Mary Catherine and John are married and we can finally introduce them as Mr. & Mrs. McCall!  They celebrated their wedding day at the beautiful Merrimon Wynne House in Raleigh, NC which made for the most beautiful backdrop to their day.  Jerry and I are pretty obsessed with historic homes and this one had us drooling from the moment we arrived.  Lovely original architecture around every corner! MC’s style was beyond perfect with so many unique elements, down to the hand dyed napkins and tiny potted succulents at each place setting, hexagon arbor where they said their vows and milk and cookie bar!  I couldn’t get enough of photographing this wedding day and we enjoyed every minute of celebrating their love! This wedding was also special to us because we got to photograph with our BESTEST friends Heather & Jared! They flew all the way from Oregon to meet our 5 week old baby and to help us shoot our first wedding post-baby.  We had entirely too much fun shooting together :)

We are happy to introduce Mr. & Mrs. McCall!!

It has been a whirlwind of a month! On August 20th, we gave birth to our sweet baby girl! She is healthy and happy and wrapped in the Boba sleeping on my chest as I type this.  I’m so thankful we’ve discovered a way that I can keep her content, hands free, while I get some work done because work time has officially kicked back into gear!

We photographed our first session post-baby last week and it honestly felt really good to start getting back into the swing of things again.  Back to feeling normal again after birth, and recovery, and feeling like a zombie 24/7.  Well the zombie part isn’t quite over, but at least my body is feeling much better!

I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter family to welcome me back to shooting.  Ashley, Adam and their kiddos were so relaxed and fun to hang out with and we had a crazy lucky break in the hot weather that afternoon. It almost felt like fall! We brought June with us on the shoot and she had her first poop-up-the-back blow out while we were shooting.. aww!.  Of course we forgot to bring an extra onsie with us that afternoon but luckily our friend Christina was there photographing that afternoon and loaned us a sheet from her car to wrap her in while we finished shooting. We are still re-learning all this baby business!

I’m happy to share this family and to be back to documenting so much happiness!  You might even see June tagging along with us to some of our sessions this season :-)

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!

Rodanthe Extended Family Session

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!
