I’ve been putting this off for months. · What do I share? · How much? · When? · Do I even want to? · What will people say? Think? · Am I putting Mack at risk to be judged as soon as someone sees his photo, let alone meets him in person? The same week […]

She and her new husband, Preston, got the best weather you can ask for and they really lucked out choosing the weekend after hurricane Matthew barreled through. Watching Jessica & Preston vibe […]

I absolutely love this time of year. Being able to photograph vacationing families is one of my very favorite things to do. As long as you can beat the Outer Banks wind and heat (and canopy’s HAHA) we always manage to have gorgeous sunset beach sessions. Enjoy the Watson family.

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.

Baby J is a tiny little guy weighing in a 6lbs…of pure muscle. After we got the classic baby shots mom, dad and puppy Jetty hoped in for a few lifestyle shots of the family of four. I love how they turned out.

Going to a different location is always inspiring in the photography reign of my life but I’ve actually been going to my parents cabin for 10+ years now and hadn’t used the area to it’s full potential. I guess that’s what happens on vacation mode. During the Thanksgiving holiday we were up in the mountains […]

Even this day was pretty windy with 15 MPH winds but this beautiful family stuck through it and I think it was totally worth it! The results are stunning! Allison did an amazing job styling her family […]

Remember that sweet little newborn I photographed last year at the Hilton Pier house in Kitty Hawk?! Well, now she’s one! She fit perfectly into a big clam shell and slept like a baby for her newborn session. We had to get a photo of her back in that shell for her first birthday and […]

Ryder and Brady are tying the knot in just two short weeks. We got a perfect day to shoot their engagement session on the Outer Banks, including 14mph south west winds that brought cooler temps and interest to the photos. This was one of those sessions you just leave giddy about. Ryder and Brady’s love was […]
