Our dear friends Melissa and Klif are having their sweet “minikinny” today! Here’s a look back at the recent maternity session we did for them. Melissa looks absolutely radiant (and Klif is quite the handsome fellow too) and we could not be happier for them and their growing family! I’m sure in no time you’ll see their little one grace the blog. Prayers from our team at MHP for a easy birth and healthy mom and baby, we can’t wait to meet this little one!

What’s better than a sunrise session with the perfect light? Taking a boat over to an island to photograph said sunrise with two people you love (make that three)! I’ve photographed these two since they day they became one and now we are good friends. We love them so much that our entire Wilmington staff made Dr. Pless our dentist after getting to know them. I just love sharing laughs with the two crazies. Their sweet little Marin Lucille is here now too (she came early) so you will get to see her grace the blog very soon!

Hannah & her beau were the BRAVEST clients I have had in a long time- they shot her maternity session in the beginning of January and modeled in the freezing cold like a champs! Shivering and teeth chattering, they kept a smile on and we had a fun time hunting for pops of color, hidden docks, and bridges.






Thank you both for your easy going personalities, and your eagerness to shoot together regardless of the weather. Hannah, you are going to be a radiant mother. I’m so thrilled for the huge, exciting, wonderful adventure ahead for the both of you. Thank you for letting me be a small part!

Crystal and Arnold met me at Wrightsville Beach recently for a maternity session.  They are so excited to be expecting their first child together in just a few weeks!  Newly relocated to the area and long time surfers, Crystal and Arnold will have even more fun on the beach this summer with their new little one!










What I remember most about this session is Crystal tearing up after seeing a sneak-peak from the back of my camera of Arnold’s embrace.  You two are the sweetest!  Congratulations on little your “Baby Turtle!” I hope to get to meet her soon and see the two of you again. Best wishes for a smooth delivery!

I have known CaryAnne and “Uncle” Brett, as my kids call him, for many years now.  We all go way back to Mississippi, and I am so happy to have them so close again.  CaryAnne is the sweetest little lady you will ever meet, and now is the sweetest little mama!  You would never know that she was four days from her due date from these pictures.  Four!  Isn’t she beautiful?






Some of the things I will not forget about CaryAnne and Brett’s maternity session is Brett’s gentleman-nature offering help to CaryAnne at every turn, and catching up with some wonderful friends.  Congratulations, guys!  I can’t wait for the chance to photography little Molly!
