Rachel + Richy | Sunrise Nags Head Session

When couples are heading for a getaway here on vacation and want to have a session done – naturally, I’m honored and if you know me in person, you know I’m giddy to shoot two people in love for a year, five years, forty years. I just LOVE couples. I love families, too because they…

If this is coming from a pregnant woman who prefers to Netflix binge and eat everything in sight (bye six years of vegetarianism, hello Slim Jims!) — it’s WORTH a read and to hear me out! I never thought for one second that in the middle of my third pregnancy, I would say you know…

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…
