So very happy that I was able to sneak in a last-minute session with this family before our own little one arrives soon. Love hanging with this crew! This is my third time photographing them -- check out our other sessions HERE and HERE. This time I got to meet their newest addition, Kate, who was such a delight. Older sister Lilly kept me on my toes that morning (every parent knows that the two-year-old rules the roost!), but it was fun chasing her around. : ) I hope to continue watching them grow as a family in front of my camera -- such a pleasure!
It's always a pleasure photographing the milestones of this sweet family -- we're so fortunate to call them friends. Last month, they welcomed their fourth kiddo into the mix! I got to meet adorable Hank at 16 days old and photograph him with his older siblings (who are as goofy and lovable as ever). Enjoy these precious ones!
I'm on a roll, y'all... Two posts in one week! ; ) Meet the Blanchard family. Little Susannah arrived in late July. I've known Megan since I was a teenager, and I'm so happy that I got to photograph this precious, fleeting time in their lives. Enjoy some of my favorites!
Y'all! I'm so behind on blogging right now. I accepted long ago that it's just how things are with two kiddos and one almost here! So, I'll keep this short: looove this family. : ) They bring me so much joy. This is my third session with them! This time, they asked me to do some one-year photos of their second born, Maeve. I'm not sure how it's possible that she's already one, because it seems like I just photographed this family not long ago (but it was last November - crazy how time gets away!). Anyway, I met up with ahhhhhdorable Maeve and her always-awesome parents at Rock Creek Park last month. Love this little girl's inquisitive expressions -- she had me cracking up at times. She's so sweet. Check out some faves!
Heyyyy there everyone. : ) Things have been pretty quiet on the blog this year due to our growing family (and therefore my limited bookings!), but I am very excited to share a wedding with y'all today that I shot last June. Clare and Andrew got married at St. Francis of Assisi, and the reception was held in downtown Raleigh at The Stockroom at 230.
I have known Clare since college (more on our friendship HERE), and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her and Andrew's wedding. Everyone who spoke at their reception talked about how Clare and Andrew always strive to help people be the best versions of themselves, and I couldn't agree more. They are two of the kindest, most generous and thoughtful people that I know, and I'm lucky that they chose me to document such an important day in their lives.
My favorite parts of their wedding day were the moments of anticipation leading up to the first look, the heartfelt toasts given by their family, the band (you guys...I couldn't stop dancing to Whiskey Rebellion...so good!) and the food (Andrew specifically designed the menu and boy did it rock my taste buds!). Oh, and just simply being surrounded by some insanely nice folks all day was a real treat.
