F. Family | Wrightsville Beach NC Family Photographer

The F. family reached out before their Wrightsville Beach vacation because the last time they had a family portrait session, their kids were toddlers. Now, they're all teenagers! I have to say, it was a nice change of pace! I tend to photograph lots of young children, which requires a great deal of energy, but these three teens made it so easy. They also ordered gorgeous prints from their session, so I'm glad they'll be able to remember their beach vacation (and their family at this stage of life) for years to come!

B. Family | Carolina Beach NC Family Photographer

I met the B. Family while they were vacationing on Carolina Beach in June. A set of grandparents, their daughters and sons-in-law, and adorable grandsons all came together for a week at the beach! They seriously rocked the color coordination with their gorgeous navy and coral outfits (very bright and beachy!). We were rained out at the beginning of the week, but the weather finally decided to cooperate and the images truly reflect the sweet dynamic of this family and the time they were able to spend together. Of course, as you can imagine, those two gorgeous little boys were the center of attention!

Jameson | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I was so excited for this little guy to come into the world! His mama is one of my closest friends and I couldn't wait to see her with her very own baby boy. It's been such a wonderful experience helping her navigate the early days of motherhood, while getting some sweet baby snuggles (and hopefully I haven't scared her too much with my three small kiddos through the years!). She pretty much gave me free reign with Jameson's newborn portraits and he was seriously one of THE BEST sleeping babies I've EVER photographed! Literally, a dream baby! He slept for hours while I posed him, only waking for a quick snack every so often. The images of Jameson and his parents are ridiculously adorable as well, especially the ones of dad and baby in matching Superman outfits!

I've also included a few of Jameson at about 24 hours old during his Fresh 48 hospital session. He was more alert because of all the newborn tests that morning and those eyes totally melted my heart (and I left the hospital with a *tiny* bit of baby fever!).

Sophia, 7 Month Sitter Session | Wilmington NC Baby Photographer

At 7 months old, Sophia was the happiest and most precious baby girl! Her chunky cheeks and thighs were unbelievably adorable and she pretty much smiled during her entire session. She was so content that we made it through many outfit changes in less than an hour. One of those outfits was her christening dress, which was absolutely gorgeous!

I'm so glad Sophia came in for her sitter session at the perfect age! She loved making eye contact and smiling, but she also stayed put for the most part (I'm sure she'll be on the move during her one year portraits in a few months!). Sitter sessions are perfect for capturing the stage in between the tiny newborn days and the beginning of toddlerhood!

Avery, 10 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Little Avery was such a doll for her newborn session! She had the most gorgeous little features with the perfect amount of squishiness! We incorporated lots of pink, purple, and florals for this dainty sweetheart.

Also, it was so nice getting to know her parents and I had a wonderful time capturing family shots (their adorable dog even hopped in an image!). One of my favorite aspects of newborn photography is talking with parents and learning about their family and their story. Becoming a parent (or adding another little one to your family!) is an amazing, and also sometimes terrifying, experience and I love that I can be a small part of the early days for my newborn clients!
