the night had completed their masterpiece keepsake.  It was stunning!

We are so happy we got to be a part of this beautiful and crazy fun wedding! The Band Punch entertained the reception party and was absolutely insane!  The best live talent we’ve ever seen at a wedding.  You’ll probably tell by the abundance of reception photos ;-)

Bethany & Grayson, we love you and are praying so many blessings into your brand new marriage!!

They met when Whitney was in 9th grade and Kendall was in 7th.  There was an instant connection between them.  Although they didn’t hang out for another 2 years, when they did – that same connection was still there!  They remained great friends for a while but by Whitney’s senior year they were an item – one that would never be broken :)

I was the lucky gal that got to photograph this love to celebrate their engagement.  Whitney’s smile has been the greatest source of joy for Kendall since the day they met and Kendall has never stopped sneaking little gestures into their day to show her his love.

I loved their laughter. Their honesty. Their humor.  Their comfort in each other.  They are a beautiful couple and their December wedding, exactly one year away from TODAY is going to be amazing!  You’ll be seeing these faces again in 1 year!

Bethany and Grayson were married on Saturday at the fabulous Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC! Their wedding was a Christmas dream!  We even got to enjoy the first snow flakes of the year. It was the perfect wedding day memory :)  A couple months ago I met bethany at Rose Hill to photograph her bridal session and I’m happy that I can finally share them with you! I know I say this a lot but light is pure magic sometimes. As it was on this day. And how about her dress!?  It is her Mother’s! They altered it a bit, removing the neck and bell sleeves but it fit Bethany like a glove. What a special gift that she shares with her Mom.

I’m happy to share Mrs. Allison with you while they are off soaking up the sun in Hawaii, and Wedding pictures will be coming SOON!

We get to photograph new love all the time and it’s always so much fun! But every once in a while we get a chance to get some seasoned love in front of our cameras too. Last week I had just that chance! Michelle and Matt asked me to photograph a couples session of them this year to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary! All those same lovey dovey playful games I like to play with our engaged couples worked just the same on these marriage pros and it was so sweet to see how much they still adore each other after 10 years! Thank you Matt and Michelle for letting me help commemorate such an important year for you both!

Laura and Ben got married last month, elopement style! We had been talking with them about a small January wedding but when Laura messaged and said they decided to elope early instead, I was thrilled for them!  We had their November engagement session on the calendar but to our joy, that engagement session turned into a post-wedding Bride and Groom shoot :)  We had so much fun getting to know Laura and Ben and documenting their new love!

They chose Colonial Williamsburg as the location for their shoot and the Fall color was most definitely on our side.  I could shoot in this area ALL the time. It’s gorgeous! As was this gorgeous couple.  You can imagine all the looks they got walking down the busy streets in their classic wedding attire.

Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of this special time for you, Mr. & Mrs. Benton!

    Louie & Claudia Reeder - Congradulations on these beautiful pictures, the two of you look so good and in love. We wish you only the best that God can give you and a long happy marriage and life together. Love you, Granny and Grandad.ReplyCancel

I have loved reconnecting with so many people this fall through adding on family sessions again! I graduated high school with Amber and got to photograph her son Conner when he was born 3 years ago.  I was so happy she invited me back to photograph She and her sweet Conner again this fall! He’s grown into such a handsome fella and we had a great time catching up and hiking around Amber’s family home in Hertford, NC.

Can’t wait for the next time!

I go pretty wayyy back with the Whitehurst Fam.. All the way back to high school actually.  Chris was my marching band instructor his very first year of teaching (I marched with the trombone if you’d like to picture that for a sec!) and my family knew Mandy and her family well through our local church community.  I remember thinking it was a match made in heaven when I heard Chris and Mandy were an item!  I’ve had the joy of documenting their growing family every few years since Gavin came into their life.. beginning with some crazy oversaturated photos with terrible angles about 8 years ago (thanks for pulling that old album out to remind me how far I’ve come, Mandy!) and then some much, MUCH more properly composed photos 5 years ago as they welcomed baby Alex to their pack.  ;-)

This year, we chose to photograph at their lovely new home in Camden doing everything they normally do as a family.  The boys play legos, wrestle with Dad, Snuggles on the couch, a little (not so normally allowed!) jumping on the bed, tickle parties and taking a walk down their neighborhood.  I love how naturally they love!  The  happiness this family exudes between each other is food for the soul and I can’t wait to get another fill in a few more years!

    Laura - Beautiful pictures of a great family who loves one another intentionally.ReplyCancel

They grew up in different parts of the country but that didn’t stop fate from bringing them together 11 years ago!  Melissa was from Iowa and James is from Warrenton, NC.  He moved out to Iowa for work and in being in a new place, knowing no one, asked a guy he worked with if he knew anyone in the area he could introduce James to.  Steven, actually knew a girl he went to church with who was about James’ age and happened to be single. Stewart set them up on a blind date and that’s how it began!

Their relationship grew and eventually it was time for James to move back home to NC.  He brought his Iowa girl with him :)

They live in the sweetest little historic home in Warrenton surrounded by many of James’ family. We photographed their engagement photos on the property of the home they live in as well as a few other places in the area that are special to their family.

I enjoyed every minute of getting to know this couple and witnessing their love!  Their wedding in April is going to be a FUN celebration!

Rarely do I get a couple who admit without a doubt that it was love at first sight!  Typically love takes it’s time growing between friends or between two people that have just met, but in the case of Abby and Dylan, they knew the night they met that they were going to be something amazing.  They were immediately infatuated with each other!

Their relationship progressed but the moment Abby and Dylan knew God had laid them out for each other was when they had to say goodbye for a month as Dylan went underway with the Navy.  Their hearts were so sad experiencing being apart for the first time and they both knew they never wanted to be apart again – Dylan knew he was going to make Abby his wife!

Abby and Dylan celebrated their wedding day at the Lands End Plantation in Hertford, NC.  The beautiful barn and open fields around the historic home were the perfect backdrop for their day.  Abby chose the prettiest hints of fall!  Beautiful burgundies accented with Navy blue and a Hot Apple Cider bar and popcorn at the reception!

We enjoyed every minute of getting to know the love Abby and Dylan share and witnessing the love their family shares for them.  We are so happy to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Wilkins!!

in May of 2016 we photographed a couple who drew near and dear to our hearts – Amanda and DJ.  Their relaxed love and joyful family made us feel like we’d be friends with them forever even though we live hours apart!  I was ecstatic when they announced not long after their marriage that they had a little one on the way!  Last week we were able to get together with Amanda and DJ for the first time since their wedding and we got the pleasure of meeting baby Clementine too! This little youngin’ ROCKED her session.  She never cried once and gave me ALL her attention.  We had to work at getting her to NOT just look at me the whole time and to interact with mom and Dad too!

We wrapped up our session and as I was giving Clementine goodbye snuggls she decided to give me a token of her appreciation, spitting up allll down my shirt, lol!  And it wasn’t just “a little” spit up, either! I take the blame though because I asked her to sit on the ground and apparently she opted to taste a leaf or two while she was down there.  It was the leaf that she decided to give back to me after the session ;-)  At least she waited until the photos were finished!

I  have to admit I’d take some Clementine spit up any day to get the photos we got!  And it had been a long time since I’d been spit up on, I reckon it was a great way to break me back into shooting family shoots :)

Can’t wait for next time, Clementine! Spit up and all!
