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!

The Nicholson Family

Claire  |  Photographers  |  Portraits  |  

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!

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!

Engagement  |  Millie  |  Photographers  |  

Happy & Bill’s engagement session was my last photo shoot of 2012, New Years Eve to be exact. I met up at their beach cottages’, that’s right plural. The reason they have two cottages side by side? That’s my favorite part of their story, they grew up side by side, their families even shared a dock. Both went their separate ways and now life has brought them together in a new and exciting way. They are getting married this April! Now they’ll share much more than a dock and their families could not be happier, neither could they. Loved hanging out with these two!










Happy & Bill, It isn’t often that neighbors and friends for life become such an integral part of your future, what a blessing! I so enjoyed our time laughing and getting to know one another. Perhaps my favorite part was getting to see how perfectly smitten Bill is with you and how “happy” you are to be with him (no pun intended).

    Love this session Millie!

Millie  |  Portraits  |  

It’s hard to believe that 6 months ago I was in a delivery room watching this little girl enter the world. When there are kids in your life it seems to move that much faster. For Tilley-Gray’s six month photos we spent an evening on the beach giggling at her cuteness, running towards her to stop sand from being swallowed, and of course picking her up and putting her right back where she was so she’d just move again. Love this little bit!
























Gray and Lindsey, Thanks to you both for jumping in on the session even though I talked you into it once you arrived! 😉 Watching you two fall in love with this little girl has been awesome. I sure do love your little family. Here’s to a lifetime of many more milestones and celebrations!

    I don’t know this family, but, Millie you made me feel like this little Tilley-Gray and my little Meg could be best buds. I love how cozy families are in your images. Beautiful work.
