White Sweater & Glittery Heels Project | 5 Years | Cammy Mae

Every time I shoot this– I’m blown away by how big she is but also by how hilariously CONFIDENT she is, haha! Cammy..you have no problem in front of the camera. I gotta say, I kind of LOVE that…being a photographer and all, but I hope that this confidence translates into other areas of life…

New Every Morning | Saltwater + Grace

This season. I am currently existing as 90% shell of human and 10% living human. Ever since the hurricane weekend, things have been such a whirlwind and we’ve been having the most incredible sessions and weddings and loving our business but it’s the laundry, the dishes, the upkeep of life that is currently bogging us…

Cammy’s Real Job | New Mom Series

I will never forget the day I met her. I had waited and enjoyed big old contractions for a while before having to be wheeled to the OR for a c-section to bring her into this world, and then just like that…she was in my arms. I may have still been slightly drugged holding her in…

Three Reasons Mamas Need A FitBit! | Mermaid Mama Gets Fit

When I first learned about what a FitBit was…it was at the Pursuit Conference with my friends Amanda and Erika while we were on our way hopping planes to get there. When they explained to me what it tracked and why they liked it, I was SOLD. Honestly for me, living in this overly technological…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 2 1/2 Years!

She is sooo middle child in every beautiful way possible. Ellie..you’re a MESS GIRL a total mess!!! She doesn’t care either and that’s a quality that attracts us even more to her, that strength and that carefree spirit! We love our girls because they’re wild and free.

Gypsies Only | Outer Banks

If I get the same message more than once, I usually end up turning into a blog post..and this week I was asked the same question back to back and decided that this NEEDED to be a blog post…so here goes! Here’s our “how to” on moving to the Outer Banks, by the Hedgepeth family!…

Autumn’s Birth Video | Life By The Sea

I can’t even begin to describe how it feels when Jeremy and Ashley Mitchell drop one of these videos in your lap. On both occasions, Mike and I had been having exceptionally rough weeks and then Jeremy floats in with a text that says oh here you go pal! And our world is right again,…

Someone Does | Life by the Sea

Nothing big or long today, just thoughts from this little five foot tall mama of three here in Kitty Hawk NC on a sunny day. I sit down to blog, the girls watching the new Spongebob that just hit Hulu and there’s Cammy walking around the living room mimicking Spongebob’s new walk with his long…

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…

No One Like Him | Life By The Sea

I know a lot of people brag on their husbands, and of course..they should! There are a lot of good ones out there..I know a bunch of my sweet friends have snagged some of the best and deservingly so. I love hearing about good husbands especially because there was a low time in my life…
