It doesn’t get much better than 60 degrees in February on the Outer Banks. Elizabeth & Jacob¬†have a very strong, very powerful Christ centered relationship. You can almost feel the love between the two of them through the photos which is what I love the most about this session.

Loved hanging out with this local Outer Banks couple for a laid back session with their sweet new guy Brice. The plan was to try to get shots of B sleeping and more “newborn” type photos but as I know with babies of this age you can’t plan for anything. We pulled dad out of […]
