I met the sweet Nicholson family this summer in Indian Beach, NC. Hillary and Brett’s daughter Scarlett is one of the friendliest little girls I have ever met! We had fun playing in the sand and putting our feet in the water as the sun set. This little girl was just as content playing with sea oats as she was playing with her Paddington Bear. I mean, look at that big smile! How can you not melt?
Hillary and Brett, you guys are so much fun! Thank you for sharing your little Scarlett with me for the evening!
The moment cute-as-can-be Chelsea walked in to my favorite coffee shop, Port City Java, to meet me before her photo session I knew it was going to be a perfect day!
We shot her senior portraits on Front Street, right in the midst of the hype of St. Patrick’s Day weekend and festivities! Front Street is so full of life during holiday weekends, so we escaped to this peaceful side street to get started. Lucky us, we found some amazing corners and beautiful blooms hiding there for us to get lost in…
Chelsea, I can’t tell you how much I loved photographing such a special time of your life, and the chance to capture your beauty. You are beautiful inside and out, and I wish the very best for you in all that’s to come!
The blogs are coming folks. We’ve been shooting like crazy for the last several months and now things are slowing down just enough for us to get some blogs up before the wedding season kick off again. We’ll be back soon with lots more but for now here is a little peek of my morning. I had a one-2-one mentoring session today and one of our photographers, Claire, and her husband, Welsey, were kind enough to model for me. When I do one-2-one’s I typically edit the session the same day while teaching so I thought I would get it up quickly. I shot a little film too and I can’t wait to get that back! Enjoy!
I first met the Pajerskis for a maternity shoot before their oldest son, Owen, was born. A couple of months later, I photographed their new baby at just under 2 weeks old. It was so much fun to reunite with this family and meet little Chandler, the newest addition to the Pajerski clan!
A few of my favorite moments from this session were the fact that we got Owen and Chandler in the same shot together, this called for a victory dance! I love that Alicia bought along a ginormous sucker for Owen when we wrapped the shoot, his first lollipop ever and he was loving it! Chandlers big grins and Owen’s little explorer personality made the shoot both fun and challenging. Getting to see this family again, so happy and growing topped it off, what a wonderful evening!
Meet the Tharpe family, this group is full of boundless energy and giggles! From the second Claire and I saw them get out of the car for this session, until we wrapped the last shot, we were all smiles. Their energy and love for life is contagious. Can we talk about their outfits?!! Too cute!
Perhaps my favorite part of getting to meet these folks is knowing that this session has been a long time coming. They used to live in our neck of the woods and now find themselves calling Tennessee home. Bethany’s been wanting to do a session with us for a while so we are happy to be able to cross one more thing off her “wish list” list and have a blast doing it. Now that we’ve fallen in love with them, we just wished they lived a little closer!
