The Goldbergs | Family + Maternity | Greenville, NC

I had the best time with this family!  I met up with the Goldbergs on a Sunday afternoon in downtown Greenville. We walked, talked, and had some laughs.  The Goldbergs will be welcoming a new addition to the family soon and wanted to capture a few more memories before they become a family of four.  I do know that this new baby is going to love its new family… I know I sure do love them!  What’s not to love? Two great parents, an awesome big brother, and so much Pirate pride… it’s what all great families are made of!

Snow Day (s) – {Personal Post}

It snowed! That’s right, we got snow!!!!  I was so excited for like 5 minutes and then I was quickly over this mess.  There was one little boy who was quite the opposite and that was little man Wallace.  This kid woke up, looked right out the window and said “SNOW!!!!!!” Since EVERYTHING was shut down because us Eastern NC folks don’t play when it comes to any little bit of frozen precipitation, Eric and I were both able to stay home from work!  I got up and made a yummy breakfast and then we got a call from one of our favorite families to see if we wanted to play in the snow.  The Bone family headed over midday and we let Wallace and Logan play in the snow.  But as you can tell by the pictures, Larry had more fun than anyone else!  Snow turns everyone into a kid, right?  Lots of fun was had by everyone and then I decided to make snow cream for the very first time… according to Wallace it was amazing!  The kid ate 3 bowls! We were able to get outside for just a little bit today to build a snowman since the snow was finally packable. Wallace was determined that his snowman was going to have 4 arms!  Now that all the fun has been had, I’m ready for this stuff to melt and for life to get back to normal.  Hopefully these were the last snow days of the winter.  Where are you at spring?

The Hampton Family | Winterville, NC | Family Photography

I had a blast with this family on an early Sunday morning downtown Winterville, NC. The Hamptons actually live on the same street as me and are best friends with some of my friends but we have never had the chance to meet. I’m so glad they gave me a call so I could photograph them. They are so much fun and the kids are awesome. The kids are two giant balls of energy and have the greatest love hate brother sister relationship, which is so much fun to watch and capture. Thank you so much Hamptons for letting me tag along with you and photograph your beautiful family… it truly was a blast!

Teel Family |ECU Campus| Greenville, NC

Kate is a very dear friend of mine… and I’m so glad she calls me her photographer and friend. Not only is Kate amazing, her family is pretty awesome too. These die-hard Pirate fans are tons of fun but then again what Pirate isn’t, right? Little miss Emerson is turning two in just a few days and we definitely had to capture these precious little moments during this time in her life. I may be a little biased but I think ECU has one of the prettiest campuses and fall is one of my favorite times on campus. The leaves are changing color and the smell of football is in the air!

Thank you Teel family for letting me capture these memories… Go Pirates!

Katie + Family |Newborn Photography| Greenville, NC

The Wilson’s were just the sweetest family.  As soon as I walked into their home I felt so welcomed.  Baby Katie was only a few days old and Mom and Dad were running on absolutely no sleep but you couldn’t tell one bit… they were pros!  Speaking of pros… Katie’s big brother was awesome.  If Mom needed some helpburping Katie, big bro was there in a flash to lend a hand.  This baby girl is so loved and you couldn’t wipe the smiles off of the grandparents faces even if you tried.  I’m so honored this sweet family asked me to capture this precious time in their lives.  Welcome to the world sweet baby Katie!

Noah | 6 Months | Greenville, NC

This was the first time I have worked with Noah and his mom and dad and I just loved them so much.  Hello… How gorgeous is this family???  Noah is definitely a perfect combo of his momma and daddy.  Poor Noah is going through the whole teething process just like every other 6 month old so he was a little unhappy but that didn’t stop us from getting some pretty cute shots.  Happy 6 months little cutie!
