Lauren + Ryan | Old Town Alexandria Maternity

Last year I was standing REALLY close to Mike on the beach in Delaware while he carried an umbrella to cover me and my Mark III and 70-200 during an epic and inspiring rainy beach ceremony in Dewey Beach. Lauren and Ryan were married, everyone was more than happy to be on that rainy beach…

Sarah + Brian | Kill Devil Hills Session

These two (wait, THREE!!) met with me by the sea in Kill Devil Hills at sunrise…not an easy task! Especially when you’re on a little vacation for Spring Break and your photographer should be letting you sleep in, hahaha! 🙂 I am SO thankful for you guys and I can’t wait to meet that sweet…

Amanda + Robbie | Mill at Fine Creek Maternity Session

When I get an email from a past bride and groom who are asking me to document their maternity session, there is just this feeling I can hardly describe. It’s similar to the butterflies of being booked by them for their wedding, just that HONOR and JOY and a heart filling to the brim with…

Therese + Matt | Nags Head Maternity Session

What a joy to be with these three on a slightly chilly but beautiful Nags Head day documenting this part of their story, baby on the way and getting so close to meeting them being due in just a few short weeks! Therese and Matt told me that they hadn’t done this before (a session),…

Alyssa + Kyle | Kitty Hawk Outer Banks Maternity Session

Alyssa and Kyle were staying on Hatteras Island during what turned out to be a little of a hectic beginning of a weather week…including the fact that they didn’t know if they were going to be flooded in and potentially stuck. WELCOME to the Outer Banks where so much is unpredictable but sometimes it can magically…

Kellie + Matt | Kill Devil Hills Maternity

It was such an honor to shoot their engagements and wedding day…but now I am getting another HUGE honor documenting this baby bump with little boy Grayson on the way and I can NOT be happier for these two loving human beings!! Kellie is a doll, she’s funny, she’s got a really good sense of…

Anna + Chris | Kill Devil Hills Maternity

I’m pretty sure that it was an easy out to blame crying all the time on my pregnant hormones last year, but when I started tearing up at Chris and Anna’s maternity shoot here in the Outer Banks recently, I had no excuse 🙂 The truth is, growing with a client that becomes a friend…

Bree + Stephen | Maternity & Surprise Session!

Bree and Stephen, as you’re going to see, are way too good looking for their own good. Seriously, they are the CUTEST couple and I can appreciate a fun sized gal with a taller guy, it makes us look pretty tiny and adorable if you ask me! 🙂 But her smile is just one of…

Courtni + Matt | Suffolk Maternity Session

Last year at Bull Run Winery, I had the pleasure of being surrounded by this incredibly joyful group of people all ranting and raving about the couple of the day. They were their cheerleaders, closest friends and supporters and when you see them, you will totally get why. They are THAT couple that totally flirts…

Katie + Lucas | Kill Devil Hills Maternity

There is SUCH a great great heartwarming feeling associated with being pregnant WITH one of my brides! Yes, that has happened a LOT because I am indeed pregnant for the third time, for my fifth year in business, but seriously..every single time it just is a wonderful feeling and I LOVE that. Katie looks amazing…

Hannah + Tim | Suffolk Maternity

When I first met Hannah, I was SO thrilled– a wedding vendor I loved completely off the bat, at first sight and impression and she was as sweet as they come. As we grew together as business owners and worked harder and harder to make things happen for us, we found so much joy in…
