Events Not to Miss with a Pro Photographer

Annual family photos

Don't miss getting annual family photos with a pro photographerYou know the one’s I’m talking about. We all tend to look over annual family photos, but these can be a great way to capture the whole family year after year. This is especially true as your little ones start to grow! You’ll definitely want to look back at those years that your kids seem sprout out of nowhere and capture all of the fun changes from early childhood even to adulthood!

A new addition to your family

You've got to have newborn photos with a pro photographerHaving a newborn is exciting and exhausting, but the first few weeks literally fly by. If you’re not careful, you might just miss these little moments. Your baby will grow at a crazy fast rate. They can literally look different from one day to the next! This time is also filled with sweet, tender bonding moments that set the stage for your relationship with your child. Hiring a photographer to capture these moments can allow you to preserve those memories and cherish them as your little one grows up.

Whenever you want to document new memories

A visit to Pender Pines with a pro photographerNaturally, you’ll go a little photo crazy when your kids are young and especially so around those big milestones. But what happens during the years in between? Well the good news is, you don’t have to wait until it’s time for your annual family photos or your little one turns one. It’s never a bad time to artfully document your family’s growth. Whether it is a birthday party, graduation, a relative comes to visit (the photos above are from when my little sister came to visit from California) or even just a day spent together at home; these are the days and memories that you’ll carry with you for a long time. A professional photographer can capture these moments for your family and can be printed, framed, or put into albums and cherished family heirlooms.

Best Newborn Photographer 2024


Best Family Photographer 2024

Look at this beautiful little lady! I have been photographing this little girl and her family for years and it's such an honor to get to capture families as they grow. From being invited into my clients' homes to capture their tender moments with their newborn babies or special holiday photos around their Christmas trees, it is never something I take lightly. I feel trusted, valued and I thank my lucky stars for this beautiful work that I do and the amazing clients I get to serve. ⁠
The birth of my brother's first child has prompted me to reminisce about the precious moments when my own children were newly born. Their delightful fragrance, petite and squishy features, and undeniable cuteness overwhelmed me. Despite my exhaustion and the countless tasks that demanded my attention, I found it impossible to sleep when they did. Instead, I would observe their every movement, cherishing each second of that extraordinary period. I made a conscious effort to etch every detail into my memory. And now, as I reflect upon those times, it feels as though they occurred just yesterday, despite my sons now being 5 and 9 years old. Having children truly transports one into a time-warp, with time appearing to both slow down and pass by in an instant, leaving you astonished by their rapid growth.⁠
I have discovered a clear passion within me not only for crafting genuine portraits that capture the true essence of the subject in the present moment, but also for using this skill to uplift women. My focus is specifically on the fearless women who are embarking on their own entrepreneurial journeys.⁠
In light of this, I am pleased to announce the addition of new services to my professional photography portfolio! One of these offerings is personalized branding photography catered to women-owned small businesses.⁠
Your brand serves as a reflection of your vision, values, and dedication. Let's encapsulate the essence of your business journey through bespoke branding photography that speaks volumes, right here in Wilmington, NC! 🌟📷 ⁠
If you share a passion for supporting women-owned businesses, please feel free to reach out to me via direct message. I am eager to have a conversation, collaborate, and potentially work together in some capacity!⁠
I firmly believe that by supporting and empowering women, we actively contribute to the healing, growth, and evolution of our world.⁠
This family is just too sweet! You know what they say: three is a party, and these three kiddos definitely made this session feel like one. 
I love the energy that sibling dynamics bring to a session. They are the best kind of ornery, and it makes for some adorable shots and even better smiles.
I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for long days and bare feet and sandy toes!!! Spring and summer cannot come soon enough, and I am so thankful that my job gets me outside and enjoying the seasons to the absolute fullest 😍
There is quite literally no moment too small in a newborn session. If you’ve had babies in your life, you know that they will grow right before your eyes and you want to savor every second - every little finger and every tiny toe.
