Workcation Literally Down The Road | Salt Air Entrepreneur

This past Sunday on the very last day of February 2021, I checked into the most quaint, peaceful and charming little hotel just a couple of minutes from our home called The Breakwater Inn and spent 2:30pm – 9pm working my butt off on emails, course development, answering DMs and more. Checking into a hotel…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 7 Years!

Ellie is still the queen of kindness and the queen of biscuits. For her birthday this year, Gdog (my dad) drove down from Norfolk and picked up HENRY’s biscuits in Kitty Hawk on the long haul down to Hatteras… we are NOW LIVING IN FRISCO! Ellie loves life, she loves love, she loves being fancy…

Teal Heels & Gold Sweater Project | 5 Years | Autumn Jean

Oh this little weirdo, where do I even begin? Autumn is the baddie of the group – better known as Naughty Autie – she is always saying something off the wall, left field and including a shock factor in every delivery.. and we couldn’t love her more! You know that you can get away with…

We’re Moving to HATTERAS! | Life By The Sea

Last week on Instagram, we announced something we had been holding on to for weeks, but we had been hoping for far longer. We let our community know we were moving an hour plus south to live on Hatteras Island, which is truly a dream for our family! We have been head over heels in love with…

Technical Holdups | Personal Branding

The timing is just…crucial right now. There has NEVER BEEN a better and more important time to suck it up and OWN a personal brand. With all of this coronavirus stuff going around, small businesses are panicking and I get it. A lot of people have been dealt a horribly difficult hand BUT on a…

Emotional Holdups | Personal Branding

Let’s just start with being COMPLETELY HONEST and FORWARD: Because of the audacity I had to create a personal brand… Our family lives on the Outer Banks I have consistently doubled OR tripled my husband’s income yearly  I get to call the shots on when and where I shoot and be a little picky I…

Tracey + Jesse | Nags Head Wedding

Tracey made the right call burying the bourbon because what was projected for this day was not good at all when it comes to weather, and what they got? Golden hour on the sound in Nags Head with the perfect October temperature – a freaking miracle we ALL prayed for! This day was nothing short…

12 Hours Weekly, 8 Years Later | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I wish I could find a better word than FUNK, but funk’s gonna have to be it. For months I’ve been in the weirdest mental space (sharing this on Instagram stories and finding other moms that are in the SAME season, we are feeling weird together!) and after being a mom for the past almost…

Stephanie + Kyle | Currituck Club Wedding

The week before the wedding was calling for an entire week FILLED with rain, including Saturday. We know we can pull it off if it rains (like the wedding we shot the day before this one!) but we just HOPE it doesn’t, especially when the ceremony is at the golf course on the Currituck Club!…

Lauren + Nick | Virginia Cliffe Inn Wedding

When two photographers who were soaked for 8 hours straight can get in the car at the end of the night and say “that was an AMAZING wedding day” – you know it was above and beyond a TRULY great day!!! From start the finish, there was rain on Friday, June 7 in Glen Allen,…

2020 Weddings | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Okay, so I’m really posting this finally…I KNOW, I just literally couldn’t bring myself to do it for weeks! Can I have the excuse of the three kids and running the nonprofit and the oil business and this photography business, too? No, I can’t – because I just kept putting this one off on purpose,…
