How We Moved To Our Dream Location | Outer Banks

They say if you get more than three emails about it, BLOG about it! Well, in that case… I’m WAY late on this one, pals! We love this question because we know when someone is asking… they’re chasing a dream. We’re believers in that. If you don’t already know this about us…we are VERY big advocates…

A Year With Three Girls Four and Under | The Biggest Challenges

Please believe me when I say I love my girls before you dive into this post…because I, truly from the bottom of my heart, love and appreciate the heck out of them, but talking about my personal struggles as a parent with three of them so close in age and having a rough year may sound…

What Took Me So Long | Saltwater + Grace

Have you ever arrived at an opinion, a lifestyle decision..a place in your life and thought to yourself…gosh, I’m here and I’m SO home here, so what took me so long to end up where I’m standing in this moment? That’s exactly how I’ve felt for the past two years since reclaiming my faith…even though…

Kirsten + Matt | Wanchese + Pea Island Engagements

I’ve been talking a lot about the weather lately, and I think most of us here in the NC/VA area can agree on one thing. May is VERY confused. Like not the normal “it’s a little cold” here and there confused, but like freezing, then burning up, then stealing April’s showers left and right because…

I’ll Never Be Cool | Life By The Sea

I feel like that title alone makes people say…okay, what’s your point? Tell us something we don’t know. It’s not news, I’ve NEVER been “cool” and it makes me slightly go into giggle fits when people say anything of the sort to me. That snort laugh kind of a thing you expect from a Drew…

Amanda + Cody | Teal and Blush Arbor’s Events Wedding

We can’t really say enough about this amazing day, but we’re going to try. The best thing is that we don’t have to say much because it’s all said beautifully in these images! There are a lot of happy tears and moments that I will never forget and I never have to because of the beauty…

Heather + Jim | Carolina Southern Engagements

So let’s just start with this, for Christmas..Jim gives Heather a puppy and in the same day, proposes to her. I got to see the video (because he’s brilliant and set up his phone to record it) and it made me bawl and then giggle because Heather says something along the lines of, “you can’t…

Signs A New Baby Was Here | New Mom Series

They’re back! The bruises, the quick nods that feel like hours. What am I talking about right now?! Is this new baby exhausted delirium? Maybe..but at least I was able to crank out this blog post! Can I get an Amen!? New babies make their presence known even when they’re not in your arms by…

Amanda + Cody | Arbor’s Events Cleveland NC Engagements

To get in my car, drive almost 6 hours one-way amidst one of the busiest seasons of my business..it means there is a couple I have connected with and am so eager to work with and effortlessly they are going to display WHY through the images on this post! You will see my branding words in…

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…

Instagram Outer Banks Session Giveaway! | Couples

YAY!! I’m so glad to share this idea and know that a prize is awaiting someone deserving at the end of the day!!! I was telling Mike recently, you know…I haven’t done a contest in a while. Not because I don’t like running them, but because I literally forgot about the idea of having one!…
