Shark Week! |NC Beach Maternity Portrait Photographer, Oak Island, Holden Beach, Wilmington NC

Its shark week, and our state of North Carolina is getting all the attention these days with numerous shark attacks. I have no idea what is going on, but with our vacation starting next week, needless to say we will be watching the waters very closely and staying very SHALLOW!  :| However, sharks simply cannot keep me away from the ocean. Its so peaceful and serene. The breeze, the smells, the people, and the warm sunsets make it all worth the trip.

Add a gorgeous mommie-to-be to the scenery, and you get breathtaking images as these! Just a few of my favorites of this growing family from Jacksonville, NC.

Three Years Later | NC Professional Newborn Photographer

I love hearing pregnancy and labor stories and simply getting to know our moms. I hear often their success’s as well as their pregnancy struggles. It puts into perspective how much I am being trusted with their precious miracles. After many different doctors, with many referrals, and numerous trials and tests they almost gave up. Until the last doctor they came to gave them one thing they clung onto… Hope. After three years of trying to conceive, this time they were successful. Introducing this little miracle, Lincoln Alexander. (I just love his name!) He’s bound to be great and do great things in his lifetime. Just a few of my favorites from his session.

Oh, and that wonderful doctor… he retired two months after Lincoln was conceived. What a blessing!


Are you expecting? I would love to hear your story. Contact us to reserve your due date and let us capture your little miracle too. | 910.212.5074

Camo or Pink? | NC Baby & Maternity Photographer Gender Reveal Photographer

The rain decided to take a break this afternoon for a little gender reveal party for the Duncan’s! So honored to be a guest and to see entire family’s reaction to the newest addition coming this December! I love little surprise’s as these, the mom or dad didn’t even know the gender until the balloons came out of the box. I was #TeamPink from the very moment I met Crystal. With her style, a little girl was all she needed to spoil rotten and to have daddy wrapped around her little finger.

Camo or Pink?


So with family all around everyone made their bets… And many, many were wrong…


Please congratulate Crystal and Brett as announce that its a GIRL!

Thank you for having me, I enjoyed meeting all of you!
