The most fashionable child that I know
Of all of the people in the world, I happened to meet one with a love and passion for photography and captured memories of her children that equals my own. Saylor Grace, along with her brothers and cousins, is my most photographed cherub in my life (next to her bff Hazel). It may take you a while, but enjoy the life of SG and her peeps.
Our Personal ray of sunshine
Hazel is used to being in front of a camera. She's been captivating, enchanting, magical and just down right perfect to photograph since the moment she entered this world. Not to sound partial or anything.....but I believe her to be the prettiest little girl I have ever seen in front of my lens.
The story of two sweet sisters...
Hailey and Addy had so much fun dancing in the evening sunlight. These photos are some of my favorites, and I think you can see the girls exact personalities in their looks captured in an instant.
Fun in the Sunflower Fields
Every year the sunflowers are one of my very favorite sessions. Each year I swear they are getting to be more, and more beautiful to photograph. They joy and energy of these fields seems to be contagious, and I can't wait to get back to them.
The magic of dress up
I have enjoyed photographing little girls in couture gowns since 2016. These sessions are some of the most fun and magical sessions year after year. I love working with the gown designers, and planning with the families and most of all dancing with the little princesses.
all the green to be found
Lush Green Locations
NC has no lack of stunning locations for sessions. The amount of green, lush, stunning places is astonishing. I say often (having moved here from the desert), I could pull over on any street corner and shoot an entire session. On a daily basis I marvel at how beautiful it is here.
Millstone Creek Orchard
The peach blossoms are so gorgeous, and eye catching every year. The pinks and the setting are peaceful and serene. They have a beauty that speak to me in a perfect way.
NC Wildflower Fields
For years I chased flower fields to the ends of the earth.....not really, just into the depths of the desert. They were so hidden, and took so much time to track down. Since moving to NC I am in full awe of the flowers that pop up in fields left and right. Now, I bask in the glory of these stunning fields, that stretch on for as far as you can see. I'm spoiled rotten by them.
Are these kids the most gorgeous city cuties. These kids have so much fun dancing and twirling in the city! Urban couture if I have ever seen it.

4. THE PHOTO SESSION
We meet at an established location to photograph your portrait session. Depending on the type of session you have booked. The majority of sessions are set up early evening before sunset. Since moving to North Carolina, I have found a few locations that work beautifully for early morning light as well. this works especially well for families who worry about little ones with early bedtimes. The lighting is the most complimentary to my style closest to sunrise and sunset, and I insist that you have only the best for your photos. I will work with you to see what is the best time for your family, keeping in mind my artistic vision for your final portrait.

CANDID • CHILDHOOD • captured
The fun of make believe, the dancing in the rain, the perfection that is childhood. That is what we want to emote in your images. You know, that time when they are little enough to dream big, snuggle hard, and feel big things. This is what ignites my passion. You would be hard pressed to find someone who wants to capture that joy and liveliness of childhood like I do. I want to look back and experience it over and over again, and I want you to be able to do the same too!
From active toddlers, to serene seniors, children are what I am passionate about in my images. The magic that lives in the young minds and adventures of children.
CHILDREN ARE THE SPARK THAT IGNITES OUR LIVES. THE REASON WE LOVE WITH HEARTS WIDE OPEN
