Kirstyn + Fam | Avon Hatteras Family Session

This girl Kirstyn and I…we go WAY back 🙂 And Andy. That’s because I was fortunate enough to be their wedding photographer when I was pregnant with Ellie and I will never forget falling in love with these people. They are charismatic, hilarious and full of LIFE. They’ve been through so much together and now…

Sophie + Fam | Kill Devil Hills Family Session

Sunrise is such a magical time of the day on the Outer Banks. This sunrise was bold and bright and warm and Sophie and her family were so incredible for every second of this mini session down the road from where I live. I loved being able to wake up first thing in the morning…

Rachael + Fam | Kill Devil Hills Family Session

We had one of THE toughest and most potentially awkward windows of time to shoot on the beach…two hours post sunrise! When the sun rises over the ocean…it reflects off the water and almost serves as a really powerful flash pushing light aggressively in our direction, but when I pulled into the parking lot…perfect cloud…

Courtney + Jonathan | Nags Head Couples Session

These two sweethearts – they are SOOOO head over heels for each other! You would feel such joy within minutes of being in their presence. This kind of genuine love keeps me all warm and fuzzy and thankful to work with couples who can flirt and enjoy the beautiful sea and just be grateful for…

Ellen + Fam | Corolla Family Session

I loved this SO MUCH and Ellen’s family happened to visit on a week where the forecast originally may as well said “HAHA good luck photographers!” LOL! I mean – it was rain every-single-day.

WOW GUYS WOW – I know some of you laughed at me on Instastories after I shot this session because I was SOAKED. Mary Kay, you are your family were *so* incredibly agreeable and brave about the weather, the whole drive from Kill Devil Hills to Corolla there was nothing and then it REALLY started…

Lory + Mason | Duck Married Couple Session

I love that these two let me document them because they are a DREAM! I pulled up to the vacation home in Duck, NC and met the sweetest group of people and two adorable dogs. Lory has a light about her that is just undeniable and Mason laughed along as she and I just were…

Nora + Family | Corolla Family Session

These three!!! The biggest feeling I walked away with from this session was, gosh…these two are SO happy to parents!! I always feel like it’s such an honor to work with loving parents. In seven years I’ve seen and experienced a lot and there is nothing like two people are so happy that they’ve started…

Ally + Fam | Nags Head Family Session

I love this family and I’m going to tell you the BIGGEST reason why! Okay, there are two 🙂 Probably more…but I can highlight two very quickly and easily. They love this little girl with their whole hearts and because I am having the joy and honor of watching them grow together. This little lady was…

Kelli + Fam | Nags Head Outer Banks Family Session

Before I even finished editing these, I emailed Kelli in tears. I felt like this family session came to me on a day when I needed it most and their joy and kindness was SO incredibly contagious! Five beautiful children and a couple that has absolutely no problem holding hands and squeezing each other and…
