Welcome Little Miss C! | Suffolk, VA Newborn Photographer |

Meet Little Miss C.  Isn’t she just too cute?  This little ray of sunshine was just 13 days new and so tiny and sleepy.  She was such a doll and her itty-bitty, teeny-tiny squeaks were just too precious.  Mom and Dad are settling in and getting used to having a new little one to love and while Big sister  originally wanted a bunny, she is thrilled to have a little sister.  I really enjoyed this session…snuggling babies is always fun but dressing her up with girly flowers and bands made it all the more fun.  Welcome Little Miss C and Congratulations to the P family.  I’m so happy for you.

Happy Birthday Mrs. W! | Windsor, NC Photographer |

It was such an honor to photograph Mrs. W who is celebrating her 87th birthday! That’s right…. I said 87!   Look at her? Isn’t she beautiful? Don’t let the numbers fool you – no-no. She is as vibrant as she looks in these images. Mrs. W had grand birthday celebration with her friends and family.   Happy Birthday Mrs. W!

Introducing Baby G! | Windsor, NC Newborn Photographer |

I proudly present to you – Baby G!   He is  the sweetest little bundle of love  and he’s winning everyone’s hearts.    Mommy’s glowing as she cuddles her sweet little doll baby,  Daddy’s Beaming with pride and joy for his little man, and Big Sister is so happy that “HER” baby is FINALLY here.  Their family is complete and perfect.  Enough of my rambling and on to the goodies.  Look at all of this cuteness!

Miss L is finally here! | Suffolk, VA Newborn Photographer |

Have you ever been really excited about something and then find out that it’s been delayed or postponed until a later unknown date?  Well that’s the story with Little Miss L!  Just when we thought she was about to make her grand entrance to the big world and everyone was getting all excited, she decided to bake to perfection for just a few more days.  Imagine her parents anticipation.  The wait was worthwhile and I know her mom, dad, and big brother couldn’t be more thrilled to finally meet their precious new baby girl.  She was a perfect little model for her session.  There were a few times that I “bothered” her when changing poses and she cried a bit, but just like she started, she STOPPED ….and resumed sleeping like nothing ever happened.   Congratulations C, B, and L – I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.  I truly enjoyed photographing your beautiful baby girl.

Welcome to the world Little Miss K! She’s a real living doll and so so sweet, so calm and content….and as pretty as can be. Absolute LOVE at first sight! I had so much fun photographing this beautiful baby girl and her family and I’m so excited to share a sneak peek of this session!

Counting down! | Windsor, NC Maternity Photography |

After posting a teaser on FB, I had to share more of this gorgeous mommy. It seems like just yesterday that she made the great announcement that she was expecting and now she’s counting down the days until this little bundle of love arrives.   Their home is full of  love, joy, anticipation, and excitement to meet their newest member…….and the baby gear is rolling in.  It was such a great pleasure photographing this beautiful mommy and her growing family.  Oh, and I’m counting down too!

I’m On A Mission!!! | Colerain, NC Family Photographer |

I’ve noticed the photos that I have the least of are of some dearest to me.  They are always either too busy to have their photos taken, not dressed right, hair isn’t done,  the time isn’t right, or they’re camera shy,  and the list goes on… I wanted PORTRAITS and I decided to take action.  They were TRICKED into having their photos taken.  I quietly set up my things and invited them to come where I was.  My dear grandmother saw what looked like a very comfy chair and gladly sat down.  She was clueless as to what was about to happen.   I was ALL smiles at this point because I wasn’t really expecting it to be THIS easy.  I had her just where I wanted.  Next in line came my parents and I wasn’t taking any excuses this time.  Nope…not at all.  They were available, they were dressed, and I wasn’t taking “NO” for an answer.   Even though I only had a precious few moments to photograph them, I’m so happy with the end results.  My mission isn’t complete though.  There’s still one more very special man – my grandfather that I MUST photograph.  Until then let me introduce you to some of my love ones – My Parents and My Grandmother!

On the Road – Little Posers Newborn Workshop

I recently traveled to Philadelphia, PA for incredible opportunity to work along with 5 other wonderful photographers as we attended the “Little Posers” workshop by amazingly talented Amber Scruggs of Little Moon Photography. Seeing Amber in action and learning firsthand many of her techniques as well as assisting and photographing our adorable little models was a truly amazing experience. What a day!!!! I walked away with a much GREATER understanding of what it takes to get those jaw-dropping beautiful newborn images that Amber is so well known for.

Now on to some photos of our precious little models!

Little Loves – A B C…..C…… C |Suffolk, VA Children’s photographer |

Sons, Daughters, Sisters, Brothers,  Cousins, Nieces, Nephews and Grands……..All titles for these little loves.  I’ve been anxiously waiting until after Christmas to share this session!   Our goal for the session was to get a great shot of them all together for their Grandmother.   Despite being early and a little chilly, their smiles and personalities shined beautifully.  What little girl doesn’t love FLOWERS and an old log was just the perfect spot for little boys to shine.  And the two newest little family additions, Babies C and C just went with the flow of things.  All of these little loves together in front of the camera = the perfect Christmas gift for Grandma!  This great session was topped off with just a little more sweetness from Babies C and C who are cousins and born just days a apart.    Thank you W families for choosing me to help you with the perfect gift!

Love is in the Air | Ahoskie, NC Engagement Photographer |

That about sums up this session!  We started out early in the morning and it was cold! Or maybe it was just me who was cold.  They were excited and ready to start the show.  They snuggled, danced, joked, held hands, smooched, and even had a picnic!  They were naturals in front of the camera and it made my job all the more fun!  J and A – I’m so happy that you chose me to photograph you!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
