SOOOOO behind.  So very behind.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the C kids and their amazing parents late last week.  I loved finally getting to meet these beauties and am so glad we had some great light to play with!!  Thank you Kristy for bringing your beautiful family out to the studio late last week…on with your sneak peeks!!


All photogs should know what an accomplishment this is…I think belly lying position is my fave for sibling shots in this age group!



LOVE this pout face!



This baby girl is such a sweetie pie.  What a beautiful family!

I had the most amazing time this past weekend seeing one of my favorite subjects John and had an opportunity to meet his gorgeous sister!!  They came out to the studio to be photographed amongst the rustic urban setting of my downtown Wilmington studio.  John has THE MOST amazing eyes and lashes and his sister didn’t fair too badly herself.  Such gorgeous kids.  Thank you Renée for allowing myself (and my mentee MaryAnn) to photograph your gorgeous children!  …on with the sneak peeking:



and introducing the little sis:



…and finally a thank you to MaryAnn who was an awesome student for this past weekend’s

    LOVE these – so beautiful and different. The baby is completely angelic!

I had the great pleasure of meeting beautiful E and her gorgeous mom mid week.  It was a gorgeous afternoon for photos and we opted to photograph around the studio for a Marmalade Urban Session.  Here are a couple of sneak peeks of a personality filled beauty:

Oh the beautifully crazy, lovable M Family–how I’ve missed you guys!!  Seriously I had the most amazing & fun time this past weekend when you guys came out to the studio and we trekked off to the waterfall for a Marmalade Location session.  M Family…you guys rock my world.  Thank you for once again allowing me into your lives to capture images of handsome J and to meet little R and photograph her too.  On with the sneak peeks (while I go scratch some of these mosquito bites from this past weekend!  LOL)

Did I mention we had a "sword" fight at our session too?

Seriously guys it was great fun seeing you again!!  Up until this past weekend little J was still super little J to me in the photo that sits in my office above my computer.  Isn’t he ADORABLE here?
