Megan and I are 3 days apart in our pregnancy! We are both having girls and both already have grown little 6 & 7 year old girls that are going to be amazing little helpers when these babies make their debut in the next week or two.  Our families have a lot in common these days!

We planned our shoot a few weeks back but with all this rain we’ve been getting in Eastern NC, we got rescheduled.  Then rescheduled. And rescheduled again.  Finally this past Sunday the freak 80% chance of rain decided not to show and we made an impromptu decision to meet up for our shoot before one of us pops!

Their sweet baby girl is so lucky to be coming into the world of such a beautiful family and I can’t wait to get our youngins together on the outside soon!

We are on the home stretch of our pregnancy right now with only 3 to 4 weeks to go!  We are winding down with projects, to-do lists and sessions.  I’m so thankful though that we were able to squeeze in the Lassiter family before putting away our gear!  I met with Jenna and John and their two beautiful girls for a morning mini session earlier this week and despite the INSANE mosquitos, saturated grounds and high water behind Newbold White House flooding the beach, we were still able to rock their shoot!  The girls were troopers and this family is crazy beautiful inside and out!  We are also excited to have John as the new principle at our county’s Grammar School!  We look forward to following all the blessings this family has in store for them.

We always love when we get to celebrate with the same family more than once! I photographed Brittany & Brian’s wedding back in 2012 and Jerry and I both photographed Brittany’s brother Collin and his wife Chelsea’s wedding this past fall.  It was so much fun getting to document this family’s joy twice.  I was so happy when Brittany asked me if I had availability to photograph their whole family together last week as they vacationed at the OBX!  Of course I’ll climb Jockey’s Ridge 9 months pregnant for them ;-) (It really wasn’t bad!)

We look forward to celebrating so many more milestones with this family in the years to come.  We love you, Perry’s!!

The Kelsey Family traveled together to Rodanthe last week to vacation and celebrate their parents 50th wedding anniversary year!  This milestone moment for their family was most definitely document-worthy and we’re so glad they found us and asked us to photograph them all together.  We enjoyed meeting them and look forward to the next time!

I’ve known Sydney for a long time and always drool over photos of her gorgeous family when they filter through my newsfeed, so when she asked me to document her family this summer I was giddy!!  I knew right away the shoot would be stunning but when she added that she’d like to shoot on Jockey’s Ridge it was the icing on the cake! So last week that’s what we did – we hiked up Jockey’s ridge together with her family – and my 8 months pregnant belly (whew!) – and created the most stunning memories for them!!   We adore this sweet family and are so happy to have the opportunity to share their beauty and happiness on our blog!

We love meeting new families as they vacation down at the Outer Banks each summer and documenting some memories for them!  But when one of those family members is a long distance cousin of our best friend!?  Well that just makes it even more awesome! The Knapp family was so relaxed and delightful and enjoyed every minute of cuddling with their family in front of the camera. And we enjoyed every minute of having them in front of our camera!  We look forward to seeing them again in the future!

Last week we met the Miller’s at the Bodie Island Lighthouse as they vacationed on the Outer Banks together as a family!  They have such much to celebrate this year as one of their children just recently got married, the other is getting married this year and another is expecting a baby in a few months as well!  We enjoyed meeting their happy faces and can’t wait to run into them again the future!

Adam and Hillary are proof that patience and prayer work.  They have waited on God for 5 years to allow them the chance to grow their family and finally earlier this year he answered – WITH TWINS!!  Two sweet girls! I was elated to hear their news because I knew the long journey they had been on these past 5 years and also because this means my little girl will have two sweet friends to grow up with :)  Our little lady will be born within a month or two of theirs.

We have waited a long time to schedule this shoot with Adam and Hillary and I am joining them in praising our Jesus that we finally get to present their STUNNING maternity photos!!  I mean seriously… is this Momma not the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen!?  Those are some lucky ladies to have such a beautiful Mom and Dad, inside and out.

Can’t wait to show off the little gals when they arrive, too!

Shannon and KC were gifted the coolest July day in history for their intimate Edenton NC wedding earlier this month!  The breeze coming off of the Edenton Bay was so calming and perfectly accompanied their relaxed, love filled day.  Shannon and KC first met way back in 8th grade.  Shannon had an immediate crush on him and secretly called him ‘KC Masterpiece’ because of his gorgeous eyes and thick blonde hair! She had her eyes on him all through high school but life wouldn’t bring these two together until 20 years later when Facebook reconnected them.  It didn’t take long before they were messaging and meeting, and they never looked back!

Flash forward another 7 years and here we are celebrating the beginning of the rest of their lives together as one!  They live in St. Louis Missouri right now but wanted to return to Edenton where Shannon grew up visiting her family.  Shannon told me she envisioned their wedding day being a ‘family reunion with a wedding thrown in!’ Her vision came to life on July 7th as their families gathered around them while they said their vows at the alter of the Historic Edenton Courthouse and shared a meal together in the banquet hall upstairs.

Their wedding day was filled with everything perfect! Fabulous flowers, joyful family and friends, and most of all an unbreakable love between Shannon and KC.  We’re so happy we were there to witness the beginning of their happily ever after!
