ricks family!

I had such a wonderful time photographing the Ricks family this week! This sweet family is preparing to move to another state for work, so they wanted a session that reflected their time in North Carolina…so we went to their alma maters, UNC and Duke! It was fun spending a little time at both campuses…each are beautiful in their own ways!  The weather was perfect for their sessions, and you’d never guess that adorable Mr. Landon did NOT like my camera! (Not one bit!) But he was so cute and was up for playing games, which distracted him from my camera : ) 

Jessica, Christian and Landon, thanks for such a fun evening! North Carolina is sad to see you go, but I am excited for your next adventure! Thanks guys!

Sarah! These are amazing!! I can’t believe how great these turned out after all of Landon’s tears. : ) You are a miracle worker for sure! Thank you so very much!!

I just started editing this session but felt compelled to post a preview already…these little girls are TOO cute not to share! Miss London is about to turn 1, so her parents wanted some photographs in her traditional Korean clothes. She looked like a little Korean princess…I LOVED it! And Miss Kailey was one of the best behaved little girls I have photographed…she was so helpful with London. Such a great big sister!

Thank you so much Silvers family! I can’t wait to show you the images in a week or two. Your little girls are darling!

I recently had the unique privilege of photographing my friend Angela in her role as a yoga instructor, doula, and childbirth educator. She is branching out on her own as a doula and needed some photographs for her new website.  Angela is such a warm, calming person, as well as incredibly driven. I am so excited for her to share her talents with people of the Triangle as she begins her own business. She is going to bless the lives of so many people.

adorable baby greta!



I was so excited to get to photograph the darling Miss Greta, who recently turned one month old!  She is the luckiest of girls to have two amazing parents (her dad and my husband grew up together!) who are thrilled she is here and love her to pieces!  She has the most beautiful nursery, and since she didn’t want to sleep much for us, I was glad we were able to get some shots in her cute room while she was wide awake.

Little Greta, you are ADORABLE! I LOVED getting to photograph you today!

called to serve

I am so honored to post a few images from Joanna’s recent mini-mini session : ) Joanna, or I should say “Sister Ehrisman”, as she will be known for the next eighteen months, is leaving shortly to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico City, Mexico!  When I first met her she was twelve or thirteen maybe, and even then she was remarkable. I always knew she had great things in store for her. Her testimony of Jesus Christ and her determination to do what is right is such an example to me!

I have been so very blessed in my life—not only with good health, amazing family and friends, etc. but also with joy, peace and a sense of purpose. All of the good things in my life I can attribute to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I couldn’t be more proud of Joanna for sacrificing 18 months of her life to share the light and truth of the restored Gospel with the wonderful people of Mexico. I know the Gospel will bless their lives, just as it has mine.

Joanna, I am so proud of you! You will be a wonderful missionary.

P.S. If any other local youth are preparing to serve as full-time missionaries, I am happy to offer a complimentary mini-mini session. Please contact me if you are interested. : )

adam and alex are here!

I was so surprised and excited when I received an email from the Ashtons that they were expecting TWINS in January!  (I sometimes fall asleep at night dreaming that we are pregnant with twin boys–and we finally get to use all those boy names we’ve have been saving up!…but since that is probably not going to happen, I will just live through Ruth.)  Suffice it to say, I was incredibly honored to be able to photograph their adorable little bundles this week.

And let me just tell you, they were ADORABLE. Adam and Alex just slept and hugged each other like little angel babies. Big brother Evan was also very sweet with them. What lucky boys they are to have him as a big brother!

Ashtons, congratulations on your incredible baby boys! I am so grateful they arrived safe and sound without complication, and that I had the opportunity to photograph them. Thank you!

I was so excited to be able to go back to  Fairview Greenhouses and Garden Center to take some more photos for their newsletters!  Everyone that I met were incredibly kind and fun to photograph.  I just have a smile on my face the whole time I’m there.  The store and greenhouses themselves are BEAUTIFUL—even in the winter!

Heather and co, thank you so much for the opportunity to do another session. Y’all are the BEST!

I had a fantastic—albeit freezing—time with Alyssa and Ben this weekend! We met up in Raleigh for their mini session and don’t let the sun fool you—it was chilly! Alyssa and Ben were great sports though—I guess what is “cold” to me is nothing compared to Utah, where they will be getting married in March. : )

Thank you guys so much for giving me the opportunity to do some engagement pics for you while you were in town! I couldn’t be happier for you…congratulations!

sabow mini session!

001003 005008

This session got pushed back due to weather and we actually shot it on Christmas Eve! I normally never would’ve done a session on Christmas Eve, but the darling Sabow family was visiting from Florida and it was the only way we could make it work. It ended up working out perfectly because visiting grandparents were able to help watch my kids, and since it was a mini session I wasn’t gone long. Win-win! I loved the location they chose—downtown Apex. Sweet little Grace was ADORABLE even though it was chilly, and I seriously could’ve photographed them all day long.

Jenny and Jason, THANK YOU for the great mini session. I’m so glad we were able to squeeze this in. Y’all are a beautiful family.
