Emma Kate {sneak peek}

I saw Emma Kate just 6 months ago and was thrilled to see her and her family again for her 1 year session.  Although this age can be quite stressful when it comes to pics (right mom?), they are always so much fun and interesting.  There's no posing, just capturing who they are and that makes one gorgeous memory!
Thanks Liz & Trey (& Amy) for such a fun time.  I hope to do it again soon.  Please give Emma Kate a birthday squeeze from me!

Miss Marklie {9 days new}

Been friends with Miss Marklie's mommy since high school.  I have been planning to meet this little one since I got the text she was expecting...been so excited!  Miss Marklie decided to come a little earlier than expected and had to stay in the hospital her 1st week.  It was so great meeting her once she came home and spending time with her mommy.  I know that the family was worried about their new baby girl, but prayers were answered and look how perfect she is.  I am extremely happy with baby Marklie's session - she's absolutely gorgeous and slept the entire session!  Huge thanks to Steph, Townsend & especially Aunt Wendy for your assistance during the shoot.  
One song that comes to mind...How Great is Our God.  
"Name above all names
worthy of our praise
my heart will sing how great is our God"

Amanda + Christian {E-Session}

I'm honored to be a part of this couple's wedding on New Year's Eve.  What an awesome way to ring in 2012!  They were down in my area so we met up to get the E-Session checked off their to-do list.  Amanda is in law school & Christian is applying to med school all while planning a wedding....WHEW!!  
It was so fun to hang out with these two - they both are so sweet & kind.  I know the wedding will be beautiful!
 I found out that Christian is a romantic.  He proposed to Amanda at a vineyard after reserving a private wine tasting at their favorite winery.

They both are big NFL fans (if you can't tell)

And Amanda is a super-planner & a little obsessed with office supplies to keep her organized.  

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.  The rest of the pics from their E-Session is HERE

Special Session..Just Cuz I Can.

The last week before summer, we try to enjoy it at the beach house in Ocean Isle, NC.  For the past 2 years, one of my dearest friends and her family stay at OIB as well.  Our kids get along SO well!  Seriously, there's no bickering amongst's pretty darn awesome.  I wanted to take advantage of my surroundings at Ocean Isle while I was there because I'm a sucker for different.  I tossed the idea to my daughter and my best friend's daughter about being my models for the afternoon.  Lucky for me, they are both beautiful and they did not disappoint. ;-)
First up, a little boho flare...

With about 10 minutes of daylight left, they transformed into "indian" girls...

I want to say thanks to my bestie, Tiff, for the assistance in pulling all of this together.  I can't wait to start working on the other ideas!

Emilie: 2012 Senior Session {Sneak Peek}

I'm a firm believer that God makes certain people cross your path for a specific reason.  He certainly has put some exceptionally sweet people in my life.  (There is a reason that I'm blogging this info on this post - I'm getting to it)
My kids & I fell in love with a sweet young lady this summer - she was an answered prayer indeed!  Emilie.  She was in charge of my kiddos this summer while my hubby and I worked.  In no time at all she developed a relationship with my kids that I was so happy to see.  They adore her & so do I!
Emilie, I honestly do not think I can thank you enough for all that you did this summer to help me and keep my kids happy.  I am so grateful that we met and you needed a summer job  ;-)
And girl, you ROCKed your senior pics!  You were so natural in front of the camera...I loved it.  I know we were dodging storm clouds, but it was so worth it.  I'm so happy I was able to do this for you - it was the least I could do for all you've done for me.
So.....what you doing next summer? ~giggle~
