This sweet baby boy arrived at the studio ready to play!  He was awake for a portion of his custom styled newborn photo shoot at our West Burlington portrait studio.  I love his bright eyes and sweet expressions …. always so fun to capture a few awake moments during our newborn portrait sessions.

During a fun two year birthday photo shoot several months ago, one of my very favorite families shared with me they were expecting their 2nd baby.  I was so thrilled to hear their family was growing.  So excited to see this sweet girl become a big sister and elated to know this baby will so surrounded by love in this family.

I first met this family a few years ago at their 1st daughter’s newborn portrait session.  They were beaming with love for their new baby girl and I knew they would be amazing parents.  I have had the honor of photographing them for several years now and am grateful to continue to share in their journey.  This sweet girl is going to be an amazing BIG SISTER!  🙂

We met at sunset in a pastel light filled of willow trees … nature was at it’s prime and we couldn’t have asked for a more amazing location to capture their journey into becoming a family of four.  This sweet little girl always greets me with a big hug and smiles!  I am so excited to meet this new baby girl very soon and continue to watch this beautiful family grow.

For many years now we have been photographing expectant moms and their babies from Chapel Hill to Winston Salem, Raleigh to Greensboro, Burlington to High Point and beyond.  We have long been asked for a maternity/newborn package and while we have offered our amazing Baby Portrait Plan for years now, we haven’t had a package for just maternity and newborn only.

So we are pleased to introduce our “Baby Bundle” package.  An amazingly affordable option for maternity and newborn portraits, now on introductory pricing you won’t want to miss!  Contact us for details …




Mother’s Day is on my mind this morning … I have had the honor of capturing so many moms in so many different seasons of motherhood over the years.  All have one thing in common … love.  There is an overwhelming love that moms have for their babies and it radiates in every photo shoot.  And there is a peace and a calm that comes when mom is near … babies, children and even teens and adults seem to melt into their momma’s arms in front of the camera.

Momma…I implore you to consider portraits with your children.  I understand some of us (me included) are not extremely comfortable in front of the camera, but I promise you will regret not being in your family portraits with your babies.  Your babies will soon grow up an want to see you in their portraits and you will want to remember those moments and every moment of the journey to the fullest.

Did you know there was a recent study that suggested children who see themselves in family portraits have a high sense of value within their family unit?  When I read this, I completely and instantly understood the findings of this study, as I see this first-hand.  One of my clients actually sent me the link to this article and commented that her daughter’s confidence soared in recent years since I have been photographing her family.  It’s true… when I began photographing this sweet little two year old, she was so incredibly adorable, but so shy.  Today, she is confident and beaming every time I see her!  There are many stories like this, as I have the honor of watching families grow as they return year after year for portraits.  I am ever so grateful for my loyal client base and count it a privilege to document their memories over the years.

Make the memories all along the journey of motherhood.  And mom, trust us…we have years of experience photographing moms and know how to achieve those dreamy portraits you so desire.  We take time with our clients so they have an incredible experience and quality results.  We will work through a variety angles and poses to achieve the best look.  Also, we have a hair and makeup stylist available if you wish to be pampered prior to your photo shoot, and every mom deserves a little pampering at times.

It was another busy weekend and yesterday went by like a huge blur … Mondays are always so full, so I am taking a minute to hop on the blog this morning and share one of my very favorite products we offer.  Our Fine Art Album is second to none … it is exquisite and there aren’t enough words to define how it truly represents your portraits in such a beautiful way.  There are many custom options for the cover, including a variety of color options.  This family chose the sage green cover and it is one of my favorites!

The inside offers thick pages, as we focus on quality in our product offerings.  The tones of the portraits are enhanced by the special selection of premium paper choices from our professional portrait lab.  One of the things I adore about this album is the ability to showcase an image across the seam to span across two pages.  This makes such a statement and is a great way to highlight a few favorite images throughout the album.  Albums can vary in page number if you chose, our typical design allows for 20 pages for our client albums.

Each album is custom designed.  Clients are welcome to visit our West Burlington Portrait Studio and sit in and collaborate throughout the design process, or we can design it completely.  Either way, clients always review the final product before it is sent to our professional image lab for production.

Since these albums are custom designed, we relish in the opportunity to create a special keepsake for our clients.  We often ask for their favorite quote, bible verse, or poem to include within the pages of this gorgeous album, allowing for such a meaningful memory to hold onto as the pages of this album turn over the years.

And let me mention quality … this album is the premium album offered, it is the very same album ordered in high-end wedding packages.  To say it is the best-of-the-best is an understatement.  To see this album in person makes all the difference.  The images seem to jump off the pages and evoke such emotion … our fine art album is a treasure and one of our most requested products from our clientele.

Enjoy  a little peek from our fine art album from this recent newborn baby portrait session …



Fine art photography is available to our photography clients from Chapel Hill to Greensboro, Burlington to Winston-Salem, High Point to Durham, Summerfeild to Mebane, Hillsborough to Oak Ridge and surrounding areas.  Come tour our West Burlington Portrait Studio and experience the difference … see what custom photography is all about and allow us to capture your beautiful memories of motherhood, baby, maternity, childhood, teen, high school senior, newborn, pregnancy, infant, model comp cards and commercial photography.


Things have been so busy in and out of the studio and we have big plans underway, which we will soon share.  For now, we have been scheduling outdoor family portraits and high school senior pictures during our Teen Portrait Event, in addition to photographing so many beautiful expectant mommies and beautiful newborn babies.

This sweet girl visited us around one week of age and she was the sweetest!  Mom brought along this handmade blank keepsake and the colors and textures photographed amazingly!  It’s always extra special to incorporate family treasures into your custom styled portrait session.  This makes for memories upon memories when you look back at these portraits years from now to see how tiny your baby girl was then and also the special keepsake she was photographed with … priceless.




Dream a little dream, snuggled up on the moon … sleep, sweet sleep, sweet baby …


Be still my heart … I had been so blessed to photograph sweet babies for many years now.  As a newborn photographer, you might think it would become somewhat routine to me by now.  The fact is, the awe of the newborn days is never lost … no matter how many sweet newbron babies I photograph, each amazes me in different ways.

Each is such a blessing and such a miracle of life.  Each tiny baby represents all that is right in the world and the future that awaits.   Every new birth highlights hope and peace in a world that so desperately needs both.

Another thing that captivates my attention (and that I love to capture on camera) is the parent/child relationship.  The love is undeniable; the joy uncontrollable in each parent’s life as they wrap their arms around their new baby.  And that love doesn’t stop with baby – it intensifies the love they share for one another.  Couples share such a unique bond after childbirth and it’s an experience that strengthens their relationship as a couple.

Witnessing all the love and emotion during this special season of life is one of the many reasons I adore this job.  I am so grateful to capture these special moments and to share in this journey with parents as they begin the adventure parenthood.

This little fellow visited the studio recently and loved being cuddled up.  We captured beautiful memories of this little love during his newborn photo shoot.

We have been busy this summer photographing expectant moms, babies and families outdoors, in the gorgeous fields of summer.  North Carolina offers such beauty in every season, and summer is one of my favorites to photograph.  We have also welcomed many newborn infants into the studio to capture their first week memories.

sweet slumbering new baby photography

Newborn photography has evolved into a world all it’s own today.  Those sweet, snugly little babies pictured sleeping so perfectly are the images that moms hold close to their hearts.  These images highlight the newness of this special season of life.

The opportunity to capture these newborn memories is best defined as the first ten days after birth.  True newborn moments pass quickly as baby’s sleep patterns and appearance change.  The key to scheduling your newborn portrait photography session is to schedule it early.  We accept a limited number of newborns per week, so most clients reserve their custom newborn photography session while still pregnant.

Ideally, during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy is an optimal time to contact us as it allows plenty of time to place you on our schedule.  Once you get closer to your due date, simply touch base with us to let us know of any plans such as inducement or a planned C-section.  Once you deliver, contact us within 48 hours to finalize your session date.  It’s easy & simply to get started, just email us & we will instruct you on how to reserve your session.
