Hickory, NC Family Photographer

I am so glad I got the opportunity to photograph this family! This was their first time being photographed all together but the parents have been behind my lens in the past before their beautiful daughter was born. These people are special to me and I am so thankful that I could capture their memories! I am also grateful for the help of this sweet girl’s Grandpa during this shoot. He did the best job being silly. Good thing we were on his property though because we were yelling and acting crazy like nobody’s business. Whatever it takes for some genuine smiles and laughter. There was lots of talk of Peppa Pig. She was doing some crazy things behind my back :).

Thanks for trusting me to tell your family’s story in photographs and preserve these moments. I had so much fun and I am so glad we got to hang out afterward. The entire time I was editing this session Andy would come see me at my computer and say there’s Anniston. He must have bonded in that awesome swing, lol. Seriously though, ya’ll are great and so much fun. Not to mention a good looking family! Thanks for getting in front of my lens.

BLOWING ROCK, NC FAMILY PHTOGRAPHER

Blowing Rock, NC Family Photographer

I met this sweet family at the close of Summer at Moses Cone Manor in Blowing Rock, NC. I know I use this location a lot for portraits but it never disappoints and no two sessions are the same because there are so many pretty areas to use. I just want to officially put it out there too … that if anyone wants to hike here then I would LOVE to photograph you as we explore the fire tower trail. We hiked there this pas weekend after a wedding consult and it was so pretty. I was kicking myself for not bringing the big camera. Heck, I didn’t even have my cell phone on the trail. It is sometimes good to unplug though.

Back to the session at hand … isn’t this an absolutely beautiful family? When they contacted me they told me the motivation for these pictures was in honor of their Mom’s birthday. They were in town to celebrate and enjoy each other. I am so glad I got to capture these memories for you all. I love documenting the love grandparents have for their grandchildren, children and family LOVE in general. These kiddos were too cute too. We got many authentic moments of them and I am excited to share. The oldest boy was a total ham and I LOVED it. So stinkin’ precious. And this sweet baby, only 4 months old, such big smiles for his Mommy’s singing “Take me out to the ballgame”. Then the little girl, she was so busy running. Dad was such a great sport swinging her into place to capture that pretty face! We also got her to slow down with some snacks which totally did the trick.

Thank you so much for allowing me to document this time for you!

BOONE, NC ELOPEMENT

Boone, NC Elopement

James and Alexa eloped this Spring at Kilkelly Cabins in Boone, NC. This piece of property is so beautiful with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a gorgeous sunny day with perfect weather. Their sweet baby boy and the minister and I were the only ones attending and sharing in their vows. That is pretty special and why I love elopements. I even get to sign the marriage license as a witness. This couple was so adorable and their baby of course was as sweet as could be. He sat in his stroller for a few minutes while we got started but quickly wanted to be in Mom and Dad’s arms during the vows. That’s what makes elopements so awesome, anything goes and everything is relaxed.

After the vows were sealed and the paperwork was taken care of we explored the property and took lots of photos. Those views are seriously amazing and Alexa looked absolutely beautiful in light pink. I had so much fun with you all and really enjoyed our time together. I am glad you found me and that I got to meet you and witness your union. I hope you have the BEST life together with your little guy. He’s a cutie!
