Oh, my sweet girl. How big you have grown! Not just physically, but the maturity we are seeing in you as well…it is so bittersweet.

You’re growing up, becoming more and more independent, a little more sassy…which is a plus and a minus, ha!

As much as I miss you as a baby and toddler, I’m so proud of the big girl you’ve become.

Wondering what to wear to the Spring Family Portrait Event next month? Here’s an idea …


These colors look gorgeous against the green backdrop of spring outdoors in Wake Forest. Most of our clients wear neutrals and pastels all year round so that they coordinate nicely with each other and our soft, natural photographic style.

If you need more outfit inspiration, check out our Pinterest boards – we have boards for the whole family!

And if you’ve been thinking about family portraits, we are still booking our portrait event that benefits Duke Children’s Hospital – hurry, spots are very limited!

With all of the snow, ice, and missed school days at the end of February, it completely slipped my mind to share this wonderful news: my article Every Little Detail was published in the Lemonade and Lenses Newborn Issue!

The article is about a subject that is near and dear to my heart: photographing all the tiniest details of newborn babies using macro photography. Babies grow and change so much so quickly, especially in their first year of life.

It’s such a joy for me to give new parents these close up detail images of their most precious little sons and daughters.

Thank you to Lemonade and Lenses for the great honor of being featured in your publication once again!

We’re so excited to announce our Spring Family Portrait Event in support of one of our favorite causes, Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center!

25% of all proceeds from this event, including $100 from every session fee, will be donated directly to Duke Children’s to help in their mission:

“Every day at Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center, we meet brave children and their families who are in need of hope, answers—and, above all, care. For us, meeting the needs of these children and families serves as the driving force behind every one of our missions—from critical care and laboratory research to medical education and children’s health advocacy.”
