All smiles for the camera as this baby doll celebrates her first birthday!  I adore following baby’s first year with our baby portrait planners; each milestone is unique and special.

One of my favorite things about one year old portrait sessions are baby’s expressions.  At one year old, baby has such personality and is so animated.  The things I adore about this image:  her smile… it’s contagious, her tiny toes, her little hands folded together…so lady like, her big blue eyes, the texture, the style…so classic. This portrait is one to treasure … mom ordered a big canvas of this one and it’s easy to understand why … so precious!  :)

Last winter, we had the opportunity to capture amazing maternity portraits for a special couple.  They were awaiting the birth of their first baby, a beautiful baby boy.  We have since captured his newborn, 4 month and 6 month portraits and he is a little doll, full of smiles and fun and completely surrounded by love!

We captured so much variety in this maternity portrait session between wardrobe and backgrounds, including a winter wonderland of rustic, snowy scenery.  We shared a few favorites already, but since snow is in the forecast this weekend, we thought it perfect timing to share a few more favorites.  We have one opening for a snowy portrait session, perfect for couples, maternity, children, family, or high school senior.  Email us to reserve this special opportunity.




Organically styled, this newborn portrait session was one of my favorites!  Soft pastel tones coupled with dainty floral accents and ruffles … it just speaks to everything feminine.

Our newborn experience includes a custom styled portrait session, providing a beautiful and unique variety of portraits.  We are currently offering our Baby Portrait Plan at promotional pricing for a limited time, an amazing value …. inquire for details.

We are back to business this morning after a holiday “staycation.”  We enjoyed a rare week of vacation at home.

As a family, our schedules between work, school and church keep up so busy.  Days, nights and weekends are full with commitments and we are blessed to be involved in so many different ways, but so thankful to have time to rest and enjoy some quality family time every once in awhile.  We were able to enjoy things that are hard to fit in the schedule under normal circumstances … simple things like home cooked meals, home projects, board games, baking and late night movies.

Today, we are back to business and excited to be working on new things for 2017!  Expecting or know someone who is … contact us today about our new options for maternity and newborn portraits.




Good morning!  We are stopping by the blog to wish everyone a happy Tuesday!  Our weeks have been full lately and we had an amazing Christmas!  This little doll baby was awake for a portion of her newborn portrait photo shoot and we captured her pretty brown eyes.

We are gearing up for the New Year and working on new and different options that you have been asking for, and you will love them!  Big things ahead, stay tuned …

This baby girl was custom styled with white pearl halo and a white snuggle wrap during her traditional couture newborn session in our studio.  The white and cream color palette makes for the perfect neutral and organic style of portrait that will display beautifully anywhere in your home.




We had the honor of capturing family newborn portraits for this special family of four.  They all are so breath-taking, but motherhood portraits always have a special place in my heart.


As a mom myself, these are the type of fine art portraits that melt my heart.  I so wish I had portraits like this with my babies.  After carrying a child for 40 weeks, the bond that has already been established is overwhelmingly beautiful.  There is nothing like the love between mother and child.





This beautiful little love arrived in the studio so cuddly and she loved being snuggled!  We had a chance to incorporate her nursery colors of purple and grey into custom styled newborn photo shoot.  I love the color combo here, I don’t think I have paired these colors together before, but I love the look of it!  The deep plum purple color speaks of fall and the grey floral backdrop is so feminine and delicate, just like baby.

She is a little baby doll and she is so loved by her amazing mommy and daddy.  Looking forward to capture her year of memories as a baby portrait planner!

Have I mentioned how I adore the opportunity to create custom design sets for our photography portrait sessions?  Maybe it’s the designer in me, but I love coordinating all the details for each and every photo shoot we conduct.

This baby boy’s nursery was woodland themed, so it was the prefect opportunity to play with tones of brown, our wood backdrop and this rustic wooden baby bed.  He nestled in perfectly and we captured the sweetest sleepy moments.  Here is a favorite:

Motherhood…it’s a precious time for each mom to prepare for the upcoming arrival of her new little love.  Full of anticipation and excitement, moms are radiant during this special season of life.  We feel so honored to capture these treasured memories for Triad and Triangle families of North Carolina.

I met this gorgeous mom-to-be at this amazing location and we played in the sunlight until the sun set.  Her maternity portraits are full of sweet smiles, beautiful light, perfect wardrobe selections and natural beauty.  I adore this image of her gazing at her tummy with such a sweet expression, relishing this moment and embracing her sweet baby boy.

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.

This expectant mom booked a baby portrait plan very early, before she was even showing.  From the very beginning, she wanted a snow maternity photo shoot.  We waited for the perfect weather and when it arrived, we were ready to go!  We captured 3 completely different wardrobes and styles for her outdoor portion of the portrait session and several in studio as well.   Here are a few favorites from a casual look we captured…

With snow in the forecast, we had to share some of our snowy maternity portraits.  We have one space open this weekend if you wish to capture your special moments with a snowy backdrop of nature.  Email us now for details…
