Miss A at the Palace | Jacksonville NC Boudoir Photography

This is a session that I have had on my photography bucket list for a long time and I’m ecstatic it finally all came together the way I wanted! We started hair & make up at noon, which seems early until you consider the ever amazing Mercedes was doing an 18th century hair style on…

I can’t believe I haven’t done a blog post on this super sweet couple! Macey was one of the winners of the 4 Seasons of Minis Giveaway I did back in August. She’s currently dating Ben, who is stationed here so we plan her sessions when she’s coming to town to visit him. For her…

Mercedes at the Palace | New Bern Maternity Photography

You know that amazing moment when everything sort of just comes together and life is awesome? This session was born from a series of moments like that. I’ve known Mercedes for a few years now, since I made an offhand comment to my son about a book series and heard someone behind me yell “oh…

This year the sunflowers that bloomed in Cape Carteret were perfect for portrait sessions! I’m so glad I offered the mini sessions this year, I was able to photograph a few different types of sessions in them including siblings, maternity, and mommy and me.

Crystal reached out about booking her daughter, Erin, a mermaid session. They came from almost two hours away, and well, it’s North Carolina weather and we all held our breath as we watched the storm clouds roll in. Fortunately, they were super early to the session and I headed down to the beach early myself…

Molly & Phil won second place in the cutest couples contest held on my Facebook page and the day of their session was beautifully sunny, but surprisingly cold! Phil was a true gentleman and Molly spent between poses wearing his jacket (isn’t that so sweet?!). We met at Sturgeon City Park in Jacksonville for a…

They say it’s the mechanic’s wife whose car needs work, the carpenter’s house that need some repairs, and in the same vein, it’s the photographer’s family who waits for photos. This session was done back in July and I just finally got caught up with my client work enough to finish up these fun photos…
