Life in the Fast Lane. At Millie Holloman Photography, the pace feels a lot like an exhilarating scooter ride: we zip, zag, zoom, and speed off in new directions faster than you can say "Green light!" Want to come along for the ride? Our blog will keep you up-to-date on our most recent photo shoots, our favorite finds, and our craziest shenanigans. Hold on tight. It's gonna be a fast ride!
This session landed me on an island with a one week new baby, a washed up wooden sailboat and the softest light ever… loving the simplicity and natural beauty in these images of this sweet family of three!
This summer, the Allen family invited me to join them on Bald Head Island to capture some photos of their family. Todd, Elle and Kinsley were enjoying their very first vacation on the island and knew it would be the perfect location for their photos! I was excited to hear that this would be some of their last photos as a family of three, as they will be a family of four in just a few months! Kinsley is such a smart and sweet little girl and will be a fabulous big sister! Hurricane Arthur was forecasted to hit the coast on the day we had originally scheduled our shoot. Luckily we were able to coordinate photographing the session a day early and ended up having beautiful weather and some really pretty light!
Todd, Elle and Kinsley, I had the best time with y’all! I loved watching all of the sweet moments happen so naturally with your adorable family along with all of the smiles, hugs and laughs shared between you. So happy you were able to safely enjoy your vacation! Hope to see the FOUR of you again really soon!
Jackie and Mike are getting married this fall in Topsail, NC. When Brent and I were chatting with Jackie and Mike about where they might like to have their session, Mike thought it would be fun to visit the spot on Topsail where he proposed to Jackie. Of course we up for going to such a special place, but what was in store for us was pretty amazing. The sunset that evening was breathtaking and it was one that we will always remember.
Jackie and Mike, Brent and I had such a great evening with the two of you. It was nice to experience the amazing sunset with you in your special location. We can’t wait for the wedding coming up soon!
Deana and Patrick are getting married this fall and Brent and I can’t wait for their wedding! What could be a better start to a love story than a blind date? How about a blind date arranged by your parents! This is exactly how Deana and Patrick met at a local restaurant in Wilmington.
Their story includes cooking, enjoying concerts, evening bonfires and traveling together to experience different cultures. Brent and I have a lot in common with this adorable pair and getting to know them during the engagement session was awesome. They were daring, trusting and knew how to enjoy the moments as they came!
It’s hard to choose a favorite from Abby and Trey’s reception. There were so many great moments! The looks passed between Abby and Trey during their first dance, the tears from Abby’s father as he held her on the dance floor, the delicious and on going spread of food throughout the evening (the pasta was my favorite and Brent couldn’t get enough of the sushi and lamp chops), or the band, Simply Irresistible, leading the crowd to dance like their lives depended on it. We can’t forget the exit when family and friends piled outside to cheer and kiss the couple goodbye. As I mentioned before, the entire day was magical and we are thrilled we could experience all of it!
