Extended Family Session | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

Extended family sessions are always pretty popular over the summer, when families tend to gather at the beach! I've known Jordan for about 6 1/2 years and have photographed her family numerous times. I've met her sister a few times, but this is the first time I've had a chance to meet her brother! His little girl was precioussssss. 

We scheduled this session for last Wednesday. It pouuuuuured all week long, so we kept having to push the session. It was questionable for a bit, but it ended up being sunny (and insanely humid) on Friday night, so we went for it. I'm so glad it worked out because her brother's family was flying out on Saturday! 

We headed downtown, along with everyone else in Wilmington, for their family session! Downtown was sooooo busy.

S Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

This family was visiting Kure Beach last week and contacted me to do a family session while they were here. I'm so glad I got to meet them because they were so great to work with. For their family session, we headed to Fort Fisher and the weather was ABSOLUTELY perfect. Gorgeous light, perfect temps, low humidity (yes! so rare here!). I swear it has rained everyday since and I am oooover it.

The kids are the same age as my kids so getting to know them was fun because their interests are prettyyyy similar to my kids' interests! :) They were a dream to have in front of my camera; they were super agreeable and sweet with one another. They totally made my job easy. The two of them most definitely earned the ice cream that they got after the session! They were onnnnn and I loved it.

K + S | Wrightsville Beach Family Session

I photograph several sets of twins and I always love taking photos of new sets! It's so much fun to witness the dynamic between twins. They each have their own little personalities and their bond is undeniable. It's so sweet. 

Kenan and Sloan are DOLLS. We headed down to Wrightsville Beach for their family session. The girls were soooo cute and happy throughout their entire session. Little Kenan is a little lover and was happy to dole out kisses the entire session!! Sloan was on the giving end most of the time, which made for some really sweet sister photos <3 

The session ended with them in the water and both of them soaking wet. They had a blast :) Oh, and those dressessssss. So perfect for the beach!

Ophelia Turns One! | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

This beautiful little girl is turning ONEEEEE! 

Ophelia was so much fun to photograph. I always loooove first year sessions. The first birthday is such an exciting, bittersweet milestone. Your baby isn't quite a baby anymore, but they're so sweet and squishy still. I lovelovelove babies, but the second year is the best, I think. They start to do so much; they start working on words and walking, they emerge into a little person with fun quirks. It's the best.

Sweet Ophelia was a dream to photograph, despite not lacking the grass! We ended with a cake smash, much to her delight. She would've sat and ate that entire cake if we would've let her! She was being so dainty with it, swooping her little finger into the icing and then into her mouth. It was the cutest.  

The weather was perfect and we couldn't have asked for better light. I just love when the sun is shining and light pours into this field. It's probably one of my favorite locations.

T Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

Trinity and I met when our oldest kids were in our bellies. Our husbands ran in the same circle of friends and since then, we've been in each other's lives. We've since added more children and it's been so much fun watching all of them grow!  

For their family session, we met out at Wrightsville Beach. I spent a good amount of time laughing behind my camera. I always forget how funny toddler antics can be! June threw out every bit of personality; she's a hoot to watch <3 The entire time, I kept thinking back to their gender reveal session that we did when they found out she'd be a girl. That felt like yesterday! And now? She's 20 months old.

Anyway, the gorgeousness that is the T family...

C + N | Wilmington, NC Maternity Photographer

I returned back from an almost two week vacation and less than 5 hours later, I was photographing these two <3 We met out at Fort Fisher for their maternity session and while I thought it'd end up raining on us, the evening ended up being absolute perfection! Fort Fisher never disappoints.

A friend of Nancy and Chay's actually contacted me to set up a session for these two. Chay was attempting to surprise Nancy with a maternity session when they came into town to visit their friends. Nancy ended up being told, which is probably ideal being that she's pregnant and needed to plan what to wear =) Speaking from experience, it's a little overwhelming planning outfits for maternity photos, so having a heads up was definitely to her benefit. How sweet was Chay's gesture, though?? Seriously, the best. 

Nancy is a sweetheart; so soft spoken and laid back. She was a dream to photograph, especially in that white dress. Chay was so attentive the entire session...it was sweet to witness. They'll have their little girl in their arms in less than a month and there's no doubt Chay will spoil his girls rotten. 

As you can tell from this insane overshare, it was so hard to narrow photos down to blog!

J Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

I always love meeting new clients! This family was so much fun. Their oldest juuust celebrated her 7th birthday, which is only a couple of weeks before my daughter's 7th birthday. I loved being able to get her in front of my camera and see how similar she is to my own! She hammed it up and loved every second of it, which made my job super easy =) Her joy is infectious. Little sister made me work a bit harder, but we got some great, genuine expressions out of her!
