Max Turns One! | Cake Smash Session | Wilmington, NC Children Photographer

It's so fitting that this adorable little one year old do a "Where the Wild Things Are" cake smash theme for his first birthday session because...his name is Max =) 

We kept with a woodsy vibe and headed to Greenfield Lake for Max's cake smash session. He absolutely looooved his cake and had a blast! Cake smash sessions are always hit or miss; babies either love the cake or they barely touch it! I always love when they tear into it and demolish the deliciousness! It makes for really fun photos and good laughs throughout!

The E Family | Wilmington, NC Maternity Photographer

I met this beautiful family out at Figure 8 Island. I don't do many sessions out there, but when I do, I'm ecstatic!! The island is soooo serene. It's quiet and peaceful and the light is always so gorgeous. It's always so surreal to walk out to a beach and there not be one single person for miles! It always takes me by surprise...never fails!! It makes editing super easy because I don't have to get rid of anyone or anything in the background =) 

Anyway, onto photos -- how cute is this family?

Extended Family Session | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

This familyyyyyyy was the absolute sweetest. They were so much fun to work with;  so down to earth and relaxed the entire session. We headed down to Fort Fisher for their session as they were staying at Kure Beach for the week! As usual, Fort Fisher delivered and we got so many great images! I usually share a lot of photos, but this post is loooooong.

F Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

I've fallen behind in blogging and I'm on a mission to catch up! 

This family was visiting Kure Beach from up north and I'm so glad I got a chance to meet and work with them. We met up at Fort Fisher for their family beach session. The light was perfect. Good light always makes me so giddy because it truly makes such a difference in the outcome of the photos!! We've had cotton candy skies lately and it definitely showed off the evening of this session; so pink and vibrant. 

And real quick, can we talk about how scrumptious this baby is??

Sweet J Turns 3 | Wilmington, NC Children Photographer

This sweet, GORGEOUS little girl is visiting all the way from Alaska! She's from a little island where the beaches are full of rocks, so she was soooo interested in the sand. She was fascinated, often watching her feet move in it and raking it up with her hands and slowly letting it pour out. When we got to the water, she couldn't have been more happy...it was so fun to watch how excited she was by the scene!

Baby B | Wilmington, NC Newborn Photographer

Ohhhhhhhh, this sweet little baby boy. He's the newest addition to this beautiful family and they couldn't be more smitten and in love. He's absolutely PERFECT and his older siblings give him all the love...so many hugs and so many kisses. They're so sweet together.

I've known this family for a few years and was so happy when they asked me to do this session for them! I was so excited to meet him and get to snuggle him <3 He gave us so many smiles while I was there!

Senior Photos | Wilmington, NC Photographer

This session was totally different for me and I couldn't have enjoyed it more! It's fun to shoot something that isn't your norm, especially on a nice night in a fun location. 

Austin recently graduated high school and is off to flight school in a few days. His mom contacted me to get photos done of him at this stage in his life, which I love that she did. Maybe it's because I'm a photographer, or maybe it's because I have kids. But, I think that documenting momentous milestones in a child's life is so important! 

Good luck, Austin!
